TKGA members, view this pattern here.
I love knitting sweaters that have a fun and unique construction. In this pattern, I’ve incorporated knitting side to side with some lace patterns for a burst of fun and a moderately challenging beginning. Then the knitting gets super simple with the Stockinette stitch body, and it comes back to something really enjoyable at the end by knitting the sleeves in lace. To me, knitting is an adventure, and I love designing patterns in a way that makes them an enjoyable journey, as well as a well-loved finished piece. This is a pattern I really think you and your needles will love to make!
