Estelle Pullover by Jennifer Wood

 

Here is the sister pattern of the Estelle cardigan. A lovely pullover that is based on the same lace pattern. Even though this one has a bit more lace it is still a quick knit! For this one also I used the new Shibui yarn Birch! It is very soft with a delicate halo, altogether lovely!

Estelle Pullover by Jennifer WoodGauge: 20 sts and 30 rows = 4″/10 cm in Stockinette Stitch with 1 strand of each yarn held together

Notes:

This sweater is a compound raglan constructed from the top down in one piece. This style allows for a more flattering fit because the rate of increase varies, thus more accurately following the shape of the body. It increases more rapidly between the neck and shoulders and at the end to curve around the underarm, but more gradually in the section in between.

This pullover is designed with negative ease in the bust. If you desire a looser fit work one size bigger. The waist shaping may be omitted if you desire a straighter fit. Body length is easily adjusted.

Hold 1 strand of each yarn together throughout pattern. A DK weight yarn may be used in place of two fingering weight yarns.
