Empire Waist Cap Sleeve Pullover

I love working with textured stitches, and I think that the Openwork Rib used here in the sleeves works very well with the simple Eyelet Pattern I used for the body. The tie below the bust will accentuate your figure, and the shaping at the sides will allow the pullover to skim your hips nicely. Wear this piece on its own, or pair it with its matching cardigan, Pattern #165.

The pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces.

The lace patterns are presented in both written and charted formats.
