     This top-down piece has all the makings for the ideal Summer sweater! It’s lightweight, worked in-the-round and adorned with a decorative lattice pattern encircling the yoke. The slight A-line shaping and hi-low hem allow it to flow freely, making it comfortable and flattering in the warmer weather. What’s more, we added a long sleeve version for those who prefer to wear this in cooler climates! We made our summer version in a bright speckled color and reserved the deeper, semi-solid hue for our long sleeve version. Now we don’t have to choose!

    • Both charted and written instructions are available for the yoke patterning.
    • Hi-low hem at bottom is achieved using short rows.
