My main design in this issue is a gorgeous lacy sweater knitted in Katia Merino. The lacy pattern and stylish cowl neck make this a flattering top that can be dressed up for a smart dinner or office do.
The sweater has batwing sleeves so they are worked in one piece with the body. Stitches are picked up for the cowl collar which is worked in the round in stocking stitch. There are written and charted instructions for the lace pattern.
There's always a free gift included with Let's Knit and this time the free gift is a bundle of 3 balls of lace weight yarn and a lace leaflet. The leaflet has a selection of lace patterns, several of which use the free yarn. I designed the main lace shawl using the free yarn. This shawl is a half hexagon shape worked from the top down. Alternating between garter stitch and a simple lace pattern makes this a perfect first lace shawl or an easy knit for experienced knitters.
