Pat­tern Notes

Lower edges and right front are shaped us­ing short rows; hide all wraps when you come to them on sub­se­quent rows.

When work­ing short rows in Lace pat­tern, do not work a yarn over without a cor­re­spond­ing de­crease and vice versa. Work af­fected stitches in stock­inette stitch.

When text refers to spe­cific stitches in Lace pat­tern, re­fer to num­bers be­low stitch col­umns on chart.

When shap­ing neck and arm­holes, work de­creases as fol­lows: Work k1, k2­tog at be­gin­ning of right-side rows and ssk, k1 at end. Work p1, ssp at be­gin­ning of wrong-side rows and p2­tog at end.

Lower fronts have 4-stitch garter edg­ings that are knit along with the pieces.
