This is *Katherine*, a summery shell of chevron lace. This quick knit is figure-hugging and extends hip length. You’ll find the 9 stitch by 8 row lace pattern repeat is easily mastered, creating just enough stitch variety to keep the project interesting while flying off the needles. Add a belt for a pop of color, or wear it without accessories to reveal a sleek and slim silhouette. This piece is worked bottom-up on circular needles, splitting at the armholes where it is worked flat. Its trim, a few garter rows, is spawned from stitches picked up along the hem, armholes, and neckline. REQUIRED TECHNIQUES: knit; purl; garter stitch; circular knitting; k2tog; skp; yo; long-tail CO; stitch pick up around neckline, armhole, and hem; blocking; and seaming.
