This is a long-sleeved, fitted, short sweater. Features include lace panels on the front, back, and sleeves against a stockinette background. It is finished with a knit band up the front and around the neck. Neckline decreases are done in a lace panel, which can be challenging. There are no buttons or other closures.
Because Cascades Fixation contains elastic, it appears to use less yardage than a non-elastic yarn. The samples used 700 yds (640 M) of Fixation and 800 yds (732 M) of SWTC Bamboo for the small size. I've calculated another 100 yds (92 M) of yarn required for each size larger.
The pattern includes a schematic of the sweater, charts and written directions for the lace designs, and general instructions for three sizes.
Seven stitch markers and a stitch holder are recommended.
