Odylon Lace V-neck
A very lacey sweater with positive ease, a rather long knit with small size needles. The final effect is worth all the effort, time and patience.
The sweater is knit in the round, bottom-up, with set-in sleeves that are knit separately to ensure perfect fit. It’s bordered with garter and with side garter strips and a picked-up neckband.
Depending wheter you are a tight or a loose knitter, you can choose yarn ranging from Lace/2 ply, through Light Fingering/3 ply, Fingering/4 ply up to Sport/5ply, essential is to get the gauge right.
Gauge: 25 stitches and 35 rows in stockinette = 10x10cm / 4x4 inches
The amount of yarn will depend on the yarn weight, size of the sweater, its desired length and the length of the sleeves.
The lace pattern is easy to follow and requiers some basic lace skills - increasing, decreasing and yarnovers. The pattern is written and charted.
A very rewarding knit. Not only is the sweater a perfect wear for a chilly summer evening when you want a little warmth, but also for any day in the year when you put it over a contrasting garment like a turtle neck and enjoy the play of colour.
