I designed this sweater especially for my mom. She wanted a lightweight sweater to wear in the evening down in Florida after the sun went down, and after pouring over dozens of lace patterns together, this sweater was born.

This sweater is knit bottom-up to the armholes, then separates for front and back. The set-in-sleeves are picked up and knit from the arm holes and short rows are used to make a sleeve cap. Lace pattern is BOTH charted and written out.
