I am rather fond of ladybugs. They are so delightfully hemispherical.
-- Gail Carriger
(I rather agree!)

This is a pattern for a stranded colourwork pullover. It is worked in the round and from the top down.

This garment is intended to be worn with a bit of positive ease since Lettlopi is usually not worn against bare skin. Adjustments may be made for best fit.

Please see schematic (page 8) for all approximate finished sizes. There are 6 rounds in which you may work with 3 colours OR work with 2 coloiurs and complete with Duplicate Stitch.

Also included are symbol charts without colour (pages 10 - 12) and a small desctiption of the Ladderback/Invisible Jacquard (page 9) if you would like to use this over areas with long floats.
