A lovely springtime/summertime knit.

Despite the relatively fine gauge, it knits up quite quickly thanks to the cropped length and three-quarter sleeves (directions for full sleeves are included, though, if those are more your style) and the cotton/modal blend is cool and silky and keeps its shape. It’s done mostly in stockinette stitch (except, obviously, for the lace which is very easy) with some short-row shaping thrown in to keep you on your toes.

If you’re like me and like to see what other people have done with the pattern there are some nice examples on Ravelry. As always, please let me know if you have questions!
