Fortune Sweater - Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern
The Fortune Sweater is a lightweight and beautiful sweater that will be equally at home in the office, for a dinner date or weekend brunching with friends.
It is worked seamless from the top down with raglan increases on the yoke. The sleeves are three-quarter long. The sweater is worked in stockinette stitch with a clover eyelet pattern. First, the neck edge is worked in rib, then folded double and knitted together. Next, short rows are worked to shape the neckline. At the same time as the short rows and raglan increases are worked, the clover eyelet pattern is worked – take care to place the clover pattern correctly, so it is symmetrical and comes together correctly under the armholes.
The sweater is knit holding two strands of mohair silk lace weight yarns held together.
The sweater is designed to have approximately 15-25cm of ease (the finished garment to be 15-25cm larger than your bust circumference).
