Two different weights of yarn combine to create this romantically fashioned pullover. A worsted weight yarn creates the body, knit from the top down with raglan yoke sleeves. A laceweight yarn creates the neck insert for a gauzy, dramatically draped fabric.

I LOVE this design!! All my most fave garments have period influences, and this is a terrific example of taking a period detail and updating it for modern wear. Kudos to Amy Polcyn for a gorgeous design, and many thanks to Interweave for sharing it with us! I can't wait to try this one! More like this, please! :-)
