Nelly was my dad's aunt and I was a little girl when I knew her. She sold newspapers in the underground subway station at Park Street in Boston. It's not likely she ever had a sweater as nice as this, but she certainly deserved one. For you, Nelly.
This is a slim fitted, lace covered pullover. Its narrow sleeves are generously long. The lace, named alternating leaf, is an easily mastered 10 stitch by 12 row repeat. Pieces are knit flat, bottom up, with seaming.
