Jeanette

Jeanette is a pullover with three-quarter sleeves and upper bodice worked in ribbon lace (an easily mastered 9 stitch by 20 row repeat). This piece is slim-fitting and extends mid-hip length with garter stitch trimming. Worked bottom-up, the lower portion begins as one piece on circular needles, until the starting point of the lace just below the underarm where it splits and each side is worked separately. Circular knitting on trims.
