Marjorie

All focus is on the sleeves in this sweet pullover.  Introducing Marjorie, a feminine design with three quarter raglan sleeves worked in delicate Diamond Mesh lace. The fit is slim and shapely, extending hip length, with bodice worked simply in stockinette. This piece has minimal seaming (on sleeves and raglan edges of bodice), only a small amount of stitch pickup for collar trim, and an easily memorized lace – a 12 stitch by 20 row repeat. Marjorie is worked bottom-up on circular needles until the underarm and start of raglan shaping where it splits and each side is worked separately.
