Selene Pullover

£4.00
Lace v-neck raglan makes for a great go-to sweater. The simple lace makes it feminine, and the deep v-neck is flattering for all kinds of figures. The fit is relaxed and casual. The body and sleeves are knit in the round and then joined for the raglan yoke, so there is no seaming. The ribbed neckline is picked up and knit after the body is finished.

Subtle waist shaping is achieved by changing needle size. Because the v-neck gives lots of room at the bust and the lace is stretchy, knit the size closest to your bust measurement and round down if you are between sizes.
