From Ravelry pattern page:
This sweet little sweater knits up quickly from the top down. The combination of mohair lace and single-ply merino creates a fabric that is floaty, soft and sensual. With a high-low hemline and two length options, what’s not to love?
Note: the lace pattern is both charted and written
0-6 mo (6-12 mo, 1-2 yrs, 2-4 yrs, 4-6 yrs, 6-8 yrs, 8-10 yrs, Adult XS, S, M, L, XL-XXL, 3XL-4XL)
Finished Chest Measurement: 24.5 (25.5, 26.5, 28.6, 30.5, 32.5, 34.5, 38.5, 41.5, 44.5, 48.5, 56.5, 66.5)
We recommend using a blend of fingering yarn + mohair lace weight, but if you substitute we suggest using a DK weight yarn.
Sock or fingering weight yarn held with lace weight mohair yarn - yardage given is for COMBINED yarn; so if your size calls for 600 yds, it requires 600 yds of the sock weight yarn, plus 600 yds of lace weight mohair yarn.
Cropped length: 200 (220, 240, 300, 350, 400, 450, 550, 600, 650, 750, 900, 1100) yards
Regular length: 225 (250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 600, 650, 750, 850, 1050, 1250) yards
We suggest choosing a size with between 4 and 12” positive ease relative to your chest measurement.
16 sts & 24 rounds / 4” in stockinette using larger needles
US #7 / 4.5mm & US #10 / 6.0mm

We recommend reading about yarn care before washing and working with the yarn. Although every effort is made to exhaust the dye bath of color you may find a little color bleed on the first washes.
*** I try to depict the true color of yarn but please remember each monitor will be different. If you have any questions regarding the color, feel free to drop me an email.
