    This design features a scoop-neck sleeveless shell or sweater with short, three-quarter, or long sleeves and feminine, flattering floral trim (optional).  In addition, this pattern is quick and easy to knit up.  Choose solid color, or use shading in your appliqué flowers for added dimension!  For best results, please follow all instructions exactly.    


    Spring and summer are the seasons for pretty, feminine tops that you can dress up or down, wear with a nice skirt or under a suit, or with your favorite pair of jeans.  I think this pattern works well for all those purposes.  Featuring a flattering scoop neck and easy fit, with optional flower embellishments at the neckline, this sweater, whether sleeveless, short-sleeved, long-sleeved, or with three-quarter sleeves, is great on its own, or under a tailored jacket.


    The gauge is **5 sts = 1” on a size 6 needle** with **worsted weight yarn**.  See schematics for finished sizes.  Three sizes are included – the **Smal**l has a chest measurement of **38**”; the **Medium** measures **42”**, and the **Large is 46”** when worked in the gauge specified.  If you desire a 40” or a 44”, try making the small with a heavier yarn and/or a larger needle.  Similarly, you can make adjustments on the large pattern by changing your gauge there, too.

     .  If you’d like your cell sack smaller or larger, adjust your needle size and weight of yarn.  I’ve provided you with stitch-by-stitch, row-by-row directions to make life easier and ensure your success.  

     

    Here is what you will need (amounts are for sleeveless shell, short-sleeved, ¾ sleeved, and long-sleeved sweater::


    **Yarns**  (worsted-weight) – 6 (8, 9, 11) sk MC @ 109 yds 

                                               small amounts of CCs as desired for flowers and leaves


    **Needles**:  size 4 and 6 straight, or size to obtain desired gauge

                     16” circular needle #4 (sleeveless version)

                     24” circular needle #4 for neckline trim (all sweaters)

                     crochet hook size C

                                                         

    I also recommend a magnetic board or Post-its to help you keep your place.


    Optional appliquer flowers, but also pretty when knitted plain!
