Levina is a comfortable and feminine pullover, worked in a peekaboo all-over lace pattern. Ostrich Plumes lace is easy to work and knits up in a jiffy on larger needles. The gorgeous yarn is Jill Draper’s superwash merino, which is smooth, soft, and a joy to knit with (the colour is awesome too!).
Levina is knit seamlessly from the bottom up, in the round, with raglan sleeves. The flattering ballet neck is lowered in the front using short rows, and the simple long sleeves are edged with deep garter stitch cuffs.
Meant to be worn with zero or positive ease. For the best fit, measure a sweater you like the fit of, and make the size closest to it. Shown in size 38.25” / 95.5cm with 2” / 5cm ease.
