Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date…Sweater is knit in the round to the armholes, where stitches are added to make a short, graceful sleeve, the lace begins. Sweater is worked flat from here to the shoulders. The stitch is easy to knit, if you are vigilant. The stitch count changes on you, but if you’re off it shows right away. Tips are included in the pattern to help keep track of how many stitches should be on the needle at any given point.
Summer's Lease is also available as part of Dog Days of Summer, a three-pattern ebook celebrating those hot, lazy days near the end of summer.
