Lacy pullover

This is the Cropped Eyelet Pullover from Vogue Knitting spring/summer 2019. I've had this worsted weight Euroflax linen in my stash for years and I was happy to find a suitable pattern for it. I had tried some other pattern earlier but gave up because the yarn was just too heavy. It is still heavy butthat's okay since the sweater drapes nicely. This sweater did come out a bit larger than I liked because the lacy pattern grew as I knitted and handled it over time. I threw it in the washer and dryer once before adding armhole ribbing and again after I finished the ribbing. It fits well enough now but will probably stretch with wear so I think this is one of those garments that will get washed a lot. The washing did soften it and improved the draping. My version is not as cropped as pattern's and I just added some armhole ribbing instead of doing sleeves. I think I did my own neckline shaping to get the fit I like. This works well for warmer fall days and I can wear a longer sleeved tee when it gets colder. This linen yarn is pretty darn sturdy.

This looks really nice. I really like your styling of it, too.. At least it's machine washable, even if you have to wash it often. Chloe
