EUCALYPTUS PULLOVER

The lace panels of the Eucalyptus Pullover are inspired by afghans that the designer’s grandmother has made. This lightweight sweater is worked from the top down in one piece, with raglan shaping. Short-rows are used at the neck for the best fit and at the bottom for a slanted hemline.
