Due to the reprehensible and ongoing theft of The Hare Moon (detailed further here; if you’re annoyed by it feel free to let her know), I’m no longer posting free patterns from my personal stash. HOWEVER, as I’ve pointed out this resource before and extracted patterns from it for those who might not want to slog through an enormous PDF of free patterns (knitting and sewing), I feel it’s safe to do so again. Particularly as I knitted up a sample of the ‘new fancy stitch’ to see just how new and fancy it really was (answer: quite).
The pattern features ‘fancy stitch’ stripes along the body and a larger chunk at the shoulder shaping. The top is worked in two pieces, though this wouldn’t be hard to work in the round up to the arms for minimal seaming.
This lacy pattern would look nice repeated, creating a diamonds-within-a-diamond motif. Enjoy!
