notes
a. Laoise is a cropped sweater, with cable stitch motifs at the front central panel and sleeves. Laoise is an interpretation of traditional aran sweaters. It has a “V” neckline, bishop / balloon sleeves in smaller proportions for a contemporary look. I like to think that Laoise has the characteristics of an all-day sweater, with some cute and stylish details!

b. This pullover is knit from the top down, with the v - neck worked back and forth flat. The knitting is then joined in the round after the v - neck is complete. The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the top down. The collar, cuffs and hem are worked in 1 X 1 Rib Stitch.

c. The back neck is shaped with simple short rows, with no wraps to pick up.
