I’m so excited to introduce you to the Summer Sweetheart Sweater in the June issue of I Like Knitting!

I love this sweater, and I’m actually knitting another one at the moment. Here are some reasons I love it:

-Knit in the round with shaping so that it’s very flattering to your figure
-Knit with worsted weight yarn so it knits up rather quickly
-Features a circular yoke collar so you can continue knitting in the round!
-The lace yoke features crossed stitches to give it a bit of interest and texture
-Sweetheart Neckline!!

Details:
Even though the days are getting warmer, it’s still important to keep a few light sweaters like this one around for a cool night out. This knit piece has lovely geometric-shaped lace at the top and hints at a sweetheart neckline. Knit in the round from the bottom up, it works up rather quickly and switches to lace for the yoke.
