A pretty sweater with a v-neck front and back and symmetrical slanting lace patterns. This sweater is knit from the top down – we work the neckline in four panels for the front and back right/left shoulders, then join them up to knit the body. Stitches are picked up round the armholes to form the sleeves.

The lace pattern repeat is quite wide, which means the gap between sizes is quite large. To counterbalance this and to make the sizing more inclusive, we worked samples in both wool and alpaca. The alpaca yarn loosens up a lot more after blocking, giving a different range of sizes to the wool yarn. We include sizings for both – yarn choice one gives a more snug fit than yarn choice two if you are undecided which to pick. Don’t feel you must use either wool or alpaca either, try different needle sizes to get the gauge of either yarn. The Dairsie Sweater sample photographed was knit in alpaca yarn, and the sister pattern Dairsie Cardiagn was knit with wool yarn. They were both

I’m still in the middle of this but I love it! This is my first time knitting I-chords and knitting a cami, really. Instructions were incredibly clear and easy to follow! I’m already planning on a second one!

Love, love, love, this pattern. I had to write it out so I can fallow the instructions. (I'm a beginner) But after doing so can follow it with out a problem. I am knitting it in a lovely Lion Brand Heartland called Great Smoky Mountains.
