Reverie is a return to romance, perfect to throw on for a night of dinner by candlelight on the terrace and for the days of fall when a slight chill clings in the shade. The pattern is suitable for intermediate lace knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.

Reverie is available for individual purchase for $7.

The sample is worked in Plucky Traveler Sport, which will be available in sweater quantities in an update on Friday, July 11 at noon EST. Primo Sport, which is a lovely substitute, will also be sold in sweater quantities during the update. This is a perfect time to start getting ready for your Plucktember projects. Please note that Reverie will not be available as a kit.

construction

The body is worked flat, in one piece to the armholes, where fronts and back are divided and worked flat separately. Extensions on each of the fronts form the collar. After the shoulders are seamed, the extensions are joined and seamed to the back neck. The saddle sleeves are worked flat separately, set into the body, and the saddles are seamed along the front and back shoulder edges and neck extensions. Buttons are optional and can be added once the project is complete, as yarnovers are used for buttonholes.
