Poplar & Elm

by Carol Sunday

Poplar and Elm - my newest sweater pattern is in Twist Collective's  beautiful Spring/Summer '10 issue.

2 lacey leaf patterns - an open lace for sleeves and "closed" lace for the body of this ballet-style wrap sweater.

The sweater is knit in 5 pieces from the bottom up.

I love this stitch pattern!
