ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
Hello fellow yarnies! My name is Ashlie and I am the designer behind Brindle Babe Designs. I love creating simple yet beautiful western boho style knit and crochet patterns that require as little seaming as possible, can I get an amen?!
Today I'm bringing you lightweight pullover sweater perfect for the transitions between seasons. This pattern has a fun lace stitch that is simple to work and has great stitch definition. 
NOTES
Sweater is worked in 4 pieces, 2 body panels and 2 sleeves. Both body panels are identical. Each body panel is worked from the bottom up. Sleeves are worked flat from the top down, they are then attached to the body panels and seamed along the bottom. Chain 1 and 2 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch. Pattern is made up of a 4 row repeat. The sweater is designed with 4” of positive ease. If you are in between sizes please size up.
