The Promise of Spring is often what keeps us going in the last, cold, gray days of Winter. Knit your own Promise of Spring and no matter what the weather is doing outside, you will feel like the sun is shining on your knitting basket. Designed with easily wearable raglan shaping and tips for adjusting the fit to your own body, this sweater will surely be a favorite. Knit from the bottom up in the round, a simple lace edging highlights the lower edge of both sweater and sleeves. A solid stockinette body has just enough substance to ward off a chilly Spring breeze. Small flowers and budding branches adorn the yoke and the sleeves, which fall loosely to the elbows. By working in the round, there are no seams to sew, only a bit of grafting in the underarms. Charted lace designs and simple construction make this a good design for an adventurous beginner.
