Wrap yourself in timeless style when you wear this ethereal ballet-style sweater.  Knit from the bottom up, the pattern begins with a softly textured trim of twisted stitches that unfurls into a striking back panel.  You’ll love watching the graceful Eyelet Leaves pattern undulate and swoop along the fronts as you knit.  The sleeves gently taper to form a delicate and feminine flounce at the wrist.  Finish this stunning project with ties that flatter any body type and enjoy the envious looks you’re sure to encounter.

This pattern was originally released as St Petersburg, but we’ve decided to change the name to Miami, as we feel it suits it better.  The pattern is exactly the same, so if you’ve already downloaded this, you don’t need to download it again.

Note re Eyelet Leaves It is difficult to measure and get an accurate stitch count because of the changing orientation of the stitches. The stitch gauge was taken by measuring the entire width of the 37 stitch pattern and dividing by the width. The row count is taken at the center, most vertical part, of the pattern.
