The sweater is mainly worked in stocking stitch with a
lace pattern that runs up each side on the front, yokes
front and back and up sleeves. You can knit it with either
short or long sleeves and you will need some crochet
knowledge for finishing the neckline. It has two flowers
you attach either side of the front neck open and a
matching belt with large buckle.

A crochet hook. A hook fastener and a buckle for the belt.

The needles are old U.K sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help with modern and US sizes
