The sleeves are simpler, with just a column of the lace pattern down the centre, making shaping very easy. They're also a nice length, finishing just above the wrist. The neckline is finished in crochet, which is a clever idea as the stretchy fabric would otherwise gape, the crochet pulls it in and creates a firm edge which does not stretch.Here's a close-up of the patterns. The bottom edge has two patterns, the first creating a scalloped edge and the second is the cockleshell pattern itself. The main body is done in columns of alternating lace and cockleshell, quite easy once you have learned it. This is likely to be my last knit for summer, though I still have some hemp yarn to play with. I have lots of other projects to work on though, to try to use up all the stuff I have bursting out of cupboards!
