FO: My "Not Arlene" Shortsleeved Pullover
Antares' "Almost Arlene" sweater was the inspiration for this sweater which I call "Not Arlene." I knitted it from the top down using the formula in Ann Budd's "Top Down Sweaters." The lace is Oriel from Barbara Walker's "Second Treasury." The yarn is a bamboo-cotton-nylon blend, and it is perfect for South Florida. I used size 6 needles. I added the small garter stitch border at the neck after the body of the sweater was finished. I used a sewn bind-off, which is quite stretchy.
