I love the lace work at the bottom and sleeves. Very unique. What pattern did you use for the lace? Also, is that a cable that runs up the sides?

What an inspiration you are!
The lace pattern is from

pattern #14. I found this site on KH -- probably from you, Antares. I put part of the lace pattern down the sides -- the same as on the sleeves -- and a part of the overall lace pattern. I had to crunch the numbers pretty hard (lots of scratch paper), to get the repeats to work out at the bottom of the sweater -- but it worked! On the sleeves, I just had to dec. 2 sts. for it to work.

Thanks for your kind words.
Betty
