FO: Chinese Lace Pullover
Finally finished with this white cotton pullover.



Worked a modified neckline. The original was a boat neck, which a lot of
knitters complained about, saying it choked up onto their neck, didn't stay
down on the collarbone area.



I'm not a designer or pattern writer...so this modified neckline took me forever to figure out. Then because I of the different shape...the pattern neck edge didn't work either. It called for the ribbing to be continued up. So I worked an attached i-cord, and I must say I like it very much.

My Ravelry notes.

Thats so pretty! I don't like boat or crew neck sweaters at all. This neck looks nice with the design.

Love this neckline and the I-cord is just right with it. Beautiful, beautiful sweater and a much nicer overall look than the boat neck.

Indeed, flawless knitting - and so evenly!

I like the shape of it. I imagine it flares out around the hips and the lower arms. That leaf(?)-pattern is cute and wonderfully combined with the vertical lines. It works well together. And to do it in one colour really gives the pattern the possibility to 'pop'.

Wonderful.
