Pretty Petal begs for a garden party or fancy-dress tea in the dappled shade with some favorite bears. A tracery of twisted stitches and mock cables grows top down from a circular yoke. Botanical lace ornaments the shoulders, hem, and cuffs, and a dainty row of pearly buttons enhances the vintage appeal. Choose a neutral shade to complement any outfit, a soft pastel for girlish charm, or even a bold red to suit a spirited personality. Worked seamlessly in Loft, this delicate beauty is a pleasure to knit and the perfect topper for special occasions.
