Gorgeous lacy stitch pattern for a summer sweater or shawl.

I want some sunshine and warm weather... warm enough to put on a lacy sweater like the one that can be knitted with this beautiful stitch pattern.
The swatch was made with Knitca Lovely yarn (100% bamboo) and it looks and feels great - lustrous and soft. I plan to make a sweater with this stitch pattern, I don't think my busy schedule will leave me time to make it before summer comes, but at least I can dream of it... When I make this sweater it will be white...

You can make it any color you want, check bamboo yarn color card here.

Repeat rows 1-24 till necessary for completing your project.

You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is shown between lines A and A.

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart) and stitches in wrong side row from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier for you the number of each row is shown at the beginning of row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in circle and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
Happy knitting!
