Simplicity in Lace is an easy yet, elegant top-down raglan pullover that only requires basic knitting skills. If you are a beginner knitter, you shouldn’t shy away from attempting this project. Only two basic lace knitting stitches are required: purl two together (p2tog) and yarn over (yo).
This pullover is cast on at the neck edge and worked in rounds down to the bust. At this point, the sleeves are separated from the body, and worked separately. The knitting continues through the body with optional waist shaping down to the hem. Finally, the sleeves are knitted in rounds from the top down.
Gauge: 20 stitches x 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch on size US 5 (3.75 mm) needles; measured on a washed and blocked flat swatch. You are advised to ensure that both your stitch and row gauges are accurate.
Difficulty: Easy (raglan seam increases; knitting in the round; picking up stitches from a finished edge).

get gauge), Size US 3 (3.25 mm) for ribbing
