"Blithe" Nymph Pullover

Take an ordinary man's sweater, shrink it, cut out the neck and shorten the arms. Pull at the front motif until the stitches are far apart. Now you've almost achieved the look of Dickensian delicacy offered by this design. You, the wearer, are soft and womanly and the heroine of your own life story. This sweater's beautifully carved neck, exposed forearm, front cable and lace panel, and figure-stressing grip all combine strength with femininity in a way that's almost heartbreaking. Back neck, waist, and shoulders are all shaped, and sleeves are set in. Knitted with two strands of yarn held together, and the gauge reflects this.
