Liesl is my current ‘go-to’ sweater in the summer heat. (I know, it’s really hot outside, sweaters aren’t at the top of your sartorial to-do list. But we all have places to be where a little modesty is required, and even more of us have parts we’re self conscious about and want to cover up.) This incarnation of Liesl is super light weight and totally open an lacy, very summery. The pattern is super easy, extremely well written, and the lace is beginner friendly.
We made a few modifications, you can check out Our Project Notes. Since we changed the yarn size we wen’t down a needle size and up one garment size, and it came out perfect! It’s also a very economical knit, we only used two skeins of Cascade Ultra Pima. You could also take advantage of our SUMMER SALE and up-sell yourself to a linen like Louet Euroflax Sport or Quince & Co Sparrow. Heck, it’s so affordable and such a fast knit, if you like it you could make a whole stack of Liesls, one for every day of the week!
