Liesl is my absolute favorite  ‘go-to’ warm weather sweater (I wear it around the store all summer). This incarnation of Liesl is SUPER light weight and totally open and lacy, very summery. The pattern is super easy, extremely well written, and the lace is totally beginner friendly.

We made a few modifications, you can check out Our Project Notes. Since we changed the yarn size we went 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.  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!
