What happens when Shetland lace merges with 2 large garter-stitch rectangles? The result is a generously sized pullover with poncho shaping. The lace patterns provide verticality to the relaxed silhouette, making a "boxy" knit that flatters.
Slip the first stitch of every row purlwise with yarn in front.
To transition to a new ball of yarn, join new yarn at the second stitch from the edge, then alternate between new and old yarn every 2 rows for 8 rows. If a more even look is desired, alternate between 2 balls throughout piece.
