A lace pullover designed by Melissa Wehrle
Wool People Vol. 12
Printed pattern, 16 pages

From Brooklyn Tweed: Designed for transitional weather, Culswick is a relaxed and oversized piece that is uncomplicated in shape yet polished and well-crafted in fit and detail. Its allover lace patterning brings to mind intricate latticework, with a subtle transparency that invites soft layering and breezy wearing. Worked in fine-gauge Peerie, Culswick is light as a cloud and drapes like a dream, while remaining substantial enough to weather gracefully with time.

The body is worked circularly from the bottom up to the underarms, then divided to work the back and front separately. The sleeves are worked circularly to the armholes and the neckband is picked up and worked after garment assembly. The allover lace motif is worked from charts only.
