Agatha is a seamless top down sweater with lace panels and cuffed set in sleeves. The body is knit first in one piece and then the sleeves are picked up and worked using short rows. The pattern is written instructions and the lace panels are offered as both written instructions and charts.

The sweater flatters retro dresses and was inspired by vintage cabled sweaters. The lace panels mimic the look of cables and help to keep the sweater from being overly warm for fall.

The sweater is meant to be worn with 2-3 inches of negative ease. The size M is modeled on a 40 inch bust.
