It's fun to explore what lace can look like when it's not used as an all-over pattern. The front and back of this pullover are knit from the bottom up. The Eyelet Lace pattern eventually fades into a background of reverse stockinette stitch toward the right shoulder. Shoulders are joined with a three-needle bind-off, and sleeves are knit downward to the cuff. The right sleeve is worked in all-over lace to continue where the body leaves off, while the left sleeve is plain reverse stockinette stitch to mimic the left side of the body.
