As you all know, this pattern has been in the making for quite a while (nearly 6 months to be exact!), so I'm absolutely ecstatic about finally being able to release this pattern!
I hope you all love it as much as I do, and I look forward to seeing your sweaters, if you decide to make a Julissa of your own! :)
By the way... For those of you who have already purchased the pattern for the original Julissa on Ravelry, a discount will automatically reflect in your cart when you purchase the pattern for this version using the same Ravelry username. If you are purchasing both patterns at the same time, a discount will reflect in your cart as well :)
ABOUT THIS PATTERN
This rendition of Julissa puts a new spin on the original, boat-necked pullover. The lower, scooped neckline along with a bit of waist shaping and flattering sleeve length all together create a modestly flirty and feminine piece that will complement a variety of body types.
This pullover is knit seamlessly from the top down using raglan shaping and a worsted weight yarn, which lends beautiful stitch definition to the cable and lace details. Choose from cap or three-quarter length sleeves and wear with a neutral or colored camisole underneath.
