Pure Mesh Pullover is a tight fish net sweater with full sleeves. All sizes can be knit with one skein of La Bien Aimee Felix. This sweater is knit flat, bottom up and seamed. The low yardage and large needles make this a quick, satisfying, and sexy knit, tag me on Instagram @JamesNWatts and use the hashtag #PureMeshPullover

This sweater is knit flat, bottom up. The shoulders, sleeves, and sides are seamed using mattress stitch, a relaxing and satisfying technique that I love! Stitches are picked up and knit in the round for the ribbed collar. knitting the sweater flat keeps the lace mindlessly simple.

La Bien Aimée Felix works beautifully in this pattern. All nine sizes from XS to 5X can be knit with just one skein of Felix, making this a very financially accessible garment pattern to try out a luxury yarn.

Feel free to substitute any laceweight yarn that gets gauge and that you like the fabric of when used in this pattern. Some test knitters even used crochet thread!
