I am looking for a pattern for the sweater of my dreams.  This is what it looks like:

-lacy, not necessarily lace per say, but open.  like fine yarn on large needles, fuzzy mohair type yarn.

-tunic style, preferably with a wide or boat neck and raglan shaping.

-and with slightly flared sleeves, though I could handle altering a pattern to achieve this.

Has anyone seen or knit a sweater like this?

Thanks!

...but sans chest fur stripe. I made it without it and love it.
It should be easy enough to get a tunic look--just knit longer from the bottom cast-on edge. For a wider neck just stop the neckline earlier (the ribbon will allow you to adjust width of neckline as well) and as you said, the flared sleeves are an easy fix too.

thank you!  Your top is looking fantastic so far!  (I chickened out of the olympics; flat feet is my excuse) My problem is that my lace doesnt line up; did you do increases on the RS/lace side as well as the raglan increases on the purl side?  Cheers!  ps when are the special olympics?  I seem to need special considerations with this pattern!

LOL morgaroo! Thanks for the praise! To answer your questions:

You only increase on the purl (wrong side) side, and that's knitting into the front and the back of the stitch. so you would purl until you got to one stitch before the marker, knit the stitch into the front and the back, slip the marker, then knit into the front and the back of the next stitch... repeat that on the wrong side, and follow the lace pattern on the Right side until you have enough stitches for the circumference of your boobs minus 2 inches if you are using cotton, - I am a 42" bust so I increased until I had 40" of stitches on my needles, then stopped increasing.

Hope that helps!

Also my lace did not line up terribly well, but I don't care... Roll Eyes I'm not super finicky that way...
