Some time ago I got some Hipknits silk yarn from a SP, but such beautifull yarn deserves some thinking about the project! Finally a bit over a month ago I had an idea: an easy sweater with a lace pattern!
Only I was afraid to design my own sweater with the silk yarn as you shouldn't frog it too much.
Therefore I did a test sweater in cotton:

 

Now, that it did work out. It was time for the real deal:

And a close up of the lace(the colors are more like in this pic)


The pattern can be found on my blog here or better here it is:

Cotton version
 
Size: XS-S with finished chest circumference of approx. 80cm
This pattern can be easily adapted for larger sizes!
Just cast on more stitches and work the yoke untill if fits you.
You might have to work in bust darts.

Gauge: 16sts X 28rows=10cm X 10cm

Materials:
3 hanks of Line 14 "Clip" from Online(166m/100g),
circular needles size 4mm in 60cm, 80cm length and DPNS for sleeves,
tapestry needle,
stitch marker

Lace pattern(for chart see below):
multiple of 8sts
1.Row: YO, K2, sl1, K2tog, psso, K2, YO, K1
2. Row and all even: K
3.Row: K1, YO, K1, sl1, K2tog, psso, K1, YO, K2
5.Row: K2, YO, sl1, K2tog, psso, YO, K3

Directions:
Yoke:
CO 112 sts = 70 cm neck circumference
Work 3 rows in 2x2-ribbing
Place markers after 17sts/39sts/17sts/39sts
Continue in stockinette(knit) while increasing every second row like this:
Kf&b before and after every marker
Continue untill its long enough(you can try it on by placing the stitches on waste yarn) and place sleeve stitches on waste yarn.

Body:
Join body stitches on circular needles and knit in stockinette untill just under bust.
Next row(eyelet row): *YO, K2tog*
Next row: K
Begin knitting in lace pattern, you might have to increase/decrease before starting(remember the pattern is a 8 stitch repeat, so you need a multiple of 8 stitches on the needle!).
Knit in pattern till desired length, then knit next three rows in garter beginning with a knit row.
BO all stitches.

left sleeve:
Transfer sleeve stitches from waste yarn unto needles.
Start knitting sleeves in stockinette untill desired length is reached.
Knit three rows in 2x2-ribbing
BO all stitches

right sleeve:
repeat as for left sleeve.

Silk version:
 
Size: XS-S with finished chest circumference of approx. 80cm
This pattern can be easily adapted for larger sizes!

Very cute! It looks nicely done, too! Makes me wish I could follow knitting patterns... Grin It amazes me that you can make your own. Love it! How long did it take you to design and make?

That's lovely!
Is it wrong that I prefer the cotton one? Hipknits silk and me don't get along too well.

Get out of my head!!! j/k  I was totally picturing a summer sweater like that the other day!  It is gorgeous and thank you for the pattern--this is definitely on my summer knitting list but I'll have to attempt to size it up.
