The Valley Yarns Designer Series Flottante Kit includes the PDF pattern download and the Valley Superwash Sport yarn in Light Gray needed to knit this pullover.

Flottante is an easy-fit pullover featuring an all-over lace pattern and elbow length sleeves. With its modern take on the Nalgar (raglan aspelled backwards) construction method developed by Elizabeth Zimmerman, the sleeves of this sweater grow with increases worked with the yoke instead of the decreases used in a raglan construction. The miniature leaf lace makes this garment light and airy—an ideal piece for pairing with a dress or tank in the warmer weather or for layering over t-shirts when it has turned cool. Knit nearly seamlessly in the round from the bottom up, Flottante has shoulders joined with a three-needle bind-off and a teeny seam at the hem (hem is knit flat before joining your work in the round to knit the body of the sweater). Superwash Merino Valley Yarns Superwash Sport ensures that your lace will be crisp and your top will be soft and easy to care for. Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
