A kimono sleeve creates a smooth shoulder line in this brief summer sweater, whose lace pattern reminds Kathleen Power Johnson of rippling water. The fronts and back are worked separately from the lower edges to the armhole, then stitches are cast on and worked for the sleeves. Ribbed front ties allow for an adjustable fit; work longer ties for a wraparound version of the sweater.
