Silvered, clear glass beads, velvet ribbon, and a bit of lace add romantic sophistication to Robin Melanson's V-neck pullover - something Juliet might have worn for a clandestine meeting with Romeo. The beads are prestrung on the yarn, then slipped into place as needed. Eyelets are knitted into the body, sleeves, and neckband for holding the velvet ribbon, which is secured with snaps and can be removed when the sweater is washed. A shaped waist and gentle bell sleeves contribute to the allure.
