Don't be fooled by the specified small needle size - this one-piece garment in soft alpaca is simple and quick to knit! The lacy look is made by working a simple dropped-stitch pattern. After the appropriate stitches have been dropped, the stitch gauge is close to that of a worsted-weight yarn. The piece is worked horizontally from the right cuff across to the left. A bit of single crochet seams the sides and finishes off the neck and sleeve edges.
