Mitzi used Flan in her "Kiboushi" - a stylish pullover by Ririko with a lace pattern on the shoulder, sleeves, and lower body. The high-low slit hem makes this flattering piece both current and classic.

It is worked from the top down seamlessly; the yoke is first worked in the round with saddle shoulder construction, then back and forth separately to the underarm, where they are joined again. The lower body is knitted in one piece in the round with a lace pattern, then split into two and knitted to two different lengths. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm openings and worked down to 3/4 length in the round with lace pattern.

The pattern calls for US size 4 (3.5mm) circular needles, 16-40" for the body, plus US size 4 DPNs or 8-9" circulars for the sleeves. This sweater is designed to be worn with 6-18" of positive ease, and you'll need 3 (4, 5, 5)(6, 6, 7, 8) skeins of Flan Fingering for finished bust size 38¼ (43½, 49, 54¼)(59¾, 65, 70½, 75¾)”.

You can find Kiboushi by Ririko on Ravelry.

The pattern calls for US size 6 (4.0mm) needles and one skein of Flan - the only hard part will be picking your favorite color!
