Falling Leaves sweater


A classic lace DK sweater with vintage-inspired details


Are you looking for a vintage-inspired, classic lace sweater pattern in DK?  If so, Falling Leaves has several pretty details to please you!  These include a square neckline, moss stitch yoke, and balloon sleeves.  The slight A-line shaping makes this sweater easy to style.  Falling Leaves works especially well with jeans, trousers, shorts or pants.  It is a longer alternative to the Bonnie sweater.

Although inspired by autumn colour and texture, Falling Leaves works beautifully as a summer lace sweater.  Choose a light-coloured yarn to complement the warmer season’s flowers and blue skies.

The sample was knitted in a wool blend, but you can turn Falling Leaves into Spring Leaves by opting for a crisp cotton.  Alternatively, choose a 100% wool yarn for extra snuggle during the colder months.

Falling Leaves is available in 12 sizes.  Please see the specification drawing and measurement table for further details.

Special Techniques
  • Lace increases and decreases (yarn over, ssk, k2tog, sl1-k2tog-psso)
  • Make 1 style increases
  • CDD (central double decrease) for the mitred corners of the neckband

The sample was knitted in Luma yarn by The Fibre Company, who have kindly produced kits for purchasers of Falling Leaves!  You can buy the kit and all available colours of Luma here.  The kit includes a project bag and all the yarn needed to make the lace sweater pattern.
