Blossom (jumper) is a sweater with a beautiful lace pattern on the front and back, and stockinette stitch on the sleeves.
The construction is bottom-up: you start by knitting the bottom of the body in the round, then the front and back are knitted back and forth one after the other. The shoulders are joined together and the stitches of the neckline are picked-up for a ribbed finish.
The stitches of the sleeves are then picked-up to knit them from the armhole to the wrist.
Several other patterns from the Blossom collection are available in my online shop or on Ravelry: a V-neck cardigan and a shawl.
