The Merle is a weightless pullover with vintage styling and a simple lace yoke. It is knit in the round up to the sleeve join, with deep hems and cuffs of garter stitch. Inset panels of delicate eyelet columns on the back and fronts create a sweetly curved yoke, and the round neck is split with a pretty placket and finished with a pointed flat collar in garter stitch. Finished chest circumference: 32.25 (36, 39.75, 43.25, 47, 50.5) inches (with an intended ease of 2-3 inches). You will need 5 (5, 6, 6, 7, 7) skeins of Brooklyn Tweed's Loft. You will also need US #4 double point and 32-inch circular needles (OR size needed to obtain gauge) and 32-inch needles two sizes smaller than gauge needle. Gauge is 22 stitches per 4 inches.
