Dawn Brocco's Gabriella was meant to turn heads with her
snug, cropped shape and sweet little lace pattern! Lace can easily
turn a thicker yarn into a spring or summer garment. This sweater knits up
quickly, thanks to the yarn weight, as well as the cropped length and fitted
The wool blend sample in grey is knit in Cascade Yarns Eco Cloud, a
light and luscious merino and kid mohair cabled yarn. The cotton blend
sample in pink is knit in Cascade Yarns Cotton Rich.

Notes: 1) As always, read through all instructions, before beginning.
2) The cotton sweater uses one size smaller ndls, to achieve gauge, due to

make a larger size. The dress form used to model the P, S and M size samples
has a 35.5" chest and 15" shoulder to waist measurement.
