Pattern Description:

Dark, dreary days and nights call for something cozy - and a bit of sparkle. While jewels are great for livening up a chilly day, they don't do much for keeping you warm. Esmeralda will. The lace on the sleeves, hem, and cowl is designed to create jewel-shaped panels ("esmeralda" is Spanish for "emerald") which add interest without letting in too much of that bitter wind.
