What was your inspiration?
With a subtle herringbone lace panel traveling up the front body and delicate waist shaping, this pullover exudes a lovely ethereal feel. To enhance the softness, the cuffs and neckline are highlighted with a beautiful alpaca lace fiber. This sweater will delight your knitting hands, as well as your eye for fashion.
What are you most proud of?
I love how the delicate collar overlaps to soften the square neckline
