Lace Yoke Sweater in Kid Mohair Silk "After the Rain" Knitting Pattern

€7,50


After the Rain is a classic yoke sweater pattern adapted for a curious knitter who likes to take up new challenges and is not afraid to tackle an interesting lace panel.
The sweater is knitted top-down. It starts with a slight boatneck and opens up in a beautiful full lace yoke with transparent leaves and textured buds, reminiscent of nature awakening after the rain. Due to the lacy pattern, the yoke forms a wavy transition to the lower body, adding to the natural flow of the design elements.

If you buy yarn for this pattern, the pattern will be sent to you, free of charge.
