I love this design and I am excited to be able to share it with you! While originally published in Tangled this past Winter, I think it makes a fabulous spring/summer project. Classic Elite Princess and Lacy Alpaca combine beautifully together, resulting in a feminine piece that compliments any figure. I hope you enjoy it!
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.
