FIORE DI LINO
FIORE DI LINO (THE LINEN FLOWER) is worked seamlessly from top down, with raglan increases and a soft ‘A’ line shaping. Until V-neck shaping is done, the sweater is worked flat in rows, then in the round. The lace pattern is nice and easy to knit. Please decide, how many pattern stripes you have to work, to get your perfect sleeve length.
