La Mascarada Sweater
Inspired by the mystery and drama of a 16th century Masquerade Ball, La Mascarada combines mosaic and lace techniques to create a beautiful and elegant yoke panel. The sweater is worked seamlessly and in the round from the top down. Short rows are added to shape the neckline and from then the mosaic pattern is introduced followed by the lace design. The sleeves and body are separated and worked top to bottom. The cuff is worked in the same mosaic pattern as the yoke.
The Mosaic and Lace designs are straightforward, with written and charted instructions provided for the Lace design. You only knit with one colour at a time. There is a link to a YouTube video tutorial for Rnds 3, 4 and 6 of the Mosaic design.
The body and sleeves can be any length and the instructions show where the length can be added.
Sizes - Women’s XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL)(3XL, 4XL, 5XL, 6XL, 7XL, 8XL).
This sweater is intended to be worn with 1cm/1/3” positive ease.
