Ragnatela

By Leslie Hamacher for Lavatera Rose

Offering a glamorous vintage vibe, this stunning twinset features beautiful lace detailing and a flattering fit.  The duster is knit at a looser gauge, using larger 4.5mm (US7) needles, creating a fabric with lovely drape and giving its lace pattern the added intrigue of large scale, for a flawless finish to the light weight wool. The short sleeve pullover has allover patterning and ends at the top-hip, while the coordinating duster echoes the lace pattern at its hems and offers A-line shaping over both its body and sleeves.  To eliminate a lot of seaming, the pullover is knit in the round over the body and sleeves, and the duster is knit in one piece to the armholes on a circular needle.  Available in six sizes, the pattern includes written explanations of techniques used, as well as charts for the lace patterns.
