Astrakhan Sweater

Astrakhan Sweater

KNITTED LACE has never looked so monumental! This dramatic top from the design team at Schachenmayr Select uses a lace and bobble pattern worked in a super-chunky yarn on colossal 25mm needles. The sweater is knitted in three main pieces; the right and left fronts are partly seamed together, and a collar is sewn onto the finished garment. The mohair content of the Alegretto yarn adds a pleasing fluffiness to those huge stitches - neon shades are also available, if you feel this design is not bold enough!
