La Jefa Sweater by Laura Nelkin of Nelkin Designs

Making its debut this week, and at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, is Laura Nelkin’s lovely new design named La Jefa.

As Laura says, “La Jefa is the boss… she is a seamless loose lace sweater constructed in a simple but unusual way. La Jefa is worked flat in two halves and then joined together with back and side panels. The pattern includes detailed construction illustrations… and a lot of support!”

La Jefa , by Laura Nelkin, knit in Spirit Trail Nona in the Rose Kissed colorway.

What a pretty sweater, and perfect for warm weather. Knit in Spirit Trail Nona, which is a heavy lace weight blend of superwash merino, cashmere and silk, it’s lightweight with beautiful drape. And the lacey pattern of this design will ensure that the fabric stays light and airy, perfect for a little Spring / Summer wardrobe addition.

Such pretty details in this design!

La Jefa looks great over a tank top, as shown on Laura’s model, but it would be awesome over a camisole, teeshirt or even a long sleeve shirt in cooler weather, too.

Such a feminine, flirty design
