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!”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. 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. In celebration of this beautiful design, and the super-fun collaboration with Laura, we’re doing a giveaway over on Laura’s blog of a Sweater Quantity (2 or 3 skeins, size dependent) of Nona in Rose Kissed (the color shown in the photos) to one of Laura’s lucky blog readers!
To be entered to win the giveaway, head over to Laura’s blog and leave a comment letting her know who is La Jefa in your life! Don’t forget to leave a way for Laura to get in touch with you… she’ll keep comments open through April 24th and announce a winner in her next blog post!
