The Lastarria Sweater is an interesting lace sweater pattern, worked in the round from bottom up. The classic round yoke shape with french sleeves gives it a very delicate look, making this a great versatile piece to any wardrobe.
Lastarria is a touristic neighbourhood in Santiago de Chile, well-known for its bohemian and cultural atmosphere. A small beautiful oasis with lots of restaurants, museums, parks and fashion stores in the middle of the chilean capital.
The pattern was designed and developed to be worn with 0 to 5 cm (0 to 2 in) of positive ease and fitted sleeves.
