The Diana Sweater brings a modern silhouette to a classic allover lace style. Designed to hang open at the front, with a gentle sweeping drape, this piece can be worn as an elegant alternative to a shrug for special evenings out or just paired with jeans and a white tee. The allover lace pattern combined with unusual shaping keeps things challenging for more experienced knitters. This garment is designed to fit rather snugly through the sleeves, so if you prefer a looser fit, we recommend making one size larger.
