REYNAsweater

REYNA is a light sweater with an elegent yet simple to work lace neckline. This wardrobe staple is inspired by passionate Flamenco dancers and warm summer evenings.

REYNA is worked seamlessly from the top down. The pattern includes instructions for both a straight body and one with subtle waist shaping.

REYNA is made from a soft and GOTS certified merino and cotton blend yarn that has the advantages of both fibers: On the one hand it is lovely to work with and blocks out nicely like a woollen yarn and on the other hand is very soft to the skin and has the lovely drape of cotton yarns.
