This pattern is also available as part of My Basic Collection - Book 1: an Eco-friendly e-book with 5 patterns (Mimo, Poveira, Afago, Equinócio and Eira).

Afago is a fancy collared cowl knitted bottom-up combining ribbing and lace. Shortened rows were added both for the collar and the bottom band adding a soft and graceful curvature for extra comfort.

More information:

Pattern Style: Full written out instructions with charts for the lace section as well.
