From pattern intro:
Alata is perfect as an extra layer of warmth in the dead of winter (or as an outer layer in early spring or fall), falling past the hip for a flattering, easy-to-wear fit. Even in frigid weather, I tend to overheat if covered from chin to wrists in wool, so I designed Alata with short sleeves and a slightly open neck to keep the torso warm, yet still allow some ventilation (you can always add a scarf if the wind is biting!). Bonus: those short sleeves and eased neckline slide smoothly over a turtleneck or blouse.
A bold winged lace cable accents center front, back and sleeves (Alata is Italian for “winged” ). Alata is worked entirely in the round from the bottom up, with self-finished hem, neck and sleeve edgings. Front and back are identical.
