Aura is the Greek goddess of the breeze and the fresh, cool air of early morning. I found her name perfect for this feminine sweater with an all-over simple but stylish lace pattern. The yarn used for the sample project is a beautiful soft and smooth cotton yarn, and I fell in love with this colour at first sight.
The sweater is knit flat from the bottom up. The sleeves are set-in, they add even more to the feminine character. The neck edging is knit separately and then sewn in place in order to get a nice wavy edge.
