Pattern description from Weekend Knitting: “This ultra-feminine lace camisole, knitted in a fluffy mohair-silk yarn, works as an undergarment or an outer garment. The cowl, an optional addition, can also be worn as a scarf with a coat. Alissa Baptista got the cowl idea from the Russian women she met while working in a yarn shop in New York City. They wore cowls under their coats on cold days.”
