Linho is a simple summer pullover worked in linen yarn, with a delicate lace front.
It’s worked from the top down, seamlessly in the round, and it has short row shaping at the neck for a better and more flattering fit.
My talented friend Jonna, one of the makers of Laine Magazine, took these photos in the beautiful Portuguese Coast, while spending time together at a knitting retreat. It was such a magical moment, that we decided to name this pattern Linho, the Portuguese word for Linen.
