Stella Alpina is a protected wild flower growing in highlands. It has white pointy petals. The lace stitch pattern is inspired by this rare beauty. This sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. It has a unique placement of short rows that shapes the neck without disrupting the neckline. Both written and charted directions are given for the lace patterns.

Stella Alpina is graded with inclusive sizing in mind, designed to fit actual bust sizes from 76 cm / 30 inches to 168 cm / 66 inches. Measurements are given in both cm and inches.
