This pattern can be found in issue 7 of Laine Magazine.

Apricite is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up. The neckline has functional front opening. The fit is oversized with a slightly cropped length, loose sleeves and drop shoulders. The garment is knitted using two strands of yarn held together: a DK weight wool yarn with a lace weight mohair/ silk blend. A single strand of worsted weight wool yarn can be used in place of these yarns, although yardage might vary.
