Aystra is a poncho-like sweater with a generous collar and short dropped sleeves. It is made with motifs worked in the Tunisian crochet technique.

Each motif is worked separately in short rows, using a regular crochet hook, and joined to other motifs as you go. The joining method creates a delicate netting pattern to show off the circular motifs to full effect.

The pattern assumes basic familiarity with Tunisian crochet, specifically how each row is worked as two separate passes and how to work Tunisian simple stitch.
