This pattern can be found in issue 8 of Laine Magazine.

The Cimes sweater is a light, delicate and flowy garment, yet it feels covering and comforting. The lace pattern is worked all over, resulting in a very intricate and textured fabric – just like the forest’s canopy. The lace pattern is really easy to memorize, with just one row of manipulation for a four-row repeat. It is a drop shoulder sweater knitted from the bottom up, and knitted in the round. It hits slightly above the hips, has a lot of drape, and still quite a lot of positive ease, to let the wearer go with the flow, and feel all the feels.
