FAROLA means “Lantern” in Spanish. The pattern on the round yoke reminds me of the little lanterns and so the pattern got its name.

It is a seamless top-down sweater with an interesting lace pattern on the round yoke while the rest is made in reverse stockinette (knitted on the wrong side).

The range of ease across all the sizes is
4.5 - 6.5 cm/1.75 – 2.5”.

The picture shows size 3 with 6 cm/2.25” of positive ease.
