“Foglie nel Blu” is a bundle of patterns: a sweater, a cowl and a beret. The sweater is worked top-down, in the round, with no seams. The delicate pattern all over the yoke is very easy and was inspired by the leaves of Isatis Tinctoria also called guado. This is a vegetal dye used to make a wonderful blu, expecially suited for alpaca fibers, as you can see in the pictures of the garments.
The cowl, decorated with the same lace motif, may be worn separately and matched with the beret.

Many thanks to Ameliawitch for testing!
