Tyrol cables with their flower bud shapes offset by tucks at each end of the scarf. The layered tucks create a sculptural feel and add drama to the bottom of the loose sleeves. The set is named after the sculptor LaChaise by Clotheshorse where the pattern first was published. Both are knitted in the round to form a tube of textured volume in a scrumptious alpaca and mulberry silk mixture from Blue Sky Alpaca with a divine halo.

LaChaise is available in English and in Norwegian (på norsk).
