Effortlessly elegant with its relaxed fit, wide voluptuous collar and slightly puffed sleeves, Ludivine is adorned with sophisticated cable and lace motifs. The use of a fingering and a lace mohair yarns held together produce a luxurious fabric and a delicate marling. A truly fulfilling knitting experience and a joy to wear!

CONSTRUCTION
The Ludivine sweater is knit seamlessly in the round from the top down. The front neck is shaped with short rows, body and sleeves widen in a deep raglan. Then stitches are cast on for the underarms and the body is worked in the round while sleeve stitches are placed on hold. The sleeves are worked after completion of the body with decreases for a puffed effect, ending with a folded ribbed brim. Stitches are picked up around the neckline to work the wide folded turtleneck collar.
