Reposado showcases the distinct cotton/wool texture and the subtle shades of color in a blended linen or cotton yarn, which are sophisticated and gorgeous in stockinette, but even more beautiful in simple lace.

The design features lace on either side of the sweater, resulting in a gorgeous scalloped hem and a lovely edge around the armholes. The short, slightly flared shape is flattering and versatile, and the design calls for minimal finishing.

Reposado is worked in the round to armholes, then worked flat to shoulders. Lace is both written and charted, and notes are in the pattern about making modifications to length or width if desired.

You can double a thinner weight sport or fingering yarn OR use a DK or worsted weight yarn to get gauge. Play with needle size and swatch - or take a look at what others have done on their Reposados!
