This pattern can be found in issue 5 of Laine Magazine.

Svelge combines two yarns: a very rustic lambswool and a soft silk mohair. The unusual pair makes the sweater interesting. An easy-going knit for work or freetime, a true keeper.

The boxy sweater with dropped shoulders is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up. The body is knitted in the round to the armholes and then flat. The lace pattern is knitted at the same time as the neck of the sweater. Finally, the sleeves are picked up and knitted in the round.
