Sideways pullover in an eyelet pattern with a center join to enable it to hang straight like a sail or Vela - Italian for sail. Oversized body with narrow sleeves to minimize the volume. Vela ends in a round neck with ribbing. Dress it up with a cowl, that can be worn once or twice around your neck. Perfect for summer, knitted in a lovely cotton mix yarn called Hempathy from Elsebeth Lavold with a crisp stitch definition.
