New pattern: Milana

Milana is one of my favorite from my line of patterns. It is light and comfortable with a simple lace stitch pattern combined with a small flat cable. I love to knit seamlessly, so this design is as seamless as they come. No seams at all. The yarn is Venezia Worsted by Cascade and it is such a nice yarn to work with. It is soft but holds the shape wonderfully.

Available in 9 sizes.
Worked in the round from the bottom up and separated for back and front at armholes. Shoulders are joined by 3-needle BO method.
