  • seasonal recipes to inspire your summer cooking

For this issue, designer Audrey Borrego imagined the Lucienne sweater, a design that plays with the structural look of raglan sweaters: the geometric lace panels draw attention to the raglan lines, while also giving this beautiful summer jumper a lighter touch. Lucienne is a pretty, elegant garment worked from the top down, with a slight boat-neck shape and a cropped body and sleeves. As most of the construction set-up is done outside of the lace, you can easily adapt the pattern to any desired length.
