      A note from the designer, Ailbíona McLochlainn:

      We say that knitting is a labour of love. And at no time do I feel this more keenly than when working lace into garments. The care, the trust, the commitment, the passion - they all must be present, and sustained, for the needles to work their magic and yield a wearable piece of our heart. An ode to this process, Scéal Grá (pronounced scale grah) is Irish for 'love story'.

      Worked seamlessly from the top down, this lightweight, easy-to-wear top is constructed with fitted 3/4 sleeves, a relaxed bodice, and a flounced hemline. The circular yoke features a delicate lace motif of drooping blossoms, elements of which are also echoed in the sleeves. All edgings are finished with i-cord, for an airy, elegant aesthetic.

      Scéal Grá is suitable for adventurous advanced beginners, with some experience in lace knitting.
