Feminine, cozy, beautiful — Orla by Sloane Rosenthal is an ethereal autumn pullover, featuring simple twisting cables and openwork for stunning results.
We’ve referred to this pullover as the “magic sweater” as the size 120 cm / 50.5” sample shown here is breathtaking on both of our radiant models, Laura and Jazzmin, whose full bust sizes are nearly 25 cm / 10” different. The only explanation we can come to is this sweater is literally made for everyone!
Orla is made from the bottom up; the back and front are blocked and seamed, then the sleeves are picked up at the armholes and worked from the top down. Finally, the neckband is picked up and worked in the round, folded over and seamed for a stable and cozy finish for year-round wear.
