Valley Yarns Designer
Series’ Flottante is an adorable lacy tee using Valley Superwash Sport. The
pullover is knit in the round from the bottom up with an easy to memorize lace
pattern with Nalgar shaping for a layering top with almost no finishing work.
Nalgar construction (“raglan” spelled backward), thanks to the genius of Elizabeth
Zimmermann involves increasing stitches to form the sleeves as you create the
yoke. Valley Superwash Sport is made from soft extra-fine superwash Merino. You’ll
love the stitch definition and drape of this yarn. The lace pattern is
charted and written out.
