Vologda lace sweater
This sweater took a little longer than a month to make. It was inspired by beautiful Vologda lace. Since I am not a lace maker, I used a crochet technique that imitates it: actually, not difficult at all!
Here are some websites where you can take a look at these techniques:

I designed the sweater myself using various crochet samples. The thread used is Normandy Linen in Natural.
