The chained ribbon structure of our Kestrel linen creates striking textured lace, the focal point of Deschain by Leila Raabe. Designed with plenty of ease for a relaxed fit, this cropped boxy pullover is worked flat and then seamed, with slim sleeves picked up and worked in the round down to the cuff. Dropped stitches update the classic shale lace motif gracing the body’s front and hem.
