This beautiful Dulcinea crochet lace pullover sweater pattern by Kristina Smiley is so elegant – so romantic – so drapey!

Since it’s made in lace weight yarn, it just hugs your body and flows so beautifully. Nothing bulky or chunky here!

I love the inspiration for this pattern:

“Dulcinea is a fictional character in the novel, Don Quixote, written by Miguel de Cervantes. She is the unseen ‘lady love’ and is described by him in the following excerpt: “…her name is Dulcinea, her country is El Toboso, a village of La Mancha, her rank must be at least that of a princess, since she is my queen and lady, and her beauty superhuman, since all the impossible and fanciful attributes of beauty which the poets apply to their ladies are verified in her; for her hairs are gold, her forehead Elysian Fields, her eyebrows rainbows, her eyes suns, her cheeks roses, her lips coral, her teeth pearls, her neck alabaster, her bosom marble, her hands ivory, her fairness snow, and what modesty conceals from sight such, I think and imagine, as rational reflection can only extol, not compare.” [Volume 1/Chapter XIII] “
