Loose-fitting top with rounded neckline and cute elastic, eye-catching details. It’s easy to switch the lantern sleeves from three-quarter sleeves to long sleeves. Opt for three-quarter sleeves if you have wider hips. Go for long sleeves if you have slender hips. Read below to find out how you alter the sleeve length.

Recommended fabrics

We made the Nala sweater in an interlock fabric. Interlock (e.g. Punta di Roma) is a double-knit tricot that looks the same on both the front and the back. The fabric is heavier and stiffer than single jersey, which is only one layer, and is slightly elastic.

You can also use sweater, French terry, neoprene, or scuba fabrics to make the Nala Sweater.
