Pattern On those balmy summer nights when there’s a chill in the air, a light carefree sweater always feels just right. And this simple, yet stylish design looks great whether hanging out on the beach in a pair of shorts or having dinner al fresco. Knitted to create a loose drape, this pattern knits up fast and easy. The rows of purl stitches are spaced to evoke waves on the beach and the garter stitch trim provides a tidy finishing touch. Knitted top down with no seams, your knitting will be as carefree as the look of this finished sweater.
Yarn Lana Knit’s allhemp6 – DK – 100% hemp, eco-yarn
Long line flax is wet spun for vibrant color, outstanding drape, longevity and colorfast with ultimate softness and sheen. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And hemp is stronger and softer than cotton, will last twice as long and will not mildew. It’s a sustainable crop and an acre of hemp will produce as much fiber as 2 to 3 acres of cotton. While pesticides and herbicides are used in the production of other fibers, hemp requires none. Hand or machine wash, lay flat to dry or tumble dry.
Trendsetter’s Scarlett, DK, 100% Egyptian Cotton
This highest-quality cotton yarn is designed to be extra smooth as well as soft. A high twist, multi-ply washable yarn with loft and stretch, so it’s not only easy to care for, but easy to knit with as well.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
