StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped." - James

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
Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, 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. It will get softer with each washing. Hand or machine wash, lay flat to dry or tumble dry.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
Gauge 17.6 sts and 23 rows = 4”/10cm in stockinette, washed and blocked. It is important to wash and block your swatch.
