Rachel Linen Beach Sweater Kit

$ 68.00

Fall in love with this gorgeous, summer-y linen sweater. Fingering weight linen knit up on larger needles allows for a loose, slightly open stitch with beautiful drape. This sweater is WASHABLE on gentle and tumble dry low which makes it the perfect wardrobe staple. We love the v-neck which allows you to show straps or shoulders as you choose, or not if you don't. The sweater is cropped, but not extremely, so it's the perfect length for your high-waisted jeans or pants. The sweater is knit in the round for the body, which is straight, making it easy to add length if you want it longer.  We love the hemmed edge which gives the sweater some weight at the bottom as well.  The pattern comes with a video on how to knit the hem, as well as how. to join the pieces to knit in the round. The sweater is simple to knit, so you'll be lounging in it in no time!
