Rachel Linen Beach Sweater Pattern

Sale price$ 8.00 USD
9991 in stock

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 simpleto knit, so you'll be lounging in it in no time!

To be most clear, if you are choosing other yarn than what is suggested, the pattern has As Knit measurements and then assumes that you wash and dry the 100% linen, so has As Washed & Dried measurements. The pattern shrinks up about 10 - 13%  and in less than that. Keep this in mind as you select sizes depending on what yarn you choose. If you choose 100% linen this should be consistent.
