The Sandhuller Sweater Pattern is one of three gorgeous patterns designed for and in collaboration with KOKON by the brilliant Elsebeth Judith. This is the third of these gorgeous summery sweaters / tops using the merino-linen from KOKON. The other two being the Sandtoppe and the Sandfurer. All three designs by Elsebeth are can be knitted in either long or short sleeve versions. The fabulous yarn these gorgeous samples have been designed for and knit in, the KOKON Merino and Linen, compliments and makes these three designs the perfect summer knits.
Elsebeth descibes the her design in the following way. "Sandhuller is a summer pullover worked top down and in the round. It has a wide rib at neck and either randomly placed eyelets or regular rounds of eyelets at the yoke and body. The simplicity of the all-over texture of the body will encourage you to play with eyelets. Work as many or few as you please. The hem and sleeves are worked in rib. It’s meant to be worn with a positive ease. It’s pretty and feminine to wear and it is fun to knit!"
