The Lovely Elsebeth Judith has done it again......she has created another timeless beautiful knit using the fab KOKON Merino Linen 4ply/light fingering weight yarn.
Sandstrandis a lightweight sweater with ease, worked top down with a small all-over stitch pattern.
The drop shoulders are worked flat with short-row shaping and the front and back are worked separately before being joined at the armhole. The body is worked in the round to desired length. Afterwards stitches are picked up along the armholes and the long sleeves are worked in the round.
