The use of the Sand Stitch pattern, bobbles/nupps at the sleeves and beautiful hand-dyed Linen Merino yarn from Kokon Yarn give the sweater a remembrance of happy days at the beach playing with tops of sand.
This Sandtoppe Sweater is a collaboration between Elsebeth Judith and KOKON Yarn
Sandtoppe is a sweater worked top down and in the round. Sandtoppe has bands with an easy lace pattern (and bobbles) from shoulders and down the sleeves. The simplicity of the lace bands suits the all-over texture of the body. It’s meant to slightly flare at the waist. It’s pretty and feminine to wear and fun to knit!
Note! Lace pattern at the sleeve includes bobbles, but if you find the bobbles too big, they can be exchanged with smaller nupps instead.
