Introducing At the Seaside – a delicate, shapely shell worked in fingering weight wool, perfect for warm weather making and wearing. This is a top down knit with no seaming. Its overall texture – Mock English Rib, a simple knit/purl repeat – is bordered by 1x1 ribbing at its sides and edges. Its neckline trim is worked wider than expected and in a complimentary color for added pizzazz. This is a quick knit and a fun project – just in time for summer. Enjoy!
