The Piedras Collection was inspired by the river-rocked Malabrigo colorway Piedras. Because rocks rock.

The Beach Agate Sweater is a top-down raglan, with a-line shaping. It’s meant to be worn loose and open (the fronts don’t overlap but come together in the front, allowing for a loose drape when worn or layered). I have a size 40” bust, and am wearing the 4th size. In order to have a sweater that fits like the modeled shots, we recommend choosing a size that will give you 2-4” of positive ease.

This is a fill-in-the-blanks pattern. Before you begin knitting, consult the table included, and fill in the blanks appropriate to the size you are making, corresponding with the letter referenced next to the blank space. This will, I hope, make the pattern easier on your eyes, and leave less room for error by accidentally following the numbers for the wrong size.
