In the middle of Geodh’a’ Chuibhrig, there is a massive black rock, wave smoothed and about twenty feet high, where it is possible to live and watch the tide coming in over the surrounding shingle. The shifting water is hypnotically fascinating, and the feeling of motion and depth inspired this rugged, outdoor sweater with a deeply textured pattern.

Difficulty rating: Intermediate

Knit in four pieces---front, back, and sleeves---with collar added after sweater assembled.
