In Kristeen’s words: “Martine has a distinct sailor influence, with a generous hood (for the hoodie generation) replacing the squared off middy collar. Though never a fan of stockinette stitch, I knew that this particular design called out for an almost blank palette to throw the spotlight on the colorwork. Subtle ribbing that hugs the lower torso definitely improves on roomy maritime gear…” --from French Girl Knits (the book).
