Menemsha is a beautiful place. Every year, our summer begins by celebrating my father’s birthday with a sunset picnic of lobster on the beach. While the weather starts out warm, as the sun sets, the temperature drops. Just before we climb into the car for our late June celebration, the final reminders are made, “Don’t forget to bring a sweater!”

So here it is, a sweater for every member of the family. The kind of sweater that becomes your favorite comfortable sweater; the sweater that reminds you of all the good times it’s kept you warm.

If you can knit a scarf, you can knit this sweater. It’s knitted in flat and seamed together using only one pair of straight needles.
