~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sands Point is a casual, summer henley. Garter stitch detail at the sides, raglan lines and bottom hem, and dropped stitches at the sleeve cuffs marry with the linen and silk yarn to create a cool cover-up for those balmy days.

Construction Notes:
The pullover is constructed from the bottom up. Back and front bottom bands are worked separately in rows to form side slits. They are then joined, and the pullover continues in one piece to the underarms. From there, the work is divided and front and back are worked separately in rows. Sleeves are knit in the round to the underarm and raglan is then worked back and forth in rows. Body and sleeves are seamed along raglan lines.

Sizing:
To be worn with 9 - 12” / 23 – 30cm positive ease.
