Bustling winds at sea may call for a suitable sweater - Atlantica Summer Sweater is worked in a linen, cotton and viscose yarn and has three-quarter length sleeves. The stripes get some texture from using a slip stitch pattern, an easy way to add interest to a striped sweater. The cuffs are extra neat with twisted ribbing and the sweater is knitted from the top down - that way you can easily try it on as you go and decide the right length for you.
