A relaxed pullover featuring large blocks of handdyed yarn to resemble watercolor painting, Backshore features short row shaping at the shoulders for a perfect fit and positive ease for that laid back style.

The sweater is intended to be worn with 3’’-4”/7.5-10 cm of positive ease at full bust.
Sweater is worked flat to start then joined in the round at the front, when the front neck shaping is completed.
