The Catalina Beach Sweater is a great transitional piece for your wardrobe.

Designed to be worn on those cooler, summer nights, the Catalina is knit with cotton yarn and designed with lace eyelets and chevron – to give it a chunky sweater feel, but without the weight.

It’s oversized, with enough ease for you to slip it on easily over your swimsuit – or your button down. You don’t have to retire it at the end of the season. It’s perfect for layering in the spring or fall, over a t-shirt or a button down, and it’s perfect for school or work.

The shoulders are dropped, giving it a casual vibe, and the sleeves stop at the elbows – perfectly cool for all seasons.

I knit this with Wool and the Gang bulky cotton yarn. If you’re looking to substitute, please check your gauge!
