Lane’s Island is a small island preserve attached by bridge to Vinalhaven Island, where I summer. I was so excited when Amy (SavoryKnitting) from Berroco asked me to design a sweater for them and then, she named my design for one of my treasured hiking locales!

This timeless, oversized knitted sweater is worked with two colors of Berroco Ultra Wool DK. A boxy shape and ribbed pockets create a casual, contemporary feel.
