Rippling Sands was inspired by the lines left behind in the sand at low-tide. The stunning twisted stitch pattern creates an overall wavy stitch pattern. This is achieved by using Bavarian twisted stitches. The design is a simple boxy, drop shoulder sweater worked in the round from the bottom up. The top portion is worked separately flat with the shoulders seamed together with a three-needle bind off. Afterward the 3/4 sleeves are picked up and worked outward from the body in stockinette stitch. Knit up in Kelbourne Woolens Scout yarn Ripping Sands is an impressive piece to add to your hand knit wardrobe!
