The use of Sand Stitch pattern, the rib pattern and the beautiful hand-dyed linen-merino yarn from KOKON yarn give the sweater a remembrance of sunny days at the beach with furrows un the sand.

Sandfurer is a lightweight summer sweater with ease, worked top down with a small all-over stitch pattern. The dropped shoulders are worked flat with short-row shaping and the front and back are worked separately before being joined at the armhole. The rib pattern in front is worked from chart and creates “furrows” in the “Sand Stitch Pattern” and gives a slight waistline. The sleeves are worked in the round with the possibility to choose short, three-quarter or long sleeves.
