The use of the Sand Stitch pattern, bobbles/nupps at the sleeves and beautiful hand-dyed Linen Merino yarn from Kokon Yarn give the sweater a remembrance of happy days at the beach playing with tops of sand.

Collaboration with Kokon Yarn

A sweater worked top down and in the round. Sandtoppe has bands with an easy lace pattern (and bobbles) from shoulders and down the sleeves.
The simplicity of the lace bands suits the all-over texture of the body. It’s meant to slightly flare at the waist. It’s pretty and feminine to wear and fun to knit!

Note! Lace pattern at the sleeve includes bobbles, but if you find the bobbles too big, they can be exchanged with smaller nupps instead.

The sweater has a positive ease of approx 10-15cm/4-6” at circumference of bust measurement
The finished measurement of Sandtoppe around bust is XS: 88.5cm/34.75” (S: 95,5cm/37.5”, M: 104cm/41”, L: 109.5cm/43”, XL: 118cm/46.5”, 2XL: 123.5cm/48.5”).

Sample is worked in size L and shown at a model with an ease of 26cm/10.25”
