Named after the sandy ridges formed by the movement of the ocean’s current, Shoal features a simple broken-rib pattern that creates an interesting vertical texture. This sweater is easy to knit, with a modern, oversized boxy shape that is comfortable and cosy to wear.

Worked from the bottom up, Shoal was designed to be worn with 4-6” (10-15cm) positive ease around the bust. Please be aware that the sweater body will grow in width after blocking, so swatching is crucial for a perfect fit.
