The Summer Staple Sweater is that easy-breezy topper you can throw on over shorts, jeans, or your cutest swimsuit - all summer long! Come winter, you can layer it with something long-sleeved to remember those warm summer vibes.

The Summer Staple Sweater is made side to side, and the sleeves are added right onto the body, so it’s easy enough for beginners. This method and stitch pattern give the sweater a great drape, and it takes advantage of gravity. The measurements for the schematic are laid flat - it will lengthen when worn!

The kangaroo pocket on the front is made in a light but solid fabric to keep it practical. But the body is in an easy 2 row mesh that’s trendy and breathable. And it’s all finished off with fringe - optional, of course, but I love that swing!

Right and left-handed video tutorials included.
