This design is included in One Ocean, a beautiful collection of knitting patterns from Pacifico Knits.

Pacifico Knits is a delightful collaboration between Marie Greene (Olive Knits) and Libby Jonson (Truly Myrtle).

Our first collection One Ocean was inspired by the Pacific Ocean which lies between us.

I spend a lot of time flying, whether it’s across the Pacific or closer to home, and I’m always in need of something I can pack and wear on the go. With easy, mindless texture (that you can work with or without a cable needle, depending on your preference), you’ll find Travelest to be a great project for social knitting; there are no increases or decreases to follow, and the texture is easily memorized after a few repeats. It knits up at a steady pace in two flat pieces (both pieces are the same, which means the front and back are alike), which are seamed at the shoulders and sides. (I’ve included a handy video tutorial link in the pattern that I think you’ll love.)

Slide Travelest on over whatever you happen to be wearing to add a dash of effortless style to your outfit.

S (M, L, XL, XXL)

Meant to be worn with 10-15 in/25-38 cm of positive ease. It is not recommended to be worn with less than 9-10 in/23-25 cm ease. (Choose the size with a finished measurement that is approximately 10-15 inches/25-38 cm larger than your actual full bust measurement in order to get a similar fit as shown in the photos.)
