Beach Weekend

Beach Weekend is a light weight pullover with elbow length raglan sleeves, a deep boat neckline, and all trimmed in 1x1 ribbing. Its fitted stockinette bodice showcases slim lace sleeves that are worked in the easily mastered tilting blocks pattern. This piece is worked from the top down with minimal shaping – perfect for knitting on the beach, where most of its knitting actually did occur, and for year round wear.
