I wanted a sweater that was cropped and could be worn over dresses, overalls or high waisted jeans. The design idea came to me when I first got my hands on a skein of Biscotte’s Speckled yarn in Seashell. I knew it had to be about the ocean in some way. Then, remembering being out on the water and seeing this magnificant whale’s tail come up out of the ocean I knew I needed to incorporate that beauty into my sweater. I designed the colorwork to ressemble a whale’s tail and added a wide hem on the bottom that also mimics the beauty of a whale’s tail. I will fondly hold the memory of my Seascape adventure and remember it everytime I wear my most treasured design! - Andrea Yetman
Main Fabric: 4mm (US#6)– Circulars needles of at least 32” (80cm) and preferred needles for small circumference knitting (or size needed to obtain gauge).
Ribbing: 3.5mm (US#4)– Circulars needles of at least 32” (80cm) and preferred needles for small circumference knitting.
24sts and 30 rows = 10 cm (4”) using larger needles on Stockinette stitch.
XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL)
Seascape is knit seamless from the top down with approximately 2-4 inches; 5-10 cm of positive ease. The sweater is cropped with 3/4 length sleeves. You can adjust the length of the body and sleeves but keep in mind to adjust the yardage of yarn. The colorwork in this design is very beginner friendly and easy to memorize. The collar and cuffs are worked in a twisted rib while the bottom hem is worked in a twisted rib cable pattern. For tips on knitting colorwork check out my blog post HERE

Brilliant as always - love Biscotte
Sorry - I haven't done anything - yet - with the pattern. I saw it, loved it, ordered it (I'm a knitter, after all!). I appreciate the ease of ordering and receiving the pattern but can't really provide any comments yet on the pattern itself.
