fisherman's pullover


I'm drawn to the sea - sun, salt and water. I'm longing to feel the brisk summer breeze on my face. Even though we live almost by the sea, I still want more. I've been reading The Summer Book by Tove Jansson, once again, and the urge to live on an tiny island is really getting me.


No, we're not moving. I'm directing all that inspiration to my knitting. I have a long list of knits to do, but it started with my Sea Sick Cardigan and here is the second: the Fisherman's Cardigan.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Sandnes Garn Fritidsgarn
Needles: 5 mm


It's a simple top-down raglan with short rows on the neck. I really love the effect of the garter-panel in front. And the color of the yarn is gorgeous.

Hirmu vauhdilla ihania neuleita. Tykkään myös sun tavastasi kuvata neuleet; yksinkertaista, puhdasta, kaunista.

The photos are adorable! And so is the sweater!
I live on an island in Alaska and I like it so far :)

Like you, I love the sea, and this sweet little garter stitch sweater.

But unfortunately, unlike you, I don't live anywhere near the sea. But my parents have a beachfront house by the ocean, and I'm visiting them next week YAY!

The sweater is really really lovely, I love grey and I love simple shape so it seems that you has summarized the best! I read the summer book a couple of years ago and I'm still dreaming of a cabin in a tiny island on the sweden or finnish archipelago.
My italian copy of this book has a beautiful C. Larsson's drawn on the cover, who wants more?
