The Shoreline Sweater is knitted with a combination of sheep’s wool and mohair. The body and arms are knitted in the round. The mohair together with the simple lace stitch on the front create beautiful, delicate wavy lines.
As only a few rows in lace stitch are knitted, this pattern is on the whole very simple and requires little concentration. With the 8 mm knitting needles, the Shoreline Sweater is also finished quite quickly.
The Shoreline Sweater is the perfect knitting pattern if you want to use up your wool scraps, as you only need small amounts of the sheep’s wool and the mohair.
