About the designer

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, pick up stitches, yarnover, increase, decreaese

Pattern Description:

This stitch pattern was perfect for a simple shell, and I couldn't wait to work it up in a yarn that shows great stitch definition. The texture is just beautiful and the pattern creates a natural wave to the bottom edge. Show off this shell all by itslef or pair it with its matching cardigan (Fir Cone Lace Cardigan #107)

The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.

  • XS (31.5") to 5X (62")
