Easy to knit and easy to wear, the Southold Sweater is all about casual comfort. Southold is knit in one piece from side to side and features the texture of reverse stockinette stitch, elbow-length dolman sleeves, twisted ribbing, and a hint of lace behind the neck for an unexpected bit of whimsy. Quince and Co.'s Sparrow linen yarn lends the sweater just the right drape, three-season wearability, and a feel that only improves the more it's worn and washed.
Note: The Southold sweater is designed to be worn with 0-5" of positive ease for an easy fit, and the sample shown is the 35" size worn with 3" of ease.

I'm a Long Island dweller who loves to design knitwear (and even a smidge of crochet!). My designs can be found here on Craftsy and on my website, www.makewisedesigns.com!
What inspires me? rich colors; clean, strong lines; modern interpretations of traditional motifs; and texture in all of its forms.
