A traditional fisherman sweater with a feminine twist, lobster(woman) is restyled for the growing number of women involved in the trade. A scooped neck replaces the customary turtleneck, and the bodice is slightly fitted and elongated to show off a feminine silhouette. Lobster is worked in one piece from the bottom-up, with the body and sleeves knit separately and joined at the underarms. It is shown here in Swans Island Worsted,100% organic merino wool. It is amazingly soft, making the sweater wearable with nothing underneath. CONSTRUCTION The body and sleeves are worked in-the-round from the bottom-up and joined at the underarm. Then the raglan yoke and collar are worked.
