Atlantica summer jersey


Cool breezes at sea require a reasonably warm sweater – the Atlantica summer sweater is knitted from a blend of linen, cotton and viscose and has three-quarter sleeves. The stripes are given structure by using raised stitches, an easy way to bring a striped sweater to life.
The ribbed edges are extra neat with twisted stitches and the whole sweater is worked from the top down, so you can easily try out a length that suits you! This is how Annelie Verbrugge describes her fantastic design Atlantica summer sweater.

The recommended yarn for this sweater is Svarta Fårets Cecilia, a lovely yarn in cotton viscose and linen, if you prefer to adapt your sweater to cool summer evenings or autumn days, you can choose a wool yarn with the same stretch as Cecilia (220 m/100 g) but keep in mind that a change of yarn can give a different appearance of the sweater. To sum up, this is the optimal sweater for every conceivable occasion, why not knit one in each material and one in each color?
