Product description

No nautically inspired collection could be complete without a garment in Fisherman’s Rib. This form of brioche stitch is simple to work and creates a spongy, warm fabric. Here it’s cleverly enlivened with a delicate lace motif for a subtle feminine quality that can dress up or dress down. Docklight is knit in the round to the underarms and then completed working flat with set-in sleeves for a tailored fit. Tubular cast-ons keep the hems and cuffs professional; if you want to substitute a different method, be sure to choose one that’s stretchy enough to match the fabric. The neckband is picked up after the pieces are seamed, worked to double length, then folded and stitched down inside.

The elasticity of the Fisherman’s Rib means you can knit Docklight four or five inches larger than your actual measurements to achieve a relaxed and comfortable sweater that still looks fitted enough to wear with skirts or wide-leg trousers.

Designer: Julie Hoover

Collection: Fall 2014
