Shells n’ seaglass
Line the sandshore

Waves roar towards me
Then curl up n’ hide

Above seagulls hovering
White blends in blue sky

Sandshore is a seamless cardigan worked from the top down. A clean mesh lace forms an intersection down the back, set slightly asymmetrically for interest. The Kestrel knits up quickly and is a smooth, dry summer yarn. It’s my new favorite!

"This cardigan was inspired by a poem my mother wrote to my father when they were younger" - Alicia Plummer

The yarn and pattern support are available at the Yarns By Design boutique.
