Take a closer look!
Popham Beach is one of the retreat designs for our fall 2015 make. wear. love. retreats on the coast of Maine. Maine beaches are... ...well, let's be honest. They're pretty chilly places. And they require warm, snuggly sweaters, which is exactly what you get with this comfortable pullover.
Popham Beach features long sleeves, a low-hip length, patch pockets, and is shown in the half-hourglass silhouette, which includes vertical dart waist shaping on the back of the sweater only. All of the edges are trimmed with Broken Rib, and the pockets are knit out of it as well, for texture. A wide scoop neckline takes any kind of layer you'd like to wear gracefully and with flattering lines.
I've shown the sweater here on Milly in a relaxed hourglass fit, long sweater length, and set-in sleeve construction. But Popham Beach is available in both set-in and drop-shoulder constructions and a variety of other torso silhouettes and fits, so make it your own!

We worked this sample in The Fibre Co. Cumbria, in the color "Castlerigg". Cumbria is a lovely wool blend with the tiniest bit of mohair for strength and beautiful shine. Amy liked this yarn at around 5.25 stitches to the inch.
