Take a closer look!
I grew up on the water with my grandpa and uncles, and will go out on any kind of boat, any time. But if I get to choose, there’s no lovelier place in the world than Seguin Island on a brisk summer day. Located offshore in Midcoast Maine, Seguin is home to Maine’s tallest active light station and can be visited either by ferry/charter, or by twisting the arm of one’s nearest uncle, depending. Even in summertime, the waters off the coast of Maine can be chilly - so a sweater is always advised.
This kicky pullover is simple to knit but engaging too, thanks to the thin stripes that adorn the sweater’s body. A simple scoop neck, 1x1 ribbed trim, and contrast-color hem and sleeve cuffs complete a look that’s unfussy and timeless. I thoroughly recommend it for all boating excursions and any time the air warrants just a bit of warmth. It's available in both set-in sleeve and drop-shoulder construction, and any of CustomFit's silhouettes, lengths, and fits. This is one of my most enduringly popular designs.
Seguin will look great in any gauge, but please note that you'll need two different colors! Of your total yarn quantity, about 1/3 of it should be in the CC.
