Tidal Pool is an updated take on a classic gansey sweater, with a clean silhouette and slight a-line shaping. The scoop neck, sleeves, and hem are trimmed with small amounts of 2×2 ribbing, and textured stitch patterning decorates the top of both the front and back of the garment. 3/4 sleeves and a sport-weight yarn make this sweater comfortable in several seasons. I designed it for my fall 2016 make. wear. love. retreat, which is held on the coast of Maine where I grew up – and it reflects the classic, unfussy style I grew up seeing there.
You can buy the Tidal Pool Pullover in one of two ways:
- A traditional pattern PDF, for $8, written in an a-line shape, a single gauge, and for 12 standard sizes. A download will be immediately available.
- A custom Tidal Pool pattern, for $12.50, written to your exact gauge (from fingering to bulky) and to measurements of your choice. A credit to customize this pattern will be immediately deposited into your account upon purchase. You’ll need to store the gauge and measurements you’d like the pattern written for before customizing.
