The Sand dunes sweater is a hip-length style knit that is worked from top to down. The Back and Front are knitted in rows up to the armpit before the Body is worked in rounds for as long as you wish. The Slanting striped stitch pattern runs throughout the garment, with a Seed stitch design at the shoulders and a double Rib stitch pattern with lace stitches at the neck, hem, and cuffs. There are two neck designs in this pattern: one is a folded neck and the other is a flat neck that replicates the Hem stitch pattern. This cosy piece of knitwear makes a practical addition to any winter wardrobe, keeping you snug both indoors and outdoors.
