I am so happy to announce that Carolina Beach, is officially available on Ravelry as a free download. Carolina Beach is a flattering, airy summer cover up, perfect for hot summers days, and summer knitting.
Carolina Beach is knit in Katia's Lino, a 100% linen in a fingering weight. Carolina Beach is knit on a US 7 needle, for a loose gauge and gets its flowy texture from staggered yarn overs.
I used 3 colors of Lino echoing the sand, the see and the sky. The cover up is knit in one piece and simply seamed at the shoulder. It gracefull drapes over the shoulders, and flatters the hips with its asymmetrical fit.
Delicate picots fringe the cover up. The spirit of the piece is effortless almost nonchalant, like a walk on the beach...
