Product details

Amaro is a simple pullover that could be worn all year, but I was thinking late summer when I knit this. Pretty much exactly as Melissa wore it on Cape Cod - after a day of swimming, with a bright tank and shorts for when when the sun goes down and the wind blows across the sand.

It's got an easy fit, a split hem, a classic shape, and an open, flattering neckline. I combined those elements with a bold lace repeat to create a simple, but modern sweater that will go with anything.

I wanted to play with construction a bit, so this seamless saddle shoulder is based on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s percentage system, but modified just a bit. Knit in Shalimar Yarn’s Breathless DK, the fabric has a touch of sheen and a soft easy drape - plus, it’s warm and light and perfect for a cool summer evening.

The sample is in Shalimar Yarns Breathless DK. Suggested substitutes are shown below.
