Cape Cod is a slouchy and simple pullover for après beach. Lots of stockinette, a bit of lace, and distinct edgings make a fun and versatile knit. Plucky Sweater is a light merino, so although delicate it offers warmth on a cool day. Cape Cod is also a perfect sweater for a cotton or silk blend if you want a summery vibe without any wool content.
The cuff, hem and neckline ribbing really stands out when bordered in a purl ridge, and the lace panels are detailed without being fussy. The two front panels are actually the separate halves of the back arrowhead motif, worked so the design slants toward center separately on each side. I love how this lace pattern manages to be both textural and geometric at the same time, and it’s a fun one to work.
I love the bright pop of color, comfy fit, and ease of wear with this sweater - perfect for a cool night on the beach or a fall afternoon before or after the season ends.
Sample is in Plucky Sweater. Other yarns are suggested substitutues.
