Summer doesn’t have to mean the end of sweater weather; at least not when the sweater in question is as sweet as Lenny. With its short sleeves, slightly looser gauge, and bold lace panel, Lenny is perfect for breezy beach days and after-dinner ice cream outings. Named after Lenny and Joe’s, the coastal Connecticut fish house where I learned to love seafood, Lenny is an homage to summers spent boating, swimming, and feasting on fish and chips by Long Island Sound.
Lenny is a seamless top-down sweater worked with some positive ease. It features a garter stitch collar, which is knit flat and then joined in the round before working the raglan sleeves and body.The simple lace pattern and light shaping make it an ideal sweater for advanced beginners.
