I really like designer Andi Satterlund because she’s a lady with curves who designs for ladies with curves (last winter I made another sweater by her, Armande, and it really looks great). Plus she’s into simple seamless construction and her sweaters are super cute! So when Waters crossed through my Ravelry feed I was extra pleased to see its made with one of my favouirte summer yarns, Quince & Co Sparrow.
From the Designer
“Light and easy Waters’s uncomplicated details provide fuss-free Summer style. This retro top features a high front neckline with a deep scooped back, classic skinny stripes, and loads of relaxing stockinette. It’s knit seamlessly from the top down, starting with the back. A small amount of short row shaping on the shoulders helps the simple shape hang well. Stitches are picked up from each shoulder for the fronts, and the body is joined to be knit in the round with waist and hip shaping. Waters fits best with 0-3 in / 0-8 cm of positive ease.”
