Item details

This listing is for the pdf knitting pattern of The Eastport Sweater/Dress, a beautiful A-line tunic with cap sleeves of simplicity that can be worn over shirts, blouses or on its own!

The Dress version features free form crochet lace at the bottom (also optional is a simple crochet or ribbing edge for the bottom), a simple cowl-neck and echoing sleeve pattern.

This is the first knit design that I created in my little house in Eastport, Maine - Easter 2012...

Material & Gauge:

For size S-L 10 -16 oz of hand-spun yarn, knitable with needles US 17 (12.75 mm) - 250 - 400 yards depending on yarn & about 20 yards of contrasting yarn for the crochet edges of the Sweater
Allow more yards when working the Dress with the freeform crochet border at the bottom.

gauge: 2.25 sts and 2.25 rows = 1 inch over stockinette stitch

Skills needed: cast on, knit, purl, cast off, pick up stitches for neckline, knitting in the round, simple crochet for contrast edging

Difficulty level: Intermediate.

This pattern was designed with handspun yarn in mind.

Substitute with any commercial bulky/chunky yarn to match gauge (needle size)

Larger sizes can be easily accommodated by casting on more stitches.

Alternatively you may adapt the pattern as is with the use of larger needles (and bulkier yarn) to create sizes medium & large.

Handspun Yarn for the Sample Design of the Sweater showcased in this listing was created with Namaste Farms mohair locks, raw silk & Homestead Farm Lambswool loveliness, entirely handprocessed by yours truly.

Additional policies

Each item has been crafted with a lot of love and handiwork in a smoke free environment, and is unique either in fiber, color or design or all of the above.

Most of my designs are truly one of a kind, because I use my own hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns. I also will occasionally use commercial yarns, but will not promote a particular brand. I mostly work with my own patterns. I also draw inspiration from printed patterns, but overall hardly work from a particular one pattern and oftentimes end up combining various elements from what catches my attention and inspiration.

I do want to state that I have 2 short-haired non-shedding dogs (Chocolate Lab & Weimeraner X), but they know to stay out of their mommy's fiber palace. Very rarely do I find a stray hair in any of my fiber projects.

I am happy to spin any of my spinning batts that I am offering here on the site for you. Just contact me :)

If you see an item that sold or want a current listing in a different color, contact me. If I can, I will make another one or discuss different color/fiber options with you.
