Vashon Island ... just a ferry ride from Seattle. What a fine trip when you're knitting or wearing this easy-fitting sweater with its nautical collar, lace front panels, long cabled sleeves, wide neckline and a dramatic faux cable slanting across the back. The loose fit adds versatility to this sweater ... wear it casually open, fasten it low for a portrait neckline, or high for serious coziness. A truly great date sweater.
