I am so excited to introduce the Catalina Beach Sweater! I almost gave up on summer knitting, but I was inspired at the end of July to do one more beach sweater – and this is perfect because it easily transitions for the fall season.
The Catalina Beach Sweater is a great transitional piece for your wardrobe.
Designed to be worn on those cooler, summer nights, the Catalina is knit with cotton yarn and designed with lace eyelets and chevron – to give it a chunky sweater feel, but without the weight.
It’s oversized, with enough ease for you to slip it on easily over your swimsuit – or your button down.
You don’t have to retire it at the end of the season. It’s perfect for layering in the spring or fall, over a t-shirt or a button down, and it’s perfect for school or work.
The shoulders are dropped, giving it a casual vibe, and the sleeves stop at the elbows – perfectly cool for all seasons.
