Sandtoppe is a sweater worked top down and in the round. Sandtoppe has bands with an easy lace pattern (and bobbles) from shoulders and down the sleeves. The simplicity of the lace bands suits the all-over texture of the body. It’s meant to slightly flare at the waist. It’s pretty and feminine to wear and fun to knit!
Note! Lace pattern at the sleeve includes bobbles, but if you find the bobbles too big, they can be exchanged with smaller nupps instead.
