FO: Beach Street Park sweater

Anyone looking for a sweater pattern that is easy to knit and super cozy to wear? Kirsten Kapur’s new Beach Street Park pullover pattern fits the bill on both counts.

I was lucky enough to snag a spot test knitting this sweater, and I really enjoyed making it.

This sweater uses a lightweight yarn (Kirsten used sport weight, I used a Berroco Vintage DK, a light DK weight yarn) worked at a loose gauge to achieve its cozy, drapey effect. I made this sweater with about 2″ of positive ease, and it has the perfect weekend sweater feel.

The sweater is not just relaxing to wear, either. With few increases, a seamless yoked construction, and Kirsten’s clear instructions, this thing was actually soothing to make.

The pattern is available for download now on Ravelry. You can also read more about the sweater’s origins on Kirsten’s blog, Through the Loops.

My pattern notes are on Ravelry, too.
