Watermark cowl neck sweater knitting pattern designed by Holli Yeoh | Published in Tempest

Watermark

Perfect for a walk along a blustery beach, Watermark is a tunic-length sweater with raglan sleeves and A-line shaping. The oversized cowl neck is worked in a simple lace pattern which also borders the hem and the deep cuffs. Worked flat and seamed for strength and structure, it works up quickly in worsted weight yarn. Designed to hang past the hips and kick out from the body to give a slim look to the hips and legs.
