We love the casual style of this easy summer sweater by Sandra Braida and can see it knit in everything from linen to merino. From the designer: Barbâtre is a mid-season sweater, slightly oversized with a deep V-neck, perfect for layering! Stockinette stitch and vegetal yarn provide a very nice drape. This sweater is mainly knitted in the round, bottom-up and seamlessly, only the top front and back are knitted back and forth.

We think this would be great knit with any of the following yarns:

Classic Elite Yarns Firefly (on sale!)
Shibui Twig
Quince & Co. Sparrow
Euroflax Sport
Madelinetosh Pashmina

Pattern available in English and French!
