Laura Aylor shares the story of her Brier Island pullover..."Brier Island is a small island in Nova Scotia at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. Every year for 13 years our little family made the long journey by car and 3 ferries to reach this lovely, remote, unspoiled spot. It’s hard to explain why we love it so much - there’s not much there but sea and shore, whales and seals, lighthouses and fog. Summers are always cool (which was the initial attraction for us when we were trying to escape hot, humid Virginia in July and August!) While I was working on this sweater I was thinking that it would be perfect for evening walks down to the water to collect seaglass, watching the sun set at Western Light, or sitting at Northern Light looking for whales."

Knit from the top down using a variation of Barbara Walker’s simultaneous set-in sleeve method of seamless construction, this casual pullover features a front pocket, reverse stockinette panels on the sleeves and body, a double-layered reverse stockinette collar, and a split garter stitch hem.
