Available in two weights (worsted and fingering), Left Coast is a playful adventure in texture that employs a spin-off of sequence knitting and multiple colors to achieve a design that requires very little fuss and comes together almost magically.
Left Coast is not just a lovely study in texture – it’s an engaging project; perfect for social or travel knitting, or – better yet – knitting on the beach. The transitions keep things interesting, and the stitch patterns are fun and almost magical the way they come together.
This quick and simple knit works just as beautifully in worsted weight as it does in fingering weight – and both versions result in an accessory that is lovely as a gift or as an addition to your wardrobe.
Contrast is the key – the more dramatic, the better.
