The Call of the Sea
AS FEATURED IN THE BBC DOCUMENTARY-KNITTING’S GOLDEN AGE
This highly popular swimsuit is based on a pattern from 1932 and features a flattering all-in-one short and over-skirt design which are knitted together before continuing to knit the body of the swimsuit. The front of the suit is adorned with a fabulous seagull in flight knitted using intarsia technique.
The swimsuit is designed to be worn with negative ease, which means you must make sure the finished swimsuit is smaller than the intended wearer.
