Milam Gap Boatneck Sweater
Last summer my family and I spent our vacation in the Blue Mountains of Virginia. While in Virginia, we spent a day on the scenic and winding Skyline Drive. This sweater is my memory of that day trip. The intricate details of the cables on the front of the sweater is reminiscent of the slow winding path of the Skyline Drive, while the plain stockinette back is a reminder of the calm of sitting on a porch in a rocking chair with a glass of local wine on a cool evening watching the mountain lines fade into darkness.
The boatneck sweater is worked in one piece in the round from the bottom up to the armhole opening, then separated for the back and front. Shoulders are seamed and sleeves are picked up and worked in the round from the top down with short rows shaping the sleeve caps.
