Seashore Stroll





fingering weight yarn


Seashore Stroll, by indie designer Jennifer Shiels Toland, is a gorgeous, lightweight tee for summer by the sea. Made in our light + springy Weld, this nubbly textured yoke pullover is available in both a short and long sleeve version. Made from the top down in the round, the breathable gauge of this design is perfect for chilly days and sea breezes. 

A note: Seashore Stroll is available as a digital download and a yarn+pattern bundle here at, but 100% of pattern sales revenue goes directly to the designer, just as if you bought the pattern directly from their website or on Ravelry. We think this way, everybody wins: you get an easier, more straightforward experience as a consumer, our indie designer friends get to realize the maximum revenue from their work, and you get another great way to access new designs in our yarn outside of our pattern collections.
