Beach Martinis

$5.50

YARN: 4 skeins (3.5 oz, 384 yards each) Expression Fiber Arts Bamboo Alpaca Fingering Weight yarn. Shown in colorways; (A) Resort, (B) Sailboat, (C) Happy Dolphin, (D) Coco. If those colorways aren’t available, any 4 skeins of Fingering Weight yarn will work. 

SIZE : Approximately 19" tall by 46" wide after blocking and seaming.

NEEDLES: 16" and 24" circular US Size 4 (3.5 mm) needles, one of each.

Notes From the Designer:

•When I started thinking about this project, I immediately thought of the beach. Walking along the shore with my feet in the water, wind whipping my hair around. I like the beach during the off season, when no one is around, but it can get a little chilly. This shawl/cardigan/wrap/open front tee/what-have-you is perfect for the beach, or a heavily air-conditioned office. 
 
•Stockinette on the back panels keeps you warm, a little lace on the front panels adds a nice focal point (and makes me think of ocean and sky), and a hint of trim at the armholes and neckline makes for a colorful touch without going crazy.
 
•Seamed at the back and sides, with a three-needle BO at the shoulders and some easy trim work, this is a great piece for knitters just starting to explore garment construction without jumping into a full sweater.
 
•The name is a conglomeration of two things I was thinking about while knitting this piece. I was picturing myself at the beach, but also listening to a 90s alternative song called "Free" by The Martinis. "So free for the moment/that's somewhere between the earth and the sky. So free for the moment/that's because I wanna be lost/don't try to find me." I always think of the beach when I hear those lines, because the horizon where ocean meets sky seems like the perfect actualization of that song. The name stuck.
 
Errata: The CO for squares C and D should both be 104 sts.

Beach Martini Wrap

I like the lace pattern used in this design. Also, the presentation of these patterns is nice because so many photos gives a chance to see all aspects of the pattern, you know what to expect.

Pattern looks easy to understand. Can't wait to start it.

Love this pattern and have made several of these hats for family and friends.

Great!
5 Stars

This is a nice, well-written pattern! The only thing that could have been clearer was the list of terminology. It was all there, bit it was in a long unbroken wall of text that was difficut to read/look at. Not a big deal though!

My yarn arrived yesterday. It is beautiful. Colors look better than the photos show. The quality is soft and drapey. The pattern seems to read easily. I will start it soon. Looking forward to this project.
