Short Description: Leelanau was inspired by the coastlines of Northern Michigan, of freshwater lakes where you can see to the bottom but not the other side. This sweater celebrates the origin of the yarn it was knit with. Hailing from Leelanau County, Michigan, where winter cottages invite you in to warm embracing fires and cool black summer nights are enjoyed on a campsite with friends. A backdrop of memories knit up into a boxy, wear-anywhere pullover.
With a simple raglan silhouette and classic Setesdal stitch pattern, Leelanau is a sweater for a variety of shapes and sizes. Sixteen sizes, ranging from infant (3-6 months) to adult (up to 60” chest circumference), this sweater is sure to be one you come back to. My desire is that this sweater can be a wardrobe staple not just for you, but also for others who are deserving of your hand knits!
