Savvy stripes: as good at the drafting table as they are for lazy Sundays at the coffeehouse with a favorite dystopian novel. Worked in pieces and seamed, Bradbury is precisely tailored through the shoulders for a neat and comfortable fit. The raglan seams are exposed for a constructed look at the yoke, and a block of the lighter color emphasizes the breadth of the shoulders. We chose a high-contrast color pairing for graphic impact; try a subtle shift between warm and cool neutrals or pair closely related shades for an entirely different feel.

Needles

Size A (for Main Fabric):
One 24″ circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size B (for Ribbing):
One each 16″ and 24″ circular needles, one size smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

Size C (24″ length optional; for Neckband and Tubular Cast On)
One each 16″ and 24″ circular needles, one size smaller than Size B

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
