This sweater is something I have had in mind for a while. I absolutely love the wrong side of stockinette stripes. I think they have their own charm. I had begun this sweater during the World Series. Now, I am not much of a fan of the San Francisco Giants, but my daughter is. So, while the colors weren’t purposely made to be Giants colors, with the timing and everything I decided to pay homage to her team and call it Frisco.
Top down construction and stripes! This makes a classic cardigan with a fun little twist. Now, don’t fret, you do not have to purl those sleeves!
