Hipster Stripe Cardigan
Hipster Stripe is a graphic cardigan that features skinny black and white stripes and a deep, flattering neckline. Its short sleeves make it a great spring or summer cover-up. Perfect over a bright shirt!
The sweater is knit from the top down. Since the only finishing is picking up the front bands and none of the shaping is done simultaneously, this sweater would be appropriate for an adventurous beginner.
