Pretty stripes and textures work their way across this garment that allows for all the colour play stripe fans love best. Choose a high contrast of light and dark colours or something gentler and subtly complimentary. Making use of simple slipped stitches, lines and texture are created to compliment the colour sequence with some shoulder shaping for a more flattering fit. This garment is worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. This sweater can be worn with between 5-20 cm (2-8 in) positive ease at bust, depending on how boxy you want the finished garment to be.
