Usually when we knit colorful stripes in different textures, color blips show up from the purl bumps in a new color. And usually designers shun these blips, since they break up clean lines. This sweater traces a different path: the blips are a feature, not a bug. A split-neck opening, drop-shoulder sleeves, and loose fit add up to a casual silhouette.
