Pattern description from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation: “I grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia, a town better known for its conservative leanings than its music scene. You could find a 7-Eleven and a church on any corner, making it the only place I know where you can self-medicate with Jesus and a Slurpee at any time of day. nevertheless, my fondest memory is of moshing underage at the Boathouse. The musicians were gods to a suburban church girl turned punk rock acolyte, and salvation was a baptism in angry guitar riffs and cigarette smoke. This sweater is inspired by all things punk rock and by my friend Christopher, closet rock start and Anglophile. Note: This very fine, almost diaphanous sweater is very stretchy. That’s why the finished measurements are smaller than actual bust size, to achieve a nice fit.”
