The origin of this sweater is an Inspirational Dress Stalking Story…I saw this woman in an amazing dress cycle by. Hot with curiosity and desire, I followed her on my own bike, then into a design store. I managed to come close enough to say casually, “great dress”. Taupe silk with enormous neon pink squares. She told me it was from New York…
This oversize sweater is so easy to wear and easy to knit. The vibrant neon checks make it fashionable and noticeable. If you want to stand out a little bit less, all color combinations are possible…

design features:
short knit-on sleeves
knit flat
checks, vertical lines crocheted on
