This modular garment begins with striped short row wedges followed by an easy breezy garter stitch rectangle. Stitches are picked up to knit a colorful striped back square. Two rectangles form the the sides and tapered short sleeves are worked in the rnd with an I-cord bind off. Two large short row borders finish the top and bottom of the garment and you get to choose which way to wear it! Flip it upside down, fold the collar, and button the front for a variety of looks. The combination of simple shapes and garter stitch results in an effortless silhouette that you can wear over other layers. The color blocked sections are ideal for using up scraps and stash yarns, especially vibrant pops of color.
