1, 2, 3, 4…I declare a stripe war! Stripe Quartet is a striped raglan cardigan that is easy to knit and effortless to wear. Knit top-down in one piece, it features such niceties as eyelet raglan increases and a curved shirt-tail style hem shaped by short rows and finished with an I-cord bind-off. Wear open as shown, or add a single clasp or shawl pin.
