Too tired to carry a top-down sweater project on your commute, to kids’ lessons or the doctor’s office? This design’s for you.

Strippy’s an A-line, modern open women’s cardigan, in seven sizes with a trick up its sleeve. This is a bottom-up, simple sweater knit in pieces…seven pieces, to be exact. You’ll work towards a sleek and flexible cardigan while enjoying completely portable, simple patterned knitting that fits in a purse while you’re on the go!

Strippy requires knitting, purling, increases, decreases, and sewing up at the end. This design uses written instructions and a schematic. It calls for a double strand of lace-weight or a single strand of aran-weight yarn.
