A clever color placement, a different spin on stripes and an asymmetric collar take this sweater from the simple to the striking. A delicate balance between Stockinette stitch and Reverse Stockinette stitch in the stripes add depth and texture to a ordinary piece. Couple that with the solid color front but the –Wow, it has stripes! – on the back and you have a eye catcher in any crowd.
