Notes

Test knit for Elena of this beauty.

Stripes sequence: ABCBABCBAB…

CO with A - pink and switched to B - dark purple after 11 rows to hide where yarns join.
I joined color C - light purlpe in the last round of shoulder shaping, but not at marker B, but marker A on left shoulder to avoid all the trouble with jogless stripes.

It’s about an inch longer (I wanted to finish the pink stripe).

I’m so hoping my sister takes some decent modelled pics of this wonderful design…
