The Bumpy Sweater is a top-down DK sweater with i-cord stripes. After completing the I-cord, you leave a long tail that you later weave in to create a charming dotted line, adding an extra flair to the design. This pattern offers a wonderful opportunity to experiment with texture, especially when blending the softness of Fluff with a beautiful fading yarn like Spincycle.⁠

Fluff is available HERE!

Fluff is a sport-weight yarn with great versatility. I chose to knit it at a DK gauge. If you are using another yarn, look for a DK-weight yarn, and do a swatch.

Weight: Sport
Yarn B is thinner than Yarn A to avoid puckering on the i-cord stripes
