Dopamine. Because stripes are addictive, colour is fun to play with and I bet you can’t knit just one.

Dopamine is that cool, slightly offbeat sweater with sleek lines. Depending on your yarn choice, it’s suitable for the office or curling up at the cottage or at the beach.

The stripe sequence is strategically placed to highlight your waist and shape. Whether you’re curvy or not, the dense darker stripes at the waistline visually create an hourglass shape. Try this in fingering/sock weight to wear as a light layer or sport/DK weight for cozy warmth without being too heavy.

As this was designed to work in tandem with CustomFit software, to ensure perfectly placed stripes, this recipe is the only pattern available for Dopamine. Please read below for further instructions BEFORE you purchase this item.
