The Five By Five sweater is an easy casual sweater, super-comfortable because of the stretchy ribbing. The straight body is knit bottom-up in a variation of the contiguous method,, with a fun striping pattern to keep your attention. It has a scoop neck and tight sleeves.
It looks lovely in slightly variegated yarns, but solids would look fab as well. Also lightweight cottons would work great, because the ribbing adds stretch.
Excellent for using up single skeins and remnants.
