Keep It simple sweater

I love simplicity and stripes. My favourite top in the world is a really old white jersey with black stripes. I was wearing it recently and suddenly wondered why I had never tried to recreate it in crochet. So that’s exactly what I did!

Life is better when you keep it simple!
