Miss Ziggy pairs a classic drop-shoulder silhouette with bold, colorblocked stripes for a top-down pullover that is totally out of this world! Gather all of your favorite single skeins of fingering weight (and your trusty pocket scale) and create a gorgeous sweater that is totally one of a kind. Ellie chose to use the Nimbus base from Oink Pigments for its gorgeous drape and softness, in a galaxy of teals and purples. What will you choose? Moody jewel tones? Bright neon speckles? Rich earthy colors? The universe is at your fingertips!

Note: This project is meant for you to optimize yarn usage in the
striping sequence, so it’s best to begin with full skeins (or close to full

beginning of your project, and throughout knitting, to make sure you’re
on track and won’t have to play yarn chicken!
