These stripes are biased! They believe color should dance diagonally from row to row across knit fabric, with strong contrast or bold blends. There are two takes on the same garment in this pattern, as well as mini-tutorials on the shape and striping. Stash Dive plays with color and texture while Optical Blend explores what the eye sees when mixing
color. Which “Take” will you try?

Both Takes in this pattern, Stash Dive and Optical Blend, are given in two sizes. The necklines in Stash Dive are both 28˝ 71 cm, while the necklines for Optical Blend are 26˝ 66 cm. In both Takes, the smaller size has a bottom circumference of 52˝ 132 cm while that of the larger size is 56˝ 142 cm.
