Striped sweaters are always in style. Narrow stripes are a great way to play with color, and explore different color combinations.
Worked in the round from the bottom up, this pullover uses the Jogless Join method of working stripes in the round to avoid that jog at the beginning of the round when changing colors.
Begin with K1, P1 Rib, then go into stockinette stripes for the remainder of the sweater. The shoulders are shaped using wrap-and-turn short rows, then the stitches are joined using 3-Needle Bind-Off.
The sleeves are also worked in the round to the underarm length, and the cap worked back and forth. A narrow band of garter stitch edges the neck.
