Gather a colorful palette of colors in DK weight to knit this top-down sweater. The pattern is knit seamlessly in the round for easy enjoyable knitting. Stripes and slipped stitches create the graphic brick motif and you only work with one color at a time. You can use as many contrast colors as you like combined with one main color to frame the painted bricks. Folded hems and ribbed cuffs frame the edges for this modern and stylish sweater.
