Slips and Stripes is a top down, seamless pullover that contains lots of stockinette on a speckled base and some bright slipped stitches. It is meant to have an easy, straight up and down fit and because it’s top-down you can stop when it’s the perfect length.

This sweater is sized with 0-2 inches of ease. For a looser garment be sure to go up in size.
