Amazing Technicolor Dreamsweater
Dive into your stash and gather an array of colorful fingering weight yarns for this sideways constructed pullover. Hold yarns double for a thicker gauge and marled effect. The colorful journey begins with a ribbed sleeve cuff followed by moss stitch. Striped moss stitch continues on the front half of the sweater, and the other sleeve and front half are worked with visible seam joining the two halves. A simple back rectangle provides another canvas for stripes and color blocks. Contrasting shoulders are worked in garter stitch and are attached to the front and back at the same time. Short rows raise the back neck and an I-cord bind off finishes the v-neckline. Decreases shape the bottom front edge for a subtle cropped effect. The oversized boxy shape is complimented by tight fitted sleeves and crisp shoulder details to achieve a relaxed effortless style that doesn't look too sloppy.
Sample is shown in a variety of fingering and worsted yarns. Suggested alternatives are listed.
