Stripe a Pose!

I have a new design to share with you all today: Stripe a Pose!*

All my favorite sweaters are striped, I just can’t get enough of them! The Stripe a Pose sweater is pretty much my dream sweater: relaxed fit, dropped shoulders, split hem, crew neck, and, of course, stripes!

The sweater shown pairs a brigth neon pink with a neutral; of course you could opt for navy and white for a classic Breton-inspired look.

The sample is knitted in Stylecraft Special DK,* which makes this a really cost-effective project. 

If you want to add the pattern to your Ravelry favourites or queue, you can find the pattern page here.

Pattern Notes
This pattern is worked from the top down. The Back is worked flat as far as the armholes with short row shaping for the shoulders. The Front is worked flat as far as the armholes with short row shaping for the shoulders and neckline. The Front and Back are joined and the sweater is worked in the round as far as the split hem, which is worked flat with an intarsia i-cord edging. The Sleeve stitches are picked up from the armhole. The Sleeves are worked in the round with decreases along their length until a ribbed cuff is worked. The Neckband stitches are picked up along the Neckline edge and the Neckband is worked in the round.
