    Stripes! [Andrea Mowry]

    Stripes by Andrea Mowry is a round-yoke sweater worked from the top down. This pullover is the perfect blank canvas. Think of it as a template to mix up colours, yarn bases and your creativity! You could even knit it up in a solid colour for a classic wardrobe staple. Be playful and have fun!

    This sweater is worked seamlessly. The sleeve stitches are put on hold while the body is finished and then returned to the needle. This sweater includes cropped or full-length fit instructions and different collar options.
