DetailsDive 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 color 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 then the other sleeve and front half are worked with a visible seam joining the two halves. A simple back rectangle provides another canvas for stripes and color blocks. The contrasting shoulders are worked in garter stitch while being 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 so you achieve a relaxed effortless style that doesn’t look too sloppy. The simple stitch pattern and shape produces a large canvas so don’t be afraid to make bold colorful choices and spontaneous striping sequences.
