I’ve been designing sweaters again.
I started this back in June, and I took my time working on it throughout the summer.
It’s based on the Everyday Cardigan in shape and basic construction, but the yoke is done in stockinette stripes rather than ribbing; the collar, cuffs, and hem are worked in a contrasting color; and the button bands are added last.
So, what do you think? Is this something you would knit if there were a pattern available? Because I would definitely consider writing one up if there’s interest!
UPDATE! Pattern now available 🙂
I can imagine it with more subtle color differences like light brown stripes on beige. Or maybe in three colors, where the sweater is tan, for instance, the stripes are red, and all of the remaining trim (collar, cuffs, hem, button bands) is blue.
If I wasn’t so bored Bored BORED with stockinette stitch right now, I’d probably knit a couple of samples. But no. Time for this girl to do something more challenging for a while: like cables!
