Stripe It Up!
This design was inspired by my daughter Matilda, who just loves to model my hand knits!
Matilda is just at home in a pretty summer dress as she is in leggings and a long-sleeved t-shirt. Here’s a cardigan that suits any outfit she chooses, whether dressy or casual. We both love the pops of colour at the sleeve caps - they’re fun to knit and lend the cardigan a contemporary vibe.
Stripe It Up! is a seamless cardigan, knit in one piece from the top down. The sleeve caps are formed using raglan shaping and intarsia joins. With simple, clear instructions, this is a quick project that will fly off your needles.
The pattern includes a schematic as well as links to some helpful video tutorials on making your intarsia look perfect.
If you’re diving into your stash for the stripes, just remember - fingering/sock weight yarn held double is approximately equal to DK-weight. Maybe you can use up some sock yarn scraps? Whatever you choose, you’ll have fun combining your colours!
