Inspiration for this quick top down striped cardigan came from another of my favorite flavors, blueberry. The stripes remind me of the swirl of colors and ribbon of fruit in a blueberry swirl bar available on our local ice cream truck. A unique button tab gives a modern touch to a mostly vintage inspired, top down short sleeved cardigan. The Aran weight gauge ensures that this little cardi is instant gratification.

I love knitting. Through my love(some would say obsession), I have discovered the world of knitting design. I have always been drawn to different aspects of design, whether it be graphic design, home design, or fashion design. I am an artist at heart and I find myself most satisfied in the realm of knitting.
