Pattern Description:

Drip drop is a fitted pullover with 2-color intarsia assymetric placed cables. The cables are kind of randomly worked to the right and to the left so the 2nd color pops up and disappears giving the illusion of drops of water. They are placed on the front and they curl around the neck to the back. There are 2 more cables at the bottom of the 3/4 set-in sleeves.
Can be worn with no ease or a little negative ease.
Drip drop is worked flat (front and back together) and bottom up with separately worked set-in sleeves (also worked flat).
This pattern is written and comes with a chart for the intarsia-cables.
