I wanted to design a sweater with vertical stripes, but without the work of intarsia, so I decided to knit the sweater from side to side, with the sleeves picked up and knit down. The slip stitch pat- tern adds just a little interest to the stripes. This sweater looks wonderful on its own, and even better together with its coordinating cardigan (Pattern 109).
In Slip Stitch Stripe pattern, 17 sts and 25 rows = 4"/10cm.
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
