Pattern Details

Hipster Stripe is a graphic cardigan that features skinny black and white stripes and a deep, flattering neckline. Its short sleeves make it a great spring or summer cover-up. Perfect over a bright shirt! The sweater is knit from the top down. Since the only finishing is picking up the front bands and none of the shaping is done simultaneously, this sweater would be appropriate for an adventurous beginner.

I gravitate toward designs with clean lines and contemporary (but not too contemporary!) stylings. I strive to make my designs available to knitters in as wide a range of sizes as possible. Things I love: cables, simple lace, strong lines, designs that look far more complicated to make than they actually are, and beautiful, saturated colors complementing each other in stripes or colorwork. Besides designing, I am also an aspiring fiction writer. I work on my novels for kids and young adults when I'’m not knitting as fast as my hands will go.
