Blue Betty Sample

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Blue Betty was born out of a desire for a colorwork sweater that would be flattering to every body type. The sweater is worked in one piece from the bottom up, in the round up to the neck shaping and back and forth after that. The only finishing is grafting underarm sts and knitting the ribbed neckband.
