I love stripes and I always try to find new ways to have fun with them! Julie Asselin’s gorgeous mini-skein gradient set was the start off point for this design, mixing it all up to create Fresh!

The pullover is knit from the top-down, in one piece and seamlessly. It is knit flat to the underarm, then the body is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up to knit the sleeves and the collar in the round.

Please note that if you are using mini-skeins, the size of each skein might vary so be prepared to have to buy one more set or to have to change the stripe sequence slightly.
