Playful Stripes In Adult Sizes- Now Available!



The Playful Stripes Cardigan for women is now available for purchase!



This pattern has been years in the making and I am happy to have it finally all complete, 
Plus... I am all about matching. :)

This is an adult version of my original Playful Stripes Cardigan for little ones. (My very first sweater design from long ago!) Both the adult and child size version are knit from the bottom up in one piece with minimal seaming. I used the lovely Quince and Co. Owl yarn for my version, but the fun stripy yoke is the perfect opportunity to use up little scraps of colorful yarn you might have lying around.

If you have knit the child's version in the past.. you will know how addicting the striped portion is to knit up!



Here is the pattern information for those of you interested in knitting up a Playful Stripes Cardigan of your very own.
