Bold stripes knit in a pullover that has a slight flare at the bottom framed by a folded hem. The sleeve is more fitted, using short rows, which is less bulky. Knit from the bottom up. Each color takes about 200 yds. depending on your size. I purchased 3 yarns that went together well and filled in the rest from my stash. A great sweater that is versatile and easy to wear.

Yarn and Sizes
The sweater uses 6 colors of sock/fingering weight yarn. The sweater uses approximately 160( 185/200/210/250/275 yds of each of the 6 colors. I bought 3 skeins of sock/fingering yarn that complimented each other. Then, I supplemented from my stash. Hopefully, you have enough to do the same. If you should run out of a certain yarn, simply substitute another yarn as none of the pieces follow a stripe pattern. No-one will be the wiser! I used the following: Color A: Aguas Malabrigo sock 440 yds. Color B: Head Over Heels, Color C: Harpoon, Color D :Desert Rose Magpie Solo Fingering 100% Superwash Merino Color E: Chickory Dandelion 434 yards Madeline Tosh 90% wool, 10% Linen Color F :Nightshade :The Fibre Co.
