Playful Stripes For Grown Ups

What seems like ages ago now I designed my first little sweater for children, Playful Stripes.

Over the years, I have so enjoyed seeing other knitters make their own versions with all sorts of different color combinations for their little ones. It is definitely a fun knit. The stripes are so addicting! The yoke offers a perfect opportunity to not only play with color but to use up odd little scraps of yarn lying around. 

I have gotten so many requests for an adult version, so in 2011 I began working on one. 
Only... I was pregnant and up to my eyeballs in knitting for my first book, Coastal Knits... so with little time to focus on the design, the resulting sweater did not turn out as expected. In fact it was an epic fail. The proportions were terrible and the colors I chose were kind of... disgusting once put together.

I was so discouraged by this that I didn't feel motivated to try again until now... A whole three years later.
With much more experience under my belt, I feel more confident and am finally happy with the result! I would like to introduce the new improved Playful Stripes sweater for women in Quince and Co. Owl yarn.

Pattern coming this Fall!
