Fruit Stripe Pullover
Designed by Rachel Brockman

Inspired by a favorite gum from childhood, the Fruit Stripe Pullover colorful and cozy. The short color changes of brightly-hued Cobblestone paired with solid Donnina creates an exciting striped fabric. Simple shaping and a sea of garter stitch makes this a great first sweater. It’s perfect for adding a little pizazz to your wardrobe!

PATTERN NOTES
This sweater is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. We recommend using the Sloped Bind-off method for neck and shoulder shaping. Stitches for the neckband are picked up and knit in the round.

When changing colors, do not break yarn at each color change. Instead, carry the yarn up the side of the work and twist the strands of yarn around one another every color change, taking care not to twist too tightly.
