And the second design is 
Gathering Stripes - adult version


Gathering Stripes is worked from the top down in one piece. It’s knitted loosely for light weight, yet the big cowl-neck adds some warmth and texture to the piece. This adult version has also some shaping for the waist and short rows for back of the neck.

Finished chest circumference: 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50)”  [75 (85, 95, 105, 115, 125) cm].
Yarn: 1000 (1100, 1200, 1350, 1480, 1580) yards [920 (1000, 1100, 1230, 1360, 1450) meters] in MC and 240 (260, 280, 300, 320, 340) yards [230 (250, 265, 280, 300, 320) meters] in CC of Jitterbug by Colinette/King of the Jungle merino fingering by Lioness Arts or other fingering/sport weight yarn.
Gauge: 22 sts and 28 rows in Stockinette stitch 

Note: There will soon be a male sized version of Gathering Stripes too. It will be added as a separate pdf, later this Spring.

Love your patterns. I have too much of a bust though to look good in doble buttons. Might try an altered version. Very pretty fit over the shoulders.

The beautiful simplicity of your designs so appealing! I especially love "After Dark" with its tweedy yarn and loose, high neck. Gorgeous.

I love both of them. I wish I could clone myself so I would have more time to knit!

Tosi nättejä molemmat neuleet, voisin ostaa kummankin ohjeen mutta mielummin suomeksi. Onnistuuko se?
