high-water



Stripes, stripes and some more stripes.

High-Water

Never mind a cold breeze from the sea, building sand castles and picking seashells is great fun in this sailor-inspired pullover. It features a yellow button on both shoulders and horizontal stripes from half-way down. The seam detail on the sides adds structure to the piece and allows the stripes to proceed smoothly from one side of the pullover to the other. The pullover is worked top down in one piece.

Finished chest circumference: 23 (25¼, 27, 29, 30½, 32)” [58 (63, 68, 72, 76, 80) cm]
Yarn: 560 - 880 yards [512 - 805 m] of worsted weight yarn (both colours included)
Gauge: 18 sts and 26 rows in Stockinette stitch = 4" [10 cm]

3.90

Love your pattern. Would totally buy it if the budget wasn´t so tight. I need to knit a sweater for my oldest for this winter.

It was love from the first sight when I saw your pattern this morning on Ravelry. I purchased it immediately, will be casting on over the weekend. Thank you!

Well! Here is the very reason that I've not yet found "the perfect" yarn to make Gathering Stripes for my almost 4 year-old. Bravo!

Hei Veera, satuin huomaamaan Hesarissa kivan jutun sinusta. Sitä vaan halusin sanoa että jotenkin huomasi jo silloin alussa kun aloit laittaa ekoja malleja nettiin että noissa on kyllä jotakin sellaista joista ihan takuulla tykätään vähän laajemmaltikin. Ja niinhän näyttää käyneen!
Kaikkea hyvää sinne ja jatka tuolla ihanalla yksinkertaisella tyylilläsi.
