We all need a bit of Neon Bliss in our lives! This striped everyday sweater is worked with a little bit of intarsia to make the stripes extra fun. If you haven’t worked intarsia before, this is your pattern to get started!

Neon Bliss features easy intarsia back and forth making it a fun knit that is not too demanding, and the simple single-color rows in-between give you a little break from the twisting. In the end you will have a fun little jumper, with one side in different color stripes than the other. The sweater is worked from the top down, starting with the upper back and then short rows for the front shoulders.

Neon Bliss Sweater is designed in collaboration with La Bien Aimée to celebrate La Bien Aimée Pop-Up shop in Paris, March 26 to April 6, 2024!
