Worked in varying stripes using yarn that can be substituted from your own stash, this is a truly creative knit!

The pattern includes info on the shades and stripes used in the original, including exact quantities for each colour. The pattern has a table with the sequence of the original stripes, plus a blank stripe table for your own colourway.

The main yarn weight is worsted but you can sneak in oddments of DK and aran.

This garment is designed to be very oversized, with slightly cropped bracelet-style sleeves and standard body length.

However, there are notes in the pattern to help you modify the fit to your preference if you prefer a more classic look.

The original pattern had a straight boat neck, but v2 now also contains optional front neck shaping and rib neck edging.

Finished busts if you don’t use the modification notes are as follows:
48 (52, 56.5, 60, 64)ins 122 (132, 144, 152, 162)cm

Sleeve lengths for all sizes are 14ins 35cm, which will give slightly longer arms for each size due to the extra length provided by the wider drop shoulders but will still be bracelet length.

Finished body length is 22 (22.5, 22.75, 23.25, 23.5)ins 56 (57, 58, 59, 60)cm.
