So I started this sweater for my best friend last fall, intending it to be her Christmas present, but at some point I really lost the passion for it and it sat on the needles for a long time, little more than the top half formed.

A couple weeks ago I finally picked it up again and got to work! Yay!



I can't believe I ever got sick of it seeing as I hated giving it away; I fell in love with this sweater in the end!

It's all Caron Simply Soft. It's ten rows dark grey, two rows white, ten rows pink, two rows white repeated c:
(Though I realized too late one grey stripe is 9 rows! Can you tell which one? Tongue)

I think the silver cuffs really make the colors pop. I love these stripes but doubt I'll ever do them like this again. I had A LOT of ends to weave in. A. Lotttttt.

Anyway, hope you all like it! Smiley

Did you use a particular pattern or did you just wing it? The shape is wonderful!

Thanks everyone!

Not really, just your basic V neck start and then I just decreased a bit until the waist area then began increasing again c:
