    Details

    Jane is a fun, striped, retro-style sweater that was inspired by the oversized pullovers from 90s fashion magazines. You can stay with the same color palette of striping that is shown, or choose your own color scheme. 
    This is a great way to stash bust leftover yarn from other projects!
    This sweater is knit from the bottom up in the round, then the back and 
    front are split for armhole shaping. The back and front are then worked 
    separately and seamed at the shoulders. 
    Choose a size that is 6-8”/15-20cm larger than your chest measurement. 
    Model shown is wearing 42”/107cm on 34”/86cm chest circumference.
