Random Stripes PDF
Random Stripes from Grace Akhrem is a striped, long-sleeve, boat neck pullover sweater. The pattern mixes horizontal and vertical stripes for a very bold, graphic effect. A note from the designer: In the pictured version of this pattern I used the MC as the dominant color and striped randomly every time I felt like changing color. The stripe sequence of this pattern is not given- as the knitter you have the freedom to customize and design the width and frequency of your stripes.
