Be Mine Striped Sweater Pattern
The Be Mine sweater is great for anyone who wants to try knitting a sweater for the first time or who loves a quick knit. In this version of the pattern, you have to option to mix in one of our mini skein sampler kits to make this STRIPED! We love mixing our yarns together to give them an artistic, mixed material feeling. This sweater is that idea at it's best! In the dark blue sample shown here we've mixed 3 skeins of Spun Cloud with 1 mini sampler kit in Foggy Blue. The other two samples shown are a mix of many of our yarns knit all together, which you could also do. In those sweaters we've mixed these yarns together: Cast Away, Spun Cloud, Sister, Daisy Chain, Gypsy Garden and Sister.
This sweater comes in 2 length options - cropped (16" body length) and long (22" body length) and is knit sideways! There are just 2 seams - all along the underarm and side seam.
