Bright Side Up

 

 

 

 

 

 
I often buy a little more yarn than needed when starting a new project and that leaves me with an extra skein or two after I finish. I think I’m not alone in this! The good news is, since we all have a certain taste in color and yarn weight, those extra skeins go surprisingly well together.

This striped sweater makes a perfect stashbusting project. It features 2-round stripes in 5 colors, asymmetrical collar and extra long sleeves with thumb holes. The sleeves can also be worn with cuffs folded up, which turns them into regular length sleeves.
