Reflected Lines

 

 

 

 

 

 
This design was entirely inspired by colors! As soon as I saw those three skeins together, I knew there will be some stripes. In this case, cool looking blending stripes. Blue blends into yellow and yellow blends into green, resulting in a striping that gives each color its turn to shine.

The cardigan is worked in one piece from top down. Raglan sleeves are worked in the round and the asymmetrical shape of the hem is achieved by short row shaping.
