This fabulous and warm sweater will make you stand out among your friends. It has big windowpane checks, filled in just where you need to look a little slimmer or where you might lean on a table and not want it to smudge! The big checks make it really fashionable and graphic. It has clever details like a provisional CO for a smooth edge, contiguous shoulder shaping, invisible neck bands, ‘curved’ sleeves for a quirky fashion twist and still remains comfortable and easy to wear.

The Designer: Bo’s been knitting since she was taught in elementary school, but her knitting only really took off when she found Ravelry. She loves designing classics with a twist, and has an ongoing love affair with stripes, checks/plaids/ginghams and finding the perfect flower print. She’s still trying to find a way to combine all three obsessions in one sweater… She loves fashion and always instills a sense of current trend in her knitwear. You can find her as boknits on Ravelry and bofashion on Pinterest. For questions about this pattern please contact Boadicea Binnerts at firstname.lastname@example.orgPin It
