CAST ON: Sidelines Sweater by Susanne Sommer

Winter has not yet bid us adieu and we still have the itch to cast on a new sweater. New from Susanne Sommer, the Sidelines Sweater has a sideways construction and features a horizontal stripe pattern. A wide hem and cuffs are worked in a traditional, top-down method and offer an opportunity to add a second, contrasting color. This sweater offers mix-and-match sizing with 8 circumference options and calls for 861-2291 yards of DK weight yarn.
