The Shaded Stripes sweater is an easy to wear, cozy striped sweater with the added interest of self-shading yarn. Reverse stockinette stitch adds even more appeal to the striping sequence. Not only is this project quick for a sweater knit, but it would make a great first-sweater for knitters who haven't yet ventured into sweater-knitting. 

The sweater is knit in pieces from the bottom up and seamed.
