When you’re getting ready for a playdate on a chilly day, a cozy and colorful sweater is a must-have. Easel’s self-patterning colorways make bright projects a breeze with its mix of stripes, speckles, and faux Fair Isle all present in one skein. The Peekaboo Pullover is knit sideways, so you can watch the jovial pattern work up into unique vertical stripes as you knit. You’re going to want to make one in every color!

PATTERN NOTES This sweater is knit in one piece – worked sideways from cuff to cuff. It is primarily worked in Stockinette stitch, but features garter stitch edging around the sleeve cuffs, hem, and neckline. All the edging is worked simultaneously with the body of the sweater, so aside from seaming the sleeves and sides, finishing steps are minimal.
