Stripes and pools…

… not swimming pools, mind you, but color pools as you may have guessed! Well, stripes and color pools are the main features of this top-down raglan sweater that I knit for myself out of two super soft merino yarns: a deep dark green Abuelita and and a rainbow colorway by TreLiz (actually both yarns were provided by Lise, when she decided to de-stash and make room in her studio).


I loved both colorways so much, I simply had to make something out of those two combined… one-row stripes were the answer for the body of the sweater and random colorwork for the sleeves (you know how I …hate knitting sleeves, well, this trick worked,  I didn’t lose my interest and  got to knit them quickly) …

I now need a name for this and thought I maybe turn to you and ask for your help: what if I give you three names and you tell me which one sounds best to you? I am thinking of

a. Striper Sweater

b. Pool the Stripes

c. Striping Pools
