Alicia Plummer and Melissa Schaschwary do stripes (easy ones) in Kestrel. Above is Alicia’s Adam’s Multi-Way Wrap in colors Cove and Sans. It’s perfect summer knitting; Alicia says, it’s ‘brainless.’ But it’s not boring, placed stripes and bias construction (makes good drape) make it interesting.
Melissa’s swingy top North Fork (below) is knitted from the top down. The back is shaped with a few short rows and side slits at the hem keep it relaxed in fit around the hips. Colors from the top down are Sand, Senza, and Porpoise.
