Coiled Magenta

This sweater is a little bit magical; the end product looks complex and difficult to work but it’s an intuitive, fun sweater to knit! This sweater is best knit oversized and allowed to drape on the body. It’s worked in the round from the bottom up, and all the stripes are worked as reverse stockinette helical stripes, which create a seamless join. The different colour panels along the bottom are created using short rows stacked on top of each other.
