Color Bliss is a great stash-buster, worked top-down and seamless. Color is its defining element: beautiful, happy, joyful color. Use the suggested 8 colors, choose your own favorites, or raid your stash to make this fun and comfortable pullover with plenty of stripes, blocks of color, and a rolled neckline.  Knit in worsted weight in stockinette.

 

Pattern is written without ease added in, so to choose size to make, add your favorite amount of ease (2, 4, 6, or 8 inches or more) to your actual bust measurement.  This new measurement is the size you should make.  Pattern is written for 10 sizes from 36-54 inches (which should be your actual bust + ease measurement).

 

About color and yarn: Pattern includes suggestions and worksheets for creating your own palette and stripe sequence. It also includes the yarns and yardage used in both the green/purple and gray/orange/blue sample sweaters.

 

Needles: US 7 (4.5 mm) for body of sweater; US 6 (4.0 mm) for cuffs.

 

Detailed schematic also included.

Test knit and tech edited.
