Jenga for Adults
This design began as a child’s pullover that all the grownups wanted to wear! With its relaxed, boxy silhouette and 3/4 length sleeves, this pullover will easily find a place in your everyday wardrobe.
The intarsia block design is a great framework for playing with color. While I used a single color of a slow-shading yarn for all the blocks, you can easily make each block a different color. Make it a stash-buster and use your worsted weight leftovers!
