The gently tilting stripes in this retro pullover were inspired by the look of striped fabric cut on the bias. Fiona Ellis experimented with short rows to angle her stripes rather than working separate pieces and joining them. She calls her method of invention “matchmaking.” She plays with tried and true design elements and techniquesin this case stripes and short rowsand “marries” them in a sweater that has a contemporary look. The plain raglan sleeves and styling give the pullover a retro feel and enhance the sporty play of the stripes.
