Knit using Kelbourne Woolens stunning 100% cotton yarn, Skipper, Piper is a perfect easy first sweater for a newer knitter, or a great nearly mindless project for when you don’t want to have to pay too much attention.
It’s Courtney’s kind of project! Bonus, at the end you have a super cute summery tee shirt, and no one has to know that it was so simple to make.
The sample shown is a 48.75” (124 cm), worn with 9” (23 cm) of positive ease. Due to the nature of the construction, the neck opening width (and overall neck circumference) may be modified depending on your personal preference; for a narrower neck opening, bind off more stitches at the shoulders, for a wider neck opening, bind off fewer.
As with the first two patterns in the Skipper Collection, Catalina, and Ketch, you’ll notice we did something a little different with this shoot. Since we only ever design things we’d happily wear, it was a no brainer to finally put ourselves in front of the camera this time around to show you more of our core styles and personalities. Each design was photographed on the designer, with two different outfits – a “real-life” Style It, if you will. While we’re not changing our day jobs any time soon, we had a lot of fun with the shoot and hope you enjoy it!
