Here's Marianne's answer to the age-old question, "How do I make myself a sweater out of hand-dyed yarn, when horizontal stripes aren't flattering to me?"

Less obvious in the photo are her answers to such questions as, "How do I make a form-fitting sweater when I'm knitting from side to side?" and, "Is it true that I'm not just wider across the front than across the back, but longer?"

Her pattern will be forthcoming in the Rosie Knits series, with instructions for customizing the fit (of course).

The sweater is lovely and I'm looking forward to the instructional series. There was a pattern for a shaped, side to side jacket in an old Anny Blatt magazine. I did the back and then decided on an alternate pattern for the yarn I was using. Always meant to revisit the pattern, but never go around to it.

Beautiful yarn and sweater!

I hope you will let us know when this pattern is available- it is really pretty.
