About Starring The Difference

Starring The Difference is a wonderfully modern, yet whimsical take on your classic striped cardigan. Worked in three colors, it features a standout yoke that is knit up in your main color and the first contrasting color and transitions into the body with triangles that are both fun to knit and beautiful to look at! The body is then worked with the second contrasting color alongside your main color. Neckband, button band, cuffs and hem create a gorgeous frame for the jogless stripes of yoke and body as they're worked in the main color. Starring The Difference is worked top down with raglan increases so that you can easily customize it to your preferred length.
