Palette Cleanser by Susanne Sommer (from the designer's notes):
Sometimes you need a blank slate, a fresh start, a Palette Cleanser.
This oversized cropped sweater is such a project for me: a way to clear my mind, restart my creative process, hopefully with less self-doubt and second-guessing, with more knitting and less tinking.
Knit sideways from the center out, this seamless modular sweater is knit in reverse stockinette with stockinette details, ribbed cuffs, a broken-rib border, and an i-cord neckline.
The worsted weight yarn in three lively heathered shades of gray Rauwerk wool creates a rustic, yet velvety soft texture and knits up in no time.
The neutral colors and the fun shape make this a wardrobe staple, but feel free to go wild with colors, or use just one color.
