Beautiful Projects - Stripes

Stripes are awesome. Whether its an intentional part of a design or a sneaky fix if you run out of yarn, there are endless possibilities to use them in your knitting. A blog post with our favourite projects using stripes could have been a very, very long one, so for today I've just picked a few.

This lovely sweater is one of those projects that shows exactly what the Blank Canvas design is perfect for — using it as a starting point to create something really unique. The way the stripes have been worked by sharondoubleknit are so effective. I'd love this in my wardrobe!

Adding a stripey sweater to Elijah is a really popular mod, and when it makes a little elephant this cute its easy to understand why! This little Elijah was knit by Emily Medley.

This amazing Blank Canvas was a fun project to watch take shape on instagram. And the finished sweater is just as fun, and beautiful! cleverknits worked it up as a sample in some of her own yarn, and you can read more about it on her blog.

Estella is one of my favourite hat designs, it has the perfect amount of slouch! This lovely version was knit by chantelaine, and it looks like her dog approves...
