Albers Pullover

As seen in Interweave Knits

My summer uniform is always based on a striped t-shirt. Come to think of it, so is my winter uniform. For Albers, named for the German-born American textile artist, Anni Albers, most famous for her rhythmic and geometric works, I played with the blue and white stripes to accentuate the curves of the body. The intarsia chart leaves no extra ends to be woven in.
