I've admired the little-girl version on Ravelry, but my little girl is 12, so I'm really glad to see the grown-up version! :) --Bookaholic13 on Ravelry

Alison Makin said...

I have been eyeing off the adult version of playful stripes since it came out and it would be great to have the original in a format other than in a magazine.

Kathy said...

I've wanted to make playful stripes for myself since the pattern was released. I totally think I could boy this up so I could be matchy-matchy with my boy. :) Thank you! I'm bigblueice on Ravelry

Julie Crawford said...

I totally remember the 2011 adult version of playful stripes! It is indeed so much better this time around (the new colours are a lot easier on the eyes, too). I wish I was going to Rhinebeck this year- I was offered a spot with a group to travel down and a rented house, but I have work meeting in Quebec City the same weekend! Stupid work meeting.

Emily Ross said...

Love both of these patterns so much!!! The first time I saw the little one I thought, "I wish I could fit in this!" And now I could!

beth jillette said...

Love the cardigan maybe navy and white for my grandson?

Marta said...

Loved this episode, and I hope to see you and Hannah (with my Coastal Knits book and knitted sweaters!) at Rhinebeck in a couple of weeks. You will be a Rhinebeck fanatic, just like the rest of us. I look forward to it all year long! Thanks for another great giveaway -- I don't have issue having matching sweaters with my daughter. I'll just knit them in different colors. They don't have to be exactly the same in order to match, right?

Elizabeth Hoffman said...

Love the pattern! LizzieH on rav

Resident Squint said...

So happy to hear there's an adult playful stripes! Ever since I completed my toddler daughter's sweater at LYS group, at least 3 others have made the sweater and it inspired the store to offer a class in it. I'd love the grow up version! Theatergrrl on Rav.

therese said...

I have put the required yarn for Playful Stripes in online shopping carts several times but then thought, better wait until I have worked down my stash. If I own the pattern, there will be no excuse!

I recently began my very first cardigan project and though I am pleased with the process and my progress I have temporarily paused my sweater for self (which is part of a KAL), and begun a second cardi for my Dad, who has advanced cancer. I am inspired by your podcast - the well crafted lovely cardi patterns, the supportive tone and the way you include stories from others too. Have a blast at the NY Sheep and Wool event, sounds wonderful!

You are such a talented designer. At the moment I don't have any little cones to knit for but I am definitely interested in the adult version.

I love this sweater combo.
I do not have a daughter myself but I would make this for my cousin and her daughter. I would make this as a reward for her for losing over 250 pounds. I think they would love it

We love matching sweaters, socks, etc in our knitting family!

I enjoyed hearing about your adult version of the Playful Stripes Cardigan. I wish I had saved one of my own epic fails to share with newer knitters. The only way we learn and grow is to risk failing.
