Stripey Sleeve Bolero - lightweight and easygoing. I usually throw mine on over a little tee shirt or tank top and jeans.

I really like these sleeves, which are in the same Earth and Sky colorway that I designed for my pueblo stole. Actually, any of the pueblo stole colors would work for this sweater ... with raisin as the bodice in the autumn colorway...twig for the primavera...fir for December.

One more thing about the sleeves, if you cross your arms in front of you - the stripes match up!

The sweater's mostly stockinette, with garter trim all around. darts front and back. I've always fastened mine with a little pin or brooch, but a couple of well-placed buttons would work, so instructions include that option as well.

cable decreases - always nice
