Every kid needs to look natty now and then. This V-neck pullover updates the houndstooth lookand can look dressed-up or casual.
First time at stranded knitting? This pattern is for you – it provides full instructions for how to do great-looking color work. Choose the colors shown here or try your own combination. Alternate color suggestions appear on page 2. The sweater is knit from the bottom up, in the round, to the armholes. The front and back are then worked separately. The sleeves are worked in the round from the armhole down. In other words, no seaming!
I am a historian of science, so I name some of my designs for scientific figures from the past. Scottish engineer John Logie Baird (1888-1946) invented the first working television and also built prototypes of the color TV. The houndstooth pattern, like Baird, originated in Scotland and became well known during the interwar period. As it happens, the houndstooth stitch also reminds me of the snow patterns on black-and-white televisions.
