Simple stripes in an imaginative sweater.

This pattern is knit in one piece to the armholes. After the sleeves are knit and seamed, the hood is picked up and knit, with short row shaping so it won’t fall off. Extra height in the hood is taken in by the ribbing to create poofy cheeks. The buttonband is knit on as you go. Antennae are picked up and knit at the end.
