Breton stripes combine with stranded knitting in this asymmetrical pullover.

The short-row stranded sections aren't just pretty,
they are used to shape to the neckline and also add a little swirl to the hemline.

TiaTeva is knitted in one piece seamlessly from the top down. Striped areas are worked in the round; some stranded areas are worked flat back and forth, and others are in the round. Small provisional cast-ons are worked at the underarms.
