Side Hustle Light by Shanalines Designs | Choose your favorite 3 colors of fingering weight yarn for this side-to-side knit! I designed this pattern in collaboration with Lauren from agirlandherwool. Use 2 colors of yarn for alternating stripes of garter and stockinette stitch, and add Color 3 for garter stitch short row sections wedged between the stripes—the SIDE HUSTLE counterpoint to the regular stripes, if you will. Use temporary closures to change the style into a poncho or double loop cowl.
