Yes, horizontal stripes can flatter you! It's all a matter of balance. We've shortened the sleeves and added a bold solid-colored cowlneck and a surprise micro-stripe pattern on the back. It all adds up to a striking new take on stripes.
One of my favorite things about Ultra Alpaca is that the color range is so large. As we all know, this can make deciding on a colorway somewhat daunting. While I adore the color combination Norah chose for Rayures (it reminds me of spiced hot cocoa), she also put together 8
alternate colorways, shown below. She combined heathered and solid shades in tonally related pairs for an effect that is lively and rich. The only hard part is picking one to knit!
