Product description

The linear architecture of Diller commands attention, breaking the planes of a traditional sweater through its high-low hem and truncated V-neck details. Top-down and seamless, this is an infinitely versatile piece that can be worn front-to-back as well as inside-out. Flattering lines cut geometrically across the top, and simple brioche shaping makes Diller an ideal entry into brioche garments. With a two-toned fabric that wears equally well on either side, wear your wild side out all weekend before flipping back to neutral come Monday morning.

    CONSTRUCTION

    • This sweater is worked circularly from the top down. The collar and yoke are worked first, then the sleeves are separated and put on hold. The body is worked to the hem and then the sleeves are picked up and worked to the cuff.

      • A series of markers labeled with letters A-J are used to denote different shaping points. Please refer to the diagrams in the pattern for more information on marker placement.

    • As written, the collar sits wide on the shoulders. If a narrower collar is preferred use a needle that is two or three sizes smaller than Size A for the first few rounds.

    • When working Brioche Stitch each round works half of the stitches. Two rounds are worked to make one complete “countable” round. Gauge listing lists both the total rounds worked and the countable rounds. The pattern only uses worked rounds, not countable rounds. 

    • This pattern is completely reversible: the V-neck can be worn facing the back or the front and either side of the fabric can be worn facing out. As such, take care to weave in ends invisibly or consider using the Felted Join to join new skeins of yarn. For clarity the pattern refers to the side with a V-neck as the back.
