Product description

“I love chevrons! I cannot get enough. I particularly love how they distort a seemingly straightforward row of knitting into spectacular peaks and valleys. Pair a chevron with the humble stripe and boom! My knitter’s heart beats a little faster.
Taking into account that chevrons don’t make a rectangular shape on their own, I have helped them out by filling in the corners. This creates a few extra pieces to knit to make a shape that resembles a sweater, but the end result is a garment that is interesting to knit. Interesting to knit while being all knit! An easy exchange to make for a few seams to sew. Enjoy! “ – Grace Anna Farrow

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The pullover is worked in a modular fashion, creating geometric shapes and picking up stitches from them, and shaping the fabric through increases and decreases. The front and back pieces are begun with two corner triangles at the base of the garment. When the corner triangles are complete, work continues from the hypotenuses of those triangles in a chevron shape, and the piece is given a rectangular shape across the base by decreasing at the center and increasing at the sides of the chevron. When the piece is long enough to the base of the armholes, the live stitches are placed on hold and the hem is worked by picking up stitches from the legs of the corner triangles and working downward. The sleeves are also begun with two corner triangles, and continued with a center chevron, as for the body. The shaping of the sleeve triangles leaves a void at the cuff edge which is completed with a filler triangle, before picking up stitches for the cuff and working downward. The front and back yokes are worked from stitches held from the body and each half of the sleeves, and shaped with decreases both at the sides and at the center. The sides of the front and back yokes are then sewn together. The sleeve and side seams are sewn, and gussets are inserted in the underarms to provide wearing ease.
