This practical, unisex crew-neck sweater features a sophisticated and rich chevron motif, which is a nod to the famous zig-zag feature of the “Charlie Brown sweater.” Worked from the top-down entirely seamlessly with raglan sleeves, it is a breeze to knit. The brocade chevron motif is rewarding and quickly becomes intuitive to work. The motif can be omitted and leave the knitter with a great crew neck sweater template that could be personalized.
Construction: This sweater is knit seamlessly in the round from the top down. The neckline is shaped with a few short rows for a more comfortable fit. Once the yoke is completed, stitches are put on hold for the sleeves, then the body of the sweater is knit in the round, and features a chevron motif with twisted stitches. The sleeves are worked in the round. Please note: there is no chart in this pattern. The instructions for the chevron motif are written only.
Skills Required: Casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, binding off, working twisted stitches, working short rows.
