I was contemplating a serious problem earlier this year: how can I make a proper winter sweater with no lace, no cotton, no nothing that I tend to favor?
As I was browsing through books and most of the internet for ideas, I was struck by an amazing idea: Of course, I can make it with chevrons!
(I know, I know, what a surprise…)
But stick with me because this sweater is all about texture.
Knit with a Malabrigo’s worsted weight wool, the textured focus means slipped stitches to create a beautiful chevron wave. It means overlapped ribbing at the shoulder. I even added little buttons!
Check out my video, I chat all about it. Don’t forget to add it to your faves and queue on ravelry here.
This sweater is published in Cast On’s fall 2016 issue. You can find more information about the issue and, if you prefer, purchase a digital copy here.
