Knitted chevron sweater

Chevron heraldry sweater

This cropped sweater is versatile enough to go from casual to evening if you pair it with the right accessories. I love the two shades of blue used in the design, but you could also pair your favorite color with a neutral — red and gray, perhaps? — for a completely different color palette. Designer AllysonD also suggests belting the sweater for a more put-together look.

A loose fit and a cool bamboo yarn make this the ideal knit for summer days. Not crazy about the loose silhouette? Belt it and cinch that waist a bit. You can also save time and frustration when you use a variegated yarn: You’ll get lots of color without having to worry about changing colors!
