Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, basic math

Pattern Description:

Use any yarn for this on-the-bias sweater. The 3-to-2 bias shaping in the body of the sweater gives you flattering design and drape. This is a great pattern for variegated yarns or multiple yarns of similar weight knit in easy stripes.

A simple 3-step worksheet guides you in determining how much yarn you need and suggested needle sizes for your desired sweater measurements in fingering through bulky weight yarns. Written stitch instructions.

Your sweater begins with a small triangle that also serves as your sample - no need to pre-swatch! If you are satisfied with the look and feel of your beginning triangle, just keep knitting to complete your sweater.

Neckline features a fold-down lapel. Instructions include options for 2 choices of body texture: stockinette or reverse stockinette texture body, and 3 sleeve styles: sleeveless, short sleeves, or long sleeves.
