Pattern Description:

Description:
-This oversized tunic length sweater features a v-neckline echoed by subtle chevrons drawing the eyes downward, creating slimming lines. The ribbed stitching on the hem is repeated in long cuffs, emphasizing the vertical lines in the chevrons.

Details:
-The front, back, neckline and sleeves are knit in two simple pieces by slipping stitches to a holder and working one arm/shoulder at a time. By only having two pieces to sew together, extraneous finishing is eliminated. Stitches are picked up around the sleeve circumference for long ribbed cuffs, and a variation for short cuffs is included in the instructions.

-The chevrons are worked in a drop stitch lace pattern out from the center. The four chevrons-two drop stitch and two solid-are calculated specifically for each sweater size to maintain balance and simplicity; what you see in the photo is what you get.

RedHerringKnits on craftsy.com

Red Herring Knits is the culmination of the idea that when a knitter creates a sweater or other knit design, the tangible process involving yarn and needles is a diversion from what is actually happening.

Every design begins with a concept; an idea of how it should look, fit feel. What thoughts and emotions it should evoke.

This leads to a technical evaluation. How do the sleeves fit into ...
