Pattern Description:

Some people see a knitted dissected frog and say "ew!" Some people end up designing a sweater because it gave them an idea. (Note: I am one of the latter)

Exploded View is based on the principle of, what else? exploded view. Sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees when you're in the middle of knitting a sweater, and I wanted to create a design that would be

* easy to knit

* a good 'transitional' pattern for people coming to the world of sweater knitting from, say, scarf knitting

* a flexible template for you to make your own design decisions
flattering and fun

* a good way to use up stash yarn

Because you're only working on any one section at a time after you've knit the yoke, this sweater knits up fast and can even accommodate different stitch patterns in each panel if you like. Some design ideas are included in the pattern, so don't feel as if you need to be a capital-D Designer in order to truly make this your own. Enjoy!

This design can accommodate literally ANY yarn. The pictured sample used Cascade 109, but even I'm knitting a second one in Cascade 220 right now! Chunky, worsted, aran, DK, even fingering -- if you follow the directions and don't mind a little pattern-adjusting, you can use any yarn!



Sizing / Finished Measurements:
