Twill and Plain sweater
The charm of this sweater lies in its textures and simple shape. A mash-up of few fitting stitch patterns gives it an original look, and its unusual construction triggers the imagination and lets you try something new. I am sure you will look great in it.
Twill and Plain is unusually constructed, one could say it is worked in three different ways – from the side, a bit bottom-up and definitely top-down. It is simpler than it sounds! You just have to prepare well. Swatch, or more adequately, swatches, are crucial to enjoy a mix of one plain and two wonderfully structural patterns in one sweater.
The pattern contains detailed instructions for making the sweater in 7 sizes and two language versions – Polish and English.

If you hesitate between two sizes and are going for the look from my pictures, pick the smaller one.

Scrap yarn and stitch holder
Make two swatches. A part of the sweater is made from the side, so the right gauge is crucial to achieve the desired effect and to keep correct proportions:
Chevron st: 29 sts x 60 rows – 10 cm x 10 cm 4” x 4” on 4 mm needles, after blocking.
Stockinette st: 28 sts x 34 rows - 10 cm x 10 cm 4” x 4” on 3 mm needles, after blocking.
