Chevron Sweater

The chevron sweater is finished!

Chevron SweaterThe design for the chevron sweater appears in Erika Knight’s Glamour Knits pages 55-57.  This book contains “15 sensuous designs inspired by Hollywood sirens.”

The directions are pretty straight forward with a twist when attaching the sleeves to the yoke.   I truly enjoyed knitting this sweater, and look forward to wearing it with my favorite pair of jeans.

It’s no secret how I feel about the Missoni brand, especially Missoni yarn.  Look what I found at my local yarn shop.
