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.
Your sweater begins with a small triangle that also serves as your swatch. There is 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. The neckline features a fold-down lapel. Instructions include options for 2 choices of body texture: stockinette or reverse stockinette; and 3 sleeve styles: sleeveless, short sleeves or long sleeves.
