A boxy sweater is such a wardrobe staple, you can’t ever have enough!
Boxy Chevrons features skinny three-quarter length sleeves that are worked flat from neck to cuff in a large chevron pattern with gradient textural stripes.
Chose between sleeves with a straight cuff (pictured in the gray sample) using short-rows or with a diagonal/chevron finish (pictured in the pink sample).
The extra wide body with a large v-neck is then picked up from the sleeves and knit down in the round. Short-Row shaping gives this lightweight sweater a flattering drape.
The sweater is slightly longer in the back and ends in a diagonally ribbed hem.
With this fun modular construction, you won’t ever be stuck on sleeve island again!
