Chevron Cardigan

Knit top-down with raglan shaping, starting at the shoulders/sleeves, this light cardigan uses the sequence of increases and decreases known from knitting a chevron to create a unique shape and fit: increases in the back and fronts, decreases at the sides. Herringbone, Stockinette, and Garter stitch textures create additional interest.

The shoulders are worked in my favorite textured stitch: herringbone. My first contact with this stitch was the Big Herringbone Cowl by Purl Soho, and I’ve been in love with it ever since. I’ve also used it for my Chevron Top.

The yarn-over detail in the back is a little nod to Stephen West. This light cardigan is a great summer garment, especially if you choose a linen- or cotton blend. The larger needle size creates an airy fabric with a beautiful drape. It looks great in a single color with contrasting shoulder patches (as per pattern), or go crazy and make it as colorful as you like.
