Side by Side

Side by Side is a sideways knit sweater with a seamless modular construction and mix & match sizing. Customize your size by combining any circumference, length, and neckline option!

Traveling stitches form an all-over chevron design on a reverse stockinette background. Wide bands of ribbing anchor the design, the doubled cuffs, and neckline ribbing add a gentle hug.

The sweater is knit in DK weight yarn from the center to the cuffs. Afterward, the ribbed hem and neckline are added.

The written pattern has extensive video tutorials accompanying every section and technique used in the pattern: https://www.sosu.at/sidebyside-tutorials

(The sweater was originally designed for the iKnit7 Spring KAL 2022.)

DETAILS

Mix & Match Sizing

Customize your size by combining any of the 8 circumferences, 4 lengths, and 3 neckline options:

Circumferences: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)[6, 7, 8]
Finished Body/Bust Circumference:
96 (107, 117, 128, 136)[149, 157, 168] cm
38 (42, 46, 50 ½, 53 ½)[58 ½, 62, 66]“

Pick a size that is about 10-15 cm / 4-6” wider than your bust circumference (body measurement); less ease will result in a tighter-fitting sweater, more ease will result in a more oversized sweater. As the sweater has a straight fit without any waist shaping, the circumference is the same at the bust and hips.

Lengths: a (b, c, d)
Total Length (in the center of the back):
52 (61, 70, 79) cm
20 ½ (24, 27 ½, 31)“

Pick a length from cropped to tunic length. You can base the length on a body measurement (start at the back of the neck and measure down the center back to where you want your sweater to end) or by measuring your favorite sweater.

Neckline: crew / rounded / v-neck
Neck Circumference:
45 / 58 / 62 cm
17 ½ / 23 / 24 ½“

Chose between a narrow crew neck, a wider rounded neckline, or a gentle v-neck that follows the angle of the chevron pattern.

1-2 colors of DK weight yarn

On a personal note, I know publishing a knitting pattern when the world is in shambles feels… off?… But honestly, knitting is the only thing that keeps me functioning most days (along with cat & pup cuddles and long walks), and I worked really really hard at this and I’m super proud of this design, so I’m just going to go ahead and publish it, while the world explodes around us, women’s (and other persons’ with an uterus) bodily autonomy is eroded, LGBTIQ+ lives are attacked, there is still a war in Europe and the world heats up more and more each day and no change is in sight. I truly hope this brings some joy!
Finished! The Side by Side Sweater KAL with sosuknits is complete. This just needs a gentle block still, but I'm so pleased with how it came out.

Tidigare i somras beställde jag #dererumnaturacandide från #makeri14 - min första order därifrån. Trevligt och supersnabbt! Och när jag behövde ett nystan till kom det lika snabbt det - tack makeri14 !
Så nu kan min #sidebysidesweater av #sosuknits få en högerarm också.
Less than a week until the start of the #iKnit7SideBySideKAL and I’m getting both nervous and excited!

I can’t wait to share this design with you and guide you through the sideways constructions and all the fun techniques in this pattern. 

I’m literally making a tutorial for each and every single technique involved, from cast-on to bind-off.

There will be in-depth tutorials for each section to make sure even beginners can easily follow along, as well as quick tips for the more experienced knitters and to refresh the memory.

If you’re already in the swatching stage, check out the tutorial for the traveling stitches on my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/c/sosuknits.

There’s still time to grab a ticket and join in. Just go to www.iknit7.com for all the info!
