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.)

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
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.
