Chevron stripes 3 season sweater
The pattern is worked in the round from the top down so it is easy to try it on as you go and acheive a correct fit. Pattern includes decrease rows so that you can fit the sweater to your waist (pattern is designed to be a close fit with negative ease).
Yardage is for the 36” size. Other sizes have not been tested (if you make an alternate size I would love feedback)!
I used 4x50g cream, 2x50g purple and 2x50g navy, with plenty of leftovers of the last 3 balls for my stripy 36” sweater.
Original pattern contains error in round 3. This was corrected on 25th May 2013. Round 3 should read:
Round 3: ch 3 (counts as a dc), sk 2 sts, dc, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) into ch sp, dc, sk 2 sts, 2dc, (dc, ch2,dc) into ch sp, 2dc, rep from around omitting last dc, sl-st into 1st ch to join, 2 sl sts. ch3, turn. (120, 128, 136, 144, 152, 160 sts)
Larger sizes may wish to alter the sleeves to be wider; there is a link a pattern for doing this on the pattern and above.
