This chic sweater features a textured chevron stitch that seems more complicated than it is. Once you set up the pattern, you’ll be knitting the same repeat so you’ll quickly get the hang of the pattern.

The sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up, and the textured chevrons are created with slipped stitches.

Another unusual feature is the ribbing over the shoulder seams. You pick up stitches along the shoulder edges when you pick up the neck stitches. Button the ribbing closed for a fun, stylish look.
