I just sent this correction to my layout person, so I’ll get the revised pdf to everyone shortly. THANKS!

For a few months, not a day went by when I was not thinking about chevrons and working toward my goal of a full-on chevron sweater that looks good on a wide range of figures and lends itself to all manner of color combinations, from subtle ombre to stark contrast. Here’s the result. Enjoy!

I wanted to make a lightweight cardigan that used an allover large chevron pattern in several colors; I wanted this to be the sort of cardigan you could wear with everything and the sort of pattern that you could make multiple times, using different yarn and color combinations.

Yarn requirements!

890 (1040, 1320, 1530, 1830) yds fingering weight yarn:
260 (300, 380, 440, 530) yds in A;
240 (280, 360, 420, 500) yds in B;
200 (230, 290, 340, 400) yds in C;
90 (230, 290, 330, 400) yds in D.

Note: The pattern includes instructions for an elbow-length sleeve version and a three-quarter-length sleeve version. Yardage given is for the three-quarter-length sleeve version. The elbow-length sleeve version requires 40 fewer yards of B.
