Route 66 combines a center front chevron panel, ¾ length sleeves and a cowl neck for chic casual comfort. Perfect for cafes, concerts in the park and roadside markets. Route 66 is worked top down with a center front wedge-shaped textured panel and simple stockinette on the rest of the body. The front panel uses simple knits and purls with no cabled stitches. Written in 6 sizes. The center panel directions are both written and charted for the first quarter of the body for initial set-up and orientation. Rounds 31-130 continue down the body as instructed working from the charts for the center panel.
