I’ve been fascinated with architectural lines lately and wanted to create a sweater that incorporated horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines that meet, alter course, and lure the eye into a mesmerizing pattern. The asymmetrical design on body and sleeves is worked in the round from the bottom up, then worked flat at the armholes. The diagonal lines are created with increases and decreases, then blocking exaggerates the diagonals into their proper place.
