The charm of this sweater lies in its textures and simple shape. A mash-up of few fitting stitch patterns gives it an original look, and its unusual construction triggers the imagination and lets you try something new. I am sure you will look great in it.

Twill and Plain is unusually constructed, one could say it is worked in three different ways – from the side, a bit bottom-up and definitely top-down. It is simpler than it sounds! You just have to prepare well. Swatch, or more adequately, swatches, are crucial to enjoy a mix of one plain and two wonderfully structural patterns in one sweater.
Twill and Plain is mostly seamless, but two seams on the sides are necessary, as they play a big role in the finished garment. Thanks to them, the sweater nicely keeps its shape!

Sweater circumference in bust:
88 (96, 104, 112) [120, 128, 136] cm
34.6 (37.8, 41, 44) [47.25, 50.4, 53.5]“
Suggested ease: 6-8 cm / 2.4-3.15”
If you hesitate between two sizes and are going for the look from my pictures, pick the smaller one.

Chmurka Goat on the Boat, about:
1260 (1360, 1540, 1680) [1780, 1880, 1960] meters
1378 (1487, 1684, 1837) [1946, 2056, 2143] yards

Make two swatches. A part of the sweater is made from the side, so the right gauge is crucial to achieve the desired effect and to keep correct proportions:

Chevron st: 29 sts x 60 rows – 10 cm x 10 cm [4” x 4”] on 4 mm needles, after blocking.

Stockinette st: 28 sts x 34 rows - 10 cm x 10 cm [4” x 4”] on 3 mm needles, after blocking.
