Use any yarn knit at a suitable gauge for this on-the-bias sweater top. The 3-to-2 bias shaping in the body of the sweater gives extra design and drape. A great pattern for variegated yarns or multiple yarns of similar weight knit in easy stripes.
Your sweater begins with a small triangle that also serves as your sample - no need to pre-swatch! If you are satisfied with the look and feel of your beginning triangle, just keep knitting to complete your sweater.
Neckline features a fold-down lapel. Options include stockinette or reverse stockinette texture, and sleeve styles in sleeveless, short, or long. (shown in stockinette, sleeveless version)
A simple 3-step worksheet guides you in determining how much yarn you need and suggested needle sizes for your desired sweater measurements in fingering through bulky weight yarns.
