Introduction

This chevron inspired sweater is worked from the top down making it easy to try on as you go.  The pattern includes instructions for adjusting the fit; e.g. to nip in the waist.

The design is a little lacy, and made from merino wool the sweater is perfect for transitional weather.  It also has a lot of stretch, which makes it nice and comfortable to wear!
