frogginette - Chuck

Chuck  Sweater

Froginette Knitting Patterns

This practical, unisex crew-neck sweater features a sophisticated and rich chevron motif, which is a nod to the famous zig-zag feature of the “Charlie Brown sweater.  Worked from the top-down entirely seamlessly with raglan sleeves, it is a breeze to knit. The brocade chevron motif is rewarding and quickly becomes intuitive to work.  The neckline is shaped with a few short rows for a more comfortable fit. Once the yoke is completed, stitches are put on hold for the sleeves, then the body of the sweater is knit in the round, and features a chevron motif with twisted stitches. The sleeves are worked in the round.  Please note: there is no chart in this pattern. The instructions for the chevron motif are written only.
