Special Notes:
Color It: solid, two, or three – customize your sweater with color! Each color is used on its own row – no floats!
Visualize It: begin with the hem and creating the base triangles. Then work the body in pattern watching the chevrons develop magically as you knit. As you reach the top of the shoulders on the back, you create inverted triangles to fill the chevrons back into a solid shape. A similar method is used on the front neck, except it is done in a few steps to accommodate the lower neckline. While the body works bottom up, the sleeves work top down. These completely seamless additions compliment the design with a smaller version of the triangle graphic down the center of each sleeve.
Motivated by Psalm 90:17.
