Divergentis a graphic oversized drop-shoulder pullover designed to look great on all body shapes and sizes. Ribbing along the split hem begins to diverge along the center line to form a chevron panel on both the front and back of the sweater through simple twisted stitches which can be achieved without a cable needle. The sleeves also begin with ribbing that transforms into a half brioche stitch to create bold vertical lines that meet the shoulder of the sweater at the upper arm.
This sweater is knit in flat pieces from the bottom up and seamed together making it a great sweater for knitters of all skill levels. The instructions are detailed for all sizes and an accompanying schematic shows the knitter the exact dimensions to block all pieces to before seaming. Additionally, I have created video tutorials for the Right Twist (RT) and Left Twist (LT) stitches which may be new to some knitters.
This sweater is intended to be worn with 8-10 inches of positive ease for an oversized fit. To calculate the size sweater you should knit for yourself, measure your chest circumference and pick a size that is 8-10 inches larger than that measurement.
