The Chubasco Sweater


The Chubasco Sweater

"The Chubasco Sweater is inspired by unusual symmetry, in this case by the unexpectedness of the weather, how the sky is clear one moment, and the next, the skies are falling and everything is chaos. By combining the intricate Crossed Loops stitch and the mindlessness of the Reverse Stockinette stitch, the Chubasco sweater is and unexpected delight to knit, just like that unexpected rain on a clear Spring day. The Chubasco sweater features a hi-low, standard-fitting, drop shoulder silhouette, with straight sleeves and a mock turtle neck. It’s worked flat in 4 pieces (front, back and sleeves) bottom-up, and is then seamed together. After the back and front are joined, stitches are picked to create the turtle neck. This pattern includes instructions for waist, hip and tunic lengths for both the front and back pieces, so you can combine them as you prefer. There are six options to combine the different lengths: Option 1: cropped front and hip-length back. Option 2: cropped front and back. Option 3: hip-length front and back. Option 4: tunic-length front and back. Option 5: cropped front and tunic-length back. Option 6: hip-length front and tunic-length back. "
