This pattern is digital and available in English and Polish.

The charm of this sweater lies in its textures and simple shape. A mash-up of few fitting stitch patterns gives it an original look, and its unusual construction triggers the imagination and lets you try something new. I am sure you will look great in it.

Twill and Plain is unusually constructed, one could say it is worked in three different ways – from the side, a bit bottom-up and definitely top-down. It is simpler than it sounds! You just have to prepare well. Swatch, or more adequately, swatches, are crucial to enjoy a mix of one plain and two wonderfully structural patterns in one sweater.
Twill and Plain is mostly seamless, but two seams on the sides are necessary, as they play a big role in the finished garment. Thanks to them, the sweater nicely keeps its shape!

Gauge:
Make two swatches. A part of the sweater is made from the side, so the right gauge is crucial to achieve the desired effect and to keep correct proportions:

Chevron st: 29 sts x 60 rows – 10 cm x 10 cm 4” x 4” on 4 mm US 6 needles, after blocking.
Stockinette st: 28 sts x 34 rows – 10 cm x 10 cm 4” x 4” on 3 mm US 2.5 needles, after blocking.

Level: intermediate

This is a very well written pattern. I love the challenge it represented: learning all these new techniques, and paying close watch to the gauge. I love the result!

Wow, this construction is interesting, and the end result is beautiful. While you have to be meticulous during the first three sections (chevron panel, over the shoulder, and back), after you get those measurements to match up, the rest is pretty simple and easy to do. I really loved the seaming method for the hems and collar, and might use it on other projects.

I’m sooo in love with my Twill and Plain sweater that I don’t wanna take it off.

I will not lie, this one took me forever. But I have never made such a meticulously designed, and perfect garment. It fits perfectly, and is so incredibly comfortable. I honestly feel a bit regal wearing it, and I might live in it now.
