Skills required:  casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, binding off, working twisted stitches.

Construction: This sweater is knit seamlessly in the round from the top down. 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.

The sophisticated and rich chevron motif is a nod to the famous zig-zag feature of the “Charlie Brown sweater." The motif can be omitted and leave the knitter with a great crew neck sweater template that could be personalized.
