3-to-2 Any Gauge Sweater
HeartStrings knitting pattern #W40
Use any yarn for this on-the-bias sweater. The 3-to-2 bias shaping in the body of the sweater gives you flattering design and drape. This is a great pattern for variegated yarns or multiple yarns of similar weight knit in easy stripes.
Stockinette stitch short sleeve version in hand-painted cotton
Reverse stockinette long sleeve version in textured silk/wool
A simple 3-step worksheet guides you in determining how much yarn you need and suggested needle sizes for your desired sweater measurements in fingering through bulky weight yarns. Written stitch instructions.
Your sweater begins with a small triangle that also serves as your sample - no need to pre-swatch! If you are satisfied with the look and feel of your beginning triangle, just keep knitting to complete your sweater.
Neckline features a fold-down lapel. Instructions include options for 2 choices of body texture: stockinette or reverse stockinette
texture body, and 3 sleeve styles: sleeveless, short sleeves, or long sleeves.

in Oroville, CA writes about the 3-to-2 Any Gauge summer top she made ...
I just thought I'd email you about my little rave of the 3 to 2 Any Gauge Sweater I made in SR Kertzer's Ranee and Sari. I had to split the difference in gauges for them both to work together, but I just thought I'd share. I think this pattern shows them off beautifully and allows their drape to show off too. The 'button' is Sari crocheted into a button. I can never find buttons I like so I just make 'em out of the yarn I use.
Anyway, just wanted to say I loved working the pattern, easy to follow and a great tool for showing how useful gauge is.
