Ivanna Chevron Sweater

Ivanna is the bold sweater that’s sure to make a statement this season. This almost abstract representation of a chevron fabric with one solid V motif is an eye-catcher, while the unique and clever construction of the front panel is likely to engage both intermediate and expert crocheters alike.

      Hey Joanna! Unfortunately, I don’t have a video tutorial for this project. The 23( 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 13, 8) rows after row 24 on the front panel shaping are worked as a pointed chevron shape, you will be starting with a decrease, then working straight single crochets along the first side of the point, working increases on the bottom middle point, working straight single crochets along the second side, then decreasing in the last two stitches of the row.

    Is there a full picture of the sweater? Her arms are blocking most of it.

    Where can we find the Schematic drawing so that we may use the measurements listed as A-H above?
