Lily Chin teaches a multi-directional sweater construction that can be worked spontaneously without much pre-planning.

This multi-directional garment is formulaic and requires no particular pattern. Each section builds on the previous one. Start with a front and back panel, and pick up to build the sides up sideways. Work until it is wide enough. Try it on every step of the way to ensure fit. Continue with sleeves, if desired. Work the sleeves until they are long enough. Do different patterned stitches in each section without worrying about matching gauges. Use up scrap yarn and oddments in the process. From the school of “divide and conquer” or one bite at a time, this construction is so addictive and spontaneous, and fun with not a whole lot of preplanning. You’ll find yourself working several at a time!

Lily M. Chin is an internationally famous knitter and crocheter who has worked in the yarn industry for more than 30 years as a designer, instructor, and author of 8 books on knitting and crochet.

Skill Level: Advanced-Beginner to Intermediate

With worsted wt. or chunky yarn and appropriate needles, make 2 pieces (they do not have to be identical in pattern or color). One is about 2” wide x 3” tall, the other is also 2” wide but 3 1/2 or 4” tall (or 1/2 to 1” taller than the other). Bind off both.

Get a working gauge in Stockinette st with the yarn you will be knitting with.

1. Another color or 2 of the same wt yarn as the homework, you only need about 30 yards of each color, including those leftover from the homework.
