The chevron pattern harks back to ancient Greece, and has been adored by designers all over the world ever since, adorning homes and garments everywhere. It’s one of those classic traditional prints that we love, zig zagging across jumpers, cardigans and blankets, and the Speckled Chevron Cardigan from Paintbox Yarns’ Traditional Prints collection is a feat of clever engineering. Knit flat in pieces, this cardi is worked using the Fair Isle technique, with charts for each section.
