I’ve had an idea

I really like crossover tops, I think they are flattering with the diagonal lines.  I’ve decided I want to make one with the fronts knitted on the bias so the lines of the knitting are on the diagonal as well.

The sleeves and back will be knitted bottom to top, only the front will be bias knit.

The difficulty with this plan is working out the rates of increase/decrease to get the correct angles.  The front would need to be knitted like this:

The stitch count and row count are therefore on a different angle to the measurements for the width and length so everything has to be calculated and then converted into stitch counts.

Here is the diagram of the full crossover:

Ribbed, Raglan 3/4 length sleeves.
