Pattern Description:

This lightweight, one-piece, top-down
sweater with 3/4 length sleeves is worked in Stocking stitch with rolled hem, cuffs, and V-neck.

The body is slightly flared towards the hem which is worked with a 10 stitch left- and right-slant increase panel down each side.

Optional cap shaping at the top of the sleeves is worked with short rows, giving the shoulders a more tailored look; without short rows this pattern is easy.

Val Love on

I can't remember when I couldn't knit, crochet or sew. I am inspired by yarn I find, trends I see on the street, window shopping in Manhattan and suggestions from fellow knitters and crocheters. My goal is to create stylish patterns that are easy to wear, and to find the simplest way to construct them.
