Knitting Pattern in English for a fluffy sweater with slight drop shoulders and a deep, reversible V-neck in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL.
The sweater is knitted in stockinette stitch top down: First, the right and the left front part are worked separately to shape the round neck. After joining both halves, the front part is worked with increases to shape the armholes. Afterwards, the right
and the left back part are worked separately too – with increases on both sides to shape the armholes and the V-Neck. As soon as the required number of stitches is
reached, the back parts and the front part are joined under the armpits, but they are still worked back and forth in rows to shape the V-Neck. As soon as the V-neck is closed, the body of the sweater is worked in rounds in stockinette and finished with a hem in 2x2 ribbing. Now, stitches for the sleeves are picked up along the armholes. First, the sleeves are worked with German Short Rows for a better shaping. Then they are knitted in rounds with some decreases for a slight shaping of the straight sleeves. The sleeves are then finished with a cuff in 2x2 ribbing too.
Last but not least, the collar around the V-neck is worked. Therefore, stitches are picked up along the neckline and worked in 2x2 ribbing. Decorative decreases are worked to shape the tip of the V-neck.
The fit of the sweater is loose and slightly oversized. The body and the sleeves are straight and quite cropped to create a modern look. The V-Neck is quite deep, but as the pattern is reversible, you can wear the V-neck as the front or as the back part.
