Knitting Pattern in French for a Light Sweater with a deep V neck and a structured pattern – created by stockinette stitch stripes in lace weight yarn and garter stitch stripes in fingering weight yarn – in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL | 5XL.



The V neck sweater with a structured pattern is worked top down with raglan increases in one piece. The pattern is created by alternating stockinette stitch stripes worked in “Mohair Soie” and garter stitch stripes worked in “Mérinos Fingering”. This creates a nice texture and an interesting design.
The yoke is shaped with raglan increases and additionally, there are increases to shape the V neck of the sweater. As soon as the sleeves are separated from the body, the V neck is closed and the sweater is now worked in the round. When the desired length is reached, the body of the sweater is finished with a hem in 1x1 ribbing.
Now the relatively wide sleeves are worked in the structured pattern in the round, until they are long enough to work a bunch of decreases for the balloon-like shape. Then, the cuffs are worked in 1x1 ribbing.
Finally, stitches are picked up along the neckline of the V neck and a collar in 1x1 ribbing is attached to the neckline.

The fit of the sweater is neutral to slightly oversized. If you are in between two sizes, I recommend to knit the smaller size.

The highlight of the sweater is the structured pattern created by stripes in stockinette stitch and garter stitch, which are additionally emphasized by different yarn qualities (lace weight yarn vs. fingering weight yarn). The fit is relatively cropped, the V neck is deep and the sleeves are wide and tighten at the cuffs.
