Are your knitting needles ready to cast on your next piece of wearable Westknits art? Get ready to knit the wonderfully simple yet stunning Slippy V Sweater! The Slippy V Sweater is a gorgeously textured top-down sweater that knits up beautifully in one solid main color and one self-striping contrast color of fingering weight yarn. You alternate between bands of stockinette stitch and slipped stitches to create a stunningly intricate fabric. It's such a relaxing knit and I'm obsessed with the beautiful slip stitch details that highlight the beauty of self-striping yarns. The length of the yoke, body and sleeves of the sweater are easily customizable by knitting more or fewer rounds, so you can really make the sweater your own and make it an essential piece in your hand knit collection. This pattern is designed for fingering weight yarn. It's a fluid and lightweight layering piece for spring.
I knit my Slippy V Sweater in the wonderfully soft West Wool Bicycle and infinitely playful Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy and I love the way that the simple stockinette stitches contrast the fun color changes of the self-striping yarn. Check out all of the gorgeous colors of West Wool and Schoppel Wolle that are currently available at Stephen & Penelope. Choose your favorite color combination - whether that's floral pinks or oceanic blues - and cast on the Slippy V Sweater!
