This is my take on a classic V neck, designed to be a bit roomy, with the V not as low as a classic jumper so it looks good with a t-shirt underneath.

Essentials
1 x 450g cone of Yeoman Yarn’s Tibet MY plus a small amount for optional contrast CY
Ravel Cord
Standard Gauge Knitting Machine, I used a Silver Reed SK580
Optional: 7 pronged adjustable transfer tool, so you can use 5 prongs to do the fully fashioned decreases at the neckline and for the sleeves. It still looks fine using the 3 pronged tool

Gauge
28 Stitches & 40 Rows per 10 cm TD 8 MT measured after washing and drying your sample piece. My Silver Reed TD was at 8. It is very important to check that your tension matches mine

Skills
Basic knowledge of your knitting machine - e-wrap - picking up stitches - casting off loosely.
The way I like to cast off is to work one row at the loosest tension and use a latch tool cast off with a chain stitch between each stitch taken off the machine. There are many methods of creating a looser edge, use the one that you prefer

This pattern has been rigorously tested in each size, by machine knitters with varying skill levels so that you can knit this design with confidence
