Firth is a design built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Firth pattern is written specifically to your choice of gauge and size.

Firth is part of the Winter/Spring 2015 CustomFit Basics Collection.

A basic V-neck sweater ranks at the top of most women’s wardrobe staples. And with CustomFit, yours can suit you perfectly. This version has a nicely deep neckline, 1×1 ribbed edgings, and a classic length. Its long sleeves keep you warm, and though it’s shown here on Lauren in a relaxed fit, yours will look great in all fit choices.

This sample was knit in Quince and Co Lark, an all-American 100% wool that’s soft, sustainable, and that comes in a variety of great colors. I used the color “Iceland”, at a gauge of approximately 5 stitches per inch, and this 38″ (ish) sample used 10 hanks.

(One quick note on yardage in CustomFit patterns - the yardage requirements listed here are based on my preferred gauge for the recommended yarn. And while I’ve given approximate quantities for standard size sweaters, CustomFit will make your pattern in the size and gauge of your choice. It’s pretty tough to give yardage requirements for any possible combination! If you’re not using the recommended yarn, and/or you’re not a standard size, I recommend Hannah Fettig’s amazing app, stashbot, to get a sense of your yardage requirements.)
