From Knitty:
This sweater incorporates some of my very favorite design aspects: a belted waist, a loose, drapey skirt, a hem, and a V. However, the V is not in the front this time, but rather, in the back! I’ve always loved V-neck sweaters, but I find they’re not always as warm as I’d like—at least, not with the V in the front. So, this idea came to me, and I thought “hey, why not. Let’s try it!”. As the drawing and swatch took shape, I knew I was falling in love! And with the cold cold New England -weather ahead, I just I had to knit this sweater!
