Simple Summer Tweed Top Down V-Neck
A very basic top down raglan with almost no seaming required. Includes sizing / shaping for both men and women, and (despite its name) a crew-neck variation as well. It is designed to be a casual, loose fit, but could easily be made more fitted by increasing the waist shaping rows and choosing a size that fits more closely. The neck trim can also be left off for a more open v-neck.
Suitable for a knitter with some experience. Please review the pattern before you start (it’s free!!). While the sweater is simple, you may not find the instructions simple, as they are quite basic, so if you have never made a top down raglan before, you may need to find a tutorial first to help visualize the raglan increases.
A separate sheet with the finished measurements in inches is provided compliments of Yvonne.
