I made this for myself and several of my friends insisted I write up the pattern. So  I’ve  provided 4 sizes that worked well with the cables and Vneck design.*

I have not included BUTTONHOLE INSTRUCTIONS, in the pattern itself although I did add them to my personal project page for those of you that prefer them.
