Differences between Basic V and Devotion: Basic V has a different sleeve shaping and a different cuff but the upper arm circumference remains unchanged. It also has a straight body while Devotion has a gathered hem.

Basic V is a simple raglan pullover with a wide neckline. It is designed with a relaxed fit. It is worked seamlessly from the top down and you can easily adjust the length of both the body and the sleeves. The neckband is worked by picking up stitches along the neckline. It shares the same neckline and raglan shaping with my design Devotion. No short rows are used in the pattern.

This pattern is graded with inclusive sizing in mind, designed to fit actual bust sizes from 76 cm / 30 inches to 168 cm / 66 inches. Measurements are given in both cm and inches.
