Notes: Nimue begins at the lower back edge. After knitting the back and casting off centre sts to form the back neck, two narrow pieces are knit separately with no shaping. Rejoining these two halves after desired depth is reached forms a V-neckline. Knit until front matches length of back to complete main body. Sleeves grow perpendicularly from the body with picked up stitches that decrease, slowly at first and then with increasing speed.
