One Lovely Sweater was designed in order to add a little more interest to my wardrobe. The V-neck design adds versatility as it leaves the neck free (to breathe!) to add a pretty piece of jewelry or a beautiful scarf.

One Lovely Sweater is worked top-down holding together two strands of fingering weight yarn to create a DK/Worsted weight. The weight of this yarn is perfect and gives just the right drape. The yoke is worked flat in stockinette to create the V-neck. It is then joined to knit in the round. The sleeve detail adds a bit of femininity!
