This short sleeve v-neck sweater is my son’s first choice when getting dressed. It’s fitted without being tight and so soft when made with Lion Brand Jeans yarn. It’s his favorite shirt to wear morning, noon and night!

The v-neck is a high neck intended for an active boy, but looks great on all sizes. The set in sleeves alleviate some of the bulk at the sleeves allowing for a roomy and comfortable fit. With 3 sleeve options, you’re set no matter the weather!

This sweater pattern is easy and includes lots of pictures, plus links to video tutorials for the various parts of the sweater.
