Notes

I love this so much! Best v neck pattern e v e r and most beloved yarn!

I customized my size which was easy to do. I wanted some positive ease and ended up with 4 inches which was about what I was aiming for.

Also, for a nice fit and since I have a small back, I sometimes decide to add back darts in this way: I divide the back evenly into three sections and place two markers at these spots. Knit to 3 sts before m, k2tog tbl, k 1, sm, k1, k2tog, repeat at the next marker. I usually add them about an inch after joining the front to back (when knitting top-down in-the-round) and make one or two more until the waist. I may or may not add the stitches back in when I begin hip shaping. I decide that as I go because I try it on as I go, every few inches or so.
