Easy V by Cailin Hunter

June 07, 2022

Our pattern spotlight for the month of June is the gorgeous Easy V by Caitlin Hunter.  If you've never attempted colourwork before but are keen to try it, then this pattern will be perfect for you.  Of course, more experienced colourwork knitters will find this a very relaxing project. Easy V is knit top down, beginning with a subtle v-neck that transitions into the colourwork yoke.  From there, it's just easy stockinette.  If you are more experienced you could easily shorten the sleeves into a 3/4 length, or even make it into a tee.

Our Cushy DK would be perfect for this sweater.  We have put together a few colour combo ideas.  See below for sizing and yardage requirements.
