FO! Easy V by Caitlin Hunter

July 06, 2022

We didn't plan to shine the spotlight on the same pattern twice, BUT, we've had so many colour-idea requests for the Easy V sweater that we decided to do a second write up for this pattern.  Plus, I thought I could offer a few tips since I have just finished mine!

The Easy V is Caitlin Hunter's most recent pattern.  It's a top-down, circular-yoke sweater that features a colourwork chevron pattern across the yoke and sleeves.  It's oversized and comfy to wear, plus it's super easy (and quick!) to knit. 

I knit mine using our Cushy DK in the colourways Sushi, Cinder, Ginger and Persimmon.  I didn't add the colourwork to the sleeves, which was just a personal preference, but apart from that I knit the sweater exactly as written.  If you are interested in seeing all my project notes, take a look at my Ravelry project page.

This week, we have added more Cushy DK to the shop.  I know there are quite a few of you who are interested in making this sweater, so we have put together more colour combos using this week's colours.  If you are interested in seeing our last post about this sweater, check it out here.  Here are our colours:
