V Neck Mens Cable Sweater help
Hello, I'm knitting a sweater for someone without an actual knitting pattern but with a pattern thats for fabric instead, i'm not experienced with making jumpers so i was wondering:
1) do you normally decrease and increase again for the waist?
2) how do you work a v-neck not in the round?



thanks!

Men don't have the same waists women have, they're straight up and down, so you don't do shaping for them.

If you're knitting bottom up, you work the front to a little above the underarms, then where you want to divide knit across to the halfway point. Then dec at the neck edge every other or every 4th row, usually on the RS. You can work the shoulders separately or one side at a time.

Pick up stitches around after you're done and knit them the other direction. This way -/, not at the edge of the V neck of the body itself.

When you pick up sts along the V neck, the ribbing will be the other direction to the body stitches. This is normal for a neckband.

Here's a nice tutorial on decreasing for the V neck. There is a nice video for picking up sts on the Free Videos tab at the top of the page under Tips.

Hi, I just wanted to clarify does the symbol you put definitely mean knit 2 together? And I don't understand what you mean by 'not at the edge of the v neck of the body itself'?
Thanks
