V-necks
Hullo,

I'm making a cardigan for my mother and she wants the V-neck to start lower than the pattern I'm using has. Is there a formula or chart that will tell me how to properly space the deacreases so that it looks good?

thanks for your help

Hi Chanters,

I suppose you could try starting the decreases earlier and spacing them more widely apart...or perhaps find a pattern that *has* a "deeper V" and look at those instructions for some help.

Good Luck!

Diane
