Hi, Nicky~

This is gorgeous!!! Wowser!!! What a great job you've done on this. Check out some v-neck patterns here or on Ravelry and see if you can adjust the pattern to your project. If you have any trouble with it the forum here is just overflowing with knowledgeable and helpful knitters who will be happy to help you finish!

Good luck and let us know how it's going!

Ruthie

I have not knit a sweater so I can't say which is a good pattern or not, but. have you checked over at www.Ravery.com. You have to join, its free, they have a large number of free patterns for v-neck sweaters.

Also did you post this over at the Pattern Central forum of Knittinghelp?

The Knitting Fools web site has a sweater pattern generator that may be of use to you.

As I have said I have not knit any sweaters but as I understand it. Knitting a sweater from the bottom up, when you reach the point the "V" neck is to start, 1/2 of the stitches will be moved to a stitch holder (waste yarn, spare needle, official stitch holder). The live stitches will then be knit, every other row will be reduced by number of stitches necessary to create the width of "V" necessary. Once you have reached the shoulder seam bind the first side off.

Pick up the stitches off the stitch holder and knit the second side as the first side was knit.

I have now exhausted my understanding of sweater knitting.

I sympathize with you on the Norweigan pattern. I started this great pattern for my sons but quickly gave up. http://www.allcrafts.net/fjs.htm?url...hempirates.pdf
This is a bit over my head, but I think I could do it if I just went slow and did it one line at a time. It's currently abandoned, but I may try it again soon. What I would suggest you do that I didn't was to print the chart out. As you complete each line, you would cross it off with a highlighter. You could probably do this also by moving a piece of masking tape up over each line as you finish it. Good luck. Sounds like a great one.

The removable yellow note pads work very nicely for this. Cover the next line so only the current and previous lines show. You can also make notes on the yellow-note and it is always where you can see it.
