Could anyone tell me how one would go about making this into a vneck?  Someone posted a link to the other topdown pattern, but I didn't understand it.

Instead of joining  in the round, you knit the beginning flat--with just enough stitches to make your collar.  In addition to the usual raglan increases, you'll be adding increases to the edges to begin forming the v-neck.  Usually, to make a  v-neck deeper, you add more rows without increases on the edges in between--otherwise you can just make every other row an edge increase.

When you decide the V is deep enough, you can then join in the round and continue the rest of the raglan as usual--the only difference is the neckline finishing--you can pick up and knit a collar flat, then BO and overlap the edges to meet at the bottom & seam.

When you say adding increases to the edges, would I increase the second stitch from the edge?

That is wonderful. Any reason for not doing the side shaping? The colorway reminds me of ice cream with sprinkles on it Smiley

Oooh, that's really pretty. I'd love to see an action shot.


I'm still working on mine. I'm a little above my waist, probably. It's taking me forever because I work a few rounds, put it away for a few weeks, and repeat. bah.
