Hi all,

does anyone know of a good free pattern for a plain v neck pullover (for a woman)? I would like it to be reasonably fitted, so maybe with waist shaping. I have looked around and can't find anything even though it seems such a basic thing  Huh

thanks for any suggestions,
V.

It's not free, but I know that a lot of people use a book called "The Knitter's Guide to Sweater Design"... There are a couple of other books about free-form sweater design out there if you wanna look around.

I would try looking for vintage knitting books at the library or at thrift stores, I just picked up some great ones with more tight fitting classy sweaters.  It seems like any patterns made after the 80's are gigantic....

If you're feeling creative.  Knitty's "Honeymoon Cami" is a tank top that's fitted and has a v-neck.  You could alter it to be a sweater and just use the techniques stated.  Warning: the stitches are a little vague but I made on for myself so they are doable.

Hi
I find myself now asking this same question (that's why I did a search and found this thread). I'd like to know an easy sweater (to wear a collared shirt under) for work. I'm fed up buying cheapie acrylic ones from shops!
Has anyone come across any good (preferably free) patterns in the meantime?

You could also go to your LYS and pick up a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern.  They're all basic, fairly simple, and well-written (from what I understand).  I have one that I haven't made yet; they're around $5, I think.

There are a couple free patterns that I've run across and plan to make in the (distant) future:

Form Adriafil Magazine 35, there is Naturelle and Shelly (there might be others, but these are ones that I've had my eye on)

From Lana Grossa, there is this:

Thanks for the links - these sites are great. I couldn't believe how many patterns are on the Adriafil site! They don't say how easy they are, though... or how difficult!!
I'll keep hunting but there's definitely a few on there for future projects!
Thanks
