I would like to make this:

I was thinking of doing the bottom in rounds, but does anyone have an idea for joining the upper part?  Or any better idea for the whole thing?  Any advice would be appreciated, since I've never made up my own pattern before--even when it's based on something I can look at!  Smiley

this probably isn't very helpful, but i have a top like that and it is so flattering and comfy. but i have no clue how to knit.

we sometimes sell off our sweet vintage wardrobes due to necessity.

I would like to crochet it... I guess I wasn't clear.  Undecided

But I'm glad to hear it's a comfy top!

It looks pretty simple to make.

You can, of course make the lower half as one peice in the round. The sleeves and the top part of the jumper are the same part, like a kimono sleeve. For the back two parts you would need to the width of your back+the length of the arm-no shaping here. For the front the measurements would be the same, but to make the v-neck you would decrease however many stitches needed to make that angle. You would then do an edging around the neck.

It looks to me like the actual garment is a knit/purl rib, and in order to get the same pattern you would need to work the bottom half in the short length and the sleeves and top half long ways in a crochet rib.

Where the lower half points upward when joined to the v- I think that will happen naturally. To join the bits I would just sew or crochet them together.

Thank you so much, zeeblebee! Kiss

That helps a lot.  I think I will do the bottom pieces flat and in short rows to get that ribbing effect, like you said.  Rounds wouldn't get that vertical line I like so much.  I was most worried about the neckline, but with your geometric shapes, I totally see what I need to do now!  Grin

Thanks again!

To me, it looks like you could do the sleeve all in one. It looks like one wide rectangle with the top being shaped like a "V." The "V" gets folded in half and lines up with the bottom part, done it rounds, as described already.
