I love V-neck sweaters, though I think I’ve knit more crew necks, a lot of the sweaters I buy are V-necks. Maybe it’s just because the patterns I tend to be drawn toward don’t happen to be V-necks.
The good news is if you want to add a V-neck to a sweater you are knitting, it really isn’t all that difficult to alter the neckline. These instructions from Basix Knitting show you how to turn a top-down crew neck, scoop neck or square neck sweater into a V-neck, which admittedly is a little more complex than altering a bottom up sweater, but is nonetheless doable.
Yes, there is math. No, it’s not scary.
This is also a great way to learn how V-necks work if you should happen to want to design your own sweater, which is always great knowledge to have.
Have you ever converted a neckline to a different style? I’d love to hear about it!
