Lately, I have been on the hunt for v-neck sweaters for my own personal wardrobe. I had several store bought ones that I loved, but they were lost in a house fire and I have not found any with which to replace them. Now that I have taken up knitting, the search has been for patterns.
A few weeks ago I noticed a new pattern floating about on Ravelry from Mission Falls called Aspen:
While not wild about the color work on the sleeves, I liked the overall simplicity of the design.
A little research on Ravelry showed this pattern was for sale by Mission Falls in a booklet entitled Duet. There were four designs uploaded to Ravelry and, as I assumed, there were only four patterns.
Imagine my surprise when I received my order and there were a dozen designs, especially as several more jumped out at me:
Now I realize the two-tone teal of Gabriella is not v-neck, but the vertical ribbing is very nice and I like the subdued colorwork.
The blue vest could easily be converted to a sweater with afterthought sleeves and even a bit of cabling running down the center of each of them.
The purple jacket would look nice over black slacks or a skirt.
I love the neckline of the last one. The different shades are nice, but even in one color, it would be lovely.
Oh, yes, I am seeing endless possibilities.
