Knitting a sweater is a commitment, so how wonderful that her reversible Hemmed V-Neck Pullover gives you two for the effort of one! With hems that are cleverly finished on both sides, you can wear either smooth-sailing stockinette or nubbly reverse stockinette on the out-facing side.

You knit this piece in the round from the bottom hem up to the underarms, then work the front and back separately and graft them together at the shoulders. To finish, you knit and fold the big, bold hems at the short-sleeve cuffs and beautiful deep-v neckline.
