VERY SHORT HISTORY OF THE V-NECK: In the 1960's when I was trying to be trendy in high school and making sweaters the V-Neck tennis sweater was a very stylish item. It was done in white or off white with a red and blue striping around the sleeves and neck. In my neighborhood, you didn't do it in red and blue, you did the edge in Maroon and blue which were the colors at the time. Today I doubt even Roger Federer has one. Also the V-neck Spice yarn sweater pullover was really popular and I loved spice yarn which was one color yarn with slight frosting of another color. Anyway, I know the V-neck cardigan had a good run, but I didn't realize that ---
Guess what, V-neck sweaters are not particularly popular now, even in the men's styles and even in the vaults of RAVELRY I had to look hard to find some cute examples and patterns. Below is what I found:
These are: SEED V-NECK V-NECK CARDIGAN and V-NECK TAPESTRY
The V-neck has come a long way and I believe it will return so start knitting now!!
