Mari Lynn Patrick’s cropped pullover works two ways. Wear it as a deep V neck as shown, or flop it over to form a cropped cowlneck; either way , it’s a quick knit in Van dyck, 46% Wool, 39%Acrylic, 15% Alpaca. You can find this pattern in Vogue Knitting Winter 2005/06.
My own alteration would be to lengthen the body down to my upper thigh making it more of a bum warmer than cowlneck.
The body is worked in one piece; sleeves are picked up and knit down from the armholes.
This will make a neat addition to my sweater collection.
