This sweater is definately a case of 'second time lucky'...(I ripped the first, bottom up version, in favour of a basic top down one)..and I'm really glad now that I did!...I love the way that this one looks and fits :-)
The yarn was Lang Filo using size 10.5 and 11 (US) needles... no real instructions, I just took the neck measurement from an existing sweater, and started knitting!
For anybody who is unfamiliar with knitting from the top, there are a few good sites that give free instructions, and there is also some free knitting design software that gives you top-down instructions.
2paw, I haven't made a v-neck top down yet, but I've seen some on other people's blogs (and needless to say, they looked awesome!)...it's something else to put on my to-do list. I found a VERY brief 'how to' here.
I have made cardigans before when I was making 'great auntie' pressies, and they were really easy and fun to make :-)
