How to decrease to a V-neck

Tags: good to know, jackets, jumpers, vests,

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease to a V-neck, used in the «Unexpected» vest in DROPS 218-21. We only work the last part of the front piece where we show how to work 5 garter stitches in the middle, how to place stitches on 1 thread, decrease 1 stitch before / after the 5 middle stitches and how to knit up stitches at the back of the 5 garter stitches at the bottom of the V-neck. We use the number of stitches after the smallest size, but do not have the same numbers of rows between each decrease.

This vest is worked in DROPS Alpaca Bouclé and DROPS Kid-Silk but in the video we work with only 1 yarn; DROPS Nepal.
