My design ideas and advice: This simple v neck jumper has raw edges, this means they are left as they are and there aren’t any stitches to pick up. The cuffs on the sleeves are roll back as it is what happens when you knit stocking stitch without doing any edges, like rib. I love the curl on the edge of the sleeves, I would just advise to be careful when measuring the length of the sleeve and measure it as it curls to get the correct length. This jumper was designed as a request from a mum knitting for her daughter. The daughter wanted a simple v neck with some detail at the edge of the front and back.
