A striking single-color Fair Isle border is the perfect foil for the pared-down styling of this V-neck pullover. Knitted in the round with the right side always facing, the border is a great way to get acquainted with two-color knitting. And once you've completed the color work, you're home free-the rest of the sweater couldn't be simpler to knit. The edges are all worked in a few rows of garter stitch and the neckband, picked up and worked back and forth, overlaps at the point of the V-neckline. The heathery yarn, a combination of wool and alpaca, is soft, light-weight, and comfortable to wear.
