Kids Scrap Yarn V Neck Sweater Knitting Pattern

For this V-neck sweater, I decided to make use of my abundant scrap yarn instead of purchasing new skeins. This kid’s sweater features a ribbed hem, ribbed cuffs, v-neck collar, and a relaxed shape. It is knit in 4 separate pieces using a basic stockinette stitch. If you’ve never knit a sweater before, this is a great one to try!
