Take a closer look!
A basic V-neck sweater ranks at the top of most people's wardrobe staples. And with CustomFit, yours can suit you perfectly. Firth has a moderately deep neckline, 1x1 ribbed edgings, and is available in your choice of sweater constructions (drop shoulder and set-in sleeve) fits (close through oversized), silhouettes (straight, a-line, tapered, half-hourglass, and hourglass), sleeve lengths, and sweater lengths. It looks great in just about any yarn, in any gauge you'd care to knit.
Lauren is shown in a set-in sleeve "hourglass relaxed" fit in Quince and Co Lark's color "Iceland"; she's chosen an average sweater length and long sleeves, with an hourglass silhouette.
Amy is shown in a set-in sleeve women's "average fit" in Habu Textiles N80 Wrapped Merino 4p in color Green; she's chosen a tunic sweater length, long sleeves, and an a-line silhouette.
Maya is shown in a drop-shoulder construction "close" fit in a now-discontinued wool-silk-alpaca blend, in light gray; she's wearing a long length, long sleeves, and half-hourglass silhouette.

Lauren's sample was knit in Quince and Co Lark, an all-American 100% wool that's soft, sustainable, and that comes in a variety of great colors. I used the color "Iceland", at a gauge of approximately 5 stitches per inch. For a standard size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)'' bust at the same gauge, you'll need approximately 6 (7, 8, 8. 9, 9, 10, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) hanks of Lark.
Amy's sample was knit in Habu Textiles N80 Wrapped Merino 4p in color "Green"; I liked a gauge of approximately 6.5 stitches per inch. For a standard size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)'' bust at the same gauge (and the same length/silhouette options), you'll need approximately 7 (8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 14, 15) cones of the Habu.
For other yarns, CustomFit will give you a yardage estimate before you finalize a custom pattern, but you can also use Hannah Fettig's Stashbot app or pamphlet to estimate yarn requirements when purchasing yarn.
