How to Draw Fashion Sweaters and Sweatshirts

Try neckline variations for your fashion sweaters.

Scoop neck: This neckline is a bit wider and deeper than the neckline you draw for a basic shirt (the crew neck). Your curved line should drop onto the chest a bit and start and end more toward the outside of the shoulders.

V-neck: The V-neck is one of the easiest necklines to draw. Start outside of the neck and draw two diagonal lines that meet about a third of the way down on the chest. If you feel daring, go for a deeper V.

Turtleneck: Turtlenecks make long fashion necks look even longer. Draw a line from the neckline halfway up each side of the neck and just outside of the neck. Connect these two lines with a slightly curved line across the neck.

Cowl neck: This loose, drapey collar takes some practice. Wrap lines around the neck, starting from the shoulder of each side. The trick is to keep the lines different lengths and make sure they don’t connect in the center.

Crew neck: This is the same neckline you use when drawing a basic shirt.

One shoulder only: Used on lighter sweaters, the one-shoulder neckline starts at the midpoint of one shoulder, scoops across the upper chest, and ends at the outer edge of the opposite shoulder. Sometimes designers add a spaghetti strap to the wider side of the neckline to help hold the sweater in place.
