Despite the photo I do not see any sign that the pattern has a V both front and back - the picture shows the girl wearing the sweater back to front (as was fashionable in the 80s to have V-back tops).

I believe Sombrero and Terry Look were nominally DK yarns but being cotton/acrylic boucle you can knit them loosely on larger needles, which is what has been done here. The ballband of the yarn itself (and some other patterns) suggest using much smaller needles.
