Novice Slipover, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern

SKU: T0203


This is a printed knitting pattern 

Knit in a DK/8ply yarn held together with a silk mohair lace, this classic vest/slipover is perfect for between season layering. 

The Novice Slipover is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. First the back yoke is worked, and then stitches are picked up and knitted along the cast-on edge of the back yoke for the shoulders, which are worked and then joined together to form the front yoke.

The back and front yoke are joined at the underarm to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle. Rib edges are worked along the armholes and the neck edge at the end. There are help videos of all the steps in the pattern on this page.
