Holiday Slipover - Junior, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern
The Holiday Slipover is a quick and fun make to show the little people in your life some knitting love!
It is a chunky slipover with deep armholes, worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. First the back of the yoke is worked, then the shoulders, then the front of the yoke and finally the body. A split rib edge where the back section is worked a bit longer than the front section is worked at the hem. Rib edges are worked at the neck edge and along the armholes at the end, and finished with an Italian cast-off for a neat and lovely finish.
This knitting project has been designed to be knit with three strands of yarn held together - two strands of a double knit yarn with one strand of a silk mohair lace weight yarn. This gives a chunky look with a slight haze from the mohair yarn. Knit a swatch before beginning your Holiday Slipover to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge.
