Weekend Slipover. Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern
The Weekend Slipover is a great layer piece to wear over a tee or shirt, or under a coat for warmth but without the added bulk in the sleeve.
The Slipover is knitted hold two strands of yarn together - one 10ply (or you could use a thicker 8ply) and one 2ply/lace weight mohair silk. It is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth with the shoulder slope shaped using short rows. Then, each shoulder is worked separately and joined to form the front yoke. Front and back yoke are then joined to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle to the hem. The ribbed neck edge and armhole edges are worked at the end, and the latter are worked with decreases at the armhole.
Designed to have approximately 20-25cm of ease (the finished garment to be 20-25cm larger than your bust circumference).
