Holiday Slipover Junior
This pattern is in English.
The Holiday Slipover Junior is a chunky slipover with deep armholes. It is 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.
Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. Note that three strands of yarn are held together throughout the pattern for a chunky look (two strands of the thicker yarn and one strand of silk mohair).
