THIS IS A PRINTED PATTERN.

The Sille Slipover is worked from the top down in a knit and purl structure pattern. First the back yoke is worked, then the shoulders, and then the front yoke are worked flat. After this, the front and back yoke are joined and the body is worked in the round, and finally rib edges are worked along the neck and armhole openings.

Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge before starting the project.

Size guide
Note that these measurements are only achieved if the correct gauge is kept.

The Sille slipover is designed to have approx. 6-10 cm [2¼-4 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 6-10 cm [2¼-4 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) inches].

The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S slipover has a bust circumference of 96 cm [37¾ inches], which in the given example would give you 6 cm [2¼ inches] of positive ease. If you would like a more oversize fit, knit a size larger.
