Petiteknit descibes the Holiday Slipover as" 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 worsted weight yarn and one strand of lace weight yarn)."
You too can knit your very own Holiday Slipover.....yes I made a few modifications to the neck which is mich lower then the original version but I am more then happy to share these with you. I have added comprehensive notes to my ravelry project page. My user name on ravelry is ctashc. Please also feel free to contact me if you are not on ravelry and I can email you my modifications.
I am the model pictured and I have a 40" bust, I am 5'9" tall and knitted the XL. I used exactly 4 skeins of the KOKON BLEU ARAN weight Semi Solid held double with one strand of the KOKON BLEU Kidsilk Mohair also in the Semi Solid.
