The Holiday Slipover 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 bigger yarn and one strand of the thin silk mohair yarn).

Size guide

Holiday Slipover is designed to have approx. 6 cm [2¼ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 6 cm [2¼ inches] larger in circumference than your chest measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a chest circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-50 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches].

Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 96 cm [37¾ inches], which in the given example would give you 5 cm [2 inches] of positive ease.

If you would like a more oversize fit, chose a size larger than you would normally do.

Materials: 

The yarns recommended on the pattern are not always available so here is my recommendation.

This pattern is knitted with 2 strands of 8Ply held together with a single strand of 2ply mohair silk. 

250-300 (300) 300 (350) 350 (400) 450 (450) 500 g  Sesia Nordica (50 g = 125 m)  held together with 50 (50) 50 (50) 50 (50) 50 (75) 75 g Sesia Vivienne (25 g = 210 m) or Kidsilk Haze by Rowan (25 g = 210 m)

The beige Holiday Slipover in the pictures is knit in Snefnug (Lys Beige) from CaMaRose and Silk Mohair (colour 6) from Isager.

The white Holiday Slipover in the pictures is knit in Puf (101) from Gepard and Kid Seta (406) from Gepard. When using Puf from Gepard, you will need a bit more yardage as the yarn runs shorter than the others.
