The Weekend Slipover V-neck 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 front is worked separately while increases are worked to the shape the V-neckline. 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.

Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.

Size guide

The Weekend Slipover V-neck is designed to have approx. 15-20 cm [6-7¾ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 15-20 cm [6-7¾ inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 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 108 cm [42½ inches], which in the given example would give you 18 cm [7 inches] of positive ease.

The model in the photos is wearing a size XS and has a bust circumference of 82 cm [32¼ inches] and is 164 cm [approx. 5 feet 4 inches] tall.
