Knitting kit for Stockholm Slipover for kids by PetiteKnit in Isager Alpaca 2 + Silk mohair
Stockholm Slipover Mini is worked from the top down. The back part of the yoke is worked first, then the shoulders and front and finally the two sections are joined for the body of the slipover. Stockholm Slipover Mini has slanting shoulders created with short rows which create a good fit. Rib edges are worked along the neck edge and armholes, and all the edges are finished with an Italian bind-off.
Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge – it is especially important for achieving the correct fit over the shoulders.
