The Friday Slipover is worked from the top down in broken rib. First the back of the yoke is worked, then the shoulders, then the front of the yoke and finally the body. Rib edges are worked at the neck edge and along the armholes.

Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. Note that broken rib stretches when washed and with wear. The gauge you can expect to have before wash/wear is approx. 24-25 sts in 10 cm 4 inches, which after wash/wear will grow to the correct gauge of 22 sts in 10 cm 4 inches. The most important element in achieving the correct shoulder width and fit is knitting at the correct gauge, so be sure to wash and dry your swatch before measuring the gauge.

Size guide
The Friday 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 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) 140-50 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 (or your widest upper body part) to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm 35½ inches around your bust (or your widest upper body part) 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.

Friday Slipover is an ideal scrap yarn project, and the striped version is thus also knitted in scrap yarn. The stripes are knitted randomly underway. You can create a lovely effect in the color changes by choosing to work in a light color yarn as the mail color throughout and only changing the color of the silk mohair. If you want more pronounced stripes, use the same color in both types of yarn. Note that the stripes on the back and front panels while you are working them separately should be identical.
