London Fog is a beginner friendly knitting pattern. It is bold and chunky vest/slipover that will effortlessly keep you dressed up and warm. You will cast on and work in the round continuously to shape the front and back plus saddle shoulders, then separate the front and back to shape arm holes and after that you will connect the front and back to work the body in the round. The slipover is worked in stockinette stitch all the way through. It is meant to be worn with little ease. 0 – 10 cm of positive ease is built into the pattern.
