Slip-stitch patterns zig and zag and keep the knitting zipping along in this entertaining top-down design. A traditional shape with a modern twist: Pacific Crest’s circular yoke has underarm shaping that adds ease and increased mobility to the garment.

The pattern includes an extensive ‘Notes’ file, with suggestions on customizing the design to suit your style or your stash.
