The September Slipover is worked from the top down in brioche stitch. First the back yoke is worked top-down back and forth with increases at both ends of the work. Then stitches are picked up and knitted at the sides for the shoulders, which are worked separately and then joined to form the front. The front and back are joined at the underarm and the body is worked in the round to the hem. At the end, stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and rib edges are worked.

Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. Take care when measuring the gauge of your swatch, as brioche stitch is difficult to measure correctly because it is so stretchy – measure more than once.

Size guide
The September Slipover is designed to have approx. 10 cm [4 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 10 cm [4 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 100 cm [39¼ inches] which in the given example would give you 10 cm [3¾ inches] of positive ease.
