Slanting Slipover is a rustic vest with an elegant graphic pattern across the shoulders that continue down along the sides of the slipover and ends at the side slits at the hem. The vest is worked from the top down. First the collar is worked, then sts are cast on for the shoulders and short rows are worked to shape the shoulders. After this, the work is split into front and back and each section is worked back and forth to the bottom of the armholes. Then the front and back are joined again and the body of the slipover is worked in the round. At the hem, the work is once again split into back and front and each section is worked back and forth separately to form the slits at the sides.
