The Stockholm Slipover vest is worked from the top down. The back part of the yoke is worked first, then the shoulders and front and finally the two sections are joined for the body of the slipover. The Stockholm Slipover has slanting shoulders that create a very good fit and which are shaped using short rows. Rib edges are worked along the neck edge and armholes, and all the edges are finished with an Italian bind-off.
Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge – it is important for the shoulder width of the design to achieve the correct gauge.

Size guide
The Stockholm Slipover is designed to have approx. 6 cm [2¼ inches] of positive ease. Sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are intended for a bust circumference of approx. 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]. Measure yourself using a measuring tape to determine which size to knit. Example: If you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around the widest part of your bust (or belly, if this is the widest part of your upper body), this would mean you should knit a size S.
The Stockholm Slipover is worked with decreases on the body. If your bust is not the widest part of your body, these decreases can be omitted.
