Theodora is a vintage-inspired slip-over. The characteristic of this timeless piece is a romantic collar. The vest is knitted in stockinette stitch, simple yet so elegant. The project grows quickly on the needles. Theodora is knitted bottom up and the armholes and collar are knitted by picking up the stitches from the body.
