This design is knitted top-down seamlessly in stockinette stitch, holding 3 strands of yarn.  The slipover is knitted partially flat and partially in the round.

You will begin by knitting flat the back until the underarms. Then, separately knit each shoulder flat at the front, shaping the v-neckline at the same time. The front and the back will then be joined together and the rest of the body will be knitted in the round.  The body is finished off with 1×1 ribbing and a tubular bind off for an elastic effect.  Next, you will pick up stitches along the armholes to create the ribbing.  To create the neckband you will pick up stitches around the neckline. Neckband is knitted flat in 1×1 ribbing and bound off with a classic bind off to maintain the shape. 

This slipover  is  designed to have approx. 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 15 cm [8 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement.

Available sizes:   S ( M ) L 

The sizes S ( M ) L are designed to fit approx. bust circumference of  80-88 (88-96) 96-104 cm [ 31-35 (35-38) 38-41 in ]

Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35.5 inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M slipover has a bust circumference of 110 cm [43.25 inches] which, in the given example, would give you  25cm [9.75 inches] of positive ease.

Bust circumference:  105 ( 110) 115 cm  [ 41.25 ( 43.25 ) 45.25 in ] 

Length: measured mid-back excluding the neckband 52 ( 54 ) 56 cm [  20.5 ( 21.25 ) 22 in ]
