Yarn package for Sille Slipover from PetiteKnit. With this yarn option, the vest is knitted in 2 strands of thin pure merino wool. Unfortunately, we do not have the rights to sell the recipe, but you can find it here:
If you want to knit the vest longer than the pattern suggests, you must go up a size.
Sille Slipover is knitted from top to bottom with structured knitting in a straight and purl pattern. The back piece is knitted first, then the shoulders and the front piece. The bodice is then knitted, and finally purl edges are knitted in the neck and sleeve opening.
Note that you can only start from the measurements in the recipe if the knitting strength is respected.
Sill Slipover should have a range of movement (positive ease)of approx. 6-10 cm in relation to your chest measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) correspond to a chest measurement, measured on your own body, of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110- 120) 120-130 (130-140) cm. The measurements of the finished vest are indicated on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting to assess which size will suit you best. If you e.g. measures 90 cm around the chest (or the widest part of your upper body), you should knit a size S. A vest in str. S has an excess width of 96 cm and in the mentioned example will provide a range of movement (positive ease) of 6 cm. If you want a more oversize fit, knit one size larger.

Thin pure merino wool:
Extrafine merino wool is used for this yarn so that it feels soft and gentle on the skin. The yarn is spun with extra long fibers to produce a yarn that is flexible and strong with a silky feel and shine. It is incredibly soft and elastic, and the threads are twisted in such a way that it gives extra strength to the yarn.
100% extra fine merino wool, super wash
We recommend that you knit every other round from different skeins to camouflage any color differences. The more colorvariety in the yarn, the more important is this. Kimmie Munkholm shows this nicely when knitting circular in this video, and when you knit back and forth in this video.
If you don't want to knit every other round from different skeins (this is done at your own risk 😉), it is recommended to do this a few rounds when changing yarn. This applies regardless of the color of the yarn.
Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.
All knitted garments should be stored flat.
