If you want to knit the vest longer than the pattern suggests, you must go up a size.

Friday Slipover knit from top to bottom in pearl rib. First the back piece is knitted, then the shoulders and the front piece and finally the bodice. Ribbed edges are finally knitted along the neckline and armholes.

Knit a test piece before you start.Note that pearl rib stretches in the wash/in use. You can therefore count on the knitting strength before washing/use to be approximately 24-25 m per 10 cm, and that after washing/use it will stretch to 22 m per 10 cm. It is essential for the shoulder width and the fit that the knitting tightness is observed. Therefore, wash the test piece before you measure the knitting strength.

 

Size guide

Stockholm Slipover knit from top to bottom. First the back piece, then the shoulders and the front piece and finally the body. To get a good fit, the Stockholm Slipover has a shoulder slope formed by means of shortened laps (turning pins) on the shoulders. Along the neck opening and armholes, knit purl edges that are cut off with a tight Italian cast off.

More information

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 thin 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.

Other information:

100% extrafine merino wool, superwash treated

 

Lace mohair/silk:

Mohair's softness depends primarily on the quality of the fibers. Superkid mohair comes from the first sorting, and is the softest and thinnest fibers you get from the mohair goat. The second sort is usually what is called kid mohair, and is also soft, but not as soft as the superkid mohair. Superkid mohair can be used close to the skin, and provides incredibly light and airy garments. The silk gives the yarn a lovely, exclusive mother-of-pearl sheen.

The yarn is thin, so it is very suitable as a companion thread for e.g. many of PetiteKnit's designs. This yarn is well suited for ego knitting and children's knitting.

Advice when knitting with hand-dyed yarn
Hand-dyed yarn, as the name suggests, is a craft, and there will be differences between skeins. This means that it is not necessarily just a matter of unraveling the yarn and starting to knit. Now, we're not going to make it more complicated than it needs to be, but there are a few things that might be good to know before you get started.

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.
Wash and care of garments knitted in hand-dyed yarn
We recommend hand washing followed by a quick spin, or wool wash program if you trust your washing machine. Use ONLY detergent intended for wool/silk (Milo or such). Feel free to add a little clear vinegar - this helps preserve the colors. Do not soak the garment.

Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.

All knitted garments should be stored flat.
