Sleeveless Slipover Pattern

Sleeveless Slipover Pattern

“8 sizes and 4 lengths!”

This style is so versatile, we all wanted different lengths. So here you have it—cropped, hip, tunic, and dress lengths. Or any length you’d like! It’s quite simple to customize your Slipover—for your personal style or body type, as a long layer with side vents, or as a short topper over a tee, to be dressed up or down.

We designed eight different sizes and four different lengths in a variety of summery fibers. From the effortlessly cool Shibui Twig to the deliciously lustrous Blue Sky Fibers Alpaca Silk, from the glowing and drapey Erika Knight Studio Linen to the incomparable pairing of Shibui’s Cima and Reed—there are so many beautiful textures and fabrics and colors to play with. You might want to knit a few and mix it up!

This 8 page pattern includes:

  • Color photographs by the talented Jared Flood
  • A Special Technique—‘flat slipped-stitch’ edging (to keep those side vents from rolling)
  • Step-by-step guide for adjusting body & armhole lengths, with a fill-in-the-blank section to help with the math
  • A tutorial on picking up stitches for neck & armhole edgings (along horizontal, vertical and sloped edges) accompanied by color photos
  • Instructions for swatching for gauge and fabric, and finishing and blocking your garment

Swatching for gauge and fabric:

For confidence that your knitted garment will turn out the right size, it is important to swatch your yarn and block it before diving into the project. Your stitch gauge is important for body fit; your row gauge will affect the length. You can also assess whether you like the look and feel of the fabric for this project: Does it have the right drape? Is it too stiff or too limp? Is it too sheer?

We have knitted this slipover at a DK-weight gauge of 22 sts = 4"/10cm and 32 rows = 4"/10cm. Cast on 33 stitches to knit a swatch that measures about 6"/15cm wide; work in St St for 6"/15cm; bind off loosely.

Measure unblocked stitch and row gauges; write them down to use as a reference while knitting. Soak swatch for about 20 minutes in tepid water with a little no-rinse wool wash, squeeze water out, roll in a towel to remove more water, and lay flat to dry. When swatch is completely dry, steam press. Allow to ‘rest’ for a day or two—gauge can change after it relaxes. Measure again.

If you have more than 22 stitches in 4"/10cm, your gauge is a little tight; try swatching again on larger needle. If you have fewer than 22 sts, your gauge is a little loose; try again on smaller needle.

Our pattern has tips for adjusting for row gauge differences.
