Turin Slipover (vest)
designed by beWoolen
This boxy slipover has a unique outside-in construction. You will create two separate pieces that are joined in the center at both the front and the back. The front garter ridge detail has the illusion of a V-neck for simple textural interest. Visible seaming becomes part of the design as you join live stitches together along the front, back, and each side. Mock cables with increases at the shoulders create subtle shaping as you knit.
