This piece has been hand knitted from an original 1940s knitting pattern. A smart little slipover, perfect for keeping the chill off, it looks great over a full sleeved blouse. Knitted in Cascade 220 fingering pure wool using Rosebud, Castor Grey, Mauve Orchid and Lemon.
This knit has a reasonable amount of ease so will fit a variety of sizes from a 38" bust up to a 40”. It isn’t meant to be worn close fitting or the stripes distort so 40” is the biggest bust size. The shoulders are broad on this piece so please check the pattern photo which shows where the shoulders will sit.
Flat bust 16.5” stretching to 18"
Flat waist 12" stretching to 15"
Shoulders between rib band 14"
Shoulders full width 16"
