Went looking for a photo of how this garment should look finished, is this the right one? (I like to know how things should look when finished before I try them).
It would look similar Wendy but not as thick as Jen says that she used double knitting. I looked on Jen's photos on her page and she's made several, some seamed at the sides and some knitted in the round up to the armholes.http://forum.knit-a-square.com/photo/photo/listForContributor?scree...
Wendy - I'm glad you are going to do a slip-over. The most imortant thing to remember is that these garments should be a bit stretchy (not knitted too tight) since they sometimes worn over other clothing, and that they are made of very soft yarn since they also are often worn next to the skin. They do not need to be especially thick
I make a simpler version than this pattern (see my recent examples in the photo section). For example , two rectangles (knitted or crocheted) 10x12 inches, joined by 2 straps 2 1/2 x5", giving a total length of 15 ". The slip-over should be at least 3" longer than it is wide, to allow for covering tummies. I think the10x15' size would be about a size 3-4, and I just adjust the size of the rectangle and length of straps ot make a larger size. Armholes and neck holes need to be roomy.
Hi Christine & Anne,
Thanks for the responses, I always like to see what a garment should look finished like before I attempt it LOL!
Anne, I have made other slip over patterns (notably Grace's lovely ribbed slip over), but I do like to try new patterns from time to time too. Keeps me more interested if I do something different occasionally.
