This is a printed knitting pattern for a lovely lightweight trans-seasonal layering piece - this Stockholm Slipover Vest by global favourite designer, Mette Wendelboe Okkels of PetiteKnit - has been designed to be knit with two strands of fine yarn held together to make a light as air garment.
The Stockholm Slipover vest is worked from the top down. The back part of the yoke is worked first, then the shoulders and front and finally the two sections are joined for the body of the slipover. The Stockholm Slipover has slanting shoulders that create a very good fit and which are shaped using short rows. Rib edges are picked up and worked along the neck edge and armholes, and all the edges are finished with an Italian bind-off.
