Friendship slipover (english)
Difficulty 2-3 of 5
A Slipover with elegant and simple twisting pattern. The pattern is thoroughly described, and in the pattern, you will find video links on how to knit the twists. The twists are described both with diagram and with or without cable needle. Thus, you can follow the version you prefer.
The slipover is knitted from the top down with a simple construction. Once you have put the front and back together you can choose whether you want a shaped version that emphasizes the waist and female shapes. If you just want a slipover that goes straight down you can also choose that. In addition, you can also choose between a short and a long version. Or make your very own length.
- Pick up Stitches.
- Increases and decreases.
- Twists over 6 stitches.
- You can choose an Italian bind off which gives a nice finish on all edges.
