Terrazzo Slipover is worked from the top down. First the back section of the yoke is worked, then the shoulders, which are joined to form the front section of the yoke. The back and front and joined at the bottom of the armholes to form the body, which is worked in the round to the hem, which has a slit at each side. At the end rib armhole edges are worked, as well a turtleneck from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neck opening. The rib edges are worked as twisted rib, to create a very defined rib pattern.
Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. Wash and block the swatch before taking any measurements. Be aware that if you are knitting in the recommended yarn, the knitted fabric will grow slightly when washed – this is the reason it is important that you wash your swatch before measuring your gauge.
Terrazzo Slipover is designed to have approx. 13 cm [5 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 13 cm [5 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches].
The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Note that these measurements are only achieved if the design is knitted in the correct gauge. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S slipover has a bust circumference of 104 cm [41 inches] which in the given example would give you 14 cm [5½ inches] of positive ease.
