Description

PetiteKnit Storm Slipover Junior - Knitting Kit
 

The Storm Slipover Junior is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth. Then stitches are picked up and knitted for the shoulders, which are later joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined at the underarms to form the body, which is then worked in the round on the circular needle. Stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and neck edge to work ribbed edges.

Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size will give you the correct gauge in the texture pattern. The swatch can be worked using a chart in the pattern.

The Kit Includes

  • Yarn (Peer Gynt) in your selected size & colour
  • Printed pattern in English
  • 5ml Eucalan wool wash
  • 3.5mm and 4mm circular knitting needles (optional add on)

Skill level: Intermediate

Size guide

The Storm Slipover Junior is designed to have approx. 10 cm [4 inches] of positive ease. The sizes 1-2 (2-3) 3-4 (4-5) 5-6 (6-7) 7-8 (8-9) 9-10 (10-11) 11-12 (12-14) years are designed to fit a chest circumference of 53 (54) 56 (57) 59 (62) 64 (68) 72 (75) 78 (82) cm [20¾ (21¼) 22 (22½) 23¼ (24½) 25¼ (26¾) 28¼ (29½) 30¾ (32¼) inches]. The measurements for the finished slipover can be found on the front page of the pattern (please note that these measurements are only achieved if the correct gauge is maintained). If the intended wearer measures 62 cm [24½ inches] around the chest, you should knit a size 6-7 years. A size 6-7 years sweater has a chest circumference of 72 cm [28¼ inches] which in the given example would give the intended wearer 10 cm [3¾ inches] of positive ease. If the measured chest circumference deviates from the age guide, you can adjust the length to fit the person you’re knitting for. The same applies if the child is shorter or taller than average.
