It was said, “A slip over sweater shows off all a girls good points – but all the boys want to pull the wool over a girls eyes!” Well, times may have changed but in the end the slip over sweater is still my favorite sweater for women.
Sothern is a study in vintage Fair Isle fashion, made modern. The sweater body is constructed from the bottom up in the round, with the sleeves worked flat. The sleeves and hem are done with a fairly deep 1x1 rib. This piece is worked with no shaping for a generous fit with 2-4” of ease. The high neck line and small peep back is added for ease of fit and comfort. There are 2 body lengths: cropped (as shown in photos) and full sweater size
The color combination of each pattern can be adjusted to fit your preferences. Go loud and proud in neon or subdued and relaxed in pastels.
