The Very Simplest SLIP-OVER - highly desired item for South Africa as of Nov 2010.

 

 

SLIP-OVER INSTRUCTIONS - BASIC TANK TOP STYLE

In its simplest form, easy enough for even the beginning knitter/crocheter, this vest is made from 2 rectangles with a ‘shoulder strap’ attached on each side.

 

The finished size of the garment should be 3" longer than it is wide. The shoulder strap is included in the total length

 

IMPORTANT -

(1) these garments may be worn next to the skin - we need to use very soft yarn

(2) the armhole needs to be large enough that these can be worn over t-shirts..

(3) yarn weight - whatever equates roughly to 2 strands of fine baby yarn

(4) should be a bit stretchy - try a needle or hook size larger than called for

 

Since SLIP-OVERS are needed for ages 3 to teen, I have created the following chart

 

BODY               SHOULDER      TOTAL          ARMHOLE

RECTANGLE    STRAP             LENGTH         LENGTH

11x12"            2x2"                  15"                4"

13x14"            3x3"                  17"                5"

14x15"            3 wide x 4"         18"                6"

15x16"            3 wide x 4"         19"                6"

16x17"            3 wide x4"          20"                7"

 

The above dimensions are meant as a rough guide only - slight variations are fine as long as the neck and armholes are large enough for the size of the garment.
