This knitting pattern is in Swedish.
Zipper Slipover is knitted from the top down. The neck edge is knitted in elastic, which is folded double and knitted down. After this, the shoulder sections are knitted with increases on both the right and wrong sides, and shortened rounds are knitted to shape the neckline. The stitches of the front pieces are put to rest, while the back is knitted. After this, the front pieces are knitted, and finally the front pieces and the back are joined to form the torso, which is knitted down. An elastic edge is knitted in the armhole from the picked up stitches. Finally, linings for the zipper are knitted from resting stitches, so that the zipper looks nice also from the wrong side. The zipper is finally assembled by sewing it in between the two knitted layers.
Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength.
Zipper Slipover should have a range of motion (positive ease) of approx. 25 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The fit is oversized. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a bust measurement, measured on your own body, of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110- 120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm. The measurements of the finished slipover are given on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting, to determine which size will fit you best. If you e.g. measures 88 cm around the bust (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A slipover in size S has an excess width of 113 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement (positive ease) of 25 cm.
