SEXYBACK SLIPOVER ENGLISH
SexyBack Slipover pattern (english).
The SexyBack Slipover has a deep V-shaped neck front and back. Starting off with the rib, the neck is shaped as a V by increasing. Then, working in Stockinette front- and back pieces are worked one by one, from the top down while at the same time binding off the stitches of the rib. All pieces are joined after shaping the armholes, and finished with a rib trim.
