Svea Slipover has a boxy fit and is worked top down in stockinette stitch. First you cast on stitches for the neck and work the back with increases on both sides. Then you pick up stitches at the shoulders and work them both separately. After the armhole openings, back and front are closed to the round and the body is worked in the round on a long circular needle. Finally, stitches around the neckline are picked up for the ribbed hem. The hem is folded to the slipover’s wrong side and sewn to it with mattress stitch.
