SLEEVELESS SLIPOVER

This style is so versatile, we all wanted different lengths. So here you have it—cropped, hip, tunic, and dress lengths. Or any length you’d like! It’s quite simple to customize your Slipover—for your personal style or body type, as a long layer with side vents, or as a short topper over a tee, to be dressed up or down.

We designed eight different sizes and four different lengths. There are so many beautiful textures and fabrics and colors to play with. You might want to knit a few and mix it up!

INSOUCIANT

A flattering-on-everyone silhouette and meticulous details like a rolled neck, exposed raglan seams and side slits, this sweater is among my favorites. Wear it casual or with something dressier, for an easy elegance upgrade. Loose fit. Scoopneck. Short sleeves. Falls just below hip.

PHI

The Golden Ratio, or Phi, represents harmony in nature, art and mathematics, and embodies the human perception of beauty. This asymmetric shawl harmoniously blends two colors to the Golden Mean, and then back again, using the Fibonacci sequence to determine the width of the stripes and their relation one to the next … All knitting, always pleasing, with a graphic , and harmonious result.
