Sloper — a pattern and a knitalong

Sloper: Basic pattern for a simple sleeveless sweater

SLOPER is a basic template for a sleeveless sweater that, being knitted at a large gauge, involves very few stitches and allows you to get creative. It’s presented as a full-garment chart rather than a written description of a process, so all you need to do is work each row as indicated, or adapt it however you like! Add stripes, colorwork or a stitch pattern; play with the armhole and neck shaping; think about a split hem or exposed seams. Whatever you dream up—


Sloper pattern and introduction
with yarn/gauge notes, and thoughts on variations available within the pattern (i.e. without modification, per se)

Resizing the pattern
by adding/subtracting stitches and rows, or by working at a different gauge

Reshaping / modifying the pattern
such as changing the armhole shaping, the neck shaping and treatment, or making it more curvaceous or more boxy

• Case study: My longer linen V-neck Sloper
