This is for a pdf formatted pattern of the Lara Slipover

We so loved the Lyra Fair Isle vest - that we designed a simpler, chunkier version which would be quick and easy to knit! The perfect extra layer for Autumn/Winter! Knitted in our beautiful Lalland Aran, seamlessly and with some subtle shaping and the classic square neck in a contrast colour (your choice!), Lara is easy to wear for an added cosy layer in Autumn /Winter or to take away the chill in Spring / Summer.

The pattern contains details for 7 different sizes of the slipover. 

 

Materials

Di Gilpin Lalland Aran Lambswool (100% lambswool spun in Scotland, colour blended by Di and finished in Yorkshire). 100 gram balls. Meterage: 150m/164yds to 100gr.

Sizes 1 and 2:     3 x 100gr balls

Sizes 3 and 4:     4 x 100gr balls

Sizes 5 and 6:     5 x 100gr balls

Size 7:                 6 x 100gr balls

If making a multi-colour version, you will also need 1 ball of a contrast colour. You can delve into your stash if required as the neck contrast only takes from 20 – 30gr across the sizes.

 Needles

1 pair 5mm (UK 6, US 8) straight needles plus long circular or dpns equivalent.

Adjust needle size to achieve correct tension
