Riptide Slipover Kit


      Jennifer Shiels Toland’s Riptide Slipover is an elegant little vest, perfect worn on its own or sized up to wear as a layering piece. The versatile cropped design is worked in one piece from the top down, with a simple textured lace central panel in the front and back. The armhole edges run seamlessly into the side broken rib panels to the front split hem. The Fibre Co Acadia (60% Merino, 20% alpaca, 20% silk) is a beautiful, textured 2-ply with a sheen granted by the silk noil.

      Riptide Slipover is available in 10 sizes and is designed to fit with 0 - 3”  inches of positive ease.

      Each kit includes sufficient yarn for the size specified in the color of your choice, along with the pattern. We will purchase a copy of Riptide Slipover for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!

      Please note that this kit does not include needles. You will need a US5 32” circular needle to knit everything except the neckband and a US3 16” circular or US3 DPNs to knit the neckband (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here and DPNs here.

      If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, add the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin to your order and we will package your purchase accordingly!
