The Lulu Slipover – Chunky Edition is worked from the top down. The slipover has a deep armhole and is closed with two buttons along both sides. First, the back is worked and then the front. Ribbing edges are worked along the armholes, and along the sides, which form slits towards the hem, double knitted edges are worked. Two buttonholes are worked along the front part of these double knitted edges. At the end, a ribbing edge is worked along the neck opening.
