All rib edges are worked with significantly smaller needles than the body of the slipover/summer top.
Several options to work the Hem and the sleeve-caps are included in the instructions.
Vestpaa is meant to have a positive ease at bust circumference of approx 10-15cm/4-6” for wearing as a summer top and 15-20cm/6-8” positive ease for a layering garment/slipover.
