Sipila is a Mother’s Day gift, firstly for my own mom, who taught me how to make my own clothes and knits all my patterns, just because! The name Sipila is my Finnish grandmother’s maiden name, and I named it for her in honor of all the wonderful mothers, grandmothers, daughters and in our lives. Thank you, Mom!
Sipila is knit from the top down in the round. There are options for either long or short sleeves; make sure you check the suggested yardage for the version you prefer, as the long sleeve version will require more yardage. The body length is easily customizable, but changing it will also affect the yardage, so please keep that in mind.
Designed to fit with 12-14” 30.5-35.5 cm of positive ease at the bust and 2” 5 cm of positive ease at the upper arm. As the sleeve has less ease than the body, it is important to choose a size that will comfortably fit around the upper arm.
Shown in Olann Singles (short sleeved) and House of A La Mode Fingering Single Ply (long sleeved)
