The Kreuzberg slipover features wide stripes in seven colours. It is named after a Berlin neighbourhood where Rebekka Mauser stumbled upon a 1970s slipover that inspired this modern knit.
It is worked top down, beginning with a Provisional Cast-On. The shoulders are shaped with short rows. After the back is completed, the fronts are worked separately (each knitted flat) and the crewneck is shaped with increases. Both sides of the front are then joined and the front is knitted top down flat to the underarm while the armhole is shaped with increases. The back and front are joined in the round for the lower body, which is worked top down in the round to the ribbed hem. Stitches are picked up around the armhole and a ribbed edging is worked in the round. In the same way the ribbed neck edging is worked..
