Berry slipover is a loose and stretchy slipover in rib. The slipover has a short fit, a perfect combination with high waist trousers. Berry slipover is worked top down with a turtle neck and pretty shoulder details and raglan increases. Once the turtle neck is finished, you work increases for the yoke in every round. As you don’t work short rows at the neck, the slipover has the same length at front and back. As the slipover is worked in rib, it can be perfectly adjusted to your desired fit when steam ironing it.
6 mm for the turtle neck and the bottom of the body. 7 mm for the yoke and body. You might want to use one long circular needle and the magic loop method for the sleeves and the neck. 5 mm for the ribbing at the armhole opening.
The slipover pictured in this instruction is worked in Rauma Vams Kamel (63) and Knitting for Olive Soft silk mohair Blød Nougat.
Choose a size that is approx.10-15 cm wider (positive ease) than your chest circumference. The circumference is measured across the bust, right under the armhole opening. The stated measurements on the front page are for the finished garment.
