ADULT'S SWEATER:

Gauge: 24 sts x 40 rows on larger needles in pattern = 10 x 10 cm . NOTE: Row gauge is very important during raglan shaping.

Pattern: See chart (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is seen from the right side.

Rib: * K 2, P 2 *. Repeat from * - *.

Body: Numbers in ( ) = men’s sizes. Cast on 244-260 (248-260-268-280) sts on smaller circular needles with medium petrol; join and place a marker at the join. Knit rib for 5-5 (6-6-6-6) cm , increasing 40-44 (40-44-48-52) sts evenly distributed on the last row = 284-304 (288-304-316-332) sts. Change to larger circular needles and knit Pattern. When the work measures 32-35 (39-40-40-42) cm , knit the next row as follows: bind off 4 sts for armhole, 134-144 (136-144-150-158) sts for the front, bind off 8 sts for armhole, 134-144 (136-144-150-158) sts for the back, bind off 4 sts for armhole. Put the work aside.

Sleeves: Cast on 52-56 (56-60-60-64) sts on smaller double pointed needles with medium petrol; join and place a marker at the join. Knit rib for 5-5 (6-6-6-6) cm , increasing 8-8 (8-4-8-4) sts evenly distributed on the last row = 60-64 (64-6468-68) sts. Change to larger double pointed needles and knit Pattern. After the rib, inc 1 st each side of marker 28-28 (28-30-28-31) times:
Sizes S/M + M/L + (XXL): every 5th row
Sizes (S/M + M/L + XL): alternately every 5th and 6th row
= 116-120 (120-124-124-130) sts - knit the increased sts into the pattern as you go along. When the work measures 45-45 (49-50-49-49) cm (adjust for complete pattern -- it is important that you end on the same row as on the body) bind off 4 sts each side of marker and put the work aside = 108-112 (112-116-116-122) sts.

Body: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needles as the body where 8 sts are bound off = 484-512 (496-520-532-560) sts on the needles. Attach a marker in each transition between the sleeves and the body (4 markers). Continue the Pattern, but knit the first st on each side of each marker in stockinette st (2 stockinette sts in each transition from the body to the sleeve).

Raglan shaping: Read the entire next section before knitting!
Dec 1 st on each side of the 2 transition stockinette sts every 4th row 3-2 (3-3-6-5) times, then every other row 46-50 (47-50-48-52) times (8 decreased sts per row).
Make decreases as follows:
Before the 2 transition sts:
Right side: K 2 tog.
Wrong side: Lift the next 2 sts off the needles, put them back on the left needle twisted (one by one), P 2 tog into the back of the sts.
After the 2 transition sts:
Right side: Slip 1, K 1, psso.
Wrong side: P 2 tog.

Turtleneck: When 6-6 (5-6-8-8) raglan decreases remain to be worked, bind off the center front 20-24 (22-22-20-22) sts for the neck and knit the rest back and forth on the needles. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 2-2 (2-2-3-3) times, 1 st 4-4 (3-4-5-5) times. Bind off after the last raglan decrease.

V-neck: At the same time as the raglan shaping, bind off for the front neck. When the work measures 42-45 (49-50-52-54) cm , divide the work at the center front and knit the rest back and forth on the needles. Bind off for the neck every other row: 2 sts 1 time, 1 st 6-7 (5-6-8-8) times, then every 4th row: 1 st 8-9 (8-8-9-10) times, and then every 6th row: 1 st 2-2 (3-3-3-3) times.

Bind off all sts after the last raglan decrease row. The work measures approx. 58-62 (65.5-68-70-73) cm and 56-56 (60-58-58-60) sts remain on the needles. The sweater’s measurement up to the shoulder = 60-64 (68-70-72-75) cm .

Assembly: Sew the 8 sts together at each underarm.

Turtleneck: Pick up approx. 96-100 (100-100-104-108) sts around the neck on smaller double pointed needles with medium petrol. Knit rib, increasing to approx. 120-140 sts (divisible by 4 sts) evenly distributed across the first row. When the rib measures 16-16 (16-16-18-18) cm , bind off loosely in rib.

V-neck: Pick up approx. 148-160 sts (divisible by 4 sts) around the neck on smaller needles with medium petrol and knit 3 cm rib back and forth on the needles from the center front as follows: K 1 (edge st knit in garter st throughout), * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from * - * until 3 sts remain on the needles, K 2, K 1 (edge st knit in garter st throughout). Bind off in rib. Lay the right (left for men) part of the neck edge over the left (right for men) and sew.

Rectificatif...est ce qu'on tricote en" tour ou en rang."..pas en tour ou en rond naturellement

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 11:11:

voir réponse ci-dessous.

Bourgeois 20.12.2015 - 11:47:

Bonjour Au montage des mailles vous dites " joindre et placer un marqueur" ce qui suppose de tricoter en rond, mais plus loin il est question de "rang" et non de "tour"...alors est ce en tour ou en rond? Merci de votre réponse Cordialement A.B.

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 11:04:

Bonjour Mme Bourgeois, tout à fait, les "rangs" ont été modifiés en "tours" quand nécessaire. Bon tricot!

Iris 14.10.2015 - 16:01:

Ik denk dus dat er in de Nederlandse beschrijving zou moeten staan "Minder 1-1-2-0 (1-1-3) x 1 st aan weerskanten van elke 2 tussenst in elke 4e nld, en hierna in elke 2e nld: 25-28-31-37 (37-40-40) x 1 st (8 geminderde st per nld)." Dus voor de kleinste maat totaal (1 + 25) x 8 = 208 minderingen voor de raglan in plaats van (7 + 25) x 8 = 254 minderingen zoals er nu staat. Klopt dat?

DROPS Design 15.10.2015 kl. 14:45:

Hoi Iris. Je hebt gelijk. Er was iets verkeerd hier met de Nederlandse vertaling. Ik heb het online aangepast volgens het originele Noorse patroon.

Iris 14.10.2015 - 13:58:

Ik zou dan meer steken moeten minderen dan ik op de naald heb staan, dus heb ik eens naar andere vertalingen gekeken en in de Engelse versie staat er iets heel anders: "Dec 1 st on each side of the 2 transition stockinette sts every 4th row 1-1-2-0 (1-1-3) times, then every other row 25-28-31-37 (37-40-40) times (8 decreased sts per row)." In andere talen is het voor de kleinste maat ook eerst 1 keer minderen in de vierde naald (ipv 7 keer), dan 25 keer in de tweede naald.

Iris 14.10.2015 - 13:58:

Hoi, Ik ben bezig met de kleinste kindermaat. Ik denk dat er in de Nederlandse beschrijving een fout staat in de raglanminderingen voor de kindertrui. Er staat "Minder 7-13-16-20 (20-22-24) x 1 st aan weerskanten van elke 2 tussenst in elke 4e nld, en hierna in elke 2e nld: 25-28-31-37 (37-40-40) x 1 st (8 geminderde st per nld)."

Bonjour, je voudrais savoir comment "traduire" le patron à tricoter en laine pure cachemire, aiguilles 3.5-4 merci d'avance Dieter Zangs

DROPS Design 11.11.2013 kl. 10:33:

Bonjour Mr Zangs, ce modèle a été écrit sur la base d'un échantillon de 24 m x 40 rangs= 10 x 10 cm. Vous pouvez tout recalculer sur la base de la règle de 3 ou bien utiliser le moteur de recherches et nos groupes de qualités pour trouver un modèle correspondant à votre tension pour 10 cm. Bon tricot!

Antonetta Huizinga 11.04.2013 - 06:23:

I can not find instructions for the structureral pattern. I have horizontal tension correct but unable te get to 40 vertical st. Is 40 st correct? Pattern men 59/17. Love your patterns!

DROPS Design 11.04.2013 kl. 09:51:

Dear Mrs Huizinga, diagram is at the very bottom of the page and text for diagram just above the measurement chart. Happy knitting !

Hoi. De vertaling van de teltekening staat in het patroon onder VERTALING SYMBOLEN TELTEKENING. In de kop van het patroon staan de kleurennummers na de naam. Bijvoorbeeld grijsblauw nr. 39. Succes. Tine

Gerojo 25.11.2010 - 09:24:

Kunt u mij doorgeven wat de opeenvolgende kleuren zijn na het bruine boord van de herentrui? (in nummers aub) Wij komen er niet uit.
