Gauge: 22 sts and 30 rows on larger needle in stockinette stitch = 10 x 10 cm

Pattern: See chart (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is shown from the right side and is knit entirely in stockinette stitch. Charts have arrows indicating the starting points for different sizes («dame» = women’s; «herre» = men’s). .

Rib: * knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from * - *.

Body: Numbers in () = men's sizes. Color alternative 2 is in [ ] and italics. Knit the sweater in the round and cut steeks for armholes and neck split.
Cast on 188-200-212 (204-216) sts with natural white [brown] on smaller needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit rib until work measures 6 cm as follows: 1 row with natural white [brown], then change to wine red [natural white]. Change to larger circular needles and knit Pattern 1, increasing 60-64-68 (60-64) sts evenly distributed on the first row = 248-264-280 (264-280) sts. Attach a marker at the other side; front and back = 124-132-140 (132-140) sts. Start at the appropriate arrow on the chart and knit Pattern across the front, start at the arrow again and knit Pattern across the back. After Pattern 1 repeat Pattern 2. When the work measures 33-35-36 (39-41) cm , inc 5 sts at each side (these sts are for the steeks and are not knitted into the pattern). At the same time, when the work measures 33-35-37 (40-43) cm - adjust for complete pattern 2 - repeat Pattern 3 to finished dimensions.

Sweater with round neck: When approximately 18 rows of Pattern 3 remain - the work measures approximately 54-56-58 (61-64) cm - bind off the center front 30-32-32 (32-34) sts for the neck and knit the rest back and forth on needles. Then bind off at each neck edge every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1 time, 1 st 1 time. At the same time, when the work measures 58-60-62 (65-68) cm, bind off the center back 38-40-40 (40-42) sts for the neck. Then bind off 2 sts at each back neck edge on the next row. Bind off after Pattern 3 - the work measures approximately 60-62-64 (67-70) cm.

Sweater with split: When the work measures 40-42-44 (47-50) cm, bind off the center front 12 sts for a split. On the next row cast on 5 sts over the bound-off sts - these sts are for the steek and are not knitted into the pattern. When the work measures 54-56-58 (61-64) cm, bind off the center front 18-20-20 (20-22) sts + 5 steek sts for the neck. Now knit the rest back and forth on needles. Then bind off at each neck edge every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1 time, 1 st 1 time.

Bind off after Pattern 3 - the work measures approximately 60-62-64 (67-70) cm.

Sleeves: Cast on 50-50-54 (54-58) sts on smaller double pointed needles with natural white [brown]; join and knit rib for 5 cm as follows: 1 row natural white [brown] and then wine red [natural white]. Change to larger double pointed needles and Pattern 1, increasing 6-8-4 (4-2) sts evenly distributed on the first row = 56-58-58 (58-60) sts. After the rib, inc 1 st each side of marker 31-30-33 (33-34) times:
Women's S + M and Men's S/M + M/L: every 4th row
Women's L: alternately every 3rd and 4th row
= 118-118-124 (124-128) sts. After Pattern 1 repeat Pattern 2 until the work measures approximately 35-34-33 (39-39) cm - adjust for complete pattern. Knit Pattern 4 once, and then Pattern 5 once. The work measures approximately 50-49-48 (54-54) cm. Then knit 2 cm reverse stockinette stitch for a seam allowance over the cut edge on the body. Bind off.

Assembly:
Sweater with round neck: Sew a marker thread in the center of the steek sts on either side. Sew two machine seams around the marker thread, 1st seam = 1/2 stitch from the marker thread, 2nd seam = 1/2 stitch from first seam. Cut steeks for armholes. Sew shoulder seams. Pick up approximately 104-110 sts around the neck on smaller double pointed needles with wine red [brown] and knit 1 row stockinette stitch, then rib for 6 cm, bind off. Fold the rib over against the wrong side and sew. Sew the sleeves to the body from the right side as follows: Sew alternately a stitch in the last row on the sleeve before the seam allowance and a stitch on the body after the machine seam. Turn the sweater inside out and sew the seam allowance from the sleeve over the cut edge on the body by hand.

Vad olika det är för olika personer. Jag har inte hittat något fel i mönstret men i antalet nystan. Jag beställde 250 gr vinrött och 550 gr naturvitt men när jag har lite kvar på ena axeln fram och hela bakstycket från ärmhålen så fattas det ett nystan vinrött och jag har ett nystan naturvitt för mycket.

Hoe kom ik bij de teltekening van dit patroon? Zowel via mijn laptop als via de iPhone en iPad zie ik geen teltekening.

Hoi Tissa. Het is toegevoegd.

Frida 16.02.2014 - 16:27:

Mönstret är ju inte helt symmetriskt utan olika över och under den stora rutan!

Ilse Irene Grønbæk 16.02.2014 - 11:46:

Jeg er ved at strikke denne trøje og har opdaget en fejl i mønsteret. M3 p37 burde være lig p21 men det er den ikke. Jeg har selv korrigeret på min trøje, men jeg håber da i rette fejlen til fremtidige strikkere. Med venlig hilsen Ilse Grønbæk

Raydene 28.12.2013 - 21:17:

After binding off the neck and finishing the row to the beginning of the round I am confused. 1. Do I cut the yarn and start again at the beginning of the bound off stitches and continue the pattern knitting back and forth and making that the new starting point? 2. Or can I hold the stitches to be bound off as live stitches and do a steek and knit in the round making a steek at the back of the neck as well

DROPS Design 30.12.2013 kl. 15:29:

Dear Mrs Raydene, after binding off sts for neckline on front piece, continue back and forth on all sts, then cast off sts for neckline back piece and cast off remaining sts after Pattern 3. You may slip sts for neckline on a st holder if you rather work that way. You will then pick up sts around neckline for collar. Happy knitting!

Hej! När man kommer till första märktråden ska man fortsätta sticka mönstret enligt diagrammet och inte börja om från pilen, som det står i beskrivningen.Jag gör en medium/large till min man och gjorde som det står men då blir det alltså fel i båda sidorna. Mvh Annelie

Vergelijk ik de trui op de foto met de teltekeningen, dan is het volgens mij correct. De hoekvorm boven de bloem is anders dan onder. Gr. Tine

Jolanda 21.01.2011 - 14:39:

Helaas zit er een foutje in het patroon (althans, zo lijkt me wel) Ik heb het over de 4 driehoekjes. Bovenin zitten ze tegen de bloem aan en onderin 1 regel lager (ik kan eventueel via mail het aangeven op een foto)Op de voorbeelden zit het dan ook blijkbaar "fout" Met vriendelijke groet, Jolanda
