Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

For that purpose, each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you, which you will find at the bottom of the page.

We have also step-by-step lessons to help you understand some of the techniques we use in our patterns. You'll find them here!

Pattern: See diagram. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS and the entire pattern is worked in stocking st. English translations for the wording in diagrams are given at the bottom of this pattern and they are given in the vertical order in which they appear in the diagram.
Rib: * K1 into back of loop, P1 *, repeat from *-*.

Body: The jumper is worked in the round on circular needle and cut for armholes afterwards. Cast on 180-186-190 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with navy blue and work 5 cm rib. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and K 1 round, at the same time inc 48-54-62 sts evenly on round = 228-240-252 sts. Remember the knitting tension! Continue in M.1 (beg by arrow and work pattern on front piece, beg by arrow again and repeat pattern on back piece) until piece measures 27-27-28 cm (adjust to pattern), then M.2 (beg by arrow and work pattern on front piece, beg by arrow again and repeat pattern on back piece), M.3 (beg by arrow and work pattern on front piece, beg by arrow again and repeat pattern on back piece), M.4 and now complete piece in navy blue. At the same time when piece measures 32-32-33 cm inc 5 sts each side (to be cut for armhole afterwards and not included in pattern). When piece measures 57-57-58 cm cast off the middle 40 sts mid front for neck and complete piece back and forth on needle. Cast off to shape the neckline on every other row: 2 sts 1 time, 1 st 2 times. When piece measures 61-61-62 cm cast off the middle 46 sts for neck mid back and cast off 1 st on neckline on next row. Cast off remaining sts when piece measures 62-62-63 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 46-46-48 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with navy blue and work 5 cm rib. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and K a round, at the same time inc 12-14-12 sts evenly on round = 58-60-60 sts. Continue in M.1, at the same time inc 2 sts mid under arm a total of 31 times on every *3rd and 4th * round alternately = 120-122-122 sts. When piece measures 43 cm work M.2 (place a pattern repeat mid upper sleeve) and then complete piece in off-white. When piece measures 50 cm work 2 cm in reverse stocking st (for sewing sleeve to body piece). Cast off.

Assembly: Insert a marking thread in the middle of the inc sts for armhole. Sew 2 seams on a sewing machine around the marking thread, 1st seam = ½ st from the MT, 2nd seam = ½ st from the 1st seam. Cut for armholes. Sew the shoulder seams. Pick up approx 106 sts round the neck on circular needle size 2.5 mm with navy blue, work 3 cm stocking st, cast off. Set in sleeves as follows: sew the last row in stocking st on sleeves to row after machine seam on armhole. Turn jumper inside out and fasten piece in reverse stocking st on sleeve to body piece.
