Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

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!

Rib: *K1 into back of loop, P1 *, repeat from *-*.
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.

Body: The jumper is worked in the round on circular needle and cut for armholes afterwards. Cast on 174-192 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with no 347 and work 5 cm rib. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm and work 2 rounds stocking st, and now continue in pattern as follows: * M.1 + M.2 * 3 times. Finish with 2 rounds stocking st in no 347 and cast off.

Sleeve: Cast on 38-40 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with no 347 and work 6 cm rib. Change to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and work 2 rounds stocking st, and then continue in pattern as follows: * M.1 + M.2 * 2 times. At the same time inc 2 sts mid under arm on every other round 26-28 times = 90-96 sts. After completed pattern work 1 repeat of M.1, 3-5 rounds stocking st with no 347 and then 5 rounds in reverse stocking st (for sewing sleeve to body piece). Cast off.

Assembly: Measure width of sleeve at the top (approx 30 cm) and insert a marking thread each side of jumper to mark the 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 = 14-16 cm. Pick up approx 78-84 sts round the neck on double pointed needles size 3 mm with no 347 and K 5 rounds, P 1 round (folding edge), and K 5 rounds. Cast off and fold edge double towards WS and fasten. 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.
