All dec. are done from the RS. The jersey is knitted so the Purl side is the RS this means all dec. are then done from the purl side.

Back piece:
Cast on 86-94-104-114-128 sts (incl. of 1 edge st each side) on needles size 4 mm with Muskat. Knit 4 rows of garter sts. Continue in stocking sts until the piece measures 18-19-19-20-20 cm. Knit 1 row and adjust the number of sts to 82-92-102-112-122 sts. Continue in Rib – see explanation above – with 1 edge st each side. Continue until the piece measures 28-29-30-31-32 cm. Then continue in stocking sts with the purl side as the RS until finish, at the same time on the first row inc. the number of sts to 86-94-104-114-128 sts. When the piece measures 41-43-45-47-49 cm cast off 3 sts each side for the armholes. Continue to cast off on every other row as follows: 3 sts 0-0-0-1-1 times, 2 sts 0-1-3-3-5 times and 1 st 2-2-2-3-4 times = 76-80-82-84-88 sts. Continue in stocking sts (purl side =RS) until the piece measures 56-59-62-65-68 cm. Knit in garter sts over the mid 40-42-42-44-44 sts (knit the other sts as before). Continue this way until the piece measures 57-60-63-66-69 cm and cast off the mid 32-34-34-36-36 sts for the neck. Continue to cast off 1 st towards each neck side – read decreasing tips – on every other row: 2 times = 20-21-22-22-24 sts left for each shoulder. Knit until the piece measures 60-63-66-69-72 cm and cast off loosely.

Front piece:
Cast on and knit as back piece, at the same time when the piece measures 41-44-47-49-52 cm knit in garter sts over the mid 10 sts. After 2 rows split the work into 2 pieces at the mid front and finish each side separately (5 sts of garter sts each side of the neck).

Left front:
Continue to knit until the piece measures 51-54-57-59-62 cm. Then knit 4 rows of garter sts over the 15-16-16-17-17 sts towards the mid front (knit other sts as before) On the following row cast off 13-14-14-15-15 sts towards the mid front of the neck. Continue to dec. 1 st at the neck side on every other row – see decreasing tips: 5 times = 20-21-22-22-24 sts left for the shoulder.

Continue in stocking sts with the knitted side as the RS. At the same time when the piece measures 2 cm inc. 1 st each side on every 2 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-2 times = 62 sts. When the piece measures 7-7-8-8-8 cm continue in Rib with 1 edge st each side – see explanation above. Continue as follows until the piece measures 17-18-19-19-20 cm. Then knit in stocking sts with the purl side as the RS until finish measures. At the same time on the 1st row after the Rib inc. 1 st each side = 64 sts. Continue to inc. 1 st each side on every 7-3.5-3-2-1.5 cm a total of 4-7-9-11-15 times = 72-78-82-86-94 sts. When the piece measures 49-48-48-47-46 cm cast off for the sleeve cap each side on every other row: 4 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3-3-4-4-5 times and 1 st 2-2-2-4-3 times.

Begin je met het boordpatroon op de tricotkant of de averechtse kant?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:17:

Hallo P. van Dijk, Het maakt op zich niet uit aan welke kant je begint, maar als de rechte tricotsteek van het boordpatroon maar op de voorkant komt. Dus de naalden van het boordpatroon op de voorkant is alle steken recht. (Op de achterkant 5 recht, 5 averecht)

P.van Dijk 29.04.2018 - 17:29:

Is op de afbeelding de buitenkant van de trui de tricotkant?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:20:

Hallo P. van Dijk, Het onderste deel, dus onder de taille (/boordsteek) is tricotsteek, het bovenste deel is averechte tricotsteek.

Leonie De Vries 09.03.2017 - 15:37:

Dank voor uw informatie. Heb het werk gecorrigeerd en het klopt!!!

Leonie De Vries 09.03.2017 - 10:51:

Kant bij een hoogte van 49-48-48-47-46 cm af voor de mouwkop aan weerskanten in elke 2e nld: 1 x 4 st, 3-3-4-4-5 x 2 st en 2-2-2-4-3 x 1 st. Kant vervolgens steeds 2 st af aan weerskanten tot een hoogte van 55-55-56-56-56 cm, en kant daarna nog 1 x 4 st af aan weerskanten. Kant de resterende st af. De mouw heeft een totale lengte van ca 56-56-57-57-57 cm. Moet ik daarna steeds 2 steken afkanten, dan hou ik geen steken meer over???

DROPS Design 09.03.2017 kl. 13:50:

Hoi Leonie. Klopt je stekenverhouding in de hoogte. Je hebt bijvoorbeeld in de kleinste maat 72 st en kant in 12 naalden 24 st af 48 st over. Je zit dan ongeveer op 51 cm hoogte en moet nog maar 4 cm met 2 st afkanten aan elke zijde. Het zou nooit alle st moeten zijn.

Mette Jensen 22.12.2016 - 20:12:

Her må det være noe feil med maskeantall etter felling til arm. jeg får det overhode ikke til å stemme.

DROPS Design 30.12.2016 kl. 13:03:

Hei Mette. Hvilken str drejer det sig om?

Nancy White 28.01.2015 - 19:52:

I read April's comment regarding the sleeves being too big. Your comments on this. I am ready to begin sleeve work and need to decide which way to go. I am using size small with medium length.

DROPS Design 29.01.2015 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs White, you will find all measurements in cm in measurement chart, remember to check and keep your tension while working. You can then adjust according to personal taste. Happy knitting!

Nancy White 06.10.2014 - 15:35:

Regarding the instructions for the Back piece: It says…."When piece measures 43 cm bind off 3 sts each side for the armholes…(I understand this)..Continue to bind off on every other row as follows: 3 sts 0-0-0-1-1 times, 2 st 0-1-3-3-5 times etc. Could you explain this last step in detail?

DROPS Design 07.10.2014 kl. 08:57:

Dear Mrs White, in size M (43 cm), your firt bind off 3 sts each side then 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 80 sts. Happy knitting!

April Williams 16.02.2014 - 22:31:

I started to make the sleeves as the pattern says but found that they were way too loose. I am pulling it out and using 22 less stitches.

DROPS Design NL 24.10.2013 - 09:02:

Elke aanpassing van steken heeft invloed op de maat. Ons advies: brei een proeflapje van beide soorten steken en vergelijk ze voordat u kiest. Met r en av in plaats van r en ribbelst zal het werk smaller worden.

Rita 23.10.2013 - 14:03:

Hoi, Tinneke ,zal wel iets meer aanspannen, dit kun je verhelpen door de boord met iets meer steken te breien en die na de boord terug af te kanten.
