REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Work 6 rows garter st on all sts and now continue in moss st – SEE ABOVE. When piece measures 46-54-61 (71-76) cm cast on new sts each side for sleeves at the end of every row: 4 sts 1 time, 5 sts 1-1-1 (2-2) times and 9-10-12 (12-16) sts 1 time = 68-74-82 (94-106) sts. Incorporate inc sts in moss st as you go along.
NOTE! After the last inc work 3 sts each side (= sleeve edges) in garter st.
When piece measures 54-63-71 (82-88) cm continue as follows: 3 garter sts, 19-22-25 (31-37) moss st, 24-24-26 (26-26) garter sts (= mid back), 19-22-25 (31-37) moss sts, 3 garter sts. After 6 rows garter st mid back cast off the middle 12-12-14 (14-14) sts for neck and complete each side separately. Slip sts on the right side on a stitch holder.

LEFT FRONT PIECE: = 28-31-34 (40-46) sts. Continue in moss st with 6 garter sts towards neckline and 3 garter sts towards sleeve edge. When piece measures 58-67-75 (86-92) cm insert a marker = mid shoulder – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

Continue in moss sts with 6 garter sts on front band until piece measures approx 18-19-20 (21-22) cm (fold piece by marker on shoulder to make sure there is an equal amount of moss st rows on front and back piece). Work 6 rows garter st on all sts and continue in stocking st with 6 garter sts on front band. AT THE SAME TIME on first row inc 2 sts evenly (do not inc on front band) = 21-23-25 (26-28) sts. When piece measures approx 35-41-46 (52-56) cm slip sts on a stitch holder – adjust so that next row is from RS.

When piece measures 35-41-46 (52-56) cm – adjust to left front piece – slip sts from left front piece in on the same needle = 42-46-50 (52-56) sts.

Hei. Jeg holder på med venstre side, og har akkurat økt med 1m. Har brukt øketipset deres ved å øke med kast men hvordan strikkes denne vridd? Har dere en video på det? Hilsen en nybegynner :)

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 14:56:

Hei Vt. Når du strikker kastet vridd strikker du i den bakerste maskebuen – dette gjøres for at det ikke skal bli hull i arbeidet. Her er en video av fremegangsmåte. God fornøyelse

I would like to knit just the upper part of the pattern to have a sweater. Is it possible? Where should I begin?

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 13:01:

Dear Anna, we are unfortunately not able to adapt each our pattern to every single request. Please contact the store where you bought your yarn for any individual assistance. Happy knitting!

Søs Jørgensen 21.11.2017 - 12:48:

Hej er ved at strikke kørepose med perlestrik og synes det har været rimeligt nem, men nu er der lige et spørgsmål ang venstre side, jeg skal slå 7 masker op mod midt foran, er det rigtigt forstået af mig, hvis jeg slår dem op ind til halsen og derefter strikker retstrik over de nye masker + de to der er taget ud og de seks der var der i forvejen? Håber mit spørsmål er til at forstå. Vh Søs Jørgensne

DROPS Design 05.12.2017 kl. 15:01:

Hej Søs, ja det stemmer, de 7 nye masker er dem som danner forkanten på forstykket og 6 af dem strikkes i retstrik mod midt foran. God fornøjelse!

Miriam 08.08.2017 - 23:13:

Hei! Jeg forstår ikke hvor jeg skal øke de 7 maskene på venstre sidestykke. Står i slutten av pinnen. Med de 3 erme maskene?

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 10:40:

Hei Miriam. I 7 nye maskene skal legges opp på slutten av pinnen mot midt foran (de nye maskene er stolpen mot midt foran). Deretter fortsettes det med perlestrikk med 6 m rille mot midt foran (= stolpe). De 3 erm maskene er på motsatt side. God Fornøyelse!

Ralo 07.08.2017 - 20:11:

Hvor skal jeg begynne å ta opp masker til hetta,og hvor skal jeg avslutte?ISkal jeg begynne i starten av rillestrikket og avslutte før rillestrikket i andre enden?

DROPS Design 08.08.2017 kl. 14:04:

Hei Ralo. Du starter midt foran med å strikke opp masker i ytterste ledd av ytterste maske fra retten, og su strikker opp masker rundt hele halsen. God Fornøyelse!

Rannveig Løland 07.08.2017 - 20:06:

Hvor skal jeg starte og hvor skal jeg avslutte med å ta opp masker til hetten?Skal jeg starte i begynnelsen av rillestrikket og avslutte før rillestrikket?

DROPS Design 15.08.2017 kl. 09:31:

Hei Rannveig. Du starter i begynnelsen av rillen (midt foran) og avslutter i siste maske i rillestrikk på andre siden. God Fornøyelse!

Erica Inman 03.07.2017 - 02:08:

Should this pattern not read to slip the stitches from right hand needle (not the left) when joining the fronts together and overlapping the front bands? It does not make any sense that you would slip all 42 stitches onto the right hand needle!!

DROPS Design 03.07.2017 kl. 10:05:

Dear Mrs Inman, at the end of back piece, keep the last 28-46 sts (see size) on row seen from RS on the nedle and slip the 28-46 sts at the beg of row from RS on a thread/st holder for right shoulder. You will first work the sts on left shoulder (the sts after the cast off sts for neck). Happy knitting!

Witam, mam pytanie dotyczące nabierania oczek na rękawy (tył): rozumiem, że należy najpierw nabrać oczka z jednej strony druta (wg filmu "Cast on new sts at side of work", przerobić ten rządek, a potem dodać tak samo oczka z drugiej strony druta na drugi rękaw? Z góry dziękuję za odpowiedź i pozdrawiam :)

DROPS Design 15.03.2017 kl. 14:27:

Witaj Joanno! Jest dokładnie tak jak piszesz. Powodzenia!

Petra Smith 07.02.2017 - 06:29:

BACK PIECE.......– AT THE SAME TIME dec 4 sts evenly on the last row = 32-36-40 (42-46) sts. When piece measures 46-54-61 (71-76) cm [18”-21 ¼”-24” (28”-30”)] cast on new sts each side for sleeves at the end of every row: 4 sts 1 time, 5 sts 1-1-1 (2-2) times and 9-10-12 (12-16) sts 1 time = 68-74-82 (94-106) sts. - I'm making the smallest size and I don't have 68 sts, only 64. I think you forgot that we had to decrease 4 stitches after knitting the 6 rows garter st.

DROPS Design 07.02.2017 kl. 09:23:

Dear Mrs Smith, number of sts is correct, there are 32 sts before sleeves, then inc 4 sts + 5 sts + 9 sts for sleeve = 18 sts for each sleeve. 32+ 18+18 = 68 sts. Happy knitting!
