NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (in the round): K 1 round, P 1 round.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1. The diagram shows 1 pattern repeat and the entire pattern is worked in stocking st. NOTE: When working Fabel in M.1, we’ve used an orange section of the ball.

DECREASING TIP-1:
Dec on each side of marker at front as follows: work row until 3 sts before marker, K2 tog, K2 (marker sits between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.

DECREASING TIP-2:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
JUMPSUIT:
Worked from bottom of legs towards the top.

LEG (without buttons):
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 62-70-76 (84-86) sts with blue/turquoise mix Alpaca on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work 2 cm garter st – SEE ABOVE. Change to Fabel and continue in stocking st. Insert a marker at beg of round = inside of leg.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm inc 1 st on each side of marker on every 4-6-6 (6-9) round a total of 9-9-10 (10-10) times = 80-88-96 (104-106) sts. When piece measures 14-18-21 (23-30) cm divide the piece by marker and continue back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip both legs on the same circular needle afterwards) – AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 new st each side for seam = 82-90-98 (106-108) sts.
When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm cast off 3 sts each side = 76-84-92 (100-102) sts. Put piece aside and knit the other leg in the same way.

LEG (with buttons):
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 64-72-78 (86-88) sts (includes 1 edge st each side) with blue/turquoise mix Alpaca on circular needle size 2.5 mm and work 2 cm garter st back and forth on needle – SEE ABOVE.
Change to Fabel and continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st each side.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm inc 1 st each side on every 4-6-6 (6-9) row a total of 9-9-10 (10-10) times = 82-90-98 (106-108) sts. When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm cast off 3 sts each side = 76-84-92 (100-102) sts. Put piece aside and knit the other leg in the same way.

BODY PIECE:
Slip both legs on the same circular needle size 2.5 mm = 152-168-184 (200-204) sts. Insert 1 marker mid front and 1 marker mid back – round beg mid back. Continue in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 sts mid front – SEE DECREASING TIP-1 – and repeat the dec on every other round a total of 6 times = 140-156-172 (188-192) sts.
Remove marker at front. When piece measures 30-37-45 (50-57) cm work shortened rows at back as follows (to make pants wider at the back) – beg by marker mid back: Work 12 sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread, work 24 sts, turn piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread. Continue like this, working 12 more sts before each turn another 8-10-10 (12-12) times. Now work 1 round on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-12-10 (8-12) sts evenly on round = 126-144-162 (180-180) sts. Remove marker mid back.

After M.1 complete piece in turquoise garter st – AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 6-6-6 (8-8) sts evenly (dec equal amount of sts front and back) = 120-138-156 (172-172) sts.

Wat zijn de kleuren verhoudingen? zie alleen een tekening van M1 en niet hoe de kleuren in het pakje zijn verwerkt, zie het wel op de foto.

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 15:10:

Hoi Thora. Dit is het kleurverloop in het garen. Kijk ook op het kleurenoverzicht van DROPS Fabel hier

Malika 10.07.2016 - 14:46:

Danke, das war genau die Info, die ich brauchte.

Malika 08.07.2016 - 18:11:

2. Dann soll man in jeder R 12M (unabhängig von der Größe???) mehr stricken, d.h. hin 12M, rück 24M, erneut hin 24+12M, erneut rück 36+12M usw. ist das richtig? Dann komme ich doch in diesen 8 Malen in der kleinsten Größe (152M insg.) auf mehr M, als ich auf der Nadel habe, nämlich 16x12M=192M. Das bedeutet, dass sich die M an der Vorderseite irgendwann überschneiden. Das wirkt auf mich nicht logisch. Könnt ihr mir da weiterhelfen? Vielen herzlichen Dank!

DROPS Design 09.07.2016 kl. 14:50:

2. Teil der Frage: Sie stricken jeweils 12 M mehr und kommen somit nach der 8. Wdh auf 120 M (8 x 12 M = 96 M + 24 M, die Sie schon auf der Nadel hatten). Die nächste R stricken Sie über alle 140 M und nehmen dabei gleichmässig verteilt 14 M ab, Sie haben danach also noch 126 M auf der Nadel.

Malika 08.07.2016 - 18:06:

Hallo, ich bin an der Stelle nach 30 cm, an der es heißt, 12M Stricken, dann drehen, 24 M stricken. Hier habe ich gleich zwei Fragen: 1. Das soll man dann in der kleinsten Größe 8 Mal wiederholen. Heißt das insgesamt hin und rück 8 Mal oder 4 mal hin und 4 mal rück?

DROPS Design 09.07.2016 kl. 14:46:

Liebe Malika, es wird 8 x insgesamt wiederholt, also 4 x in der Hin-R und 4 x in der Rück-R

Lu 17.05.2016 - 11:15:

Hallo, ich habe mit einem Bein in der kleinsten Größe des Stramplers angefangen. Die 62 Maschen, die man anschlagen soll, kommen mir aber riesig vor und ergeben auch mehr als 12 cm Beinbreite wie in der Skizze angegeben. Meine Maschenprobe stimmt und ich habe gesehen, dass bei anderen Stramplern fürs Bein weitaus weniger Maschen angeschlagen werden z. B. 38. Ist das weite Bein beim Littel Shepherd so gewollt oder ist da ein Fehler? Vielen Dank für die Hilfe, freundliche Grüße, Lu

DROPS Design 18.05.2016 kl. 17:42:

Liebe Lu, wenn Sie die Maschenprobe einhalten erhalten Sie mit den 62 M 24 cm in der Breite, also 12 cm hinten und vorne. Selbstverständlich können Sie das Bein aber unten auch enger stricken, wenn Ihnen das besser gefällt.

Johanna 25.09.2015 - 14:06:

Hallo, Ich bin an dem Punkt im Strickmuster, wo die Knopflöcher am Vorderteil gestrickt werden sollen. Ich habe mit einer rechten Reihe begonnen, und bin der Anweisung gefolgt (1m. rechts 2 r zusammen, 1 Umschlag, 4 m rechts, 2 r zusammen, 1 Umschlag, 2 m rechts). Danach steht in der Anleitung, man solle 2 Reihen über alle Maschen stricken. Aber durch die eine Reihe mit Umschlägen etc ergibt sich bei mir kein Knopfloch? Was habe ich falsch verstanden? Danke für Aufklärung, Johanna

DROPS Design 19.11.2015 kl. 17:51:

Liebe Johanna, wie man mit einem Umschlag ein kleines Knopfloch strickt, sehen Sie in unserem Tutorialvideo:

Debon 31.05.2015 - 17:15:

Pouvez-vous expliquer où placer les marqueurs au milieu du devant et du dos et comment commencer à tricoter en rond à partir du milieu du dos ? Meri

DROPS Design 01.06.2015 kl. 10:07:

Bonjour Mme Debon, tricotez les mailles d'une des jambes, placez 1 marqueur (= milieu devant), tricotez les mailles de l'autre jambe, placez 1 marqueur (= milieu dos = début du tour) et continuez en rond, en jersey (= tous les rangs à l'endroit). Vous trouverez à droite de la photo sous l'onglet "vidéo" comment tricoter en jersey sur aiguille circulaire et comment placer des marqueurs (fil ou anneaux). Bon tricot!

Selam 04.02.2015 - 21:10:

Hi it says " Continue like this, working 12 more sts before each turn another 8-10-10 (12-12) times" what does that mean, do turn after only 12 st or do I do 12 tune work 24 turn, work 12 tune work 24 turn etc? Please explain clearly.thanks

DROPS Design 05.02.2015 kl. 08:57:

Dear Selam, the short rows start on mid back: work 12 sts from RS, turn and work 24 sts from WS, turn and work 12 sts more ie 24+12= 36 sts on next row from RS, turn and work 12 sts, ie 36+12= 48 sts on next row from WS and so on until you have worked all short rows. Happy knitting!

Selam 03.02.2015 - 17:16:

Hi i am working on the body and wondered how many cm there shoukd be between the decreease on the front mid to the short rows decrease round 35cm for all sizes? Thanks

DROPS Design 04.02.2015 kl. 08:35:

Dear Selam, the short rows on back piece should be worked when piece measures 30-37-45 (50-57) cm - dec on mid front should be done. Happy knitting!

Amanda Aronsen 13.11.2014 - 19:58:

Jeg finner ikke i oppskriften når man skal bytte farge? Eller diagrammer for mønsteret på bena?

DROPS Design 14.11.2014 kl. 16:44:

Hej Amanda. Benene er strikket med DROPS Fabel som er et multifarvet printgarn. Se ogsaa farvekortet her. Du skal derfor ikke skifte farve og garn (Alpaca) för du er faerdig med benene.
