--------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 150-160-180-190-210-230 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Paris. Work M.1. After M.1, work M.2 (1 repetition = 10 sts).
After M.2 switch to circular needle size 5 mm and continue in stocking st and on 1st round insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Work 17-19-23-25-30-34 sts, insert marker 1, work 41-42-44-45-45-47 sts, insert marker 2, work 34-38-46-50-60-68 sts, insert marker 3, work 41-42-44-45-45-47 sts, insert marker 4 and work the remaining sts = 17-19-23-25-30-34 sts. Move the markers upwards when working.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 15-16-16-17-17-17 cm, dec 1 st after marker 1 and 3 and before marker 2 and 4 - READ DECREASE TIP- (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3-3-3½-5-5½-6 cm a total of 7-7-7-5-5-5 times = 122-132-152-170-190-210 sts.
When piece measures 36-37-40-41-43-45 cm, inc 1 st after marker 1 and 3 and before marker 2 and 4 - READ INCREASE TIP - (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every other round a total of 4-4-3-3-3-3 times = 138-148-164-182-202-222 sts.
Now remove the 4 markers and insert 2 new markers as follows: Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 69-74-82-91-101-111 sts (= mid of each side). When piece measures 40-42-44-43-45-47 cm, P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round over the middle 14-14-16-18-22-22 sts in each side (i.e. over 7-7-8-9-11-11 sts on each side of both markers). NOTE! Work the remaining sts in stocking st as before. Then cast off the middle 10-10-12-14-18-18 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 5-5-6-7-9-9 sts on each side of both markers) = 59-64-70-77-83-93 sts remain on front and back piece. Cut the thread.

YOKE:
Beg mid back of body (in Sizes S + XL + XXL + XXXL beg with the middle st and in sizes M + L beg with the 2nd of the 2 middle sts). Work on circular needle size 5 mm as follows: K 30-32-35-39-42-47 sts, cast on 46-48-56-56-57-61 new sts (= over one sleeve), K the 59-64-70-77-83-93 sts on front piece, cast on 46-48-56-56-57-61 new sts (= over the other sleeve) and work the remaining 29-32-35-38-41-46 sts = 210-224-252-266-280-308 sts.
Continue to work M.3 (1 repetition = 14 sts). NOTE! See diagram for size! When M.3 has been worked vertically, 120-128-144-152-160-176 sts remain on needle.

NECKLINE:
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Insert a marker after 60-64-72-76-80-88 sts (= mid front). K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 18-18-26-26-26-34 sts evenly = 102-110-118-126-134-142 sts (NOTE! Dec the same no of sts on each side of marker and mid back). P 1 round. Continue in GARTER ST - see explanation above - back and forth on needle from mid back while AT THE SAME TIME working an elevation in the back of neck as follows (start from RS):
Work until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before marker mid front, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before marker in the other side.
Turn piece, tighten thread and work until 32-34-36-38-40-42 sts remain before marker, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 32-34-36-38-40-42 sts remain before marker in the other side.
Turn piece, tighten thread and work until 48-51-54-57-60-63 sts remain before marker, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 48-51-54-57-60-63 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn piece, tighten thread and K until beg of round (= mid back).
Now work M.1 in the round but start on 3rd round in the diagram. When M.1 has been worked vertically, loosely cast off with K over all sts.

Hi there, I am getting really confused by the neckline elevation instructions. Where the pattern says "Work until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before marker mid front, turn piece, tighten thread and work back until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before marker in the other side." There are 2 markers in the piece now. Does that mean that I should do this between the markers, on one side of the piece, then knit around and repeat on the other side of the piece? Many thanks.

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 08:57:

Dear Laura, yes correct, you first work from mid back until 16-17-18-19-20-21sts remain before mid front, turn and work next row until 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts remain before mid front (= on the other side), then turn and work until 32-34-36-38-40-42 sts remain before mid front, turn and work until32-34-36-38-40-42 sts remain before mid front. Work 2 more short rows (until 48-51-54-57-60-63 sts remain before mid front at the end of these both row), then work one more row to mid back (= beg of round). Happy knitting!

SCOLLATURA : inserire segnapunti dopo 60 m. SIGNIFICA CHE LE PRIME 60 MAGLIE LE FACCIO A DIRITTO E DOPO METTO SEGNAPUNTI? \r\nLavorare a diritto un giro: QUALE È L\'INIZIO DEL GIRO? IL SEGNAPUNTI? \r\nCosa si intende nelle righe successive con \"lavorare avanti e indietro\"? German short rows?queste righe di istruzioni non sono per nulla chiare\r\nGrazie

DROPS Design 05.07.2018 kl. 13:37:

Buongiorno Ermanna. Sulla scollatura, l'inizio del giro rimane sempre al centro sul dietro. Quando trova l'indicazione di lavorare avanti e indietro, deve lavorare un'alzata sul dietro come spiegato nelle righe successive, nel testo. Buon lavoro!

Und nach den Kraus rechts wo werden die 6 Maschen auf beiden Seiten abgenommen

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 10:49:

Liebe Frau Wernet, es sind 6 M vor jedem Markierer + 6 M nach jedem Markierer = 12 M auf beiden Seiten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Carolyne Wernet 06.05.2018 - 22:49:

Wo beginnen die 8maschen jeweils auf beiden Seiten \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nÜber den Maschenmakierer hinaus oder vorne dran

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 09:39:

Liebe Frau Wernet, nach 44 cm stricken Sie die 16 M (= 8 M vor jedem Markierer + 8 M nach jedem Markierer) kraus rechts (= 1 Rd li, 1 Rd re, 1 Rd li). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ermanna Piras 16.04.2018 - 14:14:

Per favore cosa significa "fare attenzione alla tensione del lavoro" quando si cambia il numero di ferri,da 4 a 5? Ha qualche significato particolare? Grazie

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 14:21:

Buongiorno Ermanna. E' un'indicazione che viene data in tutti i modelli e che invita a verificare che la tensione rimanga la stessa per tutto il lavoro, così da essere sicuri di ottenere il capo della misura necessaria. Buon lavoro!

Jessica 22.02.2017 - 15:04:

Liebes Dropsteam, bei M2 beginnt die 2. Reihe mit einer rechten Masche von einer Zopfnadel obwohl ich ja noch gar keine Maschen auf der Zopfnadel habe. Muss ich dann die letzte Masche der Vorreihe auf die Zopfnadel nehmen? Was macht das für einen Sinn?

DROPS Design 22.02.2017 kl. 17:34:

Liebe Jessica, Diagramme sollen Sie von unten nach oben lesen - (bitte hier lesen. Bei der vorletzten Reihe in M.2 sollen Sie die letzte Masche der vorrigen Runde auf der Zopfnadel vor die Arbeit legen, dann 2 re, und 1 re von der Zopfnadel. bei der nächsten Reihe beachten Sie die Reihe nicht zu verschieben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susan Platt 21.06.2016 - 23:38:

I have bought loads of Drops Cotton and downloaded the patterns but I can't work from a chart............can now work in the round but my head just can't get around a chart after 50 years of written patterns :(

DROPS Design 22.06.2016 kl. 09:42:

Dear Mrs Platt, in the diagrams 1 square = 1 st x 1 row, start reading diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round and see text to each symbol above diagram - Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Bodil Engen Lund 24.04.2016 - 20:37:

Holder på å strikke denne flotte toppen. Skal strikke den nest siste omgangen i diagrammet på M2. Skjønner ikke helt hvordan det skal strikkes. M2 består jo av 10 masker som skal repeteres. Kan dere forklare meg maske for maske hvordan dette skal gjøres. Ivrig etter å komme videre snarest mulig 😉 Gleder meg til å fortsette 😃

DROPS Design 25.04.2016 kl. 13:53:

Hei Bodil. Du starter 1 m för starten af denne pind, strik da "sett 1 m på hj.p foran arb, strikk 2 rett, 1 rett fra hj.p" osv, denne "trekant" kommer i overgangen mellem gentagelserne, men strik som der staar og saa afslutter du pinden 1 m för (den som du strikkede först). Haaber du kan fölge mig :-)

Patricia 08.02.2016 - 11:36:

Bonjour, Je fais la taille XL. Je ne comprend pas le diagramme M2, rang 19 : par quoi je commence et je termine le rang ? étant donné que le symbole est coupé. Faut il faire un surjet double au début ou pas ? Je suis bloquée. Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 08.02.2016 kl. 13:56:

Bonjour Patricia, commencez M.2 par la dernière m au début du tour pour faire le surjet double (la m glissée est la dernière m du tour, les 2 m ens à l'end sont les 2 premières m du tour), puis répétez le diagramme tout le tour, vous terminerez par 7 m end, juste avant le surjet double fait au début du tour. Bon tricot!

Leticia Rios 16.06.2015 - 15:03:

El grafico es incorrecto, trabaje como dice y no es como en la foto, se tejer , pero siguiendo sus instrucciones no queda, busqué el original, y no lo encuentro, solo perdí tiempo. ya he tejido otros y si quedan bien. pueden enviarme el grafico correcto? Me gusta mucho Gracias,

DROPS Design 17.06.2015 kl. 09:30:

Hola Leticia, ¿podrías especificar en que parte del diagrama M.1, M.2, M.3 crees que hay un fallo? La traducción de español se corresponde con el diagrama y el diagrama es el original del patrón noruego.
