BACK PIECE:
The whole piece is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 103-113-121-135-151-165 sts on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel. Insert a marker in the middle st. Then work a "square" as follows:
Row 1 (= WS): Knit all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): Knit all sts.
Row 3: Knit all sts.
Row 4: K until 1 st remains before st with marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso and K the rest of row.
Repeat row 1-4, i.e. dec 2 sts every 4 rows. Continue like this until 1 st remains on the needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the last st = 1st square.
Knit up 51-56-60-67-75-82 sts in the cast on edge on one side of the first "square" (start from the edge and continue towards the middle to and with st with marker from 1st square - see chart for knitting direction). Then cast on 52-57-61-68-76-83 new sts = 103-113-121-135-151-165 sts on needle. Insert a marker in the middle st and work 2nd square as 1st square.

UPPER PIECE:
Knit up 102-112-120-134-150-164 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel in cast on edge on the 2 squares (if it is necessary to knit up 1 st between the "squares" to avoid holes, dec this st on next row). Insert a marker, measure the piece from here. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work back and forth. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm from marker, inc 1 st in each side, repeat inc every 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-2-2 times = 108-118-126-138-154-168 sts. When piece measures 12 cm from marker, cast off 3-3-3-4-5-6 sts at the beg of the next 2 rows for armholes = 102-112-120-130-144-156 sts. Continue to work back and forth.
SIZE S + M + L + XL: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 13 cm, inc 1 st in each side for shoulder, repeat inc every 2-3-3-8 cm a total of 9-6-6-3 times = 120-124-132-136 sts.
SIZE XXL: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 14 cm, inc 1 st in each side for shoulder = 146 sts.
SIZE XXXL: No inc.
ALL SIZES: AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 28-29-30-31-32-33 cm from marker, cast off the middle 22-24-24-26-26-28 sts for neck (= 49-50-54-55-60-64 sts remain on each shoulder) and finish each shoulder separately. Continue back and forth until piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35-36 cm from marker. Cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 103-113-121-135-151-165 sts on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel and work a "square" as explained on back piece.
Then knit up 52-57-61-68-76-83 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) along one side in the cast on edge on the square (see chart for knitting direction). Insert a marker, measure piece from here. Then work in garter st back and forth. When piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm from marker, inc in the side as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10-10-10-10-9-9 cm from marker, beg to dec for neck. Dec 1 st at beg of next row from WS, repeat dec every 6-6-6-6-8-8 rows a total of 12-13-13-14-14-15 times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm from marker, cast off for armhole as on back piece. Then inc for shoulder in the side as on back piece.
When all cast offs, dec and inc are done, 49-50-54-55-60-64 sts remain on needle for shoulder. Continue back and forth until piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35-36 cm from marker. Cast off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as left front piece but reversed.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

FRONT BAND:
Knit up 74-80-84-92-96-104 sts along front edge on right front piece up to where dec for neck starts (insert a marker), then knit up 126-134-140-146-156-164 sts around the neck and 74-80-84-92-96-104 sts down along the edge on left front piece (adjust no of sts on 1st row if necessary). K back and forth on needle for approx. 1 cm. Now cast off for 5-5-5-6-6-6 button holes on right front band by working next row from RS as follows:
Work 15-17-17-19-18-16 sts, * cast off 1 st, work 13-14-15-13-14-16 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 4-4-4-5-5-5 times, cast off 1 st, work 2 sts (marker is here), then K the rest of the row. On next row cast on 1 new st over the cast off sts. Continue back and forth until front band measures approx. 2½ cm. Loosely cast off.

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle in garter st, i.e. K all rows. Worked top down, this is done to make it easier to adjust to desired length (NOTE! the sleeve might be somewhat longer when worn).
Cast on 89-93-99-103-107-113 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on pointed needle size 3 mm with Fabel. Work back and forth until piece measures approx. 4 cm. Now start to dec 1 st in each side, repeat dec every 2½-2½-2-2-2-1½ cm a total of 16-17-19-20-21-23 times = 57-59-61-63-65-67 sts on needle. Continue until piece measures approx. 49-49-48-48-47-46 cm (NOTE! Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of broader shoulder width) or until desired measurements. Loosely cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew in sleeves. Sew sleeve and side seams in one inside 1 edge st. Sew on buttons.

Jeg er ved at give op allerede fra start. Er det en fejl? Skulle der have stået 2 masker tilbage før mærket? Skal først stykke (ryg) komme til at ligne en rombe?

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 11:25:

Hej, Nej der skal ikke være fejl i opskriften. Du ser på måleskitsen nederst i opskriften hvordan formen skal se ud. Husk at du skal have strikkefastheden til at stemme for at få den rigtige form. God fornøjelse!

Annett Larsen 16.01.2018 - 18:27:

Kan man strikke trøjen på pind 3½ efter maskeantallet for en størrelse mindre?

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 16:55:

Hej Annett, nej det bliver nok svært på grund af de forskellige vinkler... men du er naturligvis velkommen til at prøve. Held og lykke!

Mette Fjordbach 12.01.2017 - 18:27:

Hejsa. Virkelig pæn trøje. Jeg kan se der er mange kommentarer og nogen der ikke forstår opskriften. Er der fejl og er de evt rettet i opskriften nu? Vil gerne strikke denne lækre model 😊 Vh Mette

DROPS Design 17.01.2017 kl. 14:39:

Hej Mette. Om der var fejl i opskriften, saa burde det vaere rettet til og staa under RETTELSER. God fornöjelse

Bonjour. je suis au tout début du modèle. j'ai tricoté le 1er "carré", j'ai suivi les instructions mais mon carré a plutôt la forme d'une "goutte" d'eau. est-ce que c'est normal? merci pour votre aide. Marion

DROPS Design 10.12.2015 kl. 10:05:

Bonjour Marion, c'est exact, vous avez fait le 1er motif - il doit ressembler aux 1. et 2. du schéma. Bon tricot!

Tommiesje1 . 13.03.2015 - 11:41:

Vraag:bij het maken van een "vierkant"is mij niet iets duidelijk;volgens patroon minder je 2 steken per 4 nld.Maar die minder je alleen VOOR de middensteek,dan wodrt het toch geen vierkant.?Maar trekt naar 1 kant.?!gaarne Uw antwoord..

DROPS Design 13.03.2015 kl. 15:32:

Hoi Tommiesje. Als je de beschrijving van nld 4 leest, dan minder je 1 st voor en 1 st na de markeerdraad (= 2 st in totaal) en dus aan beide kanten.

Gesa 14.02.2014 - 16:12:

Hi, the same has happened to me... I have literally spent hours trying to find where to cast on the stitches for the second triangle ,until finally I have decided to knit the second triangle separately and to attach it later.

Donna Nickerson 03.02.2014 - 23:15:

I am on the back piece & working on the second square I am not understanding how to pick up and knit do you have a chart for the backside?

DROPS Design 04.02.2014 kl. 09:54:

Dear Mrs Nickerson, squares for back piece are numbered on the measurement chart, place your first square as in the chart (arrow shows knitting direction) and pick up sts along right side of the 1st square, along cast on edge starting from the bottom to the mid st (the one with marker in 1st square). Happy knitting!

Por que hay tan poco material en español?

DROPS Design NL 17.02.2011 - 10:19:

Hoi Corrie - even een toevoeging: De keuze voor ribbelsteek wordt gemaakt voor bijna alle "modulaire" modellen, dus die met stukken eraan en vierkanten erin. Omdat het makkelijk rekenen is met meerderen in ribbelst en omdat het niet omkrult. Het is wel heel belangrijk dat het hier heel erg om de stekenverhouding in de HOOGTE gaat dus om het verschil in aantal naalden voor 10 cm, niet st in de breedte. Je breit bijna 2 keer zo veel nld ribbelsteken in de hoogte dan tricotsteken. Gr. Tine
