Pattern instructions

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.
See diagrams M.1 to M.5 (the diagrams show the pattern from RS) 1 square = 14-14-16-16-18-18 sts and 20-20-22-22-24-24 rows.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes. Work the inc sts in the pattern.

Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 152-164-176-192-212-232 sts on circular needle size 5 mm with Nepal. Work 1st round as follows (round beg in the side): Work 3-6-4-8-8-13 sts in diagram M.4, * work 14-14-16-16-18-18 sts in every diagram: M.1, M.2, M.3, M.4 and M.5 *, 6-12-8-16-16-26 sts in diagram M.4 - See chart, repeat from *-* 1 more time, finish with 3-6-4-8-8-13 sts in diagram M.4 (= 6-12-8-16-16-26 sts in diagram M.4 in the side until armholes beg). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue like this until 20-20-22-22-24-24 rounds have been worked (= approx. 9-9-10-10-11-11 cm vertically). Then work as follows: Work 3-6-4-8-8-13 sts in diagram M.4, * work 14-14-16-16-18-18 sts in diagrams M.2, M.3, M.4, M.5 and M.1 *, 6-12-8-16-16-26 sts in diagram M.4, repeat from *-* 1 more time, finish with 3-6-4-8-8-13 sts in diagram M.4.
Continue so that after 20-20-22-22-24-24 rounds (= 1 square vertically) have been worked, the squares between diagram M.4 in each side are shifted one square to the right - See chart.
When piece measures 32-33-34-35-37-39 cm, insert 2 markers in piece as follows: Insert a marker in the middle of sts in diagram M.4 in each side = 3-6-4-8-8-13 sts in diagram M.4 on each side of both markers. Now divide the piece at the markers and finish each part separately.

= 76-82-88-96-106-116 sts. Continue to work back and forth on needle (1st row = RS): Now cast off for armholes in each side on every other row as follows: Cast off 3 sts 1-1-1-1-2-2 times, 2 sts 2-2-2-3-3-4 times and 1 st 2-4-5-5-5-6 times = 58-60-64-68-72-76 sts.
When a total of 4 squares have been worked vertically, work next square as follows: Work diagrams M.4, M.1, M.2, M.3, and finish with diagram M.4. Continue until a total of 5 squares have been worked vertically (piece measures approx. 45-45-50-50-55-55 cm). Then work diagram M.4 over all sts until finished measurements. When piece measures 48-50-52-54-57-60 cm, cast off the middle 24-24-26-26-28-28 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately = 17-18-19-21-22-24 sts on each shoulder. Loosely cast off all sts when piece measures 50-52-54-56-59-62 cm.

= 76-82-88-96-106-116 sts. Work as on back piece.

Worked back and forth on circular needle size 5 mm. Cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (incl 2 edge sts). Work diagram M.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side (1st row = RS). When piece measures 8 cm, inc 1 st - Read explanation above - inside 1 edge st in each side = 2 new sts. Repeat inc every 3-3-3-2½-2½-2cm a total of 13-13-13-14-15-16 times = 62-64-66-70-74-78 sts.
When piece measures 46-46-45-45-44-44 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap), cast off for sleeve cap in each side on every other row as follows: Cast off 3 sts 1-1-1-1-1-2 times, 2 sts 3-3-4-4-4-4 times, and 1 st in each side until piece measures 55 cm in all sizes. Now cast off in each side on every other row as follows: 2 sts 2 times and 3 sts 1 time. Loosely cast off all sts on next row from RS (piece measures approx. 58 cm in all sizes).

Sew the shoulder seams tog. Sew sleeves tog inside 1 edge st and sew in sleeves.

Hola, no entiendo cuando hay que hacer las sisas, rem Los puntos en cada lado en vueltas alternas. Hay que hacer la disminución de los puntos en la misma vuelta?, la siguiente vuelta no disminuir?. Y cuando empiezamos la espalda hay que aumentar un punto para el orillo

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 09:10:

Hola Eva, se divide la labor por la mitad: espalda y delantero. Las disminuciones se trabajan cada 2ª fila y no hay que montar ningún punto orillo ya que el último pt de cada fila será el pt orillo.

Hola, ¿este patrón se puede tejer con agujas rectas? Me da la impresión que sí, pero me presenta dudas los primeros puntos. ¿Por qué se empieza con 3 p del M4 y acaba con 6p

DROPS Design 10.04.2014 kl. 10:37:

Hola M.Jose. El patrón se puede trabajar con ag. rectas. En este caso hay que tejer por separado la parte del delantero y la espalda y añadir 1 pt orillo a cada lado para las costuras. Si lees atentamente el patrón - la vta empieza en el lateral con 3 pts de M.4, después se trabaja el dibujo del delantero (M.1, M.2, M.3, M.4 y M.5), 6 pts de M.4 (3 pts finales del delantero y 3 principales de la espalda), el dibujo de la espalda y la vta se finaliza con 3 pts de M.4.

À 8 cm de hauteur totale, augmenter 1 m – voir ci-dessus – à 1 m lis des bords de chaque côté = 2 augmentations. Répéter ces augmentations 6 fois au total tous les 7cm À 46 cm de hauteur totale , rabattre de chaque côté tous les 2 rangs : 1-fois 3 m, Je voudrais bien qu' on m' explique car j'ai pas fini d' augmenter qu'il faut que je diminue car 8 cm + (6x7 cm) = 50 or diminution emmanchures à 46 je fais une taille M Merci pour la réponse

DROPS Design 30.11.2013 kl. 09:52:

Bonjour Christine, les augmentations (6 fois tous les 7 cm) vont se faire à 8 cm, 15 cm, 22 cm, 29 cm, 36 cm et 43 cm. Ainsi, à 46 cm, vos augmentations seront terminées. Bon tricot!

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, mir will nicht einleuchten, wie der Ärmel in Größe XXL mit 60 M Breite ausreichend Weite zum Einsetzen in das Armloch bekommen soll. Lt. Zeichnung benötigt man 44 cm plus Rundung - und 60 M für eine Breite von mind. 44 cm erscheint mir zu wenig. Können Sie mir da witerhelfen? Vielen Dank für Ihre tolle Wolle und die ansonsten super Anleitungen!!!! Martina Caspers

DROPS Design 29.01.2013 kl. 08:51:

Liebe Frau Caspers, Danke für Ihre Geduld. Ich habe die Frage an das Designteam weitergeleitet. Dort wird die Anleitung nochmals geprüft. Da alle intensiv mit der neuen Kollektion beschäftigt sind, verzögert sich die Antwort leider etwas.

Could you please let me know if Catagorie C is Chunky thickness Thank you

DROPS Design 16.04.2012 kl. 20:25:

C is worsted / aran. E is chunky.

Dorrit Laustsen 08.08.2011 - 21:09:

Jeg mener der må være en fejl i diagrammet, idet der i øverste rapportrække burde have stået M.5, M.1, M.2, M.3, M.4 og ikke M.4 både først og sidst i rapportrækken?

Hola Alma, si el texto "Al Patrón" aparece iluminado, significa que la traducción está disponible. De igual manera, si tiene asignado un número DROPS. En este caso, DROPS 133-10. Disfrútalo!

Alma Monica Ramirez Hernandez 16.06.2011 - 18:16:

Es hermosos ojala pudieran traducir al español el patron

Ina 09.06.2011 - 17:23:

Den vil jeg ha!
