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

TUNIC:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 408-448-488-528-568-608 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with dark grey and work diagram M.1. After diagram M.1, there are 204-224-244-264-284-304 sts on needle. Then work K over K and P over P for 2 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and K 1 round while at the same time dec 24-26-28-30-32-34 sts evenly = 180-198-216-234-252-270 sts. Insert 4 markers in the piece as follows (round beg in the side): Work 20-22-24-26-28-30 sts, insert a marker, work 50-55-60-65-70-75 sts, insert a marker, work 40-44-48-52-56-60 sts, insert a marker, work 50-55-60-65-70-75 sts, insert a marker, work the last 20-22-24-26-28-30 sts on the round (markers show where to dec sts). Then work diagram M.2 (= 10-11-12-13-14-15 repetitions on the round), then continue in stocking st and with dark grey. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 20-21-21-22-22-23 cm, dec 1 st on each side of the 4 markers – see DECREASE TIP (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every 8th round a total of 6 times = 132-150-168-186-204-222 sts. When piece measures 42-43-43-44-44-45 cm, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time inc 28-26-40-38-36-50 sts evenly = 160-176-208-224-240-272 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Then work rib as follows from the side (= beg of round): P 1, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with P 1. When rib measures 8-8-9-9-10-10 cm, work next round as follows: 5-5-9-9-9-13 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, work 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib as before, 10-10-18-18-18-26 sts in garter st, 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib as before, and the last 5-5-9-9-9-13 sts in garter st. Continue like this until 4 rounds in garter st (2 ridges) have been worked over sts in each side. Work next round as follows: Cast off 1-1-5-5-5-9 sts (for armhole), 4 sts in garter st, 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib, 4 sts in garter st, cast off 2-2-10-10-10-18 sts (for armhole), 4 sts in garter st, 70-78-86-94-102-110 sts in rib as before, 4 sts in garter st and cast off 1-1-5-5-5-9 sts (= armhole), cut the thread. Finish front and back piece separately.



BACK PIECE:
= 78-86-94-102-110-118 sts. Continue in rib and 4 sts in garter st in each side. When rib section measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm, inc 1 st in each side towards armhole - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 4 rows a total of 6 times = 10 sts in garter st in each side and 90-98-106-114-122-130 sts in total. When rib section measures 26-27-29-30-32-33 cm, cast off the middle 26-26-26-34-34-34 sts for neck = 32-36-40-40-44-48 sts remain on each shoulder. Work 2 cm over each shoulder. Then either cast off or slip sts on a stitch holder. It will look nicer if you sew the shoulder seams tog without casting off first.

FRONT PIECE:
= 78-86-94-102-110-118 sts. Continue as follows: 4 sts in garter st, 30-34-38-42-46-50 sts in rib, 10 sts in garter st, 30-34-38-42-46-50 sts in rib and 4 sts in garter st. When 6 rows in garter st have been worked over the middle 10 sts, divide the piece in the middle for split. Finish each part separately.

RIGHT SIDE:
= 39-43-47-51-55-59 sts. Then work 5 sts in garter st towards the neck and 4 sts in garter st towards the armhole. At the same time when piece measures 12-12-13-13-14-14 cm, inc 1 st towards the armhole as on back piece. Repeat inc every 4 rows a total of 6 times. There are now 10 sts in garter st towards the armhole and 45-49-53-57-61-65 sts in total. When piece measures 21-22-23-24-25-26 cm, cast off on every row from neck: 9 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-1-1-2-2-2 times and 1 st 2-2-2-4-4-4 times = 32-36-40-40-44-48 sts remain on shoulder. When rib section measures 28-29-31-32-34-35 cm, either cast off sts or slip them on a stitch holder.

LEFT SIDE:
Work as right side but with inc, dec and cast offs in the opposite side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.
NECK EDGE: Knit up approx. 66 to 86 sts around the neck on circular needle size 3.5 mm with dark grey. K 3 rows back and forth, cast off with K.

Mich würde interessieren, ob die Wolle mit dem hohen Schurwollanteil kratzt oder nicht. Sieht super aus, das Teil!!

Liebe Widera, dies ist wirklich persönnlich, lieber direkt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden besprechen. Sie werden Ihnen helfen können. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo liebes Garnstudio-Team,in der anleitung steht nach 22cm auf beiden seiten abnehmen sind da die 22cm ab anschlag oder ab M2 gemeint? lg

DROPS Design 22.02.2014 kl. 10:16:

Liebe Sabine, es sind 22 cm ab dem Anschlag gemeint. Soweit nicht anders angegeben, beziehen sich die Maßangaben immer auf die Gesamtlänge, d.h. die Länge ab Anschlag. Viel Spaß beim Weiterstricken!

Martina Van Lück 03.03.2012 - 13:30:

Hallo liebes Garnstudio-Team, was ist eine Markierung und was bedeutet "Markierung einziehen"? Vielen Dank schon mal für Eure Hilfe.

Skøn, lækker tunika. Nem og alligevel lidt udfordrende (mønstret) at strikke. Er blevet en ynglingstrøje.

Ineke 08.06.2011 - 19:12:

Een heel leuk model vooral voor de jongeren .Door dit model willen ze wel weer gebreiden truien aan.

Petra 01.06.2011 - 17:30:

This one is beautiful too. I think I would make the bottom ribbed like the top rib though as I think it would be more fitted that way and maybe make it abit longer too :)

Gaëlle 31.05.2011 - 14:14:

Très féminin et d'une grande légèreté. J'aime beaucoup.

Nasy 29.05.2011 - 21:05:

I would make it a little longer, so I can wear with leggings more comfortable :D

Bayol 29.05.2011 - 14:46:

C'est très mignon
