GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

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

Worked in the round in a circle from mid back.
Cast on 8 sts with Verdi and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 7mm / US 10½. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid up towards neck. K1 round while at the same time K 2 sts in every st = 16 sts. Insert 8 markers in with 2 sts between every marker. Continue in stockinette st – At the same time inc with 1 YO after every marker (= 8 YOs per round) on every other round - on next round K YO to make a small hole over every YO.
Switch to circular needle when needed. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 19-21-22-23 cm / 7½"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9" from the middle, work next round as follows from mid of neck (this must be a round without inc): Work 19-20-22-24 sts, bind off 24-26-28-30 sts (= armhole) work until 43-46-50-54 sts remain, bind off 24-26-28-30 sts (= armhole), work the last 19-20-22-24 sts on round.
On next round cast on same no of new sts over the bind off sts over each armhole.
Continue to work and inc as before until piece measures approx. 48-53-58-63 cm / 19"-21"-22 3/4"-24 3/4" from the middle. Work 6 rounds in Garter st – see explanation above - (continue to inc when working in garter st).
LOOSELY bind off with K sts.

Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 34-36-37-39 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 7mm / US 10½ with Verdi, work 6 rows in garter st - then work in stockinette st.
When piece measures 10-13-14-10 cm / 4"-5"-5½"-4" inc 1 st in each side, repeat inc every 6.5-5.5-4.5-4.5 cm / 2½"-2 1/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4" a total of 6-7-9-10 times = 46-50-55-59 sts.
When piece measures 52 cm / 20½'' (all sizes), bind off for sleeve cap at beg of every row: 3 sts 1 time in each side, then 1 st in each side until piece measures approx. 60 cm / 23½'' (all sizes). Bind off the remaining sts.

Sew the sleeve seams inside 1 edge st. Sew in the sleeves so that middle of sleeve cap is placed where armholes are the closest tog (i.e where 1st st was cast on for first armhole and where last st was bound off on second armhole) and sleeve seams are placed where the armholes are the furthest apart (i.e. in opposite side).


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Ich habe nicht alle Kommentare gelesen, aber das Problem wurde angesprochen. Ich kette die Ärmel nicht ab, sondern lege sie auf je einem Seil still, genauso die in der nächsten Runde wieder angeschlagenen Maschen. Dann kann ich die Ärmel gleich einstricken und vermeide, dass die Naht sich zusammenzieht. Das Problem des von der Schulter Rutschens behebe ich mit einer innen eingearbeiteten Häkelnaht in Schulterbreite. Diese gibt Stabilität.

Ik wil graag het model Elegance breien. Nu is de benodigde wol , VERDI, uit de collectie. Nu worden er wel vervangers voor gegeven, maar die zijn effen van kleur. Ik vind juist die strepen zo leuk. Is er een wol die ik voor het model Elegance kan gebruiken die wel het strepeneffect geeft?

Dag Rita, Het garen dat het beste overeenkomt qua uitstraling is Big Delight. Echter valt deze in garengroep C. Wat je zou kunnen doen is een dikkere naald nemen zodat de stekenverhouding overeenkomt, maar het breiwerk wordt dan wel wat losser. Een tweede optie is dat je een grotere maat breit (even omrekenen of je dan met jouw stekenverhouding weer uitkomt op de maat die je wilt breien en goed de afmetingen in de gaten houden tijdens het breien). Derde optie is om een draad van garencategorie A mee te breien. Dit geeft wel wat een ander kleurbeeld. Alledrie geen ideale oplossingen, maar ik hoop dat je er wat mee kunt.

Eftersom garnet utgått undrar jag hur många nystan av alternativgarnet i alpacka som går åt? Stämmer det med antalet hekto ändå som är i beskrivningen?

Hej Agneta. Du kan laese her hvordan du beregner hvor meget af garnet du skal bruge til denne her. God fornöjelse.

Hello! Can I knitt this sweater from Drops Delight? What size od needle do you recommend? will be different also material consumption and respective measurement for armhole? Many thanks for your help.

DROPS Design 21.01.2016 kl. 10:16:

Dear Zita, you can work this jacket with DROPS Delight + Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands tog) - read more about this here - to work with 1 strand Delight only, tension will be completely different, you would have to adjust whole pattern. Happy knitting!

I've wanted to knit a circle sweater for a long time now, but have trouble understanding the directions and concept in general. Where can I find your tutorial video on how to knit this sweater? I can't seem to find it on the website. Could you put a link to any helpful videos within each pattern? Thank you.

DROPS Design 20.01.2016 kl. 12:08:

Dear Vera, there is no specific video to that pattern yet, but you will find under the tab "Videos" all relevant videos to each technique used in that pattern - remember your DROPS store will provide you any personnal assistance, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!
