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

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 210-228-246-270-306-330 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with dark gray blue Karisma.
Work rib = K 1/P 1 for 5 cm / 2''.
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 36-38-40-44-52-56 sts evenly = 174-190-206-226-254-274 sts.
Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 87-95-103-113-127-137 sts (these marks the sides). Continue in stockinette st.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 15 cm / 6'', inc 1 st on each side of both markers. Repeat inc when piece measures 30 cm / 11 3/4'' = 182-198-214-234-262-282 sts.
When piece measures 41-43-45-46-48-50 cm / 16"-17"-17 3/4"-18"-19"-19 3/4", insert 2 markers in the piece; 1 in the middle st at the front and 1 in the middle st at the back.
Then work diagram M.1 – st marked with arrow in diagram should be sts with marker mid front/back - count out towards the side. Count out again when at the marker in the side so that pattern is the same on the front and on the back. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 46-47-48-49-50-51 cm / 18''-18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾''-20'', bind off 6-10-14-20-30-36 sts for armholes in each side (i.e. 3-5-7-10-15-18 sts on each side of both markers in the sides). Finish front and back piece separately, back and forth on needle.

FRONT PIECE:
= 85-89-93-97-101-105 sts. Finish diagram M.1, then work diagram M.2 and finally M.3 before continuing with light beige brown until finished measurements (st with arrow in diagram should be st with marker mid front/back – count out towards the side).
When piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'', slip the middle 15-17-17-19-19-21 sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
AT THE SAME TIME bind off at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 3 times = 26-27-29-30-32-33 sts remain on shoulder.
Bind off when piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''.

BACK PIECE:
= 85-89-93-97-101-105 sts. Work as on front piece but do not bind off for neck until piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm / 25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''. Now bind off the middle 29-31-31-33-33-35 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately - AT THE SAME TIME bind off 2 sts on next row from neck = 26-27-29-30-32-33 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when piece measures approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' – bind off on same row in pattern as on front piece.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.
Cast on 62-64-66-66-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2or3 with dark gray blue. Work rib = K 1/P 1 for 5 cm / 2''.
Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 11 sts evenly = 51-53-55-55-57-57 sts.
Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve) and continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', inc 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat inc a total of 17-18-19-21-22-24 times in

Size L: Every 8th round,
Size XL: On every 7th round,
Size XXL: Alternately on every 6th and 7th round

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 53 cm / 21'' in all sizes, work diagram M.1 (st with arrow in diagram = mid on top of sleeve – count out towards the side).
After diagram M.1, continue with dark gray blue until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 61-60-59-58-56-54 cm / 24"-23½"-23 1/4"-22 3/4"-22"-21 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and broader shoulder width), finish the piece back and forth on needle from mid under sleeve.
Cast on 1 new st in each side (= edge st for assembly) and work until sleeve measures 63 cm / 24 3/4'' in all sizes, bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams and sew in sleeves (section worked back and forth at the top of sleeve should fit the bind off for armhole).

Neulon S-kokoa ja silmukat eivät mene kuviossa M1 tasan. Kuuluuko kirjoneule aloittaa siis etu- ja takakappaleen keskimmäisestä silmukasta? Aikaisemmissa kirjoneulepaidoissani kuvio on aloitettu aina neulekerroksen alusta.

Petra Košútová 07.12.2017 - 21:37:

Dobrý večer, chcela by som sa opýtať, že kde som mohla urobiť chybu. Išla som zdá sa podľa návodu no keď som dorobila telo a pri zašívaní naramenice zistila som, že mi nesedí počet uzatvorených očiek. Zadný diel: 93-31=62/2=31-2=29 Predný diel: 93-17=76/2=38 Môžete mi prosím poradiť čo s tým? A kde som urobila chybu? Veľmi pekne ďakujem

Julia 24.07.2017 - 20:01:

Jag stickar i storlek L och får inte ihop M1 med antalet maskor, det är ju 214 m men delat/gångrat med de 6m i mönstret antingen saknas det 2 m eller behöver läggas till 2 m, så jag undrar hur det ska vara? Sen undrar jag även om jag börjar med M1 redan från sidmarkeringen i början av varvet, eller om jag alltså ska sticka en halv sida och börja M1 från den markerade mittenmaskan?

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 15:40:

Hej Julia, Här ser du hur du placerar mönstret i mitten Hur du placerar ett diagram i mitten Lycka till!

Liv Berit Simonsen 13.03.2017 - 13:48:

Jeg holder på å strikke ermet til denne genseren, leser i oppskriften at etter 53 cm skal det strikkes M 1. Men på bildet ser det ut for at det er mønster 3 også?

DROPS Design 13.03.2017 kl. 14:25:

Hei Liv. Der strikkes kun M.3 paa skulderen - ikke överst paa ermet.

Maire 07.03.2017 - 11:39:

Hei, Aloittaessani kuviota M1, huomasin että kuviossa silmukat eivät mene tasan. Teen kokoa L, jolloin silmukkamäärä on 214. Ohjeessa keskisilmukan molemmilla puolilla olisi 53 s etu- ja takakappaleessa. Pitääkö siis ohjeessa lisätä vielä kaksi silmukkaa (yhteensä 216 silmukkaa työssä), jotta kuvio täsmäisi? Kuviohan on jaollinen 6:lla.

DROPS Design 07.03.2017 kl. 16:13:

Hei! Kuvioon on nuolella merkitty etu- ja takakappaleen keskikohta ja kuvion alku lasketaan tästä. Tämä tarkoittaa, että kuvion silmukkaluku ei välttämättä mene kaikissa koissa tasan.

Yvonne Skogli 02.03.2017 - 09:28:

Hei ! Eg lurer på om det stemmer at en skal strikke vrangborden, for så å felle når en begynner på bolen ? Str S skal en legge opp 228 masker og så felle 38 masker og fortsette med glattstrikk. Det er første gang eg gjør det med en genseroppskrift, så er usikker om det virkelig stemmer ? Som regel så øker man antallet masker når en begynner på bolen. Mvh Yvonne :)

DROPS Design 02.03.2017 kl. 15:45:

Hej Yvonne. Ja, det er korrekt. Vrangbord traekker sig mere sammen en ren glatstrik, derfor tager du ind, saa din glatstrik del bliver lige saa bred som vrangborden. Tager du ikke ind (eller tog ud), ville den del blive meget bredere = mere poset.

Alex 14.01.2017 - 10:44:

I have just got to the part where I will begin the colourwork and am making size Large. I can't help noticing that 214 sts doesn't go equally into the number of stitches required for the colour pattern repeats (6sts, 24sts and 12sts), meaning that the pattern will not have a neat join. To solve it I will have to increase an extra 2sts to 216, so the pattern comes out even. Is this intentional or is this a mistake in the pattern?

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 09:12:

Dear Alex, in size L you are working over 214 sts, center diagram (see here) so that the st with an arrow in diagram is the st with a marker on mid back and on mid front, ie pattern will not match on the sides, start from one marker, work across to the 2nd marker, and repeat to the end of round. Happy knitting!

Ike Pots 20.11.2016 - 13:02:

Ik ben begonnen met M1 over 214 st. Maar kom niet uit. Kom op het laatst 2 steken te kort. Wat doe ik fout?

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 13:24:

Hoi Ike. Je hebt in totaal 214 st = 107 st voor elk pand. Middelste st voor/achter is dan de 54e st (je hebt dan 53 st aan elke zijkant van de middelste st). Dit is de steken gemarkeerd met een pijltje. Je hebt 6 st per herhaling van M.1, steken met pijltje is 2e st. Steek 53 is eerste st van de herhaling, dan 8 hele herhalingen: 48 st, 5 st over, dus je begint met 2e st van het telpatroon. Lees ook hier hoe je een telpatroon in met midden plaatst

Kristine 14.11.2016 - 11:40:

Stemmer det virkelig at det skal felles 30m til erme på hver side av bolen? For- og bakstykket er jo ca 126 omg (høyde på begge til sammen) på xxl og med de 30 til ermehull, blir ikke dette alt for stort for å passe inn et erme på 101m? Og hvordan blir dette under armen, folder det seg ikke mot brystkassen når det er et såpass stort "flatt" parti?

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 12:13:

Hei Kristine. Det burde vaere korrekt ja. Vi har ikke modtaget yderligere kommentarer paa at dette skulle vaere forkert og der er f.eks. paa Ravelry mange fine resultater paa denne genser.

Dror 05.10.2016 - 12:59:

This is not a seamless sweater. please correct your tags :)

DROPS Design 05.10.2016 kl. 14:32:

Dear Mrs Dror, we do not have "seamless" as a tag on this pattern, can you tell us more? Thank you!
