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.
KNITTING TIP:
Every time piece is turned in the middle of piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten thread and return. This is done to avoid holes when working short rows.

SHORT ROWS:
Work short rows in the middle of the piece to give the garment a slight A shape. Beg working from bottom edge (= bottom) and up to neck (= top) as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K all sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 3 (= 1st short row): K 107-112-116-119-123-126 sts, turn piece - READ KNITTING TIP above.
Row 4: K back.
Row 5 (= 2nd short row): K 93-98-101-103-107-109 sts, turn piece.
Row 6: K back.
Row 7 (= 3rd short row): K 75-79-81-83-85-87 sts, turn piece.
Row 8: K back.
Repeat rows 1 to 8, i.e. 1 repetition = 2 rows at the top and 8 rows at the bottom.

MEASURING TIP:
Measure when piece is flat, it is important not to stretch the piece when measuring.
--------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked back and forth on needle in garter st, i.e. K all rows. The entire garment is worked sideways in one, start and finish mid back.

RIGHT BACK PIECE:
Loosely cast on 115-120-125-129-134-138 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Alpaca. Work SHORT ROWS - see explanation above (1st row = RS). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue like this until piece measures approx. 20-22-24-27-30-32 cm from cast on edge (measured at the bottom on the widest) – Read MEASURING TIP above. Then work side piece as follows: Work 1 cm back and forth over only the 68-71-74-76-78-80 sts from bottom edge. Insert a marker (= middle of the side). Work 1 cm back and forth over the same sts, and slip them on a stitch holder (finish after 1 row from RS, sts are to be used on front piece later). Then work sleeve.

RIGHT SLEEVE:
= 47-49-51-53-56-58 sts on needle. Work back and forth with short rows on the same places as before until sleeve measures approx. 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm (at the bottom on the widest), finish after 1 row from WS.

FRONT PIECE:
Work the 68-71-74-76-78-80 sts from stitch holder back on needle (from WS) = 115-120-125-129-134-138 sts. Continue with short rows as before. When piece measures approx. 21-23-25-28-31-33 cm from marker in the side (measured at the bottom on the widest), insert another marker (= mid front). Continue with short rows until piece measures approx. 20-22-24-27-30-32 cm from marker mid front (measured at the bottom on the widest). Now work side piece as follows: Work 1 cm back and forth over only the 68-71-74-76-78-80 sts from bottom edge. Insert another new marker (= middle of the side). Work 1 cm back and forth over the same sts (finish after 1 row from RS), then slip them on a stitch holder. Work left sleeve.

LEFT SLEEVE:
Work as right sleeve.

LEFT BACK PIECE:
Work the 68-71-74-76-78-80 sts from stitch holder back on needle (from WS) = 115-120-125-129-134-138 sts. Continue with short rows as before. When the same no of rows has been worked as on right back piece, loosely cast off.

Bonjour, je voudrais tricoter ce pull avec les manches longues. Merci de votre aide.

DROPS Design 10.05.2019 kl. 09:12:

Bonjour Eugénie, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande. Pour toute assistance complémentaire, merci de bien vouloir contacter votre magasin DROPS - même par mail ou téléphone - ou bien un forum tricot. Bon tricot!

Sue Craver 10.05.2019 - 00:36:

Could this pattern be knit in stockinette stitch instead of garter?

DROPS Design 10.05.2019 kl. 07:45:

Hi Sue, You will then need to adjust the number of stitches and rows to get the same measurements when using stockinette stitch. Knit a trial to see how many stitches and rows you need for your 10 x 10 cm patch and adjust accordingly. Happy knitting!

Guinevere 06.03.2019 - 10:59:

Hello there! I'd like to ask what is meant by " Bust: 84-92-100-112-124-132 cm". Are these measurements for the actual bust size or the finished garment ones? Thank you.

DROPS Design 26.03.2019 kl. 11:14:

Dear Guinevere, you will work 2 cm more on bottom stitiches for the sides, so that the bust measurements will be 2 cm smaller then the bottom edge in all sizes. Happy knitting!

Maria 12.10.2016 - 21:44:

Volevo chiedervi qual'e' il modo migliore per effettuare la cucitura sul retro dietro. Grazie

DROPS Design 12.10.2016 kl. 22:30:

Buonasera Maria, non viene indicato un metodo di cucitura preciso, tuttavia può cucire all'interno della 1° m in modo da renderla meno visibile. Buon lavoro!

Fulvia 12.09.2016 - 20:11:

Buona sera, avrei due domande da fare: In questo modello il lavore comincia dal bordo inferiore o dal collo? Le istruzioni dicono che il maglioncino e' a punto legaccio , ma dall'immagine sembrerebbe una maglia rasata...... Mi sto sbagliando? Vi ringrazia Fulvia

DROPS Design 12.09.2016 kl. 20:43:

Buonasera Fulvia, il modello è lavorato a maglia legaccio: probabilmente il colore del filato non rende bene in foto e si fatica a vedere il tipo di lavorazione. Questo modello inizia dal bordo inferiore. Buon lavoro!

Michaela S. 02.03.2016 - 23:11:

Dobrý den, poradíte mi prosím, jestli jsem správně pochopila, že přední díl pro velikost L měří mezi bočními značkami 27 cm, zatímco zadní díl 50cm? A druhý dotaz je k pletení rukávů. Tvaruje se průkrčník nad rukávy také zkrácenými řadami? Moc děkuji za pomoc. Michala S.

Candice 31.12.2015 - 01:07:

Bonjour, je tricote ce modèle, et je suis arrivée à la manche. Faut il joindre la laine qui vient des mailles en attente et continuer à tricoter la manche ou faut il laisser les mailles en attente en coupant ce fil et tricoter à part la manche? Merci par avance, il me tarde d'avoir fini ce pull ☺

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 15:54:

Bonjour Candice, coupez le fil après avoir mis les mailles du bas du devant en attente et tricotez la manche, à la fin de la manche, tricotez 1 rang sur l'envers et tricotez les mailles en attente. Bon tricot!

Sheila 04.01.2015 - 05:06:

Do you use another ball of yarn to do the sleeves? If not, how do you get the yarn from under the sleeves to the sleeves without going through the arm hole?

DROPS Design 05.01.2015 kl. 09:05:

Dear Sheila, you have to cut the yarn before working the sleeve, ie after having worked 1 cm over all sts under sleeve, cut the yarn, join again to work the sleeve, and at the end of sleeve, from WS, work the sts from under arm. Make the same for 2nd sleeve. Happy knitting!

Sheila 26.12.2014 - 22:51:

Do you use another ball of yarn to do the sleeves? If not, how do you get the yarn from under the sleeves to the sleeves without going through the arm hole?

DROPS Design 10.02.2015 kl. 14:46:

Dear Sheila, cut the yarn after you have worked the 2 cm under sleeve, then join the yarn to work the sleeve. Happy knitting!

Dahuron Chantal 25.10.2014 - 11:34:

Bonjour, j'aimerai savoir combien de pelotes de laine faut il pour ce modèle en taille M. merci d'avance pour votre réponse. cordialement.

DROPS Design 27.10.2014 kl. 08:41:

Bonjour Mme Dahuron, la quantité de fil nécessaire pour chaque taille se trouve à droite de la photo, soit en taille M 250 g pour ce pull. Divisez le montant par le poids de la pelote, soit 250/50 g la pelote Alpaca = 5 pelotes en taille M avec un échantillon de 23 m x 45 rangs point mousse = 10 x 10 cm. Bon tricot!
