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

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the weight of the yarn all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the garment will be too long when worn.
--------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on needle. Loosely cast on 69-75-81-90-99-108 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand Symphony or 1 strand ”Alpaca” + 1 strand ”Brushed Alpaca Silk” held together.
Work rib as follows: * K 1, P 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire row (1st row = RS).
Work rib for 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm / 2''-2''-2''-2½''-2½''-2½''.

When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾'', bind off for armholes as follows: bind off 3-4-5-6-8-10 sts at beg of the next 2 rows = 52-54-58-62-66-70 sts. Insert a marker at beg and end of row (where to knit up sleeves later).
Continue in garter st until piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm / 21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾''.

Loosely bind off all sts when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as on back piece until piece measures 48-50-51-53-54-56 cm / 19''-19¾''-20''-21''-21¼''-22''.
Then bind off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-12 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Then bind off on every row from neck as follows: 2 sts 1-1-1-2-1-2 times, 1 st 3-4-3-2-3-2 times = 17-17-19-20-22-23 sts remain on shoulder.
Loosely bind off all sts when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''.

Pick up from RS approx. 50 to 60 sts between markers along one armhole on needle size 8 mm / US 11 (NOTE: Do not knit up sts over the bind off sts for armhole).
K next row - while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 42-44-48-50-52-54.
Work in garter st for 2-3-4-5-6-8 cm / 3/4"-1"-1½"-2"-2½"-3", then dec 1 st (by K tog the 2 outermost sts) in each side of piece.
Repeat dec every 6½-6½-5½-4½-4½-3½ cm / 2½"-2½"-2 1/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 1/4" 6-6-7-8-8-9 more times (= a total of 7-7-8-9-9-10 times) = 28-30-32-32-34-34 sts.

Ik wil deze trui graag breien maar niet op rondbreinaalden. Is er ook een patroon voor een los rug- en voorpand?

Tricy 26.12.2015 - 16:13:

Bonjour est il possible pour ce modèle de tricoter les manches en les commençant par les cotes et en augmentant jusqu'à l'emmanchure au lieu de reprendre les mailles sur le pull directement. Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 13:50:

Bonjour Tricy, vous êtes tout à fait libre d'adapter les explications comme vous le souhaitez. Pensez à bien modifier les explications en fonction. Bon tricot!

Carin 07.11.2015 - 22:12:

Bij de afwerking staat dat je de mouwen aan de voor en achterkant moet naaien , ik denk dat er volgens het patroon staat dat je de mouwen moet aanbreien van boven naar onder...zo heb ik het toch gedaan ??

DROPS Design 09.11.2015 kl. 11:48:

Hoi Carin. Ja, ik ben met je eens. Ik zal het even weghalen.

Janet 05.02.2013 - 01:14:

Are there supposed to be armholes cast off at the edges of the back piece?? I've reworked it about 3 times now and I still can't get how the front and back pieces are supposed to go together if they don't match!

DROPS Design 05.02.2013 kl. 09:35:

Dear Janet, you cast off for armholes 3-4-5-6-8-10 sts (see size) each side (= at the beg of next 2 rows) when back/front piece measure 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm. Happy knitting !

Det fremgår ikke af opskriften at side sømmene skal syes? skal de ikke syes? Ellers tak for alle de skønne modeller i har....

DROPS Design 17.01.2013 kl. 14:11:

Du har ret at det kunne staa lidt bedre der. Du monterer aermene i blusen efter du har syet skuldersömmen. Derefter syr du ærmesømmene + sidesøm paa één gang i yderste led af yderste m.

Baerbel Manchester 05.09.2012 - 17:58:

Hallo, 60 cm Rundnadel etwas kurz fuer die grossen Teile.

DROPS Design 13.09.2012 kl. 13:28:

Hallo Bärbel, da haben Sie schon Recht: es strickt sich sicher komfortabler mit einer langen Nadel, die Maschen sind etwas gedrängt. Aber da man für den Halsausschnitt dann sowieso eine 60 cm Nadel braucht, wollten wir vermeiden, dass man für die paar Reihen am unteren Bündchen eine weitere Nadel kaufen muss.

Anne 01.07.2012 - 19:43:

En ekte kose genser, enkel og etter min smak:) Men gi oss flere farger å velge mellom, for no har eg brukt opp alle fargene eg kan bruke flere ganger. Så litt tøffe farger hadde gjort seg, lilla og orange etc.

Bente 30.06.2012 - 17:31:

For voldsom og uformelig, og lidt for 90'er-agtig. Lidt et uformeligt får :)
