BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 143-163-171-185-205 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Merino Extra Fine. K 1 round. Then work next round as follows: * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* over the first 20-24-28-28-32 sts, work diagram A.1 (= 29-29-29-35-35 sts), * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* over the remaining 94-110-114-122-138 sts.
Continue rib like this until A.1 has been work 1 time vertically. Rib measures approx. 5 cm / 2'' and there are 149-169-177-193-213 sts on needle (i.e. the 29-29-29-35-35 sts in A.1 are inc to 35-35-35-43-43).
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 1 round in stockinette st while AT THE SAME TIME dec 21-25-25-27-31 sts evenly = 128-144-152-166-182 sts - NOTE: Do not dec over the 35-35-35-43-43 sts from A.1, work these sts K over K and P over P.
Now insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 67-75-79-87-95 sts (these marks the sides) - NOTE: Adjust the markers so that A.1 is in the middle of front piece. There are now 67-75-79-87-95 sts on front piece and 61-69-73-79-87 sts on back piece.
Work next round as follows: Work diagram A.3 over the first 16-20-22-22-26 sts, diagram A.2 over the next 35-35-35-43-43 sts and diagram A.3 over the remaining 77-89-95-101-113 sts. Continue the pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', inc 1 st on each side of both markers. Repeat inc every 6-6-8-8-8 cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8", 2 more times = 140-156-164-178-194 sts – work the inc sts in pattern.
When piece measures 27-29-32-33-34 cm / 10 5/8"-11 3/8"-12½"-13"-13 3/8", bind off 6 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. 3 sts on each side of both markers) and finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 61-69-73-79-87 sts. Continue pattern as before until finished measurements.
AT THE SAME TIME bind off at beg of every row , in each side as follows: bind off 2 sts 1-1-1-2-3 times and 1 st 1-3-3-2-2 times = 55-59-63-67-71 sts.
When piece measures 38-41-45-47-49 cm / 15"-16 1/8"-17 3/4"-18½"-19 1/4", bind off the middle 15-15-15-19-19 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 19-21-23-23-25 sts remain on the shoulder.
Continue until piece measures 40-43-47-49-51 cm / 15 3/4"-17"-18½"-19 1/4"-20" and bind off.

FRONT PIECE:
= 67-75-79-87-95 sts. Continue pattern as before while AT THE SAME TIME binding off for armholes at beg of every row in each side as on back piece.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 28-30-33-34-35 cm / 11"-11 3/4"-13"-13½"-13 3/4" – adjust so that at least 1 or 3 rows in stockinette st have been worked after a row with cables, work A.4 from RS, instead of A.2 (work the other sts as before), i.e. dec 6-6-6-8-8 sts in A.4.
On next row, bind off the middle 17-17-17-21-21 sts for neck and finish each part separately.
After all bind offs, 19-21-23-23-25 sts remain on shoulder. Continue to work until piece measures 40-43-47-49-51 cm / 15 3/4"-17"-18½"-19 1/4"-20" up to shoulder and bind off.

Repeat inc every 4½-4½-4½-4-4 cm / 1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1½"-1½", 4-5-6-8-9 more times = 50-54-58-64-68 sts – work the inc sts in pattern.
When piece measures 28-32-36-41-46 cm / 11"-12½"-14 1/4"-16 1/8"-18", bind off 6 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. bind off 3 sts on each side of marker) and work the sleeve back and forth on needle until finished measurements.
Bind off for sleeve cap at beg of every row, in each side as follows: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2-3-4-4-5 times.
Then bind off 2 sts at beg of every row in each side until piece measures 32-37-41-46-52 cm / 12½"-14½"-16 1/8"-18"-20½", then bind off 3 sts at beg of the next 2 rows.

Sandra 06.09.2019 - 16:06:

Buongiorno, vorrei sapere cosa si intende riprendere da 26 a 36 maglie per il collo a scialle.. Posso decidere io quante maglie riprendere? Grazie

DROPS Design 06.09.2019 kl. 16:40:

Buongiorno Sandra. Il numero delle maglie varia a seconda delle taglie: 26 per la taglia più piccola e 36 per quella più grande. Può seguire il metodo che usa di solito per riprendere le maglie intorno allo scollo, riprendendo un numero di maglie tra i due indicati. Buon lavoro!

Vanessa 10.08.2019 - 22:16:

Bonjour, Jai du Mal a comprendre Sur le diagrams " A1" , Dans la legendes IL EST marque : pas de mailles sauter Cette case" qué voulez vous dire au juste? Je ne tricote Pas la maille je la glisse ou ?

DROPS Design 12.08.2019 kl. 07:53:

Bonjour Vanessa, ce carré noir n'est pas une maille car la maille n'a pas encore été augmenté (= on ne fait l'augmentation que plus tard, au dernier rang). Tricotez ainsi par ex en tialle 3/4, 5/6 7/8 ans: 2 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 3 m env etc... Bon tricot!

Tita 02.09.2018 - 11:14:

Ik begrijp niet goed hoe dat meerderen in de kraag moet worden uitgevoerd. Je moet de 12 middelste steken meerderen na 6 cm maar dan heb je toch 4 recht, 4 averecht? Klopt dat?

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 11:48:

Dag Tita, Over het middelste gedeelte van de kraag, dus bij de hals meerder je in de boordsteek op de plekken waar je 2 recht hebt gebreid. Deze meerder je naar 3 recht, waardoor achterin de kraag een gedeelte met boordsteek 3 recht, 2 averecht ontstaat. En dit meerderen doe je dus om de 12 middelste gedeelten waar je 2 recht hebt gebreid. Hopelijk is het zo duidelijk.

Jolanta 17.03.2018 - 22:02:

Witam. Mam również problem przy robieniu przodu na wysokości 33 cm od dołu robótki (dot.rozm.7/8) przejść z ze schematu A2na A4 zamykajac 6oczek.w schemacie A4. O co dokladnie chodzi bo w jednym i drugim schemacie jest 35 pól i nie ma oczek zamykających.

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 18:16:

Witaj Jolanto! W legendzie do schematu były błędy. Zostały już skorygowane. Teraz widać dokładnie, że w schemacie A.4 będzie zamkniętych 6 o. Pozdrawiamy!

Jolanta 09.03.2018 - 20:27:

Witam nie rozumie części po ściągaczy rozmiar 7/8 lat. Przerobić schemat A1 (29 oczek) potem 2ol 2 op powtorzyć przez 114 kolejnych oczek czyli w sumie 118o . 118 +29 =147oczek a na drutach nabrane jest 171. Co z resztą 24 oczek?

DROPS Design 11.03.2018 kl. 09:42:

Witaj Jolanto! W punkcie wyjścia w rozmiarze 7/8 lat jest 171 o. Całe okrążenie wygląda następująco: *2 o.l., 2 o.p.*, powt. od *-* ponad 28 pierwszymi o., przer. schemat A.1 (= 29 o.), *2 o.p., Miłej pracy!

Loes Schilder 08.03.2018 - 18:13:

Bepaalde dingen bij het breien van het lijf begrijp ik niet. Moet ik eerst 5 cm boord 2 r. 2 a. breien of moet ik onder het patroon dat anders doen. De opzet steken is ook een oneven getal. Hartelijke groet, Loes.

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 15:02:

Hallo Loes, Je zet op en je breit eerst een volledige naald recht. Dan brei je de volgende naald eerst over de eerste 20-24-28-28-32 steken in boordpatroon, dus 2 recht, 2 averecht, dan brei je A.1 over de volgende 29-29-29-35-35 , dan weer boordsteek en zo ga je verder. A.1 komt dus tussen de boordsteek en hierboven komt uiteindelijk de kabbel.

I would really like it if the comments could also be translated into English.

Alejandra 25.01.2016 - 23:47:

En el patrón A4 sale la abreviatura 2 pjd significa tejer 2 puntos juntos derecho?

DROPS Design 27.01.2016 kl. 08:45:

Hola Alejandra. Es correcto, 2 pjd= trabajar 2 puntos juntos de derecho.

Pernille 04.01.2016 - 00:23:

Når jeg strikker rygstykket (efter ribkanten) har jeg et ulige antal masker. -Hvilket medfører at jeg ender med 2 ret lige efter hinanden. Derfor får jeg jo ikke perlestrik der? Jeg starter med forstykket: 67 masker: 16 masker (=perlestrik), 35 masker (=snoninger), 16 masker (=perlestrik). Herefter rygstykket: 61 masker: ulige antal, så perlestrik ender med ret (som jeg startede forstykket med??

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 15:04:

Hej Pernille, Jo men det får du når du strikker næste pind. God fornøjelse!

Jonna Larsen 03.08.2015 - 09:29:

Jeg strikker model nr. 23-9 , men har et problem, perlestrikken er skæv , er der nogen der har det samme problem.
