Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. NOTE: To avoid the piece being to tight in the sides when working pattern, make 2 YOs inside edge st in each side on every row with dropped sts (instead of 1 YO). Slip both YOs off the needle on next row.

Change color on every row marked with arrow in A.1 and A.2. Work the stripes in the following order:

1 strand rust + 1 strand raspberry
1 strand raspberry + 1 strand peach
2 strands raspberry
1 strand raspberry + 1 strand peach
1 strand peach + 1 strand cerise
1 strand cerise + 1 strand medium pink
2 strands cerise
1 strand cerise + 1 strand medium pink

1 strand medium pink + 1 strand beige
2 strands beige
1 strand beige + 1 strand strong yellow
1 strand beige + 1 strand yellow

Because of the texture on the garment the piece must be held up when measuring otherwise the jumper will be too long when worn.

Cast on 63-69-75-83-91-99 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand rust + 1 strand raspberry. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - for 2-2-3-3-4-4 cm / ¾''-¾''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''.
Then work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side (1st row = RS), AT THE SAME TIME work STRIPES - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
NOTE: Diagram A.1 is repeated 2 times vertically (until stripes in A.1 are done).
After A.1 change to 1 strand medium pink + 1 strand beige. Work in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side until piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm / 13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½''-15''-15¼'' - READ MEASURING TIP.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 AT THE SAME TIME continue with STRIPES - see explanation above.
When stripes in A.2 are done, continue pattern with the colors in last stripe (1 strand beige + 1 strand yellow) until finished measurements.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm / 15¼''-15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼'' - remember MEASURING TIP, insert 1 marker in each side (marks depth of armhole).
When piece measures 48-50-52-52-54-56 cm / 19"-19 3/4"-20½"-20½"-21 1/4"-22", bind off the middle 21-21-23-23-25-25 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Then bind off at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 1 time = 18-21-23-27-30-34 sts remain on shoulder.
Continue to work until piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm / 21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾'', work 1 ridge and loosely bind off, piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''.
Repeat on the other shoulder.

Cast on and work as front piece. Mark the depth of armhole as on front piece.
Continue to work until piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm / 20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8".
Now bind off the middle 25-25-27-27-29-29 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 18-21-23-27-30-34 sts remain on the shoulder.
When piece measures 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm / 21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾'', work 1 ridge before loosely binding off all sts.
Repeat on the other shoulder.

Sew the shoulder seams.

Pick up from RS 45-47-51-53-57-59 sts between the 2 markers in one side of jumper on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand yellow + 1 strand beige. NOTE: If more/fewer sts have been knitted up, dec/inc evenly on 1st row to the correct no of sts.
Work PATTERN according to diagram A.2 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side, AT THE SAME TIME work STRIPES – see explanation above but beg at the top of diagram (1st row = WS) and reversed in stripes and work downwards so that you beg with yellow at the top of sleeve and work down towards the rust red. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, change to 1 strand cerise + 1 strand medium pink and continue with A.1 and STRIPES the same way (beg at the top of diagram and reversed in stripes).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 2-2-3-3-4-4 cm / ¾''-¾''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½'' from markers, dec 1 st in each side. Repeat dec in each side every 9-7-5½-4½-3½-3 cm / 3½"-2 3/4"-2 1/4"-1 3/4"-1 1/4"-1 1/8" 4-5-6-7-8-9 more times (= 5-6-7-8-9-10 dec in total) = 35-35-37-37-39-39 sts.
Continue to work until sleeve measures 47-46-45-44-42-40 cm / 18½"-18"-17 3/4"-17 1/4"-16½"-15 3/4" from markers - remember MEASURING TIP. Work 2 ridges with 1 strand raspberry + 1 strand rust and bind off.
Work the other sleeve the same way.

Sew underarm and side seams in one in front loop of outermost st.

Pick up approx. 70 to 85 sts around the neck on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 1 strand yellow + 1 strand beige. P 1 round and K 1 round, then loosely bind off with P.

In der Erklärung des Diagrammes ist das Muster als Hin-und Rückreihe angegeben, also die weissen Kästchen steht für zwei Reihen (Hinreihe rechts, Rückreihe links). Im Diagramm aber werden anhand der Seitenzahlen nur die Hinreihen gezeigt. \r\nAusserdem möchte ich darauf hinweisen, dass die von mir gefertigte Maschenprobe bei 30Grad gewaschen und im Trockner getrocknet wurde. Sie war anschliessend in Länge und Breite 1 cm kleiner.

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 08:44:

Liebe Maria, die Diagramme zeigen alle Reihen dh die Hin sowie die Rückreihen. Beginnen Sie an der unteren Ecke an der rechten Seite und lesen Sie die Hinreihen rechts nach links, die Rückreihen lesen Sie links nach rechts. DROPS Safran soll nicht im Trockner getrocknet werden - siehe Farbkarte/Pflegehinweise und mehr über die Pflegehinweise lesen Sie hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kan man lave ærmerne lange instedet for 3/4

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 13:12:

Hei Malene. Selvfølgelig kan du det. Du kan legge inn noen omganger glattstrikk med beige og mellomrosa i overgangen mellom A.2 og A.1 – som på bolen. Du kan enten strikke arbeidet lenger til ønsket lengde eller felle noen masker om du ikke vil ha ermet så vidt nederst. God fornøyelse

Daniela 02.04.2018 - 12:42:

Allora adesso ho capito dove sbagliato. Io consideravo ogni riga come due ferri, visto che la legenda dice al quadretto bianco: Diritto sul diritto e rovescio sul rovescio. Poi invece ho letto bene sul descrizione al paragrafo MOTIVO: I diagrammi mostrano tutti i ferri del motivo, visti sul diritto del lavoro. Se posso un consiglio sarebbe meglio correggere la legenda e indicare solo una maglia diritto. Grazie!

Daniela 02.04.2018 - 10:41:

Buongiorno! Seguendo lo schema, se corretto cosa faccio, mi vengono strisce a maglia rasata mentre dalla foto il modello sembra essere perlopiù fatto a maglia legaccio. Inoltre il primo ferro dritto dopo il ferro dei gettati darebbe due giri a legaccio quindi non risulta uguale il decoro sotto e sopra e devo saltare il ferro facendo rasato...spero di essermi spiegata...

DROPS Design 02.04.2018 kl. 11:05:

Buongiorno Daniela. Lo schema è prevalentemente a legaccio. Le righe con i quadrati con la stellina, sono i ferri di ritorno e vengono lavorati a diritto. In questo modo il decoro risulta uguale sopra e sotto la riga traforata. Buon lavoro!

Federica 27.05.2017 - 15:25:

Io ho provato a fare il campione seguendo lo schema A2 ma nell'eseguire il lavoro secondo me c'è un errore nel 3° o 4°ferro. Qui secondo me è sbagliato lo schema perché per lavorare dritto le maglie dritto su rovescio, dopo aver lavorato il 3° ferro dovrei trovarmi con le maglie a rovescio.. invece non è così... mi trovo con le maglie a dritto. Per favore spiegatemi dove sbaglio.

DROPS Design 27.05.2017 kl. 16:57:

Buongiorno Federica. L'indicazione di lavorare la maglia a dir sul rovescio, significa che le maglie vanno lavorate a diritto sui ferri che lavora sul rovescio del lavoro; sono i ferri di ritorno quando si lavora avanti e indietro. Buon lavoro!

Antonella 13.07.2015 - 16:59:

Salve, sto per ordinare il filato necessario per questo modello taglia M. Le quantità dei vari colori sono corrette? Mi preoccupa il commento della sig.ra Anna del 25.03.2013 alle 13:53. Potete controllare? Grazie per la risposta.

DROPS Design 13.07.2015 kl. 19:25:

Buonasera Antonella, non ci sono segnalazioni particolari a riguardo, il quantitativo indicato è corretto a patto che il suo campione corrisponda esattamente a quello indicato. Buon lavoro!

Anne-Karin 26.03.2014 - 17:51:

Hei. Hvor mye garn går det med til denne hvis den strikkes i ensfarget. I 110 i omkrets

Christin Hübsch 22.08.2013 - 21:10:

Ich habe denn Pulli mit der 6er Nadel gemacht. In der Breite komm ich gut hin aber in der Länge wird ee viel zu kurz. Strick ich aber lockerer wird es zu breit. Was kann ich tun?

DROPS Design 23.08.2013 kl. 08:33:

Liebe Christin, wenn die Breite stimmt ist shcon viel gewonnen. Die Länge können Sie durch ein paar zuätzliche Reihen anpassen.

Susanne Wagner 14.08.2013 - 10:03:

Die Wolle ist ein Traum und die Farbkombinationen sind wunderschön gewählt. Ich habe den Pulli in Größe M gestrickt, leider musste ich je 1 Knäuel beige und rosa nachbestellen, obwohl die Maschenprobe korrekt war. Jetzt kann es endlich weiter gehen :)
