GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

See diagram A.1. Diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS. See diagram for size!

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 67-75-83-91 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with one strand Big Delight and one strand Vivaldi. Work 2 RIDGES in garter st - see explanation above.
Then work as follows from RS: 1 edge st, A.1 over the next 64-72-80-88 sts, finish with 1 st in stockinette st and 1 edge st in garter st. Continue this pattern until piece measures 62-64-66-68 cm / 24½"-25 1/4"-26"-26 3/4".
Now bind off the middle 31-35-39-43 sts for neck = 18-20-22-24 sts remaining on each shoulder.
Finish each shoulder separately. Continue with A.1 until piece measures 64-66-68-70 cm / 25 1/4"-26"-26 3/4"-27½", bind off. Insert a marker in each side of back piece, 18-19-20-21 cm / 7"-7½"-8"-8 1/4" down from shoulder. This shows where sleeve is sewn in.

Cast on and work as on back piece until piece measures 58-60-61-63 cm / 22 3/4"-23½"-24"-24 3/4". Now slip the middle 23-27-31-35 sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately.
Work in stockinette st over the sts that do not fit A.1. Then bind off on every row towards neck; 2 sts 1 time, 1 st 2 times = 18-20-22-24 sts remain on shoulder.
Continue with A.1 until piece measures 64-66-68-70 cm / 25 1/4"-26"-26 3/4"-27½", bind off.
Insert a marker in each side of front piece, 18-19-20-21 cm / 7"-7½"-8"-8 1/4" down from shoulder. This shows where sleeve is sewn in.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 26-28-30-32 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 8 mm / US 11 with one strand Big Delight and one strand Vivaldi.
Work 2 ridges in garter st, continue in stockinette st with 1 edge st in each side in garter st.
When piece measures 8 cm / 3'', inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 9-8-7½-6½ cm / 3½"-3 1/8"-2 7/8"-2½" 4 more times (5 inc in total) = 36-38-40-42 sts.
When piece measures 47-45-42-40 cm / 18½"-17 3/4"-16½"-15 3/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), bind off all sts.

ASSEMBLY: Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves, down to markers. Sew underarm seams and side seams in one inside one edge st.

Pick up 60-70 sts (includes sts on stitch holder) with one strand Big Delight and one strand Vivaldi on a short circular needle size 8 mm / US 11. Work 2 ridges in garter st, bind off.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Buonasera, posso lavorare questo modello con i ferri dritti, visto che il dietro e il davanti sono lavorati separatamente? Non riesco a lavorare bene il rovescio sui ferri circolari.

DROPS Design 17.02.2019 kl. 00:18:

Buongiorno Anna Paola. Sì, può lavorare con i ferri dritti seguendo le spiegazioni così come sono. Buon lavoro!

Can you please suggest an alternative to Vivaldi yarn which is used in this pattern

DROPS Design 09.02.2019 kl. 21:47:

Dear Jacqueline. The best yarn substitute for Drops Vivaldi, is Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk. Please note it comes in 25 gr skeins. Happy knitting!

Jacqueline Stainthorpe 09.02.2019 - 16:43:

Please can you suggest an alternative to Vivaldi yarn which is used in this pattern

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 04:18:

Dear Jacqueline, if you are after the soft, hairy, halo of the Vivaldi yarn, we suggest you try the DROPS Melody, or the DROPS Brushed Alpaca yarn (2 strands held together). If you are after the colorchangng effect of that yarn, you can try using a strand of DROPS Delight of Fabel and a strand of DROPS Brushed Alpaca silk yarn. Happy Knitting!

Francesca 01.02.2019 - 20:56:

Se realizzo il modello senza il filo di vivaldi, o meglio del suo sostituto, quindi usando solo il big delight, l'effetto è molto diverso dall'originale? Devo usare un numero di ferri diverso? Grazie

DROPS Design 02.02.2019 kl. 08:29:

Buongiorno Francesca. Con solo il big delight dovrà lavorare con ferri più piccoli e controllare anche il numero delle maglie. Risalterà di più la sfumatura del filato. Per ogni aiuto personalizzato, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Margaret 01.07.2017 - 14:44:

Hello! I'm hoping to start this pattern this weekend. Please can you explain why you advise using circular needles. How would this work? Since the back and front are knitted separately with a side seam to join them, could I use straight needles? I am a little confused. Thank you.

DROPS Design 01.07.2017 kl. 19:34:

Dear Margaret, we recommend using circular needles in this pattern to have enough room for all the stitches and work more comfortably. If you don't have these problems with the straight needles, you may use them as well.

Isabelle 31.03.2017 - 11:53:

Pour information, j'ai remplacé Vivaldi par Brushed Alpaca Silk, et 125 grammes sont nécessaires donc 5 pelotes.

Alice Haydsen 16.03.2017 - 19:12:

The pattern talks about PSSO. Is this a 1 stitch decrease or 2 stitch decrease. I've seen PSSOs done both ways. Thanks

DROPS Design 17.03.2017 kl. 08:35:

Dear Mrs Haydsen, the video below shows how to slip 1, k2 tog, psso. Happy knitting!

Kat St-Onge 05.03.2017 - 16:07:

Dans le patron on lit :Continuer ensuite ainsi sur l'endroit: 1 m lis, A.1 au-dessus des 64-72-80-88 m suiv, terminer par 1 m en jersey end et 1 m lis au point mousse. Ne devrait on pas lire : Continuer ainsi sur l'endroit 1 m lis 1 m jersey end A.1 au-dessus des 64-72-80-88 m suiv ??

DROPS Design 06.03.2017 kl. 09:52:

Bonjour Mme St-Onge, on répète d'abord A.1 et on termine par 1 m jersey end: A.1 se commence par 1 m end, puis 1 jeté etc. et se termine par 1 jeté. Pour que le motif soit identique des 2 côtés, on va donc terminer le rang par 1 m end après le dernier A.1, on a ainsi 1 m jersey end en début et en fin de rang, à 1 m lis des bords. Bon tricot!

Angela 17.02.2017 - 15:20:

Hi Sorry forgot to ask the sizing as it only states s - XXXL Would you be able to let me know THank you

DROPS Design 17.02.2017 kl. 16:17:

Dear Angela, you will find a measurement chart at the bottom of the page, with all measurements for each size in cm taken flat from side to side. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more here. Happy knitting!

Angela 16.02.2017 - 09:02:

Hi I am hoping to start this jumper soon but notice i only need 150g of the second wool do you not knit the entire jumper in both strands?

DROPS Design 16.02.2017 kl. 09:46:

Dear Angela, you are working throughout with 2 qualities, and require same meterage in both yarn - please note that Vivaldi is discontinued, but you can replace it with Brushed Alpaca Silk or 2 strands Kid-Silk, read more here. Happy knitting!
