PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

DECREASE TIP 1 (applies to body):
Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

DECREASE TIP 2 (applies to round yoke):
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 296 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 24) = 12.3. I.e. in this example K approx. every 11th and 12th st tog.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by picking up a st from previous row/round, K this st.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 212-228-248-280-308-336 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with grey. K 1 round. Then work rib (= K 2/P 2) for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 44-48-50-58-62-66 sts evenly = 168-180-198-222-246-270 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 84-90-99-111-123-135 sts (= in the sides). Then continue pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. When piece measures 8 cm, dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts dec - NOTE: Work sts that do not fit the pattern in grey when dec). Repeat dec when piece measures 16 cm = 160-172-190-214-238-262 sts. When piece measures 22 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers - READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc - NOTE: Work sts that do not fit the pattern in grey when inc). Repeat inc every 3-3-3-3½-3½-4 cm, 3-4-4-4-4-4 more times (= 4-5-5-5-5-5 inc in total) = 176-192-210-234-258-282 sts. When piece measures approx. 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm – adjust so that next round is a round with dots, cast off the middle 12 sts in each side for armholes (i.e. cast off 6 sts on each side of both markers) = 76-84-93-105-117-129 sts remain on front and back piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 64-64-68-68-76-76 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with ruby red. K 1 round. Then work rib (= K 2/P 2) for 3 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and K 1 round with ruby red while AT THE SAME TIME dec 16-16-16-16-20-20 sts evenly = 48-48-52-52-56-56 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve) and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2. After A.2 continue in the round in stocking st with grey. When piece measures 8-8-10-10-12-10 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker – see INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 3-2½-2½-2-2-2 cm 12-14-13-15-14-16 more times (= 13-15-14-16-15-17 inc total) = 74-78-80-84-86-90 sts. When piece measures 45-45-45-44-44-44 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulder), cast off 12 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. cast off 6 sts on each side of marker) = 62-66-68-72-74-78 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 276-300-322-354-382-414 sts. K 1 round with grey while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-6-6-6-6 sts evenly - SEE DECREASE TIP 2 = 272-296-316-348-376-408 sts. Work 0-1-2-0-1-2 cm in stocking st with grey. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 (choose diagram for your size).
AT THE SAME TIME on row marked with arrow A in diagram dec 16-24-28-28-40-40 sts evenly = 256-272-288-320-336-368 sts. Continue pattern.
On row marked with arrow B in diagram dec 22-23-24-32-33-35 sts evenly = 234-249-264-288-303-333 sts. Continue pattern.
On row marked with arrow C in diagram dec 30-33-36-36-39-45 sts evenly = 204-216-228-252-264-288 sts. Continue pattern.
On row marked with arrow D in diagram dec 28-32-36-44-40-48 sts evenly = 176-184-192-208-224-240 sts. Continue pattern.
On row marked with arrow E in diagram dec 36-40-44-52-64-64 sts evenly = 140-144-148-156-160-176 sts. Continue pattern.
On row marked with arrow F in diagram (= last round) dec 36-36-36-40-40-48 sts evenly = 104-108-112-116-120-128 sts. Cut the yarn.
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and ruby red, beg mid back and work rib in the round (= K 2/P 2) but make sure that either K 2 or P 2 are mid front. Insert 1 marker mid front between the 2 middle sts. AT THE SAME TIME after 2 rounds rib work an elevation at the back of neck with short rows as follows: Beg mid back and work rib as before until 19-19-21-21-23-23 sts remain before marker, turn and work rib back until 19-19-21-21-23-23 sts remain before marker in the other side. Turn and work rib until 27-27-29-29-31-31 sts remain before marker, turn and work rib back until 27-27-29-29-31-31 sts remain on the other side before marker. Turn and work rib until 35-35-37-37-39-39 sts remain on needle, turn and work rib back until 35-35-37-37-39-39 sts remain on the other side. Turn piece and work rib until beg of round beg (= mid back). Then continue rib in the round over all sts as before until rib measures approx. 3 cm mid front. Loosely cast off with K over K and P over P. Yoke measures approx. 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm and entire jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm.

Margrethe Rudd 15.06.2019 - 12:18:

Det undre mig at der skal tages ind efter ribborten. Det plejer at være modsat, så ribkanten kan sidde tæt på håndled/krop? Glæder mig til at komme i gang. Venligst Margrethe “til håndled/ krop?

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 08:27:

Hei Margrethe. Vrangbord trekker seg mer sammen enn glattstrikk, og for at det ikke skal være en markant viddeforskjell på vrangborden og resten av plagget felles det masker etter vrangborden. God fornøyelse

Ulla Holmström 18.05.2019 - 19:57:

Mönster 150-15. Jag har bystmått 113. Vilken storlek skall jag välja? Tycker inte det framgår.

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 11:04:

Hei Ulla. Det er en målskisse helt nederst på siden, med alle plaggets mål i alle størrelser. Om du måler 113 cm rundt, vil det si du måler ca 57 cm tvers over. Da ville jeg valgt størrelse XXL som måler 62 cm tvers over (124 cm rundt). God fornøyelse

Lene Hein 24.03.2018 - 20:38:

Kan jeg strikke denne model i Karisma i stedet?

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 13:12:

Hej Lene, ja det kan du, DROPS Karisma tilhører samme garngruppe B som DROPS Lima. God fornøjelse!

Maria 23.04.2017 - 23:18:

Er det feil i oppgitt garnmengde? Jeg måttekjøpe inn to nøster ekstra av bunnfargen, enda strikkefastheten stemmer (str S). Og hvor er omgangsskiftet på bærestykket?

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 12:03:

Hei Maria. Dette har vært en populær genser og vi har ikke fått noen tilbakemeldig om at det har vært for lite garn, men vi skal se nærmere på det. Når du har satt bolen og ermene på sammen pinne vil omgangsskiftet komme mellom det ene ermet og bolen. God fornøylse.

Ina Austrud 01.11.2016 - 07:25:

Jeg undrer meg over antall masker som skal legges opp på armen. XL = 68m Må være feil. jeg la opp 48 masker og likevel er det ikke stramt rundt håndleddet.

Heckmann 31.08.2016 - 16:14:

Bonjour , Je tricote pull en suivant vos explications pour le nombre de mailles , mais je souhaite tricoter l'empiècement rond au point mousse ; ma question : puis-je suivre le même diagramme ? car le point mousse "avance " différemment que le point jersey . merci

DROPS Design 31.08.2016 kl. 16:19:

Bonjour Mme Heckmann, il va vous falloir faire quelques ajustements car le nbe de rangs point mousse n'est pas le même que celui en jersey pour la même hauteur. Vous aurez probablement besoin de plus de fils également, car le point mousse est plus "gourmand" que le jersey. Réalisez un échantillon au point mousse pour recalculer à quelle fréquence diminuer pour l'empiècement. Bon tricot!

Olga 10.02.2016 - 18:37:

Tengo la talla S, pero la manga me queda demasiado ancha, como podría hacerla más estrecha para que luego me coincida bien con el canesu?Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 23.02.2016 kl. 18:27:

Hola Olga. Este modelo tiene la manga ya estrecha debido al dibujo realizado en el canesú. Si quieres hacerla aún más estrecha tendrías que recalcular la parte del dibujo del canesú.

Marga Van Dijk 09.12.2014 - 16:55:

Er staat dat je moet minderen na 8 cm moet je daar de boord ook bij rekenen of is dat vanaf de boord. Groetjes van Marga.

DROPS Design 09.12.2014 kl. 16:58:

Hoi Marga. Je meet in totaal (dus inclusief de boord).

Ditte 10.11.2014 - 22:27:

Vedr. mønster på bærestykke indtagning A. Man har først strikket en firkant af rubinrød ( fuldfarvet firkant), så strikker man 2 omgange med lyng og næste omgang strikkes i grå, hvor man så også skal tage ind. Når man så har taget ind og skal strikke med naturhvid ovenover (stjernerne), så kommer de vel til at blive forskubbet( i forhold til den rubinrøde forkant nedenunder) lidt for hver gang, der er taget en maske ind. Er det meningen, eller er der noget jeg har misforstået?

DROPS Design 25.11.2014 kl. 11:24:

Hej Ditte, Diagrammet vil stadigvæk gå op efter indtagningerne, og stjernern kan du også stadigvæk få til at passe over firkanterne i rubinrød, men man behøver ikke få det til at passe (det gør det faktisk ikke på billedet) God fornøjelse!

Romy 05.06.2014 - 22:12:

Im Muster A3 sind jeweils nach den Abnahmerunden Spalten weggelassen. Wie strickt man hier weiter?

DROPS Design 08.06.2014 kl. 11:08:

Liebe Romy, die weggelassenen Spalten können Sie nicht mehr stricken, denn die Maschen existieren ja nicht mehr. Sie nehmen ja mehrfach M ab, daher besteht ein Mustersatz aus weniger M. Daher ergeben sich kürzere Mustersätze in der Breite. Sie stricken also einfach immer die Kästchen, die gezeichnet sind.
