MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right).
Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. Insert needle through loop, get yarn from ball (i.e. place yarn 1 time over needle from you), pull yarn back through loop, 1 YO (now place yarn from the back and towards you) and pull YO through sts on needle, * insert needle through loop, 1 YO (place yarn from the back and towards you), pull YO through loop, 1 YO (from the back and towards you) and pull YO through outermost st on right needle (i.e. the last st made) *, repeat from *-* until there are 6 sts on needle.
Then work as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round/row work YO twisted to avoid holes.

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

STRIPES:
* 4 rounds/rows light mint, 4 rounds/rows off white *, repeat from *-*.
----------------------------------------------------------

HEAD:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles from snout and back.
Make a MAGIC CIRCLE with light beige - see explanation above = 6 sts on needle. Distribute sts on 3 double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 (work with fourth needle) and work in the round as follows:
ROUND 1: K all sts.
ROUND 2: * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 sts.
ROUND 3: K all sts (always K YOs twisted to avoid holes).
ROUND 4: * K 2, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 sts.
ROUND 5: K all sts.
ROUND 6: * K 3, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 sts.
ROUND 7: K all sts.
ROUND 8: * K 4, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sts.
ROUND 9: K all sts.
ROUND 10: * K 5, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 sts.
ROUND 11-12: K all sts = 36 sts.
Insert 1 marker after the first 3 sts at beg of round and 1 marker after another 6 sts. Then inc 1 st inside the 2 markers - READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Repeat inc every other round 2 more times (= 3 inc in total in each side) = 42 sts.
ROUND 18-19: K all sts = 42 sts.
ROUND 20: * K 5, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 sts.
ROUND 21: K all sts.
ROUND 22: * K 4, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sts.
ROUND 23: K all sts.
Continue dec like this on every other round (i.e. on every round with dec work 1 st less before working 2 sts tog = 6 sts dec per round) until 12 sts remain on needle, cut the yarn and pull it through sts on needle (without tightening).
Embroider eyes, mouth and snout with black, fill the head with poly stuffing, tighten tog sts and fasten (= mid back of head).

EAR:
Worked in the round from bottom up.
Cast on 8 sts with light beige and distribute sts on 2 double pointed needles (work with third needle).
ROUND 1-2: K all sts.
ROUND 3: * K 1, 1 YO, K 2, 1 YO, K 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 12 sts on needle.
ROUND 4: K all sts (always K YOs twisted to avoid holes).
ROUND 5: * K 1, 1 YO, K 4, 1 YO, K 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 16 sts on needle.
ROUND 6: K all sts.
ROUND 7: * K 1, 1 YO, K 6, 1 YO, K 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 20 sts on needle.
Then work in stockinette st in the round until piece measures approx. 5½ cm / 2 1/4’’. Then dec as follows:

ROUND 2: K all sts.
ROUND 3: * Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, K 4, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 12 sts.
ROUND 4: K all sts.
Continue dec like this every other round until 4 sts remain on needle (i.e. on every round with dec work 2 sts less between dec in each side). On next round K2 tog around. Cut the yarn and pull it through sts, tighten tog and fasten.
Fold each side at the bottom of ear towards the middle so that a pleat is formed in the mid of ear.
Sew tog at the bottom with a couple of stitches and fasten ear on head. Work another ear the same way.

Worked back and forth, bottom up.
Cast on 30 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light beige. Work in stockinette st back and forth for 3 cm / 1’’. Then work as follows:

I’m making the leg. For the following instruction, do I measure 3” from the first 30 sts cast on or after the 14 sts bind off? “ Then work in stockinette st back and forth over the 12 sts with 1 edge st in garter st in each side until leg measures approx. 8 cm / 3’’. “

DROPS Design 07.02.2018 kl. 15:14:

Dear Rafiya, the 8 cm / 3" should be measure from beg of leg = cast on row. Happy knitting!

Rafiya Hasan 01.02.2018 - 19:59:

Am a little confused. Can you help out. I'm knitting the head and need an explanation of the increase with stitch markers. I have made the first increase inside the markers. For the next two increase, do I increase on same side as the first ones with the markers or the other two sides? The pattern is unclear on this.

DROPS Design 02.02.2018 kl. 08:40:

Dear Mrs Hasan, continue increasing inside the markers, ie before 1st marker and after 2nd marker until you have inc a total of 3 times. Happy knitting!

Missäs mahtaa olla housujen ohje? :O

Camilla 26.06.2017 - 16:45:

Hej! Jag förstår inte hur jag ska börja mitt på bakstycket. Min andra ärm kommer in på slutet men efter den så har beskrivningen att det ska vara 10-15 maskor kvar. Ska jag sticka runt så att stycket sitter ihop? Eller är det fel i beskrivningen? Ska ärmarna vara i två "hål" i tröjan?

DROPS Design 27.06.2017 kl. 11:23:

Hei Camilla. Når du har satt ermene sammen med bolen har du tråden mellom bakstykket og et erme. Klipp tråden og begynn og strikk 1. omg i masken midt bak (i 13. maske på bakstykket). Du starter og slutter 1. omg med 1 rille maske (= 1 rätst kantm). Nå strikkes det frem og tilbake. Hullet som blir under ermene sys sammen i ytterste ledd av ytterste maske til slutt. God Fornøyelse!

Camill 25.06.2017 - 12:17:

Hej! Tröjan: När jag har satt på armarna på samma sticka som fra m och bakstycket står det börja mitt på bakstycket. Hur gör jag det? Hoppar jag över 10 maskor?

DROPS Design 26.06.2017 kl. 14:29:

Hei Camill. Du kan klippe tråden og begynne midt bak. God Fornøyelse!

Christelle 03.02.2017 - 15:49:

Bonjour, J'ai peut-être le cerveau à l'envers ou les neurones fatigués, mais je n'arrive pas à comprendre les explications du rond magique avec des aiguilles à tricoter . J'ai le sentiment qu'il se fait au crochet et non aux aiguilles, mais je me trompe peut-être... une vidéo peut-être à dispo ? Merci pr votre aide. Cdt Christelle

DROPS Design 03.02.2017 kl. 16:46:

Bonjour Christelle, voici la vidéo montrant comment monter les mailles en rond. Bon tricot!

Moa 14.11.2016 - 13:17:

När man har stickat fram- och bakstycke samt ärmar till tröjan så står det att alla maskor sa sitta på samma stickor. Det står att det då ska vara totalt 76 maskor. Jag förstår inte hur det kan bli 76 stycken. Fram-och bakstycke borde vara 50m och ärmarna borde ha 15m var då man ska maska av 6 m och sticka resterande 14 m. Jag får det då till 80m. Hur kan det stå 76 maskor? Var gör jag fel?

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 14:31:

Hej Moa. Du har lukket forkert af til ermhull. Du lukker 2x 6 m af til ermhull paa tröjen: 48 m. Du har to ermer med hver 14 m: 48+14+14 = 76 m.

Helene 10.06.2016 - 18:49:

Fin opskrift :-) Hvad er formålet med knappen bagpå?
