Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1-A.2. Work entire pattern in stocking st. See diagrams for correct size.

Because of the weight of the garment all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the garment will be too long when worn.

Inc 1 st by picking up a st from previous row, K this st.

Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows 2 sts before marker: K 2 tog.

Worked top down in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 102-102-108-108-114-114 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with light grey green. Work rib K 1/P 2 over all sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 14-14-15-15-16-16 cm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 26-22-24-20-22-18 sts evenly = 76-80-84-88-92-96 sts. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Then work an elevation back and forth in the neck from mid back as follows: Insert 1 marker at the beg of the round. K 9-10-11-12-13-14, turn piece and P 18-20-22-24-26-28. Turn piece, K 27-29-31-33-35-37, turn piece and P 36-38-40-42-44-46. Turn piece and K 45-47-49-51-53-55, turn piece and P 54-56-58-60-62-64. Turn piece and K over all sts until marker.
Now work in the round. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 34-41-48-55-62-80 sts evenly = 110-121-132-143-154-176 sts. Then work and inc according to A.1 – choose diagram for correct size. Pattern beg at arrow in diagram for correct size. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 220-242-264-286-308-352 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 23-24-25-26-27-28 cm - MEASURING TIP. K 1 round with light grey green while AT THE SAME TIME inc 8-10-8-10-16-0 sts evenly = 228-252-272-296-324-352 sts. Work the first 32-36-40-44-49-54 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 51-55-57-61-65-69 sts on stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 sts under these sts, work the next 63-71-79-87-97-107 sts (= front piece), slip the next 51-55-57-61-65-69 sts on stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 sts under these sts, work the remaining 31-35-39-43-49-53 sts = 142-158-174-190-210-230 sts.

Work 1 round in stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME inc 2-4-0-2-0-4 sts evenly = 144-162-174-192-210-234 sts. Work A.2 (= 6 sts) while AT THE SAME TIME on last row dec 2-4-0-2-0-4 sts evenly = 142-158-174-190-210-230 sts.

When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue with light grey green. Insert 6 markers in the piece as follows: Work 15-16-17-17-18-20 sts, insert 1st marker, work 21-24-27-31-35-38 sts, insert 2nd marker (marks the side), work 21-24-27-31-35-38 sts, insert 3rd marker, work 29-31-33-33-35-39 sts, insert 4th marker, work 21-24-27-31-35-38 sts, insert 5th marker (marks the side) work 21-24-27-31-35-38 sts, insert 6th marker, work the remaining 14-15-16-16-17-19 sts. Move the markers upwards when working. Then dec as follows: Dec after 3rd and 6th marker and before 1st. and 4th marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 1-1-1.5-1.5-3.5-3.5 cm 4-4-4-3-2-2 times in total =126-142-158-178-202-222 sts on needle.

When piece measures 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm, inc after 3rd and 6th marker and before 4th and 1st marker - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc every 4½ cm 5 times in total. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm, inc 1 st on each side of 2nd and 5th marker (= in the sides). Repeat inc in the sides every 6-9-9-9-9-6 cm 4-3-3-3-3-4 times in total. After all inc are done there are 162-174-190-210-234-258 sts on needle. Work until piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 42-45-50-66-78-90 sts evenly = 204-219-240-276-312-348 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work rib = K 1/P 2. When piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm, cast off with K over K and P over P.

Slip sts from stitch holder back on circular needle size 5 mm (= 51-55-57-61-65-69 sts). Cast on 8 sts mid under sleeve = 59-63-65-69-73-77 sts. Insert 1 marker in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work A.2– NOTE: Adjust pattern according to the middle, arrow in diagram marks middle st on top of sleeve. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm from marker, beg dec – remember DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 2-1½-1½-1½-1½-1 cm 8-10-11-10-12-14 more times = 41-41-41-47-47-47 sts remain. When piece measures 34 cm, inc 4 sts evenly = 45-45-45-51-51-51 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Work rib = K 1/P 2. Cast off with K over K and P over P when piece measures 42 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

Each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you.

We have also step-by-step guides for different techniques which you'll find here.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

Click here to see our yarn converter

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder closest to the neckline, and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

On a jacket measures are never taken along bands, unless specifically stated. Always measure inside band stitches when measuring the length.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

Hej! Jag undrar om det är meningen att mönstret ska gå ihop/passa på baksidan? Det skulle underlätta jättemycket om det gick att få reda på hur många maskor man ska ha på stickorna efter varje varv när man ökat (stickar strl L). Stickar en tröja för första gången och tycker att detta är jättesvårt. Tacksam för svar!

DROPS Design answered:

Hei Therese. Mønstret skal passe på baksiden, men det blir nok et lite "hak" ved omgangsskiftet. I denne oppskriften står det ikke hvor mange masker etter hver øke omgang, men dette kan du fint regne ut selv. Du har 132 masker når du begynner å strikke etter diagram A.1. Diagram A.1 har 11 masker = 132 / 11 = 12. Altså, du strikker A.1 12 ganger. På 5. omgang øker du 2 steder hver gang du strikker A.1 = 2x12=24 øke masker + 132 = 156 masker etter 1. økning. På 6. omgang øker du 1 sted i A.1 = 1x12=12 + 156 = 168 masker etter 2. økning, osv. mvh DROPS Design

Hi! Regarding sleeves. It says nothing about how many sts to cast off as of 4 cm measured from the mark, it only says the quantity of remaining stitches afterwards and cm to measure between each dec. Pattern A.2 don't show where on sleeve the dec should be made, or how many per round of dec. Should it be done evenly so that the calculation for size XXL will be as follows?: 73 sts-47 sts = 26 sts 26 sts / 12 dec = 2,16667 sts per dec

14.01.2022 - 11:30

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Maylén, when working A.2 on sleeve, you have to center it on the sleeve (this lesson might help you to center the pattern) - then when decreasing mid under sleeve, you should decrease as explained under DECREASE TIP. In XXL there are 73 sts and you decrease 2 sts mid under sleeve a total of 13 times = 73 - 26=47 sts remain. Hope this will help. Happy knitting!

Hei! Angående ermet. Det står ingenting om hvor mange masker som skal felles fra og med 4 cm målt fra merket, det står bare hvor mange ganger det skal felles og hvor mange cm det skal gå mellom hver felling. Det står ingenting i mønster A.2 om hvor på ermet fellingene skal gjøres, eller hvor mange fellinger per felling. Skal det felles jevnt slik at regnestykket for str. XXL blir slik: 73 m-47 m = 26 m 26 m/12 fellinger = 2,16667 masker per felling ?

14.01.2022 - 11:10

DROPS Design answered:

Hei Maylén. Jo, i oppskriften under ERME står det husk FELLETIPS! og der står det hvor mange masker det felles på hver felle omgang og hvordan det felles (2 masker pr felleomgang). I str XXL har man 73 masker, man feller 2 masker etter 4 cm fra merket man har satt, deretter felles det etter hver 1,5 cm 12 ganger til = 26 felt masker= 47 masker igjen på pinnen. Når du skal strikke etter A.2 må du avpasse mønsteret etter midten, pil i diagrammet markerer midterste maske oppå ermet. Det felles under ermet. mvh DROPS Design

DROPS Design answered:

Hei Annette. Har du riktig maskeantall/fått med deg alle økningene? I str. xxl startet man med 154 masker = 14 rapporter av diagram A.1. Etter 6. omgang og 1. økning er det 182 masker på omgangen. Etter 7. omgang og 2. økning er det 196 masker på omgangen. Når du starter på 10. omgang strikkes det 14 rapporter a 14 masker og da skal diagrammet gå opp. Et godt tips er å bruke en merketråd/markør mellom hver rapport, da får man en bedre oversikt og man kan lett telle maskene i hver rapport. God Fornøyelse!

Liebe Nicol, beim Hals strickt man Bündchen/Rippenmuster mit kleineren Nadeln, dann muss man abnehmen bei der 1.

Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dear Caroline, the middle stitch on top of sleeve is the one in the middle of the round (start counting from beg of the round = mid under arm) - read more about how to center a diagram here. Happy knitting!

Hello drops, I've just started the sleeve using the M sizes, and I have 63 sts in accordance with your pattern. I now need to knit chart A2 which is a pattern of 6-stitch repeats. As 63 is not divisible by 6, I can't see how this will work without losing the pattern at some point under the sleeve, which will look a mess. Please could you give me some advice about what to do here. Best wishes Caroline

Hi Caroline, Under the sleeve the pattern will not fit as you say and you will be decreasing as you go as well. So stop working A.2 wherever you are at the end of the round and start the next round where you began A.2 on the previous round - the most important thing is to get the stitch with the arrow (middle stitch in A.2) to match the middle stitch on top of sleeve. I hope this helps and happy knitting!
