GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

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

RIB:
* P 4, K 2 *, repeat from *-*.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 144-156-180-204-216 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Paris. K 1 round. Then work RIB - see explanation above. When rib measures 2 cm / 3/4'', switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 72-78-90-102-108 sts (= the sides). Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 (pattern should fit over rib) BUT K the last 2 sts before both markers on every round onwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures approx. 8-7-6-6-6 cm / 3"-2 3/4"-2½"-2½"-2½" (finish after 4th or 8th round in A.1), continue as follows: Beg on round marked with arrow in A.2 and work pattern according to diagram A.2 until 2nd marker (= front piece – NOTE: Diagram shows how eyelet rows goes over into stockinette st), then work in stockinette st over the remaining sts (= back piece). After 1st round in A.2 there are now 2 sts less on front piece than on back piece. Continue pattern according to A.2 on front piece and stockinette st on back piece until all P sts and eyelet row sts have been worked into stockinette st (pattern will finish approx. 2-2-6-9-11 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-2½"-3½"-4½" after bind off for armholes). AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 38-39-40-42-43 cm / 15"-15 1/4"-15 3/4"-16½"-17", work 2 ridges over the middle 8-8-8-10-10 sts in each side (work the other sts as before). On next round after the 2 ridges, bind off the middle 4-4-4-6-6 sts in each side for armhole and finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 68-74-86-96-102 sts. Continue in stockinette st but work the outermost 2 sts in each side in garter st (= sleeve edge). When piece measures 54-56-59-62-64 cm / 21 1/4"-22"-23 1/4"-24½"-25 1/4", bind off the middle 26-26-28-28-30 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then bind off 1 st on next row from neck = 20-23-28-33-35 sts remain on shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 56-58-61-64-66 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-24"-25 1/4"-26". Repeat on the other shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:
= 66-72-84-94-100 sts. Continue in stockinette st and A.2 as before but work the outermost 2 sts in each side in garter st (= sleeve edge).
After A.2 continue in stockinette st with 2 sts in garter st in each side. When piece measures 46-48-49-51-53 cm / 18"-19"-19 1/4"-20"-21", slip the middle 10-10-12-12-14 sts on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then bind off at beg of every row from neck as follows: bind off 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 2 times = 20-23-28-33-35 sts remain on shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 56-58-61-64-66 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-24"-25 1/4"-26". Repeat on the other shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up approx. 74 to 92 sts around the neck (includes sts on stitch holder at the front) on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Paris. P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round, then loosely bind off with K.

Intussen heb ik begrepen dat de teruggaande naald ook op het telpatroon staat.

Willy V S 26.03.2019 - 12:43:

Nog even ter aanvulling: ik brei dit truitje op gewone breinaalden, dus niet op rondbreinaalden.

DROPS Design 28.03.2019 kl. 13:07:

Dag Willy,

Als je ervoor zort dat je steeds de even naalden op de verkeerde kant breit, is dit geen probleem.

Willy V S 26.03.2019 - 12:41:

Ik ga dit truitje breien en heb het patroon goed bekeken. Enkel rijst bij mij de vraag of de teruggaande naald volgens telpatroon gebreid moet worden of zoals de steken zich voordoen?

DROPS Design 28.03.2019 kl. 13:06:

Dag Willy,

Zowel de heengaande als de teruggaande naalden zijn weergegeven in het telpatroon en bij de symbolen staat hoe je alle steken breit (zowel op de goede als op de verkeerde kant.

Suzanne Bourque 08.01.2019 - 19:34:

Est-ce que je peux faire ce modèle avec Drops Cotton Light? J’ai 350 grammes.

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 08:31:

Bonjour Mme Bourque, ce top est réalisé en DROPS Paris, un fil du groupe C, or DROPS Cotton Light appartient au groupe B et n'est donc pas une alternative (plus d'infos sur les alternatives ici), vous pouvez en revanche l'utiliser pour des tops réalisés dans des fils du groupe B - utilisez le convertisseur pour vérifier la quantité si besoin. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas le debut deA2( à la flèche) pourquoi a t’on seulement 2m de moins que pour le dos alors que nous reproduisons le motif 3 fois pour aller jusqu’au marqueur et donc 6 m de moins? Merci 😊

DROPS Design 11.07.2018 kl. 07:48:

Bonjour So, au rang avec la flèche dans A.2, on diminue 2 m (= 3 m ens à l'end) à la fin de A.2 sur le côté sans faire aucun jeté pour compenser la diminution, on a ainsi 2 m en moins pour le devant - le devant se tricote en côtes ajourées qui vont être "mangées" progressivement par le jersey. Bon tricot!

Leah Vallance 23.06.2017 - 19:32:

When the pattern diagram shows "no stitch, skip this square", if you skip the stitch, what happens when I get to that stitch on the next row? I'm a new knitter, thanks

DROPS Design 24.06.2017 kl. 12:26:

Dear Leah, this stitch doesn't exist in the piece, it only exists in the diagram. This stitch would appear in the next rows when we do a YO.

Badette 81 05.04.2017 - 06:43:

Merci, j'ai compris, ça fait un point très joli. Je fais ce modèle avec un coton bleu, pour l'été il sera très bien. Merci pour tous vos modèles.

Badette 81 19.03.2017 - 07:39:

Bonjour, je n'arrive pas à comprendre, comment les côtes 4 envers et 2 endroit deviennent 5 envers, ensuite quand on fait maille glissée + 2 soit 1 diminution on se retrouve avec une seule maille et non 2 ? donc pour le rang d'après où est passée cette maille manquante ? Merci

DROPS Design 20.03.2017 kl. 09:46:

Bonjour Badette 81, dans le point fantaisie, on va diminuer 1 seule maille, pas 2 pour former la petite torsade ajourée. La vidéo ci-dessous vous montre comment tricoter A.2. Bon tricot!

Paula 20.06.2016 - 22:51:

Acabo de terminar el diagrama por A2 y me toca volver a empezarlo, ¿habría que empezarlo por la primera fila que se muestra en el gráfico o por la que está señalada por la fecha como en la primera ocasión? Entiendo que el sentido de lectura del gráfico es de izquierda a derecha ya que se calceta siempre del lado del derecho. Muchas gracias.

Hola Paula, mira el video de ayuda:

DROPS Knitting Tutorial: How to work the chart A.2 in DROPS 161-28 from Garnstudio Drops design on Vimeo.

STELLA 06.06.2016 - 06:43:

Buongiorno. Sto avviando questo lavoro, ma sonoina neofita del mestiere. Vorrei capire cosa intendere per "nessuna maglia, saltate questo quadrato". Evidentemente non è un gettato, ma allora come faccio a saltate questa maglia? Vi ringrazio in anticipo per l'aiuto che vorrete darmi e, probabilmente ci sentiremo ancora, visto che appunto, mi reputo una neofita del mestiere.

DROPS Design 06.06.2016 kl. 06:58:

Buongiorno Stella. Il quadratino nero non corrisponde a nessuna m sul ferro. Quindi, partendo dal basso verso l'alto e da destra verso sinistra, dovrà lavorare: 4 m rov sul diritto del lavoro, 1 m dir, 1 gettato, 1 m dir, 4 m rov, 1 m dir, 1 gettato, 1 m dir, 4 m rov e così via. Buon lavoro!
