YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-104-108-112 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work A.1, AT THE SAME TIME on first round in diagram inc 12-16-18-18-20-20 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP 1 = 104-112-118-122-128-132 sts. When A.1 has been worked vertically, switch back to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work in garter st AT THE SAME TIME inc 10 sts evenly on 2nd ridge and 6-7-13-15-21-26 sts evenly on 5th ridge (NOTE: Inc on a round with K) = 120-129-141-147-159-168 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When 7-7-8-8-8-10 ridges have been worked in total, piece measures approx. 7-7-8-8-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3"-3"-3"-3½", switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Work 2 rounds in stockinette st. Now work rib as follows: * K 1, P 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round. When rib measures 2 cm / 3/4'', inc by making 1 YO before K st in every section P the entire round (= 40-43-47-49-53-56 sts inc) = 160-172-188-196-212-224 sts. On next round P YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes. Continue with K 1/P 3. Repeat inc before every st with K when rib measures 4-4-4-5-6-6 cm / 1½"-1½"-1½"-2"-2½"-2½" = 200-215-235-245-265-280 sts. Continue with K 1/P 4 until rib measures 6-6-6-7-8-8 cm / 2½"-2½"-2½"-2 3/4"-3"-3" in total. Work 2 rounds in stockinette st. Now switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on first round inc 8-11-11-15-21-28 sts evenly = 208-226-246-260-286-308 sts. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and continue with A.1. When A.1 has been worked vertically, switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on first round inc 8-10-10-16-22-28 sts evenly = 216-236-256-276-308-336 sts. Now continue on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 as follows: Work the first 30-34-37-41-47-52 sts (= back piece), slip the next 48-50-54-56-60-64 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under sleeve, work the next 60-68-74-82-94-104 sts (= front piece), slip the next 48-50-54-56-60-64 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under sleeve, work the remaining 30-34-37-41-47-52 sts (= back piece) on round.

BODY:
There are now 136-152-164-180-204-224 sts for body. Insert a marker in each side of body where new sts were cast on under sleeves (= 4 new sts on each side of marker). MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec on each side of each markers (= 4 sts dec) - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec when piece measures 11-10-9-8-7-6 cm / 4½"-4"-3½"-3"-2 3/4"-2½" = 128-144-156-172-196-216 sts.
When piece measures 18-17-16-15-14-13 cm / 7"-6 3/4"-6 1/4"-6"-5½"-5", inc 1 st on each side of each marker - READ INCREASE TIP 2 (= 4 sts inc).
Repeat inc every 2-2½-3-3-3½-4 cm / 3/4"-7/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1 1/4"-1½" 4 more times = 148-164-176-192-216-236 sts.
When piece measures 32-33-34-35-36-37 cm / 12½''-13½''-13 3/8''-13¾''-14¼''-14½'', inc 10-8-11-10-14-8 sts evenly = 158-172-187-202-230-244 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work 3 ridges. Loosely bind off.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve in stockinette st in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. There are 48-50-54-56-60-64 sts for each sleeve.

Is it possible to increase with an invisible increase in stead of a yarn over to make the hole even smaller? Or would that throw the pattern off?

DROPS Design 10.07.2018 kl. 15:47:

Dear Tara, you are welcome to use any other increase technique, we are explaining here the one we used. Happy knitting!

Gunn Berg 16.05.2018 - 10:24:

Jeg finner ikke noe mønster på denne oppskriften. Er det falt ut?

DROPS Design 17.05.2018 kl. 14:56:

Hej Gun, Diagram A.1 ligger til højre for måleskitsen, lige under ærmet. God fornøjelse!

Johanna 30.09.2017 - 03:10:

In body section, after inc at 6" measurement , repeat for L and XL are printed at 3 1/8". This does not correspond with the cm measurement given. This is only shown in pattern 161-9.

Susann 15.09.2017 - 22:20:

Mir waren die Ärmel viel zu kurz, ich musste sie 8cm länger stricken als angegeben (Gr. S) . Vielleicht ist da ein Fehler bei den entsprechenden Maßen?

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Susann, am Ende der Anleitung finden Sie alle Maßnahmen für jede Größe, die können Sie mit einem ähnlichen Pulli vergleichen, die Sie gerne haben, und dann anpassen wenn nötig. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Buonasera, vorrei fare questo modello utilizzando il filato Air. Il mio campione con i ferri 5 corrisponde, ma penso che il lavoro risulti troppo fitto nelle parti dove è previsto usare i ferri 4. 5, potrei usare i ferri 5 per tutto il lavoro? Grazie

DROPS Design 14.12.2016 kl. 12:23:

Buongiorno Monica. Le parti lavorate con i ferri 4,5 sono davvero limitate e servono per dare un po' più di sostegno al lavoro. Può seguire le indicazioni del modello. Buon lavoro!

Leonore 01.03.2016 - 09:06:

Vielen Dank. Die zwei Krausrippen nach A.1 sind beschrieben, aber ich meinte vor A.1. Auf dem Foto sieht es aus, als ob davor auch noch eine (?) Krausrippe wäre.

DROPS Design 01.03.2016 kl. 14:19:

Liebe Leonore, die 2 Krausrippen vor A.1 sind hier beschrieben: "... 2 Krausrippen (= 4 Rd kraus re) str, GLEICHZEITIG in der 1. Rd 8-11-11-15-21-28 M gleichmäßig verteilt zunehmen (= 208-226-246-260-286-308 M). Zu Rundnadel Nr. 5 wechseln und im Muster A.1 weiterstr."

Leonore 29.02.2016 - 09:26:

Auf dem Foto des Modells sind am Ärmel oben deutlich 2 zusätzliche Krausrippen zu sehen; d.h. der Ärmel müsste mit 4 Reihen kraus rechts begonnen werden, was nicht in der Anleitung steht. Ebenso fehlt die Angabe, dass zum Schluss vor A 1 eine (oder zwei?) Krausrippen gestrickt werden sollten. Ist das richtig? Ansonsten ist das ein tolles Modell, das sehr gut sitzt. Mir waren die Ärmel etwas zu eng, aber man kann das Teil ja zwischendrin anprobieren und leicht an die eigenen Vorlieben anpassen.

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 15:02:

Liebe Leonore, die Krausrippen nach A.1 sind beschrieben (Wenn A.1 in der Höhe zu Ende gestr wurde, zu Rundnadel Nr. 4,5 wechseln. 2 Krausrippen (= 4 Rd kraus re) str, ..) aber die weiteren Krausrippen am Ärmel sind tatsächlich nicht in der Anleitung. Ich werde das an die Designabteilung weitergeben, Danke für den Hinweis.

GRAVELINES Hélène 22.07.2015 - 13:51:

Bonjour, J'ai voulu commencer ce pull qui me plaît particulièrement, mais je ne trouve pas le diagramme A1 dans les explications, comme j'avais pu trouver les diagrammes du poncho Isla lorsque je l'ai fait l'année dernière. Pouvez-vous me dire où il se trouve ? Merci d'avance.

Gravelines 22.07.2015 kl. 14:29:

Oups ! C'est bon, je l'ai vu ! Il est tellement petit... Je n'avais pas mis mes lunettes.

Caroline 13.07.2015 - 17:14:

L'utilisation d'aiguilles double pointes est-elle absolument nécessaire pour réaliser ce modèle ? Pourquoi des aiguilles circulaires 5 et 4,5 ne peuvent-elles pas suffire ? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 11:19:

Bonjour Caroline, les aiguilles doubles pointes sont utilisées quand le nombre de mailles est trop petit pour être tricoté sur aiguille circulaire, mais vous pouvez éventuellement tricoter tout du long sur aiguille circulaire en utilisant la technique du magic loop si vous le souhaitez. Bon tricot!
