WOMEN’S SIZES:

Gauge: 17 sts x 22 rows on larger needles in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: * K 3, P 3 *, repeat * - *.

Note on the diagram: The shrug is knit from cuff to cuff. The diagram shows the shrug after assembly – that is, with the sleeve seam sewn. The dotted line indicates the center back – the sloping line indicates the front edge.

Right side: Loosely cast on 50-50-56-56-56 sts on larger needles. P 1 row (wrong side), then knit rib, keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st. When the piece measures 12 cm dec all P 3 to P 2 = 42-42-47-47-47 sts. Continue the rib with K 3/P 2.
When the piece measures 18 cm K 1 row (right side row), then K 1 row (wrong side), adjusting (inc/dec as needed) to 42-42-46-48-48 sts, then continue in stockinette st.
When the piece measures 20-20-20-25-21 cm inc 1 st at each side every 3-2.5-2.5-2-2 cm a total of 12-14-14-15-17 times = 66-70-74-78-82 sts. After last inc the piece measures 53 cm, put 1 marker at each side – measure the piece from here.
Now dec at one side of piece (= front) at the same time cast on new sts at the other side of piece (= back) as follows:
At front edge: on 1st row bind off 3 sts, then bind off every other row: 3 sts 3 times and 2 sts 9-10-11-12-13 times, then every 4 rows: 1 st 3 times.
At back edge: inc every other row: 2 sts 3 times and 1 st 5-6-7-6-9 times, then every 4 rows: 1 st 4-4-4-5-4 times.
After all incs and decs there are 48-51-54-56-60 sts. When the piece measures 18-19-20-21-22 cm put 10 sts on a st holder from lower edge of back up toward the neck every other row 4 times = 8-11-14-16-20 sts remain on needles.
The shrug is now knit to the center back (halfway). Place a new marker at center back of neck. Knit 1 row stockinette st over all sts on needles, then knit the other half, reversing shaping as follows: put 10 sts back on needles every other row 4 times = 48-51-54-56-60 sts. When sts are put back on needles pick up 1 st between the last st on needles the first st on st holder, K tog this st with the first st on st holder. This prevents a hole where the sts are returned to the needles.
When the piece measures 5 cm from the marker in back of the neck inc/cast on for front (= the side of piece you previously bound off) every 4 rows: 1 st 3 times, then every other row: 2 sts 9-10-11-12-13 times and 3 sts 4 times.
At the same time, when the piece measures 8 cm from the marker in back of the neck dec for back (= the side you previously increased) every 4 rows: 1 st 4-4-4-5-4 times, then every other row: 1 st 5-6-7-6-9 times and 2 sts 3 times.
After all incs and decs are complete there are 66-70-74-78-82 sts. Put a marker at each side – measure the work from here.
Now dec 1 st at each side every 3-2.5-2.5-2-2 cm a total of 12-14-14-15-17 times = 42-42-46-48-48 sts. When the piece measures 34 cm P 1 row (right side) and P 1 row (wrong side), adjusting (inc/dec as needed) to 42-42-47-47-47 sts.
Now knit rib (= K 3/P 2) keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st.
When cuff measures 6 cm from the P rows inc all P 2 to P 3 = 50-50-56-56-56 sts. When cuff measures 18 cm from the P rows K 1 row (right side) and then bind off loosely.

Assembly: Sew sleeve seams using edge sts as seam allowance, up to markers. Pick up sts around opening = 180-195-210-225-225 sts (divisible by 15) on smaller circular needles. If you pick up more or less sts, adjust on the 2nd row evenly distributed. Join and knit in the round as follows (seen from the right side): P 1 row and K 1 row, then knit rib (= K 3/P 2).
When edge measures 2 cm inc every 3rd P 2 to P 3 = 192-208-224-240-240 sts. Repeat inc when edge measures 5 and 8 cm, so that each P 2 is now P 3 = 216-234-252-270-270 sts. Bind off loosely in rib.

Note on the diagram: The shrug is knit from cuff to cuff. The diagram shows the shrug after assembly – that is, with the sleeve seam sewn. The dotted line indicates the center back – the sloping line indicates the front edge.

Right side: Loosely cast on 38-44-44-50-50 sts on larger needles.
P 1 row (wrong side), then continue in rib, keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st. When the piece measures 6 cm dec all P 3 to P 2 = 32-37-37-42-42 sts. Continue the rib with K 3/P 2. When the piece measures 10 cm K 1 row (right side) and K 1 row (wrong side), decreasing evenly distributed to 28-30-32-32-34 sts, then continue in stockinette st. When the piece measures 13-14-13-15-15 cm inc 1 st at each side every 3-3-3.5-3-3 cm a total of 9-10-10-12-13 times = 46-50-52-56-60 sts. After last inc the piece measures approx. 37-41-45-48-51 cm, put 1 marker at each side – measure the piece from here.
Now dec at one side of piece (= front) at the same time cast on new sts at the other side of piece (= back) as follows:
At front edge: on 1st row bind off 3 sts, then bind off every other row: 2 sts 5-6-6-7-8 times and 1 st 10-10-11-11-11 times.
At back edge: inc every other row: 2 sts 2-3-4-5-5 times and then every 4 rows: 1 st 5-5-5-5-6 times.
After all decs and incs are complete there are 32-36-39-43-46 sts. When the piece measures 14-15-16-17-18 cm put sts onto a st holder from lower edge of back up toward the neck every other row: 8-9-10-11-11 sts 3 times = 8-9-9-10-13 sts remain on needles.
The shrug is now knit to the center back (halfway). Place a new marker at center back of neck. Knit 1 row stockinette st over all sts on needles, then knit the other half, reversing shaping as follows:
Put 8-9-10-11-11 sts back on needles every other row 3 times = 32-36-39-43-46 sts.
When sts are put back on needles pick up 1 st between the last st on needles the first st on st holder, K tog this st with the first st on st holder. This prevents a hole where the sts are returned to the needles.
When the piece measures 3 cm from the marker in back of the neck inc for front (= the side you previously bound off) every other row: 1 st 10-10-11-11-11 times, 2 sts 5-6-6-7-8 times and 3 sts 1 time. At the same time when the piece measures 6 cm from the marker in back of the neck dec for back (= the side you previously increased) every 4 rows: 1 st 5-5-5-5-6 times and then every other row: 2 sts 2-3-4-5-5 times.
After all incs and decs are complete 46-50-52-56-60 sts. Put 1 marker at each side – measure the piece from here.
Now dec 1 st at each side every 3-3-3.5-3-3 cm a total of 9-10-10-12-13 times = 28-30-32-32-34 sts. When the piece measures 26-30-34-37-40 cm, P 1 row (right side), then P 1 row (wrong side), increasing to 32-37-37-42-42 sts. Now knit rib (= K 3/ P 2), keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st.
When cuff measures 4 cm from the P rows inc all P 2 to P 3 = 38-44-44-50-50 sts. When cuff measures 10 cm from the P rows P 1 row (wrong side) and then bind off loosely.

Assembly: Sew sleeve seams using edge sts as seam allowance, up to markers. Pick up sts around opening = 135-150-165-180-180 sts (divisible by 15) on smaller circular needles. If you pick up more or less sts, adjust on the 2nd row evenly distributed. Join and knit in the round as follows (seen from the right side): P 1 row and K 1 row, then knit rib (= K 3/P 2).
When edge measures 2 cm inc every 3rd P 2 to P 3 = 144-160-176-192-192 sts. Repeat inc when edge measures 5 and 8 cm, so that each P 2 is now P 3 = 162-180-198-216-216 sts. Bind off loosely in rib.

I hope this pattern gets rewritten one day in far more detail when it comes to the short row shaping. Not only did I struggle with it but so did other experienced knitters when I asked for help in my 2 knitting groups. The last person advised me simply to avoid doing the shaping.

Shirley Mortensen 23.12.2014 - 03:57:

I have knit t for over 50 years & cannot figure out the part of the pattern on the back that has me put every other stitch on a holder, 9 stitches 3 times. Makes no sense to me. Is there a video that shows this process? I am knitting the girls size 7-8. Thank you.

DROPS Design 23.12.2014 kl. 19:05:

Dear Mrs Mortensen, to shape back piece, you will work some short rows, leave unworked 9 sts a total of 3 times towards neck (you will work more rows on the bottom of back piece - see triangle in chart) - you will find different videos showing how to work short rows under the tab "videos" at the right side of the picture. Happy knitting!

Michelle 22.05.2014 - 16:44:

I'm making Girls size 9/10 years. The pattern says "When the piece measures 13-14-13-15-15 cm inc 1 st at each side. Can someone confirm that this measurement should be smaller for 9/10 years than for 7/8 years? This doesn't seem right. Thank you!

DROPS Design 23.05.2014 kl. 08:48:

Dear Michelle, pattern is correct, you start inc earlier than in size 7/8 since there are same number of inc but longer sleeve. You can check final measurements in the chart at the bottom of the page. Happy knitting!

Janice 10.04.2014 - 03:48:

What is the point of moving the stitches onto the stitch holder? I don't see that it does anything except make holes or a funky spot. It doesn't change the shape of the neck or back. Are the English instructions worded wrong?

DROPS Design 10.04.2014 kl. 09:23:

Dear Janice, these will form the small triangle in chart (short rows, ie more rows on the bottom back) - you can also work short rows, see tab "videos" at the right side of the picture, they may help you to avoid holes. Happy knitting!

Ille 06.03.2013 - 12:17:

I made this for my girl. The sleeves are extremly narrow. Would advise others to make size bigger or even more sts.

Heike Starke 17.02.2013 - 14:05:

Ich hab jetzt probleme damit wann ich die Maschen auf die Hilfsnadel nehme und wann werden diese dann wieder zurück gestrickt? und wie viel werden auf die Hilfnadel genommen nach den auf und abnahmen hab ich 36 maschen auf der Nadel. Ich hoffe, Sie können mir schnell weiter helfen

DROPS Design 18.02.2013 kl. 09:12:

Hallo Heike, stricken Sie da Kindermodell? Dann finden Sie die Information hier in der Anleitung: Nach 14-15-16-17-18 cm werden, wie folgt, auf der Hinterseite unten, bei jeder 2. R., Maschen auf eine Hilfsnadel gelegt: 8-9-10-11-11 M. 3 Mal = 8-9-9-10-13 M. auf der Hauptnadel. Danach werden die stillgelegten M wieder - gegengleich - auf die Hauptnadel genommen.

Jetta K. Junk 16.02.2013 - 08:20:

Gütern Morgen, Nach der Ablage auf die Hilfsnadel werden dann die beiden Teile weiterhin separat gestrickt? Mir fehlt der Verbindungszeitraum zwischen beiden Teilen. Gut wäre auch hier auch eine Zeichnung wie die Teile zusammengehören. Viele Grüße Jetta K. Junk

DROPS Design 18.02.2013 kl. 09:06:

Liebe Jetta, der Bolero wird in einem Stück gestrickt.

Heike Starke 15.02.2013 - 11:41:

Guten tag. ich versteh leider etwas in ihrer Anleitung nicht ganz.. das steht jetzt werden auf der einen Seite GEGEN VORNE Maschen aufgenommen und GEGEN HINTEN abgenommen.. was bedeutet das genau??? Ich hoffe, Sie können mir schnell weiter helfen

DROPS Design 15.02.2013 kl. 13:31:

Liebe Heike, Sie stricken ja die Arbeit vom Ärmel aus, dieser geht über in den Rumpfteil des Boleros d.h. eine Seite ist später das „Vorderteil“ (nach vorne) und die andere Seite am Rücken (nach hinten). Wir werden bei Gelegenheit die deutsche Anleitung neu übersetzen.

Alexa Otto 25.01.2013 - 23:24:

Liebes Strickteam Was bedeutet Hinterseite unten? Mit welche Seite beginne ich,mit der rechten oder linken Seite, die Maschen auf die Hilfnadeln zu heben oder zu stricken?L.G.Alexa

DROPS Design 27.01.2013 kl. 16:16:

Liebe Alexa, das bedeutet in der hinteren Mitte nach unten zu. Sie können jeweils die Hin-R stricken, bis noch 10 M übrig sind und diese dann auf die Hilfsnadel legen und dann wenden.

Sonja 23.01.2013 - 09:50:

Nach Abketten + Aufnehmen hab ich 43 Maschen auf der Nadel. Ich muss da anfangen zu stricken wo ich zugenommen hab, 11 Maschen stricken- die auf eine Hilfsnadel legen und die Reihe zuende stricken- dann umdrehen und nur noch alle auf der Hauptnadel stricken?

DROPS Design 27.01.2013 kl. 16:26:

Hallo Sonja – ich nehme an, Sie stricken Größe XL und da werden 11 M stillgelegt, das ist richtig. Zur Technik der verkürzten Reihen können Sie auch unser Video anschauen.
