----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 232-252-272-296-332-360 sts (incl 5 band sts in each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 3 mm with silver pink. P 1 row from WS. Then work rib (= K 2/P 2) with 5 band sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above and 2 K in each side towards mid front (seen from RS). When rib measures 4 cm, K 1 row from RS while at the same time dec 45-49-53-57-65-69 sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 187-203-219-239-267-291 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work in stocking st and pattern according to diagram A.1 (1st row = WS), but continue the 5 band sts in each side towards mid front in garter st until finished measurements – READ KNITTING TIP 1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION and remember to dec for BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above.
When piece measures 8 cm in all sizes, insert 2 markers 49-53-57-62-69-75 sts in from each side = 89-97-105-115-129-141 sts between markers on back piece. On next row from RS, dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3-3-3-3-4½-4½ cm 4-4-4-4-3-3 times in total in each side = 171-187-203-223-255-279 sts - NOTE: Adjust to dec on a row with silver pink.
When piece measures 22-22-23-23-23-23 cm, inc 1 st on each side of both markers – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 3½-3½-4-4-6-6 cm a total of 4-4-4-4-3-3 times = 187-203-219-239-267-291 sts.
When piece measures approx. 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm, adjust so that 1 or 2 rows with silver pink have been worked after 1 row with dots and so that last row is worked from WS, work next row as follows from RS: Work 45-49-53-57-64-70 sts (= right front piece), cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts for armhole, work 81-89-97-105-119-131 sts (= back piece), cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts for armhole and work the remaining 45-49-53-57-64-70 sts (= left front piece). Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 60-60-64-64-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with silver pink. K 1 round, then work rib = K 2/P 2. When rib measures 4 cm, K 1 round while dec 12-12-14-12-14-14 sts evenly = 48-48-50-52-54-54 sts on row. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work pattern according to diagram A.1. When piece measures 8-8-7-8-8-10 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve. Repeat inc every 3½-3-3-2½-2½-2 cm 11-13-13-14-14-16 times in total = 70-74-76-80-82-86 sts. Work until sleeve measures 46-46-45-45-44-44 cm - adjust to work the same no of rounds with silver pink as on body (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). K 1 round while casting off the middle 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts mid under sleeve = 62-66-68-70-72-76 sts remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 4 mm as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 295-319-339-359-391-423 sts on needle. P 1 row from WS with silver pink(continue bands in garter st) while dec 8-8-10-12-14-16 sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 287-311-329-347-377-407 sts - remember KNITTING TIP 1 and read KNITTING TIP 2.
Work next row as follows from RS: Work 5 band sts as before, work pattern according to diagram A.2 until 6 sts remain on row (choose diagram for correct size and beg on row marked with arrow in diagram for correct size), work first st in A.2 (so that pattern beg and ends the same way in each side towards mid front) and finish with 5 band sts in garter st as before. Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME on row marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 36-40-42-48-50-56 sts evenly (do not dec over bands ) = 251-271-287-299-327-351 sts on needle. Continue pattern.
On row marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 40-40-44-48-52-56 sts evenly (do not dec over bands ) = 211-231-243-251-275-295 sts on needle.

On row marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 48-60-60-60-64-68 sts evenly (do not dec over bands ) = 123-127-139-139-159-167 sts on needle.
When A.2 has been worked, piece measures approx. 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm up to shoulder.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
For better shape work an elevation in the back of neck as follows: Insert 1 marker mid back. Beg from RS with silver pink and K 12-12-14-14-15-15 sts past marker, turn, tighten yarn and P 24-24-28-28-30-30 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 36-36-40-40-44-44 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 48-48-52-52-58-58 sts back.

Dan zou de mouw 6 cm. te lang worden. Ik denk dat ik hem nu maar uithaal en aan de onderkant met een andere kleur begin zodat het wel uitkomt.

Jacoline 12.08.2018 - 15:12:

Als de mouwen bij het lijf op de rondbreinaald komen loopt de kleurenvolgorde aan de bovenpas niet gelijk. Dit doordat de mouwen langer zijn. Hoe hebben jullie dat opgelost? Op de foto lopen de kleuren wel mooi door. Ik heb als enige oplossing; de mouw uithalen en met een andere streep beginnen dan het lijf zodat het boven wel uit komt? Met vriendelijke groet, Jacoline

DROPS Design 12.08.2018 kl. 17:14:

Dag Jacoline, Het staat inderdaad niet duidelijk aangegeven bij de mouw dat je uit moet komen met het patroon. Op de afbeelding is er 1 herhaling extra van patroon A.1 in de mouw te zien. Hoe kom je uit als je de mouw door breit tot het patroon overeenkomt. Ik zal het even aan de designafdeling doorgeven om dit evt. te verduidelijken.

Jacoline 10.07.2018 - 08:29:

De kleuren doorbreien in de boord/ ribbelsteek vind ik niet zo mooi worden omdat het een ribbelsteek is.\r\nHeeft u ook een mooier alternatief?\r\nAls ik de kleuren niet doorbrei krijg ik gaatjes omdat ik dan de hoofdkleur daar steeds moet aanhechten.\r\nIk hoor graag van u.\r\nHart. Gr,\r\nJacoline

DROPS Design 10.07.2018 kl. 16:21:

Dag Jacoline, Als je de voorbies in een kleur wilt hebben is het misschien handiger om achteraf steken op te nemen over de voorpanden en boordsteken te breien. Maar misschien ben je al een eindje op weg en haal je liever niet uit. In dat geval is het even puzzelen wat het beste voor je werkt zodat je geen gaatjes krijgt, bijv. door een klein koopje in de draden te maken of de draden om elkaar heen te leggen o.i.d.

Hvor finner jeg målene i de forskjellige størrelsene?

DROPS Design 16.05.2016 kl. 14:07:

Hej. Du hittar de på måttskissen längst ner i oppskriften. Lycka till!

Jette Jonstrup 02.05.2016 - 21:53:

Kan jeg ikke strikke den rundt og klippe den op. Det synes jeg er nemmere end at strikke frem og tilbage. Hvor mange klippemasker skal jeg slå op og kan jeg ellers bare føge opskriften.

DROPS Design 03.05.2016 kl. 17:01:

Hej Jette. Jo, det kan du godt. Jeg ville saette 5-6 klippemasker op. God fornöjelse.

Frida Engwall 05.12.2015 - 00:09:

Nu har jag suttit och försökt förstå färgerna i mönstret/diagrammet och tittat på bilden här på sidan. Det måste vara så att det är fel "beteckning" på ljus gammelrosa i mönstret? På sidan 5 under "diagram explanations" är ljus gammelrosa helt ifylld ruta med vit prick. Men om man tittar i mönstret är det en ruta med en mindre ruta i? Det är nämligen så att "ruta med mindre ruta inuti" inte finns med alls under diagram explanations på sida 5....

DROPS Design 15.12.2015 kl. 07:53:

Hej. Du har helt rätt, tack för info! Felet är nu rättat. Mvh DROPS Design

Maiken 27.06.2015 - 14:13:

Kommer der en opskrift på modellen uden knapper??

DROPS Design 29.06.2015 kl. 13:22:

Hej. Ja modell u-761 utan knappar kommer att läggas ut så fort den är översatt och korrekturläst. Mvh DROPS Design

Cecilie Thomassen 19.06.2015 - 23:19:

På bilde ser det ut som om bunnfarven er grå, men i oppskriften står det at det skal være lys beige. Stemmer dette?

DROPS Design 23.06.2015 kl. 12:28:

Hei Cecilie. Farven er korrekt, det er nok lyset paa billedet. Du kan altid skifte til graa hvis du selv synes det vil vaere paenere.

Denise Soletto 18.06.2015 - 18:09:

Simplesmente maravilhoso. Não vejo a hora de poder tricota-lo.
