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 and A.2 (choose diagram for correct size). Work entire pattern in stocking st and repeat A.1 up to armhole on both body and sleeves.

To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 220 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 44 sts) = 5. I.e. in this example K approx. every 4th and 5th st tog.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Beg 4 sts before marker and work as follows: K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides on body and mid under sleeve):
Beg 2 sts before marker and work as follows: 1 YO, K 4, 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern on yoke, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 220-240-260-284-320-348 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with silver pink. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 44-48-52-56-64-68 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 176-192-208-228-256-280 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 8 cm, insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 88-96-104-114-128-140 sts (= in the sides). Then dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 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 = 160-176-192-212-244-268 sts - NOTE: Adjust to dec on a round 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 = 176-192-208-228-256-280 sts.
When piece measures approx. 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm - adjust so that 1 or 2 rounds with silver pink after 1 round with dots have been worked - work next round as follows: Cast off 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts for armhole, work 80-88-96-104-118-130 sts (= front piece), cast off 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts for armhole, work 80-88-96-104-118-130 sts (= back piece) and cast off the remaining 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts for armhole. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 60-60-64-64-68-68 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with silver pink. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 12-12-14-12-14-14 sts evenly = 48-48-50-52-54-54 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. When piece measures 8-8-7-8-8-10 cm, inc 2 sts mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. 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.

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle size 4 mm as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 284-308-328-348-380-412 sts on needle. K 1 round with silver pink while dec 8-8-10-12-14-16 sts evenly = 276-300-318-336-366-396 sts on needle - READ KNITTING TIP. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for correct size and beg on round marked with arrow in diagram for correct size). Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 36-40-42-48-50-56 sts evenly - remember DECREASE TIP-1 = 240-260-276-288-316-340 sts on needle. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 40-40-44-48-52-56 sts evenly = 200-220-232-240-264-284 sts on needle.
On round marked with arrow 3 in diagram dec 40-44-44-52-52-60 sts evenly = 160-176-188-188-212-224 sts on needle.
On round marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 48-60-60-60-64-68 sts evenly = 112-116-128-128-148-156 sts on needle.
When A.2 has been worked, piece measures approx. 53-55-57-59-61-63 cm up to shoulder.

For better shape work an elevation in the back of neck with silver pink as follows: Insert 1 marker mid back. 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. Turn, tighten yarn and K 60-60-64-64-72-72 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 72-72-76-76-86-86 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 84-84-88-88-100-100 sts, turn, tighten yarn and P 96-96-100-100-114-114 sts back. Turn and K until mid back.

Switch to a short circular needle size 3 mm and K 1 round while dec 28-32-32-32-44-52 sts evenly = 84-84-96-96-104-104 sts on needle. Then work rib in the round = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm. Then LOOSELY cast off with K over K and P over P.
Jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm up to shoulder.

Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Hallo, welche Stelle ist gemeint bei den Ärmeln mit "an der unteren Ärmelmitte"?

DROPS Design 31.01.2018 kl. 15:49:

Liebe Victoria, "untere Ärmelmitte" ist zwischen Ende der Runde und Anfang der Runde - wo Sie eine Markierung eingesetzt haben, dann wie unter ZUNAHMETIPP (gilt für die Seiten des Rumpteils und die untere Ärmelmitte) zunehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sophia 07.10.2017 - 15:00:

Vielen Dank für ihre rasche Antwort. Leider verstehe ich nicht ganz, was sie mit "dann sollen Sie die Abnahmen bei der Passe sicher anpassen." genau meinen. Tatsächlich komme ich schon bei 26 bis 27 Reihen auf 10 cm.

DROPS Design 09.10.2017 kl. 09:59:

Liebe Sophia, wenn Ihre Maschenprobe in der Höhe stimmt, ist also alles in Ordnung. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sophia 06.10.2017 - 12:08:

Hallo, ich habe jetzt gerade das Rumpfteil fertig gestrickt, das heißt dieses misst jetzt ganz knapp über 37 cm. Allerdings habe ich in dieser Länge nur 12 farbige Streifen, im Bild sind es 14. Bei mir ist der letzte farbige Streifen ein hellrosa/dunkelrosa Streifen. Außerdem kommen mir die 37 cm sehr kurz vor, habe ich etwas falsch gemacht oder kann ich einfach beruhigt weiterstricken? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 06.10.2017 kl. 13:35:

Liebe Sophia, stimmt Ihre Maschenprobe in der Höhe? dh Sie sollen 28 Rd = 10 cm haben. Sollte die Maschenprobe nicht in der Höhe stimmen, dann sollen Sie die Abnahmen bei der Passe sicher anpassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Tinsen Taf 02.01.2017 - 21:35:

Hallo, in der Anleitung steht man soll bei beige zu- bzw. abnehmen. im Material sind aber keine Mengenangaben zu beige. ist damit silberrosa gemeint?

DROPS Design 03.01.2017 kl. 09:21:

Liebe Frau Taf, stimmt, diese Reihe im Hellbeige beschrieben sollen mit Silberrosa gestrickt. Korrektur wird bald gemacht. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Emma 18.09.2016 - 10:58:

Hi! I have a couple of quick questions before I start. - Should I drop the colour each time on the main body or carry it up the side? I don't want to run out of wool. - What does "adjust to dec on a round with light beige mean? Do you have any advice for decreasing and increasing with the colours or do I do the dec/inc on a light beige row? Thank you!

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 09:30:

Dear Emma, You can carry the yarn (see here) or cut it when stripes are high. Rather work the dec row when working with light beige, ie work 1 more row or 1 row less if necessary adjusting to work the dec row with that colour. Happy knitting!

RoSi 14.07.2016 - 20:45:

Guten Tag, ich stricke gerade diesen tollen Pulli. Das ist das erste Mal, dass ich einen Pulli mit Rundpasse stricke. Wo beginne ich denn mit dem Steicken nachdem ich die Maschen von den Ärmeln mit auf die Runde adeligen gelegt habe? Hinterlegte Mitte, am Ärmel in der Mitte? Leider finde ich die Information nicht in der Anleitung. Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe 😊

DROPS Design 15.07.2016 kl. 14:48:

Liebe Rosi, Sie können die Runde hinten vor dem linken Ärmel beginnen. Meistens wird bei Rundpassenpullis an dieser Stelle begonnen. Alternativ können Sie die hintere Mitte als Rundenanfang wählen.

Liv Helen Nilsen 31.03.2016 - 14:16:

På bilde av genseren stemmer striper på erme og bol overens, men det gjør de ikke når jeg legger de ved siden av hverandre. Har fulgt oppskrift når det gjelder lengder. Strikker str. M. Hva gjør jeg?

DROPS Design 06.04.2016 kl. 10:00:

Hej Liv, Stykkerne er ikke lige lange i alle størrelser, så de skal ikke stemme. Men når du kommer op til bærestykket fortsætter du ifølge samme diagram, så da stemmer mønsteret. God fornøjelse!

KRISTIN BORE 28.03.2016 - 00:18:

Hei! Lurer på hvilket fargenummer det er på bunnfargen "lys beige"? I oppskriften står det nr.71, men hvis du ser på fargenr. 71 i Karisma så er det fargen "sølvrosa". Mvh Kristin

DROPS Design 29.03.2016 kl. 15:47:

Hej Kristin. Det skal vare 71 du skal bruge, vi har aendret farvenavnet siden og ikke faaet rettet til i mönstrene.

Elena Stanciu 07.03.2016 - 11:52:

Ist diese Pulli von Oben ( also von Hals) zum anfangen? Ich check leider nicht ganz!!!! Lg. Elena

DROPS Design 07.03.2016 kl. 13:08:

Liebe Elena, dieser Pulli wird von unten nach oben gestrickt.

Martine 20.12.2015 - 18:59:

Bonjour, j'ai commandé la laine mais je suis très déçue par le coloris de fond (71) qui tire vraiment sur le rose. Puisque j'achète la laine sur le web, pouvez-vous me dire si en prenant le coloris écru le pull sera tout aussi beau ? Merci !

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 11:16:

Bonjour Martine, merci de bien vouloir contacter le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine, il pourra vous aider et vous renseigner en fonction de vos souhaits. Retrouvez ses coordonnées ici. Bon tricot!
