Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
To avoid the knitting gauge to tighten when working pattern, 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.

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

See diagrams A.1-A.5.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row K YO twisted, i.e. work in the back loop of st instead of front to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP 2 (applies to inc in round yoke):
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts on round (= 106 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 27 sts) = 3.92. I.e. in this example inc 1 st alternately for every 3rd and 4th st.

Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. READ KNITTING TIP! Rounds start mid back.

Cast on 105-108-114-117-120-129 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with beige brown. Work rib = K 1/P 2 for 3 cm / 1''. Work 1 round in stockinette st. Then work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work 2 rounds in stockinette st while inc 27-28-34-35-36-39 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP 1 and INCREASE TIP 2 = 132-136-148-152-156-168 sts. Work A.1. On 7th round, inc 36-38-38-46-48-48 sts evenly = 168-174-186-198-204-216 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE On 15th round, inc 34-40-44-48-50-54 sts evenly = 202-214-230-246-254-270 sts. Continue pattern. On 19th round, inc 34-38-42-46-58-62 sts evenly = 236-252-272-292-312-332 sts. Work the remaining round in A.1. Now work A.2 (= 22 sts) 12-13-14-15-16-17 times in width, AT THE SAME TIME on first round inc 28-34-36-38-40-42 sts evenly = 264-286-308-330-352-374 sts. NOTE: On 13th round in diagram, inc 1 st (= 12-13-14-15-16-17 inc in total on round) = 276-299-322-345-368-391 sts. When entire diagram A.2 has been worked vertically, repeat the last 2 round in diagram 0-0-0-2-2-2 more times. Now work A.3, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round inc 6-7-8-15-16-23 sts evenly = 282-306-330-360-384-414 sts. When entire A.3 has been worked vertically, work 1 round in stockinette st with beige brown while inc 2-2-2-4-4-6 sts evenly = 284-308-332-364-388-420 sts. Then work 0-2-4-4-6-8 rounds in stockinette st. Now work as follows: Work the first 38-42-46-52-56-64 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 66-70-74-78-82-82 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 12 new sts under sleeve, work the next 76-84-92-104-112-128 sts (= front piece), slip the next 66-70-74-78-82-82 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 12 new sts under sleeve, work the remaining 38-42-46-52-56-64 sts (= half back piece). Piece measures approx. 24-25-25-26-27-28 cm / 9½"-9 3/4"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-10½"-11".

There are now 176-192-208-232-248-280 sts for body. Insert a marker 44-48-52-58-62-70 sts in from beg of round in each side (= sides). Markers follow downwards when working. Then work in light beige brown until finished measurements. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now work pattern A.4 (= 8 sts) over all sts. When A.4 has been worked vertically, continue in stockinette st. On next round dec 1 st on each side of each marker in the sides - SEE DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 8th round 3 more times in all sizes = 160-176-192-216-232-264 sts. When piece measures 19 cm / 7½'', inc 1 st on each side of each marker. Repeat inc every 6th round 3 more times in all sizes = 176-192-208-232-248-280 sts. When piece measures 24-25-26-27-28-30 cm / 9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-10½"-11"-11 3/4", adjust no of sts to = 180-190-210-230-250-280. Now work A.5 (= 10 sts). When entire diagram has been worked vertically, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 1 round in stockinette st while inc 8-8-9-11-13-14 sts evenly = 188-198-219-241-263-294 sts. Work 3 ridges and bind off. Piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' in total.

Work in stockinette st, AT THE SAME TIME insert a marker in the middle of the new sts under sleeve (i.e. 6 new sts on each side of marker). NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE.
When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', dec 1 st on each side of marker. Repeat dec every 5th-4th-4th-3rd-4th-4th round 13-15-17-19-16-16 more times = 50-50-50-50-60-60 sts. When sleeve measures 30-30-30-29-29-30 cm / 11 3/4"-11 3/4"-11 3/4"-11½"-11½"-11 3/4", work A.5 (= 5-5-5-5-6-6 times on round).

The wool requirements state 4 colours, 55, 54, 71 & 01. In the diagram, silver pink is mentioned but not in the requirements??? Can yiu advise please? Kind regards, Jacquie

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 11:48:

Dear Jaquie, there is a typo under colour no 71, it should be silver pink instead of light beige, pattern will be edited, thanks for the tip! Happy knitting!

Strikket denne i str L, og er veldig fornøyd med resultatet. Men jeg fikk ikke den oppgitte garnmengde til å stemme. Brukte 400g av farge 53, og 150g av farge 54.

Jo Janssen V D Rijt 13.11.2016 - 14:40:

Hoe komt t dat ik n patroon niet kan printen heb n hp laserprinter

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 14:32:

Hoi Jo. Ik kan het patroon printen, ik denk dat het probleem dan ligt bij jou printer / instellingen. Hier kan ik helaas niet mee helpen.

Loes 01.11.2016 - 18:21:

Welk blokje in het tel patroon wordt gebruikt voor de kleur beige. Er wordt toch met 4 kleuren gewerkt?

DROPS Design 02.11.2016 kl. 12:22:

Hoi Loes. De kleurnamen waren aangepast, maar vergeten in de vertaling voor de symbolen. Ik heb het nu aangepast. Bedankt.

Stine Bjørnsdatter Nygård 10.08.2015 - 22:06:

Er det riktig at bol og ermer skal strikkes i lys brunmelert? Jeg får det ikke til å stemme med bildet og garnmengden. Jeg tror bol og ermer skal være i beige melert (eller den bunnfargen man måtte velge). Tar jeg helt feil?

DROPS Design 12.08.2015 kl. 08:38:

Hej. Färgerna är riktiga men garnmängden var tidigare fel, detta har nu rättats. Mvh DROPS Design

Nati 25.06.2015 - 16:07:

Toll, könnte mein Favorit werden, bitte bald die Anleitung

Sophie DROMARD 13.06.2015 - 08:09:

J'aime beaucoup les petites vagues en bas mais je n'aime pas les côtes en bas des manches. Je préfère le point mousse comme sur le bas du pull.

Bente Kristensen 08.06.2015 - 21:29:

Flot og harmonisk mønster

Lonni Høitbjerg 02.06.2015 - 14:28:

Meget flot med mønster i flere farver, men også et fint mønster under bærestykket og nederst på kanten og ærmerne.
