BODY:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 184-204-224-244-264-284 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 5 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and K 1 round while dec 4 sts evenly = 180-200-220-240-260-280 sts. Now work in stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 7 cm, insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: K 20-20-25-25-30-30 sts (= half back piece), insert 1st marker, K 50-60-60-70-70-80 sts (= side), insert 2nd marker, K 40-40-50-50-60-60 sts (= mid front), insert 3rd marker, K 50-60-60-70-70-80 sts (= side), insert 4th marker, K 20-20-25-25-30-30 sts (= half back piece). Move the markers upwards when working. On next round, dec 1 st at every marker – Read DECREASE TIP = 4 sts dec on needle. NOTE: No of sts mid front and mid back is the same, dec in side sts.

Repeat dec every 8th-8th-8th-6th-6th-8th round 6-7-7-9-8-6 more times = 152-168-188-200-224-252 sts. Continue in stocking st until piece measures 30 cm. On next round, inc 1 st at every marker – Read INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 sts inc on needle). NOTE: No of sts mid front and mid back is the same, inc in side sts. Repeat inc every 4th-6th-4th-4th-4th-6th round 6-4-6-7-6-5 more times = 180-188-216-232-252-276 sts. Continue in stocking st until piece measures 40-42-42-44-44-46 cm. Then work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 4-8-3-1-1-3 sts evenly = 176-180-213-231-251-273 sts.

Then cast off for armholes on next round from RS as follows: K 38-39-47-52-57-62 sts, cast off the next 12 sts, K 77-79-96-104-114-126 sts, cast off the next 12 sts and K 37-38-46-51-56-61 sts = 152-156-189-207-227-249 sts. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 48-52-52-56-56-60 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work rib = K 2/P 2. When piece measures 4 cm, switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Continue in stocking st and dec 2-4-2-4-4-6 sts evenly on first round = 46-48-50-52-52-54 sts. Insert 1 marker at the beg of the round. When piece measures 14-14-14-12-10-8 cm, inc 1 st on each side of marker - READ INCREASE TIP-2, repeat inc every 2 cm 13-14-14-15-16-17 more times = 74-78-80-84-86-90 sts. When piece measures 45-45-45-44-44-44 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), cast off 12 sts mid under sleeve (i.e. cast off 6 sts on each side of marker) = 62-66-68-72-74-78 sts. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Worked in the round on circular needle.
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off (do not work the sts when slipping them on to the same needle) = 276-288-325-351-375-405 sts. Work diagram A.1(= 12-12-13-13-15-15 sts) 23-24-25-27-25-27 repetitions in width. Continue the pattern like this until 5 rounds remain in diagram = 138-144-150-162-175-189 sts. Continue pattern as before AT THE SAME TIME on last round with K dec 34-36-34-42-51-57 sts evenly = 104-108-116-120-124-132 sts. Switch to a short circular needle size 3 mm and work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Cast off with K over K and P over P.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the opening under the sleeves.

Diagram

= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
= K 2 tog
= moss st pattern in diagram does not fit when repeating in the round like this, but moss so does fit over total number of sts, so keep working k above p and p over k

Posso lavorare le maniche con i ferri circolari anziché con i ferri a doppie punte come suggerito da voi? Grazie

DROPS Design 14.10.2015 kl. 19:38:

Buonasera Antonella, per le maniche vengono indicati i ferri a doppia punta perchè le maglie sono poche per essere lavorate con i ferri circolari. Può provare con i ferri circolari di piccolo diametro, tipo 20-23 cm oppure con altre tecniche, come il magic loop oppure i due ferri circolari. Provi a guardare questi video: Buon lavoro!
