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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. NOTE: Note that on some rounds in A.1 there is pattern on EVERY round.

DECREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 184 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 22) = 8.4. I.e. in this example K approx. every 7th and 8th st tog.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Dec as follows before first and third marker: Beg 2 sts before marker and K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after second and fourth marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
Inc as follows before first and third and after second and fourth marker:
Make 1 YO. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
Because of pattern in A.1 work piece in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 184-202-218-240-264-294 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Cotton Light. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while dec 22-20-28-26-34-40 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 162-182-190-214-230-254 sts. Work next round as follows: Work 8-13-7-13-9-7 sts in stockinette st, insert 1 marker (= first marker), * work pattern according to diagram A.1A (= 8 sts), repeat A.1B over the next 48-48-64-64-80-96 sts (= 3-3-4-4-5-6 repetition of 16 sts), work A.1C (= 9 sts) *, insert 1 marker (= second marker), work 16-26-14-26-18-14 sts in stockinette st, insert 1 marker (= third marker), repeat from *-* one more time, insert 1 marker (= fourth marker) and finish with 8-13-7-13-9-7 sts in stockinette st. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', dec before first and third and after second and fourth marker – READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 3 cm / 1'' a total of 6 times = 138-158-166-190-206-230 sts. When piece measures 26 cm / 10 1/4'', inc before first and third and after second and fourth marker – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 3-4-4-4-4-5 cm / 1"-1½"-1½"-1½''-1½''-2'' a total of 4 times = 154-174-182-206-222-246 sts.
When piece measures 40-42-42-44-44-46 cm / 15 3/4"-16½"-16½"-17 1/4"-17 1/4"-18", work next round as follows: bind off 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts for armhole, K 71-81-83-95-101-113 (= back piece), bind off 6-6-8-8-10-10 sts for armhole, K 71-81-83-95-101-113 (= front piece) and bind off the last 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts for armhole. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Because of pattern in A.1 work piece in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 58-58-58-60-62-64 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Cotton Light. Work 3 ridges. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while dec 7 sts evenly = 51-51-51-53-55-57 sts. Work next round as follows: 1-1-1-2-3-4 sts in stockinette st, work pattern according to diagram A.1A (= 8 sts), repeat A.1B over the next 32 sts (= 2 repetitions of 16 sts), work A.1C (= 9 sts) and finish with 1-1-1-2-3-4 sts in stockinette st. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', inc 1 st on each side of the middle 2 sts mid under sleeve (inc by making 1 YO, on next round K YO twisted to avoid holes). Repeat inc every 5-4-3½-3-2½-2 cm / 2"-1½"-1 1/4"-7/8"-3/4" 5-6-7-8-9-10 times in total = 61-63-65-69-73-77 sts. When piece measures 32-32-31-31-29-29 cm / 12½"-12½"-12 1/4"-12 1/4"-11½"-11½" (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke) work next round as follows: bind off 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts, K 55-57-57-61-63-67 and bind off the last 3-3-4-4-5-5 sts. Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off (without working them first) = 252-276-280-312-328-360 sts. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for correct size = 17-18-19-21-22-24 repetitions of 14 sts), AT THE SAME TIME dec 14-24-14-18-20-24 sts evenly on first round – READ DECREASE TIP-1 = 238-252-266-294-308-336 sts on needle. When diagram A.2 has been worked, there are 119-126-133-147-154-168 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'', cut the yarn.

NECK EDGE WITH ELEVATION:
Beg from RS mid back and work in garter st back and forth on circular needle size 3.5 as follows: K 7-7-8-9-9-10 sts, turn, tighten yarn and K 14-14-16-18-18-20 sts back. Turn, tighten yarn and K 21-21-24-27-27-30 sts, turn, tighten yarn and K 28-28-32-36-36-40 sts back. Continue back and forth like this and work 7-7-8-9-9-10 sts more on every turn until 56-56-64-72-72-80 sts in total have been worked (= 8 rows in total), turn piece, tighten yarn and K until mid back. K 1 round over all sts while dec 23-24-27-31-34-36 sts evenly = 96-102-106-116-120-132 sts on needle. P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. Then loosely bind off with K.

Thanks but how many stitches in do I strt it?

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 08:16:

Dear Heather, you should start the elevation mid on back piece. Happy knitting!

Heather 24.07.2018 - 00:13:

Hi there. I don’t understand the elevation part. Where do you start? Also is it necessary that this step is done?

DROPS Design 24.07.2018 kl. 09:44:

Dear Heather, working the elevation on back piece will allow the neckline on back piece being somewhat higher than the neckline on front piece. Starting on mid back work in garter stitch back and forth with short rows, working some more sts on each row for a total of 8 rows. See also video below (worked top down in the video but the technique is the same, just remember to work here in garter stitch). You can leave it out, and neckline will be the same on front and back piece. Happy knitting!

ANNE DE LOOF 02.07.2018 - 10:43:

Buongiorno, vorrei realizzare questo progetto per una bambina di circa 11 anni, c'è un modo per adattare la taglia? grazie mille e buon lavoro

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 16:27:

Buongiorno Anne, può provare a vedere se le misure della taglia più piccola possono corrispondere a quelle che le servono, altrimenti per un aiuto più personalizzato si può rivolgere al suo rivenditore DROPS di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Guiberteau 14.03.2018 - 13:49:

A 6 cm il faut diminuer une maille avant le 1er marqueur et le 3eme puis le 2eme et 4eme pouvez vous m'aider

DROPS Design 14.03.2018 kl. 16:01:

Bonjour Mme Guiberteau, à 6 cm, vous diminuez avant le 1er et le 3ème marqueur en tricotant 2 m ens à l'end juste avant le marqueur et après le 2ème et le 4ème marqueur en tricotant après le marqueur: glissez 1 m à l'end, 1 m end, passez la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée = 4 m diminuées. Bon tricot!

Huguette 13.12.2017 - 22:09:

Je crois m'être mal exprimée dans ma question précédente. Je précise: la partie inférieure tricotée en côtes se redresse et forme un angle de 90 degrés par rapport au tricot (il ne "roule" pas comme le ferait un tricot en jersey). Même chose avec le modèle 176-4 que j'ai tricoté. Comment résoudre ce problème? Merci !!

DROPS Design 14.12.2017 kl. 08:38:

Bonjour Huguette, votre question avait été bien comprise et vous trouverez la réponse ci-dessous etsous l'autre modèle. Bon tricot!

Huguette 13.12.2017 - 19:38:

J'ai terminé ce modèle récemment ainsi que le modèle 176-4. J'ai un problème avec les deux pulls: le devant inférieur "roule"; il y a comme un faux pli dans le tricot. Les deux pulls sont pour offrir; j'espère que vous m'aiderez à régler ce problème ! Merci !

DROPS Design 14.12.2017 kl. 08:33:

Bonjour Huguette, vous pouvez simplement laver le pull en suivant bien les consignes de l'étiquette + les généralités ici et le faire sécher à plat aux mesures finales - vous pouvez ajouter quelques épingles (inoxydables) si nécessaire. Votre magasin DROPS pourra très certainement vous donner d'autres astuces. Bon tricot!

Christine 18.09.2017 - 08:13:

Hallo, wird die gesamte passe mit der kleinerenNadel 3,5 gestrickt? Gruß Christine

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 09:30:

Liebe Christine, ja, Passe wird mit Nadel 3,5 bis zur Ende gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Monika 24.07.2017 - 16:26:

Dobrý deň, rada by som vedela ak po dokončení sedla odstrihnem niť, kde a kedy sa pletie zvýšený priekrčník. Trošku mi to nedáva zmysel. Tvaruje sa ešte počas pletenia alebo sa znovu nebrajú očká zo sedla. Ďakujem

DROPS Design 24.07.2017 kl. 22:28:

Dobrý den, Moniko, Oka znovu nabírat nemusíte - máte je stále na jehlici, jde o to, posunout začátek kruhové řady doprostřed zadního dílu, aby bylo možné správně vytvarovat průkrčník. Po dokončení sedla máte pravděpodobně pracovní nit (začátek/konec kruhové řady) na straně, v raglánu, proto je potřeba nit odstřihnout a napojit uprostřed zadního dílu (oka na kruhové jehlici jen přesunete podle potřeby). Hodně zdaru! Hana

Benedetta 27.05.2017 - 17:59:

Grazie,gentilissime !

Benedetta 27.05.2017 - 16:40:

Buongiorno, ho finito il lavoro e adesso devo fare l'alzata. Come calcolo il centro dietro, non mi è chiaro da dove cominciare a contate le maglie per cominciare i ferri accorciati.Grazie mille

DROPS Design 27.05.2017 kl. 17:11:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Per l'alzata, ha tagliato il filo, e adesso sposta le maglie sui ferri in modo che il giro inizi dalla maglia centrale del dietro. Potrebbe aiutarla cercare di individuare la maglia centrale nella parte del davanti/dietro, quando ha intrecciato le maglie per gli scalfi. Seguendo la m in verticale dovrebbe riuscire a capire dove iniziare con i ferri accorciati. Buon lavoro!
