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

GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all rounds/rows in pattern seen from RS.

INCREASE TIP 1:
All inc are done from RS.
Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next row P YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of YO instead of front) to avoid holes. NOTE: Work the new sts in stockinette st.

INCREASE TIP 2:
Work until 1 st remains before marker in the side, 1 YO, 2 sts in stockinette st, 1 YO. Repeat in the other side. On next round K the YOs. They should make holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
The piece is worked top down. Work first front and back piece separately, back and forth down to armholes, then work in the round.

BACK PIECE:
Work right shoulder as follows:
Cast on 16-17-17-18-20-20 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Belle. Work as follows (1st row = from RS): 3 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above (= towards the neck), work 10-11-11-12-14-14 sts in stockinette st, 3 sts in garter st (= towards armhole). Continue like this until 4 rows in stockinette st have been work inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side. On next row inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck - READ INCREASE TIP 1 = 17-18-18-19-21-21 sts. Work 1 row from WS and put piece aside.
Work left shoulder as follows:
Cast on and work as right shoulder but reversed. I.e. inc 1 st before the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck on 5th row in stockinette st. Work 1 row from WS. Turn and work as before over all sts. At the end of row cast on 35-35-37-37-39-39 new sts for neck and then work the 17-18-18-19-21-21 sts from right shoulder on to needle = 69-71-73-75-81-81 sts. Work the new sts cast on for neck in garter st. When 2 ridges have been worked over these sts, continue with 2 rows in stockinette st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Now work pattern as follows on next row from RS (NOTE: Beg on 13th row in A.1- A.3, see star in diagram): Work 3 sts in garter st, 2-3-4-5-0-0 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 5 sts), A.2 (= 16 sts) 3-3-3-3-4-4 times in width, A.3 (= 6 sts), 2-3-4-5-0-0 sts in stockinette st, 3 sts in garter st. Repeat A.1-A.3 vertically until finished measurements. When piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4"-4"-2 3/4'' from cast-on edge, inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side for armhole. Repeat inc on every row from RS 2-4-6-9-11-16 more times = 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts. Work 1 row from WS after last inc and put piece aside.

FRONT PIECE:
Work right shoulder as follows:
Cast on 16-17-17-18-20-20 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Belle. Work as follows (1st row = from RS): 3 sts in garter st (= towards armhole), work 10-11-11-12-14-14 sts in stockinette st, 3 sts in garter st (= towards the neck).
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue like this, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 7-8-7-8-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3"-2 3/4"-3"-3"-3½"'', inc for neck and when piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4"-4"-2 3/4'' inc for armholes the same way as on back piece. NOTE: In size XXXL beg inc for armholes before inc for neck.
INCREASE NECK:
Inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck. Repeat inc on every row from RS 4-4-5-5-6-6 more times = 5-5-6-6-7-7 sts inc for neck. When all inc are done, work 1 row from WS. Put piece aside.

Work left shoulder as follows:
Cast on and work as right shoulder but reversed. I.e. inc 1 st before the 3 sts in garter st towards the neck.
When all inc for neck are done, work 1 row from WS. Turn and work as before over all sts. At the end of row cast on 27 new sts in all sizes for neck, then work all sts from right shoulder on to needle. Continue back and forth like this (continue inc for armholes) until 2 ridges have been worked over the new sts for neck. On next row from RS work pattern A.4 (= 27 sts) over the middle 27 sts on needle. NOTE: Work A.4 1 time vertically but the repetition will not be finished vertically before front and back pieces are put tog and you are working in the round on body.
When all inc for armholes are done, there are 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts on needle. After last inc work 1 row from WS. Turn and work over all sts on front piece, cast on 4-6-8-10-12-14 new sts for armhole, insert a marker in the middle of these new sts (= 2-3-4-5-6-7 sts on each side of marker), work 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts from back piece on to same circular needle and cast on 4-6-8-10-12-14 new sts for armhole, insert a marker in the middle of these new sts (= 2-3-4-5-6-7 sts on each side of marker) = 158-174-190-210-234-258 sts on round. Beg of round is after the last 4-6-8-10-12-14 new sts cast on.

BODY:
Then work in the round on circular needle. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now continue with pattern as follows: Work 3 sts in garter st, continue in stockinette st with pattern as before over the next 69-75-81-89-99-109 sts - NOTE: Continue pattern A.4 until entire repetition has been worked 1 time vertically, then work in stockinette st over all sts on front piece, 10-12-14-16-18-20 sts in garter st, stockinette st over the next 5-8-11-15-12-17 sts, continue pattern A.1-A.3 as before over the next 59-59-59-59-75-75 sts, 5-8-11-15-12-17 sts in stockinette st, 7-9-11-13-15-17 sts in garter st. When 2 ridges have been worked over the new sts for armholes, continue these sts in stockinette st until finished measurements. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', inc 2 st in each side of piece - READ INCREASE TIP 2! Repeat inc every 4th round until finished measurements. When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17 1/4''-17 3/4''-18''-18½''-19''-19 1/4'' – adjust to finish after 10th or 20th round in A.1-A.3 - work 1 round in stockinette st. There are now approx. 262-278-298-318-346-374 sts on round depending on where the pattern is finished. Then work 2 ridges. Bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams tog. Make sure that to avoid a tight seam.

Bonjour, Je suis en train de tricoter le devant, j'ai tricote les deux epaules, droite en premier, puis gauche, conformement aux instructions, mais il me semble que le patron devrait etre inverse par rapport au dos; c'est a dire tricoter l'epaule GAUCHE en premier, laisser un fil en attente cote encolure, tricoter l'epaule DROITE et faire les 27 augmentations de l'encolure a partir de l'epaule droite et continuer a tricoter vers l'epaule gauche. Merci de preciser.

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 10:48:

Bonjour Isabelle, votre commentaire a été transmis à nos stylistes qui vont l'étudier, merci pour votre retour. Si une correction doit être faite, vous la retrouverez en ligne. Bon tricot!

Isabelle 17.07.2019 - 08:40:

Bonjour, Dans les explications du dos: "À 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm depuis le rang de montage, augmenter pour les emmanchures ...", s'agit-il du rang de montage initial (le haut des epaules) ou bien le rang des augmentations de l'encolure? Les jetes des augmentations doivent-ils etre tricotes en mailles torses sur l'envers? Merci!

DROPS Design 17.07.2019 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Isabelle, on mesure depuis les mailles de l'épaule pour que l'emmanchure soit juste en hauteur. Tout à fait, les augmentations doivent se tricoter torse - cf AUGMENTATIONS-1. Bon tricot!

Lise Tamara Sand 13.06.2019 - 00:03:

Jeg strikker str xxl og med 81 m før økning til ermehull så blir 11 økninger *2 , 11 for hver ermhull, så blir 81+22= 103m ikke 105

DROPS Design 13.06.2019 kl. 09:24:

Hei Lise. Du øker 11 ganger TIL - altså i tillegg til den første gangen som blir forklart. Dvs det økes totalt 12 ganger = 105 masker etter økningene til ermhull. God fornøyelse

Valerie 19.08.2018 - 02:47:

I am at the increase neck section. I have increased the appropriate number of stitches and am increasing for the armhole as well. Do I stop when the stitches for the neck are finished or continue until all the stitches for the armhole are finished?

DROPS Design 21.08.2018 kl. 07:54:

Hi Valerie, You work each shoulder separately, so increase for neck on the right shoulder and then work the left shoulder. Once you have worked both shoulders you cast on stitches for the neck and work the shoulders together. I hope this helps and happy knitting!

Susanna 03.07.2018 - 20:38:

These patterns are great, but I really wish they would be edited better. I couldn't tell which "cast on edge" to measure from when beginning the back armhole increases. I chose the neck cast on, and only after happening to read a comment here did I learn it was supposed to be the shoulders. Also, there is a mistake in the pattern for the front shoulders--the left shoulder should be knitted first, then the right, neck cast on to right shoulder, then left shoulder joined.

Natalie Hall 22.05.2018 - 11:41:

All the keys in every knitting chart are blank on all my devices so I don’t know if I am supposed to k2tog or sl k1 psso. Is there a key chart which is in a different format?

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 12:47:

Dear Mrs Hall, the dec are symbols 2 , 3 and 5, ie either diagonal line over 2 sts/squares (2nd and 3rd symbol) or black triangle over 3 sts (5th symbol). Happy knitting!

Margrethe Fauske 11.05.2018 - 11:58:

Hei!\r\nJeg har kommet til der jeg legger opp 27 masker til hals. Jeg strikker str. S.\r\nJeg har strikket høyre skulder: legg opp 16 masker, øk 5 masker til hals, øk 3 masker til ermehull = 24 masker. Jeg har gjort det samme med venstre skulder = 48 masker. Pluss de 27 maskene til hals har jeg da 75 masker. Men oppskriften sier at jeg skal fortsette å øke til ermehull til jeg har 75 masker, men det har jeg allerede? Hva har jeg gjort feil?

KATE ROBINSON 17.04.2018 - 22:23:

Hi, When the pattern says "When piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4"-4"-2 3/4'' from cast-on edge, inc 1 st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side for armhole." what is meant by "inside the 3 sts in garter st"? Where are those stitches to made exactly? Between the last stockinette stitch and the first garter stitch? And how many stitches are we increasing by? Is that one stitch for each garter st border, ie 4 stitches? Thank you!

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 09:37:

Dear Mrs Robinson, you increase from RS after the first 3 sts in garter st and before the last 3 sts in garter st. These new sts will be worked in stockinette stitch= you will increase 2 sts on each inc row = every RS row. Happy knitting!

Yvonne 20.01.2018 - 12:44:

Der Abschlussrand rollt sich trotz den 2 Reihen kraus rechts immer hoch. Hat jemand ein Tipp???

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 09:08:

Liebe Yvonne, Sie können das Top mit Stecknadeln auf einer geeigneten Unterlage spannen, anfeuchten (z.B. mit einer Sprühflasche für Blumen) und trocknen lassen, danach entfernen Sie die Stecknadeln, dann sollte sich der Rand nicht mehr rollen. Viel Spaß beim fertigstellen!

Roxanne Sandiford 03.06.2017 - 00:32:

I have counted down from the top of the pattern and where the star sits is the 12th row I am confused. Also is the pattern ie knit together etc done on the right or wrong side? thank you

DROPS Design 03.06.2017 kl. 08:59:

Dear Roxanne, you have to count from the bottom, not from the top. How to read the diagrams that come with the patterns you will find HERE. Happy knitting!
