Work first row as follows from RS: 2 edge sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, work pattern according to diagram A.1 until 3 sts remain on row, work 1st st in A.1 and finish with 2 edge sts in garter st - NOTE: On 7th row in A.1 K last st before edge sts.
When A.1 has been worked, work next row as follows from RS: 2 edge sts in garter st, work pattern according to diagram A.2A over the next 18-21-27-33-36-42 sts (= 6-7-9-11-12-14 repetitions of 3 sts), work A.3 (=11 sts), insert 1 marker (= marker A), work pattern according to diagram A.4 over the next 48 sts (= 6 repetitions of 8 sts), work 1st st in A.4, insert 1 marker (= marker B – there are now 49 sts between markers), work A.3 (= 11 sts), work pattern according to diagram A.2B over the next 18-21-27-33-36-42 sts and finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this. NOTE: Continue A.2 and A.3 upwards outside of marker A and B up to armhole. Between marker A and B work a lace edge, no of sts between markers will vary upwards.

When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, work pattern according to diagram A.5 as follows (continue sts before marker A and after marker B as before): Work A.5A (= 12 sts), repeat A.5B over the next 24 sts (= 2 repetitions of 12 sts) and finish with A.5C (= 13 sts).
When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, work pattern according to A.4 again the same way as last time. Then work A.1 while AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS dec 4 sts evenly in size S + M + L + XL and inc 2 sts evenly in size XXL + XXXL (between marker A and B) = 45-45-45-45-51-51 sts between markers. On next row from RS work A.6 as follows: Work A.6A (= 4 sts), repeat A.6B over the next 36-36-36-36-42-42 sts (= 6-6-6-6-7-7 repetitions of 6 sts) and finish with A.6C (= 5 sts). After A.6 work A.1 again and AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS dec 4-4-4-4-2-2 sts evenly = 41-41-41-41-49-49 sts between markers. After A.1 work A.4 again AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS inc 2 sts in size XXL + XXXL = 41-41-41-41-51-51 sts between markers. Then work A.7 as follows: Work A.7A (= 5 sts), repeat A.7B over the next 30-30-30-30-40-40 sts (= 3-3-3-3-4-4 repetitions of 10 sts) and finish with A.7C (= 6 sts). On last row from RS in A.7 dec 2 sts evenly in size XXL + XXXL = 41-41-41-41-49-49 sts. After A.7 repeat A.4 and A.1 alternately up to neck dec.

DECREASE IN THE SIDES:
When piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', dec 1 st in each side - READ DECREASE TIP-1! Repeat dec every 6-6-6-4-4-4 cm / 2½"-2½"-2½"-1½"-1½"-1½" a total of 6-6-6-9-9-9 times - NOTE: Work sts that do not fit the pattern out towards the side in stockinette st when dec. After dec in the sides, 12-15-21-24-27-33 sts remain in A.2 in each side.

ARMHOLE:
When piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm / 15¼''-15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼'', work 2 ridges over the outermost 14-17-23-26-29-35 sts in each side (i.e. over all sts on outside of A.3 in each side - work the other sts as before). Then bind off the outermost 4-6-6-8-10-14 sts at beg of the next 2 rows for armholes. Continue pattern between marker A and B as explained above, continue A.3 on outside of marker A and B as before and work in garter st over the outermost 10-11-17-18-19-21 sts in each side. AT THE SAME TIME bind off for armholes in each side every other row (i.e. every row from RS) as follows - READ DECREASE TIP-2: Dec 1 st 7-8-12-13-16-18 times in total.

Continue A.3 as before with 5-5-5-5-7-7 edge sts in garter st towards the neck and 3-3-5-5-3-3 edge st in garter st towards the armhole. Continue until piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' and bind off. Repeat on the other shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:

SLEEVE:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 66-70-76-82-86-94 sts on needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 2 ridges. Continue in stockinette st with 2 edge sts in garter st in each side. When piece measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''-1½'', insert 1 marker in each side - marks where to sew in sleeve in body. Then work in stockinette st over all sts. When piece measures 2-3-3-4-5-7 cm / 3/4"-1"-1"-1½"-2"-2 3/4" from marker, dec 1 st in each side by working the first 2 and the last 2 sts tog. Repeat dec every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) 5-4-0-0-0-0 times in total, every other row (i.e. every row from RS) 2-4-10-7-3-0 times in total and every row (both from RS and WS) 0-0-5-11-19-26 times in total = 52-54-46-46-42-42 sts remain on needle. Bind off.
Make another sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew underarm seams - sew edge to edge with 1 stitch in every st to get a flat seam. Sew side seams the same way. Place sleeve under sleeve edge and fasten neatly with small stitches so that edge in garter st is visible – markers mid under sleeve should match side seams on body.

Can I work it in the round?

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 08:34:

Dear Margaret, you can work the bottom of body in the round if you like to, but remember when a design has been written to be worked back and forth, there may be some reasons and it can be easier to follow the explanations as they are. Happy knitting!

I Butler 21.05.2018 - 21:18:

It is a lovely pattern and not boring to knit., I will knit it (in cotton) for my daughter and use part of the designs for a baby summer top. Thanks

Doris 22.07.2017 - 09:11:

Ich habe den Pullover gestrickt. Ist superschön geworden. Toller Schnitt. Bin begeistert. Danke für ihre schönen Anleitungen!

ANTOINE 10.07.2017 - 10:15:

Merci pour vos explications.

HELENE ANTOINE 29.06.2017 - 11:38:

Bonjour, Au niveau de A5, sur le croquis, n'y a t il pas une inversions entre A5C et A5A. En effet, au 11ème rang, je n'arrive pas à suivre le croquis. Merci à vous.

DROPS Design 29.06.2017 kl. 14:49:

Bonjour Mme Antoine, au 11ème ( et au 17ème rang), tricotez la dernière m de A.5A avec les 2 premières m de A.5B, le jeté = dernière m de A.51A, le surjet double + le jeté = 2 premières m de A.5B), à la fin de chaque A.5B, tricotez la dernière m de A.5B avec les 2 premières m du A.5B suivant (puis de A.5C), le jeté = dernière m de A.5B et le surjet double + le jeté = 2 premières m du A.5B suivant/de A.5C. Bon tricot!

Giovanna 13.02.2017 - 11:27:

Buongiorno, ho un problema con lo schema A2A. Nella 3 riga comincia con 2 dritti e finisce con 2 dritti. La domanda è: ci sono 2 dritti o 4 consecutivi? Grazie

DROPS Design 13.02.2017 kl. 11:57:

Buongiorno Giovanna Il diagramma A.2a è di fatto su 3 maglie. Alla riga 3 , ripete la successione: passare 1 m a dir senza lavorarla, 1 m dir, accavallare la m passata sulla maglia lavorata finché ci sono sufficienti maglie; lavora a diritto le prime 2 e le ultime 2 maglie delle 18-21-27-33-36-42 m da lavorare seguendo il diagramma A.2a. Buon lavoro!

Uli 26.07.2016 - 18:35:

Ich habe heute meinen Pulli Erica zum ersten mal getragen. Er wurde allseits bewundert. Dank der kurzen Reihen trotz Kleidergrösse 44 klappte das Stricken ohne schmerzende Gelenke und gereizte Sehnen. Den Ausschnitt im Rückenteil habe ich um ein selbst aausgedachtes Muster erhöht. Sitzt prima.

Dörte 29.04.2016 - 16:35:

Wie kommt die unterschiedliche Länge / verschiedene Anzahl Reihen zustande entsprechend er gewünschten Größe?

DROPS Design 02.05.2016 kl. 09:00:

Liebe Dörte, siehe letzter Satz unter Rückenteil: "Nach A.7 abwechselnd A.4 und A.1 bis zum Halsausschnitt str." Sie stricken also wie angegeben bis zur entsprechenden Länge Ihrer Größe.

Uli 19.04.2016 - 04:26:

Wie schön. Ein Modell mit Nähten. Das ist Gold für meine Handgelenke. Vielen Dank und bitte mehr davon.

Rian 14.01.2016 - 19:22:

Volgens mij is dit hetzelfde patroon als patroon W-587 van deze zomerselectie. Het lijkt er in ieder geval heel veel op, alleen in een ander garen. Jammer, om zo 2 bijna dezelfde patroon te plaatsen. Verder wel leuk.
