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 = 2 rows K.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

INCREASE TIP:
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.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
The piece is worked top down. Work first front and back piece separately, back and forth down to armhole, 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 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 stocking st, 3 sts in garter st (= towards armhole). Continue like this until 4 rows in stocking 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 = 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 stocking 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 in stocking st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm 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 left shoulder as follows:
Cast on 16-17-17-18-20-20 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with Belle. Work as follows (1st row = from RS): 3 sts in garter st (= towards neck), work 10-11-11-12-14-14 sts in stocking st, 3 sts in garter st (= towards the left).
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, inc for neck (- see explanation below) and when piece measures 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm 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 right shoulder as follows:
Cast on and work as left 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 left 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.
Continue in stocking st inside the 3 sts in garter st in each side. 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 3-5-7-9-11-13 new sts for armhole, work 75-81-87-95-105-115 sts from back piece on to same circular needle and cast on 3-5-7-9-11-13 new sts for armhole = 156-172-188-208-232-256 sts on round. Beg of round is after the last 3-5-7-9-11-13 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 stocking st as before over the next 69-75-81-89-99-109 sts, 9-11-13-15-17-19 sts in garter st, stocking st over the next 69-75-81-89-99-109 sts, 6-8-10-12-14-16 sts in garter st. Continue like this until 2 ridges have been worked over the new sts cast on under armhole. Then work in stocking st until 12-13-14-15-16-17 sts remain before beg of round. This is now beg of round. Now work as follows: Insert a marker, work A.1 (= 10 sts on first round), A.2 (= 11 sts on first round), insert a marker, work in stocking st over the next 57-65-73-83-95-107 sts, insert a marker, A.1, A.2, insert a marker, work in stocking st over the remaining 57-65-73-83-95-107 sts. NOTE: Move markers upwards when working to make it easier to tell the section with lace pattern and stocking st apart. The section in stocking st is constant and inc sts in the section with lace pattern in the sides. Continue pattern like this until entire A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time vertically. There are now 200-216-232-252-276-300 sts on round and piece measures approx. 19 cm in all sizes.
Then repeat A.X vertically AT THE SAME TIME continue inc in diagram as before: I.e. lace pattern in each side inc with 12 sts and there are 2 eyelet rows (1 eyelet row = 1 dec + 1 YO) more in A.1 and A.2 in each side every time A.X is worked 1 time vertically. When piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm, there are approx. 320-336-352-376-404-432 sts on round. Work 1 round in stocking st. Then work 2 ridges. Cast off.

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

Buongiorno. Per favore, avrei bisogno di una conferma. Le misure riportate sotto al disegno del modello si intendono riferite solo ad un pannello (e sono quindi da raddoppiare) ? Grazie e saluti. Lò

DROPS Design 14.06.2019 kl. 20:46:

Buongiorno Lorena. Sì le misure sono riferite ad un solo pannello. Buon lavoro!

Monica 18.02.2019 - 18:31:

Buonasera, ho lavorato A1eA2 una volta ma il mio lavoro misura 12 cm e non 19, come posso fare per aggiustare il lavoro?e poi una volta lavorato Ax come si può proseguire fino alla lunghezza finale? Grazie.

Monica 17.02.2019 - 09:06:

Buongiorno, sto cercando di realizzare il modello e mi trovo sul davanti, non ho capito quando fare gli aumenti per gli scalfi, è corretto farli dopo l avvio delle 27 m per il collo e quindi l unione delle due parti? Grazie, saluti.

DROPS Design 17.02.2019 kl. 09:33:

Buongiorno Monica, per il davanti deve lavorare gli aumenti per lo scalfo quando il lavoro misura 13-12-12-10-10-7 cm a seconda della taglia che sta lavorando, tranne per la taglia XXXL, per cui gli aumenti iniziano prima degli aumenti per il collo. Per gli aumenti seguire le istruzioni del dietro. Buon lavoro!

Gry 12.06.2018 - 15:21:

Det lader til at der er lavet tastefejl i det færdige mål på diagrammet, hvor str. XXXL er 40 cm fra armhule til bunden, og i XXL er der 68 cm. I opskriften skal man strikke 4 pinde ret, efter arbejdet måler 48 cm, og 4 pinde fylder ikke 20 cm.

Franca 08.06.2018 - 15:52:

Buongiorno,nella versione italiana del modello c'é un errore nella spalla della destra del dietro? Devo fare un solo aumento o 3?

DROPS Design 08.06.2018 kl. 16:48:

Buongiorno Franca. Deve aumentare 1 sola maglia. Abbiamo corretto il numero delle maglie dopo l'aumento. Buon lavoro!

Jacqueline Veilleux 04.06.2018 - 16:52:

Merci de votre réponse mais je ne comprends pas (tête dure), Bon après avoir tricoter tous les rangs du schéma de A1 à AX et A2 à AX, je fais quoi, je recommence en bas du schéma ou je ne refais que les rangs de AX jusqu'à longueur désirée? Désolée de vous harcelée. Jacqueline

DROPS Design 05.06.2018 kl. 08:50:

Bonjour Mme Veilleux, après avoir tricoté A.1 et A.2 jusqu'à A.X vous reprenez A.1 et A.2 en commençant par le 1er rang de A.X et vous répétez les rangs de A.X jusqu'à la hauteur indiquée. Vous allez tricoter A.X en largeur sur plus de mailles qu'auparavant car vous avez augmenté le nbe de mailles du point fantaisie mais vous commencez et terminez A.X dans A.1 et A.2 comme avant (et vous répétez 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté, 1 m end) comme au milieu des rangs. Bon tricot!

Jacqueline Veilleux 01.06.2018 - 23:21:

Bonjour, j\'adore votre site. Je tricote le modèle 168-33. J\'ai fait A1, A2 et AX 1 fois un après l\'autre d\'après le schéma mais après AX, qu\'est-ce que je fait? Quand vous dites répéter AX en même temps je ne comprends pas. Et quand vous dites verticalement et horizontalement vous me perdez. merci

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 08:50:

Bonjour Mme Veilleux, quand vous continuez A.x tricotez A.1 comme avant (mais sur davantage de mailles) et terminez A.1X comme dans le diagramme (= par 1 jeté au 1er rang de A.X), puis tricotez A.2X comme avant en commençant comme dans le diagramme (= par 1 m end, 1 jeté au 1er rang) et répétez A.X comme avant mais sur davantage de mailles. Vous allez ainsi continuer à augmenter au milieu des diagrammes comme avant, mais le point fantaisie va commencer et se terminer au même endroit, on augmente simplement le nombre de mailles tricotées au point ajouré. Bon tricot!

Debbie Pettipas 16.07.2017 - 17:17:

I have worked the lace pattern up to row 27, then the pattern is not working out for me. I have the correct amount of stitches, but when I get to the end of a.1 there is an extra stitch.... help!

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 09:25:

Dear Mrs Petipas, this extra st at the end of row 27 will be worked as the first st in A.2 (slip 1 as if to K (= last st in A.2), then K2 tog (the first 2 sts in A.2), and psso, the remining st = first st in A.2. Happy knitting!

Rosario Caballero 29.06.2017 - 15:10:

Hola, no entiendo como hay que aumentar los 12 puntos a la vez q.ue se teje AX en vertical para hacer la ultima parte del cuerpo del top. instrucciones muy mal escritas

DROPS Design 01.07.2017 kl. 18:49:

Hola Rosario. Los aumentos (en este caso los 12 puntos) están incluidos en el diagrama A.x. No hay que hacer aumentos adicionales.

Martina 18.06.2017 - 23:15:

Salve, sto lavorando il corpo del modello nella taglia M. Completata 1 ripetizione di A1 e A2 ho 10 m in più, ossia da 21 (11+10) m, 31 m. Le sommo alle 65 m rasate=96 m, per un totale di 192 m, non 216 m come da istruzioni. Partendo da (65 m + 21m )x2= 172 m, come aumento 44 m per arrivare alle 216 m. segnate?

DROPS Design 19.06.2017 kl. 07:06:

Buongiorno Martina. Deve lavorare tutte le righe dei diagrammi A1 e A2, comprese le righe indicate con Ax. In questo modo. Quindi alla fine di tutte le righe, avrà 21 maglie per A1, 22 per A2. In questo modo il numero complessivo delle maglie per la taglia M sarà di 216. Buon lavoro!
