GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 1 stitch before marker, make 1 yarn-over, knit 2, 1 yarn-over. On next round knit yarn-over twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Work front and back piece back and forth on circular needle.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 76-86-86-90-102-114 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands). Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and work next row from right side as follows: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, * work A.1 (= 12-14-14-12-14-16 stitches), A.2 (= 2 stitches) *, repeat from *-* 4-4-4-5-5-5 times in total, work A.1 (= 12-14-14-12-14-16 stitches) and finish with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm / 16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾''-18''-18½'', insert 1 marker in each side (marks armholes). Continue to work until piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''. Now bind off the middle 20-22-22-22-24-24 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue with lace pattern and 4 edge stitches in garter stitch towards armhole and bind off 1 stitch on next row from the neck = 27-31-31-33-38-44 stitches remain on row for shoulder. Continue until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' and bind off - make sure to avoid a tight bind-off edge. Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on the same number of stitches as on back piece and work as back piece until piece measures 54-56-57-59-60-64 cm / 21 1/4"-22"-22½"-23 1/4"-23½"-25 1/4". Now slip the middle 14-16-16-16-18-18 stitches on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue with lace pattern and 4 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the armhole and bind off for neck at beginning of every row from the neck as follows: 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 27-31-31-33-38-44 stitches remain for shoulder. Continue until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' and bind off - make sure to avoid a tight bind-off edge. Work the other shoulder the same way.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 28-30-30-32-34-34 stitches on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands). Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Switch to double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and insert 1 marker at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Work in stockinette stitch. When piece measures 8-8-10-10-11-13 cm / 3"-3"-4"-4"-4½"-5", increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3½-3-2½-2½-2-1½ cm / 1 1/4"-1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4"-½" 11-12-13-13-14-15 times in total = 50-54-56-58-62-64 stitches. When piece measures 46-44-44-44-41-38 cm / 18"-17 1/4"-17 1/4"-17 1/4"-16"-15", loosely bind off all stitches. Make another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew side seams from markers at the armholes and down - sew in outer loops of edge stitches to avoid a chunky seam, but leave approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' at the bottom of each side for vents. Sew in sleeves.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from right side approx. 60 to 74 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holder at the front) on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with 1 strand of each color. Work 3 ridges but begin by purling 1 round and loosely bind off by knitting on last round.

I'm having trouble with the twisted yarn over increase for the sleeve. I keep getting holes. Has anyone done it with an easier increase like the knit 1 front and back? Wondering if that would work as well. Thank you Nella

DROPS Design 17.03.2018 kl. 12:32:

Dear Nella, you might try to substitute the increase with the kfb, but there will be a tiny bump (like the purl stitch) in its place. that might disrupt the pattern. I would suggest that instead of the kfb, try to pull the yarn thighter, when you do the yarnover, or do the increase by raising the yarn between two stitches of the previous row, and knit that twisted. Happy Knitting!

Ich möchte diesen Pullover mit Baby Alpaca (A+A=C) und Lace (A+A=C) stricken. Gemäss Anleitung ist Ihr Modell mit 2 Fäden Brushed Alpaca Silk (C+C=E) getrickt. Muss ich nun tatsächlich mit 4 Fäden stricken, um den gleich Look zu erzielen? Mich dünkt, dass 1 Faden vom Baby Alpaca (A) dicker ist als ein Faden vom Brushed Alpaca Silk (C).

DROPS Design 02.03.2018 kl. 16:28:

Liebe Christine, dieser Pullover wird mit 2 Fäden Garngruppe C gestrickt, hier können Sie durch 3 Fäden Garngruppe A ersetzen. Aber gerne können Sie auch mal verschiedenen Maschenprobe zuerst stricken, bis Sie die gewünschte Textur bekommen. Ihr DROPS Laden wird Ihnen auch mal gerne helfen, auch per mail oder telefon. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ludovica Genua 12.01.2018 - 14:29:

Buonasera Non mi è chiara una cosa Nella spiegazione del davanti c'è scritto di mettere in sospeso le 14 maglie dello scollo poi quando andranno chiuse? Grazie Ludovica Genua

DROPS Design 12.01.2018 kl. 14:38:

Buongiorno Ludovica. Queste maglie verranno riprese in un secondo momento per il collo, come spiegato nel paragrafo COLLO alla fine delle spiegazioni. Verrano intrecciate dopo aver lavorato le 3 coste a legaccio per il collo. Buon lavoro!

Siorat 23.11.2017 - 10:53:

Bonjour, J'ai fait ce modèle avec la brushed alpaca silk couleur bleu jeans 13 : c'est une merveille. J'ai opté pour une taille d'aiguilles supérieure : 6 et 7 au lieu de 4,5 et 5,5 et le résultat est somptueux : un magnifique pull over doux et souple à souhait. Merci pour vos laines et les explications des modèles qui sont vraiment très complètes et détaillées. Merci aussi à la boutique kalidou ! nous avons beaucoup de chance d'avoir une personne comme ça.

Leonore 07.10.2017 - 16:53:

Dankjewel voor de snelle reactie! Moet ik dit model dan breien in een enkele draad, of ook dubbel?

DROPS Design 07.10.2017 kl. 17:13:

Hallo Leonore, Ja, inderdaad ook met 2 draden. Wel even een proeflapje maken voor de steken verhouding.

Leonore 07.10.2017 - 16:42:

Kan ik deze trui ook in drops air breien, zonder het patroon aan te passen, en hoeveel heb ik dan nodig?

DROPS Design 07.10.2017 kl. 16:50:

Hallo Leonore, Dit patroon is gebreid van 2 draden Brushed Alpaca Silk, dit garen valt in categorie C net als Air, dus je zou deze als vervanging kunnen gebruiken. Om te berekenen hoeveel garen je nodig hebt, is de looplengte een goede indicatie; je hebt evenveel lengte nodig, zeg maar. De looplengte staat bij het garen op de site.

LESEIGNEUR 09.02.2017 - 07:18:

Bonjour il me semble qu'il y avait un schéma global avec les mesures pour ce modèle avec les dimensions, je m'y suis reportée pour commander ma laine mais je ne le trouve plus. Merci pour votre aide

DROPS Design 09.02.2017 kl. 08:58:

Bonjour Mme Leseigneur, vous trouverez le schéma des mesures pour chaque taille (prises à plat, d'un côté à l'autre), tout en bas des explications, sous les diagrammes. Bon tricot!
