SWEATER:
The sweater is worked in the round with circular needle up to the armholes, then the back and front pieces are worked separately back and forth.

Continue with stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm / 14½''-15''-15¼''-15¾''-16 1/8''-16½'' work only across the first 66-70-76-82-90-98 stitches on the needle, the last 66-70-76-82-90-98 stitches are placed on a thread.

Knit 1 row from the right side across the last 17-19-21-24-27-31 stitches on the needle, turn and purl 1 row from the wrong side, at the end of the row purl the last 2 stitches together.
Place the stitches on a thread. Knit 1 row from the right side across the last 17-19-21-24-27-31 stitches on the needle, turn and purl 1 row from the wrong side, at the end of the row bind off the last stitch towards the neck. Place all the stitches back on the needle and knit 1 row from the right side and knit up 2 stitches in each side (between the stitches for the neck and the stitches on the shoulder) towards the neck = 68-72-78-84-92-100 stitches. Purl 1 row from the wrong side where you increase 6-6-4-6-6-6 stitches evenly along the row = 74-78-82-90-98-106 stitches.Change to circular needle size 6 = US 10 and work as follows – from the right side: knit 2 * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* the complete row.

Bind off when the piece measures 48-47-46-45-43-41 cm / 19"-18½"-18"-17 3/4"-17"-16". NOTE! shorter measurements in the larger sizes due to broader shoulder measurements.

Hoi, hoe lang moet de breinaald zonder knop zijn? 20cm of langer? Hoor dat 20cm niet zo fijn is.

DROPS Design 25.11.2018 kl. 16:04:

Dag Stephanie,

Standaard maat voor naalden zonder knop is ongeveer 40 cm, Deze kun je prima gebruiken. 20 cm zou ook wel kunnen, maar dat is misschien net wat te krap en dan moet je heel erg opletten dat er geen steken per ongeluk af schuiven.

Bonjour, je suis surprise de voir que les côtes de l’encolure sont à tricoter avec des aiguilles 7 alors que celles des bas de dos/devant et des manches sont tricotées en 6. Ne vont-elles pas être trop lâches ? Merci de votre réponse,cordialement

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 13:19:

Bonjour Mme Henneton, on va effectivement reprendre l'aiguille circulaire 6 pour tricoter les côtes, la correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

Henneton 04.11.2018 - 19:30:

Bonjour, Je suis étonnée que les côtes de l’encolure soient tricotées avec les aiguilles 7 alors que celles du bas des dos/devant et des manches sont tricotées avec des aiguilles 6? Merci de votre réponse! Cordialement

Hallo, moet de boordsteek bovenaan het voor- en achterpand ook met een naald van 6mm gebreid worden zoals bij de boordsteek aan de onderkant? Of moet je daar gewoon doorgaan met de 7mm naald? Alvast bedankt.

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 12:16:

Dag Laura, Voor de boordsteek bovenaan kun je inderdaad gewoon verder gaan met naald 7 mm.

La ringrazio, è stata gentilissima, buona giornata

Maria 19.09.2018 - 22:24:

Non mi è chiara una cosa.. per quanto riguarda la faglia s sono 144 punti totali avanti e dietro? Calcolando il lavoro quando si divide tra il davanti e il dietro sono 66 m. Ma viene sttesstissimo, non misura 51 cm il collo ma la metà..

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 10:50:

Buongiorno Maria. Le maglie da avviare per il davanti e il dietro sono 144. Le misure e il numero delle maglie sono corretti se il suo campione corrisponde a quello indicato nelle spiegazioni. Buon lavoro!

Marie 03.09.2018 - 13:36:

Bonjour Est ce que je pourrais commencer les manches par le haut en prenant le nombre final et en relevant ce nombre de mailles directement sur le corps du tricot ? Cela m'éviterait d'assembler le haut des manches , soit l'arrondi qui en réalité est tout droit. En ayant bien sur cousu le haut des épaules du devant et arrière du travail , mais pas encore les cotés. Et terminer les coutures des cotés et le long des manches en dernier . Merci bcp.

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:22:

Bonjour Marie, vous pouvez effectivement relever les mailles des manches le long de l'emmanchure et les tricoter de haut en bas si vous préférez. Il vous faudra alors ajuster les explications qui elles sont indiquées de bas en haut. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous conseiller si besoin, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Quanta lana di gruppo D devo usare?

Oksana 16.08.2018 - 16:27:

I agree with previous comments - it describes a nonstandard neck formation and doesnt say about it additionly, giving whole picture for better understanding. May be there is a sense to make a tutorial video - might help. I havent got this moment: ... and knit up 2 stitches in each side (between the stitches for the neck and the stitches on the shoulder)... So are these stickes to be knitted up exactly on two sides of the middle 32-32-34-34-36-36 stitches? Thanks!

DROPS Design 17.08.2018 kl. 09:48:

Dear Oksana, you slip the middle 32-36 sts (see size) on a thread and work 2 rows over the first 17-31 sts casting off 1 st towards neck on 2nd row, slip these sts on a thread. Work then 2 rows over the last 17-31 sts casting off 1 st towards neck on 2nd row. Work now 1 row over all sts: 16-30 sts from 1st shoulder, pick up 2 sts in the 2 rows worked over shoulder sts, work the middle sts for neck, pick up 2 sts in the 2 rows worked over 2nd shoulder and work the remaining 16-30 sts. On next row from WS increase evenly and work rib for 7 cm over all sts. Happy knitting!
