RIDGE/GARTER STITCH(worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Work 1 round knit and 1 round purl.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.5.

RAGLAN:
SLEEVE:
The increases on the sleeve are a part of diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.4. Increase 1 stitch in each side of each sleeve every 2nd round, knit the yarn overs on next round, there will be holes.

BODY:
Increase 1 stitch in each side of the front piece and 1 stitch in each side of the back piece as follows (= in total 4 stitches increased):
Increase as follows: Start 2 stitches before A.1: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2, work A.1, knit 2, make 1 yarn over. Repeat before and after the next A.1. Knit the yarn overs on next round, there will be holes.

When increasing every 4th round, increase as follows:
ROUND 1: Start 2 stitches before A.1: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2, work A.1, knit 2, make 1 yarn over. Repeat before and after the next A.1.
ROUND 2: Knit the yarn overs, there will be holes.
ROUND 3: Start 4 stitches before A.1: Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, work A.1, knit 2, make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the stitch that was knitted – there are no increases, but the row of holes continues as before. Repeat before and after the next A.1.
ROUND 4: Knit the yarn overs, there will be holes.

INCREASE TIP:
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over. Knit the yarn overs twisted on the next round.

DECREASE TIP:
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. The stitches that do not fit the pattern mid under sleeve are worked in stocking stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER: 
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. Cast on 94-98-102-106-110-114 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, on the last round of the ridges increase 20 stitches evenly along the round = 114-118-122-126-130-134 stitches. Continue working as follows: Work 19-20-21-22-23-24 stitches stocking stitch (= half the back piece), 1 yarn over, 1 stitch stocking stitch, A.1 (= 17 stitches) (= right sleeve), 1 stitch stocking stitch, 1 yarn over, 38-40-42-44-46-48 stitches stocking stitch (= front piece), 1 yarn over, 1 stitch stocking stitch, A.1 (= left sleeve), 1 stitch stocking stitch, 1 yarn over, 19-20-21-22-23-24 stitches stocking stitch (= half the back piece). The first increase to RAGLAN is now complete. Continue upwards with this division of pattern and stocking stitch. Increase to raglan as described above. On the sleeve increase every 2nd round 22-26-29-31-32-33 times, on the body increase every round 0-0-0-0-0-6 times, then every 2nd round 14-16-17-25-32-30 times and finally every 4th round 4-5-6-3-0-0 times.

NOTE! When A.1 is finished, continue working as follows (across the stitches on the sleeves): A.2 (= 8 stitches), A.3 (= 12 stitches), A.4 (= 7 stitches). When A.2, A.3 and A.4 have been worked 1 time in height work as follows: A.2, A.3 across the next 36 stitches (= 3 repeats), A.4. Every time that A.2 to A.4 are worked one time in height continue with 2 more repeats of A.3 between A.2 and A.4. Finish A.2, A.3 and A.4 when you have increased a total of 22-26-29-31-32-33 times on the sleeves and a total of 18-21-23-28-32-36 times on the front piece and back piece.

After all the increases, there are now 61-69-75-79-81-83 stitches on each sleeve, 76-84-90-102-112-122 stitches on the front piece and back piece = 274-306-330-362-386-410 stitches in total. The next round is worked as follows:

Work 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches (= half the back piece), place the next 61-69-75-79-81-83 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches, work the next 76-84-90-102-112-122 stitches (= front piece), place the next 61-69-75-79-81-83 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches, work the last 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches (= half the back piece).

BODY:
There are now 168-184-200-224-248-272 stitches on the body. Continue with stocking stitch. Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches which were cast on. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE. When the piece measures 3 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread (= 4 stitches increased), increase every 7 cm in total 4 times – READ INCREASE TIP! = 184-200-216-240-264-288 stitches. When the piece measures 27-26-26-26-27-29 cm work A.5 across all the stitches, then cast off. The piece measures approx. 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm from the cast-on edge.

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the thread back on double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches that were cast on under the sleeve = 69-77-85-89-93-97 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches = mid under sleeve. Continue with A.3, the stitches that do not fit the pattern mid under sleeve are worked in stocking stitch. Continue with this pattern. When the piece measures 3-3-3-5-5-5 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread, decrease every 3-2-1½-1½-1-1 cm in total 9-12-15-16-17-18 times – READ DECREASE TIP = 51-53-55-57-59-61 stitches. When the piece measures 33-30-29-28-28-28 cm work A.5 across all the stitches. Cast off when A.5 has been worked once in height, the sleeve measures approx. 36-33-32-31-31-31 cm. Work the other
sleeve the same way.

This pattern has been corrected. .

JUMPER:...On the sleeve increase every 2nd row 22-26-29-31-32-33 times, on the body increase every row 0-0-0-0-0-6 times, then every 2nd row 14-16-17-25-32-30 times, and finally every 4th row 4-5-6-3-0-0 times.

Claudine 07.06.2019 - 09:30:

Hi. I'm making the XL size and I'm on the first lot of increasing and on the sleeve 17sts and 31 increases gives the total of 79sts at the end but on the body 22/44sts and 28 increases only gives 50/100sts when finished and not 51/102 as stated? I can't see where I'm going wrong? Many thanks.

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 10:37:

Dear Claudine, you increase on body a total of 29 times (1st inc is explained + on every other round 25 times + on every 4th round 3 times) (= 44 + 29 x 2 sts inc = 102 sts (51 sts on each half back piece) and increase on sleeve a total of 31 times (= 17 + 30x2 = 77 sts), so that you have: 51 sts (back piece), 1 st, 77 sts sts (sleeve), 1 st, 102 sts (front piece), 1 st, 77 sts (sleeve), 1 st, 51 sts (back piece) = 362 sts. Happy knitting!

Laetitia 30.05.2019 - 01:46:

Bonjour, Concernant les augmentations des devant et dos, je suis décalée. Faut-il conserver les 2mailles endroit avant et après A1 ou le nombre de ces mailles évoluent avec les augmentations ?

DROPS Design 30.05.2019 kl. 17:56:

Bonjour Laetitia! Les augmentations du raglan pour les manches sont indiquées dans les diagrammes (d'abord A.1 puis A.2/A.4 = début/fin de la manche). Pour le dos et le devant, augmentez comme indiqué sous RAGLAN DOS & DEVANT avant/après A.1: en commençant 2 mailles avant A.1 (quant on augmente tous les 2 tours), et alternativement - soit 2 mailles avant A.1, soit 4 mailles avant A.1 (quant on augmente tous les 4 tours). Bon tricot!

Galadrielle L 02.03.2019 - 15:40:

Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup ce modèle. Mais j'en suis aux manches et je ne comprend pas comment reprendre le diagramme A3. Les mailles à tricoter en jersey sous la manche sont seulement les mailles relevées ? et comment reprendre le motif du diagramme en se basant seulement sur le A3 ? car le début du rang ne correspond par avec le début de A3. Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 08:18:

Bonjour Galadrielle, vous continuez A.3 sur les mailles de la manche en continuant le motif comme avant - vous pouvez tricoter certaines nouvelles mailles relevées en A.3 si besoin. Les autres mailles relevées seront à tricoter en jersey. Bon tricot!

Aniko 07.06.2018 - 00:33:

(2/2) Sorry, comment was too long. Then the description suggests to continue with the same division of pattern and stocking stitches. To me this means that I do again 19 st, 1 yo, 1 st, A.1, etc. But this way there are only 118 stitches that I can knit over, so I have +4 at the end of the 2nd round. Can you please tell me what am I doing wrong here?

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 09:20:

When continuing the pattern, you will now work until 1 st remain before A.1 (= K20 on next round), then K1, work 2nd row in A.1, K all sts until next A.1, work 2nd row in A.1 and finish with 21 sts (= K1 after A.1, Yo from previous row + K19 from previous row). Continue increasing as explained under RAGLAN/ BODY as explained at the beginning of the pattern: K until 2 sts remain before A.1, YO on back piece, K2, A.1, K2, YO, K front piece until 2 sts remain before A.1, YO, K2, A.1, K2, YO and work remaining sts on back piece. Happy knitting!

Aniko 07.06.2018 - 00:32:

(1/2) Hi GarnStudio, I am quite new to knitting and I am already stuck at the beginning. I started with the first 2 ridges and increased 20 stitches. I am making a small jumper so I have a total of 114 stitches. I followed the instruction on continuing: I worked 19 st, 1 yo, 1 st, A.1, etc. This results in a total of 122 stitches after the 1st round, because there are 2*2 increases in the pattern and we do 4 yarn overs.

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 09:16:

Dear Aniko, that's right after this first round you have increased a total of 8 sts (= 2 sts in each A.1 + 2 sts on front piece and 2 sts on back piece). You have worked the first increase for raglan: the increase for raglan on sleeves are included in diagram and on front and back piece you increase 1 st before/after A.1.

Heloise M 18.05.2018 - 09:51:

Merci pour votre réponse ! J’ai juste besoin d’une petite précision : (toujours pour les augmentations du dos/corps) les jetés suffisent-t-ils pour faire les augmentations (donc 4 mailles en plus tout les 2 tours) ou faut-il en plus faire 4 augmentations dans le jersey en plus (donc 8 mailles en plus tout les 2 tours? Merci beaucoup en tout cas de repondre aussi vite!

DROPS Design 18.05.2018 kl. 10:36:

Bonjour Heloise, les jetés sont les augmentations du raglan, pour le devant et le dos, augmentez: 0-0-0-0-0-6 fois tous les tours, 14-16-17-25-32-30 fois tous les 2 tours et enfin 4-5-6-3-0-0 fois tous les 4 tours (et en même temps 22-26-29-31-32-33 fois tous les 2 tours pour les manches en suivant les diagrammes). Bon tricot!

Heloise M 17.05.2018 - 21:05:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas les explications sur les augmentations au niveau du corps du pull... mon raglan est dans le mauvais sens. Pourriez vous mieux expliquer quand les augmentations sont tout les 2 rangs? Merci

DROPS Design 18.05.2018 kl. 08:56:

Bonjour Heloise, les augmentations du raglan pour les manches sont indiquées dans les diagrammes (d'abord A.1 puis A.2/A.4 = début/fin de la manche). Pour le dos et le devant, augmentez comme indiqué sous RAGLAN DOS & DEVANT avant/après A.1, quand vous augmentez tous les 2 tours: tricotez le rang après l'augmentation en jersey (et les jetés à l'endroit pour qu'ils forment des trous). Quand vous augmenterez tous les 4 tours: répétez les 4 tours indiqués pour que les jours des augmentations du raglan continuent même quand on n'augmente pas (= tour 3). Bon tricot!

Rikke Mikkelsen 02.05.2018 - 09:10:

Jeg sidder og sammenligner Wind Down og denne bluse. Jeg kan egentlig bedst lide udskæring og facon på wind down men ærmerne på denne model er meget kønnere. Kan man kombinere de to opskrifter på en god måde?

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 12:03:

Hej Rikke, der er ikke stor forskel på selve udskæringen, den er bare lidt mindre i Wind Down. Vælg Honey Blossom, og strik bredde og længde efter Wind Down. Eller så vælger du Wind Down og følger ærmerne i Honey Blossom. Vi kan desværre ikke hjælpe dig med at sætte de to opskrifter sammen. God fornøjelse!

Neupauer 03.03.2018 - 18:08:

In dem Diagramm sind beim Muster leere Kästchen eingezeichnet, wahrscheinlich ist ein Umschlag gemeint, aber bei „zwei Maschen wie zum Rechtsstricken abheben usw, wird man aus dem leeren Kästchen nicht schlau. Gibt es diesen schönen Pulli in einem Anleitungsheft zum Bestellen?

DROPS Design 05.03.2018 kl. 08:39:

Liebe Frau Neupauer, in der 5., 13. und 21. Reihe A.2-A.4 wird die erste Maschen A.3 zusammen mit der letzten Maschen A.2 gestrickt, und die erste Masche der nächste A.3/A.4 zusammen mit den letzten Maschen in A.3 gestrickt, beachten Sie nur, daß die Maschenanzahl in jedem Diagram stimmt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Melanie 02.03.2018 - 07:43:

Guten Tag, dies ist mein erster Pullover den ich auf diese Art (von oben nach unten) stricke. Bei den Zunahmen Größe L soll man für das halbe Rückenteil bzw. Vorderteil 21/42 Maschen stricken und dazwischen die Ärmel mit Zunahme. Bedeutet dies dass man in der nächsten Zunahmenrunde dann 22/44 bei Rücken-Vorderteil stricken muss und so immer jeweils 1/2 Maschen dazuzählen muss pro 2. Runde? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 02.03.2018 kl. 08:43:

Liebe Melanie, so stimmt es. Bei den Ärmel haben Sie auch 2 M mehr nach jeder Zunahmerunde. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
