Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The whole of A.4 is worked in stocking stitch – use the right diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP-1:
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread in the side. Knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch, knit 1, pass the slip stitch over the knitted stitch. When decreasing in the sides, work the stitches that do not fit in A.3 in stocking stich.

DECREASE TIP-2:
To work out how to decrease along the row, count all the stitches on the needle (e.g. 396 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 42) = 9.4. In other words, in this example knit together approx. every 8th and 9th stitch. Decrease by knitting 2 stitches together.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase mid underarm: Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches) and make 1 yarn over. On the next round work the yarn over stitches twisted to prevent holes (the increased stitches are worked in stocking stitch).

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked around):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

ELEVATION:
Cut the strand and begin mid back – insert a marker here. Work knit across the first 7-7-7-8-8-8 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 14-14-14-16-16-16 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 21-21-21-24-24-24 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 28-28-28-32-32-32 stitches. Continue back and forth in this way by knitting 7-7-7-8-8-8 stitches more each time until you have knitted across the middle 63-63-63-72-72-72 stitches on the needle, knit to the marker thread mid back.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The jumper is worked in the round on circular needle from bottom up.

BODY:
Cast on 357-399-441-462-504-546 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and pistachio. Work A.1 across all the stitches (= 17-19-21-22-24-26 repeats in width). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the next to last round of A.1 is completed there are 238-266-294-308-336-364 stitches on the needle, on the last round of A.1 adjust the number of stitches evenly along the round to 240-270-288-312-342-372 stitches. Work A.2 across all the stitches (= 40-45-48-52-57-62 repeats in width). Insert 2 marker threads in the piece, one at the beginning of the round and one after 120-135-144-156-171-186 stitches (= one marker thread in each side of the jumper). When the piece measures 8 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased) – READ DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease every 3 cm in total 8-9-9-9-9-9 times = 208-234-252-276-306-336 stitches. When the piece measures 34-34-35-35-35-35 cm cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches in each side (= 5-5-6-6-7-8 stitches on each side of both marker threads) = 188-214-228-252-278-304 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round on double pointed needles from bottom up, change to a small circular needle when there are enough stitches.
Cast on 50-52-56-58-60-64 stitches with double pointed needle size 3 mm and pistachio. Work A.3 across all the stitches. When A.3 has been completed once in height continue working stocking stitch across all the stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round = mid underarm. When the piece measures 6-6-6-6-8-8 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread mid underarm – READ INCREASE TIP. Increase every 3-2-1½-1½-1-1 cm in total 13-17-20-21-23-23 times = 76-86-96-100-106-110 stitches. When the sleeve measures 44-43-43-42-40-39 cm cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches mid underarm (= 5-5-6-6-7-8 stitches on each side of the marker thread) = 66-76-84-88-92-94 stitches. Work another sleeve in the same way.

YOKE:
Work the sleeves on to the same circular needle size 3 mm as the body where there are cast-off stitches for the armholes, at the same time decrease 2-0-0-4-6-4 stitches evenly along the round = 318-366-396-424-456-488 stitches. Work A.4 across all the stitches (= 53-61-66-53-57-61 repeats of A.4). Continue this pattern upwards, AT THE SAME TIME decrease 36-42-42-40-40-48 stitches evenly along each round with an arrow – READ DECREASE TIP-2. When A.4 is completed in height there are 102-114-144-144-176-152 stitches on the needle. Work 1 round knit where a further 6-14-40-36-64-36 stitches are decreased evenly along the round = 96-100-104-108-112-116 stitches. For a better fit you can work a small ELEVATION at the back of the neck with off white – see description above. Finish by working 2 RIDGES with off white – see description above, then cast off. The jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm to the shoulder.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Bitte Gimming 14.06.2018 - 09:24:

Hei! Vedr lengden på ermene. I oppskrifen står det: "Når ermet måler 44-43-43-42-40-39 cm felles det av osv." Jeg strikker i str M, og da skal lengden være 43 cm. Stemmer det at ermene i de små størrelsene skal være lengre enn i de større? Mvh Bitte

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 14:10:

Hei Bitte. Ja det stemmer, de større størrelsene har videre ermkuppel/skulderparti og derfor strikkes de ikke like lange som de mindre størrelsene. God fornøyelse.

Rose 31.05.2018 - 14:26:

Kunt u misschien een aangepaste versie van het patroon plaatsen? Ik ben geen ervaren breister dus durf niet zelf de maat te nemen en het aantal steken uit te rekenen. Ik zou niet weten hoe, eerlijk gezegd! Ik draag confectiemaat S/M, dus een omvang van ongeveer 90 cm gemeten over de billen.

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 15:13:

Dag Rose, Helaas is het voor ons niet mogelijk om patronen naar persoonlijke wens aan te passen. Je kunt wel altijd hulp vragen bij de winkel waar je het garen hebt gekocht en wellicht heb je wat aan de artikelen onder het kopje Tips&Hulp.

Rose 27.05.2018 - 09:31:

Hoe kan ik het patroon aanpassen zodat de onderkant van de trui niet wijd uitloopt, maar gewoon recht? Ik houd niet zo van wijde modellen. Ideaal vind ik een beetje getailleerd, dus smaller in de taille, maar aan de onderkant wel aangesloten. Een recht model is ook goed, maar niet wijd uitlopend. Dan wordt het een beetje een jurkje :-)

Maike 07.05.2017 - 15:13:

Gibt es eine bestimmte Regel zur Abnahme von Maschen bei gleichzeitigem Erhalt (bzw. rudimentären) Fortsetzen des Mustersatzes - insbesondere beim Stricken in Runden? Stricke ich z.B. immer die letzen 5/4/3... oder die ersten 5/4/3... Maschen des MS um ein gleichmäßiges Muster über die gesamte Passe beizubehalten? Schon jetzt vielen herzlichen Dank!

DROPS Design 08.05.2017 kl. 10:59:

Liebe Maike, hier können sie lesen, wie man gleichmäßig abnehmen wird. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Katrin Zolchow 07.05.2017 - 07:32:

Sehr geehrteschön Team, Die Erhöhung im Nacken kann gestrickt werden. Was ist, wenn ich diese nicht stricke? Sitzt dann der hinteren Bereich tiefer, zieht er sich sehr herunter? Wenn ich die Erhöhung stricke verschwindet dann die schöne runde Passform?

DROPS Design 08.05.2017 kl. 10:44:

Liebe Frau Zolchow, die Erhöhung wird dann mehr Reihen hinten am Rückenteil geben, so wird die Halsauschnitt weniger hoch beim Vorderteil und höher beim Rücktenteil. Dieses Video zeigt with man eine Erhöhung strikt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ida 06.05.2017 - 12:00:

Undrar hur man ska göra när man stickar fram- och bakstycke och har kommit fram till delen där man ska sticka A.2 samtidigt som man ska minska 2 maskor i varje sida var 3:e cm. Det innebär ju att antalet maskor minskar och hålen (omslagen) i A.2 hamnar inte på rätt ställe. Hur gör man? Tacksam för svar!

DROPS Design 08.05.2017 kl. 15:15:

Hej Ida, jo du skall se till at hålmönstret (2m r tillsm, 1 omslag) fortsätter så du får hålen över varandra, det vill säga att när du har minskat 2 m, har du inga m kvar till yttersta hålet mot sidan, så du stickar slätst. fram till nästa hål i diagrammet och fortsätter enligt diagrammet. Lycka till!

Mona Kristengård 24.04.2017 - 17:39:

Hvor på strikketøyet begynner man på mønsteret? Etter første ermet?

DROPS Design 26.04.2017 kl. 09:29:

Hei Mona. Du strikker ermene inn på samme rundpinne som bolen der det er felt av masker til ermhull og på første omgang bolen og ermene strikker sammen felles det 2-0-0-4-6-4 masker jevnt fordelt = 318-366-396-424-456-488 masker. Når du har satt på begge ermene, starter du på diagram A.4 over alle maskene. God Fornøyelse!

Jenny Forsberg 12.04.2017 - 21:38:

Hur är storlekarna?

DROPS Design 13.04.2017 kl. 13:38:

Hej! Du ser måtten på måttskissen nederst i mönstret.

Thomas 29.03.2017 - 10:26:

Hei, Hva er de egentlige målene på ermene? Trenger riktig lengde fra s-xxxl. Mvh Thomas Garnius.no AS

DROPS Design 29.03.2017 kl. 10:38:

Hej Thomas, Når ermet måler 44-43-43-42-40-39 cm felles det av 10-10-12-12-14-16 masker midt under ermet og her starter det runde bærestykke som måler 18-20-21-23-25-27 cm ifølge måleskitsen. God fornøjelse!

Elaine Bird 24.03.2017 - 16:52:

Can you tell me the size equivalents in inches or cms for S-M-L etc Cheers
