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 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 175 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 31) = 5.6. In this example work alternately approx. every 4th and 5th stitch and every 5th and 6th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Work until 1 stitch remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armholes, then work front and back piece back and forth on circular needle until finished measurements. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 175-190-200-210-230-245 stitches on circular needle size 7 mm with Melody. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round = knit 1/ purl 4. When piece measures 6 cm, knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 31-34-36-34-38-41 stitches evenly - READ DECREASE TIP= 144-156-164-176-192-204 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 8 mm. Insert 1 marker thread in first stitch on round and 1 marker thread in 73rd-79th-83rd-89th-97th-103rd stitch on round (= 71-77-81-87-95-101 stitches between stitches with marker threads on front and back piece). Work next round as follows:
Size: S + XXL: Work A.1 in the round (= 6-8 repetitions of 24 stitches).
Size: M + L + XL + XXXL: Work 3-5-8-3 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 over the next 72-72-72-96 stitches, A.2 (= 1 stitch), 5-9-15-5 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 over the next 72-72-72-96 stitches, A.2 (= 1 stitch), finish with 2-4-7-2 stitches in stocking stitch.
Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures approx. 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm – adjust so that next round is a row with uneven number in diagram, cast off 11-11-11-13-13-13 stitches in each side for armholes (stitch with marker thread + 5-5-5-6-6-6 stitch on each side of this). Finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 61-67-71-75-83-89 stitches. Begin from wrong side and continue pattern back and forth as before with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side – work the stitches that do not fit the pattern in stocking stitch. When piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm, cast off the middle 19-19-19-21-21-21 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Cast off 2 stitches on next row from neck = 19-22-24-25-29-32 stitches remain on the shoulder. Work until 1 row remain before piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm. Knit 1 row from wrong side and cast off by knitting from right side (it is important to avoid a tight cast-off edge). Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 61-67-71-75-83-89 stitches. Continue back and forth the same way as on back piece until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. Now slip the middle 17-17-17-19-19-19 stitches on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off for neck at beginning of every row from neck as follows: 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 1 time = 19-22-24-25-29-32 stitches remain for shoulder. Work until 1 row remain before piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm. Knit 1 row from wrong side and cast off by knitting from right side. Work the other shoulder the same way.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 30-30-30-30-35-35 stitches on double pointed needles size 7 mm with Melody. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round = knit 1/ purl 4. When piece measures 4 cm, knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 3-3-1-1-4-4 stitches evenly = 27-27-29-29-31-31 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 8 mm. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Work next round as follows: 1-1-2-2-3-3 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 (= 24 stitches), A.2 (= 1 stitch), 1-1-2-2-3-3 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 8-6-6-6-8-8 cm, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 4-3½-3½-3-2½-2 cm 9-10-10-11-12-13 times in total = 45-47-49-51-55-57 stitches. Continue until piece measures approx. 43-41-41-40-38-36 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders) - adjust so that next row is an even numbered row in diagram. Insert 1 marker in the piece. Begin from wrong side and continue pattern back and forth on circular needle from mid under sleeve. When piece measures 4 cm from marker, work 2 rows while casting off 5 stitches at beginning of every row. Cast off the remaining stitches. Piece measures approx. 48-46-46-45-43-41 cm from top and down. Knit another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside cast-off edge so that there are 2 ridges on top of shoulder. Sew in sleeves inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch - marker mid under sleeve should fit armhole.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from right side approx. 56 to 62 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holder at the front) on a short circular needle size 7 mm. Purl 1 round, knit 1 round, purl 1 round, knit 1 round and purl 1 round. Then LOOSELY cast off by knitting.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= from right side: Purl 2 together
= BOBBLE: Knit 1 in front and back loop of same stitch until there are 4 stitches, turn and purl 1 row from wrong side over these 4 stitches, turn and knit 1 row from right side. Use left needle and pass second stitch on right needle over first stitch and off the needle, pass third stitch over first stitch and then fourth stitch over first stitch (= 1 stitch remains)

Måste denna tröja stickas på rundsticka? Tycker det är svårt. Kan man inte bara lägga till kantmaska?

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 10:42:

Hej. Det bör inte vara några problem att göra det, du kan läsa mer om detta här. Lycka till!

Maud 26.01.2019 - 12:14:

Bonjour, j’ai repéré une erreur dans le diagramme A1 au rang 45 après la jeté, c’est une end, une env et pas 2 end. Comme le rang 21.

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 12:55:

Bonjour Maud et merci, nos stylistes vont vérifier et corriger le diagramme. Bon tricot!

Katalin 06.12.2018 - 16:36:

Danke für die Antwort. Ich habe es geschafft, aber ich möchte hinzufügen , wenn jemand lange Arme hat wie ich, wird 43 cm nicht langen. Das ist viel zu kurz. Eigentlich stimmt das Bild auf der letzten Seite. 4 cm für Bündchen, 48 cm für die Ärmel, danach kommt 4 cm hin und zurück stricken und fertig. Die Beschreibung finde ich ziemlich verwirrend.

Katalin 04.12.2018 - 17:15:

Liebe Drops Design, Ich möchte nachfragen wie ich mit den Ärmel weiterstricken muss wenn ich 43 cm erreicht habe?! Soll ich die verbleibende Maschen halbieren und so hin und her weiterstricken, als ob die Ärmel Vor- und Rückseite hätten oder muss man alle 45 Maschen( bei Grösse S) auf Rundstricknadel behalten und in dieser Weise Hin-und Rückreihen noch in Höhe von 4 cm weiterstricken?! Danke füd die Antwort! Grüsse

DROPS Design 05.12.2018 kl. 08:07:

Liebe Katalin, wenn die Ärmel 43 cm misst (= nach einer ungeraden Zahl im Diagram anpassen), stricken Sie jetzt nich mehr in der Runde sondern Hin und Zurück, das heisst, am Ende der letzten ungerade Reihe, Wenden und jetzt hin und zurück stricken = die nächste gerade Zahl/Reihe von Diagram wird von der Rückseite über alle Maschen gestrickt, am Ende dieser Reihe, wenden Sie und die nächste Reihe über alle Maschen von der Vorderseite stricken. So weiter stricken, dh hin und zurück bis die Arbeit 4 cm von der Markierer stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kati 02.12.2018 - 19:25:

Kedves Drops Design, Azt szeretném megkérdezni, hogy ha az ujjánál elértem a 43 cm akkor az ujját. higy köthetem oda- vissza hiszen addog körben kellett kötni. Meg kell feleznem a szemeket és az ujjának az elejét és a hátát külön befejezni?! Kicsit érthetetlen a leírás. Nem tudom simán körkörösen kötve befejezni?! Köszönöm válaszukat.

Mel 25.11.2018 - 16:31:

Hi! I am making this sweater and finished 47cm on body part and confused when "cast off 11 st in each side for armhole (st. with marker thread +5 st on each side of this)" What does this means? do you have a video to explain? I am so confused. Because, before this, it told us to insert 1 marker on first st on round and on 73rd st (=71 st between front and back), but and then.. after cast off, here written that back piece has 61 st and front is 61 st too. How come?

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 09:43:

Dear Mel, in the first size, the first marker is in the first st at the beg of the round and the 2nd marker is in the middle of piece. Work this round as follows: work and cast off the first 6 sts at the beg of the round (= St with marker + 5 sts cast off), then work the next sts until 5 sts remain before 2nd marker, cast off the next 11 sts (= 5 sts before marker + 1 st with marker + 5 sts after marker), work the next sts until 5 sts remain and cast off these last 5 sts, cut the yarn and join it again to work back piece over the 61 sts. Happy knitting!

Nia 28.10.2018 - 09:12:

What knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 31 stitches evenly = 144 stitches, means? My cast on is 175. So, I have to divide 175 by 31? It's 5,6. So, it doesn't makes sense. Can you explain? So, I know every time I need to decrease, in which stitch. Thanks.

DROPS Design 28.10.2018 kl. 10:29:

Hi Nia! It has to be solved once and for all :) Please see the lesson HERE. Happy knitting!

Nia Melani 10.10.2018 - 10:18:

Yes, I see.. I mean, I want to buy the yarn in my country but I don't know how many I need to make this sweater.. If each ball is 300gr, then can you tell me how many ball I need?

DROPS Design 10.10.2018 kl. 11:30:

Dear Mrs Melani, you'll find all informations about the yarn in its shadecard. Happy knitting!

Nia Melani 10.10.2018 - 08:05:

Hi! how many ball of yarn I need to make this sweater? If each ball is 30g? Thanks

Jag stickar small med stickor 7, har rätt stickfasthet men tycker att den blir jättestor. ska den vara det?

DROPS Design 23.03.2018 kl. 14:27:

Jo, denna tröja blir vid. I storlek S ska bredden vara 60 cm, alltså blir omkretsen totalt 120 cm. Du hittar måttskissen nederst under beskrivningen.
