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

CHANGING THE STRAND TIP:
So that the transitions between colours in Delight are as neat as possible when changing balls, it is important to find a ball which starts with the colour the previous ball ended with.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.9. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch by knitting 2 stitches together.
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 88 stitches) and divide the number of stitches by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 5) = 17.6. In this example you work approx. every 17th and 18th stitch together.



RAGLAN:
Decrease to raglan in each transition between body and sleeves. NOTE: In sizes S, M and XXL decreases are different on the body and sleeves as described in the text.
Decrease as follows after A.9: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before A.9: Start 2 stitches before A.9 and knit 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, from the bottom up. The sleeves are worked with double pointed needles.

BODY:
Cast on 270-297-324-351-378-405 stitches with circular needle size 5.5 mm with 1 strand in each colour (= 2 strands).
Work A.1 (= 27 stitches) 10-11-12-13-14-15 times in width. When the whole of A.1 has been completed in height there are 230-253-276-299-322-345 stitches on the round. Work A.2 (= 23 stitches) over each repeat of A.1. Continue in this way until A.2 has been completed 3-3-3-3-3-4 times in height – READ CHANGING THE STRAND TIP! REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work A.3 (= 23 stitches) 1 time in height. When the whole of A.3 has been completed in height there are 210-231-252-273-294-315 stitches on the round. Work A.4 (= 21 stitches) 2 times in height in all sizes. Work A.5 (= 21 stitches) 1 time in height. When the whole of A.5 has been completed in height there are 190-209-228-247-266-285 stitches on the round. Work A.6 (= 19 stitches) 3 times in height in all sizes. Then work A.7 (= 19 stitches). When A.7 has been completed in height there are 150-165-180-195-210-225 stitches on the round. Knit 1 round where you decrease 10-11-14-13-8-5 stitches evenly along the round = 140-154-166-182-202-220 stitches. Then work the next round as follows: Knit 32-35-38-42-47-52 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the last stitch knitted, cast off 6 stitches for the armhole, knit 64-71-77-85-95-104 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the first and last stitch knitted, cast off 6 stitches for the armhole, knit 32-36-39-43-48-52 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the first stitch knitted. Put aside and work sleeves.

SLEEVES:
Cast on 32-34-36-40-42-46 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm with 1 strand in each colour (= 2 strands). Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.8. When A.8 has been completed 1 time in height change to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and allow the marker thread to follow the work upwards. Work stocking stitch in the round.
When the piece measures 10-12-7-5-5-10 cm increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 7th-5th-5th-5th-4th-4th round a total of 10-12-14-14-14-14 times = 52-58-64-68-70-74 stitches. When the piece measures 46-44-44-42-41-40 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke) cast off 6 stitches mid under the sleeve (i.e. cast off 3 stitches on each side of the marker thread) = 46-52-58-62-64-68 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work the other sleeve in the same way.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle as the body where you have cast off stitches for the armholes (do this without working the stitches) = 220-246-270-294-318-344 stitches on the needle. There are now 4 marker thread in the piece (1 marker thread in each transition between body and sleeves). Continue by working stocking stitch and A.9 in each transition between body and sleeves (the stitches with marker threads are the middle stitches in A.9). AT THE SAME TIME on the first round start the decreases to RAGLAN – see the description above. NOTE: Decreases vary in the different sizes.

SIZES S, M AND XXL:
The decreases are different on body and sleeves.
FRONT AND BACK PIECES: Decrease 1 stitch every 2nd round (= 4 stitches decreased on the round) a total of 18-20-25 times.
SLEEVES: Decrease 1 stitch every 4th round a total of 2-2-1 times and every 2nd round (= 4 stitches decreased on the round) a total of 13-16-23 times. Change to short circular needle size 5.5 mm when the number of stitches has been sufficiently reduced.

SIZES L, XL AND XXXL:
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of each A.9 (= 8 stitches decreased on the round). Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 21-23-26 times. Change to short circular needle size 5.5 mm when the number of stitches has been sufficiently reduced.

ALL SIZES:
When all the decreases have been completed there are 88-94-102-110-122-136 stitches on the round. Work 1 round where you decrease 5-8-12-16-24-34 stitches evenly along the round – READ DECREASE TIP = 83-86-90-94-98-102 stitches. Change to short circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above and cast off. Make sure the cast-off edge is not tight!

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Buongiorno, bellissimo questo modello; io vorrei farlo aperto davanti, per cui lavorarlo con i ferri avanti e indietro. Qualcuno ha già provato? In ogni caso, i diagrammi A.n sono formati da 6 giri o bisogna intervallare anche un giro di rovescio, lavorando le maglie come si presentano? Grazie per l'attenzione Valeria

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 12:09:

Buongiorno Valeria. I diagrammi mostrano tutti i ferri del motivo, quindi lavorando avanti e indietro ci sono anche i ferri di ritorno. La riga dove trova i simboli per lavorare 2 m insieme a diritto , 2 maglie gettate, sono lavorate sul diritto del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Liv 04.12.2018 - 15:31:

Ja dette e det jeg kan se av forklaringer til diagrammet. Jeg har 6 forklaringer, men det er 7 tegn Diagram = rett = vrang = 1 kast om pinnen, på neste omgang strikkes kastet rett slik at det blir hull = 2 kast mellom 2 masker, på neste omgang slippes det ene kastet ned og det andre strikkes rett = 2 rett sammen = ta 2 masker løs av pinnen som om de skulle strikkes rett sammen, strikk 1 rett, løft de 2 løse maskene over (= 2 masker felt)

Liv 04.12.2018 - 09:35:

Hei Hvordan strikkes A8. Kan ikke se tegn beskrivelse i diagram

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 14:13:

Hei Liv. Er det symbolforklaringen du ikke kan se? Vi har nå sjekket dette og den skal være synlig. gjelder dette uansett hvaslags enhet du bruker? A.8 består av 2 masker og strikkes slik: 1 omg: rett, 2 omg: vrang, 3 omg: rett, 4 omg: vrang, 5 og 6 omg: rett. 7 omg: 2 rett sammen, 2 kast på neste omgang slippes det ene kastet ned og det andre strikkes rett, 8 og 9 omg: rett, 10 omg: vrang, 11 omg: rett, 12 omg: vrang. God fornøyelse

Liv 30.11.2018 - 23:55:

Hei Kommer til A2 2 kast mellom 2 masker på neste omgang slippes det ene kaste ned. Det er 8 med kast i mellom det vil 7 mellomrom med kast, men jeg feller tilsamme 8 masker. Vil jeg da ikke miste 1 maske.

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 12:11:

Hei Liv. Det stemmer at du feller 8 masker, men det er også 8 kast på omgangen (= 16 kast, der halvparten slippes ned). Så du feller og øker like mange masker, slik at maskeantallet er uendret. Du strikker altså 4 ganger 2 masker rett sammen, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 1 rett, 2 kast, 4 ganger 2 masker rett sammen. God fornøyelse.

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 08:51:

Dear Sophie, have you checked your tension? Do you have 16 sts x 20 rows in stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm? If your tension is correct, you will have the correct measurements shown in the chart - read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Mala 08.10.2018 - 16:58:

Hallo, ich würde mir gerne diesen Pullover in anderen Farben stricken. Welche Farbe lässt sich gut mit Farbe 18 herbstwald kombinieren. Ich finde es sehr schwierig, das am Bildschirm zu berurteilen. Danke.LG

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:01:

Liebe Mala, nehmen Sie bitte am besten Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden auf - auch telefonisch oder per E-mail, sie werden Ihnen helfen, die besten Kombinationsmöglichkeit zu finden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kiki 18.09.2018 - 20:05:

Hallo also ich habe jetzt schon das 4te mal angefangen... mache iegendeinen Gedankenfehler. Stricke in S...Muster sieht immer anders aus. Muss ich über A.2 3mal A.1 stricken? Die Maschenzahl stimmt doch nicht mehr. Sind nur noch 23 Maschen statt 27.. Liebe Grüße aus Hannover

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 09:44:

Liebe Kiki, zuerst stricken Sie A.1 (= 27 Maschen) aber in der 3. Reihe in A.1 werden Sie 4 Maschen in jedem A.1 abnehmen = es sind nur noch 23 M in jedem A.1. Dann stricken Sie A.2 (= 23 M) über jedem A.1. Wenn A.2 3 Mal in der Höhe gestrickt wird, stricken Sie A.3 = 2 M werden dann in jedem A.2 abgenommen = 21 M bleiben übrig für A.4. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kiki 10.09.2018 - 10:22:

Hey möchte mit den Pulli stricken und habe ein Problem kann mir bitte einer helfen bitte... bei mit in der Anleitung werden zur Erklärung zum Diagram die Symbole nicht angezeigt sodas ich deshalb nicht weiß wie ich Sie abzustricken habe. Vielleicht kann mit ja jemand ein Foto schicken.. wäre echt toll. Danke im Vorraus Liebe Grüße aus Hannover

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 08:41:

Liebe Kiki, wegen Wartungsarbeiten waren die Bilder vor einigen Stunden nicht verfügbar, aber alles ist jetzt wieder in Ordnung. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bente Theibel 12.06.2018 - 13:23:

Jeg har købt garn tilspring forest Drops 178-27, så flot garn. Er nu kommet til A2 i opskriften. I diagrammet står der lav to omslag mellem 2 masker. Hvordan skal det forståes rigtigt, jeg synes det giver en masse ekstra masker da A2 skal holdes på 23 masker???? Håber i kan hjælpe mig?

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 13:33:

Hej Bente, 4.pind (1.mønsterpind) i A.2 strikker du således (ret sammen = rs); 2rs, 2rs, 2rs, 2rs, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 1r, 2oms, 2rs, 2rs, 2rs, 2rs og så forfra igen. På næste pind strikker du det ene af de 2 omslag, det andet slipper du ned som hul. i A.2 har du lige mange omslag som du strikker masker sammen, det vil sige at du har samme antal masker. I A.3 har du 2 mindre omslag end hvad du tager ind, det vil sige at du har 2 masker mindre for hver gang du strikker rapporten. God fornøjelse!

M. Van Kerkhof 30.04.2018 - 08:28:

Zoals ik ook al teruglees bij de overige opmerkingen, valt de trui erg kort uit als ik brei zoals het patroon het voorschrijft. Ik vind het moeilijk om de vaktermen te vertalen uit het Duits en Engels. Maar ik begrijp dat ik A6 vaker moet breien voordat ik met de armsgaten ga beginnen. Het is mij alleen niet duidelijk hoe vaak ik het gedeelte van A6 nog moet breien en of ik daarbij ook nog steken moet minderen. Hopelijk kunt u me dat vertellen.\r\nBij voorbaat dank.
