GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

EYELET ROW:
New eyelet rows begins in the middle of 2nd round of A.2 and goes diagonally towards corner stitches with markers. All eyelet rows in A.1 and A.2 continues outwards until the entire part is finished. Diagram A.2 (= 14 rounds) is repeated vertically until part is finished (except from the neck-side). Make sure that stitches with arrow is placed directly above each other.

HOLES (sleeve):
On the sleeves there are eyelet rows towards the seam under sleeve, knit on rows with increases and increase with yarn overs = holes. On all other rows work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 2, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked, knit until 4 stitches remain, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 2.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches.
Repeat these 2 rows upwards.

INCREASE INFO:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over inside 2 stitches knit, on next row knit yarn over (should make holes).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Work front piece and back piece separately as squares. Begin in the middle. Cast on and work on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 8-8-8-8-8 stitches with Brushed Alpaca Silk and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 (= 2 stitches per needle). Insert 1 marker in the first, third, fifth and seventh stitch (= 4 corner stitches with markers), move the markers upwards when working. The other four stitches are middle stitches. Work as follows: Work A.1 4 times in total on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1 has been worked vertically, there are 29-29-29-29-29 stitches between every stitch with marker in it = 120-120-120-120-120 stitches on needle.

Repeat A.2 vertically – READ EYELET ROW above. Increase 1 stitch on each side of every corner stitch as before (= 8 stitches increased in total every other round) - NOTE: Between 1st and 2nd marker (= neck side) repeat A.2, 1-1-2-2-3 more times (then work this side in garter stitch), while on the other 3 sides repeat A.2 until finished measurements.

Continue like this until there are 240-264-288-304-336 stitches on needle (= 29-32-35-37-41 increases and 59-65-71-75-83 stitches between every stitch with marker) and piece measures approx. 40-44-48-51-56 cm / 15 3/4"-17 1/4"-19"-20"-22". Stop after 1 round purl. Knit 1 round with pattern and increases as before, and slip the middle 15-15-15-17-17 stitches between 1st and 2nd marker on a stitch holder for neck after they have been worked. Cut the yarn. Then work piece back and forth. Begin at the neck and work next round from wrong side.

Continue with GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, increases and new eyelet rows. AT THE SAME TIME bind off towards the neck as follows on every other row: Bind off at beginning of every row, 2 stitches 2 times and 1 stitch 2 times.
Continue increases until there are 309-333-357-387-419 stitches on needle (= 41-44-47-51-55 increases). There are now 83-89-95-103-111 stitches between every stitch with marker, 28-31-34-37-41 stitches on each shoulder). Now continue working between 3rd and 4th marker while binding off the remaining stitches as follow: Start from the wrong side at the shoulder, cast of all stitches towards 4th marker and cast of the stitch with 4th marker, knit all stitches until the 3rd marker, cast of the remaining stitches. Cut the yarn. Start from the right side, work 2 ridges back and forth over the 83-89-95-103-111 stitches, bind off. Insert a marker thread in each side, 17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8"-8 1/4'' down from shoulder. These show where sleeves are sewn in.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work as front piece until there are 240-264-288-304-336 stitches on needle (= 29-32-35-37-41 increases and 59-65-71-75-83 stitches between every marker thread). On back piece continue the same way until there are 288-312-336-368-392 stitches on needle (= 35-38-41-45-48 increases and 71-77-83-91-97 stitches between every marker thread). Stop after 1 round purl. Now knit 1 round with pattern and increases as before, and bind off middle 27-27-27-29-29 stitches between 1st and 2nd marker for neck. Work the rest of round and cut the yarn. Then work piece back and forth. Begin at the neck and work next row from wrong side. Continue with garter stitch, increases and eyelet rows as before. Continue increases until there are 309-333-357-387-419 stitches on needle (= 41-44-47-51-55 increases). There are now 83-89-95-103-111 stitches between every stitch with marker, 28-31-34-35-41 stitches on each shoulder). Now continue working between 3rd and 4th marker while binding off the remaining stitches as follow: Start from the wrong side at the shoulder, cast of all stitches towards 4th marker and cast of the stitch with 4th marker, knit all stitches until the 3rd marker, cast of the remaining stitches. Cut the yarn. Start from the right side, work 2 ridges back and forth over the 83-89-95-103-111 stitches, bind off. Insert a marker thread in each side, 17-18-19-20-21 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8"-8 1/4'' down from shoulder. These show where sleeves are sewn in.

SLEEVE:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 33-34-35-36-39 stitches on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work 2 ridges. Continue in garter stitch and with HOLES – see explanation above. When piece measures 3-4-4-2-4 cm / 1"-1½"-1½"-3/4"-1½", increase 1 stitch on each side – read INCREASE INFO. Repeat increase every 3-2½-2-2-1½ cm / 1"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-½" 9-10-11-12-12 more times = 53-56-59-62-65 stitches. Bind off when piece measures 32-31-30-28-26 cm / 12½"-12 1/4"-11 3/4"-11"-10 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders).

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves, down to markers on front/back piece. Sew underarm seams and side seams in one inside 1 edge stitch, stop when 9 cm / 3½'' remain = vents.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up approx. 66 to 74 sts (including stitches on stitch holder) on a short circular needle around the neck. Work 2 ridges in the round and bind off.

Me encantaría poder hacer esta prenda pero las instrucciones son extremadamente complejas y temo empezar para no poder terminar. No entiendo como se hace el primer cuadrado de partida con 8-8-8-8-8 yo entiendo que solo son 4 grupos de 8, no 5 y por otra parte la 5ª aguja se usa para tricotar los puntos de las otras 4 no?

DROPS Design 24.01.2019 kl. 15:21:

Hola Teresa. Todos los patrones de Drops están escritos para las tallas S-XXL. Cuando hay números seguidos como en tu caso ( 8-8-8-8-8 ) significa, que para la talla S hay que montar 8 puntos, para la talla M - 8 puntos etc. Después estos 8 puntos se reparten en 4 agujas para trabajar. Si solo hay un número es porque es el mismo para todas las tallas.

Jag har köpt garn till denna tröja. Förstår inte riktigt hur jag stickar den. Skall börja med strumpstickor. Sen när det gäller mönstret, skall man bara räkna detta från rätsidan?

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:41:

Hej Britt, du stickar framstycket från mitten och ut, dvs att du bara stickar från rätsidan. Du stickar och ökar enligt A.1. Diagram A.1 stickas 4 ggr på varje varv. Lycka till :)

Nataliya 26.04.2018 - 20:07:

Hvordan kan man sjekke ferdig mål når alt er på rundpinner i en slag av lomme? Man får ikke å strekke arbeidet for å måle. Det var en kommentar. Sporsmål: jeg er nesten ferdig med forstykket og forstår ikke hvordan å felle?Hva er delen som skal strikkes 2 pinner til? Hvorfor?

Marie Mamieflo 07.03.2018 - 17:09:

Merci beaucoup J'ai réessayé avec une autre laine et là ça va tout seul. Mais avec cette laine Brushed Alpaca Silk très fine et poilue, ce n'est vraiment pas facile . je vais m'y remettre à nouveau, mais...

Marie 06.03.2018 - 21:18:

Je n'y arrive pas . J'ai compris le montage, compris le diagramme mais cela fait quatre fois que je recommence et pour moi c'est impossible avec ces 4 aiguilles , pourtant je tricote beaucoup de chaussettes, robes pulls adultes enfants bébés mais là, j'abandonne , que faire de mes deux manches, de la laine ?

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 08:34:

Bonjour Marie, vous pouvez essayer avec la technique du magic loop, certaines la préfère aux 4 aiguilles. Le début peut paraître un peu complexe, mais ça vaut le coup de s'y attacher. Cette vidéo montre le début d'un carré d'un autre modèle et pourra peut-être vous aider à avancer. N'hésitez pas à vous adresser à votre magasin, il pourra fort probablement vous aider. Bon tricot!

Marie 02.03.2018 - 21:59:

J'ai tricoté les deux manches mais pour le devant je ne comprends pas cela ne se tricote pas en rond ? mais en aller et retour j'ai essayé deux fois, c'est difficile le démarrage. J'ai tout défait, j'ai besoin d'aide. Merci

DROPS Design 05.03.2018 kl. 08:15:

Bonjour Marie, le devant se tricote en rond à partir du milieu du motif, on va d'abord tricoter un carré (=4 x A.1) puis A.2. Quand le carré aura la bonne taille, on va glisser en attente les mailles de l'encolure et continuer en allers et retours à partir de l'encolure. Bon tricot!

Verstehe! Vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort! Der Pulli wird echt schön wrden. Stricke mit original Wolle in der gleichen Farbe. DANKE

Irina.P 05.02.2018 - 01:04:

Hallo liebe Federica, habe Vorder-und Rückenteil fertig gestrickt, nun sind die Ärmel dran, aber , ich verstehe nicht wie die Lochstreifen verlaufen sollen. Leider kann man es auch auf dem Foto nicht siehen, Sind es zwei Streifen insgesamt ?

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 10:36:

Liebe Irina, mitte unter der Ärmel wird man Maschen zunehmen - siehe ZUNAHMEINFO, damit es immer Löcher mitte unter der Ärmel gibt, wird man stricken wie unter LOCHSTREIFEN (Ärmel) beschrieben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Monica 22.12.2017 - 05:19:

Ho notato che sono state apportate delle correzioni al testo del pattern che io ho stampato tempo addietro. Mi potete indicare quali sono le modifiche?

DROPS Design 24.12.2017 kl. 11:26:

Buongiorno Monica. Le modifiche sono modifiche di terminologia e sono davvero molto limitate. Non sono state modificate misure o numero delle maglie. Buon lavoro!

Monica 22.12.2017 - 04:58:

Buongiorno nelle istituzioni per il davanti è indicato di ripetere A2 per 2 volte in totale nella parte fra il 1 e 2 marker, e poi continuare a legaccio, dalla foto sembrerebbe che A2 venga invece ripetuto una volta soltanto nella parte destinata allo scollo, vorrei un chiarimento, grazie

DROPS Design 24.12.2017 kl. 11:25:

Buongiorno Monica. Dalla fotografia sembra corretto come dice lei. Chiederemo una verifica alla casa madre. La ringraziamo per la segnalazione. Buon lavoro!
