TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armhole, then work front and back piece separately.

Cast on 480-528-576-624-720-768 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. Knit 1 round, then work as follows: * Knit 1, purl 3 *, repeat from *-*. Continue rib like this. When piece measures 2 cm, decrease all 3 purl stitches to 2 purl stitches by purling 2 together = 360-396-432-468-540-576 stitches. When piece measures 3 cm, decrease every other 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 300-330-360-390-450-480 stitches. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease the remaining 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 240-264-288-312-360-384 stitches. When rib measures 6 cm, switch to circular needle size 3 mm, knit 1 round then work as follows: Work A.1 over all stitches (= 20-22-24-26-30-32 repetitions of A.1). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 200-220-240-260-300-320 stitches on round. Insert 2 marker threads in piece; 1 at the beginning of round and 1 after 100-110-120-130-150-160 stitches = sides.

Work as follows: Stocking stitch over the first 110-120-130-140-160-170 stitches, A.2 over the next 80-90-100-110-130-140 stitches (= A.2 is directly above 8-9-10-11-13-14 repetitions of A.1), stocking stitch over the last 10 stitches. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 12 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of markers in the side (= 4 stitches decreased) - READ DECREASE TIP BODY! Decrease every 6-6-7-7-7-7 cm 5 times in total = 180-200-220-240-280-300 stitches. When piece measures approx. 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm and 3 rounds remain before an entire repetition of A.2 work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, over 12-12-14-14-16-18 stitches in each side (= 6-6-7-7-8-9 stitches on each side of each marker), continue the remaining stitches as before. NOTE: Begin with purl 1 round over the 12-12-14-14-16-18 stitches in each side, knit 1 round over the 12-12-14-14-16-18 stitches in each side - 1 round remains in A.2. Work this round as follows: Cast off the first 3-3-4-4-5-7 stitches, purl 3, work the next 78-88-96-106-122-130 stitches as before, purl 3, cast off the next 6-6-8-8-10-14 stitches, purl 3, work the next 78-88-96-106-124-130 stitches, purl 3, cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5-7 stitches. NOW FINISH EACH PART SEPARATELY:

BACK PIECE:
Slip the first 84-94-102-112-130-136 stitches on a stitch holder, now work over the last 84-94-102-112-130-136 stitches on needle (= the part where A.2 is) – begin from right side: Continue with GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - over 3 stitches in each side, 9-9-18-18-27-25 stitches in stocking stitch, pattern A.2 as before over the next 60-70-60-70-70-80 stitches ( = 6-7-6-7-7-8 repetitions), 9-9-18-18-27-25 stitches in stocking stitch, 3 stitches in garter stitch. AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1 stitch inside 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side - READ DECREASE TIP ARMHOLE. Decrease every 6th row 4-0-0-0-0-0 times, every 4th row 2-5-9-6-6-2 times, then every other row 0-4-4-10-17-23 times = 72-76-76-80-84-86 stitches. When A.2 has been worked 2-2-3-3-4-4 times vertically after division for armholes, work 2 rows in stocking stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side, then work 3 ridges over all stitches. Cast off knitting from right side.

FRONT PIECE:
Slip the 84-94-102-112-130-136 stitches from stitch holder back on needle. Continue with stocking stitch and 3 stitches in garter stitch, decrease the same way as on back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when 14-14-28-28-42-42 rows in stocking stitch have been worked, work A.2 over the middle 60-70-60-70-70-80 stitches, continue the same remaining stitches as before, continue with decreases in the sides. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 2 rows in stocking stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side, then work 3 ridges over all stitches (same number of rows has been worked on back piece and front piece). After all decreases are done, 72-76-76-80-84-86 stitches remain on needle.

On next row slip the first 17-17-17-18-19-19 stitches on a stitch holder (work them first), cast off the next 38-42-42-44-46-48 stitches, continue to work over the last 17-17-17-18-19-19 stitches on needle. Work in garter stitch over these stitch until strap measures approx. 12-14-8-12-6-8 cm, try the top on and adjust the length if needed. Cast off. Slip the first 17-17-17-18-19-19 stitches back on needle, work the same way.

Purl 1 row from wrong side, then work as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 3 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain and finish with knit 1 and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this. When piece measures 2 cm, decrease all 3 purl stitches to 2 purl stitches by purling 2 together from right side = 133-151-169-187-205-223 stitches. When piece measures 3 cm, decrease every other 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 112-127-142-157-172-187 stitches. When piece measures 4 cm, decrease the remaining 2 purl stitches to 1 purl stitch = 91-103-115-127-139-151 stitches. When rib measures 6 cm, switch to circular needle size 3 mm, purl 1 row from wrong side, then work as follows from right side: 3 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 84-96-108-120-132-144 stitches (= 7-8-9-10-11-12 repetitions of A.1), knit 1 and finish with 3 stitches in garter stitch. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 77-87-97-107-117-127 stitches on row.

Gaillet Léa 28.04.2019 - 19:56:

Bonjour dois je tricoter la Note: commencer par 1 tour envers au dessus des 12 maille de chaque côté ect... À partir du point mousse ou après ? Et c'est bien sûr les 3 dernier rang de A2.? Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 10:36:

Bonjour Mme Gaillet, quand vous commencez le 1er des 3 derniers tours de A.2, tricotez les 12 m de chaque côté (= 6 m avant + 6 m après chaque marqueur) à l'envers, et les autres mailles comme dans A.2, au tour suivant, tricotez ces 12 mailles à l'endroit (les autres comme le tour suivant de A.2) et au dernier tour de A.2, tricotez ces 12 m ainsi: 3 m env, rabattez 6 m (= 3 m de chaque côté du marqueur), 3 m env (et les autres mailles comme le dernier tour de A.2). Bon tricot!

Renée Lamonde 17.04.2019 - 16:52:

Bonjour, J'essai de vous faire parvenir une question sur ce tricot et cela n'arrête pas de me dire que j'ai un lien ou un mot interdit alors que ce n'est pas le cas. Je comprend pas pourquoi. Merci Renée

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 15:42:

Bonjour Mme Lamonde, essayez de reformuler votre question, et, si possible, indiquez-nous via notre Facebook les mots que vous avez essayé d'écrire pour que nous puissions ajustez si besoin. Pour toute assistance, rappelez-vous que votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Wenche 30.03.2019 - 21:20:

Skal man felle etter omgang 6 der diagrammet minker med 2 masker i A1? Får ikke mønsteret til å stemme?

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 15:35:

Hej Wenche, du feller automatisk på omgang 6 når du følger diagrammet. Sæt gerne et mærke imellem hver rapport (dvs for hver 12 maske), da vil du let kunne se at efter fellingen, har du kun 10 masker imellem mærkerne. God fornøjelse!

Maly 15.02.2019 - 23:16:

Bonjour, Lorsque l’on tricote le dos et le devant séparément, à la fin, lorsque l’on a tricoté A2 2 fois en hauteur après la division des emmanchures, tricoter 2 rangs de jersey avec 3 mailles au point mousse de chaque côté, et 3 côtes mousse sur toutes les mailles. Je comprends pas comment faire les côtes mousse, pouvez-vous m’expliquer ? Merci d’avance

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 09:05:

Bonjour Maly, quand on a terminé de tricoter A.2, on tricote d'abord 2 rangs jersey avec 3 m point mousse de chaque côté, puis 3 côtes mousse (= 6 rangs endroit) sur toutes les mailles. Bon tricot!

Jutta 11.05.2018 - 12:01:

Das gern You 6 hat viel weniger Lauflänge und trotzdem Garngruppe A mit der gleichen Maschenprobe. Kann ich mich dann bei dieser Anleitung an die angegebene Maschenzahl halten?

DROPS Design 11.05.2018 kl. 13:31:

Liebe Jutta, Bei jeder Qualität wird gewählt, die Maschenprobe, um das beste Ergebnis zu bekommen. Solange Sie die gleiche Maschenprobe erreichen, können Sie ein anderes Garn gleicher Gruppe benutze. Bitte beachten Sie, dass Garne mit unterschiedlichen Strukturen auch unterschiedlich aussehen. Weitere Ausküfnte und Hilfe bekommen Sie von Ihrem DROPS Laden (auch telefonisch oder per mail). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jutta 11.05.2018 - 10:44:
