INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 2 stitches by each marker as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these stitches), knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The jumper is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the armholes, then the front and back pieces are worked back and forth separately. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

BODY:
Cast on 138-146-158-170-178-190 stitches with circular needle size 9 and 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand Melody. Work as follows: Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round, knit 25-27-30-31-33-36 stitches, A.1 (= 24-24-24-30-30-30 stitches), knit 25-27-30-31-33-36 stitches, insert 1 marker (= front piece), knit 64-68-74-78-82-88 stitches (= back piece). Continue pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 8 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of each marker – read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 14-12-8-7-7-5 cm a total of 2-3-4-5-5-7 times = 130-134-142-150-158-162 stitches. When the piece measures 34-35-36-37-38-39 cm, adjust so that the next round is round 6 or 8 of A.1, cast off stitches for armhole as follows: Cast off the first 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches, knit and work A.1 as before until there are 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches left before the marker, cast off the next 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches, knit until there are 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches left before the marker, cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches. Cut the strand.

FRONT PIECE:
The piece is now worked back and forth. Now divide the front piece for the neck as follows:

LEFT SHOULDER:
= 32-33-34-37-38-39 stitches. Now work from the side towards mid front from the right side as follows: 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches stocking stitch and A.2 over the first 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches of A.1 (adjust the cable so that there are 13-13-13-15-15-15 rows of stocking stitch between the cable in A.1 and the cable in A.2), turn the piece. Continue the pattern back and forth in this way until the piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from where you cast off for the armhole (the piece has a total length of 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm). On the next row from the right side cast off the first 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches for the shoulder = 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches. Work shawl collar as follows: Continue with A.2 over the remaining stitches until the shawl collar measures 6 cm. Cast off.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
= 32-33-34-37-38-39 stitches. Now work from mid front towards the side from the right side as follows: A.3 over the 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches of A.1 (adjust the cable so that there are 13-13-13-15-15-15 rows of stocking stitch between the cable in A.1 and cable in A.3) and 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches stocking stitch, turn the piece. Continue the pattern back and forth in this way until the piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from where you cast off for the armhole, adjust to match the left shoulder. On the next row from the wrong side, cast off the first 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches for the shoulder = 12-12-12-15-15-15 stitches. Work shawl collar as follows: Continue with A.3 over the remaining stitches until the shawl collar measures 6 cm. Cast off.

BACK PIECE:
= 54-56-58-60-62-64 stitches. Work stocking stitch until the piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm from where you cast off for the armholes. On the next row from the right side, cast off the middle 14-14-14-16-16-16 stitches for the neck (= 20-21-22-22-23-24 stitches left on each shoulder). Now finish each shoulder separately. Work until the piece measures 20-21-22-23-24-25 cm from where you cast off for the armholes, adjust to match the front pieces, cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 32-32-34-34-36-38 stitches with double pointed needles size 9 mm and 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand Melody. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid under the sleeve. Knit. When the piece measures 8 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker. Increase in this way every 10-8-7-6-6-6 cm a total of 4-5-5-6-6-6 times = 40-42-44-46-48-50 stitches. When sleeve measures 42-42-41-41-40-40 cm, divide the piece at the marker (= mid under the sleeve) and work back and forth from here. Cast off when the piece measures 45 cm (same length in all sizes because of the shoulder width). Work another sleeve.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams – make sure the seam is not tight. Sew the shawl collar together mid back with grafting stitches and sew it to the neckline at the back of the neck – the seam should turn in towards the wrong side. Sew in the sleeves i.e. sew the cast-off edge from sleeve to the armhole. The opening on the underside of sleeve should be sewn to the stitches that where cast off for armhole on the body.

Dear Team, I knitted the model London Fog out of Alpacka Silk and was really happy about it. Unluckily only until I did the handwash which is requested on the label. My washing maschine has a special wool handwash program and still the pullover shrank so much that it is impossible to wear it. As a big fan of your products I`m really disappointed.especially because I have a second one out of the same Alpaka silk Wool. How should I clean it? Kind regards Monika

DROPS Design 25.11.2018 kl. 11:21:

Dear Monika, we are very sorry to hear that your sweater shrunk. We always advice that for yarn that is not superwash treated , should always be handwashed in cold 8or lukewarm at the most) water. Even the wool setting of some washing machines is too abrasive for those extra soft yarns loke the alpaca silk.

Dear Monika, we are so sorry, Brushed Alpaca Silk should be only handwashed - see label and care tab in the shadecard and general instructions about yarn care there. Maybe your DROPS store will have any tipp for you? Do not hesitate to contact them even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Har lige strikket modellen i str. m - har KUN brugt 225 g, i opskriften står der 400 g

Bij het telpatroon staat bij het lege hokje maat ook bij het * dat recht aan de goede kant en averecht aan de verkeerde kant gebreid moet worden. Bij het* moet dat andersom zijn.

DROPS Design 19.11.2017 kl. 20:41:

Hallo Henny, Het is aangepast. Dankjewel voor het doorgeven!

Davesne 18.10.2017 - 14:31:

Bonjour , j'ai fait l'échantillon avec la laine brushed alpaca silk en double et en respectant les mailles indiquées et la mesure cela fait un tricot extrêmement lache et transparent ,ce n'est pas l'impression que j'ai en voyant la photo sur le site ! N'y a t'il aucune erreur ? Ou bien le tricot se tasse t'il un peu une fois fini ?

DROPS Design 19.10.2017 kl. 17:01:

Bonjour Madame Davesne, c'est l'effet souhaité avec 2 fils DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk avec l'échantillon indiqué. Bon tricot!

Sandra 19.07.2017 - 21:26:

When I look at the project posted I see that the bottom of the sweater appears fitted and in the photo of the model it the bottom looks flared. The diagram looks flared as well, is it a flared bottom?

DROPS Design 20.07.2017 kl. 10:00:

Dear Sandra, the sweater has a A-line, you will dec on each side a total of 2-7 times so that there are then less sts when you reach armholes than when you cast on. Happy knitting!

Sandra 18.07.2017 - 16:37:

I would like to knit this in a worsted weight yarn would that work? Thank you!

DROPS Design 19.07.2017 kl. 08:27:

Dear Sandra, this pattern is worked with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk (= worsted weight yarn, 10 ply, approx. 153 yds/0.9 oz) or 1 strand Melody (12 ply, chunky yarn). You will have to make a swatch and check if you get correct tension and nice fabric. Happy knitting!

Hallo Wenn ich das alternativgarn Melodie nehmen möchte, bleibt es dann auch bei der Nadel 9 . Natürlich im Bezug auf die Maschenprobe. Wegen der Wollmenge. Lg Anja

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 08:44:

Liebe Frau Rolf, mit Melody sollen Sie auch die selbe Maschenprobe haben, dh 10 M x 14 R glatt gestrickt = 10 x 10 cm, Wollmenge für diese Alternative finden Sie unter "Materials" für Ihre Größe. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Roswitha 11.07.2017 - 16:10:

Hallo, vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort! Ich habe es leider noch nicht verstanden. Der Ärmel wird ohne Naht rund gestrickt. Wird die Seitennaht an die abgeketteten Maschen genäht? Soll ich den Ärmel auf den letzten drei Zentimetern dann besser offen stricken auf der Rundnadel anstelle des Nadelspiels? Nochmals danke!

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 10:11:

Liebe Roswitha, Anleitung wurde angepasst, schauen Sie mal bitte unter ÂRMEL. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Roswitha 11.07.2017 - 12:59:

Hallo, eine Frage zum Ärmel: Der Ärmel hat oben 40 M (S) = 40 cm. Der Armausschnitt hat in der Höhe 20 cm. Das bedeutet, ich muss nun 40 cm auf 46 cm nähen. Die 46 cm setzen sich aus 2 x 20 cm Höhe des Armausschnittes plus die 6 abgeketteten Maschen unter dem Arm zusammen. Wie ist das zu bewerkstelligen? Danke im voraus. Gruß Roswitha

DROPS Design 11.07.2017 kl. 15:52:

Liebe Roswitha, die 40 cm der Ärmel sollen Sie im Armausschnitt (= 2 x 20 cm) zusammennähen - die letzten cm ganz oben an der Ärmel werden an den abgeketteten Maschen (Vorder- bzw Rückenteil) zusammengenäht. Viel Spaß beim fertigstellen!
