Because texture of the garment the jumper will be approx. 6-8 cm / 2½"-3'' longer than measurements in chart when worn. Sleeve length will be approx. 3-5 cm / 1"-2'' longer.

----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Piece is worked back and forth in parts and sewn together when finished. Work entire garment in 1 strand Alpaca and 2 strands Kid-Silk (= 3 strands).

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on somewhat loosely 63-67-71-77-83-91 stitches on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 with 1 strand navy blue Alpaca + 2 strand dark purple Kid-Silk (= 3 strands). Purl 1 row (= wrong side).
Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, knit 1 and finish with 3 stitches in garter stitch. Work back from wrong side with garter stitch over garter stitch, purl over purl, knit over knit. Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, ENGLISH RIB - see explanation above, until 3 stitches remain on needle and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue with English rib and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. Read MEASURING TIP and REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'', insert 1 marker in each side, these marks vents in the sides. When piece measures 17 cm / 6 3/4'', work English rib with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side.
When piece measures 18-18-18-20-20-20 cm / 7"-7"-7"-8"-8"-8", work STRIPES BODY - see explanation above.
When piece measures 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾'', bind off 2 stitches at beginning of the 2 next rows for armholes = 59-63-67-73-79-87 stitches. Continue with English rib, stripes and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 46-48-48-50-50-52 cm / 18"-19"-19"-19 3/4"-19 3/4"-20½", work 2 ridges over the middle 7 stitches on needle (yarn overs do not count as stitches and are knitted together with every slipped stitch on first row, work the other stitches as before). After the 2 ridges, work next row as follows from right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 25-27-29-32-35-39 stitches in English rib, knit 5, pass 4th stitch worked over 5th stitch worked (= 1 stitch bind off mid front), knit 2, 25-27-29-32-35-39 stitches in English rib and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

Continue back and forth over the remaining 29-31-33-36-39-43 stitches in English rib, stripes, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards armhole and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards mid front.
When 5 rows have been worked after division and next row is from right side, decrease for V-neck towards mid front – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th row 2-2-3-3-4-4 times in total and then every 8th row 3 times in total in all sizes = 24-26-27-30-32-36 stitches remain on needle. Continue to work until piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm / 25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''.

Then work over stitches in right side of piece the same way as in left side but reversed. I.e. work first row from wrong side as follows: Slip stitch bind off mid front on left needle and knit this stitch together with next stitch on left needle (this is done to avoid a visible mark at the bottom of V-neck), knit 2, 25-27-29-32-35-39 stitches in English rib and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth over the 29-31-33-36-39-43 stitches in English rib, stripes, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards armhole and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards mid front. When 5 rows have been worked after division and next row is from right side, decrease for V-neck towards mid front – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th row 2-2-3-3-4-4 times in total and then every 8th row 3 times in total in all sizes = 24-26-27-30-32-36 stitches remain on needle.

Work back from wrong side with garter stitch over garter stitch, purl over purl, knit over knit. Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, English rib, until 3 stitches remain on needle and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue with English rib and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 20 cm / 8'', insert 1 marker in each side, these marks vents in the sides (back piece is 4 cm / 1½'' longer than front piece). When piece measures 21 cm / 8 1/4'', work English rib with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 22-22-22-24-24-24 cm / 8 1/4"-8 1/4"-8 1/4"-9"-9"-9", work STRIPES BODY - see explanation above - NOTE: Make sure to work the same no of rows in every stripe as on front piece.
When piece measures 49-50-51-52-53-54 cm / 19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21''-21¼'', bind off 2 stitches at beginning of the 2 next rows for armholes = 59-63-67-73-79-87 stitches.

Continue to work until piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾''.

When piece measures 8-8-9-9-9-7 cm / 3"-3"-3½"-3½"--3½"-2 3/4", increase 1 stitch in each side - READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 stitches increased). Increase like this every 4-4-3-3-2½-2½ cm / 1½-"1½"-1"-1"-3/4"-3/4" 9-9-11-11-12-12 times in total = 41-43-47-49-51-53 stitches. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-16-16-14-14-12 cm / 6 1/4"-6 1/4"-6 1/4"-5½"-5½"-4 3/4", work STRIPES SLEEVE - see explanation above.

Hallo, Ich habe Kleidergröße 54, wie kann ich ausrechnen wieviel Maschen ich für diesen Pullover benötige. Und dann natürlich, wieviel Wolle benötige ich? Vorab vielen Dank für die Antwort! Liebe Grüße Brigitte

Liebe Frau Milicevic, Leider können wir keine individuellen Umrechnungen vornehmen, wenden Sie sich mit diesem Wunsch bitte an den Laden, in dem Sie die Wolle kaufen. Vielen Dank für Ihr Verständnis.

Bonjour, J'ai réalisé ce modèle comme indiqué : il est absolument magnifique ! Beau, chaud, agréable à porter et très doux. Merci ! Je suis très contente. Les modèles sont très beaux et les explications parfaitement précises. Je suis très heureuse de tout ce que vous proposez : modèles et laines. Merci Drops et la boutique Kalidou.

Sue 19.10.2017 - 15:09:

I would love to change two of the colours in this pattern. Keeping all the Blue colours, what would be good alternatives for the Purple Kid-silk, and the Olive Alpaca? Look forward to reading your suggestions.

DROPS Design 19.10.2017 kl. 16:55:

Dear Sue, for any help choosing a colour you are welcome to contact your DROPS Store. Happy knitting!

Vorberger 02.10.2017 - 01:11:

Kann ich diesen Pullover auch mit Angorawolle Stricken? Kann ich jede Anleitung rein theoretisch auch in Angorawolle herstellen? Mfg

DROPS Design 02.10.2017 kl. 10:53:

Liebe Frau Vorberger, für weitere persönnliche Hilfe wird Ihnen Ihr DROPS Laden weiter helfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeg ønsker å strikke modell 180-34 i enfarget garn. Hvor mye garn trenger jeg da?

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 14:28:

Hei Berit. Det har vi desverre ikke noe oversikt over. Genseren er strikket i 2 forskjellige garn der det brukes 1 tråd av Aplaca og 2 tråder av Kid-Silk, og der kvalitetene har ulik løpelengde. Ta en titt på andre lignende modeller vi har i Alpaca og Kid-Silk, se på målskissene og se om du finner en som er lik i størrelsen til 180-34, og ut ifra det kan du få en viss formening om garnmengde. Jeg vil tippe på 350 g Alpaca (1 tråd) og 350 gram Kid-Silk (2 tråder) i str M /L. God Fornøyelse!

Vanessa 11.07.2017 - 15:41:

Ginge statt A+A+A auch A+C (d.h. z.B. Brushed Alpaka Silk statt Kid Silk)?

DROPS Design 11.07.2017 kl. 15:56:

Liebe Vanessa, ja gerne können Sie auch so stricken - lesen Sie mehr über Ersatzgarne hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mona 01.07.2017 - 19:50:

Fulvia 15.06.2017 - 21:30:
