NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.

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

Because of the weight of the yarn the part in garter stitch will be longer when worn. Length measurements on chart are shorter than the finished garment when worn. Measure the pieces flat.

Worked back and forth on circular needle and sewn together when finished. Stitches for sleeves are picked up in armhole on body and sleeves are worked top down.

Work piece back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 66-70-78-86-94-98 stitches on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with 1 strand of each color (= 4 strands). Purl 1 row from wrong side, then work as follows from right side: 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 2/purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, knit 2 and 2 stitches in garter stitch. Continue like this until piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' - READ MEASURING TIP! Knit 1 row over all stitches while decreasing 10-10-14-16-18-16 stitches evenly = 56-60-64-70-76-82 stitches. Continue in garter stitch over all stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 43-44-45-46-47-48 cm / 17''-17¼''-17¾''-18''-18½''-19'', bind off 1 stitch in each side for armholes = 54-58-62-68-74-80 stitches. When piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'', bind off the middle 20-20-20-22-22-22 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then decrease 1 stitch on next row from neck =16-18-20-22-25-28 stitches for shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''. Work the other shoulder the same way.
Cast on and work the same way as back piece until piece measures 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm / 20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8'' = 54-58-62-68-74-80 stitches on needle. Now slip the middle 14-14-14-16-16-16 stitches on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then bind off for neck on every row from neck as follows: bind off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 16-18-20-22-25-28 stitches remain for shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''. Work the other shoulder the same way.

Sew the shoulder seams.

Pick up stitches along the armhole at the top of jumper and work sleeve back and forth on circular needle, top down.

Begin where 1 stitch was bind off for armhole on front piece, and pick up 38-40-42-44-46-48 stitches from right side with 1 yarn of each color ( = 4 strands) on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11. Pick up stitches along armhole on front piece and down along armhole on back piece where 1 stitch was bind off for armhole. Work in garter stitch back and forth. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', decrease 1 stitch in each side of piece. Decrease every 5-5-4-4-3-3 cm / 2"-2"-1½"-1½"-1"-1'' 7-7-8-8-9-9 times in total = 24-26-26-28-28-30 stitches. Continue until piece measures 37-36-35-33-32-30 cm / 14½"-14 1/4"-13 3/4"-13"-12½"-11 3/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders) - REMEMBER MEASURING TIP.
Knit 1 row over all stitches while increasing 2-4-4-6-6-8 stitches evenly = 26-30-30-34-34-38 stitches. Continue in rib as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2/purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 1 stitch remain, work 1 edge stitch. When piece measures 43-42-41-39-38-36 cm / 17"-16½"-16"-15 1/4"-15"-14 1/4" (rib measures 6 cm / 2 3/8''), bind off by knitting.

Work right sleeve the same way.

Sew underarm seams and side seams in one until 12 cm / 4¾'' remain at the bottom of body = vent. Repeat in the other side.

Worked in the round on circular needle. Pick up approx. 72-84 stitches (including stitches on stitch holder) on a short circular needle size 8 mm / US 11. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH – see explanation above, then work rib knit 2/purl 2. Continue rib until piece measures 20 cm / 8'', bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Det står man kan bruke c+c, noen forslag? Hvor mye garn må man regne med i str S? ☺

Hei Janie. Ja, du kan bruke 2 tråder fra garngruppe C. Ta en titt over våre garn som tilhører garngruppe C. Deretter kan du bruke vår garn konverter som du finner til høyer/eller under bildet på den modellen du ønsker å strikke. Les informasjonen og gjør dine valg i vinduet som kommer opp. God Fornøyelse!

Bella 17.11.2017 - 16:37:

Hej! Om man gör denna i garngrupp E, hur mycket garn behöver man?

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 08:24:

Hei Bella. Det kommer an på hvilken størrelse du skal strikke. Her er en link hvordan du selv kan regne ut garnmengde: Omregn garnmengde fra en kvalitet til en annen. God Fornøyelse!

Therese Öberg 22.09.2017 - 11:16:

Hej! Om jag vill sticka denna i endast en tråd, vilket garn skulle isf passa?

DROPS Design 22.09.2017 kl. 11:25:

Hej, Då skall du välja DROPS Eskimo eller DROPS Andes som tillhör garngrupp E.

Sara 25.07.2017 - 23:10:

Efter första aviga varvet står att man ska sticka resår (2rm/2am) med två räta maskor i början och slutet på varvet. Sen står "fortsätt så" i 8 cm. Fortsätt hur?? Med två kantmaskor i rätstickning eller med aviga maskor över aviga även i kanterna? Tack på förhand.

DROPS Design 26.07.2017 kl. 14:12:

Hej! Här menas att du ska sticka dessa två maskor i rätstickning på varje varv, dvs. maskorna stickas räta på varje varv.

Hallo, wie ist die Beschaffenheit des Garnes, bin sehr empfindlich, wenn es auch nur minimal am Hals kratzt.

DROPS Design 24.07.2017 kl. 08:59:

Liebe Frau Winter, am besten besprechen Sie mit Ihrem DROPS Laden, sie werden Ihnen ganz gerne hilfen, auch telefonish oder per mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mona 17.07.2017 - 10:44:

Hallo Liebes Drops Team. Würde gerne den Pullover nacharbeiten. Statt 4x Garnstärke A brauche ich dann nur 2x Garnstärke E? hab ich das so Richtig verstanden? Gruß Mona

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 12:13:

Liebe Mona, ja genau, vergessen Sie aber nicht, daß Garne mit unterschiedlichen Strukturen auch unterschiedlich aussehen. Hier können Sie mehr lesen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
