Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

For that purpose, each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you, which you will find at the bottom of the page.

We have also step-by-step lessons to help you understand some of the techniques we use in our patterns. You'll find them here!

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American 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 with 1 strand of each colour (= 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 - 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 KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 43-44-45-46-47-48 cm, cast 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, cast 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. Cast off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. 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 = 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 cast off for neck on every row from neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 16-18-20-22-25-28 stitches remain for shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. 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 cast off for armhole on front piece, and pick up 38-40-42-44-46-48 stitches from right side with 1 yarn of each colour ( = 4 strands) on circular needle size 8 mm. Pick up stitches along armhole on front piece and down along armhole on back piece where 1 stitch was cast off for armhole. Work in garter stitch back and forth. When piece measures 3 cm, decrease 1 stitch in each side of piece. Decrease every 5-5-4-4-3-3 cm 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 (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 (rib measures 6 cm), cast off by knitting.

Work right sleeve the same way. 

Sew underarm seams and side seams in one until 12 cm 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. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH – see explanation above, then work rib knit 2/purl 2. Continue rib until piece measures 20 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.
