INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

DECREASE TIP (for body):
Decrease as follows by both marker threads: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread: Knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Increase as follows mid under the sleeve – start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease 2 stitches in each transition between body and sleeves. Start 2 stitches before A.2/A.3, knit 2 together, work A.2/A.3, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

ELEVATION (for back of neck):
Cut the strand. Continue working as follows – starting after 16-17-19-21-23-25 stitches on the back piece (= mid back): Work stockinette stitch, A.2 and A.3 as before.
Insert 1 marker in the next stitch on the row (= mid back). Start from the right side and work 36-37-39-41-43-45 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and work 73-75-79-83-87-91 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and work 67-69-73-77-81-85 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and work 61-63-67-71-75-79 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and work to mid back. Cut the strand. The round now starts at the same place as before, i.e. 16-17-19-21-23-25 stitches towards the right (seen from the right side) at the marker mid back.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked bottom up. The body is worked in the round with circular needle and the sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles before they are worked together and you work the yoke in the round with circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 166-178-194-210-226-246 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Nepal. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above. Change to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/ US 9 and work stockinette stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 marker thread after 83-89-97-105-113-123 stitches (the marker threads mark the sides of the garment). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 11 cm / 4½'' decrease 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread (= 4 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 4 cm / 1½'' a total of 7 times = 138-150-166-182-198-218 stitches. When the piece measures 37-37-38-38-38-38 cm / 14½"-14½"-15"-15"-15"-15" bind off 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches on each side of each marker thread (= 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches in each side) = 61-67-73-81-87-95 stitches on the front/back piece. Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVES:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 44-44-48-48-52-52 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Nepal. Knit 1 round, then work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2). When the piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'' change to double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9. Knit 1 round and decrease 8-8-8-6-8-8 stitches evenly on round = 36-36-40-42-44-44 stitches. Work stockinette stitch. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve). When the piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' increase 2 stitches on each side of the marker thread – read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 4-3-2½-2-2-1½ cm / 1½"-1"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-½" a total of 8-11-12-13-13-15 times = 52-58-64-68-70-74 stitches. When the piece measures 40-39-38-37-36-34 cm / 15 3/4"-15 1/4"-15"-14½"-14 1/4"-13½" (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of longer yoke) bind off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches on each side of the marker thread) = 44-50-54-58-58-60 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work 1 more sleeve.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 as the body where you have bind off stitches for the armholes = 210-234-254-278-290-310 stitches.
Continue working as follows – start the round after 5-4-3-3-4-5 stitches on the back piece: Work * 51-59-67-75-79-85 stitches stockinette stitch, A.1 (= 12 stitches), 30-34-36-40-42-46 stitches stockinette stitch, A.1 over the next 12 stitches *, work from *-* a total of 2 times. When A.1 has been completed in height 1 time, there are 226-250-270-294-306-326 stitches on the needle.
Now continue working as follows: Work * 51-59-67-75-79-85 stitches stockinette stitch, A.2 (= 16 stitches), 30-34-36-40-42-46 stitches stockinette stitch, A.3 (= 16 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 2 times. Continue with pattern and decrease to RAGLAN – see description above.
Decrease every 4th round 6-6-6-6-7-7 times, then every 2nd round 8-10-11-13-13-15 times (= a total of 14-16-17-19-20-22 times).
After all the decreases, there are 114-122-134-142-146-150 stitches on the round. For a better fit, you can now work an ELEVATION in the back of the neck – see description above.
On the next round, decrease 4 stitches over each of A.2 and A.3 = 98-106-118-126-130-134 stitches.
The next round is worked as follows: Work * 33-35-39-43-47-51 stitches stockinette stitch and decrease 3-4-7-9-10-11 stitches evenly on round, knit the next 16-18-20-20-18-16 stitches together 2 and 2, *, work from *-* a total of 2 times = 76-80-84-88-92-96 stitches. Purl 1 round. The yoke measures approx. 21-23-24-26-28-30 cm / 8 1/4"-9"-9½"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4".

NECK:
Knit 1 round and increase 8 stitches evenly on round = 84-88-92-96-100-104 stitches. Change to short circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm / 1½'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Hej...jeg kan ikke få det til at passe med masker hvis der skal være 5 på bærestykket og 7 på ærmer...kan få til at passe med 4 på bærestykke og 8 på ærmer. Hvordan kan jeg få det til at passe...hvis jeg forstår opskrift rigtigt skal omgangen startes efter 4 masker, derefter strikkes 59 masker, tilbage på min pind er nu 4 masker?.. Håber i kan afhjælpe mit problem så jeg kan komme videre ...

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 10:50:

Hei Helle. I følge oppskriften skal første omgang av mønster A.1 gå over 4 masker på for-og bakstykket, og 8 masker på ermene, i størrelse M og XXL, så det stemmer. God fornøyelse

Claudia 27.05.2018 - 09:27:

Hallo Komme nicht so richtig weiter.Habe die zwei Ärmel fertig und mit der Passe nicht so.Können Sie mir dabei helfen.Komme bei der Passe nicht weiter.Danke an Sie

DROPS Design 28.05.2018 kl. 09:26:

Liebe Claudia, die beide Ärmel mit dem Rumpfteil auf eine Nadel nehmen, und dann wie beschrieben Zopf und Raglanabnahmen stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Claudia Wächtler 08.04.2018 - 09:07:

Hallo Wie nimmt man die Maschen nach 37 cm ab? Ist dann die Masche die ja der Makierungsfaden auch abgekettet?Danke für die Hilfe Claudia

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 10:16:

Liebe Frau Wächtler, die 8 Maschen auf beiden Seiten (= 4 M vor der Markierungsfaden + 4 M nach der Markierungsfaden) werden abgekettet = es sind jetzt 61-67 M je für Rücken- und Vorderteil. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Agnete Årikstad Eidet 03.04.2018 - 22:49:

Hei, når jeg skal strikke sammen arm og bol, skal det være seks masker fra arm og seks masker fra bol som skal bli de tolv maskene med mønster i overgangen? Jeg får ikke det til å gå opp... da blir det for mange masker på ermene og for få på bolen mellom mønster.

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 13:50:

Hei Agnete. Mønsteret er ikke helt på midten av overgangen mellom bol og erme. De 12 maskene i A.1 er fordelt slik: Det er 5 masker fra bolen og 7 masker fra ermet. Om du ser nøye på bildet av gensern, kan du se at mønsteret er litt lenger ut på ermet. God fornøyelse

Beste mensen, dit is mijn eerste trui die ik brei (na sjaals en mutsen) Kan je de mouwen ook op een rondbreinaald breien ipv naalden zonder knop? En als dat kan, is 40 cm dan een handige lengte? Daarbij vroeg ik me dan af of je een 40 cm rondbreinaald ook kan gebruiken voor de hals of beter andere lengtes voor mouwen en hals? Alvast bedankt voor uw antwoord. MVG, Yvonne

DROPS Design 15.11.2017 kl. 10:31:

Hoi Yvonne, Jazeker, de mouwen kun je prima op een rondbreinaald breien, en 40 cm is daar wel geschikt voor. Mocht de draad iets te lang zijn voor het aantal steken, dan kun je de 'magic loop' techniek toepassen. Bekijk deze video.

Pauline Sutcliffe 09.08.2017 - 08:56:

"Knit the next 20 stitches together 2 and 2" - this is at the end of the yoke section. Could you clarify this? Should I knit 2 tog, knit 2 for 20 stitches?

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 09:20:

Dear Mrs Sutcliffe, knit 2 tog over the next 20 sts = 10 sts dec (= repeat K2 tog a total of 10 times). Happy knitting!
