Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.9. Choose diagram for your size.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches to be increased over (e.g. 26 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 8) = 3.25.
In this example, increase after approx. every 3rd stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next row work the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for the armholes):
All increases are made from the right side!
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next row (wrong side) purl the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

INCREASE TIP-3 (for sides of body):
Start 4 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, work 1 stitch stockinette stitch, work A.8 (= 6 stitches, the marker thread sits in the middle of A.8), work 1 stitch stockinette stitch, make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 5 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, work A.8 (= 6 stitches, the marker thread sits in the middle of A.8), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The front and back pieces are worked separately back and forth with circular needle and top down. When the increases to armholes have been completed, the pieces are worked together and the body is worked in the round with circular needle to finished length.
The sleeves are worked back and forth with short circular needle, top down until the sleeve cap has been completed, then are worked in the round with short circular needle to finished length, but change to double pointed needles when you have decreased enough stitches.

LEFT SHOULDER FRONT (when the garment is worn):
Cast on 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Flora. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the right side where you, at the same time, increase 8 stitches in all sizes evenly on row – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 34-34-36-36-38-38 stitches. Work back from the wrong side with knit 3 edge stitches and purl 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.1 (= 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the side. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When you have worked 10 rows in A.1 cast on new stitches to neck at the end of each row from the wrong side as shown in A.1, i.e. cast on 1 stitch 3 times and 2 stitches 3 times = 43-43-45-45-47-47 stitches. When A.1 has been completed, cast on 34 new stitches to neck at the end of the last row from the wrong side = 77-77-79-79-81-81 stitches. The piece measures approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' from the cast-on edge. Lay the piece to one side and work right shoulder front as described below.

RIGHT SHOULDER FRONT (when the garment is worn):
Cast on 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the right side and, at the same time, increase 8 stitches in all sizes evenly on row = 34-34-36-36-38-38 stitches. Work back from the wrong side with purl 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.2 (= 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way. When you have worked 11 rows in A.2 cast on new stitches to neck at the end of each row from the right side as shown in A.2, i.e. cast on 1 stitch 3 times and 2 stitches 3 times = 43-43-45-45-47-47 stitches. When A.2 has been completed, work the right and left shoulders together to the front piece as described below.

FRONT PIECE:
Place the stitches from the two shoulders on the same circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 (the 34 stitches cast on to neck on left shoulder front = mid front) = 120-120-124-124-128-128 stitches.
The first row is worked as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.3 (= 38-38-40-40-42-42 stitches), work A.4 (= 38 stitches), work A.5 (= 38-38-40-40-42-42 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way and increase to armhole as described below.
ARMHOLE:
When the piece measures 17-15-16-14-13-13 cm / 6 3/4"-6"-6 1/4"-5½"-5"-5"'' increase 1 stitch in each side to armhole – read INCREASE TIP-2, i.e. increase from the right side after 3 edge stitches in garter stitch at the beginning of the row and before 3 edge stitches in garter stitch at the end of the row. Increase in this way every 2nd row a total of 3-7-7-13-17-21 times, then cast on 3-4-6-6-8-10 new stitches at the end of the next two rows = 132-142-150-162-178-190 stitches and the piece measures approx. 19-20-21-22-24-26 cm / 7½"-8"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9½"-10 1/4'' from the shoulder down. Lay the piece to one side and work right shoulder back as described below.

RIGHT SHOULDER BACK (when the garment is worn):
Cast on 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the right side and, at the same time, increase 8 stitches in all sizes evenly on row = 34-34-36-36-38-38 stitches. Work back from the wrong side with knit 3 edge stitches and purl 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.6 (= 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch towards the side. Continue the pattern in this way. When you have worked 2 rows in A.6 cast on 2 new stitches to neck at the end of the last row from the wrong side as shown in A.6 = 36-36-38-38-40-40 stitches. When you have worked 4 rows in A.6 cast on 48 new stitches to neck at the end of the last row from the wrong side = 84-84-86-86-88-88 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work left shoulder back as described below.

LEFT SHOULDER BACK (when the garment is worn):
Cast on 26-26-28-28-30-30 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase, at the same time, 8 stitches in all sizes evenly on row = 34-34-36-36-38-38 stitches. Work back from the wrong side with purl 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.7 (= 31-31-33-33-35-35 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way. When you have worked 3 rows in A.7 cast on 2 new stitches to neck at the end of the last row from the right side as shown in A.7 = 36-36-38-38-40-40 stitches. When A.7 has been completed, work the left and right shoulders together to the back piece as described below.

BACK PIECE:
Place the stitches from the two shoulders on the same circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 (the 48 stitches cast on to neck on right shoulder back = mid back) = 120-120-124-124-128-128 stitches.
The first row is worked as follows from the right side (start on row 3 in A.3, A.4 and A.5 marked with star): Work 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.3 (= 38-38-40-40-42-42 stitches), work A.4 (= 38 stitches), work A.5 (= 38-38-40-40-42-42 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way (when A.3, A.4 and A.5 have been completed 1 time in height from row 3, repeat all rows in height to finished length). AT THE SAME TIME increase to armhole as described below.
ARMHOLE:
When the piece measures 17-15-16-14-13-13 cm / 6 3/4"-6"-6 1/4"-5½"-5"-5" increase 1 stitch in each side to armholes – read INCREASE TIP-2, i.e. increase from the right side after 3 edge stitches in garter stitch at the beginning of the row and before 3 edge stitches in garter stitch at the end of the row. Increase in this way every 2nd row a total of 3-7-7-13-17-21 times, then cast on 3-4-6-6-8-10 new stitches at the end of the next two rows = 132-142-150-162-178-190 stitches and the piece measures approx. 19-20-21-22-24-26 cm / 7½"-8"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9½"-10 1/4'' from the shoulder down.
Now work the front and back pieces together as described below.

BODY:
Place the stitches from the front piece on the needle (without working the stitches), insert 1 marker thread (= in the side), place the stitches from the back piece on the needle and insert 1 marker thread (= in the side) = 264-284-300-324-356-380 stitches.
The first round is worked as follows: Work 6-7-9-9-11-13 stitches in garter stitch, 3-7-7-13-17-21 stitches stockinette stitch, continue A.3, A.4 and A.5 as before, work 3-7-7-13-17-21 stitches stockinette stitch, 12-14-18-18-22-26 stitches in garter stitch (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 12-14-18-18-22-26 stitches), work 3-7-7-13-17-21 stitches stockinette stitch, continue A.3, A.4 and A.5 as before, work 3-7-7-13-17-21 stitches stockinette stitch and finish with 6-7-9-9-11-13 stitches in garter stitch.
Continue the pattern in this way, but when you have worked 2 ridges over the middle 12-14-18-18-22-26 stitches in each side work the next round as follows: NOTE: Start the round 3 stitches before the marker thread in the side, work A.8 (= 6 stitches, the marker thread sits in the middle of A.8), work 6-11-13-19-25-31 stitches stockinette stitch, continue A.3, A.4 and A.5 as before, work 6-11-13-19-25-31 stitches stockinette stitch, work A.8 (= 6 stitches, the marker thread sits in the middle of A.8), work 6-11-13-19-25-31 stitches stockinette stitch, continue A.3, A.4 and A.5 as before and finish with 6-11-13-19-25-31 stitches stockinette stitch.
Continue the pattern in this way. When the piece measures 32-34-36-38-40-42 cm / 12½''-13 3/8''-14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½'' from the shoulder (approx. 13-14-15-16-16-16 cm / 5"-5½"-6"-6 1/4"-6 1/4"-6 1/4'' from the armhole), increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP-3 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 6th round (approx. every 2 cm / 3/4'') to finished length (if the knitting gauge is correct in height, this is equivalent to approx. 21 increases in each side).
When the piece measures 73-75-77-79-81-83 cm / 28¾''-29½''-30 3/8''-31''-32''-32¾'' there are approx. 348-368-384-408-440-464 stitches on the needle.
On the next round, knit together the stitches in each cable (both the cables with 4 stitches and the cables with 2 stitches) 2 and 2 (just the cables, not the purl sections or the stockinette stitch sections) = approx. 294-314-330-354-386-410 stitches.
Work 3 RIDGES in the round over all stitches – see description above. Bind off with knit, but to prevent the bind-off edge being tight, you can make 1 yarn over after every 8th stitch at the same time as you bind off (the yarn overs are bind off as normal stitches). The whole jumper measures approx. 74-76-78-80-82-84 cm / 29 1/8''-30''-30¾''-31½''-32¼''-33'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 38-40-40-42-48-48 stitches with short circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work stockinette stitch back and forth and cast on new stitches to sleeve cap at the end of each row in each side as follows: Cast on 3 stitches 1 time in all sizes, 2 stitches 2 times in all sizes, 1 stitch 7-8-11-13-14-17 times, 2 stitches 2-2-1-1-1-1 times and 3-4-6-6-8-10 stitches 1 time = 80-86-92-98-110-120 stitches and the piece measures approx. 8-9-10-11-12-14 cm / 3"-3½"-4"-4½"-4 3/4"-5½'' from the cast-on edge and down. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the row (= mid under the sleeve). Continue by working stockinette stitch in the round, but over the middle 6 stitches under the sleeve work A.8. When the piece measures 3-3-3-2-2-1 cm / 1"-1"-1"-3/4"-3/4"-½'' from the marker thread decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 2½-2-1½-1½-1-1 cm / 7/8"-3/4"-½"-½"-3/8"-3/8'' a total of 11-14-15-18-22-26 times = 58-58-62-62-66-68 stitches.
When the piece measures 30-30-29-29-29-27 cm / 11 3/4"-11 3/4"-11½"-11½"-11½"-10½'' from the marker thread (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulders) knit 1 round where you increase 22-22-23-23-24-22 stitches evenly on round = 80-80-85-85-90-90 stitches.
Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5. The next round is worked as follows: Continue A.8 over the 6 stitches mid under the sleeve, work A.9A until there are 4 stitches left before A.8 (= 14-14-15-15-16-16 repeats of 5 stitches) and finish with A.9B (= 4 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way. When the cuff measures 12 cm / 4¾'' decrease all purl 3 to purl 2, by purling 2 together in each purl section = 64-64-68-68-72-72 stitches. Continue working until the cuff measures 15 cm / 6'' (the whole sleeve measures approx. 53-54-54-55-56-56 cm / 21"-21 1/4"-21 1/4"-21½"-22"-22'' from the cast-on edge). On the next round knit together the stitches in each cable 2 and 2 = 48-48-51-51-54-54 stitches. Work 2 ridges in the round. Bind off with knit, but to prevent the bind-off edge being tight, you can cast of with double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 or make 1 yarn over after approx. every 8th stitch as on the body. The sleeve measures approx. 54-55-55-56-57-57 cm / 21¼''-21 5/8''-21 5/8''-22''-22½''-22½'' from the top down. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the cast-on edge.
Knit up approx.116 to 126 stitches around the neck on short circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5. Work 3 ridges and bind off with knit, but to prevent the bind-off edge being tight, you can cast of with short circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Sew in the sleeves.

I diagram beskrivningen så saknas tecken för 3 av beskrivningarna = mellan 2 maskor görs det 1 omslag om stickan, på nästa varv stickas omslaget vridet så att det inte blir hål = 2 maskor räta tillsammans = sätt 1 maska på flätsticka bakom arbetet, sticka 1 rätmaska, sticka maskan på flätstickan rät Hur ska man göra Med vänlig hälsning, Annica

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 11:06:

Hei Annica. Mener du at det er 3 av symbolene du ikke kan se i symbolforklaringen? Det fungerer helt fint hos oss - vi har sjekket både på PC og mobil. Vi gikk gjennom symbolene, og så at 2 av dem du nevnte (=2 masker rett sammen og = mellom 2 masker lages 1 kast) ikke er brukt i diagrammene. Vi har nå fjernet dem fra symbolforklaringen. Symboldet for = sett 1 maske på flettepinne bak arbeidet, strikke 1 rett, strikk masken på flettepinnen er en sort rettvinklet trekant som går over 2 ruter. Symbolforklaringen skal nå være oppdatert, takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse.

Sooz 127 19.06.2018 - 15:15:

Hi - I love this design and am using Drops Flora yarn but I've had to go up to size 4/4.5mm needles to get the gauge right which means the knit is a bit 'loose' and looses the effect. Generally my gauge is about right so not sure what I'm doing wrong . Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

DROPS Design 19.06.2018 kl. 15:56:

Dear Sooz127, after you have worked your swatch, wash it as you will wash the garment afterwards, and leave it dry flat. Check then measurements and adjust needle size if necessary - you should get 24 sts x 32 rows in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm. Happy knitting!

Natalia Marino 17.04.2018 - 10:56:

What happens with the stitches created for the armhole during the front piece knitting? Should they be knitted every row like the garter st or should they be purl on the right side and knit on the reverse? Thank you.

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 11:59:

Dear Mrs Marino, the increased sts are worked in stocking stitch - read INCREASE TIP-2 (for the armholes), and the new sts cast on on each side are also worked in stocking st before working front and back piece together in the round. Happy knitting!

Laura 10.01.2018 - 11:23:

Diagrammeissa A1 ja A2 on selvästi virhe, riviltä 19 alken pitäisi olla silmukan verran enemmän nurjia silmukoita pääntien lisäysreunassa. Siten kuin ne nyt ovat, ne eivät kohtaa diagrammeja A4 ja A3, kuten pitäisi, että kuvio jatkuisi katkoksitta.

Christiane Schreder 16.12.2017 - 11:58:

Hallo, zu Diagramm A1 wüsste ich gerne ob ich durch die vier Reihen oberhalb vom Diagramm das Muster für den Zopf links über 4 Maschen abändern muss und somit nicht mehr nach Chart stricke. Besten Dank.

DROPS Design 18.12.2017 kl. 08:24:

Liebe Frau Schreder, wenn die 20 Reihen in A.8 gestrickt sind, ist das Muster fertig und muss ab 1. Reihe wiederholt sein, nur die 2 Zöpfe werden nicht im gleichen Rythmus gestrickt (= jede 6.Reihe). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kristina Ramberg 23.10.2017 - 11:38:

Hej jag har två frågor. På diagrammen för A3, A4 och A5 så finns det 4 varv och fyra maskor som liksom "sticker" ut från mönstret. Jag har aldrig stickat efter mönster så här förut och förstår inte hur jag ska tänka kring de delarna. Min andra fråga gäller de maskor som ska ökas till ärmhål på framstycket när man stickat i mitt fall 14 cm. Ska dessa ingå i mönstret eller blir de bara stickade som räta/aviga? Med vänlig hälsning och tack för hjälp på förhand Kristina

DROPS Design 24.10.2017 kl. 14:16:

Dessa 4 maskor i diagrammet är bara med för att visa var följande flätvridning ska göras, du fortsätter alltså bara mönstret som tidigare. De ökade maskorna till ärmen stickas i slätstickning.

Camilla 01.10.2017 - 21:45:

Hur ökar jag maskorna som ska ökas i diagram A1 och A2? Det finns inga markeringar som visar var. Förklaring till tecknet med ett omslag mellan två maskor finns ovanför diagrammen men det tecknet finns ingenstans i något av diagrammen. Det står att man ökar på avigsidan men det ser inte ut så på diagram A1.

DROPS Design 02.10.2017 kl. 17:31:

Hej! Dessa maskor ökas genom att man lägger upp nya maskor mot halsen (dvs. från avigsidan på vänster framst och från rätsidan på höger framst), de nya maskorna finns sedan med i diagrammen.

Annika Mathiasson 25.08.2017 - 12:45:

Jag fattar inte på fram och bakstycket: "OBS: Börja varvet 3 maskor före markören i sidan, sticka A.8 (= 6 maskor, markören sitter mitt i A.8), sticka 6-11-13-19-25-31 maskor slätstickning, fortsätt A.3, A.4 och A.5 som förut, sticka 6-11-13-19-25-31 maskor slätstickning, sticka A.8 (= 6 maskor, markören sitter mitt i A.8), sticka 6-11-13-19-25-31 maskor slätstickning, " A8 verkar ju vara mönster, sticka 13 m slätstickning? Har fastnat totalt :-)

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 15:07:

Hej, du börjar 3 m före markören för att kunna sticka A.8 med flätan i mitten, märktråden sitter mitt i flätan. Lycka till!

Anne Westgård Strand 08.08.2017 - 13:30:

Fant en feil i diagramforklaringen. Flette over 4 masker på første = sett 2 masker på flettepinne foran arbeidet, strikk 1 vrang, strikk de 2 maskene på flettepinnen rett. Dette kan ikke stemme. Må være: sett 2 masker på flettepinne bak arbeidet, strikk 2 rett, strikk maskene på flettepinnen rett.

DROPS Design 15.08.2017 kl. 09:47:

Hei Anne. Ja, her har det vært en copy & paste feil på den norske oppskriften. Teksten til 7. diagramikon stod også som forklaring til 8. diagramikon. Dette er nå ordnet. Takk for at du gjorde oss oppmerksom på dette. God Fornøyelse videre på denne flotte genseren.

Iréne Lund 02.07.2017 - 16:45:

Mycket snygg stickning i en fin modell.
