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. 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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 104 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 12) = 8.6.
In this example, knit together alternately every 7th and 8th stitch and every 8th and 9th stitch when decreasing.
If you are increasing make 1 yarn over after alternately every 8th and 9th stitch; on the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

ELEVATION:
Insert 1 marker in the middle stitch on the needle (= mid back). Start from the right side with dark blue and knit until you have worked 11-11-12-13-13-14 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 22-22-24-26-26-28 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 33-33-36-39-39-42 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 44-44-48-52-52-56 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 55-55-60-65-65-70 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 66-66-72-78-78-84 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit to mid back.

KNITTING TIP-1:
To prevent the knitting gauge becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands do not tighten at the back of the piece. You can increase a needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Choose diagram for your size. The whole of the pattern is worked in stockinette stitch.

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

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. It is divided for the split at the bottom of the body, front and back pieces are finished separately. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle, top down. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.

NECKLINE:
Cast on 104-108-116-124-128-136 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and dark blue. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). When the rib measures 2-2-2-3-3-3 cm / 3/4''-3/4''-3/4''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8'' knit 1 round where you decrease 12-12-16-16-16-16 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 92-96-100-108-112-120 stitches.
Continue by working yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 round. For a better fit, you can now work an ELEVATION in the back of the neck – see description above.
When the elevation has been completed, work A.1 in the round (= 23-24-25-27-28-30 repeats of 4 stitches). Continue the pattern and increase as shown in the diagram. Read KNITTING TIP-1 and REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When A.1 has been completed, there are 161-168-175-189-196-210 stitches on the needle.
Continue by working A.2 – AT THE SAME TIME on the first round, increase 31-36-47-51-56-60 stitches evenly on round (marked with arrow-1 in A.2) = 192-204-222-240-252-270 stitches on the needle. Continue the pattern. On the round marked with arrow-2 in A.2 increase 28-36-38-40-48-50 stitches evenly on round = 220-240-260-280-300-320 stitches.
When A.2 has been completed, work A.3 in the round (= 11-12-13-14-15-16 repeats of 20 stitches). Continue the pattern and increase as shown in the diagram. After the last increase in A.3 there are 275-300-325-350-375-400 stitches on the needle. On the round marked with arrow-3 in A.3 increase 1-8-11-10-9-8 stitches evenly on the round = 276-308-336-360-384-408 stitches.
When A.3 has been completed, work A.4 in the round (choose diagram for your size = 69-77-84-90-96-102 repeats of 4 stitches). On the round marked with arrow-4 in A.4 increase 10-8-14-8-12-16 stitches evenly on round = 286-316-350-368-396-424 stitches.
When A.4 has been completed, the piece measures approx. 25-25-26-27-29-31 cm / 9 3/4"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-10½"-11½"-12 1/4'' from the cast on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows with dark blue: Knit 43-47-51-55-60-65 stitches (= ½ back piece), place the next 58-64-74-74-78-82 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches (= in the side under the sleeve), knit 85-94-101-110-120-130 stitches (= front piece), place the next 58-64-74-74-78-82 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve) and knit the remaining 42-47-50-55-60-65 stitches (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand.
Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 186-204-222-240-264-288 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches which were cast on under the sleeve in each side and start the round by one of the marker threads.
SIZES S, M, L, XL and XXL:
Work A.5 in the round (= 31-34-37-40-44-48 repeats of 6 stitches). On the round marked with arrow-5 in A.5 increase 6-4-2-0-0 stitches evenly on round (for S, M and L, make sure you have the same number of stitches on the front and back pieces) = 192-208-224-240-264 stitches on the needle (96-104-112-120-132 stitches on front and back pieces).
When A.5 has been completed, work A.6 in the round (= 24-26-28-30-33 repeats of 8 stitches). Continue the pattern until A.6 has been completed. Continue working as described below in ALL SIZES.
SIZE XXXL = 288 stitches. Work A.6 in the round (= 36 repeats of 8 stitches – NOTE: in this size, you do not work A.5 because the repeat has been worked in A.4). Continue until A.6 has been completed.

ALL SIZES:
= 192-208-224-240-264-288 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 8-8-6-6-4-3 cm / 3"-3"-2 1/4"-2 1/4"-1½"-1'' from the separation by the armholes. Continue by working stockinette stitch with dark blue.
AT THE SAME TIME on the first round after A.6 increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 8-6-8-6-6-6 cm / 3"-2 1/4"-3"-2 1/4"-2 1/4"-2 1/4'' a total of 2-3-3-3-4-4 times in each side = 200-220-236-252-280-304 stitches. When the piece measures 20-22-23-24-24-24 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9"-9½"-9½"-9½" from the separation, work 6 stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above, in each side (3 stitches in garter stitch on each side of both marker threads – the remaining stitches are continued in stockinette stitch). When you have worked 3 ridges in height, divide the piece by the marker threads for the split and the front and back pieces are continued separately.

FRONT PIECE:
= 100-110-118-126-140-152 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch with 3 stitches garter stitch in each side. When the piece measures 51-53-55-57-59-61 cm / 20''-21''-21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24'' from the shoulder (approx. 5 cm / 2'' from the separation for split) knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 24-26-30-30-32-36 stitches evenly on row (do not increase over the 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side) = 124-136-148-156-172-188 stitches. Purl 1 row from the wrong side with knit 3 edge stitches in each side (the yarn overs are purled twisted to prevent holes). Change to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work the next row from the right side as follows: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until there are 5 stitches left on the needle, knit 2 and finish with 3 stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib in this way, but after 2 cm / 3/4'' increase all purl 2 (seen from the right side) to purl 3 by making 1 yarn over in the transition from knit 2 to purl 2 = 153-168-183-193-213-233 stitches. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.
Continue working until the rib measures 8 cm / 3 1/8''. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and bind off with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl. The whole jumper measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' from the shoulder down.

BACK PIECE:
= 100-110-118-126-140-152 stitches. Work in the same way as described under FRONT PIECE.

SLEEVE:
Place the 58-64-74-74-78-82 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 66-72-84-84-90-96 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches and start the round by the marker thread (= mid under the sleeve).
READ THE REST OF SLEEVE BEFORE CONTINUING!
SIZES S, M, L, XL and XXL:
Work A.5A in the round (= 11-12-14-14-15 repeats of 6 stitches). When A.5A has been completed, work A.6A in the round, but be aware that A.6A does not fit mid under sleeve in all sizes. When starting A.6A you have decreased 1-1-2-2-0 stitches mid under the sleeve as described below in ALL SIZES = 64-70-80-80-90 stitches on the needle. In other words, in S, L and XL start A.6A with the first stitch in the diagram and you work 8-10-10 repeats of 8 stitches. In size M, start A.6A with the 2nd stitch in the diagram and in XXL start A.6A with the 8th stitch in the diagram.
SIZE XXXL: Work A.6A in the round (= 12 repeats of 8 stitches – NOTE: in this size, you do not work A.5A because this repeat has been worked in A.4A).

ALL SIZES:
When A.5A and A.6A have been completed, work stockinette stitch onwards with dark blue. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 2-2-2-2-3-3 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-1"-1'' from the separation under the sleeve, 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 11-13-18-18-19-21 times = 44-46-48-48-52-54 stitches.
Continue working until the sleeve measures 32-32-32-32-31-29 cm / 12½"-12½"-12½"-12½"-12 1/4"-11½'' from the separation (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 12-10-12-12-12-14 stitches evenly on round = 56-56-60-60-64-68 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 8 cm / 3 1/8''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight, 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 sleeve measures approx. 40-40-40-40-39-37 cm / 15 3/4"-15 3/4"-15 3/4"-15 3/4"-15 1/4"-14½" from the separation. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

This pattern has been corrected. .

FRONT PIECE: = 100-110-118-126-140-152 stitches. Continue with stockinette with 3 stitches garter stitch in each side. When the piece measures 51-53-55-57-59-61 cm from the shoulder (approx. 5 cm/2 inches from the separation for split)...

Merci pour votre réponse. Je connais cette technique. \r\nLe problème est que je suis en taille S/M et non XXL comme vous le pensez. \r\nJ\'ai donc tricoté le motif A5 auquel manquent les trois derniers rangs, et ensuite le motif A6 complet. Autrement dit, je n\'ai que 2 rangs bleus entre les deux. Impossible de broder les points ici. \r\nY a-t-il un moyen de couper, reprendre au tricot puis recoudre la partie déjà tricotée?\r\nEncore merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 15:31:

Bonjour Christine, je pensais vous faire gagner du temps... pour couper le tricot, vous pouvez utiliser cette technique, gardez bien les mailles des 2 côtés, vous pourrez ensuite assembler le bas du pull en grafting aux mailles que vous aurez tricotées sur les derniers tours de A.5. Bon tricot!

Christine 14.04.2018 - 13:07: http://www.garnstudi ...

Bonjour,\r\nJ\'ai terminé dos/devant, et je me rends compte que j\'ai oublié le dernier motif de A5 (soit 3 rangs). C\'est très dommage car ça alourdit le dessin d\'ensemble.\r\nEst-il possible de couper le tricot horizontalement, de tricoter ce qui manque puis de recoudre le morceau découpé??\r\nUn grand merci d\'avance.

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 08:57:

Bonjour Christine, tout à fait, mais en taille XXL, A.5 ne comporte qu'un seul rang jacquard sur les 3 rangs du diagramme, il peut être plus simple de broder les mailles du 2ème rang - voir vidéo>/a>. Bon tricot!

Jeg har strikket denne model 2 gange med fint resultat. Når jeg er færdig med bærestykket og har sat masker af til ærmerne, strikker jeg ca 10 cm af bolen ( kroppen).Så lader jeg denne del af arbejdet hvile og strikker nu ærmerne.. Når ærmerne er strikket laver jeg bolen færdig. Når jeg strikket trøjen i den rækkefølge, slipper jeg for at sidde at vende hele trøjen i arbejdet med ærmerne

Jeg ønsker å strikke denne i hvit og blå som på bildet i str S . Hvor mange nøster trenger jeg av hver farge? Og hvilke pinner trenger jeg?

Silke Nowitzky 28.02.2018 - 21:16:

Hallo zusammen. Für den Pulli in Größe M habe ich noch 6 Knäuel von der Hauptfarbe übrig. Habe nur ich diese Abweichungen? Liebe Grüße Silke Nowitzky

Hei. Strikket denne i småløp. Passer fint men har mer enn 150 gram garn til overs etter oppskriften . 🤔

Wendy Fowler 03.02.2018 - 17:01:

I’m onto the sleeves and it is asking to use A.5A and A.6A am I right to assume that these are the same as A5 and A6 but without any increase rows. Also when you knit the medium size and it says start with the second stitch does this just mean you miss the first stitch of each round ?

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 08:55:

Dear Mrs Fowler, when you start A.6A you have already started to decrease, ie 1 st has been dec on each side of marker mid under sleeve. In size M, start A.6A with 2nd st in diagram then work to the end of diagram and repeat A.6A entirely in width to the end of round (and remember to continue the dec mid under arm). Happy knitting!

Oups! pour la taille XXXL

Bonjour je ne vois pas la grille A5 pour la taille XXL

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 12:43:

Bonjour Mme Broux, en taille XXXL on ne tricote pas A.5 car ce motif correspond à celui tricoté à la fin de A.4. Bon tricot!
