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.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. The whole pattern is worked in stockinette stitch. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 and A.5).

SEED STITCH:
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit. Repeat round 2.

DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 312 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 48) = 6.5. In this example, you knit alternately every 5th and 6th stitch and every 6th and 7th stitch together.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the garment losing its elasticity 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.

INCREASE TIP (for mid under the sleeve):
Start 1 stitch before the marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

BIND OFF TIP:
To avoid the bind-off edge being tight, you can bind off with ½ needle size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the armholes, then the front and back pieces are finished separately, back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed/ short circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 228-258-258-282-282-312 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and gray. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches SEED STITCH – see description above *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work in this way for 5 cm / 2''. Change to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 and knit 1 round where you decrease 36-42-42-42-42-48 stitches evenly on round - read DECREASE TIP above = 192-216-216-240-240-264 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round and 1 marker after 96-108-108-120-120-132 stitches (= the sides) and allow the markers to follow your work upwards. Continue with stockinette stitch – REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 24-25-26-27-28-29 cm / 9½''-9 3/4''-10 1/4''-10 5/8''-11''-11 3/8'' work pattern as follows:
Work A.1 in the round (= 24-27-27-30-30-33 repeats of 8 stitches) – read PATTERN and KNITTING TIP above. When the whole of A.1 has been completed in height, work A.2 in the round (= 64-72-72-80-80-88 repeats of 3 stitches). When the whole of diagram A.2 has been completed in height, work pattern as follows: Work A.3a (= 18 stitches) 0-1-1-0-0-1 time, work A.3b (= 24 stitches) 8-8-8-10-10-10 times and A.3c (= 6 stitches) 0-1-1-0-0-1 time. When the whole of diagram A.3 has been completed in height, the piece measures approx. 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm / 18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''.
Work the next round as follows: Work A.4 (= 64-72-72-80-80-88 repeats of 3 stitches) to end of round. Continue in the round according to A.4 until the piece measures 49-50-51-52-53-54 cm / 19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21''-21¼'' – finish after working a round marked with arrow in the diagram. Work the next round in A.4 and bind off 5-5-5-9-9-9 stitches in each side for armholes (= 2-2-2-4-4-4 stitches before/3-3-3-5-5-5 stitches after both markers). Front and back pieces are now worked back and forth separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 91-103-103-111-111-123 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side). Continue back and forth until the whole of diagram A.4 have been completed 1 time in height, with 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see description above, in each side. Now work pattern as follows: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.5a (= 4 stitches) a total of 22-25-25-27-27-30 times in width, work A.5b (= 1 stitch) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When the whole of diagram A.5 has been completed in height, continue working in stockinette stitch and gray with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until finished length. When the piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm / 25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8'' bind off the middle 25-25-27-27-27-29 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Bind off 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 32-38-37-41-41-46 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' and bind off - read BIND OFF TIP. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 91-103-103-111-111-123 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side). Continue in the same way as for back piece until the piece measures 60-62-64-65-67-69 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8''. Now place the middle 13-13-15-15-15-17 stitches on 1 thread for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Bind off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: 2 stitches 2 times and 1 stitch 3 times = 32-38-37-41-41-46 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' and bind off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed/short circular needle.
Cast on 36-36-42-42-42-42 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and gray. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches seed stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work like this for 3 cm / 1''. Change to double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 and knit 1 round where you decrease 4-2-6-6-4-2 stitches evenly on round = 32-34-36-36-38-40 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve) and allow the marker to follow your work upwards. Continue with stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 4-6-6-6-5-8 cm / 1½"-2½"-2½"-2½"-2"-3'' increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 4-3-3-2½-2½-2 cm / 1½"-1 1/8"-1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4'' a total of 11-12-12-14-15-15 times = 54-58-60-64-68-70 stitches. When the piece measures 46-43-44-42-43-41 cm / 18"-17"-17 1/4"-16½"-17"-16'' bind off the middle 8-8-8-10-10-10 stitches (= 4-4-4-5-5-5 stitches on each side of the marker) and work a small sleeve cap back and forth on needle. Work stockinette stitch and bind off at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: bind off 5-5-6-5-6-6 stitches 2 times and bind off the remaining stitches. The sleeve measures approx. 48-45-46-44-45-43 cm / 19"-17 3/4"-18"-17 1/4"-17 3/4"-17''. Work another sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the bind-off edges. Sew in the sleeves, inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side approx. 66-78 stitches around the neck (including the stitches from the thread in front) with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and gray. Knit 1 round where you adjust the number of stitches to 66-66-72-72-78-78 stitches. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches seed stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work like this for 6 cm / 2 3/8'', bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Hej, hvis bag og forside har 96 masker og der skal lukkes 5 masker i hver side til ærmegab hvordan kan der så blive 91 masker tilbage? 5 plus 5 giver 10... og det betyder 86 masker tilbage. Jeg forstår ikke hvordan I tæller.

DROPS Design 07.05.2019 kl. 11:57:

Hej Jena, du har 96 + 96 =192m lukker 5 m af i hver side (ialt 10m) = 182 m deler med 2 = 91 masker på for og bagstykke. God fornøjelse!

Adriana Kesselman 22.05.2018 - 20:03:

I NEED HELP INTERPRETING CHART A.4. SINCE I WILL BE KNITTING BACK AND FOR, HOW MANY ROWS OF KNITTING DOES EACH SQUARE REPRESENT? AS I UNDERSTAND IT, SOME ROWS WITH PATTERNS IN DIFFERENT COLOUR WILL FALL ON A PURL ROW? AND WHAT DO THE ARROWS MEAN?

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 07:57:

Dear Mrs Kessselman, 1 square in diagram = 1 stitch x 1 row. Diagrams shows all rows in pattern. Happy knitting!

Heidi 09.04.2018 - 14:14:

Hei. Jeg er nybegynner og trenger nå litt hjelp. Jeg har strikket A1 og A2, (størrelsen jeg strikker er M), men så skjønner jeg ingenting. Hvem av de neste skal strikkes nå? Det står A3a 1 gang, og så A3b 8 ganger og deretter A3c 1 gang? Hvilke skal jeg velge? Regner med at det også er etter størrelsen? Ser frem til et snarlig svar så jeg kan komme videre.

DROPS Design 10.04.2018 kl. 08:08:

Hei Heidi, Når du er ferdig med A.1 og A.2 skal neste omgangen strikkes med A.3 mønstrene (A.3a, A.3b og A.3c) i den rekkefølgen skrevet i oppskriften. Så på neste omgang, når du strikker M størrelse, begynner du med A.3a (=18 masker) 1 gang, også A.3b (=24 masker) 8 ganger etter hverandre og avslutte omgangen med A.3c (= 6 masker) 1 gang. Da har du strikket første omgang og fortsetter slik fram til du er ferdig med A.3 i høyden. God fornøyelse!

Can you tell me how much yarn this pattern would need if it is knitted in one colour, i.e. without the fair-isle pattern, and whether this would alter the number of stitches required? The measurements seem to be much larger than for similar styled jumper patterns on the website.

DROPS Design 19.12.2017 kl. 08:20:

Dear Mrs Walton, we are unfortunately not able to adjust each our patterns to every individual request. You can get help from our other pattern for jumpers in yarn group C (see here, check the measurement chart for same shape. You are also welcome to contact your DROPS store for any further individual assistance, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Sally Stephenson 08.10.2017 - 10:08:

This pattern seems huge, I started to knit it and realised it was going to swamp me. I am a UK 16/XL, but now starting again as L. Is this OK? Or am I missing something?

DROPS Design 08.10.2017 kl. 22:14:

Dear Sally, since every person knits slightly differently, it s very important to check your gauge by kniting a small swatch, wash it, dry it and compare with the number of stitches and rows given in the pattern and, if necessary adjust the size of the needle you are using, and/or the size you are knitting. Happy crafting!

Fin genser, men "vintermys"? Hvis det ikke handler om å knipe sammen øynene om vinteren blir det vel "vinterkos" på norsk ... "mys" er svensk ;)
