INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

MOSS STITCH:
ROW 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROW 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit.
Repeat row 2 upwards.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The jumper is worked back and forth with circular needle and is sewn together in the side to finish. Stitches for the sleeve are worked up in the armhole on the body and the sleeves are worked top down.

BACK PIECE: 
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle. Cast on 50-54-58-63-69-75 stitches with 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands) with circular needle size 9 mm. Work MOSS STITCH – see description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 52-53-54-55-56-57 cm cast off 1 stitch in each side (marks the armhole) = 48-52-56-61-67-73 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm. Cast off the middle 18-18-18-19-19-19 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. On the next row from the neck decrease 1 stitch = 14-16-18-20-23-26 stitches left for the shoulder. Loosely cast off all stitches when the piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as for the back piece until the piece measures 64-65-66-67-68-69 cm = 48-52-56-61-67-73 stitches. Place the middle 12-12-12-13-13-13 stitches on a thread for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue casting off on each row from the neck as follows: 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 14-16-18-20-23-26 stitches left on the shoulder. Loosely cast off all stitches when the piece measures 70-72-74-76-78-80 cm. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams.

LEFT SLEEVE:
You now work up stitches along the armhole at the top of the jumper and the sleeve is worked back and forth with circular needle, top down. 

Start where the 1 stitch where cast off for armhole on the left front piece and work up 36-38-40-42-44-46 stitches from the right side with 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands) with circular needle size 9 mm. Knit up stitches along the armhole on the front piece and down along the armhole on the back piece towards the stitch cast off for armhole. Work moss stitch back and forth. When the sleeve measures 3 cm decrease 1 stitch in each side of the piece. Decrease every 5-4½-4½-3 ½-3½-3 cm a total of 7-8-8-9-9-10 times = 22-22-24-24-26-26 stitches. When the piece measures 39-38-37-36-34-32 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of the shoulder width) knit 1 row where you increase 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches evenly on the row = 28-28-32-32-36-36 stitches. Change to circular needle size 8 mm. Work rib, knit 2/ purl 2 for 10 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, the sleeve measures a total of 49-48-47-46-44-42 cm.

RIGHT SLEEVE:
Work as left sleeve, but start on back piece. Knit up stitches along armhole on back piece and down along armhole on front piece.

ASSEMBLY - 2:
Sew the side and sleeve seams in one go, in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch.

NECK:
Work up approx. 56-64 stitches (including the stitches on the thread and divisible by 4) with short circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round, then work rib, knit 2/ purl 2 over all stitches. Continue with rib for 5 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

POCKETS:
The piece is worked back and forth. Cast on 20 stitches with 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands) and circular needle size 9 mm. Work moss stitch until the piece measures 14 cm. Change to circular needle size 8 mm. On the next row from the right side, work rib, knit 2 / purl 2, AT THE SAME TIME increase 6 stitches evenly on row = 26 stitches (finish the rib with knit 2). Work rib for 4 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work 1 more pocket. Sew the pockets onto the jumper, approx. 6-8 cm from the bottom edge (see photo).

Beste kan het zijn dat ik meer steken moet opzetten dan op het patroon sta want ik heb eerst een proeflapje gemaakt en ik had 12 steken om 10 cm te bereiken. In afwachting van uw antwoord dank ik u, Brigitte

Dag Brigitte, Als je 12 steken op 10 cm hebt, zou je inderdaad meer steken op moeten zetten. Je kunt het patroon omrekenen naar het juiste aantal steken, maar je kunt ook nog even een proeflapje maken met een naald of een halve naald groter. Als het proeflapje dan overeenkomt, kun je gewoon het patroon volgen.

Holaaa es precioso y lo estoy haciendo voy por la mitad. Me encanta esta página sois geniales 😉

Sara 08.11.2017 - 15:43:

Buongiorno vorrei sapere se questo modello può essere fatto utilizzando due capi di brushed alpaca silk e i ferri del 9?

DROPS Design 08.11.2017 kl. 16:08:

Buongiorno Sara, si, può utilizzare due capi di Brushed Alpaca Silk, controllando che il suo campione corrisponda a quello indicato. Buon lavoro!

Hej! Den här tröjan är så fin men skulle vilja veta om den finns i kofta? /Annie

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 14:51:

Hej Annie, Ja den kommer att läggas ut om ett par veckor. :)

Janny 06.10.2017 - 00:41:

Kan in plaats van gerstekorrel gewoon tricotsteek worden gebruikt? Heeft dit invloed op de afmetingen en/of het aantal steken?

DROPS Design 07.10.2017 kl. 16:19:

Hoi Janny, Ja, je kunt deze in tricotsteek breien. 10 steken in tricotsteek is 10 cm breed in tricosteek in de beschrijving van het proeflapje. Omdat je (als voorbeeld) 50 steken op moet zetten in de kleinste maat, komt dit overeen met de de schematekening onderaan de pagina.

If I only used Drops Cloud (yarn group E) to make this beautiful long sweater what would be the quantity of wool needed? Thanks for your reply.

DROPS Design 01.09.2017 kl. 08:21:

Dear Mrs Gravel, please read here how to calculate new amount of yarn when choosing an alternative. Happy knitting!

Vill bara påpeka att det är lite blandad kompott vad gäller språk i detta mönster

DROPS Design 18.08.2017 kl. 07:46:

Hej. Tack för info, detta är nu rättat.

I can see myself in this during our cold and rainy winter days. When will the pattern be available? I love it.
