INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of A.1.
Increase 1 stitch on each side of A.1 as follows (= 8 new stitches each time you increase).
Work to A.1, 1 yarn over, work A.1, 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

INCREASE TIP (for the sides):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread in the side. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these) and make 1 yarn over.
On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for the sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together.
----------------------------------------------------------

The jumper is worked in the round with circular needle, from mid back and top down.

JUMPER:
Cast on 112-120-124-128-136-136 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Puna. Knit 1 round, then work rib, knit 2/ purl 2. Continue with rib in this way for 4 cm. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above, on the first round, decrease 4 stitches evenly on round = 108-116-120-124-132-132 stitches. Continue working as follows: Knit 11-12-13-15-16-18, *1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times (= these 7 stitches become 13 stitches), knit 18-20-20-18-20-16, *1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 22-24-26-30-32-36, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 18-20-20-18-20-16, *1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and knit 11-12-13-15-16-18 = 132-140-144-148-156-156 stitches. Knit 1 round, the yarn overs are knitted twisted to prevent holes. Continue working as follows: Knit 4-5-6-8-9-11 (= half back piece), A.1 (= 27 stitches), knit 4-6-6-4-6-2 (=sleeve), A.1, knit 8-10-12-16-18-22 (= front piece), A1, knit 4-6-6-4-6-2 (= sleeve), A.1, knit 4-5-6-8-9-11 (= half back piece).

READ THE WHOLE OF THE NEXT SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue this pattern, at the same time increase on each side of A.1 to RAGLAN – see description above. Increase every 2nd round 21-24-27-30-32-35 times. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! After all the increases, there are 300-332-360-388-412-436 stitches on the needle. Continue the pattern as before (without increases) until the piece measures 22-24-26-29-30-33 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.

The next round is worked as follows: Work 45-49-53-58-63-68 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve), work 90-98-106-116-126-136 stitches (= front piece), place the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve) and work the remaining 45-49-53-58-63-68 stitches (= half back piece).

BODY:
= 196-212-232-252-276-300 stitches. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches that where cast on. Continue A.1 over the 20-20-20-20-22-22 stitches in the pattern which remain on the front and back piece, but on every 2nd round, make 1 yarn over on the outside of each A.1 (= towards mid front and mid back) and knit 2 stitches together on each side of marker thread in the side. The yarn overs are knitted twisted on the next round. The number of stitches is the same, but the stitches in A.1 will gradually be decreased towards the sides of the jumper and there will be more and more stitches in stocking stitch. When there are not enough stitches in A.1 to work 6-stitch cables, work these stitches in stocking stitch, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 3 stitches evenly over the cable, do not decrease over the cables with 2 stitches (remember to increase on the outsides of A.1 and decrease on each side of the marker threads). When all of A.1 has been decreased there are 172-188-208-228-252-276 stitches on the round. Continue with stocking stitch. When the piece measures 15-15-15-15-15-15 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches increased) – READ INCREASE TIP! Increase every 5 cm a total of 4 times = 188-204-224-244-268-292 stitches. When the piece measures 34-34-34-34-34-34 cm increase 40-44-48-52-56-60 stitches evenly on round = 228-248-272-296-324-352 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Work rib, knit 2/ purl 2. Work rib for 2 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE: 
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle/double pointed needles. Place the 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm. In addition, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches mid under the sleeve = 68-76-84-88-92-96 stitches on the needle. Insert a marker thread in the middle of these new stitches – The piece is now measured from here! Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2-2-2-2-2-4 cm decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease every 3-2-1½ -1½-1½-1 cm a total of 12-15-18-19-20-21 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. When the sleeve measures 38-36-35-33-32-30 cm increase 4-6-8-6-8-10 stitches evenly on round = 48-52-56-56-60-64 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work rib, knit 2/ purl 2 over all stitches. Cast off when the sleeve measures 43-41-40-38-37-35 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Hallo. Hoe verdeel ik de mindering van 3 steken over A1onder de mouw aub? Doe ik dat rij per rij of minder ik per kabel 3 steken naast elkaar? Het is me niet duidelijk. Uitkijkend naar uw antwoord Sheila

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 16:16:

Dag Sheila,

In A.1 zitten 2 kabels van elk 6 steken breed. Deze minder je beide naar 3 steken, zodat je 21 steken over A.1 hebt.

Janne Birgitte Ueland 10.09.2018 - 15:17:

Det eg ikkje skjønner er korleis det blir felt tilsaman 12 masker per flette. Fire av desse maskene aukar ein med kasta etter A1. Då blir den reele fellinga berre åtte masker per runde, og ein vil då stå med åtte maskar for mykje når ein er ferdig med å felle A1

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 09:02:

Hei Janne. Du øker på yettersiden av A.1, men samtidig feller du ved merketrådenen slik at det blir en forskyvning av mønster uten endring i masketallet. De 6 maskene som felles i hver A.1 (3 masker over hver flette) kommer i tillegg til denne forskyvningen. God fornøyelse

Janne Birgitte 10.09.2018 - 12:11:

Det skal felles 24 masker tilsaman i sida på bolen med mønster. Eg er ferdig med å felle fletten og har då bare felt 16 masker. Masketalet vil jo ikkje minke på resten av fellinga, då det blir laga kast for same tall masker som er felt. Korleis skal eg felle dei siste åtte maskene?

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 15:14:

Hei Janne. Det stemmer at mønsteret forskyves utover til siden, og at masketallet i forbindelse med dette forblir det samme. Men det står videre at du feller 3 masker over hver 6-maskers flette = 6 masker felt per A.1 = 24 masker felt totalt på omgangen. God fornøyelse

Thank you for the wonderful videos on doing top down sweaters. I could never figure out how to do the underarm holes. Great slow motion too.

Loly Aguilar 14.04.2018 - 16:45:

Hola perdonar que os haga otra pregunta sobre este modelo ,pero me surge la duda cuando se termina de hacer la Sisa y empiesas a disminuir y aumentar ,vosotros decis hacer dos puntos juntos a cada lado del hilo marcador y tengo la duda si así quedará bien o habrá que hacer dos puntos juntos y pasar un punto tejer otro y pasar el punto no tejido por encima. Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 15.04.2018 kl. 20:16:

Hola Loly, el método que sugieres tú es el que se utiliza cuando queremos que las disminuciones formen una línea continua, como, por ejemplo, en este patrón, en las disminuciones para la manga. Estas disminuciones para la sisa no tienen que ser visibles, por lo que es preferible usar el método que ponemos nosotros, con 2 puntos juntos de derecho.

Loly Aguilar 08.04.2018 - 19:25:

Hola me gustaría saber si tiene alguna importancia como se acabe A1 en la Sisa a la hora de acabarlo en el cuerpo

DROPS Design 14.04.2018 kl. 12:39:

Hola Loly, no, no tiene ninguna importancia.

Gudrun Schneider 08.04.2018 - 13:07:

Hei, jeg får ikke økningen i sidene til å stemme. Det står at man skal lage et kast når det er to masker igjen til merketråden, og så strikke to masker hvor merketråden da skal være i midten. Men det er jo to masker TIL merketråden? Så hvis den skal være i midten, så må man enten strikke fire masker før neste kast eller lage det første kastet når det er EN maske igjen til tråden?

DROPS Design 13.04.2018 kl. 13:09:

Hei Gudrun. Du har helt rett i at dette ikke stemmer. Oppskriften har nå blitt endret, og du skal strikke til det gjenstår 1 maske før merketråden, ikke 2. Takk for beskjed, og god fornøyelse

Anna Ellnemo Rejnö 07.04.2018 - 17:01:

Hej! Jag stickar i stl xl. När jag ska börja med att minska två maskor vid markörerna och öka på på yttersidan av varje A1 så är det 252 maskor på varvet. Maskantalet förblir ju detsamma. Jag har även minskat tre maskor vid flätorna. Det står att efter detta så ska det vara 228 maskor på varvet. Det stämmer inte. Jag har 240 maskor på varvet. Dvs det är minskat 12 maskor tillsammans vid flätorna. Hur ska det kunna bli 128 maskor? Jag kan inte hitta felet?

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 13:56:

Hei Anna. Du skal felle 3 masker i begge 6-maskers flettene i A.1 = 6 masker felt per A.1. Det er totalt 4 rapporter av A.1 = 24 masker felt på omgangen og du sitter igjen med 228 masker på pinnen. God fornøyelse

FORTIN 29.03.2018 - 15:56:

Re-bonjour, excusez-moi, j'ai vu dans les explications d'une autre personne qu'il fallait diminuer 8x6m, donc, je tricote les 6m de chaque torsade 2 par 2 = 24 m diminuées

FORTIN Nicole 29.03.2018 - 15:05:

Bonjour, Je ne saisis pas bien, comme d'autres, comment on diminue 3 m au dessus de chaque torsade de 2x6 m end + 1m env = 13m....je répartis 3 diminutions dans ces 13 m ? merci pour votre réponse
