There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.


The jumper is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up. The piece is divided when you decrease for the armhole and the back and front piece are finished back and forth separately. Knit up stitches around the armhole for sleeves and continue working in the round with double pointed needles down the sleeve. The collar is worked with short circular needle to finish.

Cast on 99-107-115-123-131-143 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm and Eskimo. Knit 1 round, then work rib in the different sizes as follows:
* Knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* over the first 12-16-20-24 stitches, knit 2, work A.1 (= 25 stitches), * knit 2, purl 2 * over the remaining 60-72-84-92 stitches.
* Purl 2, knit 2 *, work from *-* over the first 16-20 stitches, work A.1 (= 25 stitches), * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* over the next 64-76 stitches and finish with knit 2 stitches.

Continue rib in this way until the piece measures 6 cm. Change to circular needle size 10 mm. Work 0-0-0-0-0-1 stitch stocking stitch, the round now begins here, insert 1 marker thread (the round is now displaced 0-0-0-0-0-1 stitch). The next round is worked as follows: Work stocking stitch over the first 14-16-18-20-22-25 stitches, A.2 (= 25 stitches) over A.1, stocking stitch over the next 14-16-18-20-22-25 stitches, insert 1 marker thread (= front piece), work stocking stitch over the last 46-50-54-58-62-68 stitches.
Continue the pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 35-36-37-38-39-40 cm cast off stitches for armhole on the next round as follows (adjust so that the next round is 1st-3rd-5th-7th-9th-11th or 13th round in A.2): Cast off the first 2-2-2-2-2-3 stitches on the round, work the next 49-53-57-61-65-69 stitches as before (= front piece), cast off the next 4-4-4-4-4-6 stitches, work until there are 2-2-2-2-2-3 stitches left, cast off these stitches. Cut the strand. Each part is now finished separately.

= 42-46-50-54-58-62 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch over all stitches (the first row is worked from the wrong side). When the piece measures 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm from where you cast off stitches for armhole (the piece measures a total of 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm) cast off the middle 16-16-18-18-20-20 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately = 13-15-16-18-19-21 stitches on the shoulder. Continue with stocking stitch and decrease 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 12-14-15-17-18-20 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm from where you cast off stitches for armhole (the piece measures a total of 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm). Cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

= 49-53-57-61-65-69 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 48-50-50-52-52-54 cm (the first row is worked from the wrong side). Now place stitches on 1 thread for the neck as follows: Work 16-18-19-21-22-24 stitches as before, work the next 17-17-19-19-21-21 stitches as before but decrease 7 stitches evenly over these stitches, then place them on a thread (= 10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches on the thread), work the remaining 16-18-19-21-22-24 stitches as before.
Each shoulder is now finished separately. Continue with knit and purl as before over the remaining stitches in A.1 and cast off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 12-14-15-17-18-20 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, match with the back piece. Cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

Sew shoulder seams with grafting stitches.

The sleeve are worked back and forth, top down. Knit up 34-36-38-40-42-44 stitches along the armhole in the outermost stitch/row with circular needles size 10 mm and Eskimo. Work stocking stitch. When the piece measures 4 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of the piece (= 2 stitches decreased) Decrease in this way every 9-7-5-6-5-4 cm a total of 5-6-7-6-7-8 times = 24-24-24-28-28-28 stitches. When the piece measures 45-44-43-41-40-39 cm, change to circular needles size 9 mm and work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2). When the sleeve measures 50-49-48-46-45-44 cm, change to double pointed needles size 10 mm and cast off with knit over all stitches.

The piece is worked in the round. Knit up 56-56-60-60-64-64 stitches around the neck (including the stitches on the thread) on short circular needle size 9 mm and Eskimo. Purl 1 round and knit 1 round, then work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2) for 12 cm. Cast off LOOSELY with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Kunt u me uitleggen hoe ik 0-0-0-0-1 steek tricotsteek moet breien? Ik begrijp het niet.

Geke 02.10.2018 - 19:57:

Ik begrijp niet wat 0-0-0-0-0-1 steek tricot betekent. Kunt u me dat uitleggen?

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 11:59:

Dag Geke, In maat S brei je 0 steken in tricot, in maat M 0 steken enz. De getallen staan in volgorde van de maten en je hoeft dus alleen maar in de grootste maat een steek in tricotsteek te breien.

Sur le modèle cosy weekend le diagramme A1 n est pas clair pour moi après les 16 mailles alternant 2 mailles endroit et 2 mailles endroit puis 2 mailles endroit dois je faire 1 maille envers sur endroit et une maille endroit sur envers ou deux mailles envers sur endroit et le rang suivant deux mailles endroit sur envers merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 kl. 15:52:

Bonjour Mme Katona, vous tricotez 2 m endroit/2 m envers sur les 16 m suivantes (= 8 fois), puis 2 m endroit, puis A.1 (= 25 mailles soit 2 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 1 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env, 2 m end, 2 m env), puis 2 m end/2 m env sur les 72 dernières mailles. Comme on tricote en rond, vous tricoterez ces mailles comme elles se présentent sur l'endroit = à l'end ou à l'env sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Hei, ønsker å strikke Cozy Weekend / DROPS 181-13 . Den er i et tykt ullgarn (Eskimo) men jeg kunne tenkt meg noe som ikke er så varmt - finnes det noe tilsvarende i et blandingsprodukt typ bomull + noe annet?

DROPS Design 15.03.2018 kl. 08:42:

Hei He, Hvis du søker på nett sida på oppskrifter og deretter genser får du mange forskjellige mønster som bruker forskjellige garn. Du kunne også bruke en annen type garn med den oppskriften, men da må du regne ut hvor mange masker og pinne størrelse du trenger for å få riktig strikkefasthet God fornøyelse!

Maija Palkeinen 24.02.2018 - 20:44:

I’m confused in Cozy Weekend Sweater pattern 181-13 when it says “a.2 (=25 stitches) OVER a.1” Does this mean that after I complete the 6 cm of ribbing that I begin the Cable pattern from A.1 and work up repeating the pattern every 18 rows or do I forget about the a.1 section until I reach the top of the pattern again? Help!

DROPS Design 24.02.2018 kl. 23:15:

Dear Maia, you start with the A.1 pattern (which is 25 stitches, and it is the ribbing). Then, when the ribbing is about 6 cm, on the 25 stitches of the A.1 pattern, you knit the A.2 pattern (cable) and repeat the rows of the A.2 pattern, no ribbing in between, just the cables. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Hallo, wird der Kragen tatsächlich bei einer Länge von 2cm gelassen, oder ist es ein Tippfehler und es müssen 20cm sein? So sieht es zumindest auf dem Foto aus. Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 09:10:

Liebe Frau Blanke, danke für den Hinweis, Kragen wird 12 cm im Rippenmuster gestrickt, Anleitung wird korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Skøn trøje❤️Har lavet 5 stk. Og er nu i gang med den 6 til mig selv i julerød❤️

De omschrijving van de te gebruiken materialen is niet helemaal consistent. Wil je volgens de omschrijving van het patroon breien, dan zijn aan extra naalden nodig: korte rondbreinaald nr. 9 voor hals, breipennen zonder knop nr. 10 voor inbreien mouwen. Breipennen zonder knop nr. 9 zijn dan niet nodig.

Salve non ho mai usato i ferri a doppia punta.non so a cosa servono e come vanno usati.se mi piace un modello,lo evito x questo.come potete aiutarmi?buona giornata

DROPS Design 09.10.2017 kl. 08:39:

Buongiorno Michela. I ferri a doppia punta spesso vengono usati per lavorare in tondo quando le maglie sono poche. Può sostituirli con dei ferri circolari con cavo corto, oppure se preferisce, può usare ferri circolari con cavo lungo e, quando le maglie sono troppo poche, lavorare con la tecnica del magic loop, descritta nel video sotto. Buon lavoro!
