Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. 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.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

DECREASE TIP-1:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 146 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 24) = 6.1. In this example knit approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together.

FALSE ENGLISH RIB (worked in the round):
ROUND 1: Work * 1 stitch in garter stitch, make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch purlwise *, work from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 2: Work * 1 stitch in garter stitch, knit yarn over and slipped stitch from previous round together *, work from *-* the entire round.
Repeat rounds 1 and 2.

FALSE ENGLISH RIB (worked back and forth):
ROW 1 (= right side): Work * 1 stitch in garter stitch, make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch purlwise *, work from *-* until 1 stitch remains, finish with 1 stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work 1 stitch in garter stitch, * purl yarn over and slipped stitch from previous row together, work 1 stitch in garter stitch *, work from *-* the entire row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2.

CAST OFF TIP-2:
When decreasing over false English rib, the yarn overs on 1st round/row are not counted as stitches but casted off together with stitch on 2nd round/row.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

CAST-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a needle 1 size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle up to armholes. Then work front and back piece back and forth on circular needle separately. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

BODY:
Cast on 146-156-166-180-190-204 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm with Air. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 round and decrease 24-26-28-30-32-34 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 above = 122-130-138-150-158-170 stitches. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round and 1 marker after 61-65-69-75-79-85 stitches (= the sides). Then work FALSE ENGLISH RIB - see explanation above. Continue like this and move the markers upwards when working. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm, cast off 4 stitches in each side for armholes (2 stitches on each side of both marker treads) - read CAST OFF TIP-2. Finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 57-61-65-71-75-81 stitches. Continue in false English rib but now work back and forth on circular needle - read FALSE ENGLISH RIB. Continue to work until piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm. Now cast off the middle 15-15-17-17-17-19 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue pattern as before and cast off 1 stitch on next row from the neck = 20-22-23-26-28-30 stitches remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm and cast off - read CAST-OFF TIP above. Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 57-61-65-71-75-81 stitches. Continue in false English rib but now work back and forth on circular needle. Continue to work until piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm. Now slip the middle 11-11-13-13-13-15 stitches on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue pattern as before and cast off for neck at the beginning of every row from neck as follows: Cast off 1 stitch 3 times = 20-22-23-26-28-30 stitches remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm and cast off. Work the other shoulder the same way.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 25-26-28-29-29-31 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm and work 7 ridges in GARTER STITCH – see explanation above. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round = mid under sleeve. Then work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 8-8-9-8-8-10 cm, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - READ INCREASE TIP above. Increase like this every 3½-3-2½-2½-2-1½ cm 9-10-10-11-12-12 times in total = 43-46-48-51-53-55 stitches. When piece measures 38-37-36-36-33-31 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), cast off the middle 4 stitches mid under sleeve and work a small sleeve cap back and forth on circular needle. Work in stocking stitch and cast off at beginning of every row in each side as follows: Cast off 6-6-6-7-7-7 stitches 2 times, then cast off the remaining stitches. Sleeve measures approx. 40-39-38-37-35-33 cm (when garment is worn the shoulder will stretch approx. 5 cm out to the side because of pattern, and the sleeve will stop approx. at the wrist). Work another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside cast-off edge. Sew in sleeves.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from right side approx. 48 to 56 stitches around the neck (including stitches on stitch holder at the front) on a double pointed needles size 9 mm. Purl 1 round while adjusting number of stitches to 48-52-52-52-52-56. Work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 5 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Jeg er endelig nået til halsen, men den driller mig vildt meget. Jeg samler i alt 48 masker op, men når jeg lukker af bliver hullet simpelthen for lille. Er der andre fif end større pinde til aflukning? Bliver det løsere hvis jeg laver en sidste runde enten i ret eller vrang og slutter?

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 09:57:

Hej Belinda, du kan vælge at tage ud, så halsen strikkes over flere masker. Hvis du ikke vil det, så kan du samtidig som du lukker af, lave et omslag efter hver 6.maske, som du da også lukker af som alle de andre masker. God fornøjelse!

Malene Nielsen 23.10.2018 - 07:20:

Når jeg følger anvisningerne på mønsteret kan jeg ikke få det til at passe. det ligner ikke falsk patent. Er der en fejl i jeres forklaring

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 15:59:

Hej Malene, jo opskriften stemmer. hver 2. maske strikker du i retstrik, det vil sige ret på 1.omgang og vrang på 2.omgang, se også vores video. God fornøjelse!

Åshild 17.04.2018 - 16:32:

Takk for svar.Jeg ga opp 😊Syns det var vanskelig å forstå videoen ..og når jeg fulgte oppskriften ble det bare surr😊Fant en annen forklaring på you tube som var enklere😊

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 10:35:

Hej Åshild, ja men det vigtigste er at du fik til det :)

Åshild 16.04.2018 - 12:22:

Jeg ser at de to på 2 omg strikkes rett sammen nå ...mens det er rillemasken som strikkes på en merkelig måte ..er ikke rillestrikk bare rett og vrang annenhver gang?

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 14:08:

Hei Åshild. Jeg regner med det er videoen med halvpatent du refererer til. Det er helt riktig at rillemasker på rundpinne er annenhver omgang rett og vrang, og at rillemaskene her strikkes vrang på 2 omgang - det gjør de også i videoen. Videre strikkes kastet og den løse masken rett sammen. God fornøyelse!

Sara 16.09.2017 - 17:24:

Hej! Jag försöker få ihop varv 2 - tittat på videon och läst mönstret MÅNGA gånger. Rundsticka gäller det. om jag på varv två ska göra "rätstickning" tolkar jag det som att den ska stickas avig. Men på filmen görs något helt annat. Kan ni vara snälla och hjälpa mig förstå - TACK!

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 16:29:

Hej, då du ska sticka rätstickning runt på rundsticka så ska du sticka det andra varvet avigt, precis som du tolkat mönstret.

Astrid 12.09.2017 - 16:18:

Jag tycker det är jobbigt att sticka med så grova stickor. hur påverkas garnmängden om man väljer att sticka tex med nr 5? mått och stickfasthet kan jag räkna ut.

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 15:40:

Hej Astrid, titta på en annan modell med patent i Air så ser du garnmängden i din storlek. Lycka till!

Juel Hess 04.09.2017 - 02:31:

How do I figure out sizing with only X's to instruct?

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 11:06:

Dear Mrs Hess, you will find at the bottom of the page a measurement chart with all measurements for each size. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Elke 18.08.2017 - 13:53:

Bei einer Maschenprobe von 12 Maschen/15 Reihen mit Nadelstärke 9 soll die Air hier doch bestimmt doppelfädig verstrickt werden? Aber damit sind die Angaben zum Verbrauch dann sicher auch nicht korrekt?

DROPS Design 08.09.2017 kl. 14:02:

Liebe Elke, der Pullover wird nur mit 1 Faden Air gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
