Work until 1 stitch remains before A.1:
Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, make 1 yarn over, work A.1. Knit yarn overs twisted on next round to avoid holes. Work the increased stitches in stocking stitch.

YOKE:
Cast on 84-88-92-92-96-96 stitches on a short circular needle size 4 mm with Merino Extra Fine or Sky. Knit 1 round, then work rib = knit 2/purl 2. Work 3 cm rib. Knit 1 round while decreasing 12-12-12-12-12-12 stitches evenly = 72-76-80-80-84-84 stitches. Then work as follows from mid back: Work 7-8-9-9-10-10 stitches in stocking stitch (= half back piece), A.1 (= 8 stitches), 6 stitches in stocking stitch (= sleeve), A.2 (= 8 stitches), 14-16-18-18-20-20 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), A.1, 6 stitches in stocking stitch (= sleeve), A.2, 7-8-9-9-10-10 stitches in stocking stitch (= half back piece).

ALL SIZES:
After all increases are done there are 212-224-236-248-252-264 stitches on round. Work pattern as before until piece measures 13-15-15-17-17-18 cm from mid back. Work next round as follows: Work the first 31-33-35-37-38-40 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 44-46-48-50-50-52 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-6-8-8 new stitches (= in the side under sleeve), work the next 62-66-70-74-76-80 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 44-46-48-50-50-52 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-6-8-8 new stitches (= in the side under sleeve), work the last 31-33-35-37-38-40 stitches (= half back piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 136-144-152-160-168-176 stitches. Continue working in stocking stitch over all stitches. When piece measures 17-19-23-25-29-32 cm from division, knit 1 round while increasing 28-28-32-32-36-36 stitches evenly = 164-172-184-192-204-212 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

SLEEVE:
Slip the stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles/a short circular needle size 4 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-6-6-8-8 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 50-52-54-56-58-60 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread mid under sleeve. When piece measures 3 cm from division, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 2-3-3-3½-3½-4 cm 7-7-8-8-9-9 times in total = 36-38-38-40-40-42 stitches. Continue in stocking stitch until sleeve measures 19-22-26-30-35-39 cm. Knit 1 round while increasing 8-6-6-8-8-10 stitches evenly = 44-44-44-48-48-52 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Sleeve measures approx. 23-26-30-34-39-43 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Pyha jeg er lidt forvirret, forstår jeg det korrekt, når jeg tager en m ud (på hveranden p) før og efter hver snoning? Eller er det 2 m? På forhånd tak.

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 09:05:

Hej, ja du tager ud på hver 2. omgang. I den mindste størrelse tager du 4 masker ud på både ryg og forstykke de første 4 gange. Men i de andre størrelser tager du 2 masker ud på både ryg og forstykke (altså 1 maske på hver side af alle snoninger - ialt 8 udtagninger) God fornøjelse!

Hend 03.02.2019 - 14:34:

Hello ...i'm doing the sweater back and forth and i'm at the stage after increases , where i'm having trouble with slipping the sleeve stitches as they are at the beginning of my row .. should i cut the yarn ? Is there any other way ? Thanks a lot.

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 12:33:

Dear Hend, you can then work 1 row over the sts on sleeve before slipping them on a thread. Happy knitting!

Hend 30.01.2019 - 14:31:

Hello.. can it be knitted back and forth NOT in the round ? Would there be any changes to the pattern ? Thanks in advance .

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 16:17:

Dear Hend, you will find here relevant informations for adjusting a pattern into straight needles. Happy knitting!

Vorrei sapere in che modo aumentare in maniera diversa sul davanti /dietro e sulle maniche Grazie

DROPS Design 27.01.2019 kl. 19:12:

Buonasera Maria, per gli aumenti deve seguire le indicazioni riportate per le diverse taglie: è spiegato come aumentare sul corpo e sulle maniche. Buon lavoro!

Ute 18.04.2018 - 21:01:

Ich möchte den schönen Pulli für einen kleinen Jungen stricken. Auf der Schemazeichnung schauts so aus, als wäre das Rückenteil ein wenig höher als das Vorderteil. Beide gleich hoch mag ich bei mir nicht. Aber nach der Anleitung ist das Vorder- und das Rückenteil gleich, oder irre ich mich? Danke für ein bißchen Hilfe.

DROPS Design 19.04.2018 kl. 09:33:

Liebe Ute, in diesem Modell werden beide Vorder- und Rückenteil gleich hoch. Einige verkürtzten Reihen für eine Erhöhung können Sie auch stricken, hier finden Sie einige Modellen mit Erhöhung von denen Sie sich inspirieren können. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Emilie JOUBERT 02.02.2018 - 22:47:

Bonsoir, j'ai commandé 7 pelotes(350g) de merino extra fine, pour faire la taille 12 ans, comme préconisé, et j'ai pu tricoter le pull entier, sauf....une manche entière!!😱 mon échantillon est parfait et les dimensions du pull parfaites. Je vais devoir refaire une commande pour une pelote voire deux et payer le port...

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 08:50:

Bonjour Mme Joubert, merci pour l'information, nos stylistes vont vérifier de leur côté. Bon tricot!

Emilie JOUBERT 24.01.2018 - 18:48:

Bonjour, n'y aurait-il pas une faute au début de l'empiècement il est dit que l'on doit prendre les aig n 4 pour faire le col en côtes 2/2. ?? N'est-ce pas plutôt les aig 3,5?

DROPS Design 25.01.2018 kl. 08:10:

Bonjour Mme Joubert, les côtes du col se tricotent en 4, mais celles du bas du pull et des manches se tricotent en 3,5. Bon tricot!

Emilie JOUBERT 24.01.2018 - 18:22:

J'ai commandé le bleu forêt n°31 merino extra fine et la couleur ne correspond pas à ce que l'on voit sur cette photo, elle est en réalité (belle) mais beaucoup plus "terne". Un peu déçue... Même si ce n'est pas grave.

DROPS Design 25.01.2018 kl. 08:53:

Bonjour Mme Joubert, n'oubliez pas que les couleurs vont être différentes d'un écran à l'autre, et il peut y avoir également parfois des différentes en fonction du bain. Bon tricot!

Emilie JOUBERT 20.01.2018 - 18:13:

Je comprends que cela est pour la taille 2 ans, la 1ère consigne? J'avoue que le modèle est un peu confondant...

Emilie JOUBERT 20.01.2018 - 18:08:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas pourquoi il y a 2 consignes différentes d'augmentation pour les manches??? Merci! AUGMENTER........ 14 fois tous les 2 tours, puis 1 fois tous les 4 tours (= 15 fois au total). ….............….............. AUGMEnter ........11-12-12-12-12 fois tous les 2 tours, et 5-5-6-6-7 fois tous les 4 tours (16-17-18-18-19 fois au total).

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 09:25:

Bonjour Mme Joubert, pour que le pull ait la bonne forme, on augmente différemment pour le devant/pour le dos et pour les manches. En taille 2 ans, on va augmenter pour le devant et le dos: 2 m avant A.1/après A.2: 4 x tous les 2 tours puis 1 m avant A.1/après A.2: 12 x tous les 2 tours. En même temps, augmentez pour les manches: 1 m après A.1/avant A.2: 14 x tous les 2 tours et 1 x tous les 4 tours. Bon tricot!
