Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 218 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 10) = 21.8. In this example, increase alternately after approx. every 21st and 22nd stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round, work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
If you are decreasing (in this example) knit together alternately approx. every 20th and 21st stitch and every 21st and 22nd stitch.

INCREASE TIP (for sides in body and sleeves):
Start 1 stitch before the marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these two stitches), make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. The new stitches are subsequently worked in stockinette stitch.

BINDING OFF TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch at the same time as binding off as follows: Knit 2 stitches together, knit 1 stitch, pass over (bind off)
(= 1 extra stitch decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the armholes, then the front and back pieces are worked back and forth separately. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles as far as the armholes, then the sleeves are worked back and forth. To finish, the sleeves are sewn into the armhole and shoulders on front and back pieces.

BODY:
Cast on 218-230-246-264-280-298-314 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and Merino Extra Fine. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above! Then work rib (knit 1 /purl 1). When the piece measures 5 cm / 2'' work 1 ridge, AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 10-10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches evenly on the first round – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP= 228-240-256-276-292-312-328 stitches. Insert 2 markers in the piece, one at the beginning of the round and one after 114-120-128-138-146-156-164 stitches (= in each side). Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work PATTERN as follows – see description above: * Work 20-23-27-27-31-31-35 stitches stockinette stitch, A.1 (= 22 stitches), A.2 (= 10 stitches) over the next 30-30-30-40-40-50-50 stitches (= 3-3-3-4-4-5-5 repeats in width), A.3 (= 22 stitches), 20-23-27-27-31-31-35 stitches stockinette stitch, the marker sits here *, work from *-* 1 more time. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue the pattern in this way. When the piece measures 9 cm / 3½'' increase 1 stitch on both sides of the markers in each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 6-8-8-9-9-9-10 cm / 4'' a total of 5 times = 248-260-276-296-312-332-348 stitches. When the piece measures 38-47-48-49-50-51-52 cm / 18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½'' bind off 6 stitches for the armhole in each side (bind off 3 stitches on both side of the markers in each side) and continue each piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 118-124-132-142-150-160-168 stitches. The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle. Continue with pattern, stockinette stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side, AT THE SAME TIME continue to bind off for armhole at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: 2 stitches 3-3-4-4-4-4-5 times and 1 stitch 1-0-1-1-2-2-2 times = 104-112-114-124-130-140-144 stitches. When the piece measures 49-59-61-63-65-67-69 cm / 23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8'' bind off, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 20-20-20-22-18-24-24 stitches evenly over the stitches in diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3 – read BINDING OFF TIP.

FRONT PIECE:
= 118-124-132-142-150-160-168 stitches. Continue with pattern, stockinette stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, AT THE SAME TIME as bind off for armhole as for back piece = 104-112-114-124-130-140-144 stitches. When the piece measures 46-56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' decrease 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches evenly over the middle 40-40-40-48-48-48-48 stitches before these stitches are placed on a thread for the neck (= 30-30-30-36-36-36 stitches on thread). The shoulders are now finished separately. On the next row from the neck bind off 2 stitches = 30-34-35-36-39-44-46 stitches.
When the piece measures 49-59-61-63-65-67-69 cm / 23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8'' (adjust to match the back piece) bind off, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 5-5-4-5-3-6-6 stitches evenly over the 15-15-15-16-16-21-21 stitches towards the neck – remember BINDING OFF TIP.
Work the other shoulder in the same way.

RIGHT SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 56-58-60-62-64-66-68 stitches with double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and Merino Extra Fine. Work 2 ridges. Then work rib (= knit 1 /purl 1) until the piece measures 10 cm / 4''. Work 1 ridge, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 5 stitches evenly on row = 51-53-55-57-59-61-63 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and work pattern on the next round as follows: Stockinette stitch over the first 4-5-6-7-8-9-10 stitches, work A.4 over the next 42 stitches, work the first stitch in A.4, 4-5-6-7-8-9-10 stitches stockinette stitch. Continue this pattern upwards. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 13-12-13-12-12-14-13 cm / 5"-4 3/4"-5"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5½"-5'' increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker – remember INCREASE TIP! Increase in this way every 2-2½-2-2-2-1½-1½ cm / 3/4"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4"-½"-½'' a total of 14-15-16-17-18-19-20 times = 79-83-87-91-95-99-103 stitches. When the piece measures 45-50-50-49-49-48-48 cm / 19¾''-19¾''-19¼''-19¼''-19''-19'' bind off 6 stitches mid under the sleeve (bind off 3 stitches on each side of the marker). Then work back and forth on the needle AT THE SAME TIME as you bind off for sleeve cap at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: 2 stitches 2-4-6-7-9-10-12 times and 1 stitch 12-10-8-8-6-6-4 times = 41 stitches left in all sizes. The piece measures 55-60-60-60-60-60-60 cm / 21½"-23½"-23½"-23½"-23½"-23½''. NOW YOU MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue with pattern over the remaining stitches until the piece measures 12-14-13-15-17-18-19 cm / 4 3/4"-5½"-5"-6"-6 3/7"-7"-7½''. Then you bind off at the beginning of each row from the right side as follows: 19 stitches 1 time AT THE SAME TIME as 8 of these 19 stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 before they are bind off, 3 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 1 time. Work 3 rows without decreases. Bind off 1 stitch on the next row = 16 stitches left in all sizes. Continue working until the piece measures 19-21-22-24-26-27-28 cm / 7½"-8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9½"-10 1/4"-10½"-11''. The whole sleeve measures approx. 74-81-82-84-86-87-88 cm / 29"-32"-32 1/4"-33"-34"-34 1/4"-34½''.

LEFT SLEEVE:
Worked as for right sleeve, but decreases at top are worked in opposite side, i.e. at the beginning of every row from the wrong side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the sleeves together mid back inside the bind off edge of each sleeve. Sew the sleeves to front and back piece on body in the outermost stitch as follows: Sew from the armhole and up along shoulder on back piece to mid back. Repeat on the other side. Sew in that same way from armhole and up along shoulder to the neck on the front piece. Repeat on the other side.

NECKLINE:
Knit up 94-94-108-108-108-108-108 stitches around the neck (including the stitches from the thread) with short circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and Merino Extra Fine. Work 2 ridges, AT THE SAME TIME as you increase on the last round 22-22-26-26-26-26-26 stitches evenly = 116-116-134-134-134-134-134 stitches. Then work rib (= knit 1 /purl 1). When the rib measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' work 1 ridge. Bind off. Fold the neck double and fasten on the inside, ridge to ridge.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, leider verstehe ich die Anleitung beim Abnehmen für den Halsauschnitt beim Rückenteil nicht " bei einer Länge von .... cm abketten. Gleichzeitig ..... Maschen..... abnehmen." Wieviel Maschen abketten? Über welche Höhe die Abnahmen verteilen? Auch die Anleitung für das Vorderteil ist für mich nicht ganz klar verständlich. Für Hilfe wäre ich sehr dankbar. Viele Grüße D. Melka

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 12:49:

Liebe Frau Melka, alle Maschen werden hier abgekettet, aber damit die Breite richtig bleibt (Zöpfe brauchen mehr Maschen in der Breite), soll man gleichmäßig verteilt abnehmen - wie in diesem Video erklärt und wie unter TIPP ZUM ABKETTEN beschrieben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Martine Dutour 16.01.2019 - 11:50:

Je suis surprise de ne plus trouver ma liste de favoris ? Y a-t-il eu une modification ? Par avance merci !

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 13:08:

Bonjour Mme Dutour, elles sont provisoirement inaccessibles mais seront très vite de retour, merci pour votre patience. Bon tricot!

Tina 06.01.2019 - 16:54:

Hallo, Habe eine Frage bzgl des Ärmels. Werden auf der rechten Seite beim rechten Ärmel 19 M auf einmal abgenommen und dann auf der re Seite 1x 3 M und 1x 2 M, oder die 1x3 und 1x 2 Maschen auf der linken Seite? Danke für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 11:28:

Liebe Tina, die 1 x 19 M sowie die 1 x 3 M, 1 x 2 M werden alle am Anfang einer Hinreihe abgekettet (= auf der rechten Seite bei der rechten Ärmel - von der Vorderseite gesehen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Diane 17.12.2018 - 09:25:

At 15 cm (75 cm from the beginning) I am to bind off 19 of the 41 stitches. Will that not make the top of the sleeve asymmetrical? or is the saddle only for the front part of the sweater and not for the back. Please clarify. A diagram of the top part of the sleeve would sure be helpful.

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 10:23:

Dear Diane, these stitches will shape the neck, on left sleeve you will cast off at the beg of row from WS (instead at of the beg of row from RS) and this will be then symetrical. Happy knitting!

Evelynelouaked 16.12.2018 - 15:34:

Bonjour, pourriez vous me indiquer comment on diminue les 19 m. du haut des manches faut il les répartir sur le rang et seulement tricoter 8m deux par deux ?

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 10:04:

Bonjour! Avant de rabattre nous avons 41 m dans toutes les tailles. Maintenant on diminue 1 fois 19 m, EN MEME TEMPS tricoter 8 de ces mailles ensemble 2 par 2 à l’endroit avant de les rabattre. Comment le faire vous troverez ICI. Bon tricot!

Diane 16.12.2018 - 03:39:

The diagram shows the shoulder saddle being 15 cm long (size L). On the picture, the ridges in the saddles are all straight. Does that indicate that the decreases from 41 to 19 stitches happen on the same row? After how many cm?

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 10:02:

Dear Diane, in size L you work pattern straight for 15 cm (= shoulder) then bind off at the beg from each row from RS (see previous answer below) to shape neckline. Happy knitting!

Diane 14.12.2018 - 22:07:

Instructions for top of the sleeve are ambiguous. Length is 60 cm at 41 stitches. Another 15 cm would be 75 cm from beginning. You must decrease from 41 to 16 stitches over the next 9 cm to wind up with a total length of 84. If I decrease 1 stitch at the beginning of the each of the next 25 rows, I wind up with 16 stitches, and pretty close to 84 cm in total length. Is that close to what I should be doing?

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 09:14:

Dear Diane, after sleeves measures 15 cm (= 75 cm in total), bind off at the beg of each row from RS (on the right side of piece seen from RS on right sleeve): bind off 19 sts, work to end of this RS row (41-19=22 sts remain) , turn and work WS row, turn. Bind off 3 sts at the beg of next row from RS (=19 sts), work to end of row, turn and work WS row. Bind off 2 sts at the beg of next row from RS (17 sts), turn and work 3 rows. Bind off 1 st at the beg of next row from RS (= 16 sts remain). Happy knitting!

Claire 13.12.2018 - 14:16:

Bonjour Merci pour la grande variété de modéles que vous proposez . Par contre je rencontre un problème avec le haut des manches . Je ne comprends pas les dernières diminutions ( à partir de 19 m ) . pouvez vous m'aider ? Merci

DROPS Design 13.12.2018 kl. 14:49:

Bonjour Claire, pour la même largeur, il faudra plus de mailles pour des torsades, donc en rabattant ces 19 m, on va diminuer en même temps 8 m - comme le montre cette vidéo, ainsi la largeur des mailles rabattues sera correcte. On continue ensuite à rabattre tous les 2 rangs sur l'endroit 1 x 3 m et 1 x 2 m, on tricote 3 rangs et on rabat 1 m au début du rang suivant sur l'endroit = il reste 16 m que l'on tricote jusqu'à la hauteur indiquée. Bon tricot!

Giedi 11.12.2018 - 21:25:

Jeg har strikket arbejdet rundt 50 cm og skal nu dele arbejdet og samtidigt tage ind til ærmegab, altså strikke frem og tilbage, som opskriften siger. Jeg kan slet ikke forestille mig at skulle strikke mønster med snoninger "bagvendt", altså fra arbejdets vrangside. Har jeg misforstået det hele, eller er det virkelig meningen?

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 08:06:

Hei Giedi. Det stemmer. Se til at du avpasser slik at flettingene gjøres fra rettsiden, så blir vrangsiden kun rette og vrange masker. God fornøyelse

Wallerich 11.12.2018 - 16:53:

Serait-il possible d’avoir une vidéo ou photo pour le montage ( couture) des manches svp. Surtout une photo du dos, je ne comprends pas bien jusqu’où doit aller la patte de l’épaule et comment l’intégrer après au col. Merci

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 08:22:

Bonjour Mme Wallerich, regardez bien le schéma des mesures, assemblez d'abord entre elles les mailles rabattues des manches puis assemblez ce côté des deux manches le long des mailles rabattues en haut du dos, et faites la couture le long des emmanchures dos/devant. La partie la plus courte du haut des manches se place le long de chaque côté du devant (de chaque côté de l'encolure). Pour le col, relevez les mailles le long de la manche gauche (à partir du milieu dos), de l'encolure devant puis le long de la manche droite. Bon tricot!
