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 THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

MOSS STITCH:
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit. Repeat round 2.

DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 312 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 48) = 6.5. In this example, knit together alternately every 5th and 6th stitch and every 6th and 7th stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the garment losing its elasticity when working pattern it is important that the strands at the back of the piece are not tight. You can work pattern with a larger needle size if this is a problem.

INCREASE TIP:
Start 1 stitch before the marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

CASTING OFF TIP:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can use a ½ needle size larger when casting off.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the armholes, then the front and back pieces are worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 162-180-192-216-234-264 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and light grey. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches MOSS STITCH - see description above *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work like this for 5 cm. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 22-26-26-34-38-44 stitches evenly on round - read DECREASE TIP above = 140-154-166-182-196-220 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round and 1 marker after 70-77-83-91-98-110 stitches (= the sides) and allow the markers to follow you work upwards. Continue with stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 9 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads in both sides (= 4 stitches increased on the round) – read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 8th-9th-10th-10th-8th-9th round a total of 2-2-2-2-3-3 times = 148-162-174-190-208-232 stitches. Work 1 round where you increase 4-6-2-2-0-0 stitches evenly on round = 152-168-176-192-208-232 stitches. When piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm work pattern as follows:

Work A.1 in the round (= 19-21-22-24-26-29 repeats of 8 stitches) – read PATTERN and KNITTING TIP above. On the last round in A.1 increase 1-0-1-0-2-2 stitches evenly on round = 153-168-177-192-210-234 stitches. When the whole of A.1 has been completed, work A.2 in the round (= 51-56-59-64-70-78 repeats of 3 stitches). On the last round in A.2 increase 15-0-15-0-6-6 stitches evenly on round = 168-168-192-192-216-240 stitches. When the whole of A.2 has been completed in height, work pattern in the different sizes as follows:

Sizes S, M and XXL:
Work A.3a (= 18 stitches) 1 time, work A.3b (= 24 stitches) 6-6-8 times and A.3c (= 6 stitches) 1 time. On the last round in A.3 increase 0-6-0 stitches evenly on round = 168-174-216 stitches.

Sizes L, XL and XXXL:
Work A.3b in the round to end of round (= 8-8-10 repeats of 24 stitches). On the last round in A.3 increase 0-12-0 stitches evenly on round = 192-204-240 stitches.

All sizes:
When the whole of A.3 has been completed in height, work the first 3 rounds in diagram A.4 (= 56-58-64-68-72-80 repeats of 3 stitches). The piece measures approximately 42-43-44-45-46-47cm.
The next round is worked as follows: Work the 4th round in A.4 and cast off 3-3-3-9-9-9 stitches in each side for armhole (= 1-1-1-4-4-4 stitches before/2-2-2-5-5-5 stitches after both markers). The front and back pieces are now worked separately back and forth.

BACK PIECE:
= 81-84-93-93-99-111 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side). Work pattern back and forth from the 5th round in A.4 as follows:
1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH - see description above, A.4 until there are 2 stitches left on the needle, work the first stitch in A.4, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this, back and forth. On the last row in the diagram increase 2-3-2-2-0-0 stitches evenly on row = 83-87-95-95-99-111 stitches. Now work pattern as follows – from the right side: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.5 (= 4 stitches) until there are 2 stitches left on the needle, work the first stitch in A.5, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When the whole of A.5 has been completed in height, continue with stocking stitch and grey with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side to finished length.
When the piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm cast off the middle 25-25-27-27-27-29 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Cast off 1 stitch on the next row from neck = 28-30-33-33-35-40 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm and cast off - read CASTING OFF TIP. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 81-84-93-93-99-111 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side). Continue in the same way as for the back piece until the piece measures 56-58-60-61-63-65 cm. Now place the middle 13-13-15-15-15-17 stitches on 1 thread for neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Cast off to neck at the beginning of every row from the neck as follows: 2 stitches 2 times and 1 stitch 3 times = 28-30-33-33-35-40 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm and cast off. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.
Cast on 42-42-48-48-48-48 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and light grey. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches moss stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work like this for 3 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 4-2-6-4-4-4 stitches evenly on round = 38-40-42-44-44-44 stitches.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid under sleeve) and allow the marker to follow your work upwards. Continue with stocking stitch. When the piece measures 7-7-3-5-8-7 cm increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase in this way every 8th-8th-8th-7th-6th-5th round a total of 13-13-14-15-16-18 times = 64-66-70-74-76-80 stitches.
When the sleeve measures 54-54-53-53-52-48 cm cast off the middle 4-4-4-10-10-10 stitches (= 2-2-2-5-5-5 stitches on each side of marker) and work a small sleeve cap back and forth on circular needle. Work stocking stitch and cast off at the beginning of each row in each side as follows: Cast off 5-5-6-5-6-6 stitches 2 times and cast off the remaining stitches. The sleeve measures approx. 56-56-55-55-54-51 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the cast off edges. Sew in the sleeves inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side approx. 66-78 stitches around the neck (including the stitches from the thread in front) with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and light grey. Knit 1 round where you adjust the number of stitches to 66-66-72-72-78-78 stitches. Then work as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches in moss stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Work in this way for 6 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Hello again. The pattern is incorrect. I'm knitting the XL and, when worked in the correct tension (20rws over 10cm), the pattern is at least 8rws short. 5cm (rib) + 4cm + 0.5 (inc rw) +5cm (10rws including inc) + 0.5 (inc rw) + 3cm (A1) + 7cm (A2) + 12.5cm (A3) = 37.5cm At this point, the XL pattern should measure 43cm. That's not possible, so either the length at the end of A3 is wrong or there aren't enough rows before the fair isle starts. Which is it?

DROPS Design 11.12.2018 kl. 09:41:

Dear Becky, thanks for your feedback, our Design Team will check - pattern has been edited on some places on body and back piece - see the correction link at the bottom of the pattern. Happy knitting!

Becky 08.12.2018 - 20:50:

This part of the pattern from the start of the main body is badly worded: "Increase in this way every 10th round a total of 2 times = 190 stitches. Work 1 round where you increase 2 stitches evenly on round = 192 stitches." I'm working the XL and if the pattern is followed as written, you either get 4 too many stitches or the piece is 10 rws too short. Am I correct that it should be inc 4 on 10th rw and then inc 2 on the following 10th rw?

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 09:11:

Dear Becky, you are increasing 4 sts on each increasing round. When piece measures 4 cm increase 4 sts = 186 sts, then after 10 rows increase 4 sts = 190 sts (= you increase a total of 2 times, ie only one more time after the first increase). Then work 1 row increasing 2 sts evenly = 192 sts. Happy knitting!

Hei, har naa strikket ferdig opp blomstermoensteret og arbeidet maaler 5 cm for lite, jeg fulgte oppskriften til str L, der staar det 5 cm bord, saa 4cm glattstrikk oke 2 m pa hver side av markering, 9 omg gjentas 2 ganger, det har jeg gjort men den ensfarvede delen syns jeg ble kort, er dette riktig?????

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 15:21:

Hej Oddbjorg, det lyder rigtigt men for at få målene i opskriften er det vigtigt at du har 20 pinde glatstrik på 10 cm i højden. God fornøjelse!

Sally 11.01.2018 - 12:12:

Ved str. L siges der skal labes mønster lige effter udtagningerne og så er hele arbejdet 12 cm, kan jo ikke være rigtigt?

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 10:13:

Du starter med 5 cm rib, strikker 4 cm tager ud, strikker 10 omgange og tager ud igen, strikker 10 omgange og tager 2 masker ud, efter sidste udtagning starter du på mønsteret. God fornøjelse!

Im Deutschen gibt es einen Fehler fuer Perlmuster: "2. RUNDE: Rechte Maschen rechts und linke Maschen links stricken." Korrekt sollte "2. RUNDE: Rechte Maschen LINKS und linke Maschen RECHTS stricken."

Anna 28.12.2017 - 16:04:

Om jag vill sticka modellen Vintermys 185-1 i storlek XXL av Bomull-Lin garnet hur mycket ska jag beställa garn? Kommer masktätheten att stämma om jag följer Vintermys-beskrivningen? Undrar Anna

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 14:18:

Hejsan, du kan ersätta Alaska med Bomull-Lin, de hör till samma garngrupp. Eftersom Bomull-Lin har en löplängd på 85 meter/50 g och Alaska har en löplängd på 70 m/50 g behöver du färre nystan av Bomull-Lin. Till stl XXL behöver du 14 nystan av färg 1 och 5 nystan av färg 2.
