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.

INCREASE TIP:
All increases are worked from the right side!
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row, purl the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 71 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 7) = 10.1. In this example, work approx. every 9th and 10th stitch together.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle, bottom up. The sleeves are worked back and forth on circular needle.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 71-71-77-83-89-95 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand Alpaca Bouclé and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib as follows - from the right side: 4 stitches GARTER STITCH - see description above, * knit 3, purl 3 *, work from *-* until there are 7 stitches left on row, knit 3 stitches, 4 stitches garter stitch. Continue like this until the rib measures 5 cm – adjust so that the next row is worked from the right side. Change to circular needle size 9 mm. Knit 1 row (with 4 stitches garter stitch in each side) where you decrease 7-3-5-7-9-11 stitches evenly on row (but not over stitches in garter stitch) – read DECREASE TIP = 64-68-72-76-80-84 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch with 4 stitches garter stitch in each side until the piece measures 42-43-44-45-46-47 cm from the cast-on edge. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! At the start of the next 2 rows cast off 3 stitches in each side for armholes = 58-62-66-70-74-78 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm, cast off the middle 18-18-20-20-22-22 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Now cast off 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 19-21-22-24-25-27 stitches. Then cast off for diagonal shoulder on each row from the side/armhole as follows: Cast off 9-10-11-12-12-13 stitches 1 time and 10-11-11-12-13-14 stitches1 time. The piece measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the top of shoulder and down. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work in the same way as for back piece, but when piece measures 52-54-55-57-58-60 cm place the middle 10-10-10-10-12-12 stitches on a thread and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue to cast off stitches from each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 2 times and 1 stitch 1-1-2-2-2-2 time = 19-21-22-24-25-27 stitches. When piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm – adjust to match back piece, cast off for diagonal shoulders on each row from the side/armhole as follows: Cast off 9-10-11-12-12-13 stitches 1 time and 10-11-11-12-13-14 stitches 1 time. Piece measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from top of shoulder down. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVES:
The sleeve is worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 26-26-26-32-32-32 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand Alpaca Bouclé and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib (= knit 3 /purl 3) with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 5 cm. Change to circular needle size 9 mm. Then work stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 11-9-8-11-9-8 cm increase 1 stitch in each side – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 11-9-10-15-13-9 cm a total of 2-3-4-2-3-4 times = 30-32-34-36-38-40 stitches. When piece measures 44-43-42-41-40-39 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to broader shoulders), cast off. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Asembly is worked with 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands).
Sew shoulder seams with grafting stitches inside the cast off edge so the seam is flat. Sew sleeves to body. Sew the seams underneath the sleeves inside the 1 edge stitch in each side. Sew the side seams in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch, but leave approx. 10 cm for split at bottom. Repeat on the other side. Cut and fasten strands.

NECK EDGE:
Knit up 60-60-66-66-72-72 stitches (including stitches from the thread) around the neck with circular needle size 8 mm and 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands). Work rib (= knit 3 / purl 3) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Jeg er vild med modellen, men kunne godt tænke mig at strikke den i drops sky og evt på en pind 4,5 - kan jeg følge mønstret eller skal jeg regne noget om?

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 10:58:

Hei Mette. Denne modellen er strikket med en strikkefasthet på 10 mx 14 p = 10 x 10 cm. Om du endrer på dette vil dimensjonene på plagget bli helt annerledes enn angitt. Det er brukt garn fra garngruppe E (evt 2 tråder fra C) og pinne 9. Sky tilhører garngruppe B, og selv med 2 tråder ville dette kun tilsvare garngruppe D. Om du endrer pinnestørrelsen fra 9 til 4,5 vil dette også endre på strikkefastheten og hele oppskriften vil måtte regnes om. Vi anbefaler at du forholder deg til den angitte strikkefastheten, men så lenge du gjør det kan du endre pinner og garn som du måtte ønske, uten å påvirke plaggets endelige mål. God fornøyelse.

Ist es richtig , dass nur 300 g wolle für einen Pullover in S benötigt werden?

DROPS Design 24.08.2018 kl. 10:32:

Liebe Susanne, ja, das ist korrekt, insgesamt werden 300 g benötigt. Beide Garne haben eine vergleichsweise lange Lauflänge und der Pullover wird luftig gestrickt. Falls Sie eine Garnalternative verwenden möchten, müssen Sie die Lauflänge berücksichtigen. Beachten Sie, dass Sie die Maschenprobe und die Maße einhalten müssen, damit das Garn reicht. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Hola, Quiero hacer este jersey y me he comprado lo necesario, cambiando eso sí, la lana DROPS ALPACA BOUCLÉ por DROPS AIR, pero ya simplemente tejiendo la muestra los puntos me quedan muy sueltos. He comprado agujas circulares de 8mm y 9mm, tengo que apretar más los puntos? es cuestión de que las agujas no sean de la marca drops? Si pudiéseis darme unos consejos sobre cómo hacerlo os lo agradecería! Gracias de antemano!

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 20:43:

Hola Lorena. ALPACA BOUCLÉ tiene una forma muy especial ( muy rizada ) y es bastante difícil buscar otra lana para sustituirla que tenga el mismo efecto. Y más aún con Alpaca Silk. Si lo vas a trabajar sólo con Air hay que usar agujas 4,5- 5 mm. Si vas a trabajar con Air y Alpaca Silk entonces se puede trabajar con agujas más gordas. Pero la labor en ambos casos va a salir diferente a la de la foto.

Renate 11.04.2018 - 18:36:

Gibt es ein Problem, wenn man den Pulli bis zum Armausschnitt in Runden auf der Rundnadel strickt? Ich würde dann einfach glatt rechts stricken.

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 08:26:

Liebe Renate, wahrscheinlich können Sie auch den Pullover in Runden stricken, aber denken Sie daran, daß manchmal die Naht der Ausformung gehören. Viel spaß beim stricken!

Christine 09.02.2018 - 13:47:

Ich habe die Strickanleitung noch nicht genau gelesen. Wollte jedoch fragen, ob man anstelle der Rundstricknadeln auch "normale" Stricknadeln verwenden kann.

DROPS Design 09.02.2018 kl. 17:42:

Liebe Christine, jedes Teil wird hin und zurück mit Rundnadel gestrickt, um genügend Platz für alle Maschen zu haben, gerne können sie mit Spitznadeln stricken, beachten Sie nur, daß die Maschenprobe immer stimmt (die Maschen werden etwas enger sein). Nur Hals wird in der Runde gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anna 17.01.2018 - 07:21:

I really liked this sweater. I want to knit but I see that in the description of the sleeve there are inaccuracies in counting sts after the increases. And also the length of the sleeve seems to me too big for such a wide body. Tell me please whether everything is true in the description of the sleeve?

DROPS Design 17.01.2018 kl. 11:28:

Dear Anna, pattern has been checked and everything looks fine. Happy knitting!

Géraldine 02.01.2018 - 23:58:

Beautiful oversize sweater

MGB 23.12.2017 - 13:52:

I would like to have such a simple sweater in a crochet pattern!

Nadja Heckel 17.12.2017 - 09:03:

Schöner Oversize Pullover ohne wuchtig zu wirken! Für Winter wie Sommer gleichermaßen, sehr gelungen! Mit oder Schmuck und Schal gestylt, bietet dieser viele Kombinationsmöglichkeiten

Victoria 13.12.2017 - 20:34:

In der Schlichtheit finde ich den Reiz.
