INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 8) = 11.5.
In this example, decrease by knitting together alternately every 10th and 11th stitch and every 11th and 12th stitch.
If increasing, make 1 yarn over alternately after every 11th and 12th stitch; on the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

STRIPES:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. 1 row in the diagram = 1 ridge, i.e. knit 2 rows.
When A.1 has been completed 1 time in height, work A.2, when A.2 has been completed 1 time in height; continue with A.1 if necessary to finished length.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Increase 1 stitch inside the 1 edge stitch in each side by making 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
The whole sweater is worked back and forth in sections and is sewn together to finish.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on a little loosely 92-100-104-112-124-136 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and off white. Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 5 stitches left on the row, knit 2 and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the rib in this way for 6-6-6-8-8-8 cm / 2½"-2½"-2½"-3"-3"-3''. Change to circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 and knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 8-10-8-8-12-14 stitches evenly on row – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 84-90-96-104-112-122 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side and knit 1 row from the right side. Then work STRIPES in garter stitch – see description above. NOTE: The stripes start with knit from the wrong side. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 47-48-49-50-51-52 cm / 18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½'' cast on 1 new stitch in each side (edge stitch for seam) = 86-92-98-106-114-124 stitches.
When the piece measures approx. 59-61-63-63-65-67 cm /23 1/4"-24"-24 3/4"-24 3/4"-25½"-26½" (adjust so that the next row is worked from the right side), place the middle 38-38-40-42-44-44 stitches on 1 thread for the neck (without working the stitches).
Knit 1 row from the right side over the first 24-27-29-32-35-40 stitches, i.e. as far as the stitches on the thread, turn piece, bind off 1 stitch and knit to end of row. Turn piece, knit 23-26-28-31-34-39 stitches, turn piece, bind off 1 stitch and knit to end of row = 22-25-27-30-33-38 stitches left on shoulder. Place the shoulder stitches on 1 thread.
Knit 1 row from the right side over the remaining 24-27-29-32-35-40 stitches on the other side of the neck, turn piece, knit from the wrong side until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together, turn piece, knit 23-26-28-31-34-39 stitches, turn piece, knit from the wrong side until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together and turn piece = 22-25-27-30-33-38 stitches left on shoulder.
Now place all stitches back on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 (including the stitches on the threads) = 82-88-94-102-110-120 stitches. Change to off white.
Knit 1 row from the right side, AT THE SAME TIME on this row knit up 2 stitches in each side of the neck where you decreased stitches for the neck = 86-92-98-106-114-124 stitches on the needle. Purl 1 row from the wrong side where you increase 6-8-6-6-10-12 stitches evenly = 92-100-104-112-124-136 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work the next row as follows from the right side: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the rib in this way for 6-6-6-8-8-8 cm / 2½"-2½"-2½"-3"-3"-3'', the piece now measures approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' from the shoulder down. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

BACK PIECE:
Work in the same way as for front piece.

SLEEVE:
Cast on a little loosely 44-44-48-48-52-52 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and off white. Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the rib in this way for 6-6-6-8-8-8 cm / 2½"-2½"-2½"-3"-3"-3''. Change to circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 and knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 8-6-8-8-10-8 stitches evenly on row = 36-38-40-40-42-44 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side and knit 1 row from the right side. Then work STRIPES in garter stitch in the same way as on the body (the stripes start with knit from the wrong side). AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 8-8-8-10-10-10 cm / 4'', increase 1 stitch in each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 2 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 4-3½-3½-2½-2½-2 cm / 1½"-1 1/4"-1 1/4"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4'' a total of 10-11-11-13-13-14 times = 56-60-62-66-68-72 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 47-46-45-43-41-39 cm / 18½"-18"-17 3/4"-17"-16"-15 1/4'' and loosely bind off with knit from the right side.
Work one more sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside the bind-off edges, but leave approx. 27-27-28-29-30-31 cm / 10½"-10½"-11"-11½"-11 3/4"-12 1/4'' for neck mid front and mid back. Sew in sleeves inside the 1 edge stitch in each side. Sew sleeve and side seams in one go – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat, but stop when you still have 6-6-6-8-8-8 cm / 2½"-2½"-2½"-3"-3"-3'' left at bottom of body (= split).

Er der en grund til at blusen ikke er strikket på rundpind?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 07:35:

Hei Susanne. Akkurat denne modellen er designet for å strikkes frem og tilbake. Men det er ikke noe i veien for at du tilpasser den slik at den kan strikkes rundt om du heller ønsker det. God fornøyesle.

Chantal LAGOUTTE 16.11.2018 - 20:51:

Bonsoir,le fil est -il tricoté seul ou en double ? est ce que le fait de le tricoter seul ne va pas faire un pull trop lâche, et large ?merci pour votre réponse.Bien cordialement Mme LAGOUTTE

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 07:59:

Bonjour Mme Lagoutte, on tricote ici avec 1 seul fil Brushed Alpaca Silk sur la base de 15 m x 28 rangs point mousse = 10 x 10 cm pour obtenir l'effet en photo et les mesures du schéma. N'hésitez pas à réaliser votre échantillon pour vérifier les mesures et la texture qui doit être souple. Bon tricot!

Melody 07.06.2018 - 19:22:

In de streep telpatronen, staat 1 blokje dan voor 1 naald? Of staat een blokje voor een ribbel (2 naalden)? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 08.06.2018 kl. 10:55:

Dag Melody, 1 blokje staat voor 1 ribbel (dus voor 2 naalden)

Jola 24.03.2018 - 13:58:

Witam właśnie jestem w trakcie robienia tego sweterka, czy liczba oczek na przód i tył w rozmiarze L została podana właściwie czy nie powinno być 108?. I kolejne pytanie, zbliżając się do dekoltu dodajemy oczka dla rozm. M 8 oczek, co nam daje 100 oczek a co z tymi dwoma na szwy, czy nie powinno się dodać jeszcze 2 oczek? Z góry dziękuję za pomoc, pozdrawiam Jola
