INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the number of stitches to be decreased over (e.g. 43 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 7.2.
In this example work approx. every 6th and 7th stitch together when decreasing.
When increasing, make 1 yarn over after approx. every 7th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch on the inside of the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row work the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in parts, which are sewn together to finish.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 61-61-67-76-76-82 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 2 strands Air + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 3 strands). 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 1, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 4 stitches left on the row, knit 1 and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the rib like this for 3 cm.
The next row is worked as follows from the wrong side:
Sizes S + XL:
3 edge stitches in garter stitch, knit 2 together, knit 2-5, knit 2 together, purl the next 43-52 stitches and decrease at the same time 6-9 stitches evenly over these 43-52 stitches – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP, knit 2 together, knit 2-5, knit 2 together and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch.

ALL SIZES:
There are now 51-55-59-63-67-73 stitches on the needle. Change to circular needle size 9 mm.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, 4-6-8-7-9-12 stitches stocking stitch with the wrong side out, A.1 (= 37-37-37-43-43-43 stitches), 4-6-8-7-9-12 stocking stitch with the wrong side out and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern like this back and forth. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 49-50-51-52-53-54 cm insert 1 marker in each side to mark the armholes. Continue the pattern as before with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. When the piece measures 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm place the middle 13-13-15-15-17-17 stitches on 1 thread for neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Then cast off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 1 time = 16-18-19-21-22-25 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until there is 1 row left before the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm. Knit 1 row from the wrong side and loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 61-61-67-76-76-82 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 2 strands Air + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 3 strands). 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 1, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 4 stitches left on the row, knit 1 and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the rib like this for 3 cm.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side and decrease AT THE SAME TIME 10-6-8-13-9-9 stitches evenly on this row (do not decrease over the edge stitches) = 51-55-59-63-67-73 stitches. Then work stocking stitch with the wrong side out and 3 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side.
When the piece measures 49-50-51-52-53-54 cm insert 1 marker in each side to mark the armholes. When the piece measures 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm cast off the middle 17-17-19-19-21-21 stitches for neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Cast off 1 stitch on next row from neck = 16-18-19-21-22-25 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until there is 1 row left before the piece measures 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm. Knit 1 row from the wrong side and loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 21-21-24-24-27-27 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 2 strands Air + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 3 strands). Purl 1 row (= wrong side).
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 2*, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 1 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the rib like this for 3 cm. Purl 1 row from the wrong side where you increase 4-6-5-7-4-6 stitches evenly on row = 25-27-29-31-31-33 stitches. Change to circular needle size 9 mm.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 5-6-7-7-7-8 stitches stocking stitch with the wrong side out, A.2 (= 13-13-13-15-15-15 stitches), 5-6-7-7-7-8 stitches stocking stitch with the wrong side out and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern like this. When the piece measures 10 cm in all sizes, increase 1 stitch in each side – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 10 cm a total of 3 times in each side (the increased stitches are purled from the right side and knitted from the wrong side) = 31-33-35-37-37-39 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 45-44-42-41-40-38 cm. Cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside the cast off edge. Sew the sleeve seams edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat.
Sew the side seams from the armholes down, but stop the seam when you have 18 cm left in each side (= split). Sew in sleeves.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side approx. 48 to 60 stitches around the neck (including the stitches from the thread in front) with short circular needle size 8 mm and 2 strands Air + 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 3 strands). NOTE: If you knit up more (or less) stitches than suggested, you will need to decrease/increase evenly on the first round.
Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs; on the next row purl the one yarn over (= hole), and drop the other
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches

Hallo! ich würde es gerne den Pullover mit zwei Fäden Drops You 8 und einem Faden Brushed Alpaca Silk probieren. Könnt ihr mir das empfehlen? Oder lieber nur mit Drops You 8? Vielen lieben Dank

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 14:45:

Liebe Tina, Drops loves you 8 und Air sind beide Garngruppe C, beachten Sie nur, daß das Strickstück etwas unterschiedlich aussehen wird, da beide Garne (DROPS loves You 8 und Air) auch unterschiedlich sind. Hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternativen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sarah Inkpen 30.05.2018 - 06:43:

The sleeves for size small are 10 cm longer than for xxl is that correct?

DROPS Design 30.05.2018 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs Inkpen, yes that's correct, sleeves are shorter in larger size since shoulders are larger - see measurement chart - and adjust to your own size if needed. Happy knitting!

Sue 18.05.2018 - 15:46:

I was hoping to make this in a cotton. Can you tell me suitable alternatives please?

DROPS Design 18.05.2018 kl. 15:49:

Dear Sue, you will find here relevant informations about alternatives. For any individual assistance choosing a yarn please contact your DROPS store, even per mail, telephone or via social medias. Happy knitting!

A nice, relaxed piece to keep you warm in cool summer nights. Love the design and patterns

I'd like to see a picture where we can see the shape of this sweater/tunic/cardigan/...? Thanks !

Cindy Vogel 13.12.2017 - 20:05:

I can’t tell if this is a loose pullover or a cardigan the way it is styled in this picture.
