INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

INCREASE TIP-1 (for round yoke):
Increase stitches alternately before and after the last knitted stitch in A.1 – See arrow in diagram. i.e. the first increase is after the last knitted stitch and the second is increased before the last knitted stitch. Increase as follows: Make 1 yarn over between 2 stitches, the yarn over is worked twisted on the next round. Then the increased stitch is worked in garter stitch. In other words for each increased stitch, there will be 1 more stitch in garter stitch in the A.1 you are increasing in.


INCREASE TIP-2 (for increases in sides of body and sleeves):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Increase like this at each marker thread. The yarn overs are worked twisted on the next round to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round, top down. The yoke is worked in the round, then the piece is divided and the sleeves and body are then worked separately in the round.

YOKE:
Cast on 84-88-94-98-102-104 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. The round starts mid back.
The next round is worked as follows: Knit 16-17-18-19-20-21 stitches and increase 3-4-3-4-3-5 stitches evenly over these stitches (= half back piece), * knit 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* over the next 10 stitches (= sleeve = 10 stitches increased), knit 32-34-37-39-41-42 stitches and increase 6-9-6-8-6-10 stitches evenly over these stitches (= front piece), * knit 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* over the next 10 stitches (= sleeve = 10 stitches increased), knit 16-17-19-20-21-21 stitches and increase 4-5-3-5-4-5 stitches evenly over these stitches (= half back piece) = 117-126-126-135-135-144 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 5 mm. Then work A.1 (= 3 stitches) over all stitches (= 39-42-42-45-45-48 times in width), work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. AT THE SAME TIME increase as follows:

ROUND YOKE:
Increase alternately in every 3rd repeat of A.1 in width every 4th round, i.e. as follows:
1st INCREASE: * Increase 1 stitch – read INCREASE TIP-1, in the first A.1, then work 2 repeats of A.1 in width as before *, work from *-* to end of round = 13-14-14-15-15-16 stitches increased. Work 3 rounds of pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
2nd INCREASE: * Work 1 repeat of A.1 as before, increase 1 stitch in the next A.1, work the next repeat of A.1 as before *, work from *-* to end of round = 13-14-14-15-15-16 stitches increased. Work 3 rounds of pattern.
3rd INCREASE: * Work 2 repeats of A.1 as before, increase 1 stitch in the next A.1 *, work from *-* to end of round = 13-14-14-15-15-16 stitches increased. Work 3 rounds of pattern.
Repeat 1st to 3rd increase a total of 3-3-3-3-4-4 times (= a total of 9-9-9-9-12-12 increase rounds), then repeat 1st increase, 0-1-1-1-1-1 more time (= a total of 9-10-10-10-13-13 increase rounds), then repeat 2nd increase, 0-0-1-1-0-1 more time (= a total of 9-10-11-11-13-14 increase rounds) = 234-266-280-300-330-368 stitches.
Continue with pattern until the piece measures 21-23-24-26-28-30 cm from the cast-on edge.
The next round is worked as follows: Knit 31-36-38-42-47-55 stitches (= half the back piece), place the next 54-60-64-66-70-74 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle, insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these stitches (= in side under sleeve), knit the next 63-73-76-84-95-110 stitches (= front piece), place the next 54-60-64-66-70-74 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle, insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these stitches (=in side under sleeve), knit 32-37-38-42-48-55 stitches (=half the back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 142-162-172-188-214-244 stitches. Continue working stocking stitch. When the piece measures 3 cm from where the sleeves were placed on threads, increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches increased) – read INCREASE TIP-2! Increase like this every 2½-3-3- 2½-3-5 cm a total of 10-9-9-10-9-6 times = 182-198-208-228-250-268 stitches. When the piece measures 31-31-32-32-32-32 cm from where the sleeves were placed on threads, work 1 round as before where you increase 2-2-0-0-2-0 stitches evenly on round = 184-200-208-228-252-268 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Then work rib (purl 2 / knit 2) for 5 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure the cast-off edge is not tight; you can cast off with a needle 1 size larger if necessary. The piece measures approx. 36-36-37-37-37-37 cm from where the sleeves and body were separated and a total of 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.
Place the 54-60-64-66-70-74 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve, insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these stitches = 62-68-74-76-82-86 stitches. Work stocking stitch. When the piece measures 3 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body, decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread (= 2 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP! Change to short circular needles when needed. Decrease like this every 3 cm a total of 4-4-5-5-6-6 times = 54-60-64-66-70-74 stitches.
Then increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread (= 2 stitches increased). Increase like this every 3-3-3-3-2-2 cm a total of 7-6-6-7-7-7 times = 68-72-76-80-84-88 stitches. When the piece measures 37-37-36-36-34-33 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body, change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work 1 round where all the stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 = 34-36-38-40-42-44 stitches. Then work rib (= purl 2 / knit 2) AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 2-0-2-0-2-0 stitches evenly on the first round = 36-36-40-40-44-44 stitches. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl when piece measures 42-42-41-41-39-38 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body and a total of 63-65-65-67-67-68 cm from the neck edge. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

De lodrette linjer, består de af retmasker eller vrangmasker? Hvor mange masker består en lodret linje af? Går der 1 maske eller 2 masker pr. lodrette linje?

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 13:08:

Hei Heidi. Mener du linjene i mønsteret på bærestykket? Bærestykket strikkes etter diagram A.1 (1 rute = 1 maske. De tomme rutene = rettmasker, rutene med kryss = vrangmasker). De linjene du ser på bildet er rettmasken med pil i A.1. Maskene mellom strikkes i retstrikk. God fornøyelse

Vraiment un superbe modèle. Je viens de terminer une adaptation de celui-ci en 10 ans à manches courtes. 3 pelotes ont été utilisées (75 grammes) avec le haut et les manches en 3.5 et le corps en 4. Merci pour toutes ces merveilles

Joe 17.02.2019 - 10:38:

Petite précision : c'est le deuxième que je tricote et j'ai utilisé 5 pelotes de 25 grammes soit 125 grammes et non 175 comme indiqué pour une taille S.

Dette var en " vanskelig" oppskrift til slikt garn.Ganske umuligt å rekke opp..Har gjort 4-5 forsøk...men slit med å få det til å stemme..Feil masketall på 2 plasser i oppskriten.Vurderer å finne en bedre oppskrift!?

På 2. Økning skal det økes 13 m. Hvordan blir det bare 13 m hvis det økes i annenhver rapport av a1?

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 15:47:

Hei charlotte. Du øker i hver 3 rapport: strikk 1 rapport uten økning, 1 rapport med økning, 1 rapport uten økning. Disse 3 rapportene gjentas. Slik at den neste rapport du strikker =1 rapport uten økning (strikkes etter den siste rapporten, også uten økning), så kommer 1 rapport med økning, 1 rapport uten økning osv. God fornøyelse

Charlotte 09.01.2019 - 15:21:

Hei. Hva menes med å øke vekselvis før og etter den siste rettmasken? Skal jeg først øke etter siste maske, deretter strikke 2 rapporter og på neste rapport med økning øke før masken? Eller skal jeg øke etter masken en hel omgang? Eller en hel a1?

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 13:23:

Hei Charlotte. Du øker vekselsvis før og etter rettmasken, men du øker likt på hele omgangen. Altså: den første økeomgangen øker du etter rettmasken (hele omgangen rundt), på den andre økeomgang øker du før rettmasken (hele omgangen rundt) osv. God fornøyelse

Birgitte 05.01.2019 - 16:36:

1. Hvad betyder 'rapport'? 2. Kan ikke se hvor mange m der skal tages ud på hver p. Er det kun 1 m?

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 10:04:

Hei Birgitte. Rapport betyr hvor mange ganger du skal gjenta A.1 i bredden. 1 rapport = 1 A.1i bredden. Når du skal øke i feks den 3 rapporten betyr det at du strikker A.1 2 ganger i bredden (= 6 masker strikket), og øker i den 3. gangen du strikker A.1. Du øker totalt 13-14-14-15-15-16 masker på hver økeomgang - dette står i oppskriften etter forklaringene av hvordan det økes (1. ØKNING, 2. ØKNING og 3. ØKNING). God fornøyelse.

Joe 02.01.2019 - 11:54:

Merci pour votre réponse. Ne pouvant attendre j'ai trouvé une autre façon de faire. Très bonne année à toute l'équipe et merci pour votre travail.

Heidi H 31.12.2018 - 13:16:

Hvordan jeg skal starte op. Skal jeg strikke 4 omgange, eller skal jeg strikke 8 omgange? "RETSTRIK (strikkes rundt): Strik 1 omgang ret og 1 omgang vrang. Slå 84-88-94-98-102-104 masker op på rundpind 4. Strik 4 omgange retstrik .

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 15:46:

Hei Heidi. Du strikker totalt 4 omganger rettstrikk - 1 omgang rett, 1 omgang vrang, 1 omgang rett, 1 omgang vrang. God fornøyelse.

Joe 26.12.2018 - 18:17:

Help Cela fait deux fois que je défais mon travail et pas facile avec cette laine ! je viens seulement de comprendre qu'il faut augmenter de 13 mailles seulement à chaque tour d'augmentation et donc que la grille évolue. Avant de recommencer je voudrais bien avoir une précision. Quand il est indiqué que les mailles augmentées sont tricotées au point mousse sont-elles à tricoter à 'endroit sur chaque rang ? j'ai vraiment du mal à comprendre ce modèle. Merci de me répondre.

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 09:20:

Bonjour Joe, pour tricoter du point mousse en rond, on va tricoter les mailles alternativement à l'endroit et à l'envers - cf POINT MOUSSE (en rond) et cette vidéo. Bon tricot!
