When the work measures 52-54-56 cm, bind off for armholes at each side every other row: 2 sts 2-3-4 times, 1 st 4-4-3 times = 42-43-44 sts.
When the work measures 65-68-71 cm, put the center 16-17-18 sts on a st holder for the neck. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 2 times, 1 st 2 times = 7-7-7 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off with double/4-double yarn when the work measures 72-75-78 cm.

Back: Cast on and knit as for the front. Bind off for armholes as on the front = 42-43-44 sts. Continue knitting until the work measures 71-74-77 cm then put the center 26-27-28 sts on a st holder for the neck. Dec 1 st at each neck edge on the next row = 7-7-7 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off with double/4-double yarn when the work measures 72-75-78 cm.

Sleeve: Cast on 26-27-28 sts with 1 thread Big Bouclé natural or 2 threads Alpaca Bouclé off white.

Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in the sleeves and sew sleeve and side seam in one, using the edge sts as a seam allowance.

Collar: Knit the collar back and forth on the needles from the left shoulder seam - pick up sts so that there are 6 cm of overlap on the left shoulder 3 cm at each side of the shoulder seam). Pick up approx. 70-80 sts around the neck on double pointed needles with 1 thread Big Bouclé natural or 2 threads Alpaca Bouclé off white (including sts from the st holders).

Hi! I use 2 strands of Alpaca Boucle with 6mm needles but i get 7.5cm/10sts stockinette st instead of 10cm/10sts. How is this possible and what should i do?

DROPS Design 12.01.2019 kl. 15:03:

Dear Vasso, everyone knits somewhat differently, and the result might be somewhat different gauge as well. If you are getting fewer stitches, it means you knit too thightly. Try using bigger needles. Happy knitting!

Julia Kiely 29.11.2018 - 15:10:

Hello. Do I need to double the quantity of alpaca boucle (ie 550gms x 2 and buy 1100 gms) because the pattern requires 2 threads? 550 doesnt seem enough for an oversize sweater

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 15:17:

Dear Mrs Kiely, 1 strand Alpaca Bouclé - in 2nd size you would need 550 g Alpaca Bouclé working with 2 strands = 1540 m (11 balls x 140 m). Read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Louise Marmoiton 28.11.2018 - 18:55:

Bonjour J'ai du mal à comprendre pour relever les mailles pour le col. Un chevauchement de 6 mailles ça ne me dit rien et de prendre les mailles en attente. Il n'y a pas de mailles en attente puis chaque partie les mailles ont été rabattus. Pourriez-vous m'éclairer svp? Merci

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 09:02:

Bonjour Mme Marmoiton, vous avez mis en attente pour l'encolure: les 16-17-18 m du milieu devant et les 26-27-28 m du milieu dos. Pour tricoter le col, commencez à l'épaule gauche, 3 cm avant la couture et relevez les mailles tout autour de l'encolure, puis quand vous arrivez aux premières mailles relevées, continuez encore sur 6 cm (vous arrêtez 3 cm après la couture d'épaule). Ce chevauchement de 6 cm va permettre de donner un beau retombé au col. Bon tricot!

Bev Mellor 05.04.2018 - 21:17:

Hi Please can you tell me which side is supposed to be the right side. I think the picture looks like the pearl side?

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 23:39:

Dear Bev, the sweater is knitted with stockinett stitch, with its knit side as the right side. The modell uses a bit of rustic, uneven looking boucle yarn that gives the appearance of having the purl side out. However, why don't you knit a swatch and see which side you prefer and use that as a RS in your piece? Happy Knitting!

Vanwege niet beschikbaar zijn van kleur 0100 zou ik dit model Island Girl met alpaca bouclé zwart 8903 wil maken. Welke kleur muskat kanik dan het beste kiezen. Verder is Cotton Viscose ook niet beschikbaar, daar zou ik moeten kiezen voor Baby Merino. Welke bijpassende kleur kies ik hier? vriendelijke groet, Valerie

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 10:54:

Hallo Valerie, Dit is een wat ouder patroon, waarvan inderdaad een aantal garensoorten uit de handel zijn. Welke kleur precies geschikt is als vervanging in combinatie met nader garen, kun je denk ik het beste even bekijken bij je verkooppunt.

Karin 29.11.2017 - 15:20:

Een asymmetrische col neem ik aan...

DROPS Design 30.11.2017 kl. 14:57:

Hallo Karin, Inderdaad asymmetrisch; de col wordt vanaf de linker schouder heen en weer gebreid, dus bij de linker schouder is de col open en bij der echter schouder dicht.

Karin 21.10.2017 - 21:45:

Ik ben benieuwd naar de col van deze trui, maar kan die niet goed zien vanwege de positie van het model op de foto. Hoe ziet de col er op de andere schouder uit?

DROPS Design 25.10.2017 kl. 10:27:

Hallo Karin, Opde andere kant van de schouder zit de col vast,zeg maar en aan de linker kant valt hijopen,zodat je een symmetrischecol hebt

SAIVIN NATHALIE 26.04.2017 - 20:34:

Bonjour; Je rencontre un problème concernant le col. En fait je ne comprends pas comment relever les mailles avec un chevauchement de 6 cm, soit 3cm de chaque côté. Dois je coudre les épaules se chevauchant ou existe t'il une méthode que je ne connais pas. Merci d'avance pour votre réponse Cordialement Nathalie

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 kl. 09:29:

Bonjour Nathalie, commencez à relever les mailles du col 3 cm avant la couture d'épaule gauche (= le long du dos), continuez à relever les mailles tout autour de l'encolure, puis relever ensuite des mailles encore pendant 6 cm, derrière celles que vous avez relevé au début du tour, vous aurez ainsi un chevauchement total de 6 cm, soit 3 cm avant l'épaule et 3 cm après l'épaule. Bon tricot!

Karin Lacey 12.01.2017 - 09:40:

In der Anleitung zu "Island Girl" ist als Material-Alternative DROPS Alpaca Bouclé von Garnstudio 500-550-600 g Farbe Nr. 0100, natur genannt, wobei mit 2 Fäden Alpaca Bouclé gestrickt werden soll. Reicht dann die angegebene Menge von 500-600 g aus?

DROPS Design 12.01.2017 kl. 16:52:

Liebe Frau Lacey, 2 Faden Garngruppe C (= Alpaca Bouclé) = 1 Faden Garngruppe E (= Big Bouclé), so daß man die Lauflänge kalkulieren muss - siehe auch hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
