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.

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

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 90 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 6) = 15.
In this example, decrease by knitting together every 14th and 15th stitch. When increasing make 1 yarn over after every 15th stitch. On the next round/row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back of the piece are not tight. You can use a size larger needle when working pattern if this is a problem.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

The yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down to where the rib begins, then the front and back pieces are worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

Cast on 90-96-96-102-102-108 stitches with short circular needle size 4.5 mm and raspberry. Knit 1 round. Change to dark beige and work the next round as follows: * Knit 3, 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue the rib like this until the neck measures 4 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 6-10-6-8-4-6 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 84-86-90-94-98-102 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Knit 1 round where you increase 31-29-30-31-32-33 stitches evenly on round = 115-115-120-125-130-135 stitches. Then work the yoke as described below.

Work A.1 in the round (= 23-23-24-25-26-27 repeats of 5 stitches). Continue the pattern as shown in the diagram. Read KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in the diagram increase as described below:
Arrow-1: Increase 15-19-20-22-23-25 stitches evenly on round = 130-134-140-147-153-160 stitches.
Arrow-2: Increase 14-18-20-21-23-24 stitches evenly on round = 144-152-160-168-176-184 stitches (you now have room for 18-19-20-21-22-23 repeats of 8 stitches).
Arrow-3: Increase 30-34-38-42-40-44 stitches evenly on round = 174-186-198-210-216-228 stitches.
Arrow-4: Increase 26-29-32-35-34-32 stitches evenly on round = 200-215-230-245-250-260 stitches (you now have room for 40-43-46-49-50-52 repeats of 5 stitches).
Arrow-5: Increase 24-25-26-27-30-28 stitches evenly on round = 224-240-256-272-280-288 stitches (you now have room for 28-30-32-34-35-36 repeats of 8 stitches).
Arrow-6: Increase 18-20-12-20-24-24 stitches evenly on round = 242-260-268-292-304-312 stitches. The increases are finished in sizes S and M.
L + XL + XXL + XXXL:
Arrow-7: Increase 12-18-21-18 stitches evenly on round = 280-310-325-330 stitches. Increases are finished in sizes L and XL.
Arrow-8: Increase 19-18 stitches evenly on round = 344-348 stitches. Increases are finished in sizes XXL and XXXL.

= 242-260-280-310-344-348 stitches.
Finish working A.1. The piece measures approx. 24-24-28-28-32-32 cm from the cast-on edge. The next round is worked as follows (with moss green in sizes S and M, apricot in sizes L and XL and with off white in sizes XXL and XXXL): Place the first 42-46-52-55-60-60 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-8-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 79-84-88-100-112-114 stitches (= front piece), place the next 42-46-52-55-60-60 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-8-12 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 79-84-88-100-112-114 stitches (= back piece). Cut the strands. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

= 170-180-192-216-240-252 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the one side of the piece, in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-8-12 stitches cast on under sleeve. Start the round here and work A.2 in the round (= 17-18-16-18-20-21 repeats of 10-10-12-12-12-12 stitches). On the round marked with arrow-7 in A.2 decrease 2 stitches evenly on round (applies only to size S) = 168-180-192-216-240-252 stitches.
When A.2 has been completed, the piece measures approx. 33-33-29-29-25-25 cm from the division.
Continue with stocking stitch and dark beige. When the piece measures 34-36-34-36-34-36 cm from the division (or to desired length, there is 4 cm left to finished length) divide the piece for a split in each side. Keep the first 84-90-96-108-120-126 stitches on the needle and place the remaining 84-90-96-108-120-126 on 1 thread or extra needle.
Knit 1 row from the right side - AT THE SAME TIME increase 15-21-21-21-21-27 stitches evenly on this row (do not increase over the outermost 3 stitches in each side) = 99-111-117-129-141-153 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib as follows from the wrong side: 3 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above, * purl 3, knit 3 *, work from *-* until there are 6 stitches left on the row, purl 3 and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the rib like this for 4 cm. Cast off with garter stitch over garter stitch, knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after every 6th stitch at the same time as you cast off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). Work in the same way over the stitches on the thread/extra needle. The jumper measures approx. 64-66-68-70-72-74 cm from the shoulder down.

Place the 42-46-52-55-60-60 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 5.5 mm and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-8-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 48-52-60-63-68-72 stitches.
Work the first round in A.2 and decrease at the same time 1-1-1-0-1-1 stitch on this round = 47-51-59-63-67-71 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under sleeve) and 1 marker thread in the middle of the round (= mid top of sleeve). Work A.2 in the round, but start the round as described below:
In sizes M, L and XXXL work A.2 from and including stitch 2 in the diagram.
In size S work A.2 from and including stitch 3 in the diagram.
In size XXL work A.2 from and including stitch 4 in the diagram.
In size XL work A.2 from and including stitch 6 in the diagram.
When starting on these different stitches, all sizes will then match the marker thread on top of sleeve with the stitch marked with a black star in the diagram, but because of different numbers of stitches in A.2 in sizes S and M the start of the round will need to be recounted when the number of stitches in the repeat has changed to 12 stitches in these sizes.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 3-3-3-2-2-2 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 5½-5-3-3-2½-2 cm a total of 7-8-11-12-13-15 times = 33-35-37-39-41-41 stitches.
When A.2 has been completed finish working the sleeve with dark beige. When the piece measures 39-39-36-36-33-33 cm from the division, knit 1 round where you increase 9-7-5-9-7-7 stitches evenly on round = 42-42-42-48-48-48 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 3 / purl 3). When the rib measures 4 cm cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after every 6th stitch at the same time as you cast off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). The sleeve measures approx. 43-43-40-40-37-37 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Modello stupendo....ma la quantità di materiali in alcuni colori appena sufficiente o addirittura scarsa! Ho seguito esattamente il pattern per la taglia S, misure identiche, campione ok. Colori 17 e 25 rimasti circa 2 metri di filo, avevo paura di non farcela. Il colore principale 26 non è sufficiente nemmeno per la taglia S ( non immagino la M, dove è indicata la stessa quantità). Ho fatto delle modifiche e ho lasciato le maniche a 3/4.... Un vero peccato!

DROPS Design 26.06.2018 kl. 15:41:

Buongiorno Maria. La ringraziamo per la sua segnalazione. Verrà trasmessa al settore design per una verifica ed una eventuale correzione delle quantità. Buon lavoro!

Is van deze trui ook een patroon voor een vest?

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 10:57:

Hallo Diane, Nee, helaas geen vest. Alleen een trui.

Petra Hansen 22.03.2018 - 14:14:

Hej! jeg er nået til det første farveskift og opdager nu, at der i farvediagrammet er angivet 2 symboler som farve \'lyng\'. Det må være en fejl, da den ene farve skal være \'koral\'. Jeg er dog usikker, hvilket symbol jeg skal tage som \'koral\'. Kan I hjælpe og rette fejlen?\r\nMange hilsener, Petra

Superfin tröja - MEN... Beställde garn och stickade helt enligt mönstret. Köpte alldeles för mycket garn, detta blev över: Färg 17 - 1 nystan helt oanvänt Färg 37 - 1 nystan helt oanvänt Färg 26 - 1 nystan helt oanvänt Gul och blå, knappt använda.. Skippa 1 eller 2 färger och spara in minst 2 nystan.

Jose Van Der Steen 06.03.2018 - 21:58:

Ik ga nu beginnen aan de mouwen. Ik moet een markeerdraad in het midden onder mouw en in het midden bovenkant mouw invoegen. Het aantal steken wat staat aangegeven is bij maat S echter 47 steken, Ik heb dus aan een kant 23 en aan een kant 24 steken. Het telpatroon klopt dan niet. Het midden van de mouw is dan niet het punt wat is aangegeven met een ster. klopt dit of doe ik iets fout ??

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 19:56:

Hallo Jose, Onder de mouw voeg je een markeerdraad in tussen twee steken en bovenop de mouw voeg je een markeerdraad in de steek (dus niet tussen twee steken). Op die manier heb je aan beide kanten 23 steken en daarnaast 1 steek met een markeerdraad.

Genevieve Bos Van Den 23.02.2018 - 19:59:

Dit patroon kan toch ook het rugpand en voorpand in de rondte. Gebreid worden.

DROPS Design 25.02.2018 kl. 18:57:

Hallo Genevieve, Jazeker kan dat. Je zet het totaal aantal steken van voor- en achterpand op een rondbreinaald minus de kantsteken (dus min 4) en breit vervolgens het patroon in de rondte. Veel breiplezier!

Genevieve Van Den Bos 23.02.2018 - 18:30:

Goedendag ik kan toch ook bij dit patroon het voor en achterpand toch ook in de rondte breien. Groetjes Genevieve

Mette Petersen 12.02.2018 - 21:25:

Super flot og er igang med at strikke den, men der er en fejl i opskriften. Der er to gange lyng farve ved diagram forklaring.

Conny Blindheim 12.02.2018 - 10:33:

Hei, veldig mange fine gensere med begynnelse øverst... Er dessverre ikke kjent med denne metoden. Er det mulig at dere kan publisere også oppskrifter nedenfra og opp? Hadde vert flott for oss som er vant med bråt og bol nedenifra. Tusen takk for mange flotte oppskrifter! Mvh Conny Blindheim

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 16:28:

Hej Conny, det er meget enkelt at strikke genseren ovenfra og ned. Vi har naturligvis masser af opskrifter som strikkes traditinelt nedenfra og op. God fornöjelse!

Naomi 09.02.2018 - 04:22:

Thank you for the free pattern. All of your patterns are so pretty compared to the ones available in the U.S.. I do have a couple questions. What size crochet hook would i need to use if I wanted to crochet this since I cant knit? 3.5mm or 4mm hook? Would i need to double or triple yarn amounts too? Some knitting patterns I have crocheted I have had to buy 3-4 times the yarn because designer knitted so tightly. Thank you. Ms Ford

DROPS Design 09.02.2018 kl. 09:48:

Dear Naomi, crocheted pieces require always much more yarn than knitted pieces, this explain why you always require more yarn than the expected amount in the pattern. Try different crochet hook size until you get the desired fabric and tension can be the best way to find the size you would need. For any further individual assistance on converting into crocheting, please contact your DROPS store, even per mail, telephone or on social medias. Happy crocheting!
