INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 8 stitches increased on the round). On the next round the yarn overs are knitted twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 156 stitches), and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 21) = 7.4.
In this example increase alternately after approx. every 7th and 8th stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP-2 (under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches from the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4, make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 72-78-78-84-90-96 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Air. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm and knit 1 round. Then work yoke in the round.

YOKE:
Work A.1 in the round (= 12-13-13-14-15-16 repeats of 6 stitches – the pattern should fit neatly over the rib, so that the purled stitch in A.1 is over 1 knitted stitch from the rib and the knitted stitch in the middle of the leaf in A.1 is over 1 knitted stitch from the rib).
Continue A.1 as shown in the diagram. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1 has been completed, there are 216-234-234-252-270-288 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 20-20-20-20-23-23 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches:
The first marker thread is inserted after the first 34-36-36-40-44-47 stitches (= ½ back piece), 2nd marker thread is inserted after the next 40-45-45-46-47-50 stitches (= sleeve), 3rd marker thread is inserted after the next 68-72-72-80-88-94 stitches (= front piece) and the 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 40-45-45-46-47-50 stitches (= sleeve). There are now 34-36-36-40-44-47 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread (= ½ back piece).
Work stocking stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME when you have worked 1 round of stocking stitch after A.1, start to increase to RAGLAN – see description above. Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 2-3-5-6-6-5 times = 232-258-274-300-318-328 stitches on needle.
Continue with stocking stitch until there is 1 round left before the piece measures 23-24-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge mid front. The next round is worked as follows:
Knit 36-39-41-46-50-52 stitches (= ½ back piece), place the next 44-51-55-58-59-60 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 72-78-82-92-100-104 stitches (= front piece), place the next 44-51-55-58-59-60 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 36-39-41-46-50-52 stitches on the round (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 156-168-180-200-220-232 stitches. Start the round mid under the sleeve in the one side of the piece, i.e. in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 cast on stitches. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 32-33-34-33-33-33 cm from the separation, knit 1 round where you increase 21-24-27-28-29-32 stitches evenly on round - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 177-192-207-228-249-264 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 44-51-55-58-59-60 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on double pointed needles or short circular needle size 5.5 mm, in addition knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50-57-63-66-69-72 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches under the sleeve and work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm from the separation, decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3-1½-1½-1-1-1 cm a total of 5-8-10-11-11-12 times = 40-41-43-44-47-48 stitches. When the piece measures 17-16-20-15-15-16 cm from the separation (decreases should now be finished), increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 6-6-5-4½-4½-4 cm a total of 4-4-4-5-5-5 times = 48-49-51-54-57-58 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 42-41-41-39-37-35 cm from the separation. Knit 1 round where you increase 0-2-0-0-0-2 stitches evenly on round = 48-51-51-54-57-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 45-44-44-43-41-39 cm from the separation. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hei. Eg tror det er en feil i diagrammet til størrelse xxl+xxxl. Omg 19. Sammenlign med omg 19 på diagram for mindre størrelser. Kastene og maskene sammen skal være rett over som omg 17. Har strikket 3 gensere i mindre størrelser og holder nå på med en i xxl. Har rekt opp og mønsteret ser rett ut nå når eg gjorde som i de mindre størrelsene.

Dordi Hammer 17.06.2018 - 20:38:

Lurer på om det er noe feil i mønsteret. Er i gang med å strikke denne, men lurer litt på ermelengde. I oppskriften står det at det skal strikkes til ermet måler 42-41-41-39-37-35 cm, fra str S til XXXL. Virker ulogisk for meg at ermet er lengst på de minste str. Ser også at lengden på bolen fra under ermene og til vrangbord skiller bare 1 og 2 cm på de ulike str. Er dette riktig?

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 14:28:

Hei Dordi. Ja det stemmer, de større størrelsene har videre ermkuppel/skulderparti og derfor strikkes ikke ermene like lange som i de mindre størrelsene. Det stemmer også at det er 2 cm lengdeforskjell på genseren mellom hver størrelse (målt fra skulder til avfellingskant). Det er selvfølgelig ikke noe i veien for at du strikker både erme og bol lenger om du ønsker det, men vær da klar over at du da vil bruke mer garn. God fornøyelse.

Marit Lyngheim Wilhelmsen 15.06.2018 - 20:19:

Hei! Er det noe feil med forklaringa av tegna? To tomme ruter... antar den ene skal det være dernest økes og blir hull..

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 11:00:

Hej Marit, Vi kan ikke lige se hvor du er i opskriften. Er det diagramforklaringerne du mener? Hvilken i så fald?

Claudia Cruz 29.03.2018 - 23:57:

78 malhas para a gola não são suficientes. Tenho que duplicar? Podem explicar?

Melanie 14.03.2018 - 10:50:

Hallo, zur zuvor gestellten Frage bzw Antwort : das habe ich bereits getan! Mir ging es jetzt um diesen Schritt : Größe L : Ärmel: Die 55 stillgelegten Maschen der einen Seite der Arbeit auf Nadelspiel oder die kurze Rundnadel Nr. 5,5 legen, zusätzlich je 1 Masche aus den 8 unter dem Arm angeschlagenen Maschen auffassen = 63 Maschen. also nehme ich die 55 stillgelegten Maschen auf, aber wie fasse ich die 8 restlichen der insgesamt 63 Maschen auf?

DROPS Design 14.03.2018 kl. 13:41:

Liebe Melanie, wenn Sie die Ärmel dann stricken, 1 M in jeder der 8 angeschlagten Maschen auffassen (siehe Video) und die 55 M in der Runde stricken = 63 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Melanie 14.03.2018 - 10:23:

Hallo! Ich bin gerade dabei den Pulli zu stricken, bin bald dabei mit den Ärmeln anzufangen. Habe ich es richtig verstanden, dass durch die (Größe L) beidseitg 8 neu aufgenommenen Maschen (PASSE, unter den Ärmeln) diese auch beim Stricken der Ärmel mit aufgenommen werden? Wie mache ich das am besten? Mit einer Häkelnadel? Liebe Grüße!

DROPS Design 14.03.2018 kl. 10:44:

Liebe Melanie, bei der Passe haben Sie schon auch die Ärmel dazugestrickt, dann am Ende der Passe werden Sie die Ärmel von der Passe teilen: die Maschen der Halb-Rückenteil stricken, die nächsten 55 M stilllegen (= Ärmel) und 8 neue Maschen anschlagen (siehe Video), Maschen für Vorderteil stricken, die nächsten 55 M stilllegen (= Ärmel) und 8 neue Maschen anschlagen, und bis zur Ende der Runde stricken. Diese 8 Maschen x 2 sind jetzt unter den Ärmeln (Seiten) und die Ärmel werden später weitergestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

En la versión en castellano no aparece el diagrama. ¿Dónde puedo encontrarlo? Gacias

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 16:46:

Hola Teresa, se trataba de un error de la página, ya está el diagrama disponible debajo del patrón.

Doris 28.02.2018 - 09:34:

Vielen Dank für die Anleitung! Ich habe den Pullover in Alpaca + Kid Silk gestrickt. Der Pullover war einfach zu stricken und ist wunderschön geworden. Die Anleitung ist sehr gut verständlich und das Stricken hat riesigen Spaß gemacht. Ein großes Lob ihrem Designer-Team, das tolle Strickanleitungen entwirft! Ich schaue immerwieder gerne nach neuen Entwürfen, habe schon viele nachgearbeitet und war immer begeistert.

Tove Pedersen 27.02.2018 - 10:50:

Hei☺ jeg har et spørsmål ang garn, håper det er ok å ta det her. Kan Drops Melody erstatte Pus DSA? Tenkte først på Cloud, men der finnes ikke gulfargen min datter ønsker på sin genser, Lindtein genseren. Har dere en lignende oppskrift kanskje? Man må kanskje kjøpe orginalgarnet for å få oppskriften? Mvh Tove Pedersen

DROPS Design 27.02.2018 kl. 13:39:

Hei Tove. Jeg vet ikke om Melody kan erstatte dit garn men sjekk oppskriften om den strikkes med en strikkefasthet på 12 - 14 m så kan du sikkert bruke melody. God Fornøyelse

Manuela 20.02.2018 - 22:15:

Kann es sein, dass im Diagramm ein paar Schritte nicht mit Zeichen beschrieben sind? Ich sehe 2 leere Kästchen und im Diagramm Maschen, die nirgendwo beschrieben sind.

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 09:10:

Liebe Manuela, alle Zeichen sind beschrieben, am Anfang A.1 nehmen Sie 2 Maschen (= Umschläge) zu, deshalb gibt es jede 2. Reihe 1 M mehr auf beiden Seiten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
