INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting gauge becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back of the piece are not tight. You can increase a needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 80 stitches), and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 3) = 26.7.
In this example, knit approx. every 26th and 27th stitch together when decreasing.
When increasing make 1 yarn over after approx. every 26th and 27th stitch; on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease as follows before the marker thread (start 3 stitches before the marker thread): Knit 2 together, knit 1.
Decrease as follows after the marker thread: Knit 1, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over.

INCREASE TIP:
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches, 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. You can work an elevation in the back of the neck to get a better fit; the neck will then a bit higher at the back. This elevation can be left out and the neck will then be the same height front and back – see description of elevation further down in the text. After the yoke the body is worked in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 80-84-88-92-96-100 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and wheat.
Knit 1 round. Change to off white and work rib (knit 2 / purl 2) for 3-3-4-4-5-5 cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''-2''-2''. Knit 1 round where you decrease 3-5-5-4-4-4 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 77-79-83-88-92-96 stitches. Change to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9.
Now you can work an elevation in the back of the neck or go straight to working the yoke if you do not want an elevation.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid back. Start from the right side with off white and knit 11-11-12-13-13-14 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 22-22-24-26-26-28 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 33-33-36-39-39-42 stitches, turn tighten the strand and purl 44-44-48-52-52-56 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit to mid back.

YOKE:
Now work pattern A.1 in the round - read KNITTING TIP, and increase stitches evenly on each round marked with an arrow as follows:
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
On round marked with arrow 1 increase 31-41-37-44-40-48 stitches evenly = 108-120-120-132-132-144 stitches.
On round marked with arrow 2 increase 36-36-48-48-48-60 stitches evenly = 144-156-168-180-180-204 stitches.
On round marked with arrow 3 increase 36-36-48-48-48-60 stitches evenly = 180-192-216-228-228-264 stitches.
On round marked with arrow 4 increase 36-36-36-36-48-48 stitches evenly = 216-228-252-264-276-312 stitches.
On round marked with arrow 5 increase 0-12-12-16-28-16 stitches evenly = 216-240-264-280-304-328 stitches.
Change to wheat. Continue with wheat and stockinette stitch until the piece measures 24-25-26-27-28-29 cm / 9½''-9 3/4''-10 1/4''-10 5/8''-11''-11 3/8'' from the cast-on edge mid front and down (if the knitting gauge is correct in height, this measurement is reached in size S when A.1 has been completed).

The next round is worked as follows:
Knit the first 30-34-38-41-46-50 stitches (= half the back piece), place the next 47-52-56-57-60-63 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= side under the sleeve), knit the next 61-68-76-83-92-101 stitches (= front piece), place the next 47-52-56-57-60-63 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches on the needle (=side under the sleeve) and knit the next 31-34-38-42-46-51 stitches (= half back piece).
Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 138-152-168-186-204-222 stitches. Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches cast on under the sleeves (= 4-4-4-5-5-5 new stitches on each side of the marker thread). Continue in the round with wheat and stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' decrease 2 stitches in each side – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm / 1½''-1½''-2''-2''-2 3/8''-2 3/8'' a total of 3 times = 126-140-156-174-192-210 stitches. When the piece measures 15-15-17-17-19-19 cm / 6"-6"-6 3/4"-6 3/4"-7½"-7½'' increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3 cm / 1'' a total of 5 times = 146-160-176-194-212-230 stitches. When the piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm / 11¾''-12¼''-12½''-13''-13 3/8''-13¾'' '' increase 14-16-16-18-20-22 stitches evenly on round = 160-176-192-212-232-252 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 4 cm / 1½''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch at the same time as you bind off (yarn overs bind off as normal stitches).
The sweater measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
= 47-52-56-57-60-63 stitches. Place the 47-52-56-57-60-63 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches cast on under the sleeve with wheat = 55-60-64-67-70-73 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches (= 4-4-4-5-5-5 new stitches on each side of the marker thread).
Start the round here and work stockinette stitch in the round with wheat. When the piece measures 4-4-4-4-3-3 cm / 1½"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1"-1" from the division, decrease 2 stitches under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4th-3rd-3rd-3rd-3rd-3rd round 10-12-13-13-14-14 times = 35-36-38-41-42-45 stitches. When the piece measures 24-24-23-23-23-23 cm / 9½"-9½"-9"-9"-9"-9'' increase 1-4-2-3-2-3 stitches evenly on round = 36-40-40-44-44-48 stitches. Work A.2 (= 4 stitches) in the round. When the whole of A.2 has been worked in height, change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and off white. Work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 5 cm / 2''. Change to wheat, work 1 round of rib as before and bind off with wheat and knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch at the same time as you bind off (yarn overs bind off as normal stitches).
The sleeve measures 35-35-34-34-34-34-34 cm / 13 3/4"-13 3/4"-13½"-13½"-13½"-13½"-13½'' from the division.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hola!, me encanta este patrón, ...ya estoy trabajando en el tercer “Nougat”!. Solo quiero avisarles de un error en el patrón: En la explicación para el CUELLO, después de las indicaciones de tejer tres cm de elástico, dice: “Trabajar 1 vuelta de derecho, en la que se aumentan 3-5-5-4-4-4 puntos...” Y debe decir: “Trabajar 1 vuelta de dereco, en la que se DISMINUYEN 3-5-5-4-4-4 puntos...” Solo eso, Felicitaciones por sus excelentes patrones!

Vous nous laissez Le choix de faire ou pas la rehausse Pourriez vous me dire la différence que cela entraîne ... Le pull sera comment suivant ma décision

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 09:16:

Bonjour Mme Ion, Si vous tricotez la réhausse, l'encolure dos sera légèrement plus haute que l'encolure devant, si vous ne la faites pas, l'encolure dos et devant seront toutes deux identiques. Bon tricot!

Kim Fay 18.02.2019 - 10:58:

For the sleeve decreases the pattern says, 'Decrease like this ever 4th 3rd 3rd round 10-12-13 times' Is this correct? Looking at the diagram it shows the curve for the sleeve as being a more gradual curve and I'm wondering if the decrease should be something like 'decrease like this every 7th 8th round'. It's a lovely pattern and I've knitted the body so just have the sleeves to finish, thank you.

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 11:02:

Dear Mrs Fay, the chart is quite standard, just decrease as described to get the same result as on the picture. Happy knitting!

Jayne Fisher 18.02.2019 - 10:11:

In the colour code shown as boxes to indicate colours used.Both wheat and Cream are indicated by the same box . I.e. a blank box with no symbol inside the box ..

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 11:00:

Dear Mrs Fisher, the square with no sign inside (= 1st symbol) is a stitch worked with off white, the stitches worked with wheat are the one with the - ie the 2nd symbol under diagram text. Happy knitting!

Sandra 20.12.2018 - 17:08:

The pattern does not work out when you knit the next few rows, if you increase evenly on the row at arrow 2. Can you be more specific?

DROPS Design 21.12.2018 kl. 07:53:

Dear Sandra, after increasing 48 sts at arrow-1, you have 144 sts (12 repeats of A.1 in width), on arrow-2 you increase 60 sts evenly = 204 sts = 17 repeats of A.1 in width. After increasing you will always have a number of sts divisible by 12 (= number of sts in A.1) so that you can repeat A.1 in width more times than on previous row. Happy knitting!

Sandra 20.12.2018 - 16:40:

I am stuck at the yoke in pattern A.1. I don't know where / when to increase the 48stitches in the row at arrow 2, in order for the pattern in the following 3rd row etc. to match up. I tried increasing evenly on the row by dividing 120 by 48 = 2.5 (k2, m1; k3, m1), however pattern didn't work out. Can you advise please?

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 16:58:

Dear Sandra, increase evenly on the row - read here how to calculate how to decrease evenly- the pattern will not lined up, just repeat the 12 sts in A.1 as before over all sts. Happy knitting!

2De meerdering vlg patroon gedaan (180st) en hoe kan t dat t patroon niet overeen komt met de tekening. Ik zie dat de meerderingen niet meegetekend zijn op het patroon.

Hei, aloitin puseron koossa M. Kaula-aukko vaikuttaa tosi pieneltä. Vaikuttaako siihen se, että aloitin suoraan 2 oikein 2 nurin -joustinneuleella, eli joustaako enemmän, jos neulon yhden oikean kerroksen ennen joustinta?

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 18:07:

Hei, en usko että neuleesta tulisi joustavampi vaikka neulosit sen oikean kerroksen. Olethan tarkistanut puseron mitat mittapiirroksesta? On myös tärkeää, että neuletiheytesi on oikea.
