INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

KNITTING TIP:
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 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.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
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 and wheat.
Knit 1 round. Change to off white and work rib (knit 2 / purl 2) for 3-3-4-4-5-5 cm. 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.
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 KNITTING TENSION!
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 stocking stitch until the piece measures 24-25-26-27-28-29 cm from the cast-on edge mid front and down (if the knitting tension 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 stocking stitch. When the piece measures 4 cm decrease 2 stitches in each side – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm a total of 3 times = 126-140-156-174-192-210 stitches. When the piece measures 15-15-17-17-19-19 cm increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3 cm a total of 5 times = 146-160-176-194-212-230 stitches. When the piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm 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 and work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch at the same time as you cast off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches).
The jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm 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 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 stocking stitch in the round with wheat. When the piece measures 4-4-4-4-3-3 cm 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 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 and off white. Work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 5 cm. Change to wheat, work 1 round of rib as before and cast off with wheat and knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch at the same time as you cast off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches).
The sleeve measures 35-35-34-34-34-34-34 cm from the division.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

En el patrón aparecen fotos con combinaciones diferentes a las del modelo, a qué patrón corresponden?

Geachte lezer. Dit is een mooi patroon. Ik heb uw aanwijzingen voor het meerderen gevolgd en bij de tweede meerdering keurig om de 2, 3 steken gemeerderd. Hoe krijg ik nu het patroon weer zoals op de tekening. Met andere woorden: dat het netjes doorloopt. Met vriendelijke groet, M. Voets

DROPS Design 08.04.2018 kl. 21:29:

Hallo M. Voets, Het is de bedoeling dat je na het minderen het aantal steken op de naald hebt dat aangegeven staat. Dit is een aantal dat deelbaar is door 12, waardoor het telpatroon er precies in past.

Kari Borge 01.03.2018 - 12:06:

Går det an at dere i tillegg til oppskrifter som strikkes ovenfra og ned, også kan lage oppskrifter der det strikkes rett vei dvs. nedenfra og opp?

DROPS Design 01.03.2018 kl. 12:55:

Hei Kari. Det har dessverre ikke designavdeligen mulighet til å gjøre. Mye jobb for et resultat som vil så si bli det samme. mvh Drops design

Susanne Jensen 20.02.2018 - 07:42:

Hej, er det muligt at erstatte nogle af farverne i mønstret med brushed Alpaca Silk? Og altså lave en blandet bluse, med både Air og brushed alpaca silk :-)

DROPS Design 20.02.2018 kl. 10:50:

Hei Susanne Ja det er fuldt muligt å blande Air med Burshed Alpaca Silk det blir sikkert en flott kombinasjon. Begge disse garner kommer fra samme garngruppe C https://www.garnstudio.com/yarn-groups.php?cid=1 og innenfor denne gruppe med garn har alle ca samme strikkefasthet og kan blandes om hverandre Go Fornøyelse

Wirklich harmonische Zusammenstellung softer Farbtöne. Besonders, schmeichelt jedem Typ.
