INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

SEED STITCH (double vertically):
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: Knit over knit and purl over purl.
ROUND 3: Purl over knit and knit over purl.
ROUND 4: Repeat 2nd round.
Repeat rounds 1 to 4.

STRIPES (yoke and body):
STRIPE 1: 3 strands pink for 23-23-24-25-25-26 cm / 9"-9"-9½"-9 3/4"-9 3/4"-10 1/4''.
STRIPE 2: 2 strands pink + 1 strand gray blue (= 3 strands) for 8-9-9-9-10-10 cm / 4''.
STRIPE 3: 1 strand pink + 2 strands gray blue (= 3 strands) for 8-9-9-9-10-10 cm / 4''.
STRIPE 4: 3 strands gray blue for 24-24-25-26-26-27 cm / 9½"-9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4"-10 1/4"-10½''.

STRIPES (sleeve):
STRIPE 1: Continue with 2 strands pink + 1 strand gray blue (= 3 strands) until 8-9-9-9-10-10 cm / 3"-3½"-3½"-3½"-4"-4'' in total have been worked (i.e. approx. 0-2-3-4-5-6 cm / 0"-3/4"-1"-1½"-2"-2 1/4'' on yoke and approx. 8-7-6-5-5-4 cm / 3"-2 3/4"-2 1/4"-2"-2"-1½'' on sleeve).
STRIPE 2: 1 strand pink + 2 strands gray blue (= 3 strands) for 8-9-9-9-10-10 cm / 3"-3½"-3½"-3½"-4"-4''.
STRIPE 3: 3 strands gray blue until finished measurements (approx. 21-19-19-18-17-16 cm / 8 1/4"-7½"-7½"-7"-6 3/4"-6 1/4'').

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of every A.1 (= 8 stitches increased on round):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in seed stitch (double vertically).

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on round (e.g. 76 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 4) = 19. In this example knit approx. every 18th and 19th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sleeves):
Work until 4 stitches remain before marker and knit 2 together, work 4 stitches in seed stitch (= marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Work sleeves in the round on a short circular needle/double pointed needles. Piece is knitted in 3 strands Kid-Silk.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 76-80-84-84-88-96 stitches with 3 strands pink on a short circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 4 cm / 1½''. Knit 1 round while decreasing 4 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly) = 72-76-80-80-84-92 stitches. Insert a marker thread mid back. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Switch to circular needle size 6 mm / US 10.

YOKE:
Now work STRIPES (yoke and body) – see explanation above, and pattern as follows: 7-8-9-9-10-12 stitches in SEED STITCH (double vertically) – see explanation above, (= half back piece), make 1 yarn over, A.1 (= 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over, 8 stitches in seed stitch (double vertically) (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, 17-19-21-21-23-27 stitches in seed stitch (double vertically) (= front piece), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, 8 stitches in seed stitch (double vertically) (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, 8-9-10-10-11-13 stitches in seed stitch (double vertically) (= half back piece). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! First increase for RAGLAN - see explanation above, is now done. Continue like this and increase every other round 22-23-25-27-29-31 times in total = 248-260-280-296-316-340 stitches. Continue until piece measures 23-25-27-29-30-32 cm / 9"-9 3/4"-10½"-11½"-11 3/4"-12½'' from marker thread mid back.
Work next round as follows:
Work as before over the first 32-34-37-39-42-46 stitches (= half back piece), cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeves), and slip the next 58-60-64-68-72-76 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), work the next 67-71-77-81-87-95 stitches (= front piece), cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeves), slip the next 58-60-64-68-72-76 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), work the remaining 33-35-38-40-43-47 stitches (= half back piece). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 144-152-168-176-192-208 stitches. Continue with seed stitch and stripes as before until piece measures 40-40-40-40-41-41 cm / 15 3/4"-15 3/4"-15 3/4"-15 3/4"-16"-16". Bind off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make a yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch while binding off (bind off yarn over as stitch) to make the bind-off edge more elastic. Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm / 26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30''-30¾'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVES:
Slip the 58-60-64-68-72-76 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches mid under sleeve = 64-66-72-76-82-86 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches in the side under the sleeve. Continue with double seed stitch and STRIPES (sleeve) - see explanation above. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every 3rd-3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd-2nd round 18-18-21-22-25-26 times in total = 28-30-30-32-32-34 stitches. Continue to work until piece measures 33-31-30-28-28-26 cm / 13"-12 1/4"-11 3/4"-11"-11"-10 1/4''. Knit 1 round while increasing 4-6-6-8-8-10 stitches evenly = 32-36-36-40-40-44 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. Switch back to double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 and bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the bind-off edge is not too tight. Sleeve measures approx. 37-35-34-32-32-30 cm / 14½"-13 3/4"-13½"-12½"-12½"-11 3/4''. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Hello, at the moment knitting sleeves of this sweater, shouldn’t it be on DECRASE TIP 2, 4 stitches remaining before marker thread instead of 2, because when i leave 2 sts before, marker thread does not comes in the middle of 4 moss sts, or i’m understand something wrong? Thank you

Love this pattern & have downloaded it ........... however ....... I have a wish - it would be so much easier if your patterns had actual measurements instead of "S - XXXL" :) That simple change would avoid one having to look at the diagram, double the cm to see the all-around dimension, convert to inches (if you are me) and repeat if you wish to compare sizes ......... Failing that, perhaps a size chart included in the Terms & Sizes section?

DROPS Design 12.05.2018 kl. 08:20:

Dear Helen, since different styles require different ways of fitting, different ease for example, also people prefer different ease, we do not have a general sizing chart. Giving the "S-XXXL" type of sizing will give you the idea which size would be suitable, but you also cannot avoid to chek the measurements for each individual patterns. Happy Crafting!

Bonjour Mme Zenatti, vous trouverez ici quelques indications pour vous aider à ajuster les explications, n'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin pour toute assistance complémentaire. Attention toutefois, ce pull se tricote avec 3 fils Kid-Silk, Lima ne vous donnera pas le même échantillon ni les mêmes mesures - voir ici les alternatives possibles. Bon tricot!

This sweater is AMAZING!! I cannot wait to knit it! I always love the babyalpaca with kid silk!!!! However, could please start adding the size the model is wearing? It can be very frustrating, because I'll knit something for my size and it won't have the same fit because the model might be wearing Medium instead of her Xs.

Joanne Coull 24.01.2018 - 17:37:

I love this pattern . When will it be available. Have just the wool for it in my stash.

Lisette Van Raadshooven 16.01.2018 - 20:59:

Love this one! Beautiful colour combo.

Blir en meget lett og luksøriøs genser. Gleder meg.
