INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 234 stitches), and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 14) = 16.7. In this example, increase alternately after approx. every 16th and 17th stitch.
Increase with yarn overs after the stitches and work the yarn overs twisted on the next round to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 to A.3. See diagram for your size in A.1 and A.2.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The round starts mid back.

YOKE:
Cast on 90-90-100-100-110-110 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Muskat. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Then work as follows – the round starts mid back: *A.1 (= 5 stitches), A.2 (= 5 stitches)*, repeat from *-* to end of round (= 9-9-10-10-11-11 repeats of A.1 and 9-9-10-10-11-11 repeats of A.2) Continue this pattern onwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time in height, there are 234-270-300-300-330-330 stitches on the round. Work 0-1-2-2-3-3 ridges. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Continue with stocking stitch; on the first round with stocking stitch increase 14-10-4-32-22-42 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP = 248-280-304-332-352-372 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch until the piece measures 18-20-21-23-25-27 cm from the cast on edge. Then work as follows (from the right side): Work the first 36-40-43-48-53-58 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 52-60-66-70-70-70 stitches on a thread (= sleeve edge), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches under the sleeve, work the next 72-80-86-96-106-116 stitches (= front piece), place the next 52-60-66-70-70-70 stitches on a thread (= sleeve edge), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches under the sleeve, work the remaining 36-40-43-48-53-58 stitches (= half back piece).

BODY:
There are 160-176-192-212-236-260 stitches on the body. Insert a marker in each side of the body, in the middle of the new stitches cast on under the sleeves (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 new stitches on each side of the marker). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Continue with stocking stitch. When the piece measures 4 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2½ cm a total of 10 times = 200-216-232-252-276-300 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch until the piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-31 cm, knit 1 round where the number of stitches is adjusted to 204-216-228-252-276-300 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Work A.3 over all stitches (= 17-18-19-21-23-25 repeats in width). Work A.3 one time in height = 272-288-304-336-368-400 stitches. Then work 2 ridges over all stitches. Cast off. The piece measures a total of approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Place the stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece onto double pointed needles size 4 mm = 52-60-66-70-70-70 stitches. Knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 60-68-76-80-82-84 stitches. Work 2 ridges, then cast off. Work the other sleeve edge in the same way.

Jeg ville også spørge til diagrammet på 8 række hvor der pludselig mangler 2 masker i A1? Der bliver taget 2 masker ind på række 7 uden omslag og alligevel fortsættes der med 9 masker, men der er altså KUN 7 i følge diagrammet på 7. række Nu vælger jeg så at slå om 2 gange så der bli'r 9 masker og håber det vil passe videre opad Håber på hurtigt svar så jeg kan komme videre.

Hei Kate. Du har helt rett i at det skal være kast på rad 8 i A1. Takk for at du gjorde oss oppmerksomme på det, oppskriften har nå blitt rettet

Nicole Obrock 25.03.2018 - 05:00:

Der Fehler betrifft A1 generell, egal welche Grösse. Bitte mal überprüfen. Habe den Pullover inzwischen fertig gestrickt und er ist so schön geworden, dass ich ihn noch mal in anderer Farbe stricke.

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 09:34:

Liebe Frau Obrock, danke für Ihren Rückmeldung, A.1 wurde korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susanne 21.03.2018 - 05:30:

På række 8 i A1 og A2, går mønstret ikke længere op, så der må være en fejl, før denne række?? Jeg strikker str. L

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 12:16:

Hej Susanne, tak for info, vi kommer snart tilbage med et nyt diagam :)

Nicole Obrock 23.02.2018 - 22:34:

A1 Reihe 7 ist ein Fehler. Die 1. und letzte Masche müssen ein Umschlag sein. Andernfalls fehlen einem 2 Maschen pro Mustersatz. Dass es so sein muss erkennt man auch in Reihe 23. Da ist es richtig eingezeichnet.

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 10:33:

Liebe Frau Obrock, gerne prüfen wir Diagram, welche Größe meinen Sie hier?

Kate Andersen 22.02.2018 - 22:50:

Super flot model, ville SÅ gerne lave den nu, så jeg vil høre hvornår opskriften kommer? Håber snart. Har lige lavet den fersken farvede cardigan med hul mønster på ærmerne.

Den er fantastisk sød , kan næsten ikke vente med at komme igang . Det kunne måske blive den , hvis det drops garn jeg lige nu venter på , slår til . Til denne model . PS .den sidste bluse jeg strikkede var Drops 152-9

If using different models for the photoshoots, then models of all ages should be used not only very young or granny models. Some clothing simply does no suit everyone due to bodytype and /or age

Desirée Forsman Strömner 14.01.2018 - 18:12:

Fin och användbar, gillar A-modeller.

Sleyp Linda 10.01.2018 - 11:44:

Mooi model voor zomerse avonden
