INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1:
All increases are done from right side.
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole. Work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Work until 1 stitch remains before marker in the side, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, make 1 yarn over. Repeat in the other side. On next round knit yarns over twisted to avoid holes. Work the new stitches in stocking stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked top down. Work first front and back piece separately, back and forth down to armholes, then work body in the round. Work sleeves back and forth on circular needle.

BACK PIECE:
Work right shoulder as follows: 
Cast on 16-17-17-18-19-20 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm with Belle.
ROW 1 (= right side): 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above (= towards the neck), knit 10-11-11-12-13-14, 3 stitches in garter stitch (= towards armhole).
ROW 2: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, purl until 3 stitches remain, 3 edge stitches in garter stitch.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row 3 more times (= 4 times in total) = 8 rows.
On next row increase 1 stitch inside the 3 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 17-18-18-19-20-21 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side and put piece aside. Piece measures approx. 4 cm from cast-on edge and down.
Work left shoulder as follows: 
Cast on and work as right shoulder but reversed. I.e. when increasing 1 stitch towards the neck increase 1 stitch before the 3 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck on 9th row. Work 1 row from wrong side.
Now work left and right shoulder together as follows:
Turn piece (= left shoulder) and work as before over all stitches and cast on 35-35-37-37-39-39 new stitches for neck at the end of row, then work the 17-18-18-19-20-21 stitches from right shoulder on to needle = 69-71-73-75-79-81 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work the new stitches cast on for neck mid front in garter stitch, work the other stitches on back piece in stocking stitch and garter stitch as before.
When 2 ridges have been worked over the new stitches for neck, work pattern while at the same time increasing for armhole as follows: READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!

Begin from right side and work pattern as follows:
3 stitches in garter stitch, 13-14-15-16-18-19 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 (= 7 stitches), work from row with star in A.2 (= 23 stitches), A.1, 13-14-15-16-18-19 stitches in stocking stitch, 3 stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern back and forth like this (when diagrams have been worked vertically, repeat them vertically until finished measurements).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-14-14-12-11-9 cm from cast-on edge on shoulder, increase 1 stitch inside the 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side for armhole. Increase like this on every row from right side 3-5-7-10-12-16 times in total = 75-81-87-95-103-113 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side after last increase and put piece aside. Piece measures 18-18-19-20-20-21 cm from shoulder and down. Put piece aside and work the front piece.

FRONT PIECE:
Work left shoulder as follows: 
Cast on 16-17-17-18-19-20 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm with Belle.
ROW 1 (= right side): 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above (= towards the neck), knit 10-11-11-12-13-14, 3 stitches in garter stitch (= towards armhole).
ROW 2: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, purl until 3 stitches remain, 3 edge stitches in garter stitch.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row 8 more times (= 9 times in total) = 18 rows.
On next row increase 1 stitch inside the 3 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck as on back piece = 17-18-18-19-20-21 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side and put piece aside. Piece measures approx. 8 cm from cast-on edge and down.
Work right shoulder as follows: 
Cast on and work as left shoulder but reversed. I.e. when increasing 1 stitch towards the neck increase 1 stitch before the 3 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck on 19th row. Work 1 row from wrong side.
Now work right and left shoulder together as follows:
Turn piece (= right shoulder) and work as before over all stitches and cast on 35-35-37-37-39-39 new stitches for neck at the end of row, then work the 17-18-18-19-20-21 stitches from left shoulder on to needle = 69-71-73-75-79-81 stitches. Work the new stitches cast on for neck mid front in garter stitch, work the other stitches on front piece in stocking stitch and garter stitch as before.
When 2 ridges have been worked over the new stitches for neck, work pattern while at the same time increasing for armhole as follows: READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!

Begin from right side and work pattern as follows:
3 stitches in garter stitch, 13-14-15-16-18-19 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1 (= 7 stitches), work from 1st row in A.2 (= 23 stitches), A.1, 13-14-15-16-18-19 stitches in stocking stitch, 3 stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern back and forth like this (when diagrams have been worked vertically, repeat them vertically until finished measurements).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-14-14-12-11-9 cm from cast-on edge on shoulder, increase 1 stitch inside the 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side for armhole. Increase like this on every row from right side 3-5-7-10-12-16 times in total = 75-81-87-95-103-113 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side after last increase and put piece aside. Piece measures 18-18-19-20-20-21 cm from shoulder and down.

Now work as follows from right side: Turn and work over all stitches on front piece, cast on 4-6-8-10-12-14 new stitches for armhole, insert a marker thread in the middle of these new stitches (= 2-3-4-5-6-7 stitches on each side of marker thread), work the 75-81-87-95-103-113 stitches from back piece on to same circular needle, and cast on 4-6-8-10-12-14 new stitches for armhole, insert a marker thread in the middle of these new stitches (= 2-3-4-5-6-7 stitches on each side of marker thread).

BODY:
= 158-174-190-210-230-254 stitches. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Then work in the round on circular needle. Work pattern and stocking stitch as before, but over the middle 10-12-14-16-18-20 stitches in each side (i.e. 5-6-7-8-9-10 stitches on each side of marker thread in each side) work in garter stitch. When 2 ridges have been worked over stitches in each side, continue in stocking stitch, A.1 and A.2 as before. When piece measures 4 cm, increase 2 stitches in each side of piece - read INCREASE TIP-2! Increase like this every 7th-7th-7th-7th-8th-8th round 13 times in total = 210-226-242-262-282-306 stitches. Continue until piece measures 37-39-40-41-43-44 cm (56-58-60-62-64-66 cm in total from shoulder). Work 2 ridges. Cast off by knitting. To avoid a tight cast-off edge make 1 yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch. Cast off yarn overs as stitches.

SLEEVES:
Cast on 48-50-52-54-56-60 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 2 ridges back and forth. Then work in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When piece measures 6-9-9-7-11-9 cm, increase 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side - remember INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this every 20th-14th-10th-8th-6th-6th row 5-6-8-10-11-12 times, then when piece measures 37-36-36-35-34-34 cm (= after last increase) increase every other row 6 times = 70-74-80-86-90-96 stitches. Sleeve measures approx. 42-41-41-40-39-39 cm. Now cast off for sleeve cap at beginning of every row in each side as follows: Cast off 4-4-4-5-5-6 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 5 times, 1 stitch 0-1-2-3-5-6 times, 2 stitches 4-5-5-5-5-5 times and 4 stitches 1 time = 18-16-20-22-22-24 stitches. Cast off the remaining stitches. Sleeve measures approx. 50-51-52-52-52-53 cm. Work another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams with grafting stitches. Sew sleeve to body under edge in garter stitch. Sew the seam under the sleeves. Make sure to avoid a tight seam.

Ben klaar met begin van voor en achterkant. Moet nu aan voorkant 8 steken bij maken is dat nog voordat je de drie ribbelsteken breid en aan de andere kant na de drie ribbels en moet er maar 1 makeerdraat tussen de 8 steken. Moet ik dan nog wel daarna de drei ribblesteken doen aan begin en eind van werk.

Joane 25.06.2018 - 10:49:

Is het patroon aan de achterzijde hetzelfde als bij het voorpand? Of worden de 10 naalden steeds herhaald?

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 10:59:

Dag Joane, Het patroon is op het voor- en achterpand hetzelfde. Dus nadat je de 10 naalden vanaf de ster hebt gedaan, herhaal je het patroon vanaf de eerste naald van het telpatroon. (Je start dus alleen bij de ster, maar daarna pak je wel steeds het hele telpatroon in de hoogte)

Ann 24.06.2018 - 21:31:

Ik begin net met de trui en in de beschrijving van het achterpand staan 4 naalden beschreven voor de schouder. Na deze 4 naalden staat dat het werk 4 cm zou zijn? En bij de andere schouder zijn er ineens 9 naalden ipv 4. Hier is iets vergeten...

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 11:06:

Dan Ann, Er stond inderdaad een foutje in de Nederlandse vertaling. Het is nu gecorrigeerd en deze zin is toegevoegd na naald 2: Herhaal de 1e en 2e naald nog 3 keer (= 4 keer in totaal) = 8 naalden.

Maria Elisdotter 21.03.2018 - 11:13:

Hej! Jag ser varken beskrivningen till tröjan eller förklaring till diagrammet. Kan ni vara så snälla och lägga upp det på nytt! Tack ! Mia

DROPS Design 21.03.2018 kl. 12:08:

Hei Maria. Oppskriften og diagramteksten er nå lagt ut. God Fornøyelse!

Pia Sanne Pedersen 09.03.2018 - 17:32:

På 186-14 er der da ikke en fejl i beskrivelse på Hvad den sorte "prik" på linie 13 betyder. Det passer slet ikke med masketal og øvrigt samme beskrivelse som den med "trekanten" betyder?

DROPS Design 14.03.2018 kl. 16:35:

Hej Pia, så er diagramforklaringen lagt ud. Tak for info og god fornøjelse!
