INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over between 2 stitches. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together. 
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Yoke and body are worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-108-112-120 stitches on a short circular needle size 4 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work next round (round begins mid back) as follows:
Knit 17-18-19-21-22-24 and increase 1 stitch – read INCREASE TIP (= half back piece), * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work from *-* 12 times in total (= 12 stitches increased = sleeve), knit 34-36-38-42-44-48 and increase 3-1-3-1-3-3 stitches evenly (= front piece), work from *-* 12 times in total (= 12 stitches increased = sleeve) and finish by knitting 17-18-19-21-22-24 and increasing 2-0-2-0-2-2 stitches evenly (= half back piece) = 122-122-130-134-142-150 stitches.
Knit 1 round, work all yarn overs twisted, they should not make holes.
Then work next round as follows:
Knit 15-15-19-19-19-23, A.1a (= 6 stitches), knit 18-18-14-16-20-16, A.2a (= 6 stitches), knit 31-31-39-39-39-47, A.1a over the next 6 stitches, knit 18-18-14-16-20-16, A.2a over the next 6 stitches and finish by knitting 16-16-20-20-20-24 stitches (= 2 stitches increased in every A.1a and A.2a = 8 stitches increased in total) = 130-130-138-142-150-158 stitches.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Now increase for raglan AT THE SAME TIME work pattern, read both sections before continuing:

RAGLAN:
On next round increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over on each side of every A.1 and A.2 (= 8 stitches increased in total). Knit the increased yarn overs on next round round to make holes. Increase like this every other round 21-25-27-30-33-36 times in total.

PATTERN:
When A.1a and A.2a have been worked 1 time vertically, work A.1b over A.1a and A.2b over A.2a. Repeat diagram A.1b and A.2b vertically.
When all increases for raglan are done, there are 298-330-354-382-414-446 stitches on round. Then work A.1c over A.1b and A.2c over A.2b (adjust which round to start on according to pattern, i.e. continue cable as before and work eyelet row on each side of every cable).

Continue to work until piece measures 20-23-24-27-29-31 cm. Work 1 round while decreasing 2 stitches evenly over every A.1c and A.2c (= 8 stitches decreased in total) = 290-322-346-374-406-438 stitches.
Continue working in stocking stitch over all stitches.
Now divide yoke for body and sleeves as follows: Knit 40-44-48-53-59-65 (= half back piece), slip the next 64-72-76-80-84-88 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 stitches under sleeve, insert 1 marker in the middle of the new stitches, knit 81-89-97-107-119-131 (= front piece), slip the next 64-72-76-80-84-88 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8 stitches under sleeve, insert 1 marker in the middle of the new stitches and finish by knitting 41-45-49-54-60-66 stitches (= half back piece) = 178-194-210-230-254-278 stitches.
Finish body and sleeves separately.

BODY:
= 178-194-210-230-254-278 stitches. Work A.3 (= 6 stitches) over the middle stitches in the side under each sleeve (= 3 stitches on each side of each marker), work the remaining stitches in stocking stitch. When piece measures 31-30-31-30-30-30 cm (there are approx. 218-230-250-266-290-314 stitches on needle) from where body was divided from sleeves, switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work 3 ridges. Cast off. Make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge, cast off with 1 larger needle size if needed.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Slip the 64-72-76-80-84-88 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and pick in addition up 1 new stitch in each of the 8 stitches cast on under sleeve = 72-80-84-88-92-96 stitches on needle. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches under the sleeve. Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 2 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 2½-2-1½-1½-1½-1 cm 15-18-19-20-21-22 times in total = 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches.
When piece measures 44-41-41-38-36-34 cm, switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work 3 ridges in garter stitch. Cast off by knitting. Make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge, cast off with 1 larger needle size if needed.
Sleeve measures 45-42-42-39-37-35 cm in total from where sleeve was divided from body. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Vous dites "Juste après le jeté, tricotez 1 tour comme avant puis, tricotez A.1C et A.2C " Si je résume; rang 53 : dernière torsade de A1b, rg 54: jeté, rg 55 : normal- rg 56 : jeté (dernier de A1b) puis rg 57 : comme avant en tricotant les jeté à l'endroit comme vous le dites- rg 58 : premier rang de A1c avec jeté et rg 59: rg normal à en croire le diagramme A1c alors que je devrais avoir la torsade (5ème rang), Je suis désolée de ne pas comprendre

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 13:40:

Bonjour Pascaline, tout à fait, vous allez devoir commencer les jours de A.1c/A2c au 58ème rang et faire la torsade de ces 2 diagrammes au 59ème rang, et continuer ainsi, avec les jours tous les 2 tours de chaque côté de A.1c/A.2c et la torsade en décalage mais toujours tous les 5 tours pour ne pas la décaler entre les diagrammes b et c. Bon tricot!

Pascaline 05.02.2019 - 10:47:

Rebonjour, désolée, je ne comprends pas. L'augmentation par jeté se fait (si je ne me suis pas trompée ) sur les rangs pairs de A1a et A1b, c'est à dire sur les rangs précédents et suivants la torsade. Or, sur A1c, elle se fait sur le rang de la torsade, et sur rang impair, donc ça ne correspond pas..Puis je adapter et faire les jetés sur rangs pair de A1C?

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 11:15:

Bonjour Pascaline, après les augmentations du raglan, vous tricotez A.1C et A.2C au-dessus de A.1b et A.2b, simplement comme avant (= pas de transition entre les deux diagrammes, vous devez avoir le même nombre de rangs entre les torsades). Juste après le jeté, tricotez 1 tour comme avant puis, tricotez A.1C et A.2C (les jours de chaque côté des torsades vont remplacer les jetés des augmentations du raglan). Vous pouvez ajuster les jours pour qu'ils soient tous les rangs pairs, mais les torsades doivent toujours être faites comme avant, avec 5 rangs entre chaque. Bon tricot!

Pascaline 05.02.2019 - 07:54:

Bonjour Je suis bloquée entre A1b /A2b et A1C/A2C. j'ai fini A1b /A2b par la 21ème augmentation par jeté. Avant de commencer A1c et A2C, dois je faire un retour classique pour tricoter les jetés à l'endroit avant de commencer la première ligne A1C/A2c (dans ce cas là, il y a une ligne en plus entre la torsade =6 rangs au lieu de 5). ou dois-je directement commencer A1C/A2C mais alors, il y a deux jetés de suite, le 21ème rang et la première ligne de A1C/A2C ? merci

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 09:24:

Bonjour Pascaline, comme le pull se tricote en rond, on n'a pas de rang "retour", mais au tour suivant, tricotez les mailles comme elles doivent l'être: continuez A.1b et A.2b comme avant (si c'est un rang impair du diagramme, commencez A.1c et A.2c, sinon, tricotez encore une fois A.1b et A.2b et au tour suivant (rang impair de A.1b/A.2b, continuez en suivant A.1c/A.2c, en tricotant les jours avant/après les diagrammes si vous êtes sur un rang impair, et la torsade si vous avez bien 5 rangs depuis la dernière torsade. Bon tricot!

Paco 29.01.2019 - 13:22:

BOnjour, Je ne comprends pas dans l'étape raglan: il est indiqué de faire un jeté de chaque côté A1 et A2. On est bien d accord que sur un tour, il y a 2 A1 et deux A2? Donc, ca augmente de 8 mailles comme vous le précisez (2jetes autour de 4 A1/A2). Je ne vois pas comment vous arrivez au chiffre de "augmenter ainsi 21 fois au total tous les 2 tours(je dirais 2 tours= 16 augmentations) je vous remercie

DROPS Design 29.01.2019 kl. 16:29:

Bonjour Mme Paco, c'est exact, on augmente bien de chaque côté de A.1 et de A.2 soit 8 mailles augmentées par tour d'augmentations. On augmente tous les 2 tours, donc après 2 tours d'augmentations, on aura augmenté un total de 16 mailles, après 3 tours d'augmentations un total de 24 mailles, mais toujours 8 mailles à chaque tour d'augmentations et donc 21 fois tous les 2 tours = 21 x 8 = 168 augmentations sur 21x2 tours = 42 tours. Bon tricot!

Martine PITSCHON 10.09.2018 - 12:19:

Bonjour : je tricote la taille S. Manches : 64m + 8m sous la manche. + 1m ds les 8m montées ? Le total ne peut être 72m ? Faut-il vraiment ajouter ces 8m supplémentaires ? Merci de votre réponse. Martine

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Mme Pitschon, vous aviez mis 64 m en attente pour la manche et vous relevez ensuite 1 maille dans chacune des 8 mailles montées sous la manche lorsque vous les avez mises en attente (ces mailles ont ensuite été tricotées pour les côtés du pull avec le dos/le devant) = on a bien 72 mailles pour la manche. Bon tricot!
