INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1).

INCREASE TIP-1 (for increases on yoke):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 116 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 16) = 7.25. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 7th stitch. On the next round, work the yarn overs twisted into the pattern to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for increases on body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased), increase like this at both marker threads (= a total of 4 stitches increased). The yarn overs are not worked twisted on the next round, there will be holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 116-120-126-132-139-144 stitches with circular needle size 2.5 mm and BabyMerino. The round starts mid back. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above.
Knit 1 round and increase 16-24-30-36-41-36 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 132-144-156-168-180-180 stitches.
Purl 1 round (the yarn overs are worked twisted to avoid holes). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Change to circular needle size 3 mm.
Work A.1a (= 12 stitches) in the round over all stitches (= 11-12-13-14-15-15 times in width)
Continue the pattern like this AT THE SAME TIME as you increase evenly on each round marked with and arrow in diagram A.1 as follows:
Each time you increase 12 stitches, work A.1 one more time in width.
Each time you increase 24 stitches, work A.1 two more times in width.
Each time you increase 36 stitches, work A.1 three more times in width.
INCREASE 1: Increase 24-24-24-24-24-36 stitches = 156-168-180-192-204-216 stitches.
INCREASE 2: Increase 24-24-24-24-24-36 stitches = 180-192-204-216-228-252 stitches.
INCREASE 3: Increase 24 stitches = 204-216-228-240-252-276 stitches.
INCREASE 4: Increase 24 stitches = 228-240-252-264-276-300 stitches.
INCREASE 5: Increase 24 stitches = 252-264-276-288-300-324 stitches.
INCREASE 6: Increase 24 stitches = 276-288-300-312-324-348 stitches.
When A.1a has been worked 1 time in height the piece measures approx. 14 cm from the neck edge. Now work A.1b over A.1a and then continue to increase as follows:
INCREASE 7: Increase 12-24-24-24-24-24 stitches = 288-312-324-336-348-372 stitches.
INCREASE 8: Increase 12-12-24-24-24-24 stitches = 300-324-348-360-372-396 stitches.
INCREASE 9: Increase 12-12-24-24-24-24 stitches = 312-336-372-384-396-420 stitches.
INCREASE 10: Increase 12-12-12-12-24-24 stitches = 324-348-384-396-420-444 stitches.
The increases are now finished in sizes S, M and L, but continue in sizes XL, XXL and XXXL as follows:
INCREASE 11: Increase 12-24-24 stitches = 408-444-468 stitches.
INCREASE 12: Increase 12-12-24 stitches = 420-456-492 stitches.

ALL SIZES:
= 324-348-384-420-456-492 stitches (A.1b is now repeated 27-29-32-35-38-41 times in width).
Work pattern until the piece measures 20-22-23-25-27-29 cm from the cast-on edge. Now divide the piece into body and sleeves as follows: (The stitches which do not fit into the pattern are knitted when the stitches are knitted and purled when the stitches are purled). Work pattern as before over the first 44-49-53-60-66-73 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 74-76-86-90-96-100 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 10 new stitches on the needle (= side under sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches, work pattern as before over the next 88-98-106-120-132-146 stitches (= front piece), place the next 74-76-86-90-96-100 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 10 new stitches on the needle (= side under sleeve), insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches and work pattern as before over the last 44-49-53-60-66-73 stitches (= half back piece).
Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 196-216-232-260-284-312 stitches. Continue the pattern, the stitches which do not fit into the pattern under the sleeve are knitted when the stitches are knitted and purled when the stitches are purled. When A.1b has been worked 1 time in height the piece measures approx. 27-27-27-30-30-30 cm. Continue working in stocking stitch. On the next round increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker thread – read INCREASE TIP-2! Increase like this every 4th round until the piece measures 32-32-33-33-33-33 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves = approx. 276-300-324-348-380-412 stitches. Change to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work A.2 in the round over all stitches. When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height, the piece measures approx. 35-35-36-36-36-36 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves and approx. 55-57-59-61-63-65 cm from the neck edge. Cast off (make sure you cast off loosely; you can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary).

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Place the 74-76-86-90-96-100 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 10 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 84-86-96-100-106-110 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 10 new stitches. Continue working A.1b over the stitches which fit into the pattern; the stitches which do not fit mid under sleeve are knitted when the stitches are knitted and purled when the stitches are purled. When A.1b has been completed in height, the sleeve measures approx. 7-5-4-5-3-1 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body. Continue with stocking stitch.
On the next round decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread – read DECREASE TIP! Decrease like this every 1½-1½-1-1-1-1 cm a total of 14-15-19-20-22-23 times = 56-56-58-60-62-64 stitches.
Continue working until the sleeve measures 33-32-31-29-28-26 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work A.2 over all stitches.
When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height cast off all stitches (make sure you cast off loosely, you can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary).
The sleeve measures approx. 36-35-34-32-31-29 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Where is the pattern chart for A2? I checked 'to the left' (where the person from Germany was told to look, and it's not there. Is chart A1b actually chart A2? Help! Thanks :)

DROPS Design 07.10.2018 kl. 23:03:

Dear Vickie, the pattern for A.2 is just to the left of the pattern A.1a It is small, the column of two stitches and 14 round/ rows. Happy Knitting!

Sabina Jansen 01.09.2018 - 13:31:

Eigentlich komme ich gut zurecht mit dieser Anleitung. Aber wo ist dasMuster A2??? Hab jetzt alles schon mehrfach ausgedruckt, finde es nicht !! Hilfe

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 11:22:

Liebe Frau Janse, A.2 ist links auf der Seite (vor A.1a in der Grösse S-M-L), es wird über 2 M und 14 Reihen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ricarda Klein 23.06.2018 - 17:52:

Obwohl ich genau nach Anleitung gestrickt, habe rollt am Rumpf die untere Abschlusskante ein. Schade und ärgerlich.

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 09:36:

Liebe Frau Klein, Sie können den Pullover mit Stecknadeln auf einer geeigneten Unterlage spannen, anfeuchten (z.B. mit einer Sprühflasche für Blumen) und trocknen lassen, danach entfernen Sie die Stecknadeln, dann sollte sich der Rand nicht mehr rollen.

Ricarda Klein 01.06.2018 - 16:03:

Hallo und guten Tag ich habe eine Frage zum Diagramm. Wie sind die eingerückten 2 Zeilen in oberen Viertel zu verstehen ?

DROPS Design 01.06.2018 kl. 16:54:

Liebe Frau Klein, am Anfang der Reihe, stricken Sie die erste Masche aber diese Masche wird dann mit der letzten Maschen im letzten Rapport gestrickt. Am ende jedes Rapport, wird die letzte Maschen zusammen mit der ersten Maschen vom nächsten Rapport gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kari 18.05.2018 - 10:31:

Jeg har kommet til rad 35 i diagrammet A1a og jeg ser at alt forflytter seg med en maske, men hva gjør jeg med den første masken? Jeg kan ikke strikke kun 2 m rett for da forflytter motivet seg. Skal jeg strikke 3 masker eller hvordan gjør jeg det for å få det til å stemme ?

DROPS Design 25.05.2018 kl. 10:48:

Hei Kari. Hvis du ser på den siste masken i A.1a på samme omgang ser du at det er en felling som strekker seg 1 maske inn i neste rapport av A.1a. Det er denne fellingen som ser ut som en mangelende maske på starten av rapporten – men første maske blir altså strikket som en del av fellingen på forrige rapport. Strikk den alle første masken på omgangern rett, fortsett diagrammet som vanlig (2 rett, kast, felling), og når du kommer til slutten av omgangen vil omgangens første maske inngå i fellingen til den siste rapporten av A.1a. God fornøyelse.

Aurelie 18.03.2018 - 17:01:

Bonjour, je crois que je ne comprends pas bien le début du diagramme. Puisque le pull se tricote du haut en bas, dois je commencer le diagramme ( 3ème rang maille envers) ou par le bas( 3ème rang maille glissée) ? Lorsque je glisse 1 maille à l’endroit tricote la suivante et passe par dessus, je perds une maille à chaque fois? J’es Que mes questions sont assez claires. Cordialement. Merci pour ces beaux modèles.

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 10:56:

Bonjour Aurélie, les diagrammes se lisent toujours en commençant en bas à droite et de droite à gauche tous les tours. Suivez bien les symboles du diagramme tels qu'ils sont décrits, sans rien modifier. Bon tricot!
