INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 8.2. In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 8th stitch; on the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1.

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

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

YOKE:
Cast on 82-84-88-92-96-102 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and Paris. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, on the last round of the ridges increase 10-13-14-18-22-23 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced) = 92-97-102-110-118-125 stitches. On the next round work rib as follows: *Knit 1 /purl 1 *, repeat from *-*. Work rib for 4-5-6-7-7-8 cm / 1 ½"-1 7/8"-2 3/8"-2 ¾"-2 ¾"-3 1/8". On the next round work A.1 over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 132-142-152-168-180-190 stitches.

Work rib as before for 4-5-6-7-7-8 cm / 1 ½"-1 7/8"-2 3/8"-2 ¾"-2 ¾"-3 1/8", then work A.1, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 172-187-202-226-242-255 stitches. NOTE! Finish the round in A.1 with the 1 yarn over and knit 2 together, with knit 0-1-0-0-0-1 stitch. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

Work rib as before for 4-5-6-7-7-8 cm / 1 ½"-1 7/8"-2 3/8"-2 ¾"-2 ¾"-3 1/8", then work A.1; on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 212-232-252-284-304-320 stitches.

The next round is worked as follows: Knit the first 31-34-37-41-45-49 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve edge, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 62-68-74-82-90-98 stitches (= front piece), place the next 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 31-34-37-41-45-49 stitches (= half back piece). Body and sleeve edges are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 136-148-164-180-200-220 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches cast on. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 3 cm / 1'' from the separation increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP (for sides of body) (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 7-7-6½-5-7-6½ cm a total of 5 times = 156-168-184-200-220-240 stitches. When the piece measures 35-34-33-32-34-33 cm / 13 ¾"-13 3/8"-13"-12 ½"-13 3/8"-13" knit 1 round from the right side where you increase 24-24-28-30-34-36 stitches evenly on round = 180-192-212-230-254-276 stitches. Work rib (knit 1 /purl 1) for 3 cm / 1'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The top measures approx.60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Place the 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50-54-60-68-72-74 stitches. Work rib (knit 1 / purl 1) for 3 cm / 1'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Work the other sleeve edge in the same way.

Hei Hvor mye ekstra garn bør jeg beregne hvis jeg har lyst til å strikke den i str. S med lange ermer?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 16:05:

Hej, du skal nok regne med ca 3 nøgler mere :)

Yvonne 24.07.2018 - 16:44:

Hallo, ik kom er niet uit bij het opzetten van de nieuwe steken bij het mouwtje. Doe je dat in de laatste steken van de steken op de draad (horizontaal dus) of in de laatste steek van de steek op de draad en de bovenliggende steken (verticaal dus)?

DROPS Design 26.07.2018 kl. 11:19:

Dag Yvonne, Deze nieuwe steken komen onder de oksel en je zet ze dus horizontaal op. Daarna brei je de mouw in de rondte.

Susi 27.06.2018 - 22:59:

En la talla M, en el canesú , al aumentar quedan 97 puntos, pero al hacer el elástico: 1 punto derecho, 1 punto revés...al finalizar la vuelta quedan 2 puntos juntos del derecho....¿Hay algún error en los números?

DROPS Design 08.07.2018 kl. 18:06:

Hola Susi. Como en el siguiente dibujo, después del punto elástico necesito un número de puntos par, puedes comenzar con el número par el elástico también. De todas formas, tu pregunta ha sido enviada al departamento de diseño para ver si hay algún error.

Mi piace il modello e il colore. Simpatica, sfiziosa, estiva.
