EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Choose diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 260 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 44) = 5.9. In this example, work together approx. each 5th and 6th stitch.

KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working Nordic pattern, it is important that the strands at the back of the piece are not tight. You can use a size larger needle when working pattern if this is a problem.

KNITTING TIP-2 (for yoke):
If the knitting tension is not right in height and you work more rows on 10 cm than described in the text, the yoke will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted for by working 1 extra row of stocking stitch regularly on the yoke.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 4 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease to raglan on each side of each A.5 as follows:
Decrease 1 stitch after A.5 as follows: Slip the last stitch in A.5, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease 1 stitch before A.5 as follows: Work until there is 1 stitch left before A.5, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased). In other words you decrease 2 stitches by each A.5 and a total of 8 stitches on the round.

-------------------------------------------------------

START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up. The sleeves are worked with short circular needle/double pointed needles. The pieces are placed together and the yoke is worked in the round.

BODY:
Cast on 260-288-316-344-376-400 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and light oak. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 5 cm. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 44-48-52-56-64-64 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP = 216-240-264-288-312-336 stitches.
Knit 1 round as follows: Insert 1 marker in the first stitch, knit 107-119-131-143-155-167 stitches, insert 1 marker in the next stitch, knit to end of round. The markers mark the sides of the piece. Then work A.1 over all stitches (= 18-20-22-24-26-28 repeats of 12 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, insert 1 marker in the middle of the round (you will measure from this marker later). Then work A.2 over A.1- read KNITTING TIP-1. When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.3 over A.2. When you have worked as far as the arrow in A.3 (see arrow for your size) work the next round in A.3 as follows:
Cast off 4 stitches, work the next 101-113-125-137-149-161 stitches as before, cast off the next 7 stitches, work the next 101-113-125-137-149-161 stitches as before, cast off the last 3 stitches. The piece measures approx. 32-29-32-32-31-30 cm from the marker (approx. 43-40-45-45-46-45 cm whole length). Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVES:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles; change to short circular needle when necessary. Cast on 48-52-52-56-56-60 stitches with double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and light oak. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 5 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 8-10-8-10-8-10 stitches evenly on round = 40-42-44-46-48-50 stitches.

READ THE WHOLE SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
You work a pattern of approx. 8-8-5-5-4-4 cm, if you wish to adjust the length of the sleeve, do it now – see below. Then work the same pattern stripe as on the body (from the marker to the armhole = approx. 32-29-32-32-31-30 cm), i.e. the whole sleeve should measure approx. 45-42-42-42-40-39 cm. Work as follows:
Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under sleeve). Work 1 round in stocking stitch, then work the next round as follows:
Work A.4a (= 2-3-4-5-0-1 stitches), A.4b (= 12 stitches) a total of 3-3-3-3-4-4 times in width, A.4c (= 2-3-4-5-0-1 stitches). Continue until A.4 has been worked 1 time in height – NOTE: if you would like a longer sleeve, repeat the 2 rows marked with a star to desired length before continuing with the next round in A.4. If you would like a shorter sleeve, just work the desired number of rounds of A.4, but work a minimum of 1 of the purled rounds.
– AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 10-9-9-10-12-12 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread (= 2 stitches increased) – read INCREASE TIP! Increase like this every 2-1½-1½-1½-1-1 cm a total of 16-21-20-19-24-23 times = 72-84-84-84-96-96 stitches. The stitches in A.4a and A.4c and the increased stitches are worked into pattern A.4b as you go. When A.4 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches – A.2 is worked over A.4b and is adjusted out to each side; the increased stitches are worked into the pattern as you go.
When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.3 (= 12 stitches) over A.2. When all the stitches under the sleeve are increased, work A.3 a total of 6-6-7-7-8-8 times in width. When you have worked as far as the arrow in A.3, work the next round as follows:
Cast off 4 stitches, work the next 65-77-77-77-89-89 stitches as before, cast off the last 3 stitches. The sleeve measures approx. 45-42-42-42-40-39 cm. Work 1 more sleeve in the same way.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle as the body, where you cast off stitches for the armholes = 332-380-404-428-476-500 stitches. Start the round in the transition between right sleeve and back piece. Work as follows: * A.5 (= 2 stitches, raglan line), continue with A.3 as before over the next 97-109-121-133-145-157 stitches (= front/back piece), A.5 (= 2 stitches, raglan line), work pattern A.3 as before over the next 65-77-77-77-89-89 stitches (= sleeve) *, work from *-* a total of 2 times – read KNITTING TIP-2.
Continue this pattern and decrease to RAGLAN – read description above, every 2nd round a total of 27-31-32-33-37-39 times. When A.3 has been completed in height, work A.6 (= 12 stitches) over A.3.
After the last decrease to raglan there are 116-132-148-164-180-188 stitches on the round. Continue until A.6 has been completed. The yoke measures approx. 20-23-24-25-27-28 cm.
You can now work an elevation in the back of the neck so that the yoke is slightly higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck is then the same both front and back. Work elevation in back of neck or go straight to working neck if you do not want an elevation.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (this marks the start of the round after the elevation has been worked). Continue with light oak and knit to mid back, insert 1 marker. Start from the right side and knit as far as 30-30-34-34-40-40 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 60-60-68-68-80-80 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 54-54-61-61-72-72 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 48-48-54-54-64-64 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 42-42-48-48-56-56 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 36-36-42-42-48-48 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 30-30-35-35-40-40 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 24-24-28-28-32-32 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit to mid back. Cut the strand. The round now starts at the marker, i.e. the transition between right sleeve and back piece.

NECK:
Continue with light oak and work the next round with decreases as follows: Knit * 40-46-54-58-66-70 stitches and decrease 0-6-12-13-19-22 stitches evenly over these stitches – remember DECREASE TIP, knit together the next 18-20-20-24-24-24 stitches 2 and 2 (= 9-10-10-12-12-12 stitches decreased) *, work from *-* a total of 2 times = 98-100-104-114-118-120 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work the next round as follows: * Knit 2, purl 2, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), purl 2, knit 2, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), purl 1 *, work from *-* until there are 8-0-4-4-8-0 stitches left, work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) over the remaining stitches = 116-120-124-136-140-144 stitches. The yarn overs are worked twisted in rib (i.e. knit 2 / purl 2) on the next round to avoid holes. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl when the rib measures 3 cm.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch.

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 13:18:

Dear Erika, did you get and keep the correct tension in width and in height? We haven't get similar feedback yet. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Édith Gravel 17.02.2019 - 17:57:

Bonjour. Quel beau pull. Je tricote la taille M et je suis rendue à la flèche de la section À.3. C’est à dire que j’ai tricoté les 2 rangs 27 et 28 . Au rang suivant (29) on dit de rabattre les 4 premières mailles puis de tricoter les 125 prochaines mailles “ comme avant” . Que veut dire “comme avant”? J’ attends votre réponse avant de poursuivre. Merci de votre aide.

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 10:14:

Bonjour Mme Gravel, au rang après la flèche pour votre taille, vous tricotez le rang suivant de A.3 comme indiqué dans le diagramme, et, en même temps, vous rabattez les mailles des emmanchures. Bon tricot!

Charlotte 08.02.2019 - 07:11:

Hei! Jeg er godt i gang med genseren, som jeg tror blir veldig fin! Jeg er ferdig med bolen, og er i gang med armene. Jeg skjønner ikke helt hvordan jeg skal strikke mønsteret mot slutten av omgangen når jeg strikker mønsteret A2. For det er ikke nok masker å fullføre mønsteret etter hvert som jeg øker med 2 masker hver 1,5cm.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 12:06:

Hei Charlotte. Du øker på begge sider av merkretråden = på starten og slutten av omgangen. Neste omgang må den første og siste masken på omgangen strikkes som siste/første masken i en ny rapport av A.2. Altså på starten av omgangen strikkes den første masken på omgangen som den siste masken i A.2, neste gang du øker vil du strikke de 2 første maskene som de 2 siste i A.2. Altså det vokser ut en ny rapport på hver side av merketråden oppover ermet. God fornøyelse

Hemen başlıyorum umarım güzel olur \r\nModel güzel gözüküyor

Erika 04.02.2019 - 20:39:

De pattern doesnt seem right. I einded A4 a b and c. And maken more stiches every 2 cm. I only Made 4 more stiches. Can you expans this part of the pattern beter? IT doesnt work hoe its written now. Mvg erika

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 08:44:

Dear Erika, when pattern A.4a, b and c are worked once in height, continue working A.2 over all sts, then work A.3 over A.2 at the same time, work and continue increases mid under sleeve. When all sts have been increased for sleeve, work A.3 to the arrrow then bind off the 7 middle sts as explained. Happy knitting!

Erika 04.02.2019 - 19:08:

I am knitting the sleeves. Now I have to make more stiches. Do I have to mesure horizontal or verticaal 2 cm? I am knitting size s. I have to make 2 more stiches. Vertical mesuring looks not right. Can you help me?

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 08:26:

Dear Erika, when you have to increase 2 sts mid under sleeve, you will increase as explained under INCREASE TIP (sleeves), measuring sleeve in height, ie in size S you increase first stitch when piece measures 10 cm, then repeat the increases when sleeve measures 12 cm, 14 cm, 16 cm and so on. Happy knitting!

Erika 04.02.2019 - 11:29:

Why are you making a pattern If it doesn t work with de tools you discribe.

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 14:25:

Dear Erika, the sleeves are started with the double pointed needles, then you switch to the circular needle 40 cm when you have increased enough stitches to fit the small circular needle. Happy knitting!

Erika 04.02.2019 - 11:04:

De shortest round needle is way top long to knit the sleeves. I cant werk whit the needles whitout knot. I want to knit the sleeves whit round needle 40cm but iT is way to long. Can you help me.

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 14:14:

Dear Erika, you can then work the sleeves on double pointed needles or use the magic loop technique with a longer needle until you get anough sts for the 40 cm needle. Happy knitting!

Iwt 02.02.2019 - 21:41:

Jeg har strikket i str medium, men lurer på om det er en feil i masketallene for halsfellingen. Det virker som det telles fra der hals-forhøyningen slutter og ikke midt i raglangfellingen. Genseren er også svært stor i størrelse. Ellers flott genser!

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 11:14:

Hei Iwt. Det hadde du rett i, her var det en feil. Du skal felle 6 mnasker over de 46 maskene du strikker først slik at maskeantalelt blir 100 etter denne omgangen. Starten på omgangen er mellom høyre erme og bakstykket, så disse maskene strikkes over bakstykket. Når du strikker masker sammen 2 og 2 blir dette over ermene. Ja, denne modellen er vid, som du også kan se på målskissen nederst på oppskriften. God fornøyelse.

Andrea 29.01.2019 - 10:21:

Hallo Irs, vielleicht einTip für Dich: Ich habe die Ärmel nicht auf dem Nadelspiel sindern in hin und Rück reihen gestrickt.Bedeutet etwas weniger Faden wirrwarr und es wird deutlicher, dass das Muster an den Zunahmen nicht aufgehen kann, bedeutet aber auch etwas Obacht bei der Mustereinteilung, damit die Anordnung en passend sind. zu nähen ist dann lediglich die Umterarmnaht.... Vielleicht hilft es, LG
