Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 104 stitches) and and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 24) = 4.3. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

ELEVATION (back of neck):
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round.
Start from the right side with light oak and knit 16-17-18-19-20-21 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten strand and purl 32-34-36-38-40-42 stitches. Turn, tighten strand and knit 48-51-54-57-60-63 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 64-68-72-76-80-84 stitches. Turn, tighten strand and knit 80-85-90-95-100-105 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 96-102-108-114-120-126 stitches. Turn, tighten strand and knit to mid back. Then work YOKE as described in text.
 
PATTERN:
Jumper: See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size.
Hat: See diagrams A.5 and A.6.
The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back are not tight. Use a larger needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.
It is also important to maintain the knitting tension in height, or the yoke will be too short and the armholes too small!

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

DECREASE TIP-2 (for top of hat):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread and knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck, yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 104-108-112-116-124-128 stitches with short circular needle size 3.5 mm and sea green. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2). When you have worked 1 round with sea green change to light oak. Continue the rib until the neck measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm. Knit 1 round where you increase 24-26-28-28-28-32 stitches evenly on round - read INCREASE TIP = 128-134-140-144-152-160 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm.
You can now work an elevation in the back of the neck so that the back of the yoke is slightly higher. You can leave out this elevation; the neck will then be the same front and back – work ELEVATION – read description above or go straight to YOKE.

YOKE:
Work 2 rounds stocking stitch with light oak. Then work A.1 in the round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on each round with an arrow in A.1, increase evenly on round as described below - remember INCREASE TIP.
On round marked with arrow-1 increase 32-34-36-40-40-40 stitches evenly on round = 160-168-176-184-192-200 stitches (there is room for 20-21-22-23-24-25 repeats of 8 stitches).
On round marked with arrow-2 increase 32-36-40-44-48-52 stitches evenly on round = 192-204-216-228-240-252 stitches (there is room for 32-34-36-38-40-42 repeats of 6 stitches).
On round marked with arrow-3 increase 24-30-36-36-42-42 stitches evenly on round = 216-234-252-264-282-294 stitches (there is room for 36-39-42-44-47-49 repeats of 6 stitches).
On round marked with arrow-4 increase 20-26-28-28-30-34 stitches evenly on round = 236-260-280-292-312-328 stitches (there is room for 59-65-70-73-78-82 repeats of 4 stitches).
On round marked with arrow-5 increase 16-20-20-24-24-28 stitches evenly on round = 252-280-300-316-336-356 stitches (there is room for 63-70-75-79-84-89 repeats of 4 stitches).
On round marked with arrow-6 increase 16-16-16-20-24-28 stitches evenly on round = 268-296-316-336-360-384 stitches (there is room for 67-74-79-28-30-32 repeats of 4-4-4-12-12-12 stitches).
When the last row of A.1 is left, the piece measures 23-23-25-27-27-30 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
The last round is worked as follows: Knit 41-44-46-49-54-59 stitches (= ½ back piece), place the next 52-60-66-70-72-74 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side mid under sleeve), knit 82-88-92-98-108-118 stitches (= front piece), place the next 52-60-66-70-72-74 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 41-44-46-49-54-59 stitches (= back piece). Cut the strand.
Body and sleeves are now finished separately.

BODY:
= 180-192-204-216-240-264 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the one sleeve and start the round at this marker thread. The first round is worked as follows:
SIZES XS/S - S/M - L/XL - XL/XXL: Work A.2 in the round (= 15-16-18-20 repeats of 12 stitches). When A.2 has been completed, work A.3 in the round (= 15-16-18-20 repeats of 12 stitches). Continue A.3 as described under ALL SIZES.
SIZES M/L - XXL/XXXL: Work A.3 in the round (= 17-22 repeats of 12 stitches). Continue A.3 as described under ALL SIZES!
ALL SIZES:
Continue A.3 as described above. AT THE SAME TIME on the round marked with arrow-7 increase 12-16-12-16-16-16 evenly on round = 192-208-216-232-256-280 stitches (there is now room for 24-26-27-29-32-35 repeats of 8 stitches). On the round marked with arrow-8 increase 12-8-12-8-8-8 stitches evenly on round = 204-216-228-240-264-288 stitches (there is now room for 34-36-38-40-44-48 repeats of 6 stitches). On the round marked with arrow-9 increase 12-0-12-0-0-0 stitches evenly on round in all sizes = 216-216-240-240-264-288 stitches (there is now room for 54-54-60-60-66-72 repeats of 4 stitches). When A.3 has been completed, work A.4 in the round in all sizes (= 9-9-10-10-11-12 repeats of 24 stitches). When A.4 has been completed, the piece measures approx. 59-59-61-63-63-66 cm from the shoulder down (approx. 33 cm from the division in all sizes). XS/S is now finished, ready for the rib. In the other sizes, repeat A.4 until the piece measures approx. 35-35-35-37-36 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). NOTE: Finish after a whole stripe or pattern – if you do not want pattern all the way down to the rib, you can continue with stocking stitch and light oak when you have completed A.4 for the first time.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Knit 1 round with light oak where you increase 56-56-60-60-64-72 stitches evenly on round = 272-272-300-300-328-360 stitches. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight (if the cast-off edge is tight you can make 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch at the same time as you cast off - yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). The jumper measures approx. 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 52-60-66-70-72-74 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 4.5 mm and in addition knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 60-68-76-80-84-88 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve, i.e. insert the marker thread in the first stitch after the middle, count 29-33-37-39-41-43 stitches, insert 1 marker thread in the next stitch (= mid-stitch). There are now 29-33-37-39-41-43 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards. The marker thread under the sleeve will be used a little later when decreasing and the marker thread on top of sleeve will be used to count where the pattern starts.
READ THE REST OF SLEEVE BEFORE CONTINUING!
Work the last row of A.1 so that A.1 finishes in the same way as the body.
PATTERN:
SIZES XS/S, S/M, L/XL and XL/XXL: Work A.2 in the round (= 9-9-11-12 repeats of 8 stitches), but make sure that A.2 in L/XL and XL/XXL fits neatly over A.1 on the yoke (you will not get a complete repeat of the pattern under the sleeve).
When A.2 has been completed, work A.3, but count out from the mid-stitch where the pattern should start - mid-stitch in A.3 should match the stitch with the marker thread mid top of sleeve (in L/XL and XL/XXL the first 3 rounds in A.3 need to be adjusted so that they fit neatly over A.1/A.2). Continue as described under ALL SIZES!
SIZES M/L and XXL/XXXL: When the last row in A.1 has been completed, work A.3, but count out from the mid-stitch where the pattern should start - mid-stitch in A.3 should match the stitch with the marker thread mid top of sleeve (in XXL/XXXL XXL the first 3 rounds in A.3 need to be adjusted so that they fit neatly over A.1/A.2). Continue as described under ALL SIZES!
ALL SIZES:
When A.3 has been completed, work A.4, then continue with stocking stitch and light oak.
DECREASE:
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 2 cm from the division decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease like this every 1 cm a total of 3-5-6-6-6-7 times and then every 5-3½-3-2½-2-2 cm a total of 6-8-9-10-11-11 times = 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches.
When the sleeve measures approx. 36-36-35-33-33-31 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke) knit 1 round with light oak where you increase 10-8-10-8-10-8 stitches evenly on round in all sizes = 52-52-56-56-60-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 6 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight (if the cast-off edge is tight you can make 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch at the same time as you cast off - yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). The sleeve measures approx. 42-42-41-39-39-37 cm from the division and down. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

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

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with short circular needle, bottom up. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.

HAT:
Cast on 108-108-116 stitches with short circular needle size 3 mm and sea green. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2). When you have worked 1 round of rib, change to light oak. Continue the rib until the piece measures 4 cm from the cast-on edge. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 4 stitches evenly on round = 104-104-112 stitches.
Then work A.5 in the round (= 13-13-14 repeats of 8 stitches). Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.5 has been completed, work A.6 in the round. A.6 is repeated to finished length. When the piece measures 21-22-23 cm insert 8 marker threads in the piece as follows: The first marker thread is inserted at the beginning of the round. The next 7 marker threads are inserted with 13-13-14 stitches between each one.
On the next round, decrease 1 stitch before each of the 8 marker threads – read DECREASE TIP = 8 stitches decrease. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 6-6-5 times and then every round a total of 2-2-4 times = 40 stitches left for all sizes. Knit 2 rounds where all the stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 on both rounds = 10 stitches left for all sizes. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 26-27-28 cm from the top down.

Ilse 17.09.2019 - 17:36:

Wie passe ich die Muster am Arm an. Im moment hänge ich da ein bisschen.🤔

DROPS Design 18.09.2019 kl. 07:37:

Liebe Ilse, bei den Ärmel strickt man A.2, bei den Grössen L/XL und XL/XXL muss A.2 schön über A.1 gelegt - so können Sie rechnen wie A.2 angefangen soll. A.3 muss auch (je nach der Größe) schön über A.2/ zentriert werden . Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ulrika 29.05.2019 - 08:38:

Det står att arbetet ska mäta ca 23 cm från uppläggningskanten mitt fram i stl M när ett varv återstår på A1. Men A1 innehåller 57 varv, vilket borde bli ca 22-23cm vid korrekt stickfasthet. Med resår och start inräknat borde det bli ca 27 cm i stl M. Kan det stå fel, att ni menar 23 cm från start av A1?

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 09:57:

Hei Ulrika. Om du ser på diagram A.1 strikkes størrelse S-M kun opp til 50 rad i diagrammet (de klammene på siden indikerer de ulike størrelsene). Da måler A.1 ca 20 cm, og arbeidet måler 23 cm fra oppleggskanten - inkludert vrangborden. God fornøyelse

Linda Rigby 22.04.2019 - 10:16:

I am 41 inches bust measurement.What size would I need to do this sweater.Thankyou.

DROPS Design 22.04.2019 kl. 12:11:

Dear Linda, your measurements would correspond to size XL. You can see the diagram with the measurements in cm. Don't forget to keep the knitting tension in order to make use of all the calculations in the pattern. Happy knitting!

Marte Kruse 14.04.2019 - 19:27:

Jeg skal snart i gang med "bol". Oppskriften sier i min størrelse (L/XL) 216 masker. Skal disse 216 maskene legges opp eller taes fra "bærestykke"? Jeg forstår altså ikke overgangen mellom bærestykke og bol. Kan du hjelpe meg? Takk, mvh Marte

DROPS Design 15.04.2019 kl. 08:07:

Hei Marte, De 216 maskene er fra bærestykket uten ermene og pluss maskene lagt opp under ermene. Ermene er på egne tråder og taes ikke med. Du fortsetter ved å strikke A.2 rundt på bolen. Håper dette hjelper og god fornøyelse!

Hanne Borges 24.02.2019 - 09:34:

Jeg vil gerne strikke modellen, men starte nedefra, er der en opskrift på det?

Vibeke Ea 21.02.2019 - 14:47:

Jeg vil gerne strikke trøjen i str L men skal man ikke strikke mønster A2 i den str. Det ser ud som om man ikke skal?

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 11:51:

Hej Vibeke, nej det stemmer i L og XXL/XXXL strikker du A.3 ifølge opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Susanne 17.01.2019 - 18:43:

Ich möchte den Pullover in L stricken. Welcher Rapport von A1 stimmt denn für L? Es gibt M/L und L/XL ?

DROPS Design 18.01.2019 kl. 08:41:

Liebe Susanne, wir werden die Grössen für die Diagramme korrigieren, für die Grösse L stricken Sie Diagramme M/L (= 3. Grösse). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ulrike Auer 09.01.2019 - 21:05:

Ich möchte den Pullover gerne ohne die Zunahmen im Rumpfteil stricken, ist das möglich? Habe die Passe schon fertig, tolle Farben und Muster.

DROPS Design 10.01.2019 kl. 09:25:

Liebe Frau Auer, wahrscheinlich, A.3 wird über 12 M gestrickt und A.4 über 24 M, beachten Sie, daß Sie genügend Maschen für die beide Muster haben. Ganz am Ende - vor dem Bündchen- sollen Sie dann die Maschenanzahl anders anpassen, da Sie nicht die selben Anzahl haben werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ghazal 06.01.2019 - 14:46:

Hey, I live in Denmark. I want to know can I buy these jumpers ready?? :) I don't know how to knit but I love these designs. So it would be great if I can buy them prepared or find someone to order to knot one for me...???!!!

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 11:18:

Dear Mrs Ghazal, we only provide the patterns, you can try to contact one of our DROPS store - even per mail or telephone - they may help you further.

Inger 23.11.2018 - 11:45:

När det gäller garnåtgången till tröjan finns storlekarna S - M - L - XL - XXL - XXXL. I beskrivningen finns plötsligt storleken XS med också. Jag vill sticka tröjan i storlek M, ska jag då lägga upp 108 eller 112 maskor? Dvs. var i beskrivningen ska jag titta för att hitta storlek M, är det andra eller tredje uppgiften?

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 17:36:

Hejsan, jag hittar endast 6 storlekar i beskrivningen. Du ska alltså lägga upp 108 maskor.
