SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth in sections which are sewn together to finish. You work top down with circular needle.

FRONT PIECE:
Left shoulder:
Cast on 25-27-29-29-31-33 stitches with circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work pattern as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, A.1 (= 2 stitches) until there are 2 stitches left on the row, work the first stitch in A.1, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth until the piece measures 4-4-4-4-5-5 cm / 1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 7/8"-1 7/8" – adjust so that the next row is worked from the wrong side:
ROW 1: Work pattern as before over all stitches and cast on 1 new stitch at the end of the row (= towards neck) = 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches.
ROW 2: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work pattern as before until there is 1 stitch left, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 3: Work pattern as before over all stitches.
Lay the piece to one side and work right shoulder.
Right shoulder:
Cast on 25-27-29-29-31-33 stitches with circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work pattern as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 until there are 2 stitches left on the row, work the first stitch in A.1, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth until the piece measures 4-4-4-4-5-5 cm / 1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 7/8"-1 7/8" – adjust so that the next row is from the right side:
ROW 1: Work pattern as before over all stitches and cast on 1 new stitch at the end of the row (= towards neck) = 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches.
ROW 2: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work pattern as before until there is 1 stitch left on the row, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Now work the right and left shoulders together from the right side as follows:
Work as before over the 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches on the right shoulder, cast on 21-21-21-25-25-25 new stitches on the needle for neck, work as before over the 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches on the left shoulder = 73-77-81-85-89-93 stitches on the row. Work back 1 row in this pattern from the wrong side and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side (purl the new neck stitches).
Now work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work pattern as before over the next 11-13-15-17-19-21 stitches, A.2 (= 49 stitches), work pattern as before over the next 11-13-15-17-19-21 stitches, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth. When the piece measures 13-14-13-14-15-15 cm / 5 1/8"-5 ½"-5 1/8"-5 ½"-5 7/8"-5 7/8" cast on new stitches for the armholes at the end of each row in each side as follows: Cast on 1 stitch 2-2-2-2-2-2 times, 2 stitches 0-0-2-2-3-4 times and 4-4-2-2-4-4 stitches 1 time (a total of 6-6-8-8-12-14 stitches increased for the armhole in each side of the piece) = 85-89-97-101-113-121 stitches. The new stitches are worked into pattern A.1 as you go. Continue like this back and forth until A.2 has been completed in height. When A.2 has been completed in height you have decreased 2 stitches in the diagram = 83-87-95-99-111-119 stitches. Now continue with pattern A.1 with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from the shoulder, bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

BACK PIECE:

ROW 4: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work pattern as before until there is 1 stitch left, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Now work the left and right shoulder together from the right side as follows: Work as before over the 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches on the left shoulder, cast on 21-21-21-25-25-25 new stitches on the needle for neck, work as before over the 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches on the right shoulder = 73-77-81-85-89-93 stitches on row.

Now work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 until there are 2 stitches left on the row, work the first stitch in A.1, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this. When the piece measures 13-14-13-14-15-15 cm / 5 1/8"-5 ½"-5 1/8"-5 ½"-5 7/8"-5 7/8" cast on new stitches for the armholes at the end of each row in each side as follows: Cast on 1 stitch 2-2-2-2-2-2 times, 2 stitches 0-0-2-2-3-4 times and 3-3-1-1-3-3 stitches 1 time (a total of 5-5-7-7-11-13 stitches increased for the armholes in each side of the piece – NOTE: You cast on 1 less stitch for the armholes on each side of the back piece than on the front piece so that the pattern will fit into the sides of the body = 83-87-95-99-111-119 stitches. The new stitches are worked into pattern A.1 as you go. When the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from the shoulder, bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

The new stitches are worked into pattern A.1. When all the stitches are cast on, insert a marker thread in the piece. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Continue back and forth with pattern A.1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When the piece measures 4 cm / 1½'' decrease 1 stitch in each side – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 5-5-4-4-3-3 cm / 1 7/8"-1 7/8"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 1/8"-1 1/8" a total of 7-8-8-9-10-10 times = 33-35-37-37-39-41 stitches. Continue until the sleeve measures 44-44-43-43-41-39 cm / 17 ¼"-17 ¼"-16 7/8"-16 7/8"-16 1/8"-15 ¼" from the marker thread (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders). Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On the next row purl the yarn overs to leave holes
= Knit 1 stitch, make 1 yarn over. On the next row purl the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= knit 2 together
= this square has no stitch because it was decreased earlier; go straight to next symbol in diagram

Jeg synes der står der er patent - men det er noget andet når man følger mønstret, ikke?

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 11:54:

Hei Anna-Maria. Denne oppskriften er strikket med struktur og hullmønster, som beskrevet i tittelen. Det strikkes ikke patent her. Jeg kan likevel se at den kommer opp når man søkt på patent, det skal vi få rettet. God fornøyelse

Samanta 29.01.2019 - 10:53:

Buongiorno, non so dove sbaglio : ma sul davanti se lavoro un numero dispari su A1 e poi devo iniziare A2, sul rovescio mi vengono due maglie diritto attaccate e le coste non vengono rispettate. Devo invertire A1? GRAZIE

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 11:13:

Buongiorno Samanta. Quando lavora A1 su un numero dispari, l'ultima maglia viene lavorata come la prima maglia di A1, quindi a diritto sul diritto del lavoro. Al ferro di ritorno, lavora questa maglia a rovescio e poi segue le coste come già impostate. Buon lavoro!

ELISA 04.01.2019 - 16:17:

Lorsque je fais mon échantillon : 10 cm egal 18 mailles avec des aiguilles n°7 (je tricote très serré). Je souhaite faire la taille S. Comment faire pour arriver au bon échantillon (10cm = 15 mailles)

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 08:11:

Bonjour Elisa, si vous tricotez serré, il vous faudra ajuster la taille des aiguilles: vous avez trop de mailles pour 10 cm, essayez à nouveau avec des aiguilles plus grosses. Bon tricot!

Celine 30.12.2018 - 09:04:

Après avoir recommencé 3 fois car les côtes ne tombaient pas au bon endroit en réunissant les deux épaules, j’ai fini par lire le schéma A1 en miroir. Cela donne ça au 3ème rang (envers) et tous les rangs envers: 1m. lisière, (1m. Envers, 1m.endroit) tout le rang au lieu de l’inverse, 1m lisière. Avec cette correction, les cotes et le motif A2 sont bien positionnés.

Aase Hermansen 28.11.2018 - 10:46:

Hej - kan jeg mon erstatte 1 tråd air med 2 tråde cotton merino ?? Mvh. Aase

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 14:05:

Hei Aase. Det som er viktig ved garnbytte er at strikkefastheten blir overholdt. Air tilhører garngruppe C, mens Cotton Merino tilhører garngruppe B. Cotton Merino har derfor en tettere strikkefasthet en Air, men dessverre ikke så tett at 2 tråder tilsvarer strikkefastheten til Air. Om du derimot velger et garn fra gruppe A vil dette være en mulighet. Alternativt kan du velge et annet garn fra gruppe C (og da strikke med 1 tråd). Her er en oversikt over hvilke garn som tilhører hvilke grupper. God fornøyelse

Willemijn 20.11.2018 - 15:08:

Het rugpand wordt 70 cm breed, is dat de bedoeling?

DROPS Design 21.11.2018 kl. 10:49:

Dag Willemijn,

Dat klopt dat de panden breed zijn, het is een oversized model.

Carla 19.11.2018 - 23:19:

Hello, betreffende maat medium - voorpand. Ik heb rechter en linker schouder samengebracht op 1 naald en sta op het punt om met patroon A2 te beginnen. Ik zou 1 ribbelsteek moeten breien, 13 steken in A1 patroon, 49 steken in A2 patroon, dan terug 13 steken in A1 patroon en 1 ribbelsteek. Als ik het telpatroon van A2 bekijk, dan start deze met 47 steken ipv 49 steken zoals in de beschrijving omdat er geminderd is, maar dit staat niet in het patroon waar je die 2 steken moet minderen ?Bedankt!

DROPS Design 25.11.2018 kl. 16:52:

Dag Carla

Als je de rechter en linker schouder samengevoegd hebt, heb je 77 steken op de naald en hoef je verder niet meer de minderen of te meerderen. In het telpatroon A.2 begin je met 49 steken en pas in een van de laatse naalden in het telpatroon minder je naar 47 steken. (Je leest het telpatroon van onder naar boven.) Als je verder breit volgens de beschrijving kom je dus precies uit met de steken.

Fanny 18.11.2018 - 09:26:

Bonjour, pour faire les épaules du dos, il est indiqué "tricoter sur l'endroit ainsi: rang 1..., rang 2... rang 3... etc". Faut-il faire des rangs envers entre chacun de ces rangs endroits ? Je ne pense pas avoir compris car si je fais cela, les augmentations se font toujours sur l'endroit et je me retrouve avec 2 épaules droites. Merci pour votre aide

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Fanny, suivez simplement l'ordre des rangs à tricoter (pas de rangs entre), soit pour l'épaule gauche: 1er rang sur l'envers (= on augmente pour l'encolure), 2ème rang sur l'endroit, 3ème rang sur l'envers. Pour l'épaule droite: 1er rang sur l'endroit (on augmente pour l'encolure), 2ème rang sur l'envers . Tricotez ensuite les 2 épaules sur l'endroit en montant les mailles de l'encolure entre les deux. Bon tricot!

Dominique 02.11.2018 - 17:47:

Je tricote la taille L. Le nombre de maille que j'obtiens après les augmentations des manches ne correspond pas: 25 mailles au départ puis 5 fois 2 et une fois 1 ne font pas 53 mais 47. Où est l'erreur ? Merci pour vos explications.

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:17:

Bonjour Dominique, effectivement, il faut monter à la fin 1 x 4 m - la correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

GASPARD 31.10.2018 - 13:55:

Bonjour, Je voudrais savoir quel est l'intérêt de tricoter avec une aiguille circulaire en aller-retour ... pourquoi ne pas prendre une aiguille droite : quelle est la différence ? je vous remercie par avance de votre réponse. Sylviane

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 15:14:

Bonjour Sylviane, le dos, le devant et les manches se tricotent effectivement en allers et retours sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles. Vous pouvez tricoter sur aiguilles droites, veillez à bien conserver la bonne tension car vos mailles seront plus serrées. Seul le col sera ici tricoté en rond. Bon tricot!
