EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size. The diagrams are worked in stocking stitch.
As there are long spaces between colour changes, you should twist the strands together approx. every 7th stitch to avoid having long, loose strands at the back.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the row (e.g. 90 stitches) and divide these stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 31) = 2.9. In this example, make 1 yarn over after approx. each 3rd stitch. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.


DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left 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).

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The yoke is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves and the body is continued in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-104-112-120 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and light grey blue.
Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2).
Work rib for 3 cm. Change to circular needle size 4 mm.
Knit 1 round and increase 28-24-32-30-32-34 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP = 120-120-132-134-144-154 stitches.
Then work pattern as follows (the round starts mid back):
Work A.1 (= 6-6-6-5-5-5 stitches) over the first 12-12-12-10-10-10 stitches (= a total of 2 times), A.2 (= 12 stitches), A.1 over the next 42-42-48-50-55-60 stitches (= a total of 7-7-8-10-11-12 times), A.2 over the next 12 stitches, A.1 over the last 42-42-48-50-55-60 stitches (= a total of 7-7-8-10-11-12 times).
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time in height there are 244-244-270-322-348-374 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 16 cm (including the rib).
Knit 1 round with light grey and increase 11-11-15-8-12-1 stitches evenly on round = 255-255-285-330-360-375 stitches.
Work A.3 (= 15 stitches) over all stitches (= a total of 17-17-19-22-24-25 times in width).
When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height there are 306-340-361-396-432-450 stitches on the needle.
The piece is now worked with light grey to finished length.
Work stocking stitch until the piece measures 21-23-25-26-28-30 cm (including the rib).
Then divide the piece for body and sleeves as follows:
Work 44-48-50-56-62-67 stitches stocking stitch (= half back piece), place the next 64-72-79-84-90-90 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-10-14 new stitches under the sleeve, work 89-99-102-115-127-135 stitches stocking stitch (= front piece), place the next 64-72-79-84-90-90 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-10-14 new stitches under the sleeve, finally work 45-49-51-57-63-68 stitches stocking stitch (= half back piece) = 194-212-223-248-272-298 stitches.

BODY:
Continue working in stocking stitch. When the piece measures 26-26-26-27-27-27 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves, increase 26-32-33-32-40-42 stitches evenly on next round = 220-244-256-280-312-340 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) over all stitches (the yarn overs are worked twisted to avoid holes). Cast off with knit when the rib measures 4 cm (i.e. the piece measures a total of approx. 30-30-30-31-31-31 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves). The jacket measures a total of 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, measured from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Place the 64-72-79-84-90-90 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-10-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 72-80-89-94-100-104 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-10-14 stitches (= mid under sleeve). Work stocking stitch in the round with light grey. When the piece measures 1 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3-2-1½-1½-1½-1 cm a total of 11-15-18-19-22-23 times = 50-50-53-56-56-58 stitches. When the sleeve measures 40-38-37-36-35-33 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body, increase 2-2-3-0-4-2 evenly on round = 52-52-56-56-60-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2). Cast off with knit when the piece measures 44-42-41-40-39-37 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body (approx. 4 cm rib). Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Ich möchte den Pullover gern aus DROPS Sky stricken. Die Maschenprobe passt. Kann ich die Anleitung verwenden?

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 09:19:

Liebe Kerstin, DROPS Merino Extra Fine und DROPS Sky gehören beide zur selben Garngruppe B, so können Sie Sky stricken. Benutzen Sie unseren Garnumrechner um die neue Garnmenge zu kalkulieren. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hvorfor oppgis at man skal strikke ovenfra og ned på en genser med rundfelling? Det er motstridende og gjør det vanskelig å søke opp plagg som skal strikkes nedenfra og ha en reell FELLING. Må åpne mange mønster før man treffer.

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 12:59:

Hei Gunn. Rundfelling er beskrivelsen av hvordan bærestykket er strikket. Selvom det stemmer at det økes når man strikker ovenfra og ned, så blir bærestykket helt likt som om man hadde strikket nedenfra og opp (og da felt). Grunnen til at det strikkes ovenfra og ned er at det gir strikkeren mer fleksibilitet, feks til å tilpasse lengden på bærestykket. Det er også lettere å prøve plagget på underveis. Vi pleier å opplyse om strikkeretning i tittelen der det strikkes ovenfra og ned. Det er ikke noe i veien for at du selv tilpasser oppskriften så du kan strikke den nedenfra og opp om du ønsker det. God fornøyelse

Quand on commence le diagramme a1 je ne comprends pas ce que veut dire au dessus des 12 premières mailles. Quelles sont les 12 premières mailles et au dessus de quoi . Merci

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 15:59:

Bonjour Mme Rousseau, quand on commence le jacquard, on commence par tricoter 2 fois A.1 en largeur (= A.1 = 6 m, soit sur les 12 m suivantes), puis on tricote A.2 (= 12 m) , puis on répète 7 fois A.1 (= 7 motifs de 6 m = 42 m), puis 1 fois A.2 et on termine le tour par 7 fois A.1 (= 7 motifs de 6 mailles). Bon tricot!

Barbara 10.12.2018 - 17:32:

Hallo, ich kann von dem Modell Sheep Happens nur die Seite 1 ausdrucken, könnten Sie das bitte einmal überprüfen oder woran liegt das, möchte den Pullover noch bis Weihnachten stricken. Grüße, Barbara

DROPS Design 11.12.2018 kl. 08:18:

Liebe Barbara, wir konnten diese Anleitung mit Erfolg drucken - leeren sie den Cache Ihres Browsers und versuchen Sie noch einmal - die Druckeinstellungen auch mal prüfen, damit alle Seiten gedruckt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jean Voges 03.12.2018 - 15:30:

Under Sleeve instructions it says "When the sleeve measures 40-38-37-36-35-33 cm" and then after working the rib, it says "bind off with knit when piece measures 44-42-41-40-39-37 cm." My question is, are these measurements backwards? It would seem the measurements should be more for the larger sizes.

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 16:21:

Dear Mrs Voges, the measurements are fine (see also measurement chart), but due to larger yoke, the sleeve will be shorter in the larger sizes. Compare your own measurement to the ones in the chart with a similar jumper you have and like the shape and adjust length if necessary. Happy knitting!

Helle Iversen 13.11.2018 - 21:23:

Hej - er det korrekt, at der på Bærestykket er flere masker på bagstykket end på forstykket ? Omgangen starter midt bag. A1 strik 12masker - A2 strik 12masker - A1 strik 48masker - A2 strik 12 masker - A1 strik 48 masker. Omg. slut Altså er der 48masker på den ene A1 og 48+12masker på den anden A1 (bagstykket). Hvis det er korrekt, strikker jeg bare videre :-) Vh Helle

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 12:02:

Hei Helle. Du deler ikke til forstykke/bakstykke og ermer før du setter masker til ermer på en tråd, videre strikkes bolen nedover. Det stemmer at du strikker A.1 over de første 12 maskene, så A.2, videre A.1 over 48 masker og så A.2 igjen, før A.1 over de siste 48 maskene. A.2 er mønsteret med sauen som står sidelengs, og denne skal være bak på høyre skulder og foran på venstre side. Når du senere setter masker på en tråd til ermer vil du se at masketallet er delt inn slik at det passer med at omgangen begynner midt bak. God fornøyelse.

M Matthews 26.10.2018 - 13:33:

Is it possible to adapt this pattern for children ages 8, 10?

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 10:10:

Dear Mrs Matthews, a child version will be available soon - stay tuned!

Alice 19.10.2018 - 18:41:

Hvilken str. har modellen på bildet?

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 09:41:

Hej Alice modellen på billedet er ca størrelse M. Men du finder målene på blusen i måleskitsen nederst i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Gabriella Merico 01.10.2018 - 17:38:

Ich möchte sehr gerne die Schäfchen-MÜTZE (Original Donna Smith) mit der Wolle "DROPS Lima" stricken, finde dazu bei Ihnen aber leider keine Anleitung (Jacke, Pulli, Handschuhe und Socken gefunden). Laut Auskunft einer Bekannten soll es diese Anleitung gegeben haben. Können Sie mir weiterhelfen?

DROPS Design 02.10.2018 kl. 08:57:

Liebe Frau Merico, hier finden Sie alle unsere Mütze mit Garngruppe B gestrickt, damit können Sie sich inspirieren, um eine Mütze mit Schäfchen stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mamie Éliane 25.09.2018 - 21:13:

Je suis en train de tricoter le pull Sheep Happens en taille L et j'ai remarqué une erreur pour l'empiècement on monte 96 mailles puis on augmente de 34 mailles et vous totalisez 120 mailles au lieu de 130. Je voudrais être sûre que c'est juste une faute de frappe et que cela ne va pas fausser le reste du tricot. Merci.

DROPS Design 26.09.2018 kl. 07:54:

Bonjour Mamie Eliane, il y avait bien une faute de frappe en taille M, on monte 96 m et on augmente 24 m = 120 m. Merci pour votre retour. Bon tricot!
