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.


DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 32 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 2) = 16. In this example, decrease by working each 15th and 16th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 




The piece is worked in the round with circular needle up to the armholes, then the front and back pieces are finished separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.

Cast on 160-176-192-208-224-240 stitches with circular needle size 6 mm and 1 strand light beige and 1 strand grey (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round. Then work rib as follows: Purl 2, * knit 4, purl 4 *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, purl 2. Continue like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm work only over the first 80-88-96-104-112-120 stitches on the needle; the last 80-88-96-104-112-120 stitches are placed on a thread.

= 80-88-96-104-112-120 stitches. Continue with rib as before to finished length. When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm work short rows as follows: * Work the first 26-26-30-34-38-42 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and work back. Turn, tighten the strand and work the first 22-22-26-30-34-38 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and work back. Work 1 row over all 80-88-96-104-112-120 stitches *, repeat from *-* 1 more time. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm.

Place the 80-88-96-104-112-120 stitches from the thread on circular needle size 6 mm and work in the same way as the front piece.

Cast on 32-32-32-32-40-40 stitches with double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and 1 strand light beige and 1 strand grey (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 4 / purl 4) for 4 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 6 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 2-2-0-0-4-4 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP = 30-30-32-32-36-36 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid under sleeve. Then work stocking stitch. When the piece measures 7-6-8-7-7-7 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 4½-4-3-3-3-2½ cm a total of 9-10-11-12-11-13 times = 48-50-54-56-58-62 stitches. Cast off when the piece measures 45-44-42-42-39-38 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders) – make sure the cast-off edge is not tight. Work the other sleeve.

Sew the shoulder seams, leave approx. 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm for neck. Sew in the sleeves.

Ich möchte dieses-oder ein vergleichbares Modell- gern mit einem Faden Drops Sky stricken und freue mich über einen Tipp

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 11:08:

Liebe Annegret, dieses Modell wird nur mit 2 Fäden Sky gestrickt, dh nicht nur 1 Faden. Am besten blättern Sie in unseren Anleitungen für Pullover Garngruppe B um die richtige Maschenprobe zu haben wenn Sie nicht mit 2 Fäden stricken möchten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sue 27.12.2018 - 09:26:

Ich habe sehr lange Arme und benötige 5 cm mehr Armlänge. Wo füge ich diese am besten ein?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 12:18:

Liebe Sue, vielleicht können Sie die Zunahmen etwas später anfangen? oder dann diese 5 cm regelmäßig zwischen die Zunahmen verteilen? Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Patricia Olivia Fuchs 21.12.2018 - 16:12:

Bei Größe S werden 160 Maschen angeschlagen. Das ergibt bei mir mit Maschenprobe 14 in der Breite aber 57 cm für vorne und hinten, nicht 50. Bitte um Erklärung, danke.

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 08:29:

Liebe Frau Fuchs, die Maschenprobe wird glatt rechts gestrickt = 14 M x 16 R glatt rechts = 10 x 10 cm. Wenn diese Maschenprobe stimmt, dann sollten Sie die richtigen Massen in der jeweiligen Grösse bekommen, auch wenn Sie dann Bündchen/Rippenmuster stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Maillard 20.11.2018 - 23:29:

Bonsoir ,j.aimerai savoir si je peux tricoter ce modèle avec la laine Brushed alpaca silk et avec combien de pelotes et qu.elle n d.aiguille merci d.avance

DROPS Design 21.11.2018 kl. 08:34:

Bonjour Mme Maillard, ce pull se tricote avec 2 fils DROPS Sky qui appartient au groupe B, DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk appartient au groupe C et n'apparaît pas comme une alternative. Vous trouverez ici quelques informations sur les alternatives - n'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone -pour une assistance personnalisée. Bon tricot!

Mary 15.11.2018 - 21:27:

Hallo, Kann ich denn statt im Rippenmuster auch in einem anderen Muster Stricken? Wenn ja, welche Alternativen würden Sie vorschlagen? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Mary, dieses Modell wird im Rippenmuster gestrickt und geschrieben, dh alle Angaben sind so kalkuliert, am besten genauso stricken, wie in der Anleitung beschrieben ist. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dorthe Hald-sørensen 18.10.2018 - 14:28:

Hvornår kan man købe andre farver i dette garn

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 16:19:

Hej Dorthe, til at begynde med kan du købe det i disse 14 flotte farver. Vi har ikke besluttet om flere farver endnu. Men gå gerne ind på farvekortet og skriv en kommentar om hvilken farve du ville ønske dig :)

Mc 28.07.2018 - 11:20:

Bonjour, J'aimerais réaliser ce modèle en "LIMA", cependant quand je calcule mon mètrage de fil, je trouve des quantités astronomiques. Dans les explications que vous donnez il faut 10 pelotes, soit 1900 mètres, il me faudrait donc en "lima" 19 pelotes, pour une taille L ? Merci

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Mc, la quantité sera automatiquement différente si vous utilisez Lima, car Sky fait environ 190 m pour 50 g alors que Lima fait 100 m environ pour 50 g. Rappelez-vous que des fils de composition différentes donneront des résultats différents, vous trouverez ici plus d'infos sur les alternatives. Bon tricot!

Sara M 26.07.2018 - 02:20:

I cannot wear real wool and would like an alternative to knit this in that doesn’t contain wool. Do you have any suggested alternatives? I tried the yarn converter and it didn’t offer any suggestions. Thank you

DROPS Design 26.07.2018 kl. 10:08:

Dear Sara M, you can use any other yarn group B - remember that different yarns with different textures will give different result - read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Glorija 20.06.2018 - 12:36:

Prosty i piękny

Wendy H 13.06.2018 - 13:47:

Have trialled this yarn and found it beautiful light and warm and think this design would be very comfortable to wear.
