EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PIECE:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.

ELEVATION (for back of neck):
The elevation is worked in garter stitch. Insert 1 marker at the start of the round (= approx. mid back). Start from the right side and knit as far as 7-8-8-9-9-10 stitches past the marker thread, turn, tighten the strand and knit 14-16-16-18-18-20 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 21-24-24-27-27-30 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 28-32-32-36-36-40 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 35-40-40-45-45-50 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit 42-48-48-54-54-60 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 49-56-56-63-63-70 stitches back, turn, tighten the strand and knit to marker thread. 
INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide these stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 22) = 4.18. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch. On the next round, work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
All increases are made from the right side.
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches) 1 yarn over.
On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP-1 (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 (marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, top down with circular needle as far as the armholes, then the body and sleeves are finished separately. The body is continued in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-108-112-118 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Sky. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above.
Knit 1 round and increase 22-24-26-24-26-26 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 114-120-126-132-138-144 stitches. Purl 1 round.
Change to circular needle size 4 mm.
For a better fit, 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 will then be the same front and back – read ELEVATION.
Work A.1 (= 6 stitches) over all stitches (= a total of 19-20-21-22-23-24 times in width).
On each round with a star (= increase round) work as follows:
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
INCREASE 1: Increase 24-24-24-24-30-30 stitches evenly on round = 138-144-150-156-168-174 stitches. A.1 is then repeated 23-24-25-26-28-29 times in width.
INCREASE 2: Increase 18-18-24-24-24-30 stitches evenly on round = 156-162-174-180-192-204 stitches. A.1 is then repeated 26-27-29-30-32-34 times in width.
INCREASE 3: Increase 12-18-18-24-24-24 stitches evenly on round = 168-180-192-204-216-228 stitches. A.1 is then repeated 28-30-32-34-36-38 times in width.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height the piece measures approx. 8 cm from the cast-on edge.
Work A.2 (= 12 stitches) over all stitches (= 14-15-16-17-18-19 times in width).
When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height there are 294-330-352-391-414-437 stitches on the needle.
The piece measures approx. 21-22-22-24-24-24 cm. Continue in the round with stocking stitch until the piece measures 21-23-24-26-28-29 cm from the cast-on edge. Now divide the piece for body and sleeves as follows:
Work stocking stitch over the first 42-47-49-57-62-66 stitches, place the next 64-72-78-82-84-88 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve, work stocking stitch over the next 83-93-98-114-123-130 stitches, place the next 64-72-78-82-84-88 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve, work 41-46-49-56-61-65 stitches stocking stitch = 182-202-216-247-270-285 stitches.

BODY:
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under each sleeve.
Work stocking stitch. When the piece measures 2 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2.
Increase like this every 2-2-2-3-3-2 cm a total of 11-11-11-9-9-12 times = 226-246-260-283-306-333 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch until the piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-32 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work garter stitch until the piece measures 32-32-33-33-33-34 cm from where the body was divided from the sleeves. Cast off with knit. The piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 64-72-78-82-84-88 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 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve = 72-80-88-92-96-100 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve. Work stocking stitch in the round.
When the piece measures 3 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread - read DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease like this every 2½-2-1½-1½-1½-1½ cm a total of 13-16-19-19-20-21 times = 46-48-50-54-56-58 stitches. When the piece measures 42-41-40-39-37-36 cm from where the sleeve was divided from the body, change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work 3 RIDGES in the round - see description above. Then cast off with knit. The sleeve measures a total of 65-66-66-67-67-67 cm from the cast-on edge. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Pinuccia 30.03.2019 - 10:56:

Vorrei realizzare questa maglia ma vorrei farla tutta traforata.Il numero delle maglie a maglia rasata è compatibile al proseguimento del punto traforato?Grazie!

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 09:02:

Buongiorno Pinuccia. La maglia ha una forma ad A, quindi si continua ad aumentare per il davanti/dietro anche nella parte lavorata a maglia rasata. Per continuare con il motivo traforato, dovrebbe lavorare senza fare questi aumenti ai lati. Per un'assistenza più personalizzata, può rivolgersi anche via mail al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Morgane_tralala 11.03.2019 - 12:23:

Bonjour l'équipe de Drop Design ! J'en suis à diviser mon ouvrage pour le dos, le devant et les manches. Je ne comprends pas ce que vous voulez dire par "tricoter au dessus des mailles" et "monter des mailles sous la manche". Merci pour votre aide !

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 14:46:

Bonjour Morgane_tralala, cette vidéo montre (à partir du time code 6:54 environ) comment séparer les manches et comment monter les mailles dessous les manches, le pull tricoté dans la vidéo est un raglan, mais la technique sera la même ici. Bon tricot!

Viktoriya 23.02.2019 - 10:21:

Ho fatto!!!😀 Mi preoccupavo molto all" inizio del lavoro invece e un calcolo precisso. Grazie.

Andrea 17.02.2019 - 00:30:

Vorrei chiarito come dividere i punti per lavorare le maniche, il davanti e il dietro

DROPS Design 17.02.2019 kl. 09:36:

Buongiorno Andrea, a seconda della taglia che sta lavorando, deve lavorare a maglia rasata le prime 42-47-50-57-62-66 maglie, spostare su un fermamaglie le 64-72-78-82-84-88 maglie successive per la manica senza lavorarle, avviare 8-8-10-10-12-12 maglie a nuovo sul ferro, per la parte sotto la manica, lavorare a maglia rasata le 83-93-98-114-123-130 maglie successive, spostare su un fermamaglie le 64-72-78-82-84-88 maglie successive per la manica, avviare 8-8-10-10-12-12 maglie, lavorare le 41-46-49-56-61-65 maglie successive a maglia rasata. Buon lavoro!

Susanne 05.02.2019 - 22:14:

Har et spørgsmål til diagram 2a str l Mangler der ikke noget i diagram forklaring ? Der er 3 firkanter uden “mønster” i, den ene udgør retmasker, men de 2 andre starter med = og forklaring ....

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 14:38:

Hei Susanne. Det er bare den øverste firkanten (= rettmaske) som er tom, de andre firkantene har mønster i. Har du problemer med å se dem uansett hvaslags enhet du bruker (mobil, PC, nettbrett) ?

Morgane_tralala 24.01.2019 - 00:02:

Bonjour. Je voulais savoir dans quel sens se tricotait les motifs A1 et A2 ? Est ce qu'on les tricote du haut vers le bas ou inversement ? Merci

DROPS Design 24.01.2019 kl. 10:02:

Bonjour Morgane_tralala, le pull se tricote de haut en bas, mais les diagrammes se lisent de bas en haut, tricotez tous les rangs des diagrammes de droite à gauche en commençant par le coin en bas à droite. Bon tricot!

Antonella 14.01.2019 - 12:01:

Buongiorno. Ho fatto il diagramma A2 e alla fine, facendo 17 ripetizioni per la mia taglia (XL), mi mancano esattamente 17 maglie nel conto totale, 374. Ogni ripetizione è di 22 come da diagramma ma alla fine nel conteggio, pare mancare un aumento. Può esserci un errore o sbaglio qualcosa?

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 13:15:

Buongiorno Antonella. I diagrammi sono corretti. Per la sua taglia (XL) alla fine del diagramma A2, ogni ripetizione è formata da 23 maglie (quindi 11 m aumentate in ogni ripetizione). Verifichi di aver seguito il diagramma A2 con sotto l'indicazione della sua taglia. Buon lavoro!

Maminko 18.11.2018 - 21:46:

Ce pull est très joli, mais, si les tricots commencés par le haut ont une très belle encolure, celle-ci présente l'inconvénient d'être trop décolletée pour bien protéger le cou du froid. C'est ce qui me fait hésiter à réaliser un tel modèle.

Giegl 07.11.2018 - 07:40:

Hallo, in der Erläuterung zum Diagramm wird bei dem Umschlag (schwarz gefüllt) gesagt, dass man ihn verschränkt abstricken soll, damit er ein Loch bildet. Soll dieser nicht gerade kein Loch bilden? VG

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 08:40:

Liebe Frau Giegl, ja genau hier will man ein Loch vermeiden - es wird korrigiert, danke für den Hinweis. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
