EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

DECREASE TIP-1 (for sides of front/back piece):
All decreases are made from the right side!
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, knit 1, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased), knit until there are 4 stitches left, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 1 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for neck on front piece):
Decrease 1 stitch after the 1 stitch as follows: slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease 1 stitch before the 1 stitch as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased) and finish with knit 1.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 44 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 11) = 4. 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.

FISHERMAN’S RIB:
ROW 1: 1 stitch in garter stitch, * knit 1, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, finish with knit 1 and 1 stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 2: 1 stitch in garter stitch, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit together the yarn over and the slipped stitch *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, finish with 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl and 1 stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 3: 1 stitch in garter stitch, * knit the yarn over and slipped stitch together, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), knit the yarn over and slipped stitch together, 1 stitch in garter stitch.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 upwards.

Bonjour, je vais réaliser ce modèle pour ma fille en taille M. Elle souhaite que je fasse les manches en jersey plutôt qu'en côtes anglaises et sans les diminutions de la fin pour les garder bien larges. Je dois prévoir la même quantité de laine, ou bien plus , ou moins ? merci d'avance pour votre réponse. Je tricote régulièrement vos modèles, qui sont magnifiques. Bonne année !

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 09:55:

Bonjour Catherine, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chaque modèle à chaque demande individuelle. Votre magasin saura en revanche vous conseiller même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Alessia Loquenzi 27.10.2018 - 17:37:

Buongiorno, sto facendo il campione con una lana diversa ( usando il convertitore) e ho fatto il campione usando i ferri 7 anche se l'indicazione del gomitolo dice di usare il n. 5. È corretto? il campione mi viene 16 maglie X 17 ferri , devo aumentare il n. di ferri? Grazie mille Alessia

DROPS Design 27.10.2018 kl. 18:29:

Buongiorno Alessia. Provi a fare un campione con ferri di misura più grande. Buon lavoro!

Beryl Wilks 23.10.2018 - 11:20:

Sorry I am still not understanding .. finishing fishermans rib I have approx 81 sts, change to st st, dec 5sts evenly = 50 sts. what do I do with the other 31 sts which I gained from row one of fishermans rib yarn overs ? Do I carry on st st with 81 sts in total ?

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 14:41:

Dear Mrs Wilks, in size S you have a total of 55 sts worked in Fisherman's rib (including YOs of the pattern), on the first row stocking stitch work the YO and the slipped stitch together (= 1 stitch) and at the same time decrease 5 sts evenly (= work tog: YO, slipped st + stitch before/after this YO and slipped st) = 55-5= 50 sts. Happy knitting!

Beryl Wilks 22.10.2018 - 23:11:

Thank you for this lovely pattern, I am in the process of knitting the first sleeve and have just completed the Fisherman's Rib section ... am I mistaken or has the yarn over increases on Row one of the Fisherman's Rib NOT been taken into account when reducing for the stocking stitch continuation?

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 09:52:

Dear Mrs Wilks, the yarn overs from the pattern are not included in the number of sts. Happy knitting!

Nathalie 14.10.2018 - 16:04:

Bonjour, si on commence les diminutions 1 pour le dos et le devant à partir de 8cm et que l'on en fait 5 tous les 6cm (taille M), cela fait monter le tricot jusqu'à 38cm. Or, il faut commencer les emmanchures à 35cm. Je ne comprends pas. N'y aurait-il pas une erreur (diminuer tous les 6 rangs au lieu de 6cm par exemple ?). Je vous remercie de m'éclairer.

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 10:29:

Bonjour Nathalie, vous commencez la 1ère diminution à 8 cm, puis tous les 6 cm: la 2ème sera à 14 cm, la 3ème à 20 cm, la 4ème à 26 cm et la 5ème à 32 cm. Vous rabattrez ensuite les emmanchures à 35 cm, soit 3 cm après la dernière diminution. Bon tricot!

Salve. Vivo a EMPOLI (Firenze). Sapreste indicarmi se c’e Un punto vendita dei vostri prodotti vicino a me? Grazie

Buongiorno Valentina. A questa pagina trova l’elenco dei rivenditori Drops in Italia, con tutti i loro riferimenti per contattarli. Buon lavoro!

Valentina 09.10.2018 - 09:13:

Il campione deve essere fatto con i ferri n.5 o n.7? Grazie

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:45:

Buongiorno Valentina, il campione è lavorato con i ferri n° 7 mm. Buon lavoro!

Nathalie 06.10.2018 - 10:22:

Bonjour, La majorité des tricots drops sont sur aiguille circulaire et j'y ai pris goût ! Pourquoi celui-ci est-il en aller retour ? peut-on convertir les explications en circulaire pour les manches et associer dos et devant (en enlevant 4 mailles lisières ) ou cela va-t-il coincer pour les emmanchures ? Merci !

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 08:08:

Bonjour Nathalie, on choisit de tricoter sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles. Pour ce modèle, seul le col sera tricoté en rond. Vous trouverez ici des informations utiles sur l'adaptation d'un tricot sur aiguilles droites. Bon tricot!

Hej, Super fin opskrift. Jeg forstår ikke sætningen: "strik rib (=1 ret/2 vrang)". For det første er ribstrik vel 1 ret, 1 vrang eller 2 ret, 2 vrang. Er det en fejl i opskriften, eller forstår jeg det bare ikke? For det andet skal jeg lave den i en størrelse medium, hvor man begynder med 83 masker. 83 masker minus de to kantmasker der er i hver side giver 81 masker. Men det vil 2 ret, 2 vrang jo ikke gå op i?

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 13:24:

Hej Juliane, jo når man strikker skiftevis ret og vrang så er det rib (81/3 = 27 gange) God fornøjelse! :)
