EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Find your size in the diagrams. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern it is important that the strands at the back of the piece are not tight. You can use a larger needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.

KNITTING TIP-2:
It is important that the knitting tension is maintained also in height, or the yoke will be too short and the armholes too small! Check the tension as you go and if it is right in width but not in length, you can work extra rows with forest green after the 2nd and/or the 3rd rows with increases (row with arrow) to get the right length for your size.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 84 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 20) = 4.2. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 54 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 2) = 27. 
In this example, decrease by knitting each 26th and 27th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2 (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 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, from mid back and top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle, top down.

JUMPER:
NECK:
Cast on 84-88-92-100-104-108 stitches with short circular needle size 4.5 mm and forest green. Knit 1 round. Now work rib (knit 2, purl 2) until the rib measures 4 cm.

YOKE:
Change to short circular needle size 5.5 mm. Now knit 1 round where you increase 20-20-24-24-28-28 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 104-108-116-124-132-136 stitches. Knit 1 round.


Now work pattern A.1 (find your size in the diagram) in the round and increase stitches evenly on the rounds marked with an arrow in the diagram. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Read KNITTING TIP-1 and KNITTING TIP-2!
ARROW-1: Increase 24-28-32-32-32-32 stitches evenly on round = 128-136-148-156-164-168 stitches.
ARROW-2: Increase 32-32-36-36-36-40 stitches evenly on round = 160-168-184-192-200-208 stitches.
ARROW-3: Increase 32-36-38-36-40-44 stitches evenly on round = 192-204-222-228-240-252 stitches.
ARROW-4: Increase 24-30-30-30-30-36 stitches evenly on round = 216-234-252-258-270-288 stitches.
ARROW-5: Increase 6-12-24-30-30-36 stitches evenly on round = 222-246-276-288-300-324 stitches. When the increases on the round marked with arrow-5 are finished, continue as follows in the different sizes:

Sizes S, M, L and XL:
Continue until there is 1 round left in the diagrams. The piece should now measure 25-27-27-30 cm from the cast-on edge down.

Sizes XXL and XXXL:
Continue with pattern as before and increase as follows:
ARROW-6: Increase 28-28 stitches evenly on round = 328-352 stitches. When the increases on the round marked with arrow-6 are finished, continue until there is 1 round left in the diagrams. The piece should now measure 33-34 cm from the cast-on edge down.

ALL SIZES:
Work the last round in the diagrams as follows: Work the first 31-34-39-42-48-52 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 48-54-60-60-68-72 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 63-69-78-84-96-104 stitches (= front piece), place the next 48-54-60-60-68-72 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the remaining 32-35-39-42-48-52 stitches (= half back piece). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 138-150-168-184-208-224 stitches. Now work pattern as follows: Work A.2 (find your size in diagram) in the round. The pattern on the body should match the pattern on the yoke so that each repeat of A.2 is over each repeat of A.1! In sizes S and M increase 6-2 stitches evenly on the row marked with a black dot in A.2 (do not increase in sizes L, XL, XXL and XXXL) = 144-152-168-184-208-224 stitches. When A.2 has been completed in height continue with moss green and stocking stitch. Now insert 1 marker thread in each side as follows: Insert the first marker thread after the first 36-38-42-46-52-56 stitches, then the second marker thread after the next 72-76-84-92-104-112 stitches. There are 36-38-42-46-52-56 stitches left on the round after the second marker thread. On the next round increase 2 stitches in each side (= 4 stitches increased on the row) - read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 4-2-3-4-5-6 cm a total of 2-4-4-4-3-3 times = 152-168-184-200-220-236 stitches. When the piece measures 24-24-26-25-24-25 cm increase 24-28-28-32-36-36 stitches evenly on round = 176-196-212-232-256-272 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work rib (knit 2, purl 2). When the rib measures 6 cm cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl; but to avoid the cast off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after each 4th stitch (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). The piece measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 48-54-60-60-68-72 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles/short circular needle size 5.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 new stitches cast on under the sleeve = 54-60-66-68-76-80 stitches. Insert a marker thread mid under sleeve, i.e. in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 stitches cast on under sleeve. Let marker thread follow in piece, it is used for the decrease under the sleeve. Continue in the round with A.3 (find your size in the diagram). NOTE (applies to sizes S, M and L): Because the yoke was finished in the middle of a pattern repeat, it is important that the pattern on the sleeve matches the pattern on the yoke so that each repeat of A.3 is over each repeat of A.2! Make sure that you start on the right stitch in the diagram so that the pattern fits around the whole sleeve.
Now work as follows in the different sizes:

Sizes S, M and L:
On the first round with a star in A.3 decrease 2-4-2 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP-1 and on the second round with a star decrease 4-8-8 stitches evenly = 48-48-56 stitches.

Sizes XL, XXL and XXXL:
On the round with a star in A.3 decrease 4-4-0 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 64-72-80 stitches.

When A.3 has been completed, continue with stocking stitch and moss green. On the next round start to decrease under the sleeve - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this approx. every 2-2-1-1-1-1 cm a total of 7-7-10-13-16-19 times = 34-34-36-38-40-42 stitches. When the sleeve measures 34-32-33-30-27-27 cm from the division, knit 1 round where you increase 6-6-8-6-8-10 stitches evenly = 40-40-44-44-48-52 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 6 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 40-38-39-36-33-33 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Bonjour , j'ai commencé le modèle en taille S avec la laine et les aiguilles indiquées. mon échantillon réalisé selon vos recommandations est de bonnes dimensions. mais l'encolure est vraiment très petite, la tête ne passe pas. quand on regarde la photo du modèle, cette encolure est large, loin du cou. pouvez vous m'aider ? merci

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 16:24:

Bonjour Mme Gans, essayez par exemple de monter les mailles plus souplement pour que l'encolure passe bien la tête. Votre magasin aura probablement d'autres astuces pour vous, n'hésitez pas à le contacter, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Robin Munch 21.01.2019 - 00:53:

Your pattern says that the tension uses Drop Air and gives the tension as 16sts to 10cm. Drop air yarn is 17sts to 10cm. Can you please explain the difference and also suggest substitute yarns. Thank you.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 07:10:

Hi Robin, The pattern uses 5.5 mm needles instead of the 5 mm needles suggested for Air, so there will be fewer stitches per 10 cm. Alternative yarns could be selected from yarn group C which Air belongs to. Happy knitting!

Bep 12.01.2019 - 22:15:

Ben begonnen met dit prachtige patroon maar wanneer moet ik met de lange rondbreinaald beginnen.

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 11:35:

Dag Bep,

Dit kun je naar eigen inzicht doen als de steken niet meer goed op de korte rondbreinaald passen.

Cath 22.10.2018 - 14:08:

Bonjour, Il me semble que les quantités de laines sont inversées pour réaliser le même pull que celui dela photo. Le modèle mentionne 200 g vert forêt et 100g vert mousse, alors que d’aºres La photo, il semblerait que ce soit le contraire... Cordialement.

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 14:43:

Bonjour Cathy, le nom des couleurs était inversé, mais les quantités correspondaient bien à la référence de la bonne couleur, la correction a été faite, merci, bon tricot!

Helena 14.09.2018 - 16:04:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, ist in der Massskizze die Angabe auf Brusthöhe für unter der Brust oder für auf der Brust? LG

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 07:57:

Liebe Helena, die Angaben für die Brust gilt für die Masse am Anfang vom Rumpfteil - Siehe auch hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kristine 14.09.2018 - 13:11:

Hvor kommer navnet til denne modellen fra?

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 11:47:

Hei Kristine. Når det stemmes over hvilke modeller som skal være med i hver sesong kan de som vil foreslå navn gjøre dette samtidig (Denne avstemmingen er åpen for alle). Vi tar så en avgjørelse på hvilket navnforslag vi syntes passer best og dette blir navnet på plagget.

Reingold 10.09.2018 - 11:35:

Je ne vois plus les images des pulls, seulement des points d'interrogation s'affichent. Pourquoi ce changement ,

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 08:55:

Bonjour Mme Reingold, les images ne s'affichaient plus en raison d'un problème technique qui a maintenant été résolu, les photos, diagrammes et symboles sont à nouveau visibles. Bon tricot!

Lena 10.09.2018 - 11:22:

Leider fehlen in der Anleitung die Diagramme für A1. Könnten Sie diese noch einstellen?

Reingold 29.08.2018 - 14:30:

Est-ce que ce pull à une encolure Yoke ?

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 12:54:

Bonjour Mme Reingold, je ne connais pas cette expression je suis désolée. Ce pull se tricote de haut en bas, avec un col rond, puis on tricote l'empiècement jacquard en augmentant régulièrement pour créer la largeur voulue pour la carrure, on sépare ensuite les mailles des manches et celles du dos et du devant. Bon tricot!

Jette Petersen 21.08.2018 - 12:34:

Kan det pase at jeg kun skal bruge 6 ngl. Air Garn til model ai-152 ?, medium Mvh Jette Petersen

DROPS Design 21.08.2018 kl. 14:47:

Hej Jette, ja det skal stemme, det er et meget let garn :)
