EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
Jumper: See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. Work the entire pattern in stocking stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern with several colours, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle number when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

INCREASE TIP (applies to under sleeves):
Work until 1 stitch remains before marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. 

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 240 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreased/increases to be done (e.g. 40) = 6. In this example knit approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together. When increasing make 1 yarn over after every 6th stitch. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease for raglan on each side of marker in every transition between sleeves and body. Begin 2 stitches before marker, knit 2 together, marker is here, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
For better shape work an elevation in the back of neck with dark grey. Insert 1 marker mid back of neck. Knit until 14-15-16-15-16-18 stitches past marker have been worked, turn, tighten yarn and purl 28-30-32-30-32-36 stitches. Turn and knit 42-45-48-45-48-54 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and purl 56-60-64-60-64-72 stitches back. Turn and knit 70-75-80-75-80-90 stitches, turn, tighten yarn and purl 84-90-96-90-96-108 stitches back. Turn piece, tighten yarn and knit until mid back. 

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece in the round on circular needle, bottom up. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

BODY:
Cast on 240-262-282-306-334-366 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with medium grey. Work rib (knit 1/purl 1) for 7 cm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 40-44-46-50-56-60 stitches evenly - read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 200-218-236-256-278-306 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Continue in stocking stitch. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of round and 1 marker after 100-109-118-128-139-153 stitches (= in the sides). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 30-31-32-32-34-35 cm, cast off 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches in each side for armholes (i.e. cast off 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches on each side of both markers) = 92-101-108-118-127-139 stitches remain on front and back piece. Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 58-58-64-64-64-72 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm with medium grey. Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) for 5 cm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 10-10-10-10-10-12 stitches evenly = 48-48-54-54-54-60 stitches. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 9-9-9-7-9-8 cm, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 7th-6th-7th-6th-5th-5th round 12-14-12-14-16-16 times in total = 72-76-78-82-86-92 stitches. When piece measures 42-41-41-39-40-39 cm (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), cast off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under sleeve = 64-68-68-72-74-78 stitches remain on needle. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE: 
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 312-338-352-380-402-434 stitches on needle. Insert 1 marker in every transition between sleeves and body = 4 markers. Work stocking stitch with medium grey. AT THE SAME TIME on next round decrease for RAGLAN – see explanation above (= 8 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every other round 2-2-3-3-3-3 times in total = 296-322-328-356-378-410 stitches. After last round with decrease knit 1 round while decreasing 24-34-24-32-36-32 stitches evenly = 272-288-304-324-342-378 stitches remain on needle. Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size = 17-18-19-18-19-21 repetitions on round). Read KNITTING TIP! Continue pattern like this and decrease as shown in diagram. When A.1 has been worked (finish after a round marked with arrow in diagram for correct size), there are 119-126-133-126-133-147 stitches on needle and piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down. For better fit work an elevation at the back of neck so that yoke is somewhat higher on back piece. This elevation can be skipped, to make the neck the same at the front and back - read ELEVATION. 

NECK EDGE:
Knit 1 round with dark grey while decreasing 25-30-35-26-29-39 stitches evenly = 94-96-98-100-104-108 stitches around the neck edge. Switch to a short circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME on last round increase 22-22-24-26-26-26 stitches evenly = 116-118-122-126-130-134 stitches. Then work rib = knit 1/purl 1. When rib measures 8 cm, work 1 ridge in garter stitch. Loosely cast off - make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Fold neck edge double and sew on the inside, ridge against ridge.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Finner inte längre diagrammet här på sidan?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:57:

Hei Sophie. Gjelder dette uansett hvaslags enhet du bruker (mobil, PC, nettbrett)? Vi har nå sjekket den svenske oppskriften, og diagrammene ligger der som de pleier. God fornøyelse

Elisabeth Poisson 13.01.2019 - 10:29:

Bonjour Je n'arrive pas à imprimer ce modèle, ni à le convertir en PDF. Ce que d'habitude je fais sans problème. Je suis cliente des laine Drop (boutique Luce ou Kalidou). Merci pour votre site

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 11:13:

Bonjour Mme Poisson, nous avons pu imprimer ce modèle sans problèmes, vérifiez bien les paramètres de votre imprimante, et éventuellement, nettoyez le cache de votre navigateur et essayez à nouveau. Bon tricot!

Peter 12.01.2019 - 08:08:

Er jeg den eneste der synes det er absurd mange masker, der skal slås op? Når jeg visualisere endemålet for en large, så ville modellen på billedet til opskriften have et telt over sig. Er det bare mig der er helt skudt i roen? Strikker til en tynd, knap så høj kvinde, med lange arme og derfor har jeg overvejet large. Men skulle man måske gå ned i en medium? Armlængden passer på Large, men det er viden jeg er bange for bliver alt for stor :)

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 09:01:

Hei Peter. Om du ser på målskissen nederst på siden vil du se alle plaggets mål i de forskjellige størrelsene. En large vil altså bli 56 cm fra den ene til den andre siden (112 cm rundt). Dette stemmer overens med maskeantallet. Om du syntes dette blir for vidt kan du gjerne gå ned til medium, men fortsatt strikke etter large på lengden. Vær da obs på at garnforbruket ditt kan bli noe høyere enn oppgitt i medium. God fornøyelse

Kerstin 09.01.2019 - 16:41:

Hej! Var ser jag måtten på de olika storlekarna bredd och längd

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 09:02:

Hei Kerstin. Nederst på siden, under diagrammene finner du en målskisse med alle plaggets mål i de ulike størrelsene. God fornøyelse.

Marie-Ange 05.01.2019 - 10:25:

Beste, Stekenverhouding : 21 steken in de breedte en 28 naalden in de hoogte in tricotsteek bekom ik met naalden n° 4. Als ik de boorden met nummer 4 brei, welke naalden dien ik dan te nemen voor de rest (n° 5 ?) om het mooiste resultaat te bekomen ? Ben van plan om Medium te breien (buikomtrek +/- 99 cm) Heb boord met breinaalden nummer 3 maat M gebreid maar kom veel te smal uit (76 cm)

DROPS Design 05.01.2019 kl. 12:39:

Dag Marie-Ange,

De stekenverhouding van 21 x 28 geldt voor tricotsteek, dus dan neem je voor de boorden een kleinere naald, nr 3, zoals aagegeven bij 'Benodigdheden voor het werk'. Je kunt dan maat M aanhouden. De breedtemaat die bij de tekening staat gaat over de breedte in tricotsteek, de boord is rekbaar en zal minder breed zijn. Als de verhouding in tricotsteek klopt, kun je gewoon verder breien.

Janny 04.01.2019 - 19:16:

Als ik maat 44 heb klopt het dan met maat L hier. ik kan namelijk niks vinden om te kijken wat bij welke maat hoort

DROPS Design 06.01.2019 kl. 13:25:

Dag Janny,

Maat XL komt ongeveer overeen met maat 44, maar het is het handigst dat je even een trui neemt die je lekker zit en dan de afmetingen vergelijkt met de afmetingen in de tekening onder het patroon.

Debra 10.12.2018 - 15:45:

Hi can you clarify all the double pointed needles I need please.

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 16:37:

Dear Debra, sure, you need double pointed needles size 4 mm (for sleeves )+ 3 mm (for rib on sleeve). See our double pointed needles here - You can also work in the round with the magic loop technique - see video instead of with double pointed needles, as you prefer. Happy knitting!

Bitten 08.12.2018 - 11:35:

Jeg har strikket trøjen og i forhold til billedet, hvor trøjen er løs og lidt lang, så svarer det ikke til mønstret. Der er blusen kort. Jeg forventer ikke at skulle strikke str l til en model, der normalt bruger xs.

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 09:57:

Hej Bitten, hvis du strikker blusen i DROPS Karisma og holder den strikkefasthed som står i opskriften, så vil du også få samme mål som du finder i måleskitsen nederst i opskriften. Det lyder til at du har flere pinde på 10 cm i højden end hvad vi skriver i opskriften (28 pinde på 10 cm). Prøv evt med tykkere pinde og lav altid en strikkeprøve først. God fornøjelse!

Tove 08.12.2018 - 09:23:

Hej, vil I hjælpe med farvenumrene på model A (den blå-lige)

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 09:47:

Hej Tove Farvekombinationerne er: A) DROPS Karisma 69, 50, 56, 01, 55. B) DROPS Karisma 55, 52, 56, 01, 77. God fornøjelse!

Bente Lambertsen 06.12.2018 - 14:20:

Hvilke farvenumre er anvendt på B-model brunlige

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 11:15:

Hei Bente. Det er brukte disse fargene: DROPS Karisma 55, 52, 56, 01, 77. God fornøyelse
