EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
Sweater: See diagram A.1.
Hat: See diagrams A.2 and A.3. Choose diagram for desired pattern.
Work all stitches in stockinette stitch.

KNITTING TIP (applies to multi-colored pattern):
To avoid the knitting gauge to tighten when working pattern, 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.

ELEVATION:
Insert a marker thread in first stitch on round (= mid back). Begin from right side and knit 11-11-12-13-13-14 stitches past marker thread, turn, tighten yarn and purl 22-22-24-26-26-28 stitches. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 33-33-36-39-39-42, turn, tighten yarn and purl 44-44-48-52-52-56. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 55-55-60-65-65-70, turn, tighten yarn and purl 66-66-72-78-78-84, turn and knit until beginning of round.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 108 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreased/increases to be done (e.g. 16) = 6.8. In this example work approx. every 6th and 7th stitch together.
When increasing make 1 yarn over after every approx. 7th stitch. On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle from mid back, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 108-116-120-124-128-132 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light gray green. Knit 1 round. Switch to beige brown. Now work rib = knit 2/purl 2 until piece measures 3 cm / 1''. Knit 1 round while decreasing 16-19-19-20-20-20 stitches evenly - read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 92-97-101-104-108-112 stitches. Knit 1 round while increasing 20-22-32-36-39-42 stitches evenly = 112-119-133-140-147-154 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. 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. 

YOKE:
Now work pattern A.1 (= 7 stitches) 16-17-19-20-21-22 repetitions on round (begin at your size in diagram) - read KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue pattern in the round like this. When entire A.1 has been worked vertically there is 288-306-342-360-378-396 stitches on round. Piece should now measure 23-24-24-24-24-24 cm / 9"-9 3/8"-9 3/8"-9 3/8"-9 3/8"-9 3/8".
Size S is now done, continue with next section below.
Continue as follows in size M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL:
Size M, L and XL:
Work in stockinette stitch with beige brown until piece measures 25-27-28 cm / 9 ¾"-10 5/8"-11" from cast-on edge, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 24-24-24 cm / 9 3/8"-9 3/8"-9 3/8" increase 14-6-20 stitches evenly = 320-348-380 stitches. Continue with next section below.
Size XXL and XXXL:
Work in stockinette stitch with beige brown until piece measures 30-32 cm / 11 ¾"-12 ½" from cast-on edge, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 24-24 cm / 9 3/8"-9 3/8" increase 11-14 stitches evenly and when piece measures 27-29 cm / 10 5/8"-11 3/8" increase 11-14 stitches evenly = 400-424 stitches. Continue with next section.

ALL SIZES:
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Work 42-46-50-56-60-65 stitches as before (= half back piece), slip the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 84-92-100-112-120-130 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the 42-46-50-56-60-65 stitches as before (= left front piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 184-200-220-244-264-288 stitches. Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast on under sleeve in each side = 92-100-110-122-132-144 stitches between marker threads on both front and back piece.
Work stockinette stitch in the round with beige brown. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 6th row (approx. 2 cm / 3/4'') 10 times in total in each side = 224-240-260-284-304-328 stitches. When piece measures 24-24-24-25-25-25 cm / 9 3/8"-9 3/8"-9 3/8"-9 ¾"-9 ¾"-9 ¾" from division, knit 1 round while increasing 60-64-68-72-76-84 stitches evenly = 284-304-328-356-380-412 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl but to avoid at tight bind-off edge make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (bind off yarn overs as stitches). Sweater measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle size 4 mm / US 6/double pointed needles and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 68-76-84-88-92-96 stitches on needle. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches (= mid under sleeve). Work stockinette stitch in the round with beige brown. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every approx. 8th-6th-5th-4th-4th-4th round 12-15-18-19-20-21 times in total = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. When sleeve measures 38-36-35-34-33-31 cm / 14 7/8"-14 1/8"-13 ¾"-13 3/8"-13"-12 1/8" from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), knit 1 round while increasing 12-14-16-18-20-22 stitches evenly = 54-60-64-68-72-76 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl but to avoid at tight bind-off edge make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (bind off yarn overs as stitches). Sleeve measures approx. 42-40-39-38-37-35 cm / 16 ½"-15 ¾"-15 ¼"-14 7/8"-14 ½"-13 ¾" from division and down. Work the other sleeve the same way.

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

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE GARMENT:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.
There are 2 different diagrams for hat. If you want pattern with a big tree work according to diagram A.2 and if you want the pattern with a small tree work according to diagram A.3.

Cast on 124 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with beige brown. Knit 1 round. Switch to light gray green. Work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6, knit 1 round while decreasing 16 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly) = 108 stitches. Now work pattern A.2 or A.3 – choose diagram for large or small tree (= 18 stitches) 6 times in total on round. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When entire A.2/A.3 have been worked vertically, there are 12 stitches on row. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches on needle, tighten tog and fasten.

It's the first time I've made a top down Jumper. What type of cast on do you suggest for the neck?

DROPS Design 15.03.2019 kl. 08:58:

Dear Jean, you can use your usual way to cast on, make sure that the cast on edge will not be too tight, depending on how you are casting on sts, you can use a larger needle if required. Happy knitting!

Birgit 06.02.2019 - 14:37:

Wenn ich den Pullover aus dickerem Garn (Drops Air) stricken möchte, und eigentlich Größe XXL habe, in welcher Größe stricke ich dann die Anleitung? Oder geht das gar nicht umzurechnen?

DROPS Design 06.02.2019 kl. 16:17:

Liebe Birgit, DROPS Air gehört zur Garngruppe C hat eine andere Maschenprobe und steht hier nicht als Alternative zu Garngruppe B wie Merino oder Karisma - Sky könnte aber eine gute alternative, etwas ähnlich zu Air und Garngruppe B. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Liliane 02.02.2019 - 22:10:

A une début de l\'encolure : diminutions puis augmentations juste après ?? A combien de rangs d\'écart ?\r\n\r\nPour tricoter la rehausse dos en rangs raccourcis : a combien de rangs après les côtes 2/2 ?\r\nMerci

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 11:56:

Bonjour Liliane, après les côtes, on tricote 1 tour endroit en répartissant des augmentations ou des diminutions en fonction de la taille = 92-112 m, puis on tricote encore 1 tour endroit en augmentant à 112-154 m. On tricote ensuite la réhausse tout de suite après, soit 2 rangs après les côtes. Bon tricot!

Fabienne Jaulin 10.01.2019 - 19:30:

Bonjour, Je suis prête à commander ma laine et en voyant le nuancier sur le site de Kalidou, j'ai un énorme doute. Pouvez-vous me confirmer les coloris que l'on voit sur le pull porté par le mannequin? Vous indiquez un coloris 54 beige brun comme couleur principale, mais moi, quand je regarde le nuancier, je vois un coloris 64 gris violet. Quelles couleurs dois-je commander pour faire exactement le même pull que celui porté par le mannequin? Merci d'avance!

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 09:13:

Bonjoru Mme Jaulin, les couleurs Karisma utilisées pour ce pull sont bien les couleurs 54 et 69. N'hésitez pas à demander conseil -même par mail ou téléphone - à votre magasin pour changer les couleurs à votre convenance. Bon tricot!

Maeve 08.12.2018 - 10:48:

I'm buying yarn for this project and am wondering if I could get away with buying just 312m of yarn for the second colour in size L?

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 08:38:

Dear Maeve, you will find the total amount of yarn required for the set or each individual piece under the header - see 3rd indications in each yarn, either DROPS Karisma or DROPS Merino Extra Fine. I cannot find anywhere it says 312 m in the 2nd colour in size L. Should you need any assistance choosing the yarn you are welcome to contact your DROPS store, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Judith 06.12.2018 - 20:41:

En nog een vraag: wordt de hoogte van de pas gemeten met of zonder verhoging? Bijvoorbeeld midden achter (met) of midden voor (zonder)?

DROPS Design 09.12.2018 kl. 17:03:

Dag Judith,

Omdat de verhoging optioneel is, meet je de lengte van de pas zonder verhoging; je kunt dus het beste aan de voorkant opmeten.

Judith 03.12.2018 - 16:34:

Ik begrijp niet waarom er in de halsrand (mt M) eerst 19 steken geminderd worden en na één naald weer 22 gemeerderd

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 12:17:

Dag Judith,

Dit wordt gedaan om de halsrand elastischer te maken.

Fabienne Jaulin 14.11.2018 - 20:38:

Bonjour, Quelles sont les couleurs pour les combinaisons B et C qu'on voit sur la photo? Merci beaucoup!

DROPS Design 14.11.2018 kl. 22:19:

Bonjour Fabienne, les couleurs pour les combinaisons B et C sont comme suit: couleur B - DROPS Merino Extra Fine numeros 5 et 13, couleur C - DROPS Karisma numeros 56 et 11. Bon travail!

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 - 09:36:

Colour alternatives shown are: A) DROPS Karisma 21, 16 B) DROPS Merino Extra Fine 5, 13 C) DROPS Karisma 56, 11 D) DROPS Merino Extra Fine 6, 7

Linn 09.10.2018 - 22:00:

Hvilke farger er brukt på genseren?

DROPS Design 10.10.2018 kl. 07:41:
