EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 104 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 24) = 4.3.
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.
When decreasing knit approx. each 3rd and 4th stitch together.

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 size larger needle when working pattern if this is a problem.

KNITTING TIP-2:
It is also important to maintain the knitting tension in height or the yoke will be too short and the armholes too small!

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves):
Start 2 stitches before the stitch with the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 1 (= the stitch with the marker thread), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

JUMPER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck, yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 104-108-112-120-124-132 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and dark rose. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Knit 1 round where you increase 24-28-32-32-36-44 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 128-136-144-152-160-176 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and knit 1 round. Then work yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Read KNITTING TIP-1 and KNITTING TIP-2! Work A.1 in the round (= 32-34-36-38-40-44 repeats of 4 stitches).
Continue this pattern in the round.
AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in A.1 increase evenly on round as described below – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
On the round marked with arrow-1 increase 32-32-32-32-40-40 stitches evenly on round = 160-168-176-184-200-216 stitches (there is now room for 20-21-22-23-25-27 repeats of 8 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-2 increase 32-40-40-40-40-48 stitches evenly on round = 192-208-216-224-240-264 stitches (there is now room for 24-26-27-28-30-33 repeats of 8 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-3 increase 32-32-40-48-48-40 stitches evenly on round = 224-240-256-272-288-304 stitches (there is now room for 14-15-16-17-18-19 repeats of 16 stitches).
On the round marked with arrow-4 increase 32-32-32-32-40-48 stitches evenly on round (there is now room for 32-34-36-38-41-44 repeats of 8 stitches) = 256-272-288-304-328-352 stitches.
On the round marked with arrow-5 increase 32-32-32-24-32-32 stitches evenly on round (there is now room for 36-38-40-41-45-48 repeats of 8 stitches) = 288-304-320-328-360-384 stitches. The increases are now finished in sizes S, M and L.
On the row marked with arrow-6 (for sizes XL, XXL and XXXL) increase 24-24-32 stitches evenly on round = 288-304-320-352-384-416 stitches on the needle. The increases are now finished in sizes XL, XXL and XXXL.
Continue working until just the last round in A.1 is left. The piece now measures 22-24-26-28-30-31 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 40-44-46-50-56-64 stitches as shown in last row in the diagram (= ½ back piece), place the next 64-64-68-76-80-80 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-12-12-16-16 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 80-88-92-100-112-128 stitches as shown in the last round in the diagram (= front piece), place the next 64-64-68-76-80-80 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-12-12-16-16 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 40-44-46-50-56-64 stitches as shown in last round in diagram (= ½ back piece).
Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 176-192-208-224-256-288 stitches. The first round is worked as follows:
SIZES S, M, XL and XXL: Work A.2 in the round (= 22-24-28-32 repeats of 8 stitches). When A.2 has been completed, work A.3 in the round (= 11-12-14-16 repeats of 16 stitches). Then continue as described under ALL SIZES.
SIZES L and XXXL: Work A.3 in the round (= 13-18 repeats of 16 stitches). Then continue as described under ALL SIZES.
ALL SIZES:
Continue A.3 as described above. A.3 is repeated in height as far as the rib. AT THE SAME TIME on the round marked with an arrow in A.3 increase 16 stitches evenly on round in all sizes = 192-208-224-240-272-304 stitches (this increase is only on the first repeat of A.3 in height).
Continue this pattern (there is now room for 1 more repeat of A.3 in width).
Work until the piece measures approx. 29-29-29-29-29-30 cm from the division for sleeves – finish after a complete pattern section in dark rose.
Knit 1 round with dark rose where you increase 40-40-44-48-56-60 stitches evenly on round = 232-248-268-288-328-364 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight (if this is a problem, you can make 1 yarn over after each 8th stitch at the same time as casting off - the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches. The jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 64-64-68-76-80-80 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-12-12-16-16 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 72-72-80-88-96-96 stitches on the needle. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-12-12-16-16 stitches under the sleeve, i.e. insert the marker thread in the first stitch after the middle, count 35-35-39-43-47-47 stitches and insert 1 marker thread in the next stitch (= mid-stitch). There are now 35-35-39-43-47-47 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards. The marker thread under the sleeve is later used when you decrease under the sleeve and the marker thread on top is used to count to where the pattern starts.
READ THE REST OF THIS SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Work the last round in A.1 so that A.1 finishes in the same way as on the body.
PATTERN:
In sizes S, M, XL, XXL work A.2 in the round (= 9-9-11-12 repeats of 8 stitches), but count out from the middle - mid-stitch in A.2 should match the stitch with the marker thread on top of sleeve. When A.2 has been completed, work A.3 in the same way. In sizes L and XXXL work A.3 straight after working the last round in A.1 and count out from the mid-stitch in the same way as for the other sizes.
A.3 is repeated in height until the piece measures 29-28-26-23-22-21 cm from the division – finish after a complete repeat in height. Then work A.4 in the round in the same way.
DECREASING:
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 3-3-3-3-2-2 cm decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 2½-3-2-1½-1½-1½ cm a total of 14-12-16-18-20-20 times = 44-48-48-52-56-56 stitches.
When the sleeve measures approx. 39-38-36-34-33-32 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke) knit 1 round with dark rose where you increase 4 stitches evenly on round in all sizes = 48-52-52-56-60-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight (if this is a problem, you can make 1 yarn over after each 8th stitch at the same time as casting off - yarn overs cast off as normal stitches). The sleeve measures approx. 43-42-40-38-37-36 cm from the division down. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hallo, Ik vind het zo,n mooi patroon, maar ben al een paar maal overnieuw begonnen omdat ik de overgangen naar de volgende naald blijf zien,wat ik lelijk vind. Is hier misschien een oplossing voor? Alvast bedankt. Mw. Kooistra

Dag F. Kooistra,

Dat is inderdaad jammer en ik heb hier helaas geen oplossing voor. Je blijft altijd overgangen zien in rondgebreide Scandinavische patronen.

Finnes det samme mønsteret eller et som er helt likt men som strikkes motsatt vei, fra bunn og oppover?

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 14:48:

Hei Kirtsen. Denne modellen finnes kun ovenfra og ned dessverre. Dette fordi det gir mer fleksibilitet (feks for å tilpasse etter personlige mål) når man strikker ovenfra og ned, spesielt bærestykket. Det er også lettere å prøve plagget på underveis. Det er ikke noe i veien for at du selv gjør om oppskriften slik at den strikkes nedenfra og opp om du øsnker det. Begynn nederst på bolen, øk der det skal felles, fell der det skal økes og strikk diagrammene motsatt vei. God fornøyelse.

In de laatste naald boven de onderboord zou je moeten meerderen. Het lijkt echter logixher om daar te minderen. Klopt dit?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 08:42:

Dag Wilma,

Het klopt in dit geval dat je moet meerderen en dat je dus meer steken hebt voor de boord onderaan het lijf.

Fiona Allen 28.10.2018 - 00:16:

If the A3 pattern is to be repeated then it needs to have an added row of off white at the very top to maintain consistency.

Arnhild Sand 22.10.2018 - 20:34:

Meldingen jeg nettopp sendte, ble sendt som kommentar. Den skulle vært sendt som spørsmål så jeg håper jeg får svar på spørsmålet.

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 08:29:

Hei Arnhild. Du setter det første merket i den 5 masken (Ikke mellom 4 og 5 maske), så teller du videre 35 masker, før du setter andre merke i den 36 masken. Du har nå 35 masker mellom hver maske med merke i. God fornøyelse

Arnhild Sand 22.10.2018 - 20:29:

Hei! Jeg får ikke maskeantallet til å stemme ved innsetting av ermet. Jeg strikker i str M og setter merke etter de 4 første m som er plukket opp under ermet. Teller 35 m og setter nytt merke. Det skal da være igjen 35 m, men jeg får 37 m. Totalt skal det være 72 m, men 35 + 35 = 70 m. Hva skal jeg gjøre? På forhånd takk.

Lene Nielsen 14.10.2018 - 11:15:

Hvor ser jeg hvilken størrelse jeg skal bruge, ved godt der er en tegning på 9 side men syntes den er svær, kan feks. ikke se et mål over bryst, målet længer nede virker meget lille hvis det er omkreds for jeg er 77 cm under bryst og bruger normalt en S str.\r\nPå forhånd tak

Sussie 22.09.2018 - 21:01:

Kommentar til nedenstående spørgsmål: A.3 er på standardvisning, men ikke på mobilversion, så behøver ikke svar på det , tak

Sussie 22.09.2018 - 17:22:

Jeg strikker blusen i L, jeg kan altså ikke se der står A.3 nogen steder? Der står A.2 fire steder,og A.4 et sted på de små mønstre nederst?

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 10:41:

Hej Sussie, Du finder diagram A.3 aller nederst i opskriften under de andre diagrammet. God fornøjelse!
