EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.
Diagram A.1b/A.3b measures approx. 10 cm in width.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 88 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 20) = 4.4.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately approx. every 4th and 5th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Increase by making 1 yarn over. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

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.

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE GARMENT:
Worked top down on circular needle. Work first a yoke in the round on circular needle. Now divide yoke for body and sleeves. Continue in the round on circular needle until approx. 16 cm remain, then work front and back piece separately (= vent in the side). Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 88-92-96-104-108-112 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. When piece measures 2 cm, increase 20-20-24-20-24-28 stitches evenly on next round - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 108-112-120-124-132-140 stitches.
Purl 1 round. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work as follows (round begins mid back):

Half back piece: Work A.1a (= 17 stitches), 2-2-4-4-6-8 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan).
Right sleeve: Work A.2 (= 7 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan), 2-4-4-6-6-6 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan), A.2 over the next 7 stitches
Front piece: Work 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan), 2-2-4-4-6-8 stitches in stocking stitch, A.3a (= 17 stitches) (= mid front), A.1a over the next 17 stitches, 2-2-4-4-6-8 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan).
Left sleeve: Work A.2 over the next 7 stitches, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan), 2-4-4-6-6-6 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan), A.2 over the next 7 stitches
Half back piece: Work 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased for raglan), 2-2-4-4-6-8 stitches in stocking stitch and finish with A.3a over the last 17 stitches.

REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work yarn overs twisted on each side of A.2 to avoid holes!
Continue pattern like this and increase for raglan, increase differently on front/back piece and sleeves (first increase as explained above), increase stitches on each side of A.2 as follows:
Front/back piece: Increase 1 stitch every other round 18-22-25-29-32-36 times in total (= 2 stitches increase on each front/back piece).
Sleeve: Increase 1 stitch every other round 20-23-26-27-28-30 times in total (= 2 stitches increase on each sleeve).
When A.1a and A.3a have been worked 1 time vertically, work A.1b (= 32 stitches) over A.1a and A.3b (= 32 stitches) over A.3a.
When all increases are done there are 320-352-384-408-432-464 stitches on row. Work until piece measures 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from cast-on edge. Now divide piece for body and sleeves as follows:
Half back piece: Work A.1b (= 32 stitches), work 20-24-29-33-38-44 stitches in stocking stitch.
Right sleeve: Slip the next 56-64-70-74-76-80 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve.
Front piece: Work 20-24-29-33-38-44 stitches in stocking stitch, A.3b (= 32 stitches) (= mid back), A.1b (= 32 stitches), 20-24-29-33-38-44 stitches in stocking stitch.
Left sleeve: Slip the next 56-64-70-74-76-80 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve.
Half back piece: Work 20-24-29-33-38-44 stitches in stocking stitch and finish with A.3b (= 32 stitches).

BODY:
= 224-240-264-280-304-328 stitches.
Work A.3b (= 32 stitches) as before, 17-21-27-31-37-43 stitches in stocking stitch, A.4 (= 14 stitches = mid under sleeve), 17-21-27-31-37-43 stitches in stocking stitch. A.1b and A.3b as before (= 64 stitches in total), 17-21-27-31-37-43 stitches in stocking stitch, A.4 over the next 14 stitches (= mid under sleeve), 17-21-27-31-37-43 stitches in stocking stitch and finish with A.1b (= 32 stitches) as before.
Continue pattern like this.
When piece measures 2 cm from where body was divided from sleeves, increase 1 stitch on each side of every A.4 (= 4 stitches increased) - read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 2 cm 10 times in total = 264-280-304-320-344-368 stitches. When piece measures 22 cm from where body was divided from sleeves, divide front and back piece, to make a vent in each side (= approx. 16 cm).
Divide the piece in the middle of each A.4 (= 132-140-152-160-172-184 stitches on each front/back piece).

BACK PIECE:
Now work back and forth.
Continue with half pattern A.4 (= 7 stitches), stocking stitch, A.1b and A.3b as before until piece measures 36 cm from where body was divided from sleeves, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work GARTER STITCH – read explanation above, for 2 cm (= 16 cm vent). Cast off by knitting. Piece measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm in total from shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:
Work as back piece.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.
Slip the 56-64-70-74-76-80 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and pick up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve = 64-72-80-84-88-92 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve.
Continue with pattern A.2 (on each side of marker thread) and stocking stitch, but decrease A.2 as follows: Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread – read DECREASE TIP (= 2 stitches decreased) on every other round and increase 1 stitch on every other round by making a yarn over after first A.2 and before last A.2 (= 2 stitches increased), i.e. the stitches under sleeve are decreased and the stitches in stocking stitch are increased. Knit the increased stitches twisted on next round, then work them in stocking stitch. When sleeve measures 2 cm from where sleeve was divided for body, do not increase stitches on next round with increase/decrease, i.e. decrease 2 stitches.
Decrease like this every 3-2-1½-1½-1-1 cm 10-13-16-17-18-19 times in total = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches (when A.2 has been decreased in both sides, stitches are no longer increased). When sleeve measures 34-33-31-29-28-26 cm from where sleeve was divided from body, increase 1-2-0-1-2-0 stitches evenly on next round = 45-48-48-51-54-54 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib = knit 1/purl 2. When sleeve measures 39-38-36-34-33-31 cm from where sleeve was divided from body, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.
Work the other sleeve the same way.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on next round work 3 stitches in the yarn over as follows: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, then on next round work these stitches into the pattern (= 3 stitches increased)
= slip 1 stitch on to right needle and slip it twisted back on the left needle and knit it and the next 3 stitches (= 4 stitches) twisted together
= knit 4 together

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 11:51:

Bonjour Martine, le diagramme correspond bien au motif sur la photo. Vérifiez bien votre diagramme et vos mailles, n'hésitez pas à demander conseil auprès de votre magasin en leur apportant ou en leur montrant une photo de votre ouvrage. Ce sera plus facile ainsi de vous aider. Bon tricot!

Maria Jose 05.02.2019 - 12:09:

Buenas, este patron me parece muy bonito, pero las explicaciones no se corresponden, me parece, con él. En primer lugar, el resorte inclinado no lo veo descrito. En segundo lugar, tampoco veo cómo se hace la forma ondulada de la parte final del jersey (en el croquis está además recta). Muchas gracias. Un cordial saludo.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 20:23:

Hola Maria Jose. El patrón es correcto. Se trabaja de arriba abajo. La forma ondulada en la parte inferior del jersey se consigue después de finalizar los diagramas A.1B y A.3B. El dibujo de este patrón solo se presenta en diagramas, no esta duplicado en el texto.

Teresa 09.01.2019 - 12:21:

La descrizione del modello mostra 4 modelli di conteggio. Tuttavia, vedo l'olefina ma i modelli di conteggio A1a, A1b, A3a e A3b. Dove posso trovare gli schemi A2 e A4?

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 14:09:

Buongiorno Teresa. Trova i diagrammi A2 e A4 alla fine delle spiegazioni, di fianco al grafico con le misure. Buon lavoro!

Greet 10.11.2018 - 20:46:

Misschien iets duidelijker vermelden dat het aantal steken oploop voor en na de omslagen. Vb), 1 omslag (= 1 steek gemeerderd voor de raglan), 2-4-4-6-6-6 steken in tricotsteek, 1 omslag (= 1 steek gemeerderd voor de raglan), De steken 2-4-4-6-6-6 worden dus resp. Steeds 1 of 2 meer. . Altijd voor en na het patroon A2.

Klazien Modderman-Bijlsma 06.11.2018 - 11:05:

De patroonbeschrijving vermeld 4 telpatronen. Ik zie echter alkeen maar de telpatronen A1a,A1b, A3a en A3b. Waar kan ik de telpatronen A2 en A4 vinden?
