SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in sections and sewn together to finish. The piece is worked bottom up.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 129-137-145-153-165-177 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Merino Extra Fine. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Now work pattern from the right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH - read description above, work A.1 over the first 8 stitches, A.2 over the next 50-54-58-62-68-74 stitches, A.3 over the next 2 stitches, A.4 over the next 7 stitches (= the middle 7 stitches on the row), A.5 over the next 2 stitches, A.6 over the next 50-54-58-62-68-74 stitches, A.7 over the next 8 stitches and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this. The number of stitches stays the same, but the pattern is displaced. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the diagrams have been completed in height, continue the pattern in the same way, i.e. increase stitches in A.3 and A.5 and decrease stitches in A.1 and A.7. When the piece measures approx. 34-34-35-35-35-35 cm / 13 3/8"-13 3/8"-13 ¾"-13 ¾"-13 ¾"-13 ¾" from the cast-on edge and up the side of the piece – adjust so that you finish after 5 rows after an increase, work the next row from the right side as follows: Work pattern as before over the first 64-68-72-76-82-88 stitches on the row, work 2 stitches in the next stitch (= mid-stitch), work pattern as before over the last 64-68-72-76-82-88 stitches on the row = 130-138-146-154-166-178 stitches. Insert a marker thread in each side of the piece. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Place the first 65-69-73-77-83-89 stitches (seen from the right side) on a thread for left shoulder and work the right shoulder.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
= 65-69-73-77-83-89 stitches. Work 1 row back from the wrong side. Now work pattern as follows from the right side: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch (= towards neck), continue pattern A.6 until there is 1 stitch left and work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. AT THE SAME TIME on the first row from the right side decrease 1 stitch inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the side - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4th row a total of 10-10-11-11-12-12 times and when the piece measures 10-11-11-12-13-14 cm / 3 7/8"-4 ¼"-4 ¼"-4 5/8"-5 1/8"-5 ½" from the marker thread bind off 2-2-2-4-4-4 stitches for the armhole = 53-57-60-62-67-73 stitches left on shoulder. When the piece measures 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm / 6¾''-7''-7½''-8''-8¼''-8¾'' from the marker thread (= 7-7-8-8-8-8 cm / 2 ¾"-2 ¾"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8"-3 1/8" from where you bind off for the armhole) work short rows in pattern as before from the wrong side as follows:
ROW 1 (wrong side): Work until there are 2 stitches left on the row, tighten strand.
ROW 2 (right side): Work back.
ROW 3: Work until there are 4 more stitches left on the row than the previous time (= 6 stitches), tighten strand.

Work 1 ridge over all stitches on row where you decrease 5 stitches evenly on row = 48-52-55-57-62-68 stitches left on shoulder. Bind off. The piece measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' / 23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾''-27½'' from the shoulder down.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 121-129-137-145-157-169 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Merino Extra Fine. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Now work pattern as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work A.2 until there are 2 stitches left on the row, work the first stitch in A.2 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this. When the piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm / 17 1/4''-17 3/4''-18''-18½''-19''-19 1/4'' – adjust to match the front piece where you bind off stitches for the armholes, and bind off 2-2-2-4-4-4 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows for the armholes in each side = 117-125-133-137-149-161 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''. Now work garter stitch over the middle 25-25-27-27-29-29 stitches on the row. When you have worked 2 ridges over these stitches, bind off the middle 21-21-23-23-25-25 stitches for neck and each shoulder is finished separately = 48-52-55-57-62-68 stitches on each shoulder. Continue with texture and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in the side and 2 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck. When the piece measures 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm / 23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8'' / 23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8'' work 1 ridge over all stitches. Bind off.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 45-45-49-49-53-53 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Merino Extra Fine. Purl 1 row from the wrong side.

Continue back and forth like this.
You increase stitches on the middle of sleeve in diagrams A.3 and A.5. When the sleeve measures 7 cm / 2¾'' decrease 1 stitch in each side - remember DECREASE TIP! NOTE: In size XXXL you do not decrease, but continue to work texture and increase stitches as before. Decrease like this every 10th-12th-18th-30th-28th-0 row a total of 10-8-6-4-4-0 times. When the diagrams have been completed in height continue to increase in the middle of the sleeve as before until you have increased a total of 20-20-18-18-18-16 times and there are 65-69-73-77-81-85 stitches on the needle. Then continue with texture until the sleeve measures 40-39-38-37-36-33 cm / 15 ¾"-15 ¼"-14 7/8"-14 ½"-14 1/8"-13". Bind off. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Bonjour , j arrive au denier paragraphe pour l épaule droite .Après le rang 4 (rang raccourci ).Je ne comprend pas la suite,pouvez vous m expliquer ?Merci beaucoup .cordialement.

Mireia 01.03.2019 - 18:09:

Hi Drops Team! I'm a little confused with the diagram from the 7th row. Someone can help me or give me some advice. I'm doing an M size. Thank's a lot

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 07:39:

Dear Mireia, on the 7th row you will incrase in A.3/A.5 (with a yarn over worked twisted on next row) and in A.1/A.7 you will decrease as shown in diagram. On next row work the sts as shown in diagram. Happy knitting!

SAVORNIN Jean 30.01.2019 - 11:33:

Pour la manche, quelle est la longueur proposée pour la taille M: 39 ou 36? Merci de me répondre

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 11:34:

Bonjour! C'est 39 cm. Bon tricot!

SAVORNIN Jean 26.01.2019 - 10:26:

En ce qui concerne le dos, les explications ne sont pas très claires. Je suppose que les diminutions des épaules se font comme celles de devant, sinon pouvez vous m'expliquer? Merci de me répondre.

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 10:19:

Bonjour Mme Savornin, le dos ne se tricote pas comme le devant, on rabat les mailles des emmanchures et on continue simplement comme avant, on rabat les mailles de l'encolure puis on termine chaque épaule séparément. Bon tricot!

Elodie 08.01.2019 - 19:00:

Bonsoir, Tout d’abord merci pour ce modèle il est sublime ! Je le tricote en mélanger cotoneribo + brushed alpaga silk c’est très doux ! J’en suis aux manches et je ne comprends pas pourquoi il faut diminuer (d’ailleurs, de chaque côtés ?) alors que sur le modèle graphique les manches s’élargissent.. ? Merci !

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 08:17:

Bonjour Elodie, dès le début de la manche, on augmente dans A.3 et A.5, mais, pour éviter que la manche ne s'élargisse trop vite, on diminue en même temps de chaque côté. On conserve ainsi le motif du dessus de la manche (A.3 et A.5) mais on diminue en même temps de chaque côté pour contrôler l'élargissement de la manche. Bon tricot!

Schütz 20.12.2018 - 18:29:

Bonjour, quand on arrive au diminution se font elles coté emmanchure ou encolure, merci

DROPS Design 21.12.2018 kl. 07:56:

Bonjour Mme Schütz, les diminutions des épaules se font côté emmanchure, on ne diminue pas pour l'encolure. Bon tricot!

Beatriz 30.11.2018 - 20:27:

Bonjour! J'arrive à l'emmanchure sur le devant et j'ai 2 questions: 1. Après avoir rabattu les mailles de l'emmanchure, est-ce qu'il faut toujours garder 2 mailles lisière? Ou continuer directement avec le point fantaisie. 2. Plus loin, il faut tricoter des "rangs raccourcis", que signifie "serrer le fil"? Merci d'avance!

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 08:03:

Bonjour Beatriz, côté emmanchure on tricote seulement 1 m lis au point mousse, (les 2 m lis sont côté encolure). Après avoir rabattu les mailles de l'emmanchure, on continue avec 1 m lis au point mousse. Cette vidéo montre la méthode de base pour tricoter les rangs raccourcis et donc, comment serrer le fil au début du rang suivant. Bon tricot!

Anna 23.10.2018 - 19:53:

Hi there, Can I use the DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk yarn for this sweater? Also do you recommend blocking using this material? Thanks! Anna

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 08:00:

Hi Anna, If you use a different garn to the one suggested, it is important to do a trial piece with the new yarn to get the right knitting tension and then adjust the number of stitches in the pattern. Happy knitting!

Drops Design 19.10.2018 - 08:56:

Für Karin und Stefanie über die Schulterschrägung. Die Linie wurde weg, um Misveständnis zu vermeiden. Ohne die verkürzten Reihen wurden die Schulter etwas schräg, wegen Strickrichtung/Verschiebung. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
