EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP:
To work out when to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 72 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 6) = 12. In this example, decrease by working together each 11th and12th stitch, or increase after each 12th stitch by making 1 yarn over (the yarn overs are worked twisted on the next row to avoid holes).

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Increase like this by both marker threads (4 stitches increased). On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. 

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

ELEVATION (back of neck):
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation. Insert 1 marker approx. mid front (i.e. after 33 (36-38-42-42-46-46) stitches).
Knit until there are 8 (8-8-10-10-12-12) stitches left before the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl until there are 8 (8-8-10-10-12-12) stitches left on the other side, turn, tighten the strand and knit until there are 16 (16-16-18-18-20-20) stitches left, turn, tighten the strand and purl until there are 16 (16-16-18-18-20-20) stitches left on the other side. Continue by working 8 fewer stitches each time you turn 2 more times in each side, turn, tighten the strand and knit to mid back.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, top down. You work the yoke first which is then divided into sleeves and body. The round starts approx. mid back. The body is worked in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

NECK:
Cast on 72 (76-80-84-88-96-100) stitches with double pointed needles/short circular needle size 3 mm and mustard (in the 2 smallest sizes, you need to cast on with double pointed needles until you have enough stitches, the other sizes can be cast on and worked with short circular needle).
Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). Continue this rib for 3 cm.

YOKE:
Change to double pointed needles/circular needle size 4 mm.
Knit 1 round where you decrease 6 (4-3-0-4-5-9) stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 66 (72-77-84-84-91-91) stitches.
You can now work an elevation in back of neck so that the yoke in slightly higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck is then the same front and back – work ELEVATION – read description above, or just continue.
Work pattern according to A.1 - NOTE: Choose diagram for your size (= 11 (12-11-12-12-13-13) repeats of 6 (6-7-7-7-7-7) stitches). Continue and increase as shown in diagram.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed there are 176 (192-209-228-240-260-260) stitches on the needle.
Continue with stocking stitch and mustard. On the next round increase 7 (7-10-7-3-0-11) stitches evenly on round = 183 (199-219-235-243-260-271) stitches.
When the piece measures 13 (14-15-16-17-18-19) cm mid front (measured without the neck), divide the piece as follows: Work 25 (27-30-32-34-36-38) stitches, place the next 42 (46-50-54-54-58-60) stitches on 1 thread for sleeve (without working them), cast on 8 new stitches, work 49 (53-59-63-67-72-75) stitches, place the next 42 (46-50-54-54-58-60) stitches on 1 thread for sleeve (without working them), cast on 8 new stitches and work the remaining 25 (27-30-32-34-36-38) stitches as before = 115 (123-135-143-151-160-167) stitches. 

BODY:
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8 stitches cast on under each sleeve (= 57 (61-67-71-75-80-83) stitches between marker threads on front piece). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! When the piece measures 3 cm from where body and sleeves were divided, increase on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP. Repeat the increase when the piece measures 6 and 9 cm from where body and sleeves were divided = 127 (135-147-155-163-172-179) stitches. When the piece measures 11 (13-16-19-22-25-28) cm from where body and sleeves were divided, increase 9 (9-9-9-9-8-9) stitches on next round = 136 (144-156-164-172-180-188) stitches.
Change to circular needle size 3.
Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The whole jumper measures approx. 34 (37-41-45-49-53-57) cm, measured from the shoulder. 

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the one thread on double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50 (54-58-62-62-66-68) stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8 stitches (= mid under sleeve). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Work stocking stitch in the round with mustard. When the sleeve measures 1 cm from where sleeve and body were divided, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP.
Decrease like this every 1½ (2-2-2½-3-3½-3½) cm a total of 6 (6-8-8-8-8-9) times = 38 (42-42-46-46-50-50) stitches. When the sleeve measures 14 (16-21-24-28-31-35) cm from where it was divided from the body, decrease 2 stitches evenly on round = 36 (40-40-44-44-48-48) stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm or to desired length.
Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures a total of approx.18 (20-25-28-32-35-39) cm from where it was divided from the body.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

He montado los 76 puntos para la talla 2 que es la talla que necesita mi hija y hay manera humana de que eso le entre por la cabeza y eso que ella es de cabeza pequeña, están ustedes seguros que esas medidas se corresponden con la talla?

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 15:11:

Hola Margarita. Este modelo tiene el cuello muy estrecho, por eso la vuelta de montaje tiene que quedar bastante elástica. Comprueba que la tensión de la muestra es igual a la del patrón. Para tener un borde más elástico puedes montar los puntos con un número de aguja más grande y después trabajar según el patrón.

Amanda Hellberg 30.12.2018 - 16:55:

Jag får inte mönstret till att stämma- enligt diagrammet ökar man ju nästan inga maskor alls precis efter den resårstickade kragen, och min stickning just nu ser snarare ut som en ärm, inte som en tröja där mitt barn ska få plats med axlarna? Har dubbelkollat men kan inte se att jag gjort fel?

Anne Holm Martinussen 29.12.2018 - 19:51:

Findes denne opskrift i voksenstørrelse?

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 09:35:

Hei Anne. Denne modellen finnes ikke til voksen dessverre. Om du vil se på modeller med lignende bærestykke kan du feks se på 196-15, 197-10 eller 183-20. God fornøyelse

Jeanett Ljostveit 06.12.2018 - 10:24:

Hei! For en utrolig flott genser :)\\r\\nHar ett lite spørsmål: Hvilke type garn vil dere anbefale å bruke dersom man ikke bruker noen form for ull? Kunne tenke meg å teste ut denne oppskriften men er veganer så bruker ikke materiale som kommer fra dyr. Kanskje det finnes noe bambus- eller bomullsgarn som gjør samme nytten? \\r\\nTakk på forhånd! :)

Norma Deckers 06.11.2018 - 15:26:

Ik wil mijn vraag annuleren. Ik ben er al uit.

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 15:07:

Dag Norma,

Fijn dat je eruit gekomen bent en bedankt voor de terugkoppeling. Veel breiplezier!

Norma Deckers 06.11.2018 - 13:18:

Ik begrijp iets niet. Hoe kan ik me aan het patroon houden als ik steeds moet meerderen. Ik heb nu 4 witte steken ipv 3, waardoor het patroon niet gevolgd kan worden. Ik brei met blauw en wit. ik moet 1 steek wit en drie steken blauw breien. boven 3 steken wit en 1 steek blauw. Door die meerdering moet ik nu 2 steken wit en 3 stekenblauw breien, waardoor het patroon er niet meer goed uitziet. Dank u voor uw antwoord.

Mariarosaria 22.10.2018 - 19:25:

Il gettato ne colore di sfondo per lo sprone non capisco è senape o panna ? Grazie

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 21:07:

Buonasera Mariarosaria. Se il simbolo del gettato è vicino a un quadrato vuoto, lavora il gettato con il colore panna; se è vicino ad un quadrato con il tondo nero, lavora il gettato con il senape. Nel diagramma A.1 per le taglie più grandi, il gettato alla fine della riga 13 è colore panna. Buon lavoro!

Mathian 14.10.2018 - 09:34:

Bonjour, Qu'est-ce qu'une rehausse ?

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 09:41:

Bonjour Mme Mathian, une réhausse permet de surélever l'encolure dos: on va tricoter des rangs raccourcis dans le dos pour avoir plus de rangs sur le dos et moins sur le devant, l'encolure dos sera ainsi plus haute que l'encolure devant. Vous trouverez ici une vidéo montrant comment faire. Bon tricot!

Myriam 05.10.2018 - 10:06:

Mevrouw ik begrijp de uitleg over de verhoging van de hals niet zo goed.\\r\\nMoet ik voor maat 9/10 draaien na 12 20 28 36 en 44 steken?

Janne 16.09.2018 - 21:01:

Det er en rigtig flot bluse gode farver.
