Pattern instructions

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 on the round, 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 and 12th 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 marker thread as follows: Start 2 stitches before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, work 4 stitches (marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. 

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves):
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.
SIZE 12/18 MONTHS (2-5/6-7/8) YEARS: place 1 marker between 2 stitches mid-front (after 33 (36-42-42) stitches).
SIZE (3/4-9/10-11/12) YEARS: place 1 marker in the stitch mid-front (in stitch 39-46-46)
Knit until there are 8 (8-8-10-10-12-12) stitches left before the marker, turn, tighten strand and purl until there are 8 (8-8-10-10-12-12) stitches left on the other side, turn, tighten strand and knit until there are 16 (16-16-18-18-20-20) stitches left, turn, tighten strand and purl until there are 16 (16-16-18-18-20-20) stitches left on other side. Continue by working 8 stitches less each time you turn, 2 more times in each side, turn, tighten 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. A yoke is worked first, then divided for body and sleeves. The round starts approx. mid back. Body is worked in the round with circular needle. Sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

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

YOKE:
Change to double pointed needles/short circular needle size 4 mm.
Knit 1 round and 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 is slightly higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck will then be the same front and back – work ELEVATION – read description above or continue working.
Work pattern 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 this pattern 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 red.
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 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 stitches on the needle, 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 stitches on the needle 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 of the sleeves (= 57 (61-67-71-75-80-83) stitches between marker threads on the 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 this 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 evenly on the next round = 136 (144-156-164-172-180-188) stitches.
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 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 these 8 stitches (= mid under sleeve). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Work stocking stitch in the round with red. When the sleeve measures 1 cm from where body and sleeve 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 10 (12-17-20-24-27-31) cm from where body and sleeve were divided, 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 8 cm or to desired length.
On the next round increase all purl 2 to purl 3 = 45 (50-50-55-55-60-60) stitches. 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 body and sleeve were divided.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

NOSES:
Crochet with red and hook size 3 mm as follows: Work 4 chain stitches and 1 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, cut and fasten the strand. Work 1 nose for each reindeer (= 11 (12-11-12-12-13-13) noses). Tie the noses to each reindeer and fasten the strands.

Hola, os hice una pregunta y no he tenido respuesta, sigo a la espera, gracias

DROPS Design 19.12.2018 kl. 22:39:

Hola Nati, Sin ver la labor no podemos ver donde está el fallo. Seguramente es la tensión del tejido, que no era igual a la recomendada en el patrón. ¿Has hecho una muestra? ¿Has estado tomando medidas durante el trabajo? Al ser así y trabajando de arriba abajo, es bastante más fácil ajustar para la talla deseada.

Nati 11.12.2018 - 23:46:

Hola, qué hice mal que me salió pequeño a pesar de seguir al pie de la letra el patrón, gracias anticipadas

Hola, hice el jersey siguiendo al pie de la letra el patrón y me ha quedado pequeño, una pena, lo quería para Navidad

Retkesné Edit 22.11.2018 - 09:09:

Jó napot kívánok! Segítséget szeretnék kérni! A vállrész leírása szerint a diagram szerinti minta lekötése után lustakötésre és piros fonalra váltunk. Ugyanakkor a képen nekem úgy tűnik, hogy a pulóver teste harisnyakötéssel készült. Tudnának nekem ebben felvilágosítást adni? Hálásan köszönöm, további szép napot kívánok! Edit.

DROPS Design 25.11.2018 kl. 10:55:

Kedves Edit! Köszönjük levelét. Igaza van, a pulóver teste piros színnel és harisnyakötéssel folytatódik. Javítottuk a hibát a fordításban, és a kellemetlenségért elnézést kérünk. Sikeres kézimunkázást!

Nathalie 04.11.2018 - 19:27:

J'ai fait l'empiecement, pour un pull en 7/8ans. Je me retrouve avec beaucoup plus de mailles qu'indiquées. 240au lieu de 228. J'ai vérifié si je ne m'étais pas trompée, mais il semble que non... Pourriez vous éclairer ma lanterne...?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 09:54:

Bonjour Nathalie, en taille 7/8 ans, vous devez bien avoir 240 m - c'est en taille 5/6 ans que vous auriez eu 228 m. Bon tricot!

Anja 22.10.2018 - 23:13:

Der Pulli ist zuckersüß - Tausend Dank für diese Anleitung ;)

Marina Grigoryeva 20.09.2018 - 13:29:

Eine Frage zu Erhöhung. Das „noch weitere 2 x an beiden Seiten stricken,“ lese ich als insgesamt 4 weitere Reihen, 2 Reihen mit 24 Maschen bis Markierer und dann noch 2 mit 32 Maschen bis Markierer. Allerdings bedeutet das bei der vierte Reihe nur 1 Masche stricken und es wird wieder gewendet. Habe ich den Satz richtig verstanden, oder waren insgesamt nur 2 Reihen damit gemeint? Viele Grüße Marina

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 13:34:

Liebe Frau Grigoryeva, ja genau, es werden noch 4 Reihen mehr gestrickt: 1 Hinreihe bis 24 M (in der 1. - 3. Größe) bleiben, wenden und die Rückreihe bis 24 M bleiben, dann noch 1 Hinreihe bis 32 M bleiben, wenden, 1 Rückreihe bis 32 M bleiben, wenden und die nächste Reihe bis zur hinteren Mitte rechts (= Hinreihe) stricken. Jetzt stricken Sie die Passe in der Runde. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mariarosaria 20.09.2018 - 10:32:

Buongiorno volevo chiedervi se tutto il maglione bisogna farlo con i ferri circolari corti O ad un certo punto bisogna usare i ferri circolari normali. Complimenti e grazie.

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 10:46:

Buongiorno Mariarosaria. Può passare ai ferri circolari lunghi quando ci sono troppe maglie per quelli corti. Buon lavoro!
