EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

ELEVATION (back of neck):
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation; the neck will then be the same front and back.
Insert 1 marker in the first stitch at the beginning of the round (= mid back). Start from the right side with light grey and knit 12-13-14-14-15-16 stitches past the stitch with marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 25-27-29-29-31-33 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 37-40-43-43-46-49 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 49-53-57-57-61-65 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 61-66-71-71-76-81 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 73-79-85-85-91-97 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit to mid back. Then work YOKE as described in the text.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2 (A.2 applies only to sizes 2 and 3/4 years). Choose diagram for your size. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

KNITTING TIP (for Nordic pattern):
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 larger needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 81 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 21) = 3.9. 
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. 

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

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

NECK:
Cast on 81-84-87-90-93-96 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and wine red. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for approx. 2-2½ cm. Knit 1 round where you increase 21-24-27-30-33-36 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 102-108-114-120-126-132 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm.
You can now work an elevation in the back of the neck so that the yoke is 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 go straight to YOKE.

YOKE:
Read KNITTING TIP! Work A.1 in the round (= 17-18-19-20-21-22 repeats of 6 stitches).
AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in A.1 increase evenly spaced as described below. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION and INCREASE TIP-1.
Arrow-1: Increase 10-12-14-16-18-20 stitches evenly on round = 112-120-128-136-144-152 stitches (there is now room for 14-15-16-17-18-19 repeats of 8 stitches).
Arrow-2: Increase 24-32-32-40-32-40 stitches evenly on round = 136-152-160-176-176-192 stitches (there is now room for 17-19-20-22-22-24 repeats of 8 stitches – NOTE: Make sure you work the increases between arrow-2 and arrow-3 as shown in the diagram).
Arrow-3: There are now 170-190-200-220-220-240 stitches on the needle. Increase 22-18-24-20-32-30 stitches evenly on this round = 192-208-224-240-252-270 stitches (there is now room for 12-13-14-15-14-15 repeats of 16-16-16-16-18-18 stitches).
Arrow-4: Increase 18-26-16-6-6-6 stitches evenly on round = 210-234-240-246-258-276 stitches.
When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm from the cast-on edge and down mid front. If the piece is shorter than this you can work stocking stitch with light grey to the right length.
The next round is worked as follows with light grey: Knit 32-35-37-38-40-43 stitches (= ½ back piece), place the next 42-48-47-48-50-53 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-6 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 63-69-73-75-79-85 stitches (= front piece), place the next 42-48-47-48-50-53 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-6 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), and knit the remaining 31-34-36-37-39-42 stitches (= ½ back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 138-150-158-166-174-182 stitches. Then work as follows:

SIZES 2 and 3/4 years:
Knit 1 round with light grey. Then work A.2 in the round (= 23-25 repeats of 6 stitches). Continue this pattern. When A.2 has been completed, work stocking stitch with light grey until the piece measures 17-20 cm from the division. Then work RIB as described below.

SIZES 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 years:
Work stocking stitch in the round with light grey until the piece measures 23-26-29-32 cm from the division. Then work RIB as described below.

RIB:
Knit 1 round where you increase 30-33-34-35-39-43 stitches evenly on round – remember INCREASE TIP-1 = 168-183-192-201-213-225 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 1 / 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. The jumper measures approx. 38-42-46-50-54-58 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 42-48-47-48-50-53 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-6-8-8-6 stitches cast on under the sleeves = 48-54-53-56-58-59 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-6 stitches under the sleeve and allow it to follow your work onwards. The marker thread will be used a little later when decreasing under the sleeve.

SIZES 2 and 3/4 years:
Start the round at the marker thread and knit 1 round with light grey. Then work A.2 in the round (= 8-9 repeats of 6 stitches). When A.2 has been completed continue with light grey as described under ALL SIZES.

SIZES 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 years:
Start the round at the marker thread and work stocking stitch in the round with light grey. Continue as described under ALL SIZES.

ALL SIZES:
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 2-2-2-3-3-3 cm decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease like this every 3-2½-3½-4-4-4½ cm a total of 6-8-7-7-8-8 times = 36-38-39-42-42-43 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 19-22-26-31-35-38 cm from the division. Knit 1 round where you increase 0-1-3-3-6-5 stitches evenly on round = 36-39-42-45-48-48 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight. The sleeve measures approx. 23-26-30-35-39-42 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hej, skulle vilja ha hjälp med att öka mönstret till 13 år. Stickat en Stl M och vill nu sticka till barnbarnet.

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 14:22:

Hej, tyvärr har vi inte kapacitet till detta. Du får god hjälp ifall du frågar hos närmaste DROPS-återförsäljare.

A.Noordsij 20.02.2019 - 13:45:

Ben eruit, had geen erg in de minderingen op de tekening, vind het nogal verwarrend, sorry. Vriendelijke groeten A Noordsij

A. Noordsij.v.d. Ende 20.02.2019 - 10:21:

Goede morgen, heb net een vraag gesteld, maar nu staat hij bij de opmerkingen, krijg ik nu wel antwoord?

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 10:54:

Dag A. Noordsij.v.d. Ende,

Het is inderdaad het handigst om je vragen bij de vragen te zetten en niet bij de opmerkingen. Maar ik zie dat je er ook al uit bent. Veel breiplezier!

A.Noordsij - V.d. Ende 20.02.2019 - 09:48:

Goede morgen, Onze dochter vroeg mij dit patroon (32-12 Children) te breien voor onze kleinzoon, nu zit ik vast bij pijltje 3 In pijl 2 word gemeld dat ik 176 steken op de naald heb en bij pijl 3 moeten er 220 steken op de naald staan hoe kom ik daar aan? Vriendelijke groeten Ada Noordsij

Renate Bastiansen 09.02.2019 - 15:24:

A 1 i str 2-3/4 er det 5 på diagrammet i de andre str er det bare 3. Skal det være slik?

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 12:07:

Hei Renate. Jeg skjønner ikke spørsmålet ditt, hva er det er 5 og 3 på i diagrammene? Det økes 4 ganger i alle størrelser, og alle diagrammene går over 6 masker på starten

Marijke 16.01.2019 - 20:41:

Ik had dit patroon bij Favorieten staan....maar nu is de hele pagina (plus knop) van de Favorieten, en dus al mijn favorieten verdwenen.... wat is er aan de hand????

Nina Leknes 24.10.2018 - 21:51:

Jeg strikker str 5/6 år og når jeg har fulgt alle økningene har jeg 250 masker. Hva kan jeg ha feilet på ?

DROPS Design 06.11.2018 kl. 10:13:

Hei Nina. Vi har nå gått gjennom alle økinger på bærestykket og får 240 masker i størrelse 5/6 år. Før økingene begynner har du altså 114 masker på pinnen. Ved 1. pil i diagrammet økes 14 masker jevnt fordelt = 128 masker. Ved pil 2 økes 32 masker jevnt fordelt = 160 masker på pinnen. Du har nå nok masker til at du strikkes 20 rapporter av A.1. I tillegg økes det 2 masker per rapport av A.1 mellom pil 2 og 3 = totalt 200 masker på pinnen. Ved pil 3 økes det 24 masker = 224 masker på pinnen. Ved pil 4 økes det 16 masker = 240 masker på pinnen og alle økinger er ferdig. God fornøyelse.

Stina Robell 09.09.2018 - 21:18:

Jag kan inte se diagrammet över mönstret på min dator. Bara ????

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 11:51:

Hei Stina. Vi har for øyeblikket tekniske problemer med siden vår, dette medfører at diagrammer og bilder dessverre ikke lastes ordentlig. Vi jobber med å løse problemet, og siden vil være tilbake som normalt så snart som mulig. Du kan følge med på vår twitter eller facebookside for oppdateringer. Beklager dette
