Pattern instructions

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

STRIPES:
The piece is worked in stripes, with different stripes on yoke and body/sleeves. Do not cut the strand after each stripe - allow it to follow your work onwards.
Stripes on yoke:
Work * 4 rounds with goldenrod, 2 rounds with light grey *, work from *-* until the yoke is finished. Adjust so that you finish with 4 rounds of goldenrod (in other words you may need to divide the piece for body and sleeves and continue the yoke-stripes until you have worked 4 rounds with goldenrod).
Then continue with stripes on body and sleeves as follows:
Work * 4 rounds with light grey, 2 rounds with goldenrod *, work from *-* until body/sleeves are finished.

INCREASE TIP-1 (for raglan):
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 2 (the marker sits between these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased). Increase like this at all marker threads (= a total of 8 stitches increased). The yarn overs are worked twisted on the next round to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 128 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 30) = 4.3. In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the 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.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, top down.
The yoke is worked first, starting mid back and then divided for body and sleeves. The body is continued in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 76-80-84-88-92-96 stitches with double pointed needles/short circular needle size 3 mm and goldenrod (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).
The piece is worked in STRIPES – read description above. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). When you have worked 4 rounds change to double pointed needles/short circular needle size 4 mm. Now continue with stocking stitch and insert 4 marker threads for raglan on the next round as follows:
Work 13-13-13-13-17-17 stitches, insert 1 marker, work 12 stitches AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 4 stitches evenly over these stitches, insert 1 marker, work 24-28-30-32-32-36 stitches, insert 1 marker, work 12 stitches AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 4 stitches evenly over these stitches, insert 1 marker and work 15-15-17-19-19-19 stitches = 84-88-92-96-100-104 stitches.
Knit 1 round. On the next round start to increase to raglan. Increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker – read INCREASE TIP-1, every 2nd round a total of 15-16-17-18-19-20 times = 204-216-228-240-252-264 stitches.
Continue with stocking stitch and stripes as before until the piece measures 13-14-15-16-17-18 cm from the cast-on edge. On the next round divide the piece for body and sleeves as follows:


Work 28-30-31-32-36-38 stitches in stocking stitch, place the next 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 6 stitches under the sleeve, 58-62-66-70-74-78 stitches in stocking stitch, place the next 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6 stitches under the sleeve and finish with 30-32-35-38-38-40 stitches in stocking stitch = 128-136-144-152-160-168 stitches.

BODY:
Continue working in stocking stitch and stripes. When the piece measures 15-17-20-23-26-29 cm from where body and sleeves were divided, increase 30-34-34-38-42-42 stitches evenly on next round – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 158-170-178-190-202-210 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). Cast off with knit when the piece measures 17-19-22-25-28-31 cm from where body and sleeves were divided; make sure the cast-off edge is not tight - you can use a size larger needle if this is a problem when casting off. The jumper measures approx. 33-36-40-44-48-52 cm, measured from shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches from the thread on the one side of the body on double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50-52-54-56-58-60 stitches. Continue with stripes as on the body, in stocking stitch and in the round. Insert 1 marker thread mid under sleeve. When the sleeve measures 2 cm from where body and sleeve were divided, decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread (= 2 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-4-5-5-7-6 cm a total of 5-6-5-6-5-6 times = 40-40-44-44-48-48 stitches. When the piece measures 19-23-27-31-35-38 cm from where body and sleeve were divided, change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work rib over all stitches (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit. The sleeve measures a total of approx. 23-27-31-35-39-42 cm from where body and sleeve were divided. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hallo, bezieht sich die Maschenprobe auf die Nadeln der Stärke 3 oder 4? Mit 4 bin ich zu gross in der Maschenprobe. Muss ich dann beide Nadeln eine Nummer kleiner nehmen? Danke und Grüsse

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 09:08:

Liebe Melanie H, die Maschenprobe wird mit den größeren Nadeln gestrickt, dh für das glatt rechts Teil im Pullover. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Merci de votre réponse. Je suis à 14 cm sur les indications initiales, auriez-vous un conseil pour me permettre de corriger l‘erreur discrètement sans devoir tout reprendre, svp ? Grand merci, bonne journée.

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 11:20:

Bonjour Manoa, je ne suis pas certaine de pouvoir vous aider, à titre personnel, je reprendrai au début pour être certaine du résultat. N'hésitez pas à demander à votre magasin, on pourra peut être vous suggérer une idée. Bon tricot!

Manoa 21.11.2018 - 14:24:

Bonjour,je comprends que pour le dos/devant, ce sera le même nombre de mailles (66 en 5-6ans). Alors je ne comprends pas pourquoi pour les premières augmentations 1- en raglan (jusqu’a 15cm), on n’a pas le même nombre de mailles entre le devant et le dos (66/50/62/50 pour atteindre 228 mailles). Pouvez-vous m’aider, svp? Merci à vous, bonne Journée. Manoa

DROPS Design 22.11.2018 kl. 08:49:

Bonjour Manoa, le nombre de mailles va être corrigé dans cette taille, on doit avoir dès le début 30 m pour le devant et donc 17 m pour le demi-dos en fin de rang. Merci pour votre retour. Bon tricot!

Fabienne Jaulin 10.11.2018 - 22:27:

Bonjour, J'adore ce modèle. Avez-vous une version au point de riz? Merci!

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 09:37:

Bonjour Mme Jaulin, seule une version jersey rayée existe pour ce modèle. Bon tricot!

Fabienne Jaulin 30.10.2018 - 14:57:

Bonjour, Je voudrais faire ce pull pour mon fils mais j'ai dû tricoter l'échantillon avec des aiguilles de 3,5 au lieu de 4 pour avoir le bon nombre de mailles. Puis-je quand même utiliser des aiguilles de 3 pour les côtes? Il est très difficile de trouver des aiguilles de 2,5 près de chez moi... Merci!

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 15:40:

Bonjour Fabienne! Bien sur que tu peux utiliser des aiguilles de 3 pour les côtes. Bon tricot!
