EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide these stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 12) = 7.66. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 7th and 8th stitch (approx.). On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker, 1 yarn over, work 4 stitches in garter stitch (the marker sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over. Increase like this at both marker threads (= a total of 4 stitches increased). On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in garter stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked top down. The yoke is worked in the round and then is divided for body and sleeves. The body is continued in the round in garter stitch. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles in stockinette stitch from the wrong side.

YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-106-110-118 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Kid-Silk. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6.
Knit 1 round and increase 12-8-8-14-10-10 stitches evenly on round - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 104-104-108-120-120-128 stitches. Purl 1 round.
Then work as follows (the round starts mid back):
Work 8-8-9-12-12-14 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 16 stitches), 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 16 stitches, 16-16-18-24-24-28 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 16 stitches, 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 16 stitches and finish with 8-8-9-12-12-14 stitches in garter stitch.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height there are 128-128-132-144-144-152 stitches on the needle. Now work A.2 (= 22 stitches) over A.1 AT THE SAME TIME as you increase to raglan on the first round in A.2 as follows: Increase with 1 yarn over on each side of each A.2 (= 8 stitches increased). The yarn overs are worked twisted on the next round and then in garter stitch.
Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 10-13-17-18-20-22 times, then every 4th round a total of 13-14-13-14-15-16 times (i.e. you increase a total of 23-27-30-32-35-38 times) = 312-344-372-400-424-456 stitches.
Continue with pattern and garter stitch until the piece measures 22-24-25-27-29-31 cm / 8 5/8"-9 3/8"-9 ¾"-10 5/8"-11 3/8"-12 1/8" from the cast-on edge.
On the next round decrease 3 stitches over each cable (i.e. 6 stitches in each A.2 = a total of 24 stitches decreased) = 288-320-348-376-400-432 stitches.
Now divide the piece for body and sleeves as follows: Work 42-46-50-55-60-66 stitches in garter stitch, place the next 60-68-74-78-80-84 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve, work 84-92-100-110-120-132 stitches in garter stitch, place the next 60-68-74-78-80-84 stitches on a thread for sleeve and cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve and finish with 42-46-50-55-60-66 stitches in garter stitch = 184-200-220-240-264-288 stitches.

BODY:
Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches under each sleeve (= 92-100-110-120-132-144 stitches on both front and back pieces). Continue with garter stitch. When the body measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from where it was divided from the sleeves, increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker - read INCREASE TIP-2 above.
Increase like this every 2½ cm a total of 10 times = 224-240-260-280-304-328 stitches. Continue with garter stitch until the body measures 31-31-32-32-32-32 cm / 12 1/8"-12 1/8"-12 ½"-12 ½"-12 ½"-12 ½" from where it was divided from the sleeves. Bind off. The piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Place the 60-68-74-78-80-84 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece onto double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 68-76-84-88-92-96 stitches. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve. Continue with knit in the round from the wrong side, i.e. the piece is turned and you work from the wrong side to finished length (the sleeves are this way shown as purl from the right side).
When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker – read DECREASE TIP above. Decrease like this every 3-2-1½-1½-1½-1 cm a total of 12-15-18-19-20-21 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. Continue with knit from the wrong side until the piece measures 40-38-38-36-35-33 cm / 15 ¾"-14 7/8"-14 7/8"-14 1/8"-13 ¾"-13". Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work garter stitch in the round for 3 cm / 1''. Bind off with 2 strands. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Bonjour, puis-je faire se modèle en sky. merci

DROPS Design 24.04.2019 kl. 08:26:

Bonjour Mme Lelarge, si la tension en Kid-Silk est assez similaire à celle de Sky, la texture de l'ouvrage terminée sera relativement différente si vous obtenez le même échantillon, elle sera plus dense et moins aérienne, car Kid-silk est ici tricotée très souplement, alors que Sky sera tricotée "normalement". Votre magasin DROPS saura vous conseiller, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Lauraine 15.02.2019 - 21:21:

J'aime beaucoup vos modèles récents mais plusieurs chandails sont tricotés " top down" et je ne connais pas cette manière. Peut-on prendre le même modèle et le tricoter de façon standard du bas en haut en commençant par les instructions de la fin et en changeant les augmentations par des diminutions ? Merci de me dire.

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Lauraine, tricoter un modèle de haut en bas permet de pouvoir ajuster la longueur en la personnalisant si besoin. Pour refaire ce modèle de bas en haut, il vous faudra effectivement tout recalculer en commençant par la fin pour terminer par le début. Bon tricot!

Tiziana 01.02.2019 - 08:24:

Il modello è lavorato con un solo capo di filato? Perché il kid silk è molto sottile, e mi sembra strano che si possa lavorare con i ferri del 4. Grazie mille per la risposta

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 09:03:

Buongiorno Tiziana. Il capo è lavorato con un solo capo di Kid Silk. Buon lavoro!

Susanne Schultchen 22.01.2019 - 19:20:

Hallo! Ich wüßte gerne, was damit genau gemeint ist, bzw. wo genau ich abnehmen soll: In der nächsten Runde 3 Maschen über jedem Zopf abnehmen (d.h. 6 Maschen in jedem A.2 = insgesamt 24 Maschen abgenommen) = 288-320-348-376-400-432 Maschen. Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 09:19:

Liebe Frau Schultchen, man braucht mehr Maschen für die Zöpfen, um die richtige Breite zu behalten, wird man 3 Maschen über jedem Zopf abnehmen = 6 Maschen in jedem Zopf x 4 Zöpfe = es sind 24 Abnahme. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Miten teille voi lähettää kysymyksiä? Tämä ohjelma ei hyväksy laatimaan kysymystä.

Mary Barakat 03.01.2019 - 21:16:

Only from 125 to 200 g to make this pull??? I think at least 400g

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 12:16:

Dear Mrs Barakat, if your tension is correct, you should require 125 to 200 g DROPS Kid-Silk to knit this jumper - 1 ball Kid-Silk = 25 g / approx. 210 m - see shadecard. Happy Knitting!

Hanne 07.12.2018 - 01:12:

Hei! Er det feil i oppskriften på cm lengde på ermene? Nå står det at full ermlengde er 40 cm for str s og 33 cm i str xxxl. Hanne

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 07:48:

Hei Hanne. Ja, det stemmer at de større størrelsene har kortere ermer fordi de har videre skulder og ermkuppel. Så den totale ermlengden vil være lenger i de større størrelsene. Det er selvfølgelig ikke noe i veien for at du tilpasser ermlengden selv, om du måtte ønske det. God fornøyelse.

Trine 27.11.2018 - 15:37:

Hvordan skal det felles under ermene? Skal det strikkes to m sammen, eller felle helt av 3 masker over hver flette..?

DROPS Design 28.11.2018 kl. 09:33:

Hei Trine. Når du feller over flettene når raglanen er ferdig kan du strikke 2 og 2 masker rett sammen. God fornøyelse

Marylène 12.10.2018 - 10:42:

Bonjour, Peut-on tricoter ce modèle avec des aiguilles classiques. Je ne sais pas et ne peux pas tricoter avec des aiguilles circulaires : il me faut mes aiguilles sous le bras. Bravo et MERCI pour tous vos modèles et leurs explications

DROPS Design 12.10.2018 kl. 11:16:

Bonjour Marylène, pour tricoter ce modèle sur des aiguilles droites, il vous faudra l'adapter entièrement - vous trouverez ici> quelques informations complémentaires. Votre magasin DROPS saura vous aider et vous conseiller, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Marie-Noëlle ABELLARD 08.10.2018 - 19:38:

Pouvez vous m'indiquer le nombre de pelotes, en qualité DROPS Kid-Silk , qu'il me faut pour tricoter un pull taille 40 en côtes anglaises. Si vous avez un modèle je suis preneuse. Merci

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 20:07:

Madame Abellard, je vous ai recherche quelques modeles ou on utilise les côtes anglaises et la laine Kid Silk comme l'inspiration, verrez ici: https://www.garnstudio.com/search.php?action=search&w=&mt=1&c=1&k=7&y=86&yg=0&lang=fr. Bon tricot!
