EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 8.2. In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch; on the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

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

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
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).

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, from mid back and top down. When you have worked as far as the armholes, the piece is divided - the body is continued in the round with circular needle and the sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 82-84-88-92-96-102 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm = US 7 and Big Merino. Knit 1 round. On the next round work rib as follows: * Knit 1 /purl 1 *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue this rib for 2-3-2-3-2-3 cm = 3/4”-1 1/8”-3/4”-1 1/8”-3/4”-1 1/8”.
Change to circular needle size 5 mm = US 8. Then work as follows:
Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. On the last round of the ridges increase 10-13-14-18-22-23 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 92-97-102-110-118-125 stitches.
Work rib as follows: * Knit 1 /purl 1 *, work from *-* to end of round. Work this rib for 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-2”-2”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”.
On the next round work A.1 over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round of A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 132-142-152-168-180-190 stitches.
Work rib as before for 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-2”-2”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”, then work A.1, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 172-187-202-226-242-255 stitches. NOTE! Finish the 4th round in A.1 with knit 0-1-0-0-0-1 stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Work rib as before for 4-4-5-5-6-6 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-2”-2”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”, then work A.1, on the first round in A.1 increase 40-45-50-58-62-65 stitches evenly on round = 212-232-252-284-304-320 stitches. The piece measures approx. 21-22-24-25-27-28 cm = 8 1/4”-8 3/4”-9 1/2”-9 3/4”-10 5/8”-11” from the cast-on edge.

The next round is worked as follows: Knit the first 31-34-37-41-45-49 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 62-68-74-82-90-98 stitches (= front piece), place the next 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 31-34-37-41-45-49 stitches (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately.
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 136-148-164-180-200-220 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches cast on under the sleeve. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 3 cm = 1 1/8” from the division, increase 2 stitches on each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 8-6½-5-4½-4½-4½ cm = 3 1/8”-2 1/2”-2”-1 3/4”-1 3/4”-1 3/4” a total of 5-6-7-8-8-8 times = 156-172-192-212-232-252 stitches. When the piece measures 37-38-38-39-39-40 cm = 14 1/2”-15”-15”-15 1/4”-15 1/4”-15 3/4”, knit 1 round where you increase 24-20-20-18-22-24 stitches evenly on round = 180-192-212-230-254-276 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm = US 7. Work rib (knit 1 /purl 1) for 5 cm = 2”, then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl, The piece measures approx. 63-65-67-69-71-73 cm = 24 3/4”-25 1/2”-26 3/8”-27 1/8”-28”-28 3/4” from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 44-48-52-60-62-62 stitches from the one thread on short circular needle size 5 mm = US 8 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50-54-60-68-72-74 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the cast on stitches under the sleeve = beginning of round. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the sleeve measures 4 cm = 1 1/2” from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4½-3½-3-2-2-2 cm = 1 3/4”-1 1/4”-1 1/8”-3/4”-3/4”-3/4”- a total of 8-9-11-14-15-15 times = 34-36-38-40-42-44 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 37-37½-36-35½-34-33½ cm = 14 1/2”-14 3/4”-14 1/4”-14”-13 3/8”-13 1/8” from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 8 stitches evenly on round = 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm = US 7 and work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 1). When the rib measures 5 cm = 1 1/2” (or to desired length) bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 43-42½-42-40½-39-37 cm = 17”-16 3/4”-16 1/2”-16”-15 1/4”-14 1/2” from the division.
Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hi, mir geht's um die Zunahmen am Arm? Da heißt es in der Anleitung ".... Maschen für den Ärmeln stilllegen, .... neue Maschen anschlagen (= an der Seite unter dem Arm)". Wo sind die Zunahmen zu machen, am Ärmel?

Christiane 24.03.2019 - 21:28:

Hallo , mir sind die Zunahmen nicht klar Zählen die Machen dann zu den Ärmeln oder zum Vorder-bzw. Rückenteil?

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 12:03:

Liebe Christiane, die Passe ist hier eine Rundpasse, dh die Zunahmen bei der Passe werden regelmäßig verteilt - hier lesen Sie wie man regelmäßig zunimmt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susanne 05.03.2019 - 13:28:

Ich habe noch eine grundsätzliche Frage zum Modell: Warum sind vor den Bündchen jeweils noch Zunahmen zu stricken? Ich kenne das nur so, dass das Bündchen höchstens gleich viele oder oft auch weniger Maschen hat als der glatt gestrickte Teil. Wird das nicht zu weit auf diese Weise? (Bin gerade am Übergang zum Bündchen und bin im Zweifel, ob ich da zunehmen soll...)

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 14:43:

Liebe Susanne, wenn Sie nicht zunehmen, werden dann die Bündchen enger werden, damit die Bündchen nicht zu eng sind, wird es vor den Bündchen zugenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susanne 27.02.2019 - 11:33:

Ich habe das Modell für Drops Belle angepasst, was gut ging. Beim Muster ist die Anleitung allerdings unklar. In einem rund gestrickten Modell gibt es keine Hin- und Rückreihen. Eine linke Rückreihe müsste von vorne rechts erscheinen, das Foto zeigt aber, dass es nicht so gemeint ist. Das sollten Sie noch ändern.

DROPS Design 27.02.2019 kl. 12:17:

Liebe Susanne, stimmt, deutsche Anleitung wird angepasst. Das Diagramm lesen Sie immer rechts nach links, dh keine Rückreihe stricken (= 1. Reihe = rechts, 2. Reihe = links usw). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Andrea 25.02.2019 - 19:36:

Hallo, könnte man dieses Modell evt auf eine dünnere Wollstärke (Maschenprobe 24Mx32R) umrechnen? Wenn ja, wie? Bzw. gibt es eine Raglanärmel-Anleitung für meine (dünnere) Wollstärke. Dann könnte ich ja dann das strukturMuster einfach anwenden? LG Andrea

DROPS Design 26.02.2019 kl. 10:46:

Liebe Andrea, wir können leider nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder Anfrage anpassen, gerne können Sie sich ein anderes Modell aussuchen, das mit der gewünschten Maschenprobe gestrickt wird. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sara 28.01.2019 - 10:11:

Hej, jag förstår inte denna del: "OBS! Avsluta varvet i A.1 med omslag och 2 maskor räta tillsammans, med att sticka 0-1-0-0-0-1 rätmaska" Kan ni förklara det lite tydligare? Sista varvet i diagrammet är ju avigt, men skall jag avsluta det med att, när det är 2 maskor kvar, först ett omslag och sedan sticka ihop de två sista maskorna rät? Förstår inte alls vad "010001 maska" betyder och vart den skall in?

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 13:38:

Hei Sara. Den setningen var itt uklar, dette vil vli rettet med en gang. Det det skal stå er at på slutten av omgang 4 i diagrammet (den som slutter med 2 rett sammen, 1 kast) skal du strikke 0-1-0-0-0-1 maske rett. Det er fordi det i 2 størrelser vil gjenstå 1 maske før omgangen er ferdig (M og XXXL). De andre størrelsene trenger ikke å strikke denne rettmasken, derfor står det 0 for dem. God fornøyelse.

Petra 26.12.2018 - 14:53:

Gibt es diese Anleitung auch als Jacke?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 09:57:

Liebe Petra, dieses Modell gibt es nur als Pullover, aber hier finden Sie eine ähnliche Jacke. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Maria 29.10.2018 - 13:57:

Posso lavorare con ferri diritti?

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 20:04:

Cara Maria! Guarda QUI. Saluti!

Monique 13.07.2018 - 08:59:

Bitte als Jacke und Pollver veröffentlichen!

Monique 05.06.2018 - 16:28:

Il a l'air si douillet qu'il donne envie de le tricoter
