Pattern instructions

EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
Jumper: See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
Hat: See diagram A.3.
Work all stitches in stocking stitch.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on round (e.g. 124 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreased/increases to be done (e.g. 20) = 6.2. In this example decrease by knitting approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together. 
When increasing make a yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle number when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to mid under sleeve):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 4 stitches remain before marker and knit 2 together, knit 4 (marker thread is between these 4 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to hat):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at each of the remaining marker threads.

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle from mid back, work top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 124-128-136-140-148-152 stitches on a short circular needle size 2.5 mm with off white. Knit 1 round. Now work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 3 cm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 20-20-20-20-20-20 stitches evenly - read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 104-108-116-120-128-132 stitches. Knit 1 round.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Read KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! 
Now work pattern A.1 (= 4 stitches) 26-27-29-30-32-33 times in total on round. On round with black star in A.1 increase 20-24-20-24-32-36 stitches evenly – remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 228-240-252-264-288-300 stitches (including the 4 stitches increased in every repetition of A.1.
Now work pattern A.2 in the round, AT THE SAME TIME on round with arrow increase evenly as follows:
ARROW-1: Increase 24-36-36-36-36-36 stitches = 252-276-288-300-324-336 stitches.
ARROW-2: Increase 24-24-36-36-36-36 stitches = 276-300-324-336-360-372 stitches.
ARROW-3: Increase 24-24-24-36-36-36 stitches = 300-324-348-372-396-408 stitches.
ARROW-4: Increase 12-24-24-24-24-24 stitches = 312-348-372-396-420-432 stitches.
When entire A.2 has been worked vertically, piece measures 20 cm from cast-on edge. Now work piece in light beige and stocking stitch, AT THE SAME TIME on first round
increase 14-10-14-17-20-14 stitches evenly. Increase like this every 4th-4th-5th-6th-8th-8th round 1-2-2-2-2-4 times in total = 326-368-400-430-460-488 stitches. Then work until piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm from cast-on edge. Work next round as follows: Knit 49-54-58-64-70-75 (= half back piece), slip the next 64-75-83-86-90-93 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), knit 99-109-117-129-140-151 (= front piece), slip the next 64-75-83-86-90-93 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 50-55-59-65-70-76 stitches (= half back piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 218-238-258-282-308-334 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches that were cast on under sleeves. Move the marker threads upwards when working. Continue in the round with light beige and stocking stitch. When piece measures 4 cm from division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 8th round 9 times in total = 254-274-294-318-344-370 stitches. Continue like this until piece measures 27 cm. Knit 1 round while increasing 82-86-94-106-116-122 stitches evenly - remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 336-360-388-424-460-492 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl but to avoid at tight cast-off edge make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (cast off yarn overs as stitches). Jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 64-75-83-86-90-93 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece double pointed needles/a short circular needle size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 74-85-95-98-104-109 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches under sleeve. Begin round here and work in stocking stitch in the round. When sleeve measures 4 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP-1! Decrease like this every 10th-8th-6th-6th-6th-4th round 7-3-9-5-1-18 times and every 8th-6th-4th-4th-4th-2nd round 4-12-10-14-20-4 times = 52-55-57-60-62-65 stitches. When sleeve measures 38-36-35-33-31-30 cm from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), knit 1 round while increasing 16-17-19-20-18-19 stitches evenly - remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 68-72-76-80-80-84 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2. When rib measures 5 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl but to avoid a tight cast-off edge make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (cast off yarn overs as regular stitches). Sleeve measures approx. 43-41-40-38-36-35 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

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

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE GARMENT:
Work in the round on a short circular needle. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.

HAT:
Cast on 120-132 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm with off white. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 2 cm. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work pattern A.3 (= 12 stitches) 10-11 times in total on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.3 has been worked vertically, piece measures approx. 14-14 cm. Then work in stocking stitch in the round with light beige. When piece measures 15-15 cm, insert 6 marker threads in the piece, 20-22 stitches apart each marker thread. On next round, decrease 1 stitch before every marker thread – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every other round 14-17 times in total = 36-30 stitches. Knit 2 and 2 stitches together until there are 9-8 stitches on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten tog and fasten. Hat measures approx. 24-26 cm. Make a pompom approx. 6 cm in diameter. Use 3 strand light camel, 1 strand off white and 1 strand light beige to make pompom and fasten at the top of hat.

Beste, voor het breien van de mouwen van deze trui heb ik eveneens de 5 naalden zonder kop nr 3 besteld. Deze schuiven heel slecht bij het breien. Graag enkele tips om dit te verhelpen. Alvast bedankt !!

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 10:16:

Dag Kristien,

Hiervoor kun je het beste even terecht bij de winkel waar je de naalden gekocht hebt. Als je te strak breit schuiven de steken ook slecht bij het breien en dan staat dat los van de naalddikte.

Shiva Gudrunsdatter Wollenberg 09.01.2019 - 21:45:

Det virker som, der er fejl i opskrift - den var meget bred, så jeg måtte trevle for/bag helt op til ærmegab og strikke den uden udtagninger, og lave den en del længere, da den også var meget kort i livet - ligeledes ærmerne måtte jeg lave 7 cm længere??? Kan det passe?

GIOVANNA 09.01.2019 - 13:52:

Ho realizzato questo maglione in meno di 10 giorni, tutto perfetto tranne che per le misure che ho dovuto adattare. 31 cm. dall' inizio del bordo in basso all' attacco manica sono davvero pochini. Per il resto bello e divertente.

Gunn 06.01.2019 - 11:25:

Hvorfor oppgis at man skal strikke ovenfra og ned på en genser med rundfelling? Det er motstridende og gjør det vanskelig å søke opp plagg som skal strikkes nedenfra og ha en reell FELLING. Må åpne mange mønster før man treffer.

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 10:58:

Hei Gunn. Rundfelling er beskrivelsen av hvordan bærestykket er strikket. Selvom det stemmer at det økes når man strikker ovenfra og ned, så blir bærestykket helt likt som om man hadde strikket nedenfra og opp (og da felt). Grunnen til at det strikkes ovenfra og ned er at det gir strikkeren mer fleksibilitet, feks til å tilpasse lengden på bærestykket. Det er også lettere å prøve plagget på underveis. Vi pleier å opplyse om strikkeretning i tittelen der det strikkes ovenfra og ned. Det er ikke noe i veien for at du selv tilpasser oppskriften så du kan strikke den nedenfra og opp om du ønsker det. God fornøyelse

Eva 05.01.2019 - 13:54:

Har 127 m skal tage 20 m ud. Det skal iflg opskriften ende med 263 m. Det er i mønster 1 str l. Det gi`r ingen mening for mig. Mvh Eva

Lucie 04.12.2018 - 16:52:

Eine Frage zum Pullover: Bei der Passe, Strickmuster A1 sollen in der, mit dem Sternchen markierten Reihe, 20-24-20-24-32-36 Maschen zugenommen werden. Hat sich da für die Größe L und XL ein Fehler eingeschlichen? Und wenn ja, wieviele Maschen sollen es dort sein? Danke für eine Antwort und herzliche Grüße Lucie

DROPS Design 05.12.2018 kl. 07:56:

Liebe Lucie, in die Größe L-XL haben Sie zuerst 116-120 M, dann wiederholen Sie A.1 x 29-30 M in der Breite - 4 M werden in jedem A.1 zugenommen, wenn alle Zunahmen (Umschläge) in A.1 gestrickt wurden haben Sie 29-30 x 4= 116-120 M zugenommen und 232-240 M auf der Nadel. Bei der Reihe mit dem Sternchen nehmen Sie 20-24 M regelmäßig verteilt zu= 252-264 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Viv 02.12.2018 - 09:08:

Wat een mooi ontwerp! Het valt mij op dat het patroon niet helemaal overeenkomt met de trui van het model. Ik mis de tweede streep met de kleur naturel na de streep in licht beige. Klopt dit?

Ilovedogs 15.11.2018 - 08:49:

Mi piacerebbe fare questo delizioso maglioncino per la mia nipotina di 4 anni: quanta lana di alpaca mi servirebbe ?

DROPS Design 15.11.2018 kl. 09:11:

Buongiorno Ilovedogs. Per un aiuto sulla quantità di filato necessario, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Hallo, Sehr gerne würde ich diesen Pulli stricken. Leider fehlt in der Beschreibung Muster A1 welches sofort nach dem Bündchen zu erfolgen hat. Auch die Maßskizze ist nicht ersichtlich. Können Sie mir bitte beides zumailen, damit ich starten kann. Vielen Dank und liebe Grüße aus Essen Von Ute Kohns

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 08:23:

Liebe Frau Kohns, A.1 und Maßskizze sind beide ganz am Ende der Seite - bitte beim drucken beachten, daß alle Seiten gedruckt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
