EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 264 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 64) = 4.1.
In this example, decrease by knitting together approx. every 3rd and 4th stitch.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body): 
Start 5 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 6 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 6 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body and mid under sleeve):
Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 6 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Decrease to raglan in each transition between body and sleeves (i.e. decrease on each side of A.2) = 8 stitches decreased each time.
Decrease as follows before A.2: Work until there are 2 stitches left before A.2, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows after A.2: slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT SUMMARY OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle as far as the armholes. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle. Then the body and sleeves are placed on the same circular needle and the yoke is worked in the round to finished length.

BODY:
Cast on 264-292-320-352-388-424 stitches with circular needle size 2.5 mm and BabyAlpaca Silk. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm.
Knit 1 round where you decrease 64-72-80-88-96-104 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 200-220-240-264-292-320 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 6 cm in all sizes, insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 marker thread after 100-110-120-132-146-160 stitches (= in the sides). On the next round decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read DECREASE TIP-2 = 4 stitches decreased. Decrease like this every 2 cm a total of 5 times in each side = 180-200-220-244-272-300 stitches on the needle.
When the piece measures 20 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read INCREASE TIP = 4 stitches increased. Increase like this every 2 cm a total of 5 times in each side = 200-220-240-264-292-320 stitches.
Continue working until the piece measures 30 cm in all sizes. On the next round cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches in each side for the armholes (i.e. cast off 5-5-6-6-7-8 stitches on each side of both marker threads). There are now 90-100-108-120-132-144 stitches left on front and back pieces.
Lay the piece to one side and work sleeves as described below.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles, change to short circular needle when necessary.
Cast on 56-60-60-64-68-68 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and BabyAlpaca Silk. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 10-12-10-12-12-10 stitches evenly on round = 46-48-50-52-56-58 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 8 cm in all sizes, insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under sleeve). On the next round increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3½-3-2-2-1½-1½ cm a total of 9-9-11-10-11-7 times and then every 1 cm a total of 5-9-11-13-13-18 times = 74-84-94-98-104-108 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 45-44-42-41-39-37 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). On the next round cast off 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches mid under sleeve for the armhole (i.e. cast off 5-5-6-6-7-8 stitches on each side of the marker thread) = 64-74-82-86-90-92 stitches left on needle. Lay the piece to one side and work the other sleeve in the same way.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on same circular needle as the body, where you cast off stitches for the armholes (do this without working the stitches) = 308-348-380-412-444-472 stitches on the needle. Insert 1 marker in each transition between body and sleeves = 4 markers. Imagine that the garment is on the body and start the round by the marker in the transition between back piece and left arm, i.e. start 9-9-9-10-10-10 stitches before this marker and work the first round as follows: Work A.1 (= 17-17-17-19-19-19 stitches which increase to 23-23-23-27-27-27 stitches), work stocking stitch over the sleeve until there are 8-8-8-9-9-9 stitches left before the next marker, work A.1 (= 17-17-17-19-19-19 stitches which increase to 23-23-23-27-27-27 stitches), stocking stitch over the front piece until there are 9-9-9-10-10-10 stitches left before the next marker. Work A.1 (= 17-17-17-19-19-19 stitches which increase to 23-23-23-25-25-25 stitches), stocking stitch over the sleeve until there are 8-8-8-9-9-9 stitches left before the next marker, work A.1 (= 17-17-17-19-19-19 stitches which increase to 23-23-23-27-27-27 stitches) and stocking stitch over the back piece to the end of the round = 332-372-404-444-476-504 stitches on the needle.
Continue the pattern like this, but when A.1 has been completed work A.2 over the 23-23-23-27-27-27 stitches in each raglan line (due to the pattern the number of stitches in A.2 will vary between 23 and 21 stitches in sizes S, M and L and between 27 and 25 stitches in XL, XXL and XXXL).
AT THE SAME TIME on the round where you start A.2 begin to decrease to RAGLAN in each transition between body and sleeves – read description above. Continue to decrease to raglan every 4th round a total of 9-8-8-8-8-9 times and then every 2nd round a total of 11-16-19-22-25-26 times.
After the last decrease there are 172-180-188-204-212-224 stitches left on the needle and the piece measures approx. 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
On the next round knit over knit and purl over purl AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 6-6-6-8-8-8 stitches evenly over A.2 in each raglan line = 148-156-164-172-180-192 stitches left on needle.
Knit 1 round where you decrease 24-28-32-32-36-40 evenly on round – remember DECREASE TIP-1 = 124-128-132-140-144-152 stitches. Then work neck as described below.

NECK:
Change to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Purl 1 round and knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 2 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from shoulder down.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew openings under the sleeves.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= this square has no stitch because the stitch was decreased earlier; go directly to next symbol in diagram.
= knit 3, pass the first stitch knitted over the 2 last stitches so that it lies around the other 2 stitches (= 1 stitch decreased)
= place 2 stitches on cable needle behind the piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= place 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= place 3 stitches on cable needle behind the piece, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle
= place 3 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle
= knit 1 both in front and back of same stitch (= 1 stitch increased)

Üdv! A lap tetején az van, hogy fentről kezdett...! A minta leírás 264-424 szemet ír kezdésnek. Nincs valami elírva?

Eva Magashazi 02.01.2019 - 12:54:

Wie oft wird das Muster A.1 gestrickt und besteht A.1 nur aus 2 Runden??

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 13:08:

Liebe Frau Magashazi, A.1 wird nur einmal in der Höhe gestrickt = 2 Runde nur. Dann wird A.2 über A.1 gestrickt (und in der Höhe wiederholt). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Suzanne Rodskier 02.01.2019 - 12:04:

På bildet av modellen er det en skillelinje tvers over ermet på høyde med der bærestykket begynner. Hva er dette?

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 11:00:

Hei Suzanne. Det ser ut som det er noe rart med bildet her, det blir ikke noen sånn linje i plagget. God fornøyelse

Liv Haram 20.11.2018 - 09:59:

196/29 oppskrift. Skal man felle hver 4.omgang fra begynnelsen av A2 raglanfellinga? Hva menes med raglanlinja?

DROPS Design 20.11.2018 kl. 11:59:

Hei Liv. ja, den første fellingen til raglan gjøres på 1 omgang av A.2, deretter hver 4 omgang til du har felt totalt på totalt 9-8-8-8-8-9 omganger. Deretter feller du på annenhver omgang til du har felt på 11-16-19-22-25-26 omganger til. Raglanlinjen er overgangen mellom bol og ermer, der du feller til raglan (Altså, A.2 går over hver raglanlinje) God fornøyelse

I have an advertisement for your yarn that I had kept from a creative knitting magazine May 2006. Their was a picture of a girl wearing a pull over striped sweater. It is beautiful!! Would you still have the pattern and yarn for this sweater? On the picture it says Drops 77,Model 17. Your yarn and patterns are certainly top notch. I wish you had a store here in the US. Thank you for your help

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 09:51:

Dear Mrs Balliet, you will find the patern DROPS 77-17 here - and all DROPS stores shipping to US regularly there. Happy knitting!
