EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

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

DECREASE TIP-1 (for neckline):
All decreases are worked from the right side and decrease for neck inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the neck.
Decrease as follows after 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Work until there are 3 stitches left on row, knit 2 together and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (for decreases in middle of sleeves).
When decreasing 3-3-3-4-4-4 stitches evenly, it is neatest if the decreases are divided so that you decrease 1 stitch over each of the middle 3-3-3-4-4-4 repeats of A.1. Decrease 1 stitch by knitting 2 together.

DECREASE TIP-3 (for sleeves): 
All decreases are worked from the right side and decrease inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side:
Decrease as follows after the1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Work until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch (= 1 stitch decreased).

INCREASE TIP-1 (for bottom of sleeves):
Work 2 stitches in same stitch by knitting 1 stitch in the front and back loops of same stitch (= 1 stitch increased).

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly spaced at bottom of sleeves):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 62 stitches), minus edge stitches (e.g. 2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 17) = 3.5. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 3rd and 4th stitch. On the next row (right side) knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 32-32-36-36-40-40 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Air. Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left on row, knit 2 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this rib for 4 cm. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm. On the next 2 rows increase as described below.
First row worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work 2 stitches in each stitch until there is 1 stitch left on row – read INCREASE TIP-1, finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 62-62-70-70-78-78 stitches.
Next row is worked as follows from the wrong side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, purl until there is 1 stitch left on row and AT THE SAME TIME increase 17-17-9-20-12-12 stitches evenly over these stitches – read INCREASE TIP-2, finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 79-79-79-90-90-90 stitches.
Work 2 rows stocking stitch without increasing, with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side.
Then work as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work A.1 until there is 1 stitch left on row (= 7-7-7-8-8-8 repeats of 11 stitches), finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this pattern until A.1 has been worked a total of 5 times in height. The piece measures approx. 31 cm from the cast-on edge in all sizes and there is approx. 23-23-23-21-20-18 cm left to finished length.
Continue with stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 32 cm in all sizes, decrease 3-3-3-4-4-4 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every 4th row a total of 3 times = 70-70-70-78-78-78 stitches on needle. Continue with stocking stitch without further decreases.
When the piece measure 41 cm in all sizes, decrease 1 stitch in each side - read DECREASE TIP-3. Decrease like this every 1½-2-2-1-1-1 cm a total of 7-6-5-7-5-4 times = 56-58-60-64-68-70 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch without decreasing until the piece measures 53-53-51-49-47-45 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders and longer sleeve cap). Insert 1 marker in each side; these show where the sleeves will be sewn to the armhole. Continue working until the piece measures 54-54-54-52-51-49 cm. Then loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside the cast-off edge. Sew side seams from the armhole and down to split – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat.
Sew sleeve seams from the bottom up to the markers – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat.
Sew in sleeves inside the 1 edge stitch in each side on front and back pieces. The markers on the sleeves should match the bottom of the armhole.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side approx. 104 to 116 stitches around the neck (including the stitches from the thread in front) with short circular needle size 4.5 mm and Air – the number of stitches must be divisible by 4.
Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for approx. 3-3½ cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Er der ikke fejl i diagrammet kan ikke rigtig få det til at passe efter 4 pind det er på 5 pind der ikke rigtig passer.

Hej Connie, Jo det skal passe, prøv at strikke en lille prøve over 11 masker med 2 rapporter i højden. God fornøjelse!

Anne-Marie Lizet 03.04.2019 - 13:10:

Pattern 200-14 is missing in French or English 202-8 and201-23 as well not found on the site

DROPS Design 03.04.2019 kl. 13:56:

Dear Mrs Lizet, patterns 200-14 and 201-23 are not published yet - you can find 202-8 in French and in English. Happy knitting!

Susanne 25.03.2019 - 15:28:

Ist die Maschenprobe wirklich richtig? Egal mit welcher Nadelstärke ich es versuche, ich lande mit 16 Maschen und 20 Reihen immer bei einer deutlich weiteren Breite als Höhe (z.B. Breite 12 cm, Höhe 10 cm). Bisher bin ich – zumindest mit Anpassen der Nadelstärke – immer auf die Werte der Maschenprobe gekommen. Hier leider überhaupt nicht.

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 16:06:

Liebe Suzanne, am besten versuchen Sie die richtige Breite zu bekommen, die Länge sollen Sie dann anpassen, die Höhe wird hier in cm gemessen. Hier lesen Sie mehr über die Maschenprobe. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Angelique 21.02.2019 - 22:16:

Hoi! ik heb de eerste schouder van het voorpand af, maar vraag me af hoe ik nu met de 2e verder moet. Ik heb namelijk de steken op mijn naald, maar de bol garen zit nog vast aan de andere schouder.

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 13:47:

Dag Angelique,

Je kan gewoon de draad af knippen en met de andere schouder beginnen door daar de draad aan te hechten.

Ксения 07.02.2019 - 14:59:

Он прекрасен!

Nelleke Kost 31.01.2019 - 17:25:

Beste Lezer,Ik wil graag een trui breien maar weet niet welke wol-garen het beste gebruikt kan worden gebruikt. ook het aantal bollen weet ik niet kunt u mij verder helpen als ik een foto upload?Kan dat een foto uploaden ? Graag hoor ik van u.

DROPS Design 03.02.2019 kl. 11:49:

Dag Nelleke,

Het is helaas niet mogelijk om een foto te uploaden. Bij de patronen op de site staat voor elke maat aangegeven welk garen je daarvoor nodig hebt voor elke maat hoeveel gram je nodig hebt. (Bij de meeste garensoorten zit er 50 gram op een bol.)

Anna 24.01.2019 - 21:06:

Das wär das erste Modell, das mir ins Auge gestochen ist. Richtig lässig. Ich hab schon lang nach dieser Ärmelform gesucht!

Maria Kitzler 20.01.2019 - 21:15:

Hallo, Unter dem Begriff Lieblingsmodelle habe ich mehrere Modelle abgespeichert, die ich nacharbeiten möchte. Jetzt finde ich diese nicht mehr.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 12:18:

Liebe Frau Kitzler, die Favoriten kommen bald zurück! Danke für Ihr Verständnis; Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bourguignon 18.01.2019 - 19:00:

J'aime beaucoup ce modèle et sa couleur jaune éclatante ainsi que son point fantaisie. Je voulais le mettre dans mes favoris, mais je ne trouve plus la rubrique "mes préférés"! Elle a disparue!! C'est vraiment dommage, je pouvais sélectionner les ouvrages qui me plaisaient.
