EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 54 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 6) = 9. In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after each 9th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

STRIPES: 
See diagram A.1 and A.2. The stripes are worked in stocking stitch with 2 strands Air. Work A.1 once, then work A.2 to finished length (applies to both body and sleeves).

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads as follows: Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased and a total of 8 stitches increased on round.
On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for mid under sleeve):
Increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve as follows: Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased.
On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The neck, yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. The yoke is divided for sleeves and body. The body is worked in the round with circular needle, top down to finished length. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down. The whole garment is worked in 2 strands Air.

NECK:
Cast on 54-56-58-62-64-66 stitches with short circular needle size 7 mm and 2 strands blue. Work 3 RIDGES in the round – read description above. Knit 1 round where you increase 6-4-2-6-4-2 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 60-60-60-68-68-68 stitches. Change to circular needle size 9 mm and work yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches):
Count 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches, insert 1 marker thread before the next stitch (= ½ back piece), count 10 stitches in all sizes, insert 1 marker thread before the next stitch (= sleeve), count 20-20-20-24-24-24 stitches, insert 1 marker thread before the next stitch (= front piece), count 10 stitches in all sizes, insert 1 marker thread before the next stitch (= sleeve). There are 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread (= ½ back piece).
Then work as follows: Work STRIPES – read description above. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round increase to RAGLAN – read description above. Increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 12-14-15-16-17-19 times. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
After the last increase to raglan there are 156-172-180-196-204-220 stitches on the needle. Continue with stripes until the piece measures 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows from mid back: Work 24-26-27-30-32-35 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece), place the next 30-34-36-38-38-40 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 4-4-6-6-8-8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 48-52-54-60-64-70 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), place the next 30-34-36-38-38-40 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 4-4-6-6-8-8 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and work 24-26-27-30-32-35 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 104-112-120-132-144-156 stitches. Start the round on one side of the body, in the middle of the 4-4-6-6-8-8 stitches cast on under the sleeve.
Work stocking stitch in the round and continue the stripes in A.1. When A.1 has been completed, work A.2 to finished length.
When the piece measures 25 cm from the division, change to circular needle size 7 mm and 2 strands blue.
Work garter stitch in the round for 3 cm and finish with a purled round. Loosely cast off with knit, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with a larger needle. The jumper measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 30-34-36-38-38-40 stitches from the thread on the one side of the body on double pointed needles 9 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 4-4-6-6-8-8 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 34-38-42-44-46-48 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 4-4-6-6-8-8 stitches under the sleeve and allow it to follow your work onwards. The marker thread will be used when increasing mid under sleeve.
Work stocking stitch in the round and continue the stripes in the same way as on the body (important to continue on the same round as on the body after the yoke).
When the sleeve measures 4 cm from the division in all sizes, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 4-5-5-5-4½-4½ cm a total of 8-7-6-6-6-6 times = 50-52-54-56-58-60 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures approx. 45-44-42-40-39-37 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you decrease 4 stitches evenly in all sizes = 46-48-50-52-54-56 stitches. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 23-24-25-26-27-28 stitches.
Change to double pointed needles size 7 mm. Work garter stitch in the round for 3 cm and finish after a purled round. Cast off with knit, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight. The sleeve measures approx. 49-48-46-44-43-41 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Hei! Jeg lurer på hvorfor oppskriften sier at man etter å ha satt av masker til ermer skal kutte tråden og for å strikke bolen skal begynne neste omgang fra SIDEN av bolen ("midt i de 4-4-6-6-8-8 maskene som ble lagt opp under ermet" )? Er det noe i veien for å kunne fortsette uten å kutte tråden og altså startet omgangen midt bak? I fall det ikke er noe i veien for å gjøre det slik, må jeg gjøre gjøre noen tilpasninger da?

DROPS Design 07.05.2019 kl. 09:21:

Hej Heidi, Det er for at få overgangene ved farveskift i siden. Men det kan du naturligvis selv bestemme :)

Sølvi 02.05.2019 - 21:27:

Har lyst til å strikke den genseren som er avbildet men hvordan finner jeg ut av hvilken størrelse jeg skal ha når det ikke er noen mål å gå etter?!

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 07:21:

Hei Sølvi. Helt nederst på siden, rett under diagrammene ligger en målskisse med alle plaggets mål i alle størrelser. God fornøyelse

Lin Grieg Teigland 29.04.2019 - 11:02:

Hei, jeg har kjøpt alle fargene som er listet i oppskriften med ønske om å stikke en genser med fargekombinasjon som avbildet på modellen. Jeg er overrasket over å oppdage at at disse ikke samsvarer med A1 diagrammet. Hvor finner jeg diagram som samsvarer med bildet?

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 14:11:

Hei Lin. Genseren modellen har på på bildet er strikket etter diagram A.1 og A.2. Den er strikket ovenfra og ned, så starten på diagram A.1 er øverst i halskanten. Diagrammene leses på vanlig måte: nedenfra og opp. Stripene blir derfor slik (fra halsen og ned): 2 omg blå, 4 omg natur, 2 omg rosa, 4 omg rubinrød, 2 omg gul osv. God fornøyelse

Van patroon nr cl-045 is een blokje in het telpatroon zowel de heen als de terug gaande naald? Alvast bedankt.

Hetty 23.04.2019 - 11:32:

Hetty Van Buuren- De Swart 20.04.2019 - 12:30: Is dit patroon er ook op dunnere naalden ...?? Nr 5 jullie sturen een mail dat jullie daar antwoord op gegeven hebben .......maarrrrrr waar dan?

Hetty Van Buuren- De Swart 20.04.2019 - 12:30:

Is dit patroon er ook op dunnere naalden ...?? Nr 5

Es posible tejer las mangas primero después el cuerpo? Asi no usare las agujas de dos puntas por que no se hacer

Britt Madsen 09.04.2019 - 08:16:

Hvordan opnår jeg at mit strikkede arbejde efter vask ser ud som før? Jeg har brugt jeres vaskeanvisning, men mine trøjer bliver slaskede og ikke luftige som før😡kan se på facebook, at der er flere med samme problem! Hilsen britt

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 10:32:

Hej Britt, Uld behøver normalt ikke blive vasket så ofte. Når du vasker, skal du bruge vaskemiddel for uld, men kun lidt (brug ikke skyllemiddel). Det kan være en fordel at centrifugere blusen på lette omdrejninger. Sørg for at blusen ligger til tørre (må ikke hænge) og ryst den gerne lidt under tørreprocessen. God fornøjelse!

Anita øien 04.04.2019 - 09:20:

Her har dere skrevet forskjellige nr på samme genser. jeg lurer derfor på , hvilket nr er det på fargekombinasjonene på genser B

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 12:09:

Hei Anita. Det er disse fargene som er brukt på alternativ B) DROPS Air 12, 01, 09, 16, 21, 18, 11, 02, 19. God fornøyelse

Kirsten Reimers-Lund 15.03.2019 - 11:12:

Jeg købte ind til farverne i model C og troede at jeg kunne regne mig frem til hvilket diagram der passede til hvilken farve. Det var ikke muligt og det reultat der er kommet er farvemæssigt så håbløst at jeg netop har trevlet det hele op. Er det muligt at finde en diagramforklaring til model C? Iøvrigt skal diagrammet strikkes oppe fra og ned eller omvendt?

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 14:16:

Hei Kirsten. I forhold til rekkefølgen under MATERIALER øverst i oppskriften, blir fargene i alternativ C blir slik: 20, 01, 25, 08, 02, 15, 14, 07, og 13. Jeg ser det står 09 men det er en feil: det skal være farge 13, Orange. Men det kan bli like fint med mellomgrå her. Dvs at fargenummer 20 tilsvarer farge 16, 01 forblir den samme, 25 tilsvarer farge 24 osv.. Så kan du bruke symbolforklaringen til å finne ut hvilke farger som erstatter hvilke i diagrammet. Diagrammet leses fra høyre mot venstre, nedenfra og opp. For mer informasjon om å lese strikkediagrammer trykk her God fornøyelse
