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.

Wieviel Garn bräuchte ich ungefähr, wenn ich den Pullover einfarbig stricken möchte? Herzliche Grüße, Vanessa

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 09:05:

Liebe Vanessa, dann sollten Sie 400-450-500-550-600-650g DROPS Air brauchen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Tove Johannesen 05.02.2019 - 17:43:

Har akkurat hentet garnet i post i butikk, og gleder med å starte arbeidet.

Randi Lisø 03.02.2019 - 07:56:

Finnes denne oppskriften som jakke? Kunne tenkt meg den som jakke og litt lengre på lengden? Hvor mye ekstra garn trenger jeg for å strikke den 10 cm lengre?

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 09:16:

hei Randi. Denne modellen finnes kun som genser dessverre. Det er ikke noe i veien for at du selv gjør om oppskriften til en jakke hvis du ønsker det: enten legg opp oppklippsmasker midt foran eller strikk frem og tilbake med knappestolper i hver side. Vi har dessverre ikke oversikt over hvor mye garn som går med om du vil forlenge genseren med 10 cm. Det strikkes jo striper så det avhenger også helt av hvor tykke de blir osv. God fornøyelse

Anne-Laure 28.01.2019 - 17:31:

Bonjours. Pardon... Je vous précise donc les tailles qui m'intéressent: S/M/L. Merci d'avance pour vos précisions!

DROPS Design 29.01.2019 kl. 10:21:

Bonjour Anne-Laure, il vous faudra 400-450-500 g pour le pull avec une seule couleur en taille S-M-L. Bon tricot!

Anne-Laure 28.01.2019 - 00:18:

Bonjour. Merci pour ce joli modèle: J'aurais souhaité le réaliser mais en monochrome... Est-ce que la quantité de laine varie alors? Si celà est le cas, pourriez-vous m'indiquer le poids nécessaire s'il-vous plait ? Merci d'avance!

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 07:31:

Bonjour, quelle est votre taille?

Marianne 24.01.2019 - 14:38:

Er modellen strikket i Drops Air eller garnalternativ? Skal man ændre på opskriften hvis man vælger kun at strikke med en tråd Drops air.? Vil gerne have en forårstrøje som ikke er for varm.

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 08:18:

Hei Marianne. Ja, genseren på bildet er strikket med 2 tråder Air. Når du strikker med 2 tråder får du et dobbelt så tykt garn (naturlig nok) og strikkefastheten endrer seg også drastisk i forhold til om du strikker med 1 tråd. Om du uten å tilpasse oppskriften blir genseren altfor liten i forhold til målskisse. Du må strikke med mange fler masker, og mange fler omganger om du strikker med kun 1 tråd. Du kan selvfølgelig selv tilpasse oppskriften om du ønsker, ta da utgangspunktet i den nye strikkefastheten når du regner om hvor mange masker du trenger. Eller så kan du finne en modell som allerede er strikket med 1 tråd Air, eller tilsvarende garn. God fornøyelse.

Jeg kan ikke umiddelbart se noget brystmål. Hvad er omkredsen i en str medium?

Marie Galting 21.01.2019 - 14:54:

Hej :) Jeg har købt drops air, så jeg kan strikke denne i ensfarvet. Jeg kunne godt tænke mig at have max 2 masker mellem raglanudtagningerne. Kan jeg uden videre justere dette? Vil jeg skulle have de resterende masker på hhv. ærmer og for-og bagstykke? VH Marie

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 08:36:

Hei Marie. Ja det erikke noe i veien for at du kun har 2 masker mellom raglanøkningene. Plasser merketrådene som anvist, men øk 1 maske før og etter isteden for 2. God fornøyelse
