EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back are not tight. Go up a needle size when working pattern if this is a problem.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 95 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 39) = 2.4.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 2nd and 3rd stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 4 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 8 (marker thread sits in middle of these 8 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at each marker thread and a total of 4 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-3 (for mid under sleeves):
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in middle of these 2 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.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves):
Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits in middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck and yoke are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves. The body is continued in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are continued in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 95-100-100-105-110-115 stitches with short circular needle size 3.5 mm and light lilac. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 3) for 3 cm.
When the rib is finished, knit 1 round where you increase 39-40-42-43-44-47 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 134-140-142-148-154-162 stitches. Then work the yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work stocking stitch in the round with light lilac. AT THE SAME TIME increase evenly as described below. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 5-5-5-5-5-6 cm from the cast-on edge, increase 44-46-50-50-52-52 stitches evenly spaced = 178-186-192-198-206-214 stitches.
When the piece measures 7-7-7-7-7-9 cm from the cast-on edge, increase 38-42-48-40-42-44 stitches evenly = 216-228-240-238-248-258 stitches. The increases are finished in sizes S, M and L.
XL, XXL and XXXL: When the piece measures 9-10-12 cm from the cast-on edge, increase 38-40-42 stitches evenly = 276-288-300 stitches.
ALL SIZES:
= 216-228-240-276-288-300 stitches. Continue working without further increases until the piece measures 8-9-10-11-13-15 cm from the cast-on edge.
Now start pattern on the yoke – read KNITTING TIP and work A.1 in the round (= 18-19-20-23-24-25 repeats of 12 stitches).
Continue this pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in A.1 increase as follows.
Round with arrow-1 in A.1 increase 24-36-36-36-48-48 stitches evenly spaced = 240-264-276-312-336-348 stitches (there is now room for 20-22-23-26-28-29 repeats of 12 stitches).
Round with arrow-2 in A.1 increase 24-24-36-36-36-48 stitches evenly spaced = 264-288-312-348-372-396 stitches (there is now room for 22-24-26-29-31-33 repeats of 12 stitches).
When A.1 has been completed continue with stocking stitch and light lilac until the piece measures 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 41-44-46-52-57-62 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece), place the next 50-56-64-70-72-74 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve), work 82-88-92-104-114-124 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), place the next 50-56-64-70-72-74 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 41-44-46-52-57-62 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 180-192-204-228-252-276 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side of the body in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under each sleeve. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards; they will be used when increasing in the sides.
Start the round by one of the marker threads and work stocking stitch in the round with light lilac. When the piece measures 2-2-2-1-1-1 cm from the division, work A.2A in the round (= 15-16-17-19-21-23 repeats of 12 stitches). When A.2A has been completed, continue with stocking stitch in the round.
When the piece measures 5 cm from the division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 5 cm a total of 5 times on each side = 200-212-224-248-272-296 stitches. Then continue working until the piece measures 27 cm from the division in all sizes (or to desired length; there is 3 cm left to finished length).
Knit 1 round where you increase 50-53-56-62-68-74 stitches evenly spaced = 250-265-280-310-340-370 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 3) for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 50-56-64-70-72-74 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 58-64-74-80-84-88 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches. Allow the marker thread to follow your work onwards; it will be used when decreasing under the sleeve.
Start the round at the marker thread and work stocking stitch in the round with light lilac.
When the piece measures 2-2-2-1-1-1 cm from the division, work the next round as follows: 4-1-0-3-5-1 stitches in stocking stitch, work A.2A over the next 48-60-72-72-72-84 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-7 repeats of 12 stitches), work A.2B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 5-2-1-4-6-2 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue this pattern. When A.2 has been completed continue with stocking stitch.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 3-3-3-2-2-2 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3-2-1-1-1-1 cm a total of 4-6-10-11-11-11 times = 50-52-54-58-62-66 stitches. When the sleeve measures 15-15-15-14-14-14 cm from the division, increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read INCREASE TIP-3. Increase like this every 3-3-2½-2½-2½-2 cm a total of 5 times in all sizes = 60-62-64-68-72-76 stitches.
Continue working until the sleeve measures 32-30-29-28-27-25 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 15-13-16-17-18-19 stitches evenly spaced = 75-75-80-85-90-95 stitches.
Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 3) for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 35-33-32-31-30-28 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Ik begrijp A2b niet. Dat moet dan 1 gaatje worden?

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 17:54:

Dag Emma,

Ja klopt, dit is 1 steek, behalve op de derde naald, maar deze sluit aan op het patroon A.2a.

Emma 13.02.2019 - 14:22:

Bedankt voor de reactie maar de hals in boordsteek is in eerste instantie 95 steken. Pas ná de boord dient er gemeerderd te worden en krijg je 134 steken/67 cm rondom. Met los opzetten en achteraf de boord persen krijg je echt geen wijde hals zoals op de foto. Dit is ook te zien op de tekening, daar meet de boord exact het aantal cm wat ik nu heb. Erg jammer.

Emma 13.02.2019 - 09:33:

Aanvulling op mijn eerdere vraag. Als ik naar de afmeting van de hals kijk op de tekening in het patroon dan is deze gelijk aan wat ik nu op de pen heb staan. Klopt de foto wel met het patroon?

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 10:32:

Dag Emma,

De afmetingen die in de tekening staan aangegeven zijn de juiste maten. We proberen een zo representatief mogelijke foto weer te geven, maar deze kan soms ietsje afwijken.

Emma 12.02.2019 - 23:36:

Ik ben begonnen met de trui in maat S. Met 95 steken voor de hals krijg ik een normale ronde halslijn en niet de wijde zoals op de foto. Heeft het model wellicht een hele grote maat aan op de foto? Ik vind nou juist die wijdere halslijn zo leuk en overweeg het nu maar uit te halen en de hals met meer steken op te zetten. Graag advies.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 10:35:

Dag Emma,

Na het breien van de halsboord meerder je het aantal steken in maat S naar 134 en dit komt overeen met een hals van 67 cm rondom. Je kan er ook voor kiezen om de steken wat losjes op te zetten zodat de hals rekbaar is. Dan kun je na het breien het werk een beetje oppersen, zodat je een wat wijdere hals hebt. Op deze manier kun je gewoon het patroon met het aangegeven aantal steken blijven volgen.

Henriette Friis 12.02.2019 - 22:23:

Er det muligt at omsætte blusen i et garn der har 25 m 34 r = 10 cm på pind 3½. Jeg tænkteom man måske kunne strikke modellen i str L og så få str S/M ???

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 11:40:

Hej Henriette, hvis du vælger L får du med DROPS Sky ca 204/20 = 100 cm i brystvidde. Bruger du et garn med 25 m får du 204m/25 = ca 82 cm i brystvidde. Sørg for at følge højdemålene i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Mariella 04.02.2019 - 16:29:

Fatto modello molto bello spiegazioni semplici e facili da seguire grazie e complimenti

Ellie V D Kaa 29.01.2019 - 17:41:

Waarom zijn de hals altijd zo wijd ik heb al enkele truien gebreid en moet ze altijd aanpassen bij de een lukt het beter als weer bij de anderen

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 16:43:

Dag Ellie,

De hals van dit patroon is inderdaad wijder dan sommige andere patronen. Dit is hoe onze ontwerpers het hebben bedacht

Anny 23.01.2019 - 08:05:

Good day. Excuse me, I started to learn this wonderful pattern. I do not see the schemes A.2A and A.2B for knitting sleeves ...

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 08:25:

Dear Amy, thanks for your feedback, pattern has been edited and new diagrams will be added. Happy knitting!

Christine 13.01.2019 - 21:25:

Très bel assemblage de motifs et de points qui donne un fini délicat et féminin. J'aime beaucoup le tricotage en arrondi des épaules. "Lavender dream" ou "lilac powder" pour le nom.
