EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 96 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 4) = 24.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 24th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

STRIPES:
Work 3 cm = 1 1/8” with black after the rib. Then work stripes of 10½-10½-11-11½-12-13 cm = 4 1/8”-4 1/8”-4 3/8”-4 1/2”-4 3/4”-5 1/8” in the following order: grey, lemon, jeans blue and curry. When the stripes are finished continue with black.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan every 2nd round as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker sits in middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over. Yarn overs are knitted twisted on next round to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, knit 2 (marker thread sits in between these 2 stitches), knit 2 together.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from the neck down to the armholes. Then you divide for body and sleeves, which are finished separately. The body is continued in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with circular needle; change to double pointed needles when enough stitches have been decreased.
SWEATER:
Cast on 96-104-108-112-116-120 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and black. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm = 1 1/8”. Change to circular needle size 5 mm = US H/8 and knit 1 round where you decrease 4-2-4-4-4-4 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP = 92-102-104-108-112-116 stitches.
Work 1 round stockinette stitch where you insert markers in the piece for raglan as follows: Insert the first marker at the beginning of the round, 2nd marker after the next 10 stitches, 3rd marker after the next 36-41-42-44-46-48 stitches and 4th marker after the next 10 stitches. There are now 4 markers in the piece (10 stitches on each sleeve and 36-41-42-44-46-48 on front and back pieces).
Continue with stockinette stitch, STRIPES and increase to RAGLAN – see descriptions above, at each marker. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 24-25-28-30-33-35 times = 284-302-328-348-376-396 stitches on round. Work until the piece measures 20-21-23-25-27-29 cm = 8”-8 1/4”-9”-9 3/4”-10 5/8”-1 3/8” from the rib. Now divide the piece as follows from the beginning of the round (= by first marker): Place the first 58-60-66-70-76-80 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches on the needle and work 84-91-98-104-112-118 stitches (= front piece), place the next 58-60-66-70-76-80 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches on the needle and work the next 84-91-98-104-112-118 stitches to end of round (= back piece) = 184-198-216-228-248-264 stitches on round. So that the transition between stripes does not show, work on and start the round from the middle of the new stitches cast on at the beginning of the round. Continue with stripes and stockinette stitch until the stripes are finished; then work the rest of the piece in black. When the piece measures 23-24-24-24-24-24 cm = 9”-9 1/2”-9 1/2”-9 1/2”-9 1/2”-9 1/2” from the division under the sleeves, work 1 round stockinette stitch where you increase 4-6-4-4-4-4 stitches evenly spaced = 188-204-220-232-252-268 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and work rib with knit 2 /purl 2 until the rib measures 5 cm = 2”. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm = 21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4" from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 58-60-66-70-76-80 stitches from the one thread on short circular needle size 5 mm = US H/8 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast on under the sleeve = 66-68-76-80-88-94 stitches. So that the transition between stripes does not show, work on and start the round from the middle of the new stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of these new stitches. Continue with stripes and stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 2-2-2-2-3-2 cm = 3/4”-3/4”-3/4”-3/4”-1 1/8”-3/4” from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3½-3½-2½-2-1½-1½ cm = 1 1/4”-1 1/4”-1”-3/4”-1/2”-1/2” a total of 11-11-14-15-18-20 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. NOTE! When the stripes are finished continue with black to finished length.
Work until the piece measures 38-37-36-34-32-31 cm = 15”-14 1/2”-14 1/4”-13 3/8”-12 1/2”-12 1/4” from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Work 1 round stockinette stitch where you increase 4-6-4-6-4-6 stitches evenly spaced = 48-52-52-56-56-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm = US 6 and work rib with knit 2/purl 2 until the rib measures 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 42-41-40-38-36-35 cm = 16 1/2”-16 1/8”-15 3/4”-15”-14 1/4”-13 3/4” from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Bonjour, Est-il possible de réaliser ce modèle en fausses côtes anglaises ? Merci

DROPS Design 23.05.2019 kl. 09:52:

Bonjour Isabelle, ce modèle a été écrit pour du jersey, la tension en hauteur (et éventuellement en largeur) sera différente avec des fausses côtes anglaises, et les explications risquent de ne pas s'appliquer - retrouvez ici tous nos pulls en fausses côtes anglaises/côtes anglaises . Bon tricot!

Frederika 08.05.2019 - 17:47:

Ik begrijp niet goed hoe ik, bij het verdelen van het werk voor de armsgaten, de overgang tussen de strepen niet zichtbaar laat zijn. Moet ik de helft van de nieuw opgezette steken overslaan? En geldt dat ook voor het andere armsgat? En zo ja, wat doe ik met de overgeslagen steken?

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 15:51:

Dag Frederika,

Het begin van de naald was eerst bij een raglan en vanaf de scheiding met de mouwen is het begin onder de arm, zodat de overgangen van kleur niet opvallen. Je hoeft geen steken over te slaan. Als je wisselt van kleur doe je dat in het midden van de steken onder de arm.

Ranveig Borgestrand 08.05.2019 - 17:08:

Hei jeg strikker str M . Er det riktig at alle partien skal være 10,5 cm ? Da blir den 44 cm før det svarte. De blir veldig kort 😂

DROPS Design 10.05.2019 kl. 07:56:

Hei Ranveig. Det stemmer at stripene måler 10,5 cm. Du strikker først 6 cm i sort (3 cm vrangbord + 3 cm glattstrikk). Videre strikkes 4 striper a 10,5 cm: 42 cm striper. Dvs den totale lengde på plagget = 48 cm når du bytter til sort igjen. God fornøyelse

Vicki 01.05.2019 - 13:00:

There are several different colour options shown. What are the actual colours used in the one with black, grey, pink / lilac?

DROPS Design 01.05.2019 kl. 13:10:

Dear Vicki, you can find the colour combinations just below the needle used. Anyway the colour combination you required is B) DROPS Sky 05, 08, 02, 14, 01. Happy knitting!

Bente 23.04.2019 - 16:17:

Jeg vil gerne strikke den i farvekombination B. Hvilke farver/ numre er det?

DROPS Design 25.04.2019 kl. 10:59:

Hej. Färgkombination B är dessa färger: DROPS Sky 05, 08, 02, 14, 01.

Anita Thorsén 14.04.2019 - 22:12:

Jeg skrev til jer 18/2 og har ikke fået noget svar??

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 12:04:

Hei Anita. Beklager sent svar. Om du velger "spørsmål" isteden for "kommentar" når du skriver til oss, vil vi se spørsmålet ditt mye raskere. Det ligger en målskisse nederst på siden, med alle plaggets mål i alle størrelser. Om brystvidden er 95 cm rundt, blir dette bli 47,5 cm tvers over. Det blir opp til deg hvor tettsittende du ønsker genseren: S = 48 cm og M = 52 cm, målt tvers over. Lengden er henholdsvis 52 og 56 cm, men dette kan justeres etter ønske. God fornøyelse

Monica 03.04.2019 - 23:15:

Buongiorno, potrei avere le misure degli aumenti/ diminuzioni considerando che il mio campione 10 x10 è fatto di 23 maglie x 25 ferri? Grazie!

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 08:35:

Buongiorno Monica, purtroppo non possiamo fornire un aiuto più personalizzato. Affinché il capo risulti come quello mostrato deve raggiungere la tensione indicata nel modello. In caso contrario può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore DROPS di fiducia per avere tutta l'assistenza necessaria. Buon lavoro!

Van 16.03.2019 - 02:01:

Ou puis je trouver le nombre de pelotes necessaires ? Merci

DROPS Design 18.03.2019 kl. 07:34:

Bonjour Van! Cela depend de votre taille. Dans la taille S il vous faut au total 250 g (5 pelotes), un dans chaque couleur. Dans la taille XXXL, il vous faut au total 750 g (15 pelotes), trois dans chaque couleur. Bon travail!

Hilde Van Boven 10.03.2019 - 19:18:

Meet 20cm vanaf opzet, moet dat toch niet van onder de boord zijn? De lengte wordt dan vanaf dat punt gemeten, 23cm + 5 cm boord Dan kom je toch nooit aan een totale lengte van 54cm?

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 15:36:

Dag Hilde,

Als er verder niets bij staat, dan meet je vanaf de opzetrand. Maar soms staat er bij dat je vanaf een bepaald punt moet meten, bijvoorbeeld vanaf de scheiding van de mouwen en het lijf. Ik vermoed dat je het laatste bedoelt.

Bente 09.03.2019 - 13:04:

I denne opskrift er der en fejl i længemålet. Der står, at der i blusen længden fra delingen til ærmegabet skal strikke 24 cm . Dette mål kommer ikke til at passe med det færdige mål fra skulderen og ned. Hvis man i stedet strikker 30-31-31-31-31 cm + 4 cm ribbort får blusen den rette længde
