EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge vertically = 2 rounds, i.e. purl 1 round and knit 1 round.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches to be decreased/increased over (e.g. 96 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases/increases to be done (e.g. 8) = 12.
In this example decrease by knitting every 11th and 12th stitch together.
When increasing evenly make 1 yarn over after every 12th stitch. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
Because of the ridges in garter stitch the yoke will contract vertically when places flat, measurements should be done when the garment is held up, or lightly pull while measuring. If the yoke is too short continue pattern as before (without increasing.)

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked, knit 2 (marker is in the middle of these stitches), knit the next 2 stitches together.
----------------------------------------------------------

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. After yoke work body in the round on circular needle. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

YOKE:
Cast on 96-100-104-112-120-124 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 with Sky. Work 4 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Work 1 round in stockinette stitch while decreasing 8-8-8-12-12-12 stitches evenly - read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 88-92-96-100-108-112 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm = US 8. Insert 1 marker here - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
On next round start the pattern and increase for raglan as follows:
(Beginning of round is mid back.) Work 5-6-7-8-9-10 stitches in stockinette stitch (= half back piece), 1 yarn over, purl 16 (= ridge, begin first round with purl), 1 yarn over, work 2-2-2-2-4-4 stitches in stockinette stitch (= sleeve), 1 yarn over, purl 16 (= ridge), 1 yarn over, work 10-12-14-16-18-20 stitches in stockinette stitch (= front piece), 1 yarn over, purl 16 (= ridge),1 yarn over, work 2-2-2-2-4-4 stitches in stockinette stitch (= sleeve), 1 yarn over, purl 16 (= ridge), 1 yarn over and work 5-6-7-8-9-10 stitches in stockinette stitch (= half back piece) until mid back. Knit 1 round, work yarn overs twisted (= the increased stitches are worked in stockinette stitch).
First increase for raglan is now done (= 8 stitches increased on round). Continue with stockinette stitch / garter stitch and increase 1 stitch on each side of the 16 stitches in garter stitch between sleeves and body, and increase every other round 25-27-29-32-34-36 times in total (including first increase explained above).
After last increase for raglan there are 288-308-328-356-380-400 stitches on needle.
Yoke should measure 20-22-23-26-27-29 cm = 8”-8 3/4”-9”-10 1/4”-10 5/8”-11 3/8” from marker - READ KNITTING TIP!

Work next round as follows: Work 30-33-36-40-43-46 stitches in stockinette stitch, 12-11-11-12-14-14 stitches in garter stitch (= half back piece), slip the next 60-66-70-74-76-80 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work in garter stitch over the next 12-11-11-12-14-14 stitches, work in stockinette stitch over the next 60-66-72-80-86-92 stitches, work 12-11-11-12-14-14 stitches in garter stitch (= front piece), slip the next 60-66-70-74-76-80 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work 12-11-11-12-14-14 stitches in garter stitch, work in stockinette stitch over the last 30-33-36-40-43-46 stitches (= half back piece). Finish body and sleeves separately.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 184-192-208-228-252-264 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches that were cast on under sleeve in each side. Begin round at one of the marker threads and move the marker threads when working.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue in the round with stockinette stitch and in garter stitch over stitches in the side (= the stitches in garter stitch left on each side of front/back piece and the new stitches cast on under sleeve), AT THE SAME TIME on every other round make 1 yarn over on the outside of each section in garter stitch towards mid front and mid back as before (= 4 stitches increased in total on round) and decrease 2 stitches in the middle of each section in garter stitch by working the middle 4 stitches together 2 by 2 (= 4 stitches decreased in total on round). Increase/decrease like this until there are only 8 stitches in garter stitch in each side of garment. NOTE: Number of stitches on round will stay the same but stitches in garter stitch will gradually disappear and there will be more stitches in stockinette stitch.
Continue in stockinette stitch and 8 stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 23-23-24-23-24-25 cm = 9”-9”-9 1/2”-9”-9 1/2”-9 3/4” from division (approx. 48-50-52-54-56-59 cm = 19”-19 3/4"-20 1/2"-21 1/4"-22"-23 1/4” from shoulder). Switch to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and work in garter stitch for 6 cm = 2 3/8”. Loosely bind off. Sweater measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-65 cm = 21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/2” from shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 60-66-70-74-76-80 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on circular needle/double pointed needles size 5 mm = US 9 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 68-74-80-84-88-92 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve and begin round here.
Continue in the round with stockinette stitch and in garter stitch over stitches on the underside of sleeve (= the garter stitches that are on sleeve and the new stitches cast on under sleeve), AT THE SAME TIME on every other round make 1 yarn over on the outside of each section in garter stitch as before (= 2 stitches increased in total on round) and decrease 2 stitches in the middle of each section in garter stitch by working the middle 4 stitches together 2 by 2 (= 2 stitches decreased in total on round). NOTE: Number of stitches will stay the same on round but stitches in garter stitch will gradually disappear and there will be more stitches in stockinette stitch. Increase/decrease like this until there are no more stitches in garter stitch left, and then continue in stockinette stitch over all stitches. Now decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th-5th-4th-4th-4th-4th round 13-15-17-18-18-19 times in total = 42-44-46-48-50-54 stitches. Work until sleeve measures 37-36-35-33-32-31 cm = 14 1/2”-14 1/4”-13 3/4”-13”-12 1/2”-12 1/4” from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke). Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm = US 6 and work 6 cm = 2 3/8” in garter stitch.
Sleeve measures approx. 43-42-41-39-38-37 cm = 17”-16 1/2”-16 1/8-15 1/4”-15”-14 1/2” from division. Loosely bind off. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Gibt es diese Anleitung auch für Kindergrößen? Ich würde ihn gerne für 5-7 Jahre nachstricken. vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 16:02:

Liebe Anne, dieses Modell wird nicht für Kindergrößen erhältlich, hier finden Sie alle Pullover für Kinder. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Julia 14.03.2019 - 20:54:

Hello! Pattern is great, thank you! Just a small question: (for the size M) if the yoke is 22 cm, and the body from division is 24 cm, plus 6 cm in garter stitch — in total it is only 52 cm, not 56 as written. Looks like the body should be 28 cm instead of 24. Or I miss something?

DROPS Design 15.03.2019 kl. 08:45:

Dear Julian, there are 6 cm bottom edge + 23 cm body from division + 22 cm yoke + 2 cm neck edge + 3 cm shoulder = 56 cm. Happy knitting!

Kristina 06.03.2019 - 18:18:

Hej, jag får inte ihop mönstret efter oket. Jag har 308 maskor som jag nu ska fördela på fram- och bakstycket. Det står att jag ska sticka 31 m slät och 13m rätstickning, men jag får det till 33m fram till rätstickningen, vad är fel?

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 14:13:

Hei Kristina. Det er lagt inn en rettelse på denne oppskriften (1 mars), og du skal altså strikke 33 masker glattstrikk, 11 masker retstrikning (= halve baskstykket). Om du har printet ut oppskriften før 1 mars vil ikke denne rettelsen være med, men oppskirften som ligger online er korrekt. God fornøyelse

Gudrun 05.03.2019 - 10:27:

Kann ich diesen Pullover auch mit einem Garn der Gruppe A (BabyAlpaka Silk) stricken?

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 11:43:

Liebe Gudrun, dieser Pullover wird mit Sky gestrickt, dh mit einem Garn der Garngruppe B und kann jedoch nicht mit einem Garn der Garngruppe A gestrickt werden. Benutzen Sie unseren Garnumrechner um die unterschiedlichen Möglichkeiten zu sehen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Despoina 27.02.2019 - 13:31:

Yes, i can now understand the pattern. 27 rows are for the increases only, giving a total of 54 rows!! My mistake here.

Despoina 23.02.2019 - 14:22:

I have completed the first part with the increases, ending with 308 stitches (M). I measured my work, from yoke, and it's 10cm from marker. Should I continue my work, without increases until it measures 22cm?

DROPS Design 25.02.2019 kl. 08:33:

Dear Despoina, what about your tension? You should have 19 sts x 25 rows in height = 10 x 10 cm. You increase for the raglan every other row a total of 27 times, ie 54 rows which should be ca 22 cm. You are not supposed to have finished the increases after 10 cm from marker to get the right shape as on the picture. Happy knitting!

Eva 21.02.2019 - 11:15:

Ich bin gerade mit meiner Passe in Gr M fertig. Die Aufteilung danach irritiert mich etwas. Bei der passe wurden 16 Maschen kraus rechts gestrickt, jetzt soll ich bei Gr M 13 Maschen kraus rechts stricken, 8 neu aufnehmen, 13 Maschen kraus rechts. Warum 13 Maschen und keine 16?

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 11:39:

Liebe Eva, die 3 letzten der 16 Kraus rechts Maschen werden zusammen mit den Maschen für den Ärmel + die 3 ersten der nächsten 16 Kraus rechts Maschen für den Ärmel stillegelegt. Für das Armloch (unter den Ärmel) werden dann 8 M angeschlagen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Nica 13.02.2019 - 10:47:

Buongiorno, credo che nella spiegazione ci sia un errore. Dopo che sul ferro ci sono 308 maglie, per la taglia M, occorre lavorare: 33 m rasate, 13 legaccio, 62 sospese per manica, 13 legaccio, 66 rasate, 13 legaccio 62 sospese, 13 legaccio. ;)

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 12:17:

Buongiorno Nica. Chiederemo alla casa madre di verificare e di correggere. La ringraziamo per la segnalazione. Buon lavoro!

Nica 11.02.2019 - 20:33:

Buonasera, sto lavorando a questo splendido modello con il filato Puna taglia M. Ho finito gli aumenti e mi ritrovo con questa situazione: 33-16-56-16-66-16-56-16-33=308 maglie. La spiegazione mi dice di lavorare 31 m rasata, 13 m legaccio ecc, ma ho 2 m rasate che non so come lavorare. Rileggendo le indicazioni le maglie rasate cento/dietro devono aumentare. Attendo cortesemente chiarimenti. Grazie.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 21:45:

Buonasera Nica, quando ha 308 maglie deve lavorare come segue: 31 maglie a maglia rasata, 13 maglie a legaccio, mettere in sospeso 66 e avviare 8 maglie sotto la manica, 13 maglie a legaccio, 62 maglie a maglia rasata, 13 maglie a legaccio, mettere in sospeso 66 maglie, avviare 8 maglie sotto la manica, 13 maglie a legaccio, 31 maglie a maglia rasata. Quali sono le 2 maglie che non tornano? Buon lavoro!

Despoina 11.02.2019 - 08:44:

When I mentioned below that “the 16 garter stitch should be stable” I wasn’t describing what I meant very clear. I wanted to ask if the 16 st (garter) is stable on the YOKE part only. Until the part that says “Yoke should measure 20-22-23-26-27-29 cm = 8”-8 3/4”-9”-10 1/4”-10 5/8”-11 3/8” from marker”. So, increases should be make before and after the garter st. I’m very sorry, but it would be very helpful if there was a diagram for the pattern.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 11:12:

Dear Despoina, sorry for the misunderstanding. As for the yoke, you are right, the 16 stitches knitted with garter stitch is constant, all increes should be done before and after these stitches. Happy Kniting!
