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

EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge vertically = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the number of stitches decreases are done over (e.g. 25 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 3) = 8.3. 
In this example decrease by working approx. every 7th and 8th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked back and forth in several pieces and sewn together when finished. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 101-113-125-137-149-161 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Purl 1 row from wrong side. Then work rib as follows: 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH – read explanation above, purl 1, (knit 3, purl 3) over the next 18-24-30-36-42-48 stitches, A.1a over the next 29 stitches, A.2a over the next 28 stitches, (purl 3, knit 3) over the next 18-24-30-36-42-48 stitches, purl 1, 3 stitches in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until the first 8 rows in diagrams have been worked vertically. Work next row as follows: 3 stitches in garter stitch, purl the next 19-25-31-37-43-49 stitches and decrease at the same time 0-3-6-8-8-9 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP, work next to last row in A.1a and A.2b, purl the next 19-25-31-37-43-49 stitches and decrease at the same time 0-3-6-8-8-9 stitches evenly, 3 stitches in garter stitch = 88-94-100-108-120-130 stitches. Work next row from wrong side with 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side, work last row in A.1a and A.2a and stocking stitch with wrong side out (= knit from wrong side) over the remaining stitches.
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm.
Now work in the different sizes as follows: In size S and M work from next section below (skip the rest of this section). Continue as follows in size L, XL, XXL and XXXL work first pattern as follows: 3 stitches in garter stitch, purl 25-29-35-40, A.1b over the next 22 stitches, A.2b over the next 22 stitches, purl 25-29-35-40, 3 stitches in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until piece measures 5-5-6-6 cm in total from cast-on edge, adjust so that next row is worked from right side.

All sizes:
Now work pattern as follows: 3 stitches in garter stitch, purl 1-4-7-11-17-22, A.3a over the next 40 stitches, A.4a over the next 40 stitches, purl 1-4-7-11-17-22, 3 stitches in garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 17 cm, cast on 1 new stitch at the end of the next 2 rows for edge stitch (this marks the vent) = 90-96-102-110-122-132 stitches. Work the new stitch in each side in garter stitch (= 4 stitches in garter stitch in each side). When A.3a and A.4a have been worked vertically, continue with A.3b over A.3a and A.4b over A.4a 2 times in total vertically. When piece measures 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm, cast off 2-4-5-5-6-7 stitches for armholes at the beginning of the next 2 rows = 86-88-92-100-110-118 stitches. Continue with the pattern as before and work the outermost 3 stitches in each side in garter stitch. When A.3b and A.4b have been worked vertically 2 times, work A.3c over A.3b and A.4c over A.4b, then work knit over knit and purl over purl until finished measurements. At the same time when piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm, cast off the middle 36-36-38-38-40-40 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then on next row from neck cast off 1 stitch (1 stitch is also decreased in diagram A.3c/A.4c) = 23-24-25-29-33-37 stitches. When piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm, cast off all stitches. Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work pattern the same way as back piece. Cast off stitches for armholes as on back piece = 86-88-92-100-110-118 stitches. When A.3b and A.4.b have been worked vertically 2 times, work A.3c over A.3b and A.4c over A.4b, then work knit over knit and purl over purl until finished measurements. At the same time when piece measures 53-54-56-57-59-60 cm, slip the middle 20-20-20-20-22-22 stitches on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then cast off stitches on every row from neck as follows: Cast off 4 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 3-3-4-4-4-4 times (decrease in addition 1 stitch in diagram A.3c/A.4c) = 23-24-25-29-33-37 stitches. When piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm, cast off all stitches. Work the other shoulder the same way.

SLEEVES:
Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle in stocking stitch with right side outwards.
Cast on 36-36-42-42-42-48 stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm. Knit 1 round. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round and move it upwards when working. Work rib (knit 3/purl 3) for 4 cm. * Knit 2, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* in the round on round = 54-54-63-63-63-72 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm. Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 14 cm, increase 2 stitches under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this approx. every 14-9-0-10-8-14 cm 2-4-1-3-4-2 times in total = 58-62-65-69-71-76 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch until sleeve measures 47-46-45-44-41-40 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Now continue back and forth (this is done to make it possible to sew the sleeve to where stitches were cast off for armhole on body). When sleeve measures 52-52-52-51-49-48 cm, cast off all stitches. Work another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams inside cast-off edge. Sew sleeves in body with stocking stitch (right side) sew inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on body and inside cast-off edge on sleeve. Sew seam under sleeves and down the side on body down to where 1 stitch was cast on (= approx. 17 cm vent). Repeat in the other side.

NECK EDGE:
Begin at the top in the middle on one shoulder and pick up 108-108-114-114-120-120 stitches from right side with 1 strand of each quality ( = 2 strands) on circular needle size 4 mm. Work rib (knit 3/purl 3) for 3 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on next row (from wrong side) knit or purl yarn over - see next row in diagram - it should make holes
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on next row (from wrong side) knit or purl yarn over twisted - see next row in diagram - it should not make holes
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over
= purl 2 together
= knit 3 together (= 2 stitches decreased)
= slip 1 stitch off the needle knitwise (= 1 stitch is moved on to right needle), slip stitch back on left needle twisted and knit 3 twisted together (= 2 stitches decreased)
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over (= 2 stitches decreased)
= purl 3 together (= 2 stitches decreased)
= this square is not a stitch because stitch was decreased earlier, go directly to next symbol in diagram

In de uitleg staat volgens mij een fout. Bij het Achterpand staat (boord naald 9) :brei de volgende tot de laatste naald in A.1a en A.2b, Volgens mij moet dit zijn A.1a en A.2a.

Silvia 04.02.2019 - 15:10:

Posso fare questo modello con i ferri dritti? Se la risposta è si, vorrei chiedervi come devo regolarmi per i diagrammi...considero sempre che rappresentano il diritto del lavoro e quindi quando lavoro il rovescio devo cambiare i punti ? Grazie mille

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 15:50:

Buongiorno Silvia, come può leggere nelle spiegazioni questo modello è lavorato in piano in parti separate e poi cucito alla fine, per cui può lavorarlo con i ferri dritti seguendo le istruzioni. Buon lavoro!

Sarah 29.01.2019 - 08:54:

Bonjour, je souhaiterais tricoter ce modèle en employant le coloris Bruyère pour le Kid Silk. Pouvez-vous m'indiquer quelle est la couleur correspondante pour l'alpaga ? c'est difficile à voir sur l'ordinateur. merci et bonne journée

Tanja 28.01.2019 - 21:36:

"die vorletzte Reihe von A.1a und A.2b stricken" Dieser Part enthält einen Fehler. Es muss heißen A.1a und A.2a. Wunderschönes Modell! Ich bin gerade an dieser Stelle. :-)

Sylvie 24.01.2019 - 19:24:
