EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:
-------------------------------------------------------

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 72 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 17) = 4.2. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 4th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

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, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits in the 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:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. It is divided for body and sleeves; the body is continued in the round with circular needle and the sleeves in the round with short circular needle, double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 62-66-70-76-82 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and heather/cerise/dark red. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Knit 1 round where you increase 16-18-20-22-23 stitches evenly on round - READ INCREASE TIP-1! = 78-84-90-98-105 stitches.
Purl 1 round. Insert a marker in this round and measure onwards from here. On the next round work according to diagram A.1, (choose diagram for the right size) a total of 13-14-15-14-15 times on the round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When diagram A.1 has been completed in height there are 208-224-240-252-270 stitches on the needle. On the next round increase 4-4-6-2-6 stitches evenly = 212-228-246-254-276 stitches.
Continue with stocking stitch until the piece measures 15-15-16-17-18 cm from the marker.
The next round is worked as follows: Place the first 44-48-51-53-62 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 6 new stiches, knit 62-66-72-74-76 (= front piece), place the next 44-48-51-53-62 stitches on a thread (= the other sleeve), cast on 6 new stitches and knit 62-66-72-74-76 stitches.

BODY:
There are 136-144-156-160-164 stitches on the round.
THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6 new stitches cast on under each sleeve. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 3 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads (= 4 stitches increased) READ INCREASE TIP–2! Repeat the increase every 3-4-5-6-7 cm a total of 3 times = 148-156-168-172-176 stitches on the needle. Continue working as before until the piece measures 12-16-19-22-25 cm. Work 1 round where you increase 12-12-12-12-12 stitches evenly = 160-168-180-184-188 stitches. Work rib in the round with knit 2 / purl 2 for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Cut and fasten the strand.

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from one thread on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm (= 44-48-51-53-62 stitches) and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6 stitches cast on under the sleeve (= 50-54-57-59-68 stitches). Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches. Work stocking stitch in the round for 2 cm. Now decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread - READ DECREASE TIP. Continue with stocking stitch and repeat the decrease every 4-3½-4-4-3½ cm until you have decreased a total of 5-7-7-8-10 times = 40-40-43-43-48 stitches on the round. Work stocking stitch until the sleeve measures 22-27-30-34-37 cm. Work 1 round and increase 4-4-5-5-4 stitches evenly on this round = 44-44-48-48-52 stitches. Work rib in the round with knit 2 / purl 2 for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Cut and fasten strand.

Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= knit with off white
= knit with mustard/goldenrod/yellow
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round work the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole
= on this round increases are made in the middle of the diagram, so pay extra attention so that the pattern is correct when working the next rows

Tolle Anleitung - der Pulli ging wirklich gut von den Nadeln...

Como puedo tejerlo con dos agujas ?

DROPS Design 29.06.2019 kl. 00:19:

Hola Pamela. El raglan o el canesú redondo son más complicados de adaptar a agujas rectas. Se puede tejer el cuerpo y las mangas por separado de ida y vuelta, pero la parte de canesu tiene que trabajarse con una aguja circular.

Sono riuscita da sola, ma direi che il disegno del diagramma - dopo la riga con gli aumenti al centro - non è chiaro e confonde. Grazie.

Maria 24.04.2019 - 14:22:

Dopo la riga con l\'aumento al centro del diagramma, non riesco a proseguire correttamente con il motivo jacquard. \r\nNon mi tornano i conti: a ogni lato del punto color panna al centro, dovrei avere 5 punti color Erika. Ma così facendo,non mi viene il motivo giusto.\r\nPotete aiutarmi spiegandomi meglio come deve essere lo sviluppo della riga?\r\nGrazie molte.
