EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

STRIPES:
The stripes have different widths in the different sizes.
The order and length of stripes is:
STRIPE 1: work with light jeans blue for 7-8-8½-9½-10 cm.
STRIPE 2: work with light lilac for 7-8-8½-9½-10 cm.
STRIPE 3: work with heather for 7-8-8½-9½-10 cm.
STRIPE 4: work with light sea green for 7-8-8½-9½-10 cm.
STRIPE 5: work with jeans blue to finished length in all sizes.

INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 148 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 24) = 6.2. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 6th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the 4 markers as follows: Start 2 stitches before the stitch with the marker and make 1 yarn over, knit 5 (the marker sits in the middle of these 5 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased).
On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted 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 the middle of these 2 stitches), knit 2 together (= 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 sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles. The whole garment is worked in STRIPES – see description above.

YOKE:
Cast on 76-80-80-84-84 stitches with short circular needle size 4 mm and light jeans blue. Work 4 rounds of rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). The beginning of the round is mid-back of the jumper.
Now work 1 round in stocking stitch and insert 4 markers which will be used when increasing to raglan as follows: Work 12-13-13-14-14 stitches (= half back piece), work 1 stitch and insert 1 marker in this stitch, work 12 stitches (= sleeve), work 1 stitch and insert 1 marker in this stitch, work 24-26-26-28-28 stitches (= front piece), work 1 stitch and insert 1 marker in this stitch, work 12 stitches (= sleeve), work 1 stitch and insert 1 marker in this stitch, work 12-13-13-14-14 stitches (= half back piece). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue with stocking stitch and stripes as before and increase to RAGLAN – see description above. NOTE! The increases are different on body and sleeves, so pay attention while increasing.
First increase as follows:

INCREASE AS FOLLOWS ON FRONT/BACK PIECE/ SLEEVES: 
Increase 2 stitches to raglan at each of the 4 markers as described above (= 8 stitches increased on round): Increase every 2nd round 11-12-12-12-12 times. There are now 46-50-50-52-52 stitches on front/back piece, 34-36-36-36-36 stitches on each sleeve and 4 stitches with markers. A total of 164-176-176-180-180 stitches on the round.

Then increase every 2nd round on front/back piece AT THE SAME TIME as you now increase on every 4th round on sleeves as follows:

INCREASE AS FOLLOWS ON FRONT/BACK PIECE:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of each front and back piece (= 4 stitches increased on round): Increase every 2nd round 10-10-12-12-14 times. You have increased a total of 21-22-24-24-26 times on the front and back pieces and have a total of 66-70-74-76-80 stitches on each front and back piece.

INCREASE AS FOLLOWS ON SLEEVES:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of each sleeve (= 4 stitches increased on round): Increase every 4th round 5-5-6-6-7 times. You have increased a total of 16-17-18-18-19 times on the sleeves and have 44-46-48-48-50 stitches on each one.

After all the increases there are 224-236-248-252-264 stitches on the round. Work until the piece measures 16-16-18-18-19 cm from the cast-on edge mid back.
The next round is worked as follows: Knit the first 34-36-38-39-41 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 44-46-48-48-50 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8 new stitches (= in side under sleeve), knit the next 68-72-76-78-82 stitches (= front piece), place the next 44-46-48-48-50 stitches on a thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8 new stitches (= in side under sleeve), knit the next 34-36-38-39-41 stitches (half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY: 
There are 148-156-164-172-180 stitches on the needle. Continue with stocking stitch and stripes in the round as before. When the piece measures 17-21-23-27-30 cm from the division work 1 round where you increase 24-28-28-32-32 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 172-184-192-204-212 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work rib (knit 2/ purl 2) until the piece measures 21-35-27-31-34 cm from the division. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Cut and fasten the strand. The jumper measures approx. 40-44-48-52-56 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the one thread on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm (= 44-46-48-48-50 stitches) and knit up 1 new stitch in each of the 6 new stitches on the body (= 50-52-54-55-58 stitches). Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 new stitches. Work stocking stitch and stripes in the round as before for 3 cm. Now decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread - READ DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 2-3-3-3½-4 cm until you have decreased a total of 7-7-8-9-9 times = 36-38-38-38-40 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch and stripes until the sleeve measures 20-24-27-32-36 cm. Work 1 round where you increase 8-6-10-10-12 evenly on round = 44-44-48-48-52 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 4 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Cut and fasten the strand.

Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Pensez-vous que c’est possible de faire un col plus long afin d’avoir un col roulé avec ce modèle?

DROPS Design 23.07.2019 kl. 19:20:

Bonjour Melissa! Bien sur. Si vous voulez avoir un col montant, tricotez en côtes (= 2 mailles endroit / 2 mailles envers). Si le col doit etre roule (p. ex. DROPS Extra 0-904), tricotez plutot le point jersey. Bon tricot!

Kathi 05.06.2019 - 21:57:

Ich habe eine Frage zu den Zunahmen an Vorder-/Rückenteil und den Ärmeln: Bei 4 Maschen pro Runde in jeder 2. Runde 10x, ergibt es je 20 Maschen pro Vorder-/Rückenteil. Ebenso bei den Ärmeln müssen es insgesamt 20 Maschen (10 je Ärmel = 4 Maschen pro Runde 5x) sein oder? Die Angaben 21 Maschen (für Vorder-/Rückenteil) und 16 Maschen bei den Ärmeln verwirren mich etwas. Wird weiterhin 2 Maschen vor der markierten Masche begonnen? LG

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 10:10:

Liebe Kathi, beim Rumpfteil nehmen Sie zuerst 11 Mal in jeder 2. Runde dann 10 Mal in jeder 2. Runde = 21 Mal insgesamt. Für die Ärmel nehmen Sie zuerst 11 Mal in jeder 2. Runde und dann 5 Mal in jeder 4. Runde = 16 Mal insgesamt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kathi 29.05.2019 - 07:58:

Woher weiß ich denn, wann ich mit den zunahmen für die Ärmel beginnen muss? Ich stricke die Größe für 3-4 Jahre. Ich bin aktuell bei der Passe, hab jeweils die Markierer gesetzt für die Raglanzunahmen und habe mit der zweiten Farbe angefangen.

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 08:35:

Liebe Kathi, in die 1. Größe nehmen Sie zuerst 8 M (= 2M an jeder der 4. Markierungen) in jeder 2. Runde 2 x, dann werden die Zunahmen an einem unterschiedlichen Rythmus bei Vorder/Rückenteil und bei den Ärmeln: Beim Vorder/Rückenteil nehmen Sie 2 M (= insg. 4) in jeder 2. Rd x 2 und bein den Ärmeln nehmen Sie 2 M (insg 4) in jeder 4. Rd x 5 = jetzt werden Sie abwechlungsweise in jeder 2. Rd nur 4 M zunehmen und in jeder 2. Rd (= in jeder 4. Rd) 8 M zunehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kathi 24.05.2019 - 20:46:

Werden die Raglanzunahmen in jeder Runde gemacht oder nur in jeder zweiten Runde und dazwischen eine Runde glatt rechts? Liebe Grüße, Kathi

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 10:01:

Liebe Kathi, die ersten 11-12 Zunahmen (siehe Größe) werden in jeder 2. Runde gestrickt (= 1 Rd mit Zunahmen, 1 Rd ohne Zunahmen), dann werden Sie in jeder 2. Runde beim Rumpfteil gestrickt und in jeder 4. Runde bei den Ärmeln (= 1 Rd mit Zunahmen, 3 Rd ohne Zunahmen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

CAILLARD Micheline 31.03.2019 - 18:36:

Bonjour, Le col en 2/2 et aig 4 comme indiqué est large. Pourquoi pas en aig 3,5 ? De plus les cotes en bas du tricot sont trop larges. Sinon le modèle me plaît pour ma petite fille Alice. C’est mon premier modèle avec cette façon de tricoter « up-down ». Merci. Cordialement.

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 14:00:

Bonjour Mme Caillard, on tricote probablement les côtes du col en 4 pour éviter qu'elles ne soient trop serrées. Les côtes du bas ne sont pas censées resserrer le pull, mais juste le terminer (les côtés sont droits, comme le montre le schéma, raison pour laquelle on augmente avant de tricoter les côtes). Bon tricot!
