EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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. Diagrams show all rounds in pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 72 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 17) = 4.2.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

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

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

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

YOKE:
Cast on 62-66-70-76-82 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with Sky. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 round while increasing 16-18-20-22-23 stitches evenly on round - READ INCREASE TIP! = 78-84-90-98-105 stitches.
Purl 1 round. Insert a marker in this round and measure from here. On next round work according to diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size) 13-14-15-14-15 times on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When digram A.1 has been worked vertically, there are 208-224-240-252-270 stitches on round. On next round increase 4-4-2-2-4 stitches evenly on round = 212-228-242-254-274 stitches.
Then work in stocking stitch until piece measures approx. 15-15-16-17-18 cm from marker. Work next round as follows:
Knit 62-66-70-75-75 stitches (= back piece), slip the next 44-48-51-53-62 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 6 new stitches under the sleeve, knit 62-66-70-74-75 (= front piece), slip the next 44-48-51-53-62 stitches on a new stitch holder (= the other sleeve) and cast on 6 new stitches under sleeve.

BODY:
There are now 136-144-152-160-162 stitches on round. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6 new stitches cast on. Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 3 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of each marker (= 4 stitches increased) - read INCREASE TIP-2! Repeat increase every 3-4½-5½-6½-7½ cm 3 times in total = 148-156-164-172-174 stitches on round. Then work as before until piece measures approx. 15-17-20-23-26 cm (or to desired length, there is approx. 2 cm until finished measurements). Work in garter stitch for 2 cm. Loosely cast off. Cut and fasten the yarn.

SLEEVE:
Slip stitches from on stitch holder back on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm (= 44-48-51-53-62 stitches), pick up 1 stitch in each of the 6 stitches cast on on body (= 50-54-57-59-68 stitches). Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 6 stitches. Work in stocking stitch in the round until sleeve measures 3 cm. Now decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread - read DECREASE TIP! Continue in stocking stitch and repeat decrease every 4-4-4-4-3½ cm until decrease has been done 5-6-7-8-10 times in total = 40-42-43-43-48 stitches on needle. Work in stocking stitch until sleeve measures 23-28-31-35-38 cm in total.
Work in garter stitch for 2 cm. Loosely cast off. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Work the other sleeve the same way.

Hola, estoy tejiendo este precioso jersey en la talla 7/8, a partir de la sisa dice tejer hasta que la pieza mida aprox 20 cm. Tejer en punto musgo durante 2 cm. Rematar flojo. Me parece un poco corto, es correcta la medida?. He comparado con otros patrones y hay una diferencia de unos 10 cm. Sin embargo los de canesú redondo suelen ser más cortos por lo que he visto.

Muito obrigada pela explicação e pelas receitas maravilhosas. :*

Ola. Parabéns pelo modelo, muito lindo. Tenho uma dúvida, quando você fala para repetir 15 vezes A.1 em largura, seria repetir 15 carreiras? Do 1 ao 15? De baixo O que seria repetir em largura? Muito obrigada.

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 15:28:

Deve começar pela 1.ª carreira de A.1 (que tem 7 malhas). Tricota as 7 malhas do diagrama, depois, volta a tricotar as 7 malhas do mesmo diagrama e assim sucessivamente, até ter repetido as malhas da 1.ª carreira do diagrama 15 vezes. Bom Tricô!

Hallo Drops-Team,\r\n\r\nerstmal vielen Dank für die tollen Anleitungen für Groß und Klein.\r\n\r\nJetzt der eigentliche Kommentar: die Anleitung ist einfach geschrieben und das Endergebnis ist toll. Habe nur ein kleines Problem mit dem Abschluss in kraus rechts. Der klappt sich immer um. Gibt\'s da einen Trick damit der Rand glatt bleibt?
