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




Work front and back piece back and forth on circular needle. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles, switch to short circular needle when needed.

Cast on 78-86-90-98-106-114 stitches on needles size 5 mm = US 8 with Big Delight. Knit 1 row. Then work rib as follows: 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 2 and purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain. Knit 2 and work 2 stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this until piece measures 7 cm = 2 3/4”. Switch to needle size 6 mm = US 10 and work 1 row in stockinette stitch while decreasing 10-12-10-10-10-8 stitches evenly = 68-74-80-88-96-106 stitches. Then work in stockinette stitch until piece measures 31-32-33-35-36-37 cm = 12 1/4”-12 1/2”-13”-13 3/4”-14 1/4”-14 1/2”, bind off 1 stitch at the beginning of the next 2 rows (sleeves are sewn in here). Continue in stockinette stitch until piece measures 43-45-47-49-51-53 cm = 17”-17 3/4”-18 1/2”-19 1/4”-20”-21”. Knit 1 row from right side and increase 10-12-10-10-10-8 stitches evenly (increase with yarn overs) = 76-84-88-96-104-112 stitches. Purl 1 row from wrong side, purl yarn overs from previous row twisted to avoid holes. Change to needles size 5 mm = US 8 and work rib as before but only 1 stitch in garter stitch in each side until rib measures 7 cm = 2 3/4” in all sizes. Piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm = 19 3/4"-20 1/2"-21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8" in total. Bind off by knitting.

Work as on front piece.

Cast on 28-32-32-36-36-40 stitches on double pointed needles size 5 mm = US 8. Work rib in the round with knit 2 and purl 2 until piece measures 5 cm = 2”. Switch to double pointed needles size 6 mm = US 10.
Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). Continue in stockinette stitch. When sleeve measures 7 cm = 2 3/4” in all sizes, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker, increase by making 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Repeat increase every 2½-2½-2½-2½-2½-2 cm = 1”-1”-1”-1”-1”-3/4” 15-14-16-14-15-15 times in total = 58-60-64-64-66-70 stitches. Continue until piece measures 51-50-49-47-45-43 cm = 20”-19 3/4”-19 1/4”-18 1/2”-17 3/4”-17” (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders). Bind off by knitting.

Sew shoulder seam, leave approx. 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm = 10 1/4”-10 5/8”-11”-11 3/8”-11 3/4”-12 1/4” in the middle for neck. Sew in sleeves, start where 1 stitch was bind off in each side on front and back piece and sew inside 1 stitch. Sew side seams inside stitch in each side.

Con qué fin se aumenta un poco antes del canalé del cuello?

DROPS Design 18.05.2019 kl. 19:48:

Hola Pilar. Para que la cenefa del elástico en el escote no quede muy tensa (muy estirada), aumentamos varios puntos (dependiendo de la talla).

Con qué fin se aumenta un poco antes de hacer el canale del cuello?

DROPS Design 18.05.2019 kl. 19:48:

Hola Pilar, mira la respuesta justo arriba.

Buen día. Me envían medidas según talle de Jersey para mujer. Gracias. Saludos

Hola Miriham. No hacemos envíos personalizados. Bajo cada patrón puedes encontrar un diagrama con las medidas de la prenda. Si tienes que elegir entre dos medidas recomendamos elegir la talla más grande. También es importante trabajar con la misma tensión del tejido.

Kann ich diesen Pullover auch in Runden stricken und erst ab Ärmel in Vorder- und Rückenteil aufteilen? Wieviele Maschen muss ich anschlagen? Anzahl Maschen Vorderteil + Abzahl Maschen Rückenteil? Oder wurden Randmaschen bzw. Maschen für‘s Zusammennähen berücksichtigt, die beim Stricken in Runden entfallen?

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 15:41:

Liebe Nina, wenn Sie in Runden bis Ärmel stricken möchten, brauchen Sie die beide Randmaschen beim Vorder- bzw Rückenteil nicht, und können dann 2 M für jedem Teil weniger anschlagen. Diese Maschen sollen Sie dann anschlagen, wenn die beiden Teilen verteilt sind (für das Zusammennähen), anstatt diese Maschen abzuketten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
