JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked back and forth. Finish front and back piece separately. Work sleeves back and forth on needle.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 78-84-90-96-108-114 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) on circular needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Work first row as follows from right side: Work 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read explanation above, * knit 1, purl 2 together *, work from *-* until 2 stitches remain, finish with knit 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 53-57-61-65-73-77 stitches. Then work as follows from wrong side (read diagram from left towards right): Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 until 1 stitch remains and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. I.e. pattern begins and ends with 1 knit stitch in false English rib inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side of piece, seen from right side. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 72-74-76-78-80-82 cm (approx. 4 cm remain), cast off the middle 19-19-19-23-23-23 stitches for neck with knit over knit and purl over purl (1 yarn over and 1 knit stitch = 1 stitch) = 17-19-21-21-25-27 stitches on each shoulder. Stitch closest to the neck on each shoulder should now be a purl stitch from right side. Now finish each shoulder separately.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
Work pattern as before 1 stitch in garter stitch closest to the neck until piece measures 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm in total. Cast off on next row from right side. Knit together yarn overs and knit stitches while casting off and purl the purl stitches while casting off.

LEFT SHOULDER:
Work as right shoulder.

FRONT PIECE:
Work as back piece until piece measures 66-68-68-70-70-72 cm (approx. 10-10-12-12-14-14 cm remain).
On next row from right side cast off the middle 11-11-11-15-15-15 stitches for neck with knit over knit and purl over purl (1 yarn over and 1 knit stitch = 1 stitch) = 21-23-25-25-29-31 stitches on each shoulder.
Stitch closest to the neck on each shoulder should now be a purl stitch from right side. Now finish each shoulder separately.

RIGHT SHOULDER:
On next row from the neck (= right side) work as follows: Work 1 stitch in garter stitch, slip yarn over and 1 stitch off the needle as if to knit together, purl 1, pass yarn over and stitch over stitch worked (= 1 stitch decreased), work the rest of row as before. Decrease like this on every row from right side 4 times in total = 17-19-21-21-25-27 stitches. Work until piece measures 76-78-80-82-84-86 cm in total. On next row from right side cast off. Knit together yarn overs and knit stitches while casting off and purl the purl stitches while casting off.

LEFT SHOULDER:
Work as right shoulder by decrease for neck at the end of every row from right side as follows: Work as before until 3 stitches remain (yarn over is not counted as stitch), knit purl stitch, yarn over and knit stitch together (= 1 stitch decreased) and finish with 1 stitch in garter stitch.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 35-35-38-38-41-41 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm with Eskimo.
Work first row as follows from right side: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 2 together *, work from *-* until 1 stitch remains, finish 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 24-24-26-26-28-28 stitches. Then work as follows from wrong side (read diagram from left towards right): Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 until 1 stitch remains and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this until piece measures 10 cm, adjust to finish with last row from right side. Now work piece in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side of piece. When piece measures 12 cm, increase 1 stitch inside 1 edge stitch and 1 stitch in each side of piece - read INCREASE TIP! Increase like this every 4-3½-3½-3-2½-2 cm 8-9-9-10-10-11 times in total = 40-42-44-46-48-50 stitches. Cast off when piece measures 45-44-43-42-38-37 cm. Knit another sleeve the same way.

POCKETS:
Cast on 20 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side of piece) on circular needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Work in stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side of piece. When pocket measures 15 cm, increase 5 stitches evenly on next row from right side = 25 stitches. Knit yarn overs twisted on next row to avoid holes! Work as follows on next row from wrong side: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * purl 1, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* until 2 stitches remain, purl 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue with knit over knit, purl over purl and garter stitch over garter stitch until piece measures 18 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work another pocket the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves (= approx. 19-20-21-22-23-24 cm down from shoulder seams) and sew sleeve seams and side seams inside 1 edge stitch until approx. 17 cm remain (= vent). Sew on pockets approx. 17 cm from bottom edge and approx. 2 cm in from each side.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up approx. 44 to 56 stitches along neck edge (make sure to avoid a tight edge, pick up more stitches if needed), adjust so that number of stitches is divisible by 2. Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1). Work 2 rounds in total, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Varför är beskrivningen så jävla omständig??? Kan vara en fördel att skriva hur varven ska stickas!!!

Knallfin lang genser. Lurer på om garnet klør ?

DROPS Design 25.02.2019 kl. 14:53:

Hei Anita. Eskimo er 100% ull. Det er litt individuelt hvor "sensitiv" man er for kløe i ullgarn, men i utgangspunktet er ikke Eskimo et stikkete garn. Om du likevel vil strikke i noe annet kan du vurdere Andes, som har samme strikkefasthet. Dette garnet inneholder 35% Alpakka, som har tynnere fibre enn saueull (og derfor klør mindre). Vær obs på at Andes har en noe annet tekstur enn Eskimo. God fornøyelse

Kan jeg strikke denne genseren med big merino?? Så ikke det klør

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 13:41:

hei Tone. Det som er viktig ved bytte av garn er at strikkefastheten din blir den samme som den som står i oppskriften. Du kan nok bruke Big Merino til denne, men da må du strikke med 2 tråder for å få tilsvarende strikkefasthet som i Eskimo. Lag deg en prøvelapp så du er sikker. God fornøyelse
