EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 88 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 27) = 3.2. In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 3rd stitch. On the next row knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
When decreasing, knit together approx. each 2nd and 3rd stitch.

ELEVATION (back of neck):
To make the jumper slightly higher at the back of the neck when working the yoke, work an elevation as described here. Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Start from the right side, mid back and work with dark grey as follows: Knit 15-15-16-16-17-17 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 30-30-32-32-34-34 stitches back. Turn, tighten strand and knit 45-45-48-48-51-51 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 60-60-64-64-68-68 stitches back. Turn, tighten strand and knit 75-75-80-80-85-85 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl to mid back. Then work YOKE as described in the text.

PATTERN:
Jumper: See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size (A.2 applies only to sizes 2 years – this repeat is worked on the yoke in the other sizes).
Hat: See diagram A.3.
The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under 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 between these 2 stitches), knit 2 together (= 2 stitches decreased).

CASTING-OFF TIP:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with a larger needle size; or you can make 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch at the same time as casting off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck and yoke are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves and the body is continued in the round with circular needle. Sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 88-90-92-94-96-98 stitches with short circular needle size 2.5 mm and dark grey. Knit 1 round and then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 1) for 3 cm. Knit 1 round where you increase 27-30-33-31-34-37 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 115-120-125-125-130-135 stitches. Knit 1 round. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid back. Now you can work an ELEVATION in the back of the neck – read description above. If you do not want an elevation, go straight to yoke.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work A.1 in the round (= 23-24-25-25-26-27 repeats of 5 stitches). Continue this pattern and increase as shown in the diagram. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
On the round before the one marked with an arrow in A.1, there are 230-240-250-250-260-270 stitches on the needle.
On the round marked with an arrow in A.1, increase 10-20-22-30-36-38 stitches evenly spaced = 240-260-272-280-296-308 stitches.
When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. 14-16-16-16-16-16 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
Continue in the round with stocking stitch and grey until the piece measures 14-16-16-17-18-19 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
Now, on the next round, divide the yoke for body and sleeves as follows: Work 35-38-40-42-44-46 stitches in stocking stitch with grey (= ½ back piece), place the next 50-54-56-56-60-62 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 70-76-80-84-88-92 stitches in stocking stitch with grey (= front piece), place the next 50-54-56-56-60-62 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 35-38-40-42-44-46 stitches in stocking stitch with grey (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are continued separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 152-164-172-184-192-200 stitches. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 stitches under the one sleeve. Start the round at this marker and work A.2 in the round (applies only to sizes 2 years– this repeat was worked on the yoke in the other sizes).
When A.2 has been completed continue with stocking stitch and grey (all sizes).
Work with grey until the piece measures 15-17-21-24-27-30 cm from the division (or to desired length; there is approx. 5 cm left to finished length).
Change to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 1/ purl 1) for 5 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – read CASTING-OFF TIP! The jumper measures approx. 36-40-44-48-52-56 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 50-54-56-56-60-62 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 stitches cast on under sleeve = 56-60-62-64-68-70 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-8 stitches under the sleeve; allow it to follow your work onwards - it will be used when decreasing mid under sleeve.
Start the round at the marker thread and work A.2 in the round (applies only to sizes 2 years – this repeat was worked on the yoke in the other sizes).
When A.2 has been completed continue with stocking stitch and grey (all sizes).
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 2 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3-3-3½-4-4-4½ cm a total of 6-7-7-7-8-8 times = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches.
Continue with grey until the piece measures 18-21-26-29-33-37 cm from the division (or to desired length; there is approx. 5 cm left to finished length).
Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work rib in the round (knit 1/ purl 1) for 5 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – read CASTING-OFF TIP! The sleeve measures approx. 23-26-31-34-38-42 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

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

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with short circular needle, bottom up. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.

HAT:
Cast on 138-144-150 stitches with short circular needle size 2.5 mm and dark grey. Work rib in the round (= knit 1/ purl 1) for 4 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 26-28-30 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 112-116-120 stitches.
Change to short circular needle size 3 mm and work A.3 in the round (= 28-29-30 repeats of 4 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
On the round marked with an arrow in A.3 decrease 1-2-0 stitches evenly spaced = 111-114-120 stitches. Continue the pattern (there is now room for 37-38-40 repeats of 3 stitches). When A.3 has been completed the piece measures approx. 11 cm from the cast-on edge.
Continue with stocking stitch and grey. When the piece measures 13-15-17 cm from the cast-on edge, knit 1 round where you decrease 1-4-0 stitches evenly spaced = 110-110-120 stitches. Now insert 10 markers in the piece with 11-11-12 stitches between each one. On the next round decrease 1 stitch after each marker by knitting 2 stitches together (= 10 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 9 times in all sizes (change to double pointed needles when necessary) = 20-20-30 stitches left. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 10-10-15 stitches left. Work 1 more round where all stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 = 5-5-8 stitches left.
Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 19-21-23 cm from the top down.

Hi DROPS, Thanks for this great pattern. Just a comment regarding the elevation - I think the instructions result in an asymmetrical elevation. After the 75 knit stitches there needs to be 90 purl stiches, then turn and knit 45 stitches - which will return the working yarn to the mid back. Is this correct?

Birgit 22.07.2019 - 10:57:

Hvor er diagrammet til denne genseren? Jeg strikker den og plutselig er diagrammet borte???

DROPS Design 23.07.2019 kl. 07:38:

Hei Birgit, Diagrammene er på bunnen av oppskriften. God fornøyelse!

Susanne 21.06.2019 - 17:29:

Vielen lieben Dank für die prompte Hilfe!! Da ist mir wohl doch eine Zunahme entwischt. Ich stricke sehr viel, auch Norwegermuster, nach Ihren Anleitungen und auch mit der tollen Wolle-ich bin immer SEHR zufrieden!

Susanne 21.06.2019 - 15:02:

Hallo, leider komme ich bei der Größe 146/152 nicht auf 270 Maschen am Ende der Passe, kann es sein, daß im Diagramm Zunahmen fehlen? Am Anfang komme ich noch auf 135 Maschen, im Diagramm sind 5 Zunahmereihen angegeben, aber mir fehlen ca. 40 Maschen

DROPS Design 21.06.2019 kl. 16:08:

Liebe Susanne, Diagram beginnt mit 5 M und es wird 27 Mal wiederholt = 135 Maschen. Dann nehmen Sie 5 Mal 1 Masche in jedem A.1 = es sind 10 Maschen in jedem A.1 vor der Reihe mit dem Pfeil, dh 10 Maschen x 27 = 270, bei der Reihe mit dem Pfeil nehmen Sie 38 M regelmäßig verteilt zu = 308 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marijke 01.06.2019 - 01:19:

Bij mij niet hoor, alleen de kleuren met bijbehorende figuurtjes!

Marijke 21.05.2019 - 22:54:

Waar is het telpatroon van deze trui?

DROPS Design 22.05.2019 kl. 12:43:

Dag Marijke,

Het telpatroon staat helemaal onderaan het patroon.
