EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.4 and A.5).

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

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 238 stitches) and divide it by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 38) = 6,3. 
In this example decrease by working alternately approx. every 5th and 6th stitch together.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work in the round on circular needle from mid back, work bottom up to armholes. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, bottom up. Then slip body and sleeves together and finish yoke in the round.

BODY:
Cast on 160-170-190-200-220-240 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Air. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm and work as follows: Work A.2 over all stitches (= 16-17-19-20-22-24 repetitions of 10 stitches). Continue until A.2 has been worked vertically. Then work in stocking stitch until piece measures 12-12-13-14-13-13 cm (or desired measurements - adjust the length of garment here is desired) - REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work next round as follows: Work A.4 over all stitches (= 16-17-19-20-22-24 repetitions of 10 stitches). Continue this pattern until A.4 has been worked vertically.
Repeat A.4 1 more time vertically, but work last round as follows: Work 37-39-43-46-50-54 stitches as before (= half back piece), cast off the next 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches for armhole, work 74-80-88-92-100-108 stitches as before (= front piece), cast off the next 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches for armhole and work the last 37-39-43-46-50-54 stitches as before (= half back piece) = 148-158-174-184-200-216 stitches. Piece measures approx. 32-32-33-34-35-35 cm. Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Cast on 31-33-35-37-39-41 stitches on double pointed needles size 5 mm with Air. Work 2 ridges. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round and move the marker thread upwards when working. Use marker thread later when increasing mid under sleeve. Switch to double pointed needles/circular needle size 5.5 mm.
Work next round as follows: Knit 0-1-2-3-4-0, A.1 over the next 10 stitches, repeat A.2 until 1-2-3-4-5-1 stitches remain on round (= 2-2-2-2-2-3 repetitions of 10 stitches), A.3 over next stitch, finish by knitting 0-1-2-3-4-0. Continue until A.1 to A.3 have been worked vertically. Then work in stocking stitch - REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 7-7-8-7-9-8 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 3½-2½-2-2-1½-1½ cm 10-12-14-15-16-16 times in total = 51-57-63-67-71-73 stitches. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 21-19-19-18-16-14 cm (or desired measurements - adjust the sleeve length here if desired), work A.4 over all stitches – adjust so that stitch with star is mid on top of sleeve, and adjust pattern out to each side. I.e. when increases under sleeve are done, work as follows: Knit 0-3-1-3-0-1, A.4 (= 5-5-6-6-7-7 repetitions of 10 stitches) and knit 1-4-2-4-1-2. Work the stitches that do not fit the pattern in stocking stitch, and work the increased stitches in pattern A.4 (make sure to have the same number of decreases and yarn overs in the pattern). Continue this pattern until A.4 has been worked vertically. Repeat A.4 1 more time vertically, but work last round as follows: Cast off the first 3-3-4-4-5-6 stitches for armhole, work 45-51-55-59-61-61 stitches as before and cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5-6 stitches for armhole = 45-51-55-59-61-61 stitches. Piece measures approx. 41-39-39-38-38-36 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke). Put piece aside and knit the other sleeve the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle 5.5 mm as body where armholes were cast off = 238-260-284-302-322-338 stitches. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work A.5 over all stitches - AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow in A.5 decrease evenly as explained below:
ARROW-1: Decrease 38-40-44-42-42-38 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP = 200-220-240-260-280-300 stitches.
(Now work A.5 20-22-24-26-28-30 times in width).
ARROW-2: Decrease 40-50-50-50-40-40 stitches evenly = 160-170-190-210-240-260 stitches.
(Now work A.5 16-17-19-21-24-26 times in width).
ARROW-3: Decrease 40-40-40-40-40-40 stitches evenly = 120-130-150-170-200-220 stitches.
(Now work A.5 12-13-15-17-20-22 times in width).
ARROW-4: Decrease 28-30-42-30-40-40 stitches evenly = 92-100-108-140-160-180 stitches.
ARROW-5: Decrease 16-20-18-28-42-30 stitches evenly = 76-80-90-112-118-150 stitches.

SIZE: XL-XXL:
ARROW-6: Decrease 18-20 stitches evenly = 94-98 stitches.

SIZE XXXL:
ARROW-6: Decrease 28 stitches evenly = 122 stitches.
ARROW-7: Decrease 20 stitches evenly = 102 stitches.

ALL SIZES:
When entire A.5 has been worked, yoke measures approx. 20-22-23-24-25-27 cm and there are 76-80-90-94-98-102 stitches on round. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm and work 2 ridges. Loosely cast off but make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge (stitch to larger needle size if needed).

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the opening under the sleeves.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over (= hole)
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on next round work yarn over twisted (= NOT hole)
= knit 2 together - NOTE: On round with black square displace the beginning of round 1 stitch to the left, i.e. pass the first stitch on to right needle without working it, then work repetition in the round. Work stitch passed on to right needle in last repetition. On next round knit all stitches and on next round begin round as before again.
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= round where beginning of round is displaced
= purl 2 together
= purl 3 together - NOTE: On round marked with black squares displace the beginning of round 2 stitches to the left, i.e. pass the first 2 stitches on to right needle without working them, then work repetition in the round. Work the 2 stitches passed on to right needle in last repetition. On next round knit all stitches and on next round begin round as before again.
= decrease round
= middle stitch mid on top of sleeve

Hello! need your help) the A2 has the dark square. it is okay. but after this round - should i move the first stitch back on the left needle? or this stitch staying in new place for all next rounds? best regards and thanks for this design!

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 08:31:

Dear Jaana, at the end of the round with the black square, the last stitch last repeat of A.2 will be worked together with the first st of the round = this stitch is now the first stitch of the round (and the yarn over is the last stitch of the round). Work next round as shown in diagram, and work them diagram again as before . Happy knitting!

Tour ou le début du tour est décalé vous décalé 1 x ? merci

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 14:55:

Bonjour Mme Bouhon, quand on a un carré noir au début du tour, la première maille du tour sera tricotée avec la dernière du dernier motif du tour. Quand on a un carré noir au début d'un motif à répéter, cette maille a été tricotée avec la dernière maille du motif précédent. Bon tricot!

Jannie Prigge 31.03.2019 - 12:28:

Het is inmiddels gelukt... dank jullie wel

Jannie Prigge 28.03.2019 - 16:54:

De beschrijving van de mouw is wat moeilijk in het begin, betekent 1e naald a1+a2 en a3 achter elkaar?

DROPS Design 31.03.2019 kl. 11:59:

Dag Jannie,

Je breit eerst een aantal steken recht, dan brei je A.1 over de volgende 10 steken (dat is dus 1 keer A.1 in de breedte omdat er ook 10 steken in A.1 zitten) daarna herhaal je A.2 steeds in de breedte totdat je nog 1-2-3-4-5-1 steken op de naald hebt staan en tot slot brei je A.3 over de laatste steek.

Henriette Friis 23.02.2019 - 19:35:

Jeg ville meget gerne strikke den i et tyndere garn. ca 22 m på 10 cm. hvordan får man mønstret til at passe så det bliver en str M ????

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 10:01:

Hei Henriette. Om du vil endre strikkefastheten må du gjerne gjøre det. Du må da selv regne ut hvor mange masker du trenger. Dette gjør du ved å ta det ønskede cm-målet og gange med strikkefastheten i bredden: feks ønsker du at den skal ha en overvidde på 53 cm tvers over (altså 106 cm rundt) ganger du 106 med 2,2 = 233 masker på bolen. Tips: pass på at maskeantallet du velger går opp i hele rapporter av mønsteret. God fornøyelse
