EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 105 stitches) minus edge stitches (= 2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be made (e.g. 21) = 4.9. 
In this example, decrease by knitting together approx. each 4th and 5th stitch

DECREASE TIP-2 (for neck on back piece):
All decreases worked from right side.
Decrease 1 stitch after the 2 stitches in garter stitch from the neck as follows: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
Decrease 1 stitch before the 2 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck as follows: Knit 2 together.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before A.1 under the sleeve, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, A.1, knit 2, make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work new stitches in stocking stitch

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in sections and sewn together to finish. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 105-111-117-129-141-153 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) with circular needle size 5 mm and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side. Then work rib as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, (knit 1, purl 2) until there are 2 stitches left on row, knit 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth for 4 cm. Now knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 21-21-21-27-29-33 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 84-90-96-102-112-120 STITCHES. Change to circular needle size 6 mm. Work stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side until the piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! At the beginning of the next 2 rows cast off 3-4-4-5-6-6 stitches for armholes = 78-82-88-92-100-108 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm, work garter stitch over the middle 18-18-20-20-22-22 stitches on the row. When you have worked 2 ridges over these stitches work the next row from the right side as follows: Work the first 32-34-36-38-41-45 stitches and place on 1 thread for right shoulder, cast off the next 14-14-16-16-18-18 stitches for neck and work the remaining 32-34-36-38-41-45 stitches. Then finish the shoulders separately. Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the armhole, 2 stitches in garter stitch towards the neck and stocking stitch over the remaining stitches. On the next row from the right side decrease 1 stitch inside the 2 stitches in garter stitch towards neck – read DECREASE TIP-2 = 31-33-35-37-40-44 stitches. Continue working until the armhole measures 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm. Cast off. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 105-111-117-129-141-153 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) with circular needle size 5 mm and Air. Purl 1 row from the wrong side then work rib as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, (knit 1, purl 2) until there are 2 stitches left on row, knit 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until the piece measures 4 cm. Now work as follows: Work the first 51-54-57-63-68-75 stitches and decrease at the same time 10-10-10-13-14-16 stitches evenly spaced, work A.1 (= 2 stitches), work the remaining stitches on the row and decrease at the same time 11-11-11-14-15-17 stitches evenly spaced = 84-90-96-102-112-120 stitches. Change to circular needle size 6 mm. Continue back and forth with A.1 over the middle 2 stitches, stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. When the piece measures 34-36-37-39-40-42 cm work A.2 over the middle 20 stitches on the row. The 2 middle stitches in A.2 should match the 2 stitches in A.1. When you have worked the row with the star, you have decreased 2 stitches in A.2 and the piece is now divided in the middle. Place the first half of the stitches (seen from the right side) on a thread (= right front piece/shoulder) and continue back and forth over the left front piece/shoulder. Continue with stocking stitch, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the armhole and A.2 towards the neck; i.e. you decrease for neck as shown in the last 6 rows of the diagram (3 decreases are shown in diagram) until you have decreased a total of 8-8-9-9-10-10 times. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 39-40-41-42-43-44 cm cast off 3-4-4-5-6-6 stitches at the beginning of the row from the armhole. When all the decreases are finished, work as shown in A.3 over the outermost 5 stitches on the left front piece (towards the neck) to finished length. When all the decreases to neck and armhole are finished there are 31-33-35-37-40-44 stitches on shoulder. Continue working until the armhole measures approx. 15-16-17-18-19-20 cm - adjust to match the back piece. Cast off. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down.
Place the stitches from the thread back on the circular needle and work right front piece/shoulder in the same way as the left, but reversed; i.e. start from the wrong side, at the neck on the row after the star in A.2 and work as follows: Work the 9 stitches in A.2, stocking stitch until there is 1 stitch left and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this and decrease for neck and armhole in the same way as on the left front piece. When the 8-8-9-9-10-10 decreases for neck are finished work A.4 over the outermost 5 stitches towards the neck to finished length. Adjust the length to match left front piece/shoulder and back piece.

SLEEVE:
The sleeve is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Cast on 43-43-45-48-48-51 stitches with double pointed needles size 5 mm. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (knit 1, purl 2) for 4 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 6 mm. The next round is worked as follows: Knit 2, work A.1 over the next 2 stitches (= purl 1 and knit 1), knit to end of round at the same time as you decrease 9-8-8-10-9-11 stitches evenly spaced = 33-34-37-38-39-40 stitches. Continue in the round with stocking stitch and A.1 mid under sleeve. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 8-9-9-9-8-8 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side – read INCREASE TIP. Increase in the different sizes as follows:
Size S: Increase alternately every 6 and 7 cm a total of 6 times.
Size M: Increase every 5 cm a total of 7 times.
Size L: Increase every 5 cm a total of 7 times.
Size XL: Increase every 4 cm a total of 8 times.
Size XXL: Increase alternately every 3 and 4 cm a total of 9 times.
Size XXXL: Increase every 3 cm a total of 10 times.
When all the increases are finished there are 45-48-51-54-57-60 stitches on the round. Continue working until the piece measures 45-44-43-42-40-38 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider shoulders). Finish the round in the middle of diagram A.1 (= mid under sleeve). Now continue back and forth with stocking stitch over all stitches (to allow you to sew the sleeve to the armhole). When you have worked back and forth for 2-3-3-4-4-4 cm the sleeve measures a total of 47-47-46-46-44-42 cm. Cast off. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams with grafting stitches inside the cast-off edge. Sew sleeves to body. Sew side seams inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on next row (wrong side) purl yarn over to leave a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass slipped stitch over knitted stitch
= when this row is finished, the piece is divided for right and left shoulder and each piece is finished separately
= this square has no stitch as the stitch was decreased earlier. The squares mark the decreases for neck mid front

Når skuldrene på baksiden skal strikkes står det at det skal felles 1 maske innenfor de to rilemaskene. Det står deretter at en skal benytte felletips 2 og ende opp med, for meg, 33 masker. Felletips 2 sier likevel at man skal felle 2 masker. Hva er det jeg ikke forstår ? Hvordan er det dette skal felles ? Og forstår jeg det rett at det bare skal felles på en pinne ? Ikke ut hele skulderen ?

DROPS Design 08.04.2019 kl. 14:15:

Hei Nora. Felletips 2 forklarer hvordan det felles innenfor de 2 rillemaskene både på høyre og venstre skulder. Du skal felle fra rettsiden, så når du strikker venstre skulder feller du ETTER rillemaskene nærmest halsen, og når du strikker høyre skulder feller du FØR rillemaskene nærmest halsen. Det felles altså kun 1 maske på hver skulder, men de felles ulikt. Derfor står det forklaring på hvordan begge maskene felles. God fornøyelse.

Thea 20.03.2019 - 11:28:

Når dere skriver: "111 masker (Inkludert 1 kantmaske i hver side)" Mener dere da at det totalt blir 113 masker ? Jeg forstod det som at det var 111 masker inkludert kantmaskene.... men jeg får da ikke riktig antall når jeg feller. Dette bør spesifiseres bedre 😅

DROPS Design 21.03.2019 kl. 14:50:

Hei Thea. Det er 111 masker inkludert kantmaskene, altså 2 kantmasker (1 i hver side) og 109 masker mellom. Ved hvilken felling er det du ikke får riktig maskeantall? Etter vrangborden feller du 21 masker, da har du 90 masker igjen. Du feller av 4 masker i hver side til ermhull (= 8 masker), og du har da 82 masker på pinnen. Videre felles 14 masker til hals og du har 34 masker på hver skulder. God fornøyelse

Cecilie 19.03.2019 - 17:33:

Hvordan skal kantmaskene legges opp / strikkes ? Jeg har aldri benytta dette før

DROPS Design 21.03.2019 kl. 14:52:

Hei Cecilie. Kantmaskene legges opp på samme måte som de andre maskene, og de strikkes i rille (altså rett på hver pinne, slik at de blir annenhver omgang rett og vrang sett fra rettsiden). God fornøyelse

Anett 13.03.2019 - 13:39:

Ein tolles Modell, was ich gerne stricken würde, aber leider fehlt die Diagramm-Skizze .

DROPS Design 14.03.2019 kl. 10:14:

Liebe Anett, Diagram finden Sie ganz unten, nach der schriflichten Anleitung. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Eve 12.03.2019 - 20:23:

Bonjour Juste une question : dans la légende des diagrammes, je vois "3 mailles ensemble..." mais dans les diagrammes il n'y a pas le dessin des 3 mailles ensemble. Faut-il l'ignorer? Il n'y a réellement que des diminutions d'1 maille, non? Je vous remercie pour toutes vos explications. Bien cordialement

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 22:22:

Bonjour Eve. Vous avez raison, attendez une correction dans les jours qui viennent. Bon travail!

Celina 07.03.2019 - 15:09:

Hola esta hermoso el suéter! Sencillo pero con forma. Solo que en la versión en español no vienen los diagramas.

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 07:59:

Buenos dias Celina! Los diagramas estan justo abajo. Buen trabajo!

Meurs Sandrine 25.02.2019 - 11:42:

Bonjour, ce modèle est très beau j’aimerai beaucoup le tricoter! Comment peut-on avoir le patron?

DROPS Design 25.02.2019 kl. 12:42:

Bonjour Mme Meurs, tous les modèles présentés dans la collection printemps-été seront disponibles d'ici cet été, revenez régulièrement. Bon tricot!

Patrizia 06.02.2019 - 22:10:

Speriamo a presto la spiegazione

Petra Stammkötter 06.02.2019 - 12:23:

Ich hoffe sehr, es gibt bald die Anleitung, wie auch immer das wundervolle Modell heissen wird. "Red Magic" wäre was . Freue mich aufs stricken von dem Modell.

Jutta 30.01.2019 - 11:33:
