EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4 (note that sometimes the pattern is worked on all rounds).

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 108 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made.(e.g. 36) = 3.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 3rd stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

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

NECK:
Cast on 108-112-116-120-124-128 stitches with short circular needle size 3 mm and Muskat. Work A.1 in the round. Continue this pattern until A.1 has been worked 1 time in height.
Knit 1 round where you increase 36-36-38-40-40-42 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 144-148-154-160-164-170 stitches. Then work yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work stocking stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME increase as described below. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 4-5-5-5-6-6 cm from the cast-on edge increase 30-44-50-58-60-62 stitches evenly spaced = 174-192-204-218-224-232 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch.
When the piece measures 6-7-8-9-10-11 cm from the cast-on edge increase 26-38-46-52-56-58 stitches evenly spaced = 200-230-250-270-280-290 stitches.
Work 1 round with stocking stitch. Then work A.2 in the round (= 20-23-25-27-28-29 repeats of 10 stitches). Continue this pattern, but on the round marked with an arrow in A.2, displace the start of the round 2 stitches to the left; i.e. slip the first 2 stitches onto the right needle without working them, then work A.2 in the round. The 2 stitches which were slipped onto the right needle are worked in the last repeat of A.2. The next round starts as usual.
When A.2 has been completed there are 240-276-300-324-336-348 stitches on the needle.
Continue in the round with stocking stitch. AT THE SAME TIME increase as described below.
When the piece measures 15-16-17-18-20-21 cm from the cast-on edge increase 20-20-22-24-28-30 stitches evenly spaced = 260-296-322-348-364-378 stitches. Continue with stocking stitch.
When the piece measures 17-18-19-21-23-25 cm from the cast-on edge increase 10-14-20-22-26-28 stitches evenly spaced = 270-310-342-370-390-406 stitches.
Continue in the round with stocking stitch until the piece measures 18-20-22-24-26-28 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
Now divide the yoke for body and sleeves as follows: Work 41-46-50-55-59-63 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece), place the next 53-63-71-75-77-77 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 82-92-100-110-118-126 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), place the next 53-63-71-75-77-77 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 41-46-50-55-59-63 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 180-200-220-240-260-280 stitches. Start the round on the one side of the piece, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve. Work A.3 in the round (= 18-20-22-24-26-28 repeats of 10 stitches). Continue this pattern, but on the round marked with an arrow in A.3, displace the start of the round 2 stitches to the left in the same way as in A.2.
When A.3 has been completed, work 1 round of stocking stitch where you increase 10 stitches evenly spaced in all sizes = 190-210-230-250-270-290 stitches. Continue in the round with stocking stitch and repeat the increase when the piece measures 14-14-14-14-16-16 cm from the division = 200-220-240-260-280-300 stitches.
Now work A.3 in the round again (= 20-22-24-26-28-30 repeats of 10 stitches).
When A.3 has been completed work stocking stitch until the piece measures 28 cm from the division in all sizes (or to desired length; there is approx. 4 cm to finished length).
Knit 1 round where you increase 64-74-78-88-92-96 stitches evenly spaced = 264-294-318-348-372-396 stitches. This is done to avoid the rib being tight.
Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 3 / purl 3) for 4 cm. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 53-63-71-75-77-77 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle or double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches cast on under sleeve = 61-71-81-85-89-91 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve. Allow the marker thread to follow your work onwards – it will be used when decreasing mid under sleeve.
Start the round by the marker thread and work the first round as follows: Work 0-0-0-2-4-0 stitches in stocking stitch, work A.4A (= 10 stitches), A.4B over the next 40-50-60-60-60-70 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-6-7 repeats of 10 stitches), A.4C (= 11 stitches) and finish with 0-0-0-2-4-0 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue this pattern until A.4 has been worked 1 time in height, then work stocking stitch in the round.
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 3-3-2-2-2-2 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6-2½-1½-1½-1½-1 cm a total of 5-9-13-13-14-14 times = 51-53-55-59-61-63 stitches (stitches which do not fit into A.4 when decreasing, are worked in stocking stitch).
Work until the sleeve measures 29-27-26-24-23-21 cm from the division (or to desired length; there is approx. 4 cm left to finished length. NOTE: Shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 3-1-5-1-5-3 stitches evenly spaced = 54-54-60-60-66-66 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 3 / purl 3) for 4 cm. Change back to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 33-31-30-28-27-25 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on next round knit the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch

Bonjour MERCI pour la rapidité de votre réponse....effectivement il me manquait 1 jeté dans chaque section du rang 13...J'ai défait et recommencé...c'est parfait du coup...MERCI à vous pour votre aide.

Marie-Line 15.08.2019 - 17:14:

Bonjour je réalise ce modèle et j ai un souci dans la diagramme A2 après le 14ème rang... je ne tombe pas juste pour faire le 15ème rang...et je ne vois vraiment pas d'où vient le problème..

DROPS Design 16.08.2019 kl. 08:53:

Bonjour Marie-Line, avez-vous bien tricoté le rang 13 comme les rangs 11 et 9? on diminue 2 m aux rangs 8, 10 et 12 = il doit rester 8 m + on doit avoir 4 jetés aux rangs 9, 11 et 13 + 2 diminutions = le nombre de mailles est de nouveau à 10. Bon tricot!

Anna 28.03.2019 - 11:04:

Liebes Team, sehr schöne Anleitung, aber mir sind alle Modelle zu groß und ich muss sie immer extra anpassen und umrechnen (trage Größe XS oder XXS). Warum gibt es denn alle Drops-Anleitungen bis Größe XXXL, aber nicht für kleine Konfektionsgrößen?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 12:04:

Liebe Anna, die meisten unserer Anleitungen beginnen mit der Größe S - einige schon mit XS - leider können wir nicht jeder Anleitung nach jeder Anfrage anpassen, aber gerne nehmen Sie Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden/Strickforum auf, um persönnliche Hilfe zu bekommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Witam.czy długość robótki mierzyć zawsze od ostatniego rzędu nabierania oczek ?czy kolejną długość mierzyć zawsze od pierszego rzędu dodanych oczek?

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 18:45:

Witaj Lucyno! Długość karczku jest mierzona zawsze od rzędu nabierania oczek, kolejna długość tzn. przód jest mierzona od momentu podziału robótki, czyli od rzędu, w którym były nabierane oczka na boku, pod rękawem. Powodzenia!

Mirtha 18.03.2019 - 18:59:

Mirtha 11.03.2019 - 15:38:

No entiendo como se hacen 4 lazadas seguidas; alguien me lo puede decir ?. He llegado a ese punto y no he podido seguir🤔🙏🏼🙏🏼

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 23:31:

Hola Mirtha. En el centro del diagrama no tienes 4 lazadas seguidas, son 1 lazada 1 derecho, 1 lazada, 1 derecho, 1 lazada, 1 derecho, 1 lazada.

Eby 11.03.2019 - 11:04:

There are no diagrams A.3A and A.3B for knitting sleeves.

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 14:50:

Dear Eby, you are right, we will check sleeves pattern and update diagram or pattern. Thank you. Happy knitting!
