EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size. First work A.1 (= rib on neck). When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 over A.1. When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.3 over A.2.

STRIPES:
To get the 2-colored effect work stripes with, alternately, 1 round of color-2 and 1 round of color-1.
Pattern A.2 starts with a round off-white as described in text. Each time you decrease or increase in A.2 and A.3, you work on a round with color-2.
Stripes are worked in English rib.
STRIPE 1: Color-1 = lavender, color-2 = off white. Work until the piece measures 5 cm = 2” at the shortest point.
STRIPE 2: Color-1 = grey blue, color-2 = off white. Work until the piece measures a total of 9 cm = 3 1/2” at the shortest point.
STRIPE 3: Color-1 = off white, color-2 = lavender. Work until A.3 has been worked 1 time in height.
The last row in the diagram is worked with lavender. Then continue the stripes, in reversed stockinette stitch, as follows:
ROUND 1: Work with off white.
ROUND 2: Work with lavender.
Repeat rounds 1 and 2.

KNITTING TIP:
All stitch counts when working English rib are without yarn overs, because the yarn overs belong to the knitted stitches and are therefore counted as 1 stitch (unless otherwise stated).

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, purl 2 together, purl 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), purl 2 stitches together twisted (2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 252 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 18) = 14.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 14th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before marker thread, 1 yarn over, purl 4 (marker thread sits in middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round purl the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then purl the new stitches onwards.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck and yoke are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The yoke is worked in 2-colored English rib with zigzag, then the piece is continued in stockinette stitch with wrong side out and stripes, with 1 round of each color. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves. The body is continued in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 120-132-132-144-144-156 stitches with circular needle size 2.5 mm = US 1,5 and off-white. Knit 1 round. Then work A.1 in the round (= 10-11-11-12-12-13 repeats of 12 stitches). When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5. Work A.2 in the round (= 10-11-11-12-12-13 repeats of 12 stitches –first round worked with off-white). Read STRIPES and KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height there are 240-264-308-336-384-416 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 9-9-9-9-11-11 cm = 3 1/2”-3 1/2”-3 1/2”-3 1/2”-4 3/8”-4 3/8” from the cast-on edge mid front.
Now work A.3 over A.2. When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height there are 320-352-396-432-456-494 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 17-17-19-19-21-21 cm = 6 3/4-6 3/4”-7 1/2”-7 1/2”-8 1/4”-8 1/4” from the cast-on edge mid front.
Continue in the round with purl and stripes as before.
When the piece measures 19-19-21-21-21-21 cm = 7 1/2”-7 1/2”-8 1/4”-8 1/4”-8 1/4”-8 1/4” from the cast-on edge increase evenly spaced as follows: Increase 4-4-4-4-8-8 stitches every 2 cm = 3/4” a total of 1-2-1-1-2-2 times = 324-360-400-436-472-510 stitches – read INCREASE TIP-1.
When the piece measures 21-23-24-26-28-30 cm = 8 1/4”-9”-9 1/2”-10 1/4”-11”-11 3/4” from the cast-on edge mid front, divide the piece for body and sleeves as follows:
Purl 49-53-58-65-72-78 stitches as before (= ½ back piece), place the next 64-74-84-88-92-98 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), purl the next 98-106-116-130-144-157 stitches (= front piece), place the next 64-74-84-88-92-98 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and purl the remaining 49-53-58-65-72-79 stitches (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 212-228-248-276-304-330 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side of the body, in the middle of the 8 stitches cast on under each sleeve. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards; they will be used when increasing in the sides.
Start the round at one of the marker threads and purl in the round as before with stripes.
When the piece measures 2 cm = 3/4” from the division, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2½-2½-2½-3-3-2½ cm = 1”-1”-1”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1” a total of 10-10-10-9-9-11 times = 252-268-288-312-340-374 stitches.
Continue working until the piece measures 28-28-29-29-29-29 cm = 11”-11”-11 3/8”-11 3/8”-11 3/8”-11 3/8” from the division (or to desired length; there is 2 cm = 3/4” left to finished length).
Knit 1 round where you increase 18-20-18-18-17-19 stitches evenly spaced = 270-288-306-330-357-393 stitches. Change to circular needle size 2.5 mm = US 1,5 and work rib in the round with off-white (= knit 1/ purl 2) for 2 cm = 3/4”. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sweater measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm = 21 1/4"-22"-22 3/4"-23 5/8"-24 3/8"-25 1/4" from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 64-74-84-88-92-98 stitches from the thread on the 1 side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 3 mm = US 2,5 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 72-82-92-96-100-106 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8 stitches cast on under the sleeve. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards; they will be used when decreasing under the sleeve.
Start the round by the marker thread and purl in the round with stripes as before. When the piece measures 2 cm = 3/4” from the division decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-2½-2-1½-1½-1½ cm = 1 1/2”-1”-3/4”-1”-1”-1” a total of 9-13-17-18-19-21 times = 54-56-58-60-62-64 stitches.
Continue working until the piece measures 42-41-40-39-37-35 cm = 16 1/2”-16 1/8”-15 3/4”-15 1/4”-14 1/2”-13 3/4” from the division (or to desired length; there is 2 cm = 3/4” left to finished length. NOTE: Shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke).
Knit 1 round where you increase 0-1-2-0-1-2 stitches evenly spaced = 54-57-60-60-63-66 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm = US 1,5 and work rib in the round with off-white (= knit 1/ purl 2) for 2 cm = 3/4”. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 44-43-42-41-39-37 cm = 17 1/4”-17”-16 1/2”-16 1/8”-15 1/4”-14 1/2” from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

All measurements in charts are in cm.

= purl
= knit
= color-1
= color-2
= make 1 yarn over right needle, slip 1 stitch onto right needle as if to purl
= knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch
= purl together the yarn over and slipped stitch
= increase 2 stitches with colour-2 as follows: Work 3 stitches in purled stitch and yarn over; i.e. purl together yarn over and purled stitch, but do not slip the stitch off the needle, make 1 yarn over the right needle and purl together stitch and yarn over 1 more time = 3 stitches
= decrease 2 stitches, as if to purl, towards the left with color-2 as follows: Purl 2 together (yarn over and purled stitch + knit 1), slip the next yarn-over and purled stitch onto right needle, place them back on left needle so the stitch is outermost (and yarn over no. 2), place knitted-together stitches back on left needle, keep strand at front of piece, pass stitch and yarn over onto left needle (i.e. second and third stitch on left needle) over the stitch which was placed back on left needle (with strand in front of piece). To finish place this stitch back on the right needle (= 2 stitches decreased)
= decrease 2 stitches, as if to purl, towards the right with color-2 as follows (it is important to keep the strand at the front of the piece the whole time during this decrease): slip yarn over and purled stitch onto right needle, place knitted stitch on an extra needle in front of piece (with strand in front of stitch), slip the next yarn over and purled stitch from left needle onto right needle, place stitch from extra needle back on left needle, purl this stitch, pass purled stitch and yarn over (i.e. second and third stitch on right needle) over the outermost stitch, pass next purled stitch and yarn-over (i.e. second and third stitch on right needle) over outermost stitch (= 2 stitches decreased)
= purl 2 stitches (and 1 yarn over, if on the last round the stitch was worked in English rib) together
= increase 2 stitches with colour-2 as follows: Work 3 stitches in purled stitch; i.e. purl 1, but do not slip the stitch off the needle, 1 yarn over right needle and purl 1 in same stitch = 3 stitches
= knitting direction

Bonjour Où trouve-t'on le tuto du point côtes anglaises zigzag pour ce modèle 201.30 ? je vois bien le tuto côtes anglaises avec jeté mais pas zigzag, et les tutos youtube ne ressemblent pas aux points visibles sur le modèle? Merci par avance

DROPS Design 29.08.2019 kl. 13:01:

Bonjour Mme Laurent, nous n'avons pas encore de vidéo pour les diagrammes, on les tricote en côtes anglaises en suivant bien pas à pas chaque rang des diagrammes et en se référant à la légende pour former le motif. Bon tricot!

Waarom krijg ik geen antwoord op mijn vraag van 2 juli 2019? Mijn vraag is wel afgedrukt op de site. M.vr.gr.

Karen 02.07.2019 - 19:06:

Streep 1 meet 5 cm vanaf het kortste punt. Vraag: wordt dat gemeten vanaf de opzet rand? Of vanaf nld 1 van patroon A.2? Streep 2 meet 9 cm vanaf het kortste punt. Vraag: wordt dat gemeten vanaf de opzetrand? Of vanaf de 1ste nld van patroon A.2? Of vanaf het begin van streep 2? M.vr.dank!

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 12:00:

Dag Karen,

De 5 en 9 cm van de strepen worden gemeten vanaf de opzetnaald. Door het patroon komt er een golving in en je meet dus waar de streep op zijn kortst is.

Pennock 31.05.2019 - 10:20:

Patroon 201/30, wat wordt bedoeld met 3 strepen? Uit hoeveel naalden bestaan die strepen? Met vriendelijke dank

DROPS Design 31.05.2019 kl. 15:39:

Dag Pennock,

Bovenaan in het patroon bij 'STREPEN' staat uitgelegd hoe je de strepen breit en hoe breed deze strepen moeten worden. Je breit de strepen een aantal cm's. Hoeveel naalden dit is hangt af van je stkenverhouding.

Elvanna 14.04.2019 - 12:56:

Das Modell ist unnötig kompliziert beschrieben. Anstatt das Patentmuster auf die Reihen mit den linken Patentmaschen zu stricken und dann alles komplett in linken Maschen zu arbeiten, ist es wesentlich sinnvoller den kompletten Pullover 'von innen' zu arbeiten (Zu- und Abnahmen auf rechte Patentmaschen und rechte Maschen im Muster) und ihn nach Abschluss umzuwenden.

DROPS Design 24.04.2019 kl. 11:32:

Liebe Elvanna, ja grundsätzlich ginge das, allerdings müssen dann auch die Farben des Patentmusters umgedreht werden, damit sie auf der Vorderseite richtig erscheinen. Gutes Gelingen!

Eva 16.03.2019 - 23:55:

Falta el diagrama. Gracias por estos patrones tan preciosos.
