SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in sections, bottom up. The garment is sewn together and then the neck is worked.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 87-95-109-119-133-149 stitches (including 1 edge stitch on each side) with circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and 2 strands Kid Silk (this is done to avoid the cast-on edge being tight). Remove the one strand and continue working with just 1 strand Kid Silk as follows: Work 2 RIDGES back and forth over all stitches – read description above.
Then work the next row as follows from the right side: Work 3-3-2-3-2-2 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 4 stitches), A.2 until there are 8-8-7-8-7-7 stitches left on row (= 9-10-12-13-15-17 repeats of 8 stitches), work A.3 (= 5 stitches) and finish with 3-3-2-3-2-2 stitches in garter stitch. Continue this pattern until you have worked a total of 3 repeats in height. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! The piece now measures approx. 9 cm = 3 1/2” from the cast-on edge. Continue with garter stitch back and forth over all stitches.
When the piece measures 10 cm = 4” from the cast-on edge increase 1 stitch on each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 2 stitches increased). Increase like this every 4-4-6-6-8-8 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”-3 1/8”-3 1/8” a total of 4-4-3-3-3-3 times on each side = 95-103-115-125-139-155 stitches.
When the piece measures 26-27-28-29-30-31 cm = 10 1/4”-10 5/8”-11”-11 3/8”-11 3/4”-12 1/4”, bind off stitches on each side for armholes at the beginning of each row as follows: Bind off 3-4-6-6-7-7 stitches 1 time on each side, 2 stitches 0-1-1-2-2-3 times on each side and then 1 stitch 2-2-5-6-10-15 times on each side = 85-87-89-93-97-99 stitches left on needle. Continue working until the piece measures 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm = 16 1/2”-17 1/4”-18”-19”-19 3/4”-20 1/2”. Now bind off the middle 35-35-37-37-39-39 stitches for neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue back and forth with garter stitch and bind off 2 stitches on next row from the neck = 23-24-24-26-27-28 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 44-46-48-50-52-54 cm = 17 1/4”-18”-19”-19 3/4”-20 1/2”-21 1/4”. Loosely bind off with knit from the right side and 2 strands Kid-Silk. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

Hei. Har kjøpt garn til Jolina topp i Kid slik. Synes det blir litt for tynt for meg. Kan jeg strikke den med dobbel tråd? Hvor mye må jeg da redusere masketallet i str.m? Mvh Unni Korneliussen

DROPS Design 03.07.2019 kl. 12:02:

Hej Unni. Vi har dessvärre inte möjlighet att räkna om oppskrifter. Vill du sticka i dubbel tråd kidsilk kan du ser på våra oppskrifter i garngrupp C (A+A), som t.ex den här. Kom ihåg att se till så att stickfastheten stämmer. Lycka till!

Maria F 20.05.2019 - 09:26:

Har en fråga. Det står: Lägg upp 87-95-109-119-133-149 maskor (inklusive 1 kantmaska i varje sida) på rundsticka 3,5 med 2 trådar Kid Silk (detta görs för att undvika att uppläggningskanten stramar). Ta bort den ena tråden och sticka sedan med 1 tråd Kid Silk Vad menas med att ta bort den ena tråden?

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 13:41:

Hei Maria. Det vil si at du legger opp med 2 tråder, men når du begynner å strikke gjøres dette kun med 1 tråd. Den andre tråden kan du klippe, og etterhvert feste. God fornøyelse

Juhendis on kirjas, et "koo järgmine rida töö paremal pool järgmiselt: koo 3-3-2-3-2-2 nööbiliistusilmust ripskoes, koo skeemi A.1 (= 4 silmust), skeemi A.2 kuni jääb 8-8-7-8-7-7 silmust reale (= 9-10-12-13-15-17 mustrikordust 8 silmusega), koo skeemi A.3 (= 5 silmust), lõpus tee 3-3-2-3-2-2 nööbiliistusilmust ripskoes." Milleks kududa nööbiliistusilmuseid, kui sellel kudumil pole nööbiliistu?

DROPS Design 12.09.2019 kl. 14:12:

Tere Mari-Liis! Tegemist on ääresilmustega. Viga parandatud. Tänan teatamast! Head kudumist!

It reminds me of "arabian nights".
