EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 12) = 7.7. In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 8th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

STRIPES:
14-14-14½-14½-15-15 cm with powder pink.
9-9½-10-10½-11-11 cm with old pink.
2-2-2-2-2-2 cm with mustard.
9-9½-10-10½-11-11 cm with peach.
9-9½-10-10½-11-11 cm with light lavender.
Then work with denim blue until finished measurements.

RAGLAN:
Increase for raglan in every transition between sleeves and body as follows: Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over = 2 stitches increased. On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. Increase 8 stitches in total on every increase round.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work yoke and body in the round on circular needle from mid back, top down. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, top down. Work entire garment in stocking stitch with stripes and edges in rib.

YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-104-108-116 stitches on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm with powder pink. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm, knit 1 round while increasing 12-16-20-20-16-16 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP = 104-112-120-124-124-132 stitches.
Work next round while at the same time inserting 4 marker threads as follows: Knit 18-20-22-23-23-25 stitches (= half back piece), insert first marker thread here, knit 16 stitches (= sleeve), insert second marker thread here, knit 36-40-44-46-46-50 stitches (= front piece), insert third marker thread here, knit 16 stitches (= sleeve), insert fourth marker thread here and knit the remaining 18-20-22-23-23-25 stitches on round (= half back piece).
Then work in stocking stitch and STRIPES - read explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME on first round increase for RAGLAN in every transition between body and sleeves – read explanation above. Continue increase for raglan every other round until increase has been done 19-21-22-24-26-28 times in total on each side of the 4 marker threads. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
After last increase there are 256-280-296-316-332-356 stitches on row and piece measures approx. 23-25-26-28-30-32 cm from cast-on edge mid back. If this measurements are not correct, continue to work without increases until piece has correct measurement. Work next round as follows:
Work 39-42-45-49-52-57 stitches as before (= half back piece), slip the next 50-56-58-60-62-64 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve), work 78-84-90-98-104-114 stitches as before (= front piece), slip the next 50-56-58-60-62-64 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeve) and work the 39-42-45-49-52-57 stitches as before (= half back piece). Then finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 172-184-200-216-232-252 stitches. Continue in stocking stitch and stripes. When piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-31 cm from division, knit 1 round while increasing 32-36-40-40-44-48 stitches evenly - remember INCREASE TIP = 204-220-240-256-276-300 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Loosely cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use circular needle size 5.5 mm. Jumper measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 50-56-58-60-62-64 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece double pointed needles or a short circular needle size 5.5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches cast on in the side under sleeve = 58-64-68-70-74-76 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under sleeve and begin round here. Work in stocking stitch and continue with stripes as on body. When piece measures 31-30-29-27-26-24 cm from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke), knit 1 round while increasing 10-12-12-14-14-12 stitches evenly = 68-76-80-84-88-88 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Loosely cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use double pointed needles size 5.5 mm. Sleeve measures approx. 35-34-33-31-30-28 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Om de andere naald wordt daar mee bedoeld: elke toer weer? of zit daar een toer tussen?

Dag Rox,

Om de andere wordt mee bedoeld: de ene naald wel en de andere naald niet.

Berit 04.05.2019 - 13:04:

Strikker str L, etter halsens vrangbord , opplegg 100 masker økes til 120 masker. Merketråene settes først gang etter 22 masker som er halve bakstykket, men etter siste merketråd skal det gjenstå 27 masker som er den andre halvdel av bakstykket. Det stemmer ikke med 120 masker , men det gjenstår 22 masker som tilsvarer andre halvdel av bakstykket, tilsammen 44 masker, da tilsvarer det de 120 som var utgangspunktet for denne omgangen. Er det en trykkfeil i oppskriften ?

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 08:48:

Hei Berit. Det har du helt rett i, du skal ha igjen 22 masker slik at det er like mange masker på for- og bakstykket. Vi skal få rettet dette i oppskriften. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse
