EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge in height = 2 rounds; knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 104 stitches), and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 4) = 26.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 26th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes..
When decreasing knit each 25th and 26th stitch together.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1 and A.2).

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next row (wrong side) work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on either side of marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these stitches) slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back and top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 104-108-112-118-122-130 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above. Knit 1 round where you increase 4-6-14-2-4-8 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 108-114-126-120-126-138 stitches. Purl 1 round.
Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Now work pattern A.1 over all stitches (= 18-19-21-20-21-23 repeats of 6 stitches). Continue this pattern and increase as shown in the diagram. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed in height there are 234-247-273-300-315-345 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 10-10-10-13-13-13 cm from the cast-on edge. Then work A.2 (= 13-13-13-15-15-15 stitches) over A.1. When A.2 has been completed in height there are 306-323-357-380-399-437 stitches on the needle. Continue with stocking stitch and on the first row after A.2 adjust the number of stitches to 303-335-355-383-407-439 stitches – remember INCREASE/DECREASE TIP. Continue working until the piece measures 22-24-25-27-29-31 cm from the cast-on edge mid front. The next round is worked as follows:
Work 42-46-50-55-60-66 stitches as before (= half back piece), place the next 68-76-78-82-84-88 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 83-91-99-109-119-131 stitches as before (= front piece), place the next 68-76-78-82-84-88 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the last 42-46-50-55-60-66 stitches as before (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 183-199-219-239-263-287 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under each sleeve. Allow them to follow your work onwards; they will be used a little later when increasing. Work stocking stitch. When the piece measures 2 cm from the division increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP = 4 stitches increased. Increase like this every 3 cm a total of 9 times = 219-235-255-275-299-323 stitches. When the piece measures 28-28-29-29-29-29 cm from the division, knit 1 round where you increase 37-37-41-45-49-53 stitches evenly spaced = 256-272-296-320-348-376 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work A.3 (= 2 stitches) over all stitches. Continue this rib for 2 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast off edge being tight you can cast off with a size 4 mm needle. The jumper measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 68-76-78-82-84-88 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 76-84-88-92-96-100 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches under the sleeve and allow it to follow your work onwards; it will be used when decreasing. Start the round by the marker thread and work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 1 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4th-2nd-2nd-2nd-1st-1st round a total of 11-15-14-16-15-17 times = 54-54-60-60-66-66 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 17-16-15-13-12-10 cm from the division.
The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 9-9-10-10-11-11, make 1 yarn over, work from *-* to end of round = 60-60-66-66-72-72 stitches. On the next round work all yarn overs twisted to avoid holes and work as follows: * Knit 9-9-10-10-11-11, 1 stitch in garter stitch *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 30-29-28-26-25-23 cm from the division. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work A.3 (= 2 stitches) over all stitches. Continue this rib for 2 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast off edge being tight you can cast off with a size 4 mm needle. The sleeve measures approx. 32-31-30-28-27-25 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over (= hole)
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on next row work yarn over twisted (= NO hole)
= knit 2 together - NOTE: On the row marked with an arrow, displace the start of the round 1 stitch to the left; i.e. slip the first stitch onto the right needle without working it, then work the repeat in the round. The slipped stitch will be worked last. On the next round knit all stitches and then on the round after that return the start of the round to where it was again
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= round with displaced start

I bolen leser jeg at jeg skal følge mønster A3(= 2 masker) over alle masker. Hva menes her? Hvor er mønster A3?

DROPS Design 20.08.2019 kl. 09:59:

Hej. Vi menar att du ska sticka A3 hela pinnen ut. Du hittar A3 vid sidan av måleskissen. Lycka till!

Linda Jensen 23.06.2019 - 21:08:

Hei. Det mangler en tegnforklaring i oppskriften. Siste runde på A2, trekanttegnet; hvordan strikkes dette?

DROPS Design 24.06.2019 kl. 07:14:

Hei Linda. Det er 2 ulike symboler rett ved siden av hverandre. Du strikker altså slik: "ta 1 maske løs av pinnen som om den skulle strikkes rett, strikk 1 rett, løft den løse masken over masken som ble strikket" videre strikker du "2 rett sammen". God fornøyelse
