EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

STRIPES:
Work stripes with 2 strands and stocking stitch as follows:
Work diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked vertically, work diagram A.2 - choose diagram for your size. When A.2 has been worked vertically, work A.3. Then work with goldenrod until finished measurements.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 4) = 23. 
In this example decrease by knitting every 22nd and 23rd stitch together.

INCREASE TIP-1 (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. Repeat in the other side (= 4 stitches increased on round). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 150 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 30) = 5. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 5th stitch. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Work until 2 stitches remain before first marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over. Repeat at each of the remaining marker threads (= 8 stitches increased on round).
On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Work sleeves in the round on a short circular needle/double pointed needles. Work entire piece is knitted in 2 strands and stripes.

YOKE:
Cast on 92-96-100-104-108-112 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with 2 strands off white. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 2 cm. Knit 1 round while decreasing 4 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly) = 88-92-96-100-104-108 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Knit next round as follows: Work 15-16-17-18-19-20 stitches (= half back piece), insert a marker thread here, work 14 stitches (= sleeve), insert a marker thread here, work 30-32-34-36-38-40 stitches (= front piece), insert a marker thread here, work 14 stitches (= sleeve), insert a marker thread here and work the remaining 15-16-17-18-19-20 stitches on round (= half back piece).
Now work STRIPES - read explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME on first round begin increase for RAGLAN – read explanation above. Increase like this every other round 16-19-21-23-25-28 times in total = 216-244-264-284-304-332 stitches on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When all increases are done, continue until piece measures 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm from cast-on edge and down mid back. Work next round as follows: Work the first 30-33-36-40-44-49 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 48-56-60-62-64-68 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeves), work the next 60-66-72-80-88-98 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 48-56-60-62-64-68 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeves), work the remaining 30-33-36-40-44-49 stitches on round (= half back piece). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 136-148-164-180-200-220 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast-on in the side under the sleeves (= 4-4-5-5-6-6 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Move the marker thread upwards when working. Continue in stocking stitch and stripes. When piece measures 4 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread - read INCREASE TIP-1. Increase like this approx. every 5-5-8-8-8-8 cm 4-4-3-3-3-3 times in total = 152-164-176-192-212-232 stitches. When piece measures 25 cm, increase 28-32-36-40-44-48 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 180-196-212-232-256-280 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) for 2 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle size if needed. Jumper measures approx. 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 48-56-60-62-64-68 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece back on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the new 8-8-10-10-12-12 stitches cast on under sleeve = 56-64-70-72-76-80 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches (= 4-4-5-5-6-6 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Work in stocking stitch and stripes as before. When sleeve measures 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease in the different sizes as follows:
Size S: Decrease approx. every 4 cm 7 times in total.
Size M: Decrease alternately every 2 and 3 cm 10 times in total.
Size L: Decrease approx. every 2 cm 12 times in total.
Size XL: Decrease alternately every 1 and 2 cm 13 times in total.
Size XXL: Decrease every cm 14 times in total.
Size XXXL: Decrease every cm 14 times in total.
When all decreases are done, there are 42-44-46-46-48-52 stitches on round. When sleeve measures 29-27-26-24-22-21 cm, increase 10-12-14-14-16-16 stitches evenly = 52-56-60-60-64-68 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) for 2 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle size if needed. Sleeve measures approx. 31-29-28-26-24-23 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Buongiorno. Vorrei lavorare questo modello col filato Baby Alpaca Silk e volevo usare il convertitore di filati. Poiché questo lavoro è da effettuare con due capi, mi sbaglio, o la quantità da indicare è metà di quella indicata? Saluti e grazie.

DROPS Design 28.05.2019 kl. 22:43:

Buongiorno Lorena. Alpaca e BabyAlpaca hanno lo stesso metraggio: 167 m per 50 g. La quantità di BabyAlpaca necessaria è la stessa di quella indicata nel modello. Qui può trovare indicazioni utili sulla sostituzione di filati. Buon lavoro!

Fin model - kommer der en opskrift?
