EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 92 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 30) = 3.1. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 3rd stitch (approx.). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

ELEVATION (back of neck):
To make the jumper slightly higher at the back of the neck, you can work an elevation as described here. Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid back. Start from the right side with petrol cerise and knit 13-14-15-15-16-17 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 26-28-30-30-32-34 stitches back. Turn, tighten strand and knit 39-42-45-45-48-51 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 52-56-60-60-64-68 stitches back. Turn, tighten strand and knit 65-70-75-75-80-85 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 78-84-90-90-96-102 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and knit to mid back. Then work YOKE as described in the text.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back are not tight. You can use a larger size needle when working pattern if this is a problem.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body and mid under sleeves):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at the marker thread).
On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeves): 
Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

CASTING OFF TIP:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with a larger size needle or make 1 yarn over after approx. each 8th stitch at the same time as casting off (yarn overs cast off as normal stitches).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The neck and yoke are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. Then the yoke is divided for body and sleeves and the body 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 92-96-100-104-108-112 stitches with short circular needle size 3.5 mm and petrol cerise. Knit 1 round then work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm.
Knit 1 round where you increase 30-32-34-34-36-38 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 122-128-134-138-144-150 stitches. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the round (= mid front) – the yoke is measured from this marker.
Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and knit 1 round (yarn overs knitted twisted).
You can now work an ELEVATION in the back of the neck – read description above. If you do not want an elevation go straight to YOKE.

YOKE:
Work A.1 in the round (the number of stitches does not fit to begin with as each repeat has 10 stitches, but this does not matter as the first rounds are one-coloured). Continue the pattern. Read KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in A.1, increase stitches evenly spaced as described below – remember INCREASE TIP-1:
Arrow-1: Increase 40-44-46-46-48-56 stitches evenly spaced = 162-172-180-184-192-206 stitches.
Arrow-2: Increase 28-28-30-36-38-44 stitches evenly spaced = 190-200-210-220-230-250 stitches (there is now room for 19-20-21-22-23-25 repeats of A.1 with 10 stitches).
Arrow-3: Increase 22-30-40-48-54-58 stitches evenly spaced = 212-230-250-268-284-308 stitches.
Arrow-4: Increase 22-30-36-44-54-56 stitches evenly spaced = 234-260-286-312-338-364 stitches (there is now room for 9-10-11-12-13-14 repeats of A.1 with 26 stitches).
Arrow-5: Increase 16-20-24-28-22-26 stitches evenly spaced = 250-280-310-340-360-390 stitches (there is now room for 25-28-31-34-36-39 repeats of A.1 with 10 stitches).
Arrow-6: Increase 12-14-8-6-10-12 stitches evenly spaced = 262-294-318-346-370-402 stitches.
When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. 18-18-18-21-21-21 cm from the marker on the neck.
Continue with stocking stitch and petrol cerise until the piece measures 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm from the marker on the neck.
Now divide the yoke for body and sleeves by working the next round as follows: Work 38-42-45-50-55-61 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece), place the next 54-62-68-72-74-78 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 77-85-91-101-111-123 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), place the next 54-62-68-72-74-78 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 39-43-46-51-56-62 stitches in stocking stitch (= ½ back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 166-182-198-218-242-266 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread on each side of the body in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches cast on under each sleeve. Allow the threads to follow your work onwards; they are used when increasing in the sides.
Start the round at one of the marker threads and work stocking stitch in the round with petrol cerise.
When the piece measures 6 cm from the division in all sizes increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 6th round a total of 4 times in each side = 182-198-214-234-258-282 stitches.
Continue working until the piece measures 29 cm from the division in all sizes (there is approx. 3 cm left to finished length; you can try the jumper on and continue working to desired length). 
Knit 1 round where you increase 50-54-58-66-70-78 stitches evenly spaced = 232-252-272-300-328-360 stitches. This is done to avoid the rib being tight.
Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – read CASTING OFF TIP! The jumper measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 54-62-68-72-74-78 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles/short circular needle size 4.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 60-68-76-80-84-88 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches under the sleeve and allow the thread to follow your work onwards; it will be used when decreasing mid under sleeve.
Start the round at the marker thread and work stocking stitch in the round with petrol cerise. When the sleeve measures 3-3-3-2-2-2 cm from the division decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-1½-1-1-1-1cm a total of 3-7-10-11-11-13 times = 54-54-56-58-62-62 stitches.
When the sleeve measures 15-15-16-16-16-17 cm from the division increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 4-4-3-3-2-2 cm a total of 3 times = 60-60-62-64-68-68 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 39-38-36-35-33-32 cm from the division (there is approx. 3 cm left to finished length; you can try the jumper on and continue working to desired length).
Knit 1 round where you increase 16-16-18-20-20-20 stitches evenly spaced = 76-76-80-84-88-88 stitches.  
Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off loosely with knit over knit and purl over purl – remember CASTING OFF TIP!
The sleeve measures approx. 42-41-39-38-36-35 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Lara, ad ogni punto che lavori fai finta di dover cambiare colore: quello è il significato di "intrecciare". Ovviamente poi il punto lo devi lavorare col filo del colore giusto, ma ti porti dietro anche l'altro. Spero di essere stata più chiara,

Ilovedogs 05.08.2019 - 18:32:

Lara, il metodo che uso io consiste nel intrecciare i due o più fili ad ogni punto, non ogni 3 o 4 punti. E' un po' più faticoso, anche perché i fili si avvolgono molto e bisogna "strecciarli" molto spesso, però ti garantisco che il risultato è perfetto...

Lara 01.08.2019 - 18:27:

Ilovedogs, cosa intendi dire con "intrecciandolo ad ogni punto? Te lo chiedo perchè per ora ho fatto solo due lavori con il jaquard ma il motivo tira molto e non fa un bell'effetto! Grazie

DROPS Design 02.08.2019 kl. 19:08:

Buonasera Lara, per fare in modo che il lavoro non risulti tirato durante la lavorazione a jacquard, ogni 3 o 4 maglie consecutive con un colore, bisogna avvolgere i 2 capi in modo da "portarsi dietro" anche il colore non al momento in uso. E' fondamentale però non tirare troppo i fili, altrimenti il lavoro risulta arricciato. Buon lavoro!

Ilovedogs 01.08.2019 - 15:51:

Volevo solo dirvi, e consigliarvi, il segreto perché la maglia lavorata a jaquard non abbia fili lunghi in cui si possano infilare le dita, o che i punti "tirino": si devono portare i due o più fili fio alla fine del ferro in lavorazione intrecciandolo ad ogni punto. Provate! Vedrete che il lavoro conserva l'elasticità della maglia monocolore.

Barbara 24.07.2019 - 08:39:

Modello di grande effetto e versatile.

Anna Maria 13.07.2019 - 23:35:

Il modello e molto bello va bene anche per uomo?

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 10:00:

Buongiorno Anna Maria. Molto probabilmente le misure e quindi il numero di maglie saranoa da modificare per la taglia corretta. Per un aiuto più personalizzato, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Kathrin 13.07.2019 - 09:53:

Super toll,würde ich gerne stricken.

Assa 13.07.2019 - 00:27:

Sehr edeles Muster und schöne Farbkomination

Kasia 03.07.2019 - 08:55:

Jak dla mnie super. Już się nie mogę doczekać, kiedy będę mogla wydziergać.
