EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.2, A.3 and A.4). The diagrams show all rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

KNITTING TIP:
In this pattern you knit up stitches along the armholes and the sleeves are worked top down. This is to control the sleeve-length. If you would like to work the sleeves separately and sew them in afterwards, this can be done by casting on the same number of stitches as are knitted up along the armholes and then follow the instructions in the text. To sew in the sleeves place the sleeve under the garter stitch edge along the armholes so the edge is visible – sew in the outermost stitch along the garter stitch edge.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 44 stitches) and divide by number of decreases to be made (e.g. 10) = 4.4. All decreases are worked from the right side!
In this example decrease by knitting together alternately each 3rd and 4th stitch and each 4th and 5th stitch.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for mid under sleeve): 
Decrease 1 stitch before the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together if this stitch should be a knit stitch or purl 2 together if this stitch should be a purl stitch.
Decrease 1 stitch after the marker thread as follows: Knit 2 twisted if this stitch should be a knit stitch or purl 2 twisted together if this stitch should be a purl stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The front and back pieces are worked back and forth with circular needle, bottom up. The shoulder seams are sewn together, then stitches are knitted up around the armholes for the sleeves – read KNITTING TIP! The sleeves are worked back and forth with circular needle until the sleeve cap is finished, then the sleeve is continued in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles to finished length. The bottom of the armhole is sewn together and finally the neck is worked.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 108-116-124-132-140-156 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, * knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 1 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this rib for 2 cm but adjust so the last row is worked from the right side.
Purl 1 row from the wrong side with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm.
Now start the pattern by working the next row from the right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 16-20-24-24-28-36 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-7-9 repeats of 4 stitches), work A.2 (= 23-23-23-26-26-26 stitches), A.3 (= 28-28-28-30-30-30 stitches), A.4 (= 23-23-23-26-26-26 stitches), A.5 over the next 16-20-24-24-28-36 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-7-9 repeats of 4 stitches), and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm cast off 1-3-5-7-9-13 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows for the armholes = 106-110-114-118-122-130 stitches. Continue the pattern as before but now with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch on each side towards the armholes.
When the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, decrease 10 stitches evenly over the middle 44-44-44-48-48-48 stitches on the row – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 96-100-104-108-112-120 stitches left. On the next row (wrong side), cast off the middle 36-36-38-38-40-40 stitches for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue the pattern and cast off 1 stitch on the next row from the neck = 29-31-32-34-35-39 stitches left on shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 55-57-59-61-63-65 cm. Knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other shoulder in the same way. The back piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from the shoulder down.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 108-116-124-132-140-156 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine. Purl 1 row (= wrong side). The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, * knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 1 and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this rib for 2 cm but adjust so the last row is worked from the right side.
Purl 1 row from the wrong side with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm.
Now start the pattern by working the next row from the right side as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 16-20-24-24-28-36 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-7-9 repeats of 4 stitches), A.2 (= 23-23-23-26-26-26 stitches), A.3 (= 28-28-28-30-30-30 stitches), A.4 (= 23-23-23-26-26-26 stitches), A.5 over the next 16-20-24-24-28-36 stitches (= 4-5-6-6-7-9 repeats of 4 stitches) and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue this pattern.
When the piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm, cast off 1-3-5-7-9-13 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows for the armholes = 106-110-114-118-122-130 stitches. Continue the pattern as before but now with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch on each side towards the armholes.
When the piece measures 47-49-51-52-54-56 cm, decrease 10 stitches evenly over the middle 44-44-44-48-48-48 stitches on the row = 96-100-104-108-112-120 stitches left. On the next row (wrong side) place the middle 20-20-22-22-22-22 stitches on 1 thread for the neck and each shoulder is finished separately. Continue the pattern and cast off at the beginning of each row from the neck as follows: Cast off 2 stitches 3 times and then 1 stitch 3-3-3-3-4-4 times = 29-31-32-34-35-39 stitches left on the shoulder. Continue working until the piece measures 55-57-59-61-63-65 cm. Knit 1 row from the right side and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Work the other shoulder in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the cast-off edge.

SLEEVE:
Knit up stitches along the armhole on the front and back pieces. Start in the corner of the armhole on the one side of the piece where stitches were cast off for the armhole and knit up from the right side 76-80-84-88-92-96 stitches inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Merino Extra Fine (do not knit up stitches along the bottom of the armhole) – read KNITTING TIP!
Work A.1 back and forth with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch on each side. When the sleeve measures 1-2-3-4-5-7 cm from where stitches were knitted up insert 1 marker on the row; this marker shows where the sleeve will be sewn to the bottom of the armhole and the sleeve is now measured from this marker!
Continue by working the sleeve in the round. Change to short circular needle or double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and allow it to follow your work onwards; it will be used when decreasing mid under the sleeve.
Continue A.1 in the round over all stitches (= 19-20-21-22-23-24 repeats of 4 stitches). When the sleeve measures 3-2-3-2-3-2 cm from the marker decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this every 3-3-2½-2½-2-2 cm a total of 15-16-17-18-19-20 times = 46-48-50-52-54-56 stitches.
Continue working until the sleeve measures 49-48-47-46-45-42 cm from the marker (there is approx. 2 cm left to finished length; you can try the jumper on and work to desired length).
Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib (= knit 1 / purl 1) for 2 cm. Loosely cast off with knit. The sleeve measures approx. 52-52-52-52-52-51 cm from where stitches were knitted up. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the side seams – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so the seam is flat. Sew the sleeve to the bottom of the armhole from the marker to the corner on each side.

NECK:
Knit up from the right side with short circular needle size 3.5 mm approx. 80 to 94 stitches around the neck (including the stitches on the thread in front).
Purl 1 round. Knit 1 round where you increase evenly to 90-92-94-96-100-102 stitches. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 1) for approx. 3 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Bonjour Madame, et merci beaucoup pour votre réponse. Je m'excuse de ne pas vous avoir saluée lors de mon précédent message. Bien à vous. Cordialement

Garrie McDaniel 16.07.2019 - 21:01:

Very nice

Garrie McDaniel 16.07.2019 - 21:00:

Very nice and loving for all

CARON 16.07.2019 - 10:23:

Serait-il possible d'avoir une photo du dos de cet ouvrage. Car si je comprends bien, le dos est également tricoté avec les torsades et non uniquement au point de riz double ? Par avance, merci de votre retour.

DROPS Design 16.07.2019 kl. 14:47:

Bonjour Mme Caron, nous n'avons pas de photos du dos de ce pull, il est identique au devant, autrement dit, on va tricoter les mêmes diagrammes que pour le devant (mêmes torsades et point de riz double de chaque côté), seule l'encolure sera différente, elle sera plus haute pour le dos que pour le devant. Bon tricot!
