EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size in A.1. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. 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. Use a size larger needle when working pattern if this is a problem.
Make sure the knitting tension is correct in height as well, if this is too tight the yoke will be too short and the armholes too small!

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 4) = 20.5. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 20th and 21st stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

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

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: 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.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. You can work an elevation in the back of the neck for a better fit. This elevation can be left out; the neck will then be the same front and back – see description further down the text. After the yoke the body is continued in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

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

NECK:
Cast on 68-72-84-88-92-100 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and goldenrod. Knit 1 round then work rib in the round, knit 2, purl 2, for 4 cm.
Knit 1 round where you increase 2-3-1-2-3-0 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 70-75-85-90-95-100 stitches. Change to circular needle size 5 mm and knit 1 round. Now you can work an elevation in the back of the neck or go straight to yoke if you do not want an elevation.

ELEVATION (back of neck):
So the jumper is slightly higher at the back of the neck when working a round yoke, you can work an elevation as described here. Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Start from the right side, mid back, using goldenrod: Knit 11-11-12-13-13-14 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 22-22-24-26-26-28 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 33-33-36-39-39-42 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 44-44-48-52-52-56 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 55-55-60-65-65-70 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 66-66-72-78-78-84 stitches, turn, tighten strand and knit to mid back. Continue with YOKE as explained below.

YOKE:
Read KNITTING TIP!
Work A.1 over all stitches (= 14-15-17-18-19-20 repeats of 5 stitches).
Continue this pattern until there is 1 round left in A.1. There are 252-270-306-324-342-360 stitches on the needle. Work the last round in A.1, AT THE SAME TIME adjust the number of stitches to 246-274-304-322-344-362 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Then work the next round as follows working A.2 over A.1: Work 38-41-45-49-53-56 stitches as shown on the first row in A.2 (= half back piece), place the next 48-56-62-64-66-68 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 74-80-90-96-106-114 stitches as shown on the first row in A.2 (= front piece), place the next 48-56-62-64-66-68 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work 38-41-45-49-53-56 stitches as shown on the first row in A.2 (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! 

BODY:
= 162-174-192-210-228-246 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-10 new stitches. Continue with A.2 over all stitches. When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height continue with stocking stitch and goldenrod. When the piece measures 15 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads. Increase every 4-4-4-5-5-5 cm a total of 5 times = 182-194-212-230-248-266 stitches – read INCREASE TIP-2. When the piece measures 34-36-36-38-38-40 cm from the division, work 1 round where you increase 38-42-44-50-52-58 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 220-236-256-280-300-324 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work rib (knit 2, purl 2) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The jumper measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Place the 48-56-62-64-66-68 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-6-8-8-10 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 54-62-68-72-74-78 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-6-8-8-10 stitches under the sleeve. Work A.2 over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round adjust the number of stitches to 54-60-66-72-78-78 stitches. When the piece measures 4 cm, decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread under the sleeve; decrease every 5-3-2½-2-2-2 cm a total of 7-10-12-14-15-15 times = 40-40-42-44-48-48 stitches – read DECREASE TIP. When the sleeve measures 35-36-34-35-33-34 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke), knit 1 round with goldenrod where you increase 8-8-6-8-8-8 stitches evenly spaced = 48-48-48-52-56-56 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work rib (= knit 2, purl 2) for 5 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl; make sure the cast-off edge is not tight. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Kann ich dieses Modell auch in Drops Lima arbeiten? Wie rechne ich das um?

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 10:23:

Liebe Susanne, dieses Modell wird mit Nepal (= Garngruppe C) gestrickt, aber Lima gehört der Garngruppe B. Die Garnalternativen finden Sie durch unseren Garnumrechner finden; oder hier finden Sie alle Modellen, die mit Lima gestrickt werden können. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Katharina Amport 01.08.2019 - 15:44:

Meeresblau sind in L 50g, orange 100g angegeben, aber: Meeresblau sind die Sterne in Kombination mit natur über 10 Reihen und als Punkte im königsblau. Orange ist nur die Zackenreihe nahe am Halsausschnitt. Das scheint mir unlogisch.

DROPS Design 02.08.2019 kl. 09:18:

Orange hat noch eine weitere Zackenreihe, auf Brusthöhe in etwa. Dargestellt in Diagramm A.2. Sie werden in Größe L für Orange auch nicht die ganzen 100 g brauchen, aber eben mehr als nur 50 g, daher sind dann 100 g angegeben.

Katharina Amport 01.08.2019 - 08:14:

Wie schaut es mit den Materialmengen aus? Sollten nicht auch die noch geändert werden: Mehr Meeresblau und weniger Orange?

DROPS Design 01.08.2019 kl. 08:44:

Die Materialmengen stimmt. Es wurden lediglich die Symbole für Meeresblau und Violett im Diagramm vertauscht, Orange war ja von vornherein richtig. Schauen Sie genau hin, die Symbole für Orange und Meeresblau sind sich ähnlich... Orange hat einen etwas dickeren Kreis, Meeresblau eine dünnere Raute.

Katharina Amport 31.07.2019 - 08:25:

Die Sterne sind sollten doch in Meeresblau sein, sie sind aber mit dem Zeichen von Violett eingetragen

DROPS Design 31.07.2019 kl. 09:17:

Ja, da haben Sie Recht, violett und meeresblau sind tatsächlich vertauscht. Das wird in Kürze korrigiert.

Amport 30.07.2019 - 10:22:

Kann es sein, dass Sie in der Farbenlegende die Zeichen für Orange und Meeresblau verwechselt haben?

DROPS Design 30.07.2019 kl. 10:48:

Sie müssen das Diagramm auf den Kopf stellen, damit Sie die farbliche Reihenfolge richtig sehen. Der Pullover wird von oben nach unten gestrickt, das Diagramm aber von unten nach oben gelesen. Die Farben passen wie im Diagramm dargestellt. Viel Spaß beim Stricken! :-)
