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 TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 74 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 7.4.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 7th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

STRIPES:
STRIPE 1: Work * 1 round with dark grey, 2 rounds with grey *, work from *-* for 9-10-10-10-11-11 cm = 3 1/2”-4”-4”-4”-4 3/8”-4 3/8” and then 1 round with dark grey
STRIPE 2: Work 3-3-3-3½-3½-3½ cm = 1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/4”-1 1/4”-1 1/4” with grey.
Repeat stripes 1 and 2 one more time, then work stripe 1 one more time.
Then work with grey to finished length.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for yoke):
Increase alternately before and after each marker thread.
Increase by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

BINDING OFF TIP:
To avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with a ½ size larger needle.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The neck and yoke are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves and the body continued in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 74-78-82-86-90-96 stitches with short circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and grey. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above. Then knit 1 round where you increase 10-6-9-10-6-8 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 84-84-91-96-96-104 stitches. Then work yoke as described below.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 5 mm = US 8. Insert 12-12-13-12-12-13 marker threads in the piece (allow the threads to follow your work onwards; they will be used when increasing), i.e. work the next round as follows:
Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round, work 7-7-7-8-8-8 stitches in stockinette stitch, * insert 1 marker thread, work 7-7-7-8-8-8 stitches in stockinette stitch *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 12-12-13-12-12-13 marker threads on the round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Continue with stockinette stitch and STRIPES – read description above, at the same time as you increase 1 stitch at each of the 12-12-13-12-12-13 marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 7-7-2-8-8-4 times, then every 4th round a total of 16-17-20-18-19-22 times = 360-372-377-408-420-442 stitches. Continue with stockinette stitch and grey and on the next round adjust the number of stitches to 360-372-380-404-416-440 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 38-40-41-43-45-47 cm = 15”-15 3/4”-16 1/8”-17”-17 3/4”-18 1/2” from after the neck.
The next round is worked as follows:
Work 146-152-156-166-172-182 stitches (= back piece), place the next 34-34-34-36-36-38 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 146-152-156-166-172-182 stitches (= front piece), place the next 34-34-34-36-36-38 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 304-316-328-348-364-384 stitches. Continue working in the round with stockinette stitch and grey. When the piece measures 5-5-6-6-6-6 cm = 2”-2”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”-2 3/8”-2 3/8” from the division knit 1 round where you increase 48-52-52-56-60-64 stitches = 352-368-380-404-424-448 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2) for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl – read BINDING OFF TIP.

SLEEVE:
Place 34-34-34-36-36-38 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle size 5 mm = US 8 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 40-40-42-44-46-48 stitches. Continue in the round with stockinette stitch and grey until the piece measures 13-11-11-9-8-6 cm = 5 1/8”-4 3/8”-4 3/8”-3 1/2”-3 1/8”-2 3/8” from the division (or to desired length; there is approx. 13 cm = 5 1/8” left to finished length – NOTE: Shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 4-4-6-8-6-8 stitches evenly spaced = 44-44-48-52-52-56 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm = US 6 and work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2) for 13 cm = 5 1/8”. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Where are the videos for help? This pattern translation shouldn't be this hard to follow. I'm jumping back and forth trying to figure out these increases. I think I'll have to rip it out because of the explanation/tip-2. Hopefully second time will go smoother. 😬

DROPS Design 11.09.2019 kl. 07:42:

Dear Mrs Holecheck, the increase-tip-2 explains how to increase before or after the markers; you will first increase before each marker then on first increase you will increase after each marker, ie you will increase 12-13 stitches (= 12-13 markers). Repeat the increase like this, ie the 3rd time you will increase before each marker, then the 4th time you will increase after each marker, and so on. Happy knitting!

Me encanta esta pagina

Delchet 31.08.2019 - 18:46:

Bonjour Pour les augmentations (2)pour l empiècement augmenter alternativement avant et après chaque marqueur c’est à dire sur le même rang ou bien tantôt un rang avant et le prochain après? Merci

DROPS Design 02.09.2019 kl. 10:11:

Bonjour Mme Delchet, on va d'abord augmenter avant chaque marqueur, puis au tour d'augmentations suivant, on augmentera après chaque marqueur, et on va continuer ainsi, 1 tour d'augmentations avant chaque marqueur et 1 tour d'augmentations après chaque marqueur. Bon tricot!

Dieser Poncho-Pullover gefällt mir sehr gut und das dunkle Boucle für die Streifen habe ich noch vorrätig. Den Poncho werde ich demnächst anstricken.
