EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.6.
Patterns A.1 and A.6 are worked in rib.
Patterns A.2 to A.5 are worked in stocking stitch.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 76 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 12) = 6.3. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 6th stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

ELEVATION (back of neck):
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Start from the wrong side with dark grey and purl 8-8-8-9-9-9 stitches past the marker thread at the beginning of the round, turn, tighten the strand and knit 16-16-16-18-18-18 back. Turn, tighten the strand and purl 24-24-24-27-27-27, turn, tighten the strand and knit 32-32-32-36-36-36 back. Turn, tighten the strand and purl 40-40-40-45-45-45, turn, tighten the strand and knit 48-48-48-54-54-54 back. Turn, tighten the strand and purl to 15-15-15-18-18-18 stitches past the marker thread. Move the marker thread to this point. Then work YOKE as described in the text.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern with several colours, 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.

CASTING-OFF TIP:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can use a ½ size larger needle.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker thread, knit 2 together with dark grey (marker thread sits here), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 with dark grey and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The neck and yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, from mid back and top down. After the neck you can work an elevation at the back for a better fit. This elevation can be left out; the neck is then the same front and back – see description above. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 76-80-80-88-88-92 stitches with short circular needle size 4.5 mm and off-white. Change to dark grey and knit 1 round. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm, then work A.1 in rib – TAKE CARE when reading the symbols. Knit 1 round with dark grey where you increase 12-8-8-12-12-12-8 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP = 88-88-88-100-100-100 stitches. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm and insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round. You can now work an ELEVATION at the back of the neck – read description above or go straight to YOKE.

YOKE:
The first round is worked as follows: Work A.2a (= 8 stitches), A.2b over the next 12-12-12-18-18-18 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-3 repeats of 6 stitches) and A.2c (= 9 stitches) (= back piece), work A.3 (= 2 stitches, raglan-line), A.4 (= 11 stitches, sleeve), A.3 (= 2 stitches, raglan-line), A.2a (= 8 stitches), A.2b over the next 12-12-12-18-18-18 stitches (= 2-2-2-3-3-3 repeats of 6 stitches) and A.2c (= 9 stitches) (= front piece), work A.3 (= 2 stitches, raglan-line), A.4 (= 11 stitches, sleeve), A.3 (= 2 stitches, raglan-line). There are 96-96-96-108-108-108 stitches on the needle (= first increase to raglan is now completed).
Continue this pattern onwards; i.e. increase 1 stitch on each side of A.2 and A.4 as shown in the diagrams (= a total of 8 stitches increased every 2nd round). Read KNITTING TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time in height there are 192-192-192-204-204-204 stitches on the needle.
Continue this pattern onwards; i.e. the pattern is repeated as shown in A.2/A.4. Diagram A.2b is worked 4 more times in width each time the 24 rows are repeated in height. Continue to increase until you have increased a total of 19-22-25-25-28-31 times on each side of A.2/A.4. When the last increase is finished there are 240-264-288-300-324-348 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 19-22-25-25-28-31 cm from the neck-edge. Continue the pattern but without further increases. When the piece measures 22-24-25-27-29-31 cm from the neck-edge (making sure the next round is without pattern), work as follows:
Work 70-76-82-88-94-103 stitches as before (= back piece), place the next 48-54-60-60-66-66 stitches on 1 thread for the sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-6-12-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under the sleeve), work 72-78-84-90-96-108 stitches as before (= front piece), place the next 48-54-60-60-66-66 stitches on 1 thread for the sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-6-12-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under the sleeve) and work the remaining 2-2-2-2-2-5 stitches as before (= back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 156-168-180-192-216-240 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread on the one side of the piece, in the middle of the 6-6-6-6-12-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve. Allow the thread to follow your work onwards; it marks the beginning of the round. Work A.5 in the round (= 26-28-30-32-36-40 repeats of 6 stitches) – start on the right stitch and the right round in the diagram to continue the repeats of the pattern in both width and height.
Continue working until the piece measures approx. 32-32-33-33-33-33 cm from the division – adjust to after round 2 or 7 in A.5. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and knit 1 round with dark grey where you increase 28-32-36-36-40-48 stitches evenly spaced = 184-200-216-228-256-288 stitches. Work A.6 in rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). When A.6 is finished cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl and dark grey – read CASTING-OFF TIP.

SLEEVE:
Place the 48-54-60-60-66-66 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 5.5 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-6-6-12-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 54-60-66-66-78-78 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-6-6-12-12 stitches under the sleeve. Allow the thread to follow your work onwards; it will be used when decreasing under the sleeve.
Start the round by the marker thread. Work A.5 in the round (= 9-10-11-11-13-13 repeats of 6 stitches) – start on the right stitch and the right round in the diagram to continue the repeats of the pattern in both width and height; but the first and last stitch on the round are always worked with dark grey (to give neat decreases mid under the sleeve).
When the piece measures 1 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 1-2-1-1-3-2 times = 52-56-64-64-72-74 stitches. Then decrease like this every 4-3½-2½-2-1½-1½ cm a total of 8-9-12-12-14-15 times = 36-38-40-40-44-44 stitches left on the needles. Continue working until the sleeve measures 41-40-39-37-36-35 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke) – adjust to after round 2 or 7 in A.5. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and knit 1 round with dark grey where you increase 8-6-8-8-8-8 stitches evenly spaced = 44-44-48-48-52-52 stitches. Work A.6 in rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). When A.6 is finished cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl and dark grey – remember CASTING-OFF TIP. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the neck to the wrong side and sew the cast-on edge down with off-white – sew with small, neat stitches on the inside of the jumper (make sure the seam does not show on the right side and the seam is not tight).

Do you need help with this pattern?

Thank you for choosing a DROPS Design pattern. We take pride in providing patterns that are correct and easy to understand. All patterns are translated from Norwegian and you can always check the original pattern (DROPS 208-4) for measurements and calculations.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

Click here to see our yarn converter

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder closest to the neckline, and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

On a jacket measures are never taken along bands, unless specifically stated. Always measure inside band stitches when measuring the length.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

Hello, happy new year , i would like you to help me with the elevation. The elevation is suppose to be at the back of the jumber but when i make the last elevation (purl 15)following the instructions and start to knit the yoke, i start on the left side of the marker that has no elavation, this is the front of the jumber. To start the yoke and have the elavation at the back of the jumber i have to start with knit 8 and purl 16 ..... finish with knit 15. Am I right? is something I' m missing?

user icon DROPS Design 07.01.2021 kl. 12:58:

Dear Mrs Evangelatou, happy New Year :) after the elevation has been worked, purl until 15 sts after marker thread on mid back, then turn and start now yoke from the beginning of back piece (and not from mid back anymore). Happy knitting!

Masche der Runde) stricken, wenn diese Masche eine Doppelmasche (Wendemasche) ist, stricken Sie diese Masche "normal", damit kein Loch entseht. Sonnst können Sie auch den Faden vor dieser Masche auffassen und den verschränkt zusamment mit der Wendemasche stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Er strikkefastheden målt på pind 4,5 eller 5,5? :)

Hej Julie, du finder måleskitsen nederst i opskrifter sammen med en forklaring på hvordan den læses :)

Danke für die Antwort aber seit wann sind 22Maschen+11Maschen+22Maschen =54 Maschen wie in ihrer Antwort?

Lieber Herr Grabow, oops stimmt, es sind 55 Maschen, aber bei der Verteilung, wenn Sie die ersten 76 M für Rückenteil stricken sind es: die Maschen von A.2 + A.3 + die 1. Masche in A.4 - beim Vorderteil stricken Sie: A.3, A.2, A.3 + die 1. Masche in A.4, so haben Sie 78 Maschen für je Vorder- und Rückenteil und 54 M für jeden Ärmel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
