Gauge: 17 sts x 22 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Decreasing tips (for raglan): Dec as follows from right side:
Start 4 sts before the marker: K 2 tog, K 4 (the marker is in the center of these 4 sts), slip 1 as if to knit, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows from wrong side:
Start 4 sts before the marker: P 2 tog, twisting sts, P 4 (the marker is in the center of these 4 sts), P 2 tog. (If it is too difficult to twist the sts, sl them, return to left needle 1 by 1, twisting each, and then P 2 tog).

Cast on 160-184-208-232 sts on circular needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 2 rows stockinette st, then establish rib as follows: P 1, *K 6, P 6*, repeat from *-* over 72-84-96-108 sts, K 6, P 1, place a marker (= side), P 1, *K 6, P 6*, repeat from *-* over 72-84-96-108 sts, K 6, P 1. Continue the rib as established. When the piece measures 10-15-15-15 cm and 20-30-30-30 cm inc 1 st at each side of each marker – P the increased sts – = 168-192-216-240 sts. When the piece measures 32-40-41-42 cm bind off 12 sts at each side for armhole (= K 3, P 6, K 3) = 72-84-96-108 sts remain on Front and Back. Lay piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 48-48-60-60 sts on double-pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 2 rows stockinette st, then knit rib (P 3, K 3) over all sts. When the piece measures 8-10-10-10 cm, change to * K 6, P 6 * rib as on Body – start at marker with P 3 so that the marker is centered in a P 6. When the piece measures 10-13-13-11 cm inc 1 st on both sides of the P 6 containing the marker every 3-3-3-3.5 cm a total of 12 times (knit the increased sts in the rib as you go along, i.e P first 6 inc sts, K next 6 sts) = 72-72-84-84 sts. When the piece measures 47-49-50-52 cm bind off 6 sts each side of marker = 60-60-72-72 sts remain. Lay piece aside and knit a second sleeve.

Yoke: Put the sleeves in on the same circular needles as Body where you bound off for armholes = 264-288-336-360 sts. Put a marker in each transition between front, back and sleeves = 4 markers. Knit 0-1-1-1 row before raglan shaping begins.

Raglan shaping: Dec 1 st at each side of all markers (= 8 decs) – see Decreasing tips above. Dec every other row 21-24-20-25 times and every row 3-0-10-5 times.
At the same time when the piece measures 49-59-61-64 cm put the 8-20-20-32 sts at center front on a st holder for the neck and knit back and forth. Bind off at each neck edge every other row: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times.
After all raglan and neck shaping is complete 56-68-68-80 sts remain and the piece measures approx. 56-66-68-71 cm to shoulder.

Neckband: Pick up approx. 16 sts for smallest size, 28 to 40 sts for other sizes at front neck (incl. sts on st holder) = 72 sts for smallest size, 96 to 120 sts for other sizes; join and place a marker at the join. P 1 row, K 1 row and P 1 row, then K 1 row, decreasing evenly distributed to 72-84-90-96 sts. Then knit rib (K 3, P 3) until the collar measures 10-10-12-12 cm. Bind off in rib. Fold the rib in half to wrong side and stitch in place.

Assembly: Sew opening under the sleeve.

Désolée j'ai mis mais yeux de femmes et j'ai vu que l'on doit répéter l'augmentation à 30cm

Marie Lefebvre 11.03.2019 - 23:15:

Pour la taille s/M vous dites d'augmenter à 15 cm de hauteur 1m de chaque côté des marqueurs =188. Il manque donc une autre série d'augmentation pour arriver à 192 tel qu'indiqué dans les explications .

Kari Ubeda 12.01.2019 - 10:38:

Vil strikke med Nord, to tråder, hvilken str.må jeg velge som tilsvarer s/m i eskimogarnet i oppskriften ? Og hvor mye garn av Nord må jeg kjøpe ?

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 08:41:

Hei Kari. Om det er genseren du vil strikke, så strikkes denne i Alaska, det er skjerfet som strikkes i Eskimo. Det skal gå helt fint å strikke genseren i 2 tråder Nord i steden, og følge oppskriftene og størrelsene som anvist. Vi anbefaler likevel at du strikker en prøvelapp så du er sikker på at strikkefastheten din stemmer overens med den som er angitt (17 m x 22 p på p 5 og glstrikk = 10 x 10 cm). Du kan bruke garnkalkulatoren vår for å regne ut hvor mye Nord du trenger å kjøpe. Fyll inn garnmengden i din størrelse, og Alaska, så kommer det opp. God fornøyelse

Christel 25.10.2017 - 18:12:

Rebonjour. Vraiment je suis bloquée. J’ai commencé le rang (en diminuant pour les raglans)puis mis les 20 mailles de côté pour l’encolure(taille L). Je ne sais pas si pour l’aller-Retour je dois couper le fils et continuer devant ou si je dois tourner mon travail et continuer en sens inverse. Je suis vraiment bloqué je ne trouve aucune vidéo explicative à ce sujet. Merci

DROPS Design 26.10.2017 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Christel, quand les mailles de l'encolure devant sont en attente, continuez en allers et retours: tricotez le rang à partir des mailles de l'encolure jusqu'aux dernières mailles côté encolure de l'autre côté, tournez et tricotez le rang retour. Continuez bien les diminutions du raglan, et en même temps, au début de chaque rang à partir de l'encolure (= des 2 côtés), rabattez 1 fois 2 m et 2 fois 1 m. Bon tricot!

Christel 11.10.2017 - 19:21:

Bonjour, Je me permets encore une fois de poser une question. Pour l’encolure Vous dites de diminué de chaque côté (1fois 2 m et 2 fois une maille). Je ne comprends pas comment faire lés diminutions. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 09:21:

Bonjour Christel, après avoir mis les mailles du milieu devant en attente, vous continuez en allers et retours - les rangs commencent maintenant d'un côté de l'encolure devant - en rabattant au début de chaque rang de chaque côté (= sur l'endroit et sur l'envers): 1 x 2 m et 2 x 1 m. Vous avez ainsi rabattu 4 m de chaque côté de l'encolure, avant et après les mailles en attente. Bon tricot!

Christel 03.10.2017 - 15:36:

Bonjour. J’arrive à l’empiecement et il est écrit de mettre les 20 mailles centrales sur un arrêt de mailles(taille L). De quelles mailles centrales parlez vous? Celles du devant ou celle du dos? Ou l’es deux ?

DROPS Design 03.10.2017 kl. 15:42:

Bonjour Christel, ce sont les mailles du milieu devant que l'on va mettre en attente pour l'encolure (mention ajoutée), continuez ensuite en allers et retours en rabattant pour l'encolure de chaque côté comme indiqué, et continuez les diminutions du raglan. Bon tricot!

Cheryl 27.01.2017 - 23:53:

Would anyone have a picture of the sleeve increases they could post.

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 10:44:

Dear Chery, you cannot post any picture here. For the sleeves you have to inc on each side of the mid P6 sts under sleeve and just inc to keep ribbing matching around (K3/P3). Happy knitting!

Debra Brown 16.12.2016 - 07:16:

Hello. I have a question about the neckline shaping. I am knitting size Large. At the end of the raglan and neck shaping, the pattern says that I should have 68 stitches total. Does this include the 20 stitches at the front placed on a stitch holder? Then the pattern says that when I pick up the stitches on the holder I should have more than 90 stitches total. How is this possible, if I only have 68 stitches at the end of the raglan and neck shaping?

DROPS Design 16.12.2016 kl. 09:43:

Dear Mrs Brown, there should be 68 sts left after all dec for raglan and neck shaping, then pick up sts along front piece: 20 sts on a st holder + pick up sts along both side of these sts (the cast off sts on each side) = you should have approx. 96-120 sts. P1 round, K1 round, P 1 round and on next K round dec evenly to adjust number of sts to 90 sts (in size L) then work ribbing over these 90 sts. Happy knitting!

Julie Côté 04.10.2016 - 02:46:

Excusez-moi encore, mais les augmentations ce font tout les ( cm ) selon la grandeur choisi c'est bien cela ?

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 10:02:

Bonjour Mme Côté, tout à fait, vous augmentez tous les 3 cm dans les 3 premières tailles, et tous les 3,5 cm dans la plus grande taille (manches). Bon tricot!

Julie Côté 03.10.2016 - 20:02:

Merci pour les explications de comment faire les augmentations. Maintenant mon autre problème est que les augmentations ne ce font pas de la même façon à gauche et à droite sinon elle ce pas esthétiques. Donc, pouvez vous me dire comment les faire pour qu'elles soit belles ? Merci de votre aide.

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 10:01:

Bonjour Mme Côté, les augmentations doivent être symétriques car elles se font en même temps avant le marqueur (avant les 3 m env) et après le marqueur (après les 3 m env) - vous allez ainsi augmenter 1 m de chaque côté de ces 6 m env, en tricotant les 6 premières augm. à l'end, puis les 6 suivantes à l'env, et ainsi de suite, avec toujours 6 m env au milieu sous la manche. Bon tricot!
