After the last raglan decrease I should have a total of 29 cm for size 4. The difference in measurement from start of yoke to end of yoke is 29-16=13 cm. If knitting according to gauge, that would be 34 rows. How can one accomplish that when one row is knitted when joining sleeves to torso, then, with 2 rows for each of 10 decreases, you knit an additional 20 rows for a total of 21 rows which is 8 cm and not 13 cm. What am I missing here?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 09:45:

Dear Diane, the 29 cm apply to the total length from bottom edge up to shoulder, not to last row worked, lay piece flat and measure from bottom edge to shoulder, there can be a difference between the number of rows worked to last dec for raglan and the total length to shoulder due to the raglan. Happy knitting!

Yvonne Pearsall 09.12.2018 - 02:43:

I would like to make this pattern for a 1 month old baby in 4ply. Can you help me please??

DROPS Design 09.12.2018 kl. 19:11:

Hi Yvonne! Use double yarn, but make sure that knitting tension is right! Happy knitting!

Sarah 10.11.2018 - 21:03:

Schöne Strickjacke!!! Aber leider etwas kompliziert beschrieben. Wenn schon die 1. Lochmusterreihe so genau beschrieben wird, warum nicht auch die 2.? Es sind ja nur die 2. Außerdem gibt es einen Fehler. Am Ende des Lochmusters, also vor dem Bündchen am Hals steht, dass die Arbeit xy cm haben soll. Das sind aber schon die Endmaße, wie man aus der Skizze entnehmen kann.

Sima Hurwitz 22.09.2018 - 09:25:

Hello, If I get the gauge on a 3.5 mm needle, should I use 3.5 mm and 2.5 for a smaller one? Thanks!

DROPS Design 22.09.2018 kl. 22:40:

Dear Sima, yes, if you reach the gauge with 3.5 mm, you have to use 3,5 mm and 2,5 mm. Happy knitting!

Ebrul 06.09.2018 - 15:22:

İch habe die Antwort in der Anleitung auf Englisch gefunden. Vielen Sanki dennoch:)

Ebrul 06.09.2018 - 12:31:

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage zu den cm-Angaben. 3 cm Bündchen, dann zu Nadel 4.5 wechseln. Soweit klar, dann nach 4 cm die erste Zunahme. Hier bin ich mir nicht sicher, ob 4 cm ab Anschlag oder ab der Reihe mit den Markierungsfäden. (Nach 13 cm für die Arme abketten erscheint mir ab Anschlag zu kurz aber sicher bin ich mir nicht.) Leider konnte ich es auch durch die Skizze nicht lösen. Ea wäre toll, wenn Sie mir weiterhelfen könnten. Liebe Grüße.

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 15:39:

Liebe Frau Ebrul, die Maschen für die Arme sind nach 13 cm von der Anschalgskante abgekettet: 13 cm + 4 cm + 4 cm = 21 cm gesamte Höhe wie in der Skizze. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeannie 18.08.2018 - 13:52:

I have just finished 10 decreases for raglan (125 Stitches) and my piece does not measure 29cm. If the finished length is 29cm. does that mean I start neckline now or knit without any more dec. to 29 cm.

DROPS Design 21.08.2018 kl. 07:56:

Hi Jeannie, Have you checked your knitting tension? You can continue to work without any more decreases to get the right measurement. Happy knitting!

River 22.06.2018 - 18:00:

Hi, I’m accessing the pattern on a mobile device and sadly don’t see the diagram explanation. The only sign that loads correctly is ”k2 together”, the boxes (symbols) next to the other diagram explanations are blank.

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 08:04:

Dear River, here are the keys to symbols (from top down): 1=K from RS, P from wS - 2=1YO - 3=slip 1 as if to K, K1, psso - 4=K2 tog - 5=slip 1 ask if to K, K2 tog, psso. - can you please let us know which phone/brower you are using so that we can check, thank you! Happy knitting!

Mc 06.06.2018 - 12:50:

Donc si je comprends bien : les 2 mailles ensemble se font avant le marqueur, et la maille glissée et passée sur la maille tricotée se trouvent dans le tricot de la manche ? Merci

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 13:08:

Bonjour! Oui, a la premiere augmentation du rang (il y en a 4 sur le meme rang), les 2 mailles ensemble se font avant le marqueur (sur le devant droit) et la maille glissée et passée sur la maille tricotée se trouvent sur la manche. Bon tricot!

Mc 06.06.2018 - 11:26:

Bonjour, N'y a t il pas un souci en ce qui concerne les diminutions du raglan ? Qu'elles soient avant ou après le marqueur elles se font de la même façon ? C'est peut être moi qui ne comprends pas quelque chose ! Merci

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 11:37:

Bonjour, les diminutions du reglan sont faites comme suit: commencer 2 m avant chaque marqueur: 2 m ens à l'end, (marqueur qui est entre les mailles), glisser 1 m à l'end, 1 m end, passer la m glissée par dessus la m tricotée. On diminue 8 mailles dans chaque rang avec les diminutions. Bon tricot!
