PATTERN ON YOKE:
See diagrams M.1 - M.3. Firstly work diagrams M.1, M.2, and M.3 1 time vertically, then diagram M.2 0-0-0 (1-1) time = 25-25-25 (30-30) rows in total.
PATTERN ON BODY/SLEEVE:
See diagrams M.4 and M.5. First work diagram M.4 and then diagram M.5 1 time vertically.
--------------------------------------------------------

YOKE:
The piece is first worked back and forth and then in the round. Worked top down from the neck.
Cast on 49-57-65 (73-81) sts on circular needle size 2 mm with brown. Work rib back and forth (1st row = RS) as follows: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*, K last st on row. When rib measures approx. 1 cm, K next row from WS - While at the same time inc 7-9-11 (13-15) sts evenly on row = 56-66-76 (86-96) sts. On next row (= RS) switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work as follows: K 1 (= mid back), K 7-9-12 (14-16) (= right back piece), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 8-9-8 (9-10) (= right sleeve), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 20-24-30 (34-38) (= front piece), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 8-9-8 (9-10) (= left sleeve), K 1, insert a marker in this st, K 7-9-12 (14-16) (= left back piece), K 1 (= mid back) = 4 sts with markers in total before increase for raglan. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Continue in stocking st - While at the same time inc on next row from RS 1 st on each side of every st with marker = 8 new sts per inc. Repeat inc from RS on every other row a total of 12-12-12 (13-15) times, then on every 4th row a total of 2-3-4 (4-4) times. At the same time when piece measures 3-4-5 (5-6) cm from cast on edge, work PATTERN ON YOKE - Read explanation above. NOTE: Work the new sts gradually in the pattern. When piece measures 8-9-9 (10-10) cm from cast on edge, cast on 4 sts at the end of next row from WS (= sts at the bottom of neck opening, worked into the pattern) - Now work the piece in the round on circular needle from here.
When PATTERN ON YOKE has been worked (all inc are now done), there are 172-190-208 (226-252) sts on needle. Front piece = back piece = 48-54-62 (68-76) sts. Slip sts on sleeves and sts with markers (38-41-42 (45-50) sts for each sleeve) on a stitch holder. Now divide the piece, front/back piece and sleeves are finished separately.

BODY:
Front piece + back piece = 96-108-124 (136-152) sts. Continue in the round on circular needle (round beg in the side). On the next round, work 1st round in diagram M.4 as follows: Cast on 4 sts for armhole, work 48-54-62 (68-76) sts (= front piece), cast on 8 sts for armhole, work 48-54-62 (68-76) sts (= back piece), cast on 4 sts for armhole = a total of 112-124-140 (152-168) sts on needle. On next round (= 2nd round in diagram M.4), inc 0-4-4 (8-8) sts evenly = 112-128-144 (160-176) sts. Continue with diagram M.4 and then diagram M.5 1 time vertically. Then work in stocking st with brown until piece measures 15-17-19 (21-23) cm from armhole (piece measures approx. 26-29-32 (35-38) cm in total). Now divide the piece and front and back piece are finished separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 56-64-72 (80-88) sts. Then work back and forth (1st row = RS) in stocking st and dec for leg opening as follows: K 1 (= edge st), dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, work until 3 sts remain, dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, K 1 (= edge st). Continue in stocking st, repeat dec on every row from RS (= on every other row) inside 1 edge st in each side a total of 20-23-27 (30-34) times = 16-18-18 (20-20) sts remain. Then switch to circular needle size 2 mm and work rib (K 1/P 1) for 1½ cm, loosely cast off all sts.

FRONT PIECE:
= 56-64-72 (80-88) sts. Then work back and forth (1st row = RS) in stocking st and dec for leg opening as follows: K 1, dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, work until 3 sts remain, dec 1 st - Read DECREASE TIP 1 above, K 1. Continue in stocking st and repeat dec on every row inside 1 edge st in each side a total of 6-6-8 (8-10) times, then on every row from RS (= on every other row) a total of 14-17-19 (22-24) times = 16-18-18 (20-20) sts remain. Then switch to circular needle size 2 mm and work rib (K 1/P 1). On next row from RS, cast off for 3 button holes as follows: Work 1 st, * 1 YO, K the next 2 sts tog, work 4-5-5 (6-6) sts *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 1 YO, K the next 2 sts tog, work the last st. On next row work the YOs twisted. When rib measures approx. 1½ cm, loosely cast off all sts.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, top down. Slip sts from stitch holder on to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm = 38-41-42 (45-50) sts, and cast on 8 sts mid under sleeve = 46-49-50 (53-58) sts. Insert a marker before 1st st on round and move the marker upwards (round beg mid under sleeve). Continue with diagram M.4 and then diagram M.5 (beg with 1st st in the repetition on 1st round in diagram M.4). When sleeve measures 2-3-3 (3-3) cm, dec 1 st before and after marker - Read DECREASE TIP 2 above. Repeat dec every 1½-1½-2 (2½-2½) cm a total of 7-7-7 (6-8) times = 32-35-36 (41-42) sts. Continue until sleeve measures 12-15-18 (20-23) cm from armhole. On next round, dec 0-1-0 (1-0) sts = 32-34-36 (40-42) sts. Then switch to double pointed needles size 2 mm and continue in rib (K 1/P 1) for 3-3-3 (4-4) cm. Loosely cast off all sts.

NECK OPENING:
Knit up approx. 21 - 25 sts from RS along the opening on right back piece with brown on double pointed needles size 2 mm. Work rib (K 1/P 1) back and forth for approx. 1½ cm (= right band, 1st row = WS). Loosely cast off all sts. Repeat along the opening on left back piece, but on 2nd row (= RS) cast off for 3 button holes (1 button hole = 1 YO, K 2 tog) evenly on band. When rib measures approx. 1½ cm, loosely cast off all sts. Place band with button holes on top of the other at the bottom of neck opening and fasten through both layers with stitches.

LEG OPENING:
Knit up from RS approx. 16 sts per 5 cm along one leg opening inside 1 edge st with brown on circular needle size 2 mm, no of sts must be divisible by 2 + 1. On next row (= WS) work as follows: * P 1, K 1 *, finish with P 1. Continue back and forth in rib for 1 cm, loosely cast off all sts. Repeat on the other leg opening.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew buttons on to rib at the bottom of back piece, and on to right band in neck opening.

Yoke says to k last stitch on first row but does that stitch always get knit on every row? Not sure why?

DROPS Design 17.03.2018 kl. 13:25:

Dear Victoria, that stitch is the edge stitch. The edge stitches on bot the beginning and at the end of the rows are always knitted (on each row). This gives a definite egde to the piece that is easy to handle, easy to pick up stitches or sewn together later on. Happy Knitting!

Liisa Kaarla 27.07.2015 - 10:32:

Hei, Jeg strikker ikke til vanlig og lurte på hvordan man finner ut antall masker man skal legge opp i denne oppskriften hvis man ikke ville strikke den som body men som genser?

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 13:50:

Hej Liisa, Du strikker opskriften ovenfra og ned, så det er bare at afslutte med en kant når du har den længde du vil have. God fornøjelse!

Ina 08.11.2014 - 13:15:

Jeg lurer også på det med antall masker i halsen. Jeg strikker str 12/18mnd. Det blir for trang for min gutt iallefall, kanskje kan jeg ta de 6 maskene som skal legges opp før en starter med glattstrikk med i ribbekanten?

DROPS Design 25.11.2014 kl. 09:38:

Hej Ina, da de første pinde strikkes frem og tilbage, samtidig som du tager ud og da du bagefter strikker yderligere en kant på, så skal halsen være stor nok. God fornøjelse!

Anikjl 15.10.2014 - 10:09:

Dommage qu on ne peut le faire avec les aiguilles normales!!!

DROPS Design 15.10.2014 kl. 10:35:

Bonjour Anikjl, vous pouvez recompter chaque pièce pour la tricoter en allers-retours, ou bien vous aider des différents tutoriels vidéo pour apprendre à tricoter en rond. Bon tricot!

Sanne 13.10.2014 - 23:00:

Kan det virkelig passe, at der kun skal være 47 masker rundt i halsen i str. 1-3 måneder? Synes den virker meget lille, har lige strikket en anden body i samme str., som har hele 80 masker i halsen.

DROPS Design 23.10.2014 kl. 10:42:

Hej Sanne, Det lyder som om det er for lidt... Vi skal se på den så kommer vi tilbage med en rettelse! Takf for information!

Morgane 26.09.2014 - 22:53:

There are not enough stitches on my sleeves to do complete repetitions of the charted pattern. How do I maintain the pattern in the sleeves?

DROPS Design 29.09.2014 kl. 09:18:

Dear Morgane, you are correct, maintain the pattern in the sleeves - nber of sts will not fit pattern because of dec. Happy knitting!

Mary 24.09.2014 - 20:19:

Vorderteil: 3 Knopflöcher einstriceken!

Daniela 24.09.2014 - 13:48:

Eine Frage zur Öffnung im Schritt. Bleibt dieser offen? Wird zusammengenäht? Oder gehören - wie ich es eher vermute noch drei der 6 Knöpfe hier angenäht? Dann jedoch die Knopflöcher nicht vergessen...

DROPS Design 24.09.2014 kl. 23:38:

Liebe Daniela, Sie arbeiten 2 x 3 Knopflöcher ein, beschrieben unter "Vorderteil" (das ist dann die Öffnung unten) und "Öffnung am Rücken".

Claudia 18.12.2013 - 18:47:

Hallo, ich glaube ich habe noch einen Fehler gefunden. Ich glaube, sie haben die Überschriften Vorderteil und Rückenteil vertauscht. Ein Body ist normalerweise hinten breiter und länger. Laut Ihrer Anleitung entsteht aber ein Body, der vorne breiter und länger ist.

DROPS Design 19.12.2013 kl. 07:47:

Liebe Claudia, wir haben es geprüft, die Überschriften sind richtig, wie im norwegischen Original. Dieser Body ist so geschnitten.

Claudia 17.12.2013 - 09:49:

Hallo, wieso soll ich die Umschläge für die Knopflöcher in der nächsten Reihe verschränkt stricken? Dabei entsteht dann doch kein Loch (jedenfalls bei mir nicht).

DROPS Design 19.12.2013 kl. 07:51:

Liebe Claudia, haben Sie die beiden Maschen daneben zusammengestrickt? Dann ergibt sich ein kleines Loch, dies ist am Vorderteil so gewünscht.
