Dec as follows from RS: Beg 2 sts before st with marker: K 2 tog, K 1 (marker is in this st), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

If knitting gauge is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the raglan dec will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra row without dec evenly spaced between dec.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 147-161-177-193-211-233 sts (includes 6 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Work 4 rows in GARTER ST - see explanation above.

When piece measures 32-33-34-34-35-35 cm / 12½"-13"-13 3/8"-13 3/8"-13 3/4"-13 3/4" (on a row from RS), work in garter st over 12 sts in each side (= 6 sts on each side of marker in each side), work the remaining sts as before.
When 5 rows in garter st have been worked over the 12 sts in each side, bind off the middle 8 sts of these sts for armholes on next row from WS (bind off with K from WS) = 131-145-161-177-195-217 sts. Now piece measures approx. 34-35-36-36-37-37 cm / 13 3/8"-13 3/4"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"-14½"-14½".

Work 1st row from RS as follows: Work over right front piece as before, cast on 41-45-49-53-55-59 new sts over the armhole, work in stockinette st over back piece, cast on 41-45-49-53-55-59 new sts over the other armhole, work over left front piece as before = 213-235-259-283-305-335 sts.

Work 1 row with the same pattern. On next row from RS dec for raglan in each of the 4 transitions between body and sleeves (i.e. 8 dec per dec-row) - READ DECREASE TIP AND KNITTING TIP!
Repeat dec on every 4th row a total of 3-2-0-0-0-0 times, and on every other row a total of 8-11-15-16-17-19 times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 36-37-38-39-40-41-42 cm / 14½''-15''-15¼''-15¾''-16 1/8''-16½'', bind off for button holes - see explanation above.

Guten Tag, die Raglanabnahmen werden ja immer von der Vorderseite gemacht. Wenn also in der Anleitung beispielsweise in jeder 2. Reihe abgenommen werden muss, entspricht das der 3. Reihe des Musters, oder? Ich bitte um Rückmeldung. Herzlichen Dank.

DROPS Design 20.04.2017 kl. 13:47:

Liebe Marion, die Raglanabnahmen werden immer von der Vorderseite gemacht = in jeder 2. Reihe. (= 1 Reihe mit Abnahmen, 1 Reihe ohne Abnahmen, Muster gleichzeitig stricken). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sommer 21.01.2016 - 12:33:

Bonjour! Pourriez vous m'indiquer la taille des boutons utilisés, je ne les trouve pas sur votre site. Merci

DROPS Design 21.01.2016 kl. 16:53:

Bonjour Sommer, vous trouverez tous les boutons ici, les n°522 font 20 mm. Bon tricot!

SusaFried 17.03.2014 - 15:11:

Sehr schönes Muster! Absolutes Lieblingsstück! Vielen Dank für diese Anleitung, auch mit anderen Garnen echt süß!

138-8 is knitted in the round; 138-9 forth and back: that explains the difference!

Sir Napsalot 29.12.2013 - 03:15:

I have a question about the Pattern. Specifically, "Row 4: K." Yet, in your DROPS 138-8 Summer Violet Top with a similar pattern, it says "Round 4: P." Obviously it is easy to test the pattern either way, but simpler to just ask for clarification.

DROPS Design 30.12.2013 kl. 15:31:

Dear Sir Napsalot, this jacket is worked back and forth, the top 138-8 is worked in the round, so that Round 4 should be K from WS (138-9) and P from RS (138-8). Happy knitting!

Simple y elegante, el canesú precioso.

Soverini 20.04.2012 - 15:00:

Puis-je tricoter ce modele avec 2 aiguilles droites je ne veux pas d'aiguille circulaire.merci

DROPS Design 20.04.2012 kl. 15:21:

Bonjour Soverini. Cette veste se tricote en allers et retours sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles. Vous pouvez tout à fait utiliser des aiguilles droites, mais vos mailles seront plus à l'étroit. Bon tricot !

Kiva malli, en pidä väristä.

Petra Kneer 20.02.2012 - 01:21:

Hallo, warum wird die Passe/Raglan nicht von begonnen werden. So mache ich es immer so und nehme an den 4 Stellen jeweils zu und kann bei ausreichender Raglanlänge die Ärmel stillegen und Rücken- und Vorderteile zusammen beenden. Gruß Petra Kneer

DROPS Design 21.02.2012 kl. 16:02:

Raglanpassen können auf verschiedene Weisen gestrickt werden. Hier hat die Designerinn die beschriebene Variante gewählt.
