NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

DECREASE TIP (applies to raglan): Dec are on 1st, 3rd and 5th round in pattern repetition.
Dec as follows before markers: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after markers: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso. NOTE: When dec on 1st and 5th round, do not make 1 YO at markers (i.e. between dec).

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

The sleeve is worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 26-28-30-30-32-32 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Paris. K 1 row from WS, then work diagram M.1.
At the same time when piece measures 14 cm / 5½'', inc 1 st in each side. Repeat inc every 5-5-5-4-4-3½ cm / 2"-2"-2"-1½"-1½"-1 1/4" a total of 7-7-7-8-8-9 times = 40-42-44-46-48-50 sts – work the inc sts in pattern.
When piece measures approx. 47 cm / 18½'', loosely bind off 5 sts in each side - adjust to bind off on same pattern row as on body = 30-32-34-36-38-40 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

Als ik het patroon goed begrijp, brei je de mouwen heen en weer. Vanaf 47 cm neem je de mouwen op in het lijf. Hoe sluit je vervolgens de mouwen en werk je de restjes netjes weg? Het zijn namelijk wel heel veel losse draadjes. Groet, Renée

DROPS Design 28.01.2016 kl. 12:59:

Hoi Renée. Je kan de naden sluiten op meerdere manieren, kies de manier die je zelf het mooiste vindt. Je kan draadjes ook wegwerken op meerdere manieren, kijk in onze video index onder D en draadjes wegwerken.

Hej. Kan ikke helt regne ud hvorfor ærmerne ikke skal strikkes på rundpind. Kan det lade sig gøre at strikke rundt i stedet for frem og tilbage?

DROPS Design 21.05.2015 kl. 10:31:

Hej Mai, selvfølgelig kan du også strikke ærmerne rundt, da tager du bare ud på hver side af den midterste maske under ærmet. God fornøjelse!

Aine Flynn 18.04.2014 - 11:50:

I have knitted the main body on circular needle , back & forth. There are no instructions in how to sew up when finished. Should I have knitted it in a circle ?

DROPS Design 18.04.2014 kl. 14:36:

Dear Mrs Flynn, body is worked on the round on circular needle until piece measures 41-46 cm (see size), then bind off sts for armhole and put aside. Work sleeve back & forth until 47 cm, cast off sts for armhole and put all sts for body & sleeves onto same circular needle to work yoke in the round. Happy knitting!

Hej, försöker ännu en gång: Kan man låta de olika garnsorterna löpa upp med arbetets varv då man byter sorter eller måste man ta av garnet och fästa trådarna mellan varje garnkvalitet? Ser att det blir fyra varv mellan varje garnsorts användning.

Det gör man precis som man vill!

Elisabeth Skjervagen 23.03.2013 - 15:48:

Forklaring til diagram: I garnet Cotton viscose framgår det som om genseren skal strikkes rett på alle omganger, så fremt du strikker rundt. Går ut fra at det skal være samme fremgangsmåte som Garn: Paris og Vivaldi? en omgang r og et kast? Strikk r, samtidig som du kastet slippes ned?

DROPS Design 28.03.2013 kl. 13:45:

Ja, det er fuldstaendigt det samme

Aine Flynn 25.02.2013 - 20:22:

Can you explain the second line in the pattern FromRS ...Then from WS Is this 2 rows?

DROPS Design 26.02.2013 kl. 10:25:

Dear Mrs Flynn, this pattern is worked either in the round (body) or back and forth (after cast off for neck), so in the round, 2nd round will be from RS, back and forth, 2nd row will be from WS. Happy knitting!

Jytte Bach 05.11.2012 - 19:29:

Jeg kan simpelthen ikke finde en måltabel så jeg kan vælge hvilken størrelse jeg skal strikke ....Hvad gør jeg galt...Jytte

DROPS Design 15.11.2012 kl. 11:39:

Hej Jytte, Målene på blusen finder du nederst i opskriften. Du kan jo altid sammenligne målene med en bluse du synes om at have på og så vælge den størrelse med samme mål i opskriften. God fornøjelse"

KeaKlusi 11.08.2012 - 10:25:

Ich frage mich, welche Größeneinheit ich für die Größe 40/42 stricken sollte. Könnten Sie mir weiterhelfen bitte? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 11.08.2012 kl. 10:47:

Unten in der Skizze sehen Sie die genauen cm-Angaben. Damit können Sie am besten entscheiden, welche Grösse passend ist.
