There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Knitting tension: 20 sts x 26 rows on needle size 4 in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm. Remember the needle sizes are guidelines only!
Rib edge: * K2, P2 *, repeat from *-*.
Garter st (on circular needle): 1st round: P. 2nd round: K.

Back and front pieces: Cast on 112-124-136-144 (152-164-172-184) sts on circular needle size 3 mm with deep red and knit 8 rows garter st. Insert a marking thread each side. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and continue in stocking sts – remember the knitting tension! At the same time inc each side as follows:
Sizes 6/9 - 12/18 months: No inc for these two sizes.
Size 2 years: When piece measures 15 cm inc1 st on each side of both marking threads (= 4 new sts).
Size 3/4 years: When piece measures 8 and 18 cm inc1 st on each side of both marking threads (= 8 new sts).
Sizes 5/6- 7/8- 9/10- 11/12 years: When the piece measures 4 cm inc1 st on each side of both marking threads. Repeat the inc 5-5-6-6 times on every 5-6-5-5 cm (= 4 new sts per increase).
Now there are 112-124-140-152 (172-184-196-208) sts on needle. When piece measures 19-22-26-28 (30-34-35-35) cm slip 8 sts each side on a thread for armhole (= 4 sts on each side of the marking thread) = 96-108-124-136 (156-168-180-192) sts on the needle. Put the piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 40-40-44-44 (48-48-52-52) sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm in deep red. Knit Rib - see explanation above - for 4-4-4-4 (5-5-5-5) cm. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and continue in stocking st. At the same time, inc 2 sts mid under arm: 4-6-4-8 (8-10-10-14) times on every 11-8-15-8 (9-8-9-6) rounds = 48-52-52-60 (64-68-72-80) sts. When piece measures 21-23-27-30 (33-37-40-42) cm slip 8 sts mid under arm on a thread = 40-44-44-52 (56-60-64-72) sts on needle.

Yoke: Slip the sleeves onto the same circular needle as the jersey where 8 sts has been put on the thread for armhole = 176-196-212-240 (268-288-308-336) sts on needle.
Insert a marking thread in all transitions between sleeves and jersey = 4 marking threads.

Read all of the next section before knitting !
Continue in stocking sts, at the same time after 2-1-4-3 (3-3-3-3) rounds dec for raglan as follows:

Dec for raglan on both sides of all 4 marking threads = 8 decreases of 2 sts per round (= 16 sts dec per round).
There are 4 stocking sts between each dec (i.e. 2 sts on each side of MT).
Dec 2 sts as follows from the RS:
start 5 sts before the marking threads: Slip 1 st as if to knit, K2 tog, psso, K2.
After the marking threads: K2, K3 tog.

Note! After dec for neck the piece is finished back and forth on needle and dec are also made from thw WS.
Dec 2 sts as follows from the WS:
start 5 sts before the marking threads: P3 tog into back of sts, P2.
After the marking threads: P2, P3 tog into back of st.

Dec as follows:
Size 6/9 - 12/18 months:
Dec 2 sts each side of MT on every 4th round: 6-7 times.

Size 2 - 3/4 (5/6- 7/8- 9/10- 11/12) years:
Dec 2 sts each side of MT on every 4th round: 3-3 (3-3-2-1) times and then on every 3rd round 2 sts 5-7 (8-9-11-14) times.

At the same time when there are 6 rounds left of raglan dec, cast off for neck on front piece and for slit on back piece (for the 2 smallest sizes) as follows: Slip the middle 8-10-12-12 (14-16-18-18) sts on front on a thread for neck and finish the piece back and forth on needle. At the same time (for the 2 smallest sizes) cast of the 2 middle sts on back piece for slit, cast on 3 new sts each side of the slit and knit these in garter sts until finished measurements. Continue slipping 2 sts on the thread at front to shape the neckline on every other row a total of 2 times. Now put all sts back on needle = 84-88-84-80 (92-96-100-96) sts.
Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit stocking sts – however, on the 2 smallest sizes knit back and forth from the slit mid back – at the same time dec 20-14-8-0 (10-8-8-0) sts evenly over the 1st round/row = 64-74-76-80 (82-88-92-96) sts. For the 2 smallest sizes: continue with 3 garter sts towards the slit mid back and cast off for 1 buttonhole after 0.5 cm and again after 2.5 cm - 1 button hole = cast off the middle of the 3 garter sts from RS and make a yo over the cast of st on the return row. When neck edge measures 3-3-3-3 (4-4-4-4) cm cast off – the neck will now roll.

Assembly: Sew the openings under the arms with mattress sts to ensure the seam becomes elastic. On the 2 smallest sizes sew the bottom of the slit and sew on the buttons.

Hi, Basically I'm having the same problems with this pattern as Marcia so your answer to her first question also helped me. The question of slipping two stitches each side of neck for shaping is still puzzling me though. If I knit them and slip them onto the thread then do I knit and slip, knit and slip then carry on knitting row with yarn from last slipped stitch on the thread? and won't there be a hole between the slipped on stitches and the ones already on the thread when joined?

DROPS Design 25.02.2019 kl. 12:51:

Dear Sue, there might be some small holes at the transitions, but when you will then work all sts, you can pick up the thread between 2 sts and knit it with the next st twisted together, so that there won't be holes anymore. Happy knitting!

Marcia 02.07.2018 - 01:40:

Thank you for answering my previous question regarding the Drops Children 9-9 sweater. It makes more sense to me now. However, I am having a hard time figuring how to slip the stitches onto a stitch holder without joining my yarn from my right needle to my left needle like I did on the sleeves.

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 10:12:

Dear Marcia, work first the 2 sts at the beg of row and slip them to the st holder, work to the end of row as before, turn and slip the first 2 sts at the beg of row onto the st holder, and work row to the end as before. Happy knitting!

Marcia Keys 25.06.2018 - 20:44:

I am knitting the Drops Children 9-9 in size 11/12, and am at a point where the instructions say "at the same time when there are 6 rounds left of raglan decrease..." I don't understand ANYTHING from this point forward. Please help!!

DROPS Design 26.06.2018 kl. 08:29:

Dear Mrs Marcia Keys, in the largest size you dec a total of 1 time every 4th row and 14 times every 3rd row (= 15 times in total). When 6 dec remain = after you have dec a total of 9 times (15 - 6), continue decrease for raglan as before but at the same time slip the mid 18 sts on mid front on a thread and continue back and forth slipping on each side for neck: slip the first 2 sts at the beg of row on each side (= work them first to avoid cutting yarn) a total of 2 times (= 26 sts for neck). When all decrease for raglan are done = 96 sts remain (incl sts on a thread). Work now in stocking st for 4 cm and bind off. Happy knitting!

Bonnie 04.06.2018 - 00:46:

I have 400 grams of worsted weight wool (800yds) to make this pattern for a very slim 11yr old who wears 8-10 size shirts still. Do I have enough to make this sweater in an 8 or 10?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:42:

Dear Bonnie, We are able to provide free patterns thanks to our yarns sold throughout the world. You will therefore understand that we can only recomand you to contact your DROPS Store for any further help & assistance. Thank you for your comprehension.

Do you have a children's (age 5-6) neck-down raglan sleeve pattern? I keep seeing your button-up patterns. Thank you for this wonderful international fibre community!

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 09:45:

Dear Mrs Greer, please find here our top-down sweaters for children. Happy knitting!

Ermene strikkes best på to pinner frem og tilbake. Enklere å få dem inn på rundpinnen med bolen da.

JANICKI 04.09.2017 - 00:07:

Bonjour, pouvez-vous m'aider pour le raglan? je ne comprends pas les diminutions : 8 diminutions par tour (2 devant, 2 manche, 2 dos et 2 manche) or vous indiquez 3m ensemble et 1 m glissée 2 m ensemble et la m glissée passé au-dessus des 2m ensemble soit 16 diminutions par tour; Je suis perdue et compte sur vous Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 11:05:

Bonjour Mme Janicki, une erreur s'était glissée dans le modèle français, on diminue 8 fois 2 mailles par tour, soit 16 diminutions au total, on va diminuer 2 m avant et 2 m après chaque marqueur. Bon tricot!

Christina De Poorter 09.02.2016 - 15:56:

Ik probeer dit model om te zetten naar een patroon met rechte naalden, maar vanaf de minderingen voor de raglan kan ik er niet meer aan uit. Kan u mij helpen? Christina

DROPS Design 09.02.2016 kl. 16:28:

Beste Christina. Ik kan helaas niet helpen met individuele aanpassingen op de gratis patronen. Vraag eventueel bij je DROPS winkel of een handwerkforum.

Judy 12.05.2015 - 08:40:

Could you please explain what I do with the 8 stitches left on threads on the sleeves and both underarms on body piece. Do I cast them off or is there a way to sew them together.

DROPS Design 12.05.2015 kl. 10:18:

Dear Judy, you can cast off them and sew them to the 8 new sts cast on on sleeve - see eg video below. Happy knitting!

Ingrid Lönn 22.04.2015 - 22:02:

Förstår inte hur man ska få in ärmen i bålen och ska ärmen verkligen stickas färdig på rundstickan? Skulle behöva en tydligare beskrivning eller fattas en del av mönstret. Har en stickjunta ihop med väninnor varav en är textillärare och hon förstod inte heller hur det skulle vara. Tacksam för råd! Hälsningar Ingrid Lönn

DROPS Design 13.05.2015 kl. 14:26:

Hej Ingrid, Jo men du stickar raglanärmarna samtidigt som du stickar hela oket runt enligt beskrivningen. Lycka till!
