GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.

See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Inc 8 sts on every round with inc. Inc on each side of the 3 sts in stockinette st which separate back piece, front piece and sleeves. Inc by making 1 YO, K YO twisted on next row to avoid holes. Work the inc sts in the pattern A.1:
Inc every 2nd and 3rd round 20-20-22-20-22-14 times in total.
Then work and inc differently on sleeves and front/back piece in the different sizes as follows:
SIZE S: Work 3 more rounds without inc = 232 sts on needle.
SIZE M: Inc every round on front/back piece 3 times and inc on 3rd round 1 time on sleeves. Work 2 rounds without inc = 248 sts on needle.
SIZE L: Inc every round 4 times on front/back piece, no inc on sleeves = 264 sts on needle.
SIZE XL: Inc every round 9 times on front/back piece and inc every 3rd round 3 times on sleeves = 288 sts on needle.
SIZE XXL: Inc every round 9 times on front/back piece and inc every 3rd round 2 times on sleeves = 304 sts on needle.
SIZE XXXL: Inc every round 23 times on front/back piece and inc every other round 11 times on sleeves = 332 sts on needle.

Dec on each side of 3 sts in stockinette st mid under sleeve.

Then work according to diagram A.1 over front piece, back piece and sleeves AT THE SAME TIME inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above on each side of the 3 sts in stockinette st that separate the sleeves, front and back piece.

After raglan inc there are 232-248-264-288-304-332 sts on needle. On next round work A.1 over the 58-64-70-76-82-94 sts on back piece, bind off 3 sts, work A.1 over the 52-54-56-62-64-66 sts on right sleeve, slip sts from sleeve on a stitch holder.

Work 2 ridges over 4 sts on each side of markers and A.1 over the other sts as before. (= 8 sts in each side in garter st). On next round divide the piece at the markers and work front and back piece separately until finished measurements with 4 sts in garter st in each side = 62-68-74-80-86-98 sts on needle.

Bluse 154-2. Diagram A.1 viser 4 omgange med 2 "blanke" - men diagram forklaringen ser anderledes ud - ret fra retsiden el vrang fra vrangen - slå om mellem 2 m - og så de samme 2 som i A.1. Det kan jeg ikke forstå.

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 14:48:

Hei Anita. Diagram A.1 strikkes slik: rad 1: 1 kast (symbol 2), ta 1 m løst av p som om den skulle strikkes rett, 1 m rett, løft den løse m over (symbol 3). Rad 2: begge makene strikkes rett (symbol 1). Rad 3: 2 masker rett sammen (symbol 4), 1 kast (symbol 2). Rad 4: begge maskene strikkes rett (symbol 1). God fornøyelse

Guten Tag, kann man diesen Pullover auch als Jacke stricken?

DROPS Design 27.08.2018 kl. 10:18:

Hallo Andrea, leider haben wir für dieses Modell keine entsprechende Jacke. Als Jacke müsste in Hin- und Rück-Reihen gestrickt werden sowie an den vorderen Rändern jeweils eine Blende gestrickt werden. Wie gesagt haben wir dafür aber keine Anleitung. Vielleicht stöbern Sie einmal bei unseren Jacken und finden dort ein Modell, das Ihnen auch gefällt.

How do i get After raglan inc 232 sts for size S started with only 72 sts, I finished 20 rounds and I have only 152 (8 sts inc in each 2nd and 3rd rnd)

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 16:23:

Dear Anna, in size S you need to increase 8 sts a total of 20 times , there were 72 sts + 8 stsx20 = 72 + 160 = 232 sts. Happy knitting!

Marianna 30.06.2018 - 15:58:

Buon giorno, non riesco a capire la parte del RAGLAN nella quale si dice di aumentare ogni 2 e 3 giri. Significa che si aumenta ai ferri 2°,3°,5°,6°,8°,9°,ecc oppure che si aumenta una volta ogni 2 giri e una volta ogni 3? Grazie

DROPS Design 06.07.2018 kl. 15:00:

Buongiorno Marianna. Deve aumentare una volta dopo 2 giri e una volta dopo 3, in modo alternato. Buon lavoro!

Herma 14.04.2018 - 14:21:

Ik heb wat meer duidelijkheid nodig over het meerderen van de raglan. Ik begrijp nog wel dat ik voor en na de 3 steken die de overgang tussen voor-achterland en mouwen elke 2e naald 1 steek moet meerderen. Dit is 8 steken per naald. Maar ik moet ook nog eens elke 2e en 3e naald 22 steken, (per naald?( meerderen in totaal 14 keer. Geen idee hoe ik dit moet aanpakken. Help!😅. Jammer dat er geen voorbeeld video is van deze trui.

Gunn 27.01.2018 - 15:05:

Siden første øking er på omg 2 å den starter med et kast , skal jeg ta 2 kast da ? får ikke antall masker til å stemme.

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 10:15:

Hei Gun. Du gjør et kast i begynnelsen av diagram A.1 på 1. omgang, første økning til raglan gjøres på 2. omgang. Når det skal gjøres et kast og en økning til raglan på samme omgang, blir det 2 kast, bare husk at kastet til diagrammet skal strikkes «ta 1 m løst av p som om den skulle strikkes rett, 1 m rett, løft den løse m over», mens økningen til raglan skal «kastet strikkes vridd rett på neste p for å unngå hull». Usikker på hvorfor du ikke får maskeantallet til å stemme, husk å oppgi hvilken størrelse du strikker. Mvh Drops design

Gunn 24.01.2018 - 22:45:

Hvorfor står det : det økes 8 m på hver omg med øking, uansett hva jeg gjør så får jeg bare 4 masker øking i omg 2. eller menes 8 m øking med at det er både i omg 2 og omg 3, får heller ikke maske tall til å stemme ,,, diagram a-1 er 2 masker i 4 omganger ,, forstår jeg rett at det skal økes kun i omg 2 og omg 3 og at omg 1 og 4 er uten øking ?

DROPS Design 26.01.2018 kl. 08:45:

Hei Gunn. Du har 3 glattstrikkede masker 4 steder på genseren (2 foran og 2 bak). Når du skal øke skal det økes 1 maske FØR de 3 glattstrikkede maskene og 1 masker ETTER de 3 glattstrikkede masker = 2 økte masker. 2 økte masker x 4 steder = 8 økte masker per omgang. Det skal økes på hver 2.(andre) og 3. (tredje) omg (1. omg = ingen økninger. 2. omg = økninger. 3. og 4. omgang = ingen økninger. 5.omg (som er 3. omg etter siste økning, skal det økes). 6. omg = ingen økning. 7. omg (som er 2. omg etter siste økning, skal det økes). 8.-9. omg = ingen økninger. 10. omg (som er 3. omg etter siste økning, skal det økes) osv. God Fornøyelse!

Annie 04.07.2017 - 03:40:

Do I make all increases at the beginning of each sleeve or body section e.g. For Row 2 a yo before I knit all stitches? Then for Row 3 do I start with a yo, knit the yo through the back (from Row2) and then start pattern? Row 4 knit yo over through the back then knit all stitches. Then second time I do pattern sequence start the A1 pattern incorporating thr two new stitches? Thanks

DROPS Design 04.07.2017 kl. 07:23:

Hi Annie, You increase for Raglan at each transition from body to sleeve so on each side of markers 3 and 4; and 5 and 6 sts in stocking stitch. These increased stitches are then worked into pattern A1. I hope this helps, Kind regards, Deirdre

Margaret 15.01.2017 - 20:12:

Hello, I am having trouble understanding the A.1 diagram for Pattern no w-529 or 154-2. It seems to have two numbers. I believe it's called Long Beach. Is there a video? Thanks so much, Margaret

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 10:32:

Dear Margaret, work A.1 as follows in the round: round 1: (YO,slip1 ask if to K, K1, psso), repeat from (to) - round 2 (and all even numbered rounds: K) - round 3: (K2 tog, YO), repeat from (to). When working back and forth P all sts in row 2 and 4 from WS. Happy knitting!
