AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st towards cable in every section with P sts with marker in (= 8-8-12-12-12 markers). Repeat dec every 3-2½-5-4-4 cm / 1 1/8"-7/8"-2"-1½"-1½" 2-3-1-2-2 more times.

When all dec and inc are done, 188-204-228-248-276 sts remain. When piece measures 11-12-12-13-14 cm / 4½"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5"-5½", work pattern as follows:

NOTE: Adjust the first cable in A.4 and A.5 to get a nice transition between diagrams. Continue with pattern and inc according to diagram.
When A.4 and A.5 have been worked vertically and piece measures approx. 33-34-34-35-35 cm / 13"-13½"-13½"-13 3/4"-13 3/4", there are 308-324-364-384-412 sts on round. Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE.

Now work rib as follows:
S/M: * Work K over K and P over P until 7-11 sts remain before the blue marker in the side, P 2, K 2, P 3-4 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time and continue with K over K and P over P the rest of round.

When rib has been worked for 2 cm / 3/4'' from marker, inc by making 1 YO before first P st in every P section - remember INCREASE TIP. When rib has been worked for 5-5-6-6-6 cm / 2"-2"-2½"-2½"-2½", bind off with K over K and P over P.

SLEEVES:
Slip the 80-90-102-114-116 sts from stitch holder back on circular needle. K 1 row over all sts and cast on 12 new sts at the end of row = 92-102-114-126-128 sts. Insert a marker in the middle of the new sts (i.e. 6 sts on each side of marker). NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Then work sleeve in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. Continue the middle cable on sleeve as before but work P over cables in raglan. On 2nd round beg dec on each side of marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec in every other round 6 more times = 78-88-100-112-114 sts. Then dec 1 st on each side of marker every 2-1½-1-1-1 cm / 3/4"-½"-3/8"-3/8"-3/8" 13-17-22-27-27 times = 52-54-56-58-60 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 15 cm / 6'', work A.5 over cable in the middle of sleeve - adjust the first cable in A.5 to get a nice transition between diagrams. NOTE: Do not inc in A.5 on sleeve, i.e. do not work YOs in diagram. When A.5 is finished and sleeve measures 37 cm / 14½'', work rib as follows from marker at beg of round: P 0-0-1-2-3, K 1-2-2-2-2, P 3, K 2, P 3, K 2, P 2, continue rib as on last row in A.5 (= 26 sts), P 2, K 2, P 3, K 2, P 3, K 1-2-2-2-2, P 0-0-1-2-3.

Hello, Thank you to drops for this pattern, I enjoyed the challenge and found the instructions to be excellent. A suggestion for others is to draw a diagram as it's easier to follow while knitting. Just one thing though, the sleeves are excessively large at the top!

Carmen-Gabriela 13.09.2018 - 18:01:

Hallo:) Zu "S" bzgl. Passenende: Nach den Zun. 29x8M=232M+116M=348M hat man die Ges.M.Zahl bereits erreicht (Ärm.2x80M+VT/RT 2x94=348M noch ohne die 2+12M Steg). WO soll ich "dann" am VT/RT 1x"S"(4x"M") zun.? Direkt i.d.Mitte v. A1/A2, zwischen den 2 li. M? so dass die Mittellinie vom Raglan aufspringt? Und in welchem Abstand diese Zun.? Wieder in 3."S"(2."M")Rd.? Werden pro Rd 4 M VT/RT zugenommen? - Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe!

DROPS Design 14.09.2018 kl. 08:10:

Liebe Carmen-Gabriela, wenn alle Raglanzunahmen gestrickt sind, haben Sie 348 M; die nächsten Absätze (RAGLANZUNAHMEN und MUSTER) beschrieben wie man diese Zunahmen stricken soll. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Carmen-Gabriela 08.09.2018 - 17:57:

Nun, möchte gerne mit "offenem" Halsrand - Anschlag m. Hilfsfaden - beginnen (ohne Rippen, sogleich M.Zahl der Passe), um später einen etwas höheren Stehbund im Musterverlauf anzustricken, entsprechend M wieder abnehmen natürlich. Nur weiß ich nicht wie ich es mit den verkürzten Reihen dann von unten nach oben beim RT handhabe. Daher meine Frage, ob Sie ein Modell hierzu haben. - Vielen lieben Dank jetzt schon:)

Carmen-Gabriela 08.09.2018 - 17:43:

Hallo:) haben Sie meine Frage - Anschlag mit Hilfsfaden dann von unten nach oben verkürzte Reihen - erhalten? Evtl. gibt es diesbzgl. ein anderes Modell zur Orientierung^? (6 Stellen waren noch offen, jedoch Hinweis erhalten, dass "zu viel")

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 08:13:

Liebe Carmen-Gabriela, leider können wir nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder individuellen Anfrage anpassen, gerne können Sie sich von anderen Modellen (von unten nach oben) inspirieren. Nehmen Sie auch Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden auf - auch telefonisch oder per E-mail, um weitere Hilfe zu bekommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Aya 28.08.2018 - 14:21:

Or does "cable" mean the one big A3 cable on front or back? If so, which cable should I dec toward in underarm sections (I mean like, dec toward front cable in left underarm section and dec toward back cable in right underarm section)? Also what does "with marker in" ?

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 13:40:

Hi again. No, cable is not the big A.3 cable on front abd back. It's in each side and underarm sections that you decrease. With marker in, means that you decrease in the purl sections where you inserted a marker. It's in these sections that have a marker that you decrease. Happy Knitting!

Aya 28.08.2018 - 14:16:

I'm knitting size L body part now. AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st towards cable in every section with P sts with marker in (= 8-8-12-12-12 markers). in some sections, there are more than 1 cable( I understand here "1 cable" as "A1" or "A2") , for example, underarm section (=P7,A1,P4,A2,P4,A2,P7); that i understand 3 cables in the section and I don't know, toward which cable I should dec. Is that misinterpreting?

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 13:38:

Dear Aya, Maybe the word towards is misleading you. Do decrease 1 st in every P sections with the marker in, Decrease in the purl sections but next to the simple cables. Focus on the purl sections with the markers. What is asked is to make 1 decrease next to a cable (either drecrease the first 2 stitches or the last 2 stitches). Hope this will help you out. Happy Knitting!

Elvina 30.05.2018 - 06:55:

Do you think that this pattern would work if I were to use 8 ply hand spun alpaca?

Ho inviato già questa domanda ma forse l'ho inserita nei commenti.... sto lavorando il corpo e sono arrivata alle coste. Dopo aver lavorato due cm devo fare gli aumenti prima della 1° maglia rov nella sez rovescio. Così mi vengono tantissimi aumenti, è possibile? Addirittura 50..Forse ho capito male..? Bellissimo modello!!

Carissimi, sto lavorando il corpo e sono arrivata alle coste. Dopo aver lavorato due cm devo fare gli aumenti prima della 1° maglia rov nella sez rovescio. Così mi vengono tantissimi aumenti, è possibile? Addirittura 50..Forse ho capito male..? Bellissimo modello!!

Bliblimama 06.04.2018 - 11:48:

I have finished the yoke increases of the S sweater, 23+6 times and reached the 348 stitches, but then it is written to increase one more time, these new 8 stitches will be more than what will be required when dividing for the sleeves. please help, and tgank you for all your beautiful patterns.

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 13:06:

Dear Bliblimama, in size S you inc a total of 23 times on every 2nd round and 6 times every 3rd round (= 29 times in total). The part under 'PATTERN' gives more details about how to work the inc sts for raglan (= A.2, P8, A.2, P8 = 28 sts and P next inc st = 29 sts inc on each side of each raglan line), there are now 348 sts and piece measures 27 cm from shoulder, divide now work and continue body and sleeves separately. Happy knitting!
