Worked top down in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. First work back and forth until sts have been cast on for front piece, then work in the round. Pick up a neck edge at the end.

Cast on 48-50-52-52-52-58 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with Nepal.
ROW 1 (= WS): P all sts. Insert 1 marker 8-8-8-8-6-6 sts in from each side (= 8-8-8-8-6-6 sts on sleeve in each side, 32-34-36-36-40-46 sts on back piece between markers). Move the markers upwards when working.
ROW 2 (= RS): K 2, * inc 1 st - READ INCREASE TIP, K until 2 sts remain before next marker, inc 1 st, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these sts), inc 1 st, K until 2 sts remain before next marker, inc 1 st, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these sts), inc 1 st *, K until 2 sts remain on needle, inc 1 st, K 2 = 6 inc sts. Now cast on 4 sts on needle for front piece = 58-60-62-62-62-68 sts. (NOTE: Repeat *-* in 4th and 6th row as explained below).
ROW 3: P all sts, at the end of row cast on 4 sts = 62-64-66-66-66-72 sts. Insert 1 new marker 4 sts in from each side (= 4 sts on front piece in each side, 4 markers in total in piece).
ROW 4: K 6, (1st marker is after the first 4 sts), repeat from *-* from 2nd row, K until 2 sts remain before last marker, inc 1 st, K 6 (last marker is before the last 4 sts) = 6 inc sts. Cast on 4 sts = 72-74-76-76-76-82 sts.
ROW 5: P all sts, at the end of row cast on 4 sts = 76-78-80-80-80-86 sts (= 8 sts on front piece in each side).
ROW 6: K 10, (1st marker is after the first 8 sts), repeat from *-* from 2nd row, K until 2 sts remain before last marker, inc 1 st, K 10 = 6 inc sts (last marker is before the last 8 sts). Cast on 11-12-13-13-15-18 sts = 93-96-99-99-101-110 sts.

front piece in each side, 38-40-42-42-46-52 sts on back piece and 14-14-14-14-12-12 sts on each sleeve). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

Then work piece in the round as follows:
ROUND 1: * K until 2 sts remain before next marker, inc 1 st, K 4 (marker is between these sts), inc 1 st *, repeat from *-* 3 more times (= 4 times in total), K the remaining sts (= 8 inc sts) = 112-116-120-120-124-136 sts.
ROUND 2: K all sts.
Then inc 8 sts on round the same way - i.e. inc 1 st on each side of every marker - every other round 10-11-12-17-20-21 more times (11-12-13-18-21-22 inc in total on front piece), then every 4th round 3-3-3-1-0-0 time = 216-228-240-264-284-304 sts (= 66-70-74-80-88-96 sts on front piece and back piece, 42-44-46-52-54-56 sts on each sleeve). NOTE! Insert 1 marker in the middle on front piece (marks front piece which has shorter raglan).

Repeat inc when piece measures 20-22-24-26-28-30 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9½"-10 1/4"-11"-11 3/4" = 152-164-176-192-212-232 sts. When piece measures 55-57-59-61-63-65 cm / 21 5/8''-22½''-23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½'' in total vertically (measured at the back), inc 8 sts evenly on round = 160-172-184-200-220-240 sts. On next round switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Continue to work rib as follows: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round until rib has been worked for 3 cm / 1''.

Francesca Ronchi 06.02.2019 - 10:55:

Buongiorno, vorrei fare questo maglione, ma siccome non voglio ottenerlo troppo grande, ed essendo le mie misure 96 - 76 - 96, meglio una M o una L? grazie.

DROPS Design 06.02.2019 kl. 12:52:

Buongiorno Francesca. Le consigliamo di prendere come riferimento le misure di un maglione con vestibilità simile a quella del modello. Confrontando le misure con quelle del grafico, riuscirà ad individuare la taglia migliore da seguire. Buon lavoro!

MJ 15.01.2019 - 22:50:

I have just finished Row 7. To have the working yarn on the right needle in order to join in the round, I end up with the wrong side facing out. Am I doing something wrong?

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 08:30:

Dear Mj, last row (= row 7) has been worked from WS, turn piece to work next round from RS and work round 1 from RS as explained, at the end of round 1, join in the round, insert a marker to mark the beg of round and work round 2. Happy knitting!

Benedetta 15.01.2019 - 12:02:

Buongiorno e grazie per l'aiuto! Ho finito l'ultimo aumento degli 11 dello sprone. Adesso devo aumentare ogni 4 ferri x 3 volte, ma sempre prima e dopo ogni segnapunti, o solo le maniche o solo davanti/dietro? Grazie

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 12:17:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Sì, deve aumentare sia prima che dopo ogni segnapunti. Buon lavoro!

Benedetta 13.01.2019 - 20:44:

Buonasera, sono all'inizio del 4 ferro. 6 dir, (il primo segnapunti é dopo le prime 4 maglie) etc.... Non capisco il seguito se devo contare anche le 4 m avviate.Potete spiegarmi tutto il ferro? Grazie mille

DROPS Design 13.01.2019 kl. 21:58:

Buonasera Benedetta. Le prime 4 m sul ferro sono le 4 m avviate alla fine del terzo ferro. Al ferro 3 ha anche inserito altri 2 segnapunti: dopo le prime 4 m e prima delle ultime 4 m. Lavora 6 m (le 4 avviate al ferro precedente, segno, 2 m), segue le istruzioni tra gli * come indicato al ferro 2, lavora a dir finché non rimangono 2 m prima dell’ultimo segnapunti (in tutto rimangono 6 m sul ferro: 2 m, segnapunti, 4 m) aumenta 1 m, e poi lavora le ultime 6 m sul ferro. Su questo ferro aumenta 10 m. Buon lavoro!

Bärbel 23.08.2018 - 11:36:

Der Übergang von geraden Reihen stricken auf Stricken in Runden geht von links stricken auf rechts stricken (weilen Runden gestrickt werden muss) nicht. Wie gehe ich vor?

DROPS Design 26.08.2018 kl. 10:15:

Liebe Bärbel, die letzte Reihe, die Sie stricken, ist ja eine Rück-Reihe. Die nächste Reihe wäre also eine Hin-Reihe, wenn Sie dann die Arbeit zur Runde schließen, stricken Sie automatisch auf der Vorderseite der Arbeit, wie es für Runden ja normal ist. Gutes Gelingen!

Mathieu Anne-Marie 16.04.2018 - 18:07:

Bonjour, je suis arrivée à la fin des premières augmentations répétées tous les 2 rgs soit dans ma taille 10 (S). j\'ai été jusque 11 puisque il est indiqué 11 au total et c\'est là que j\'ai un doute car j\'ai 200m. Hors si je dois maintenant augmenter 3 fois 8 mailles tous les 4 rgs, je vais avoir plus de 216 m... Je ne comprends pas pourquoi on distingue devant et dos. Merci de votre réponse. Anne-Marie

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 09:52:

Bonjour Mme Mathieu, Après le 1er tour, vous augmentez 8 m et avez 112 m au total. Vous répétez ces augmentations encore 10 fois tous les 2 tours et 3 fois tous les 4 tours soit (10x8 + 3x4) = 104 augmentations au total + les 112 m = 216 m. On distingue le devant et le dos car on a commencé en rangs et on a augmenté davantage pour le dos que pour le devant. Bon tricot!

Rianne Wiesje Kompier Krijnen 08.02.2018 - 15:25:

In het patroon staat "Plaats 1 markeerder 8-8-8-8-6-6 st vanaf elke kant middenvoor om de zijkanten aan te geven (= 8-8-8-8-6-6 st op de mouw aan elke kant en 32-34-36-36-40-46 st op het achterpand tussen de markeerders. Wat bedoelt men met middenvoor in deze zin??? Middenvoor is toch het deel dat ontstaat door het opzetten van extra steken aan weerszijden van het werk?

DROPS Design 16.02.2018 kl. 12:05:

Hoi Rianne, Dat klopt inderdaad. Je voegt 8 st vanaf elke kant een markeerdraad in, maar die 8 steken zijn eigenlijk de mouwen en de steken van het voorpand moet je nog opzetten. Ik heb het woordje middenvoor verwijderd, want dat is alleen maar verwarrend. Bedankt voor het doorgeven.

Marie 17.09.2017 - 20:18:

Excusez moi, je n'avais pas bien lu les explications. Je retire ma question précédente.

Marie Laure KAMINSKI 17.09.2017 - 20:15:

Bonjour Je ne comrends pas le raglan: il ne peut pas se faire sur 7 rangs, mais sur beaucoup plus de rangs. Merci d'avance pour vos explications.

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 09:21:

Bonjour Mme Kaminski, les 7 premiers rangs décrivent comment tricoter les augmentations du raglan et comment augmenter en même temps pour l'encolure devant. Continuez ensuite en rond en augmentant tous les 2 tours, puis éventuellement tous les 4 tours comme indiqué pour votre taille. Bon tricot!
