SIZE S-M:
Inc 1 sts on each side of each marker (= 8 sts inc in total) as follows: I1 YO, K 1 twisted, K 1 (= st with marker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO. Do not work YOs twisted on next round, they should make holes, repeat inc every other round 17-19 more times.
SIZE L-XL-XXL-XXXL:

Repeat inc on every other round 1-1-1-3 more times.
Then inc like as follows:
Inc 1 sts at each side of each marker (= 8 sts inc in total) as follows: 1 YO, K 1 twisted, K 1(= st with marker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO. Do not K YOs twisted on next round, they should make holes. Repeat inc every other round 19-20-22-21 more times in total.

----------------------------------------------------------

YOKE:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Cast on 134-134-140-144-144-148 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat or "Belle". Work A.1 (= 2 sts) over all sts. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. On next round K all sts and inc 16-20-14-22-42-46 sts evenly = 150-154-154-166-186-194 sts. On next round insert 4 markers in the midle st of each raglan as follows: Insert 1st in last st on round, K 45-47-49-55-65-71 sts (= front piece), K 1 sts and insert 2nd marker in this st, K 28-28-26-26-26-24 sts (= sleeve), K 1 sts and insert 3rd marker in this st, K 45-47-49-55-65-71 sts (= back piece), K 1 st and insert 4th marker in this st, K 28-28-26-26-26-24 sts (= sleeve). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE

Then work as follows - AT THE SAME TIME inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above. K 14-15-16-19-24-27 sts, A.2 (= 17 sts), K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 st remains before 2nd marker, work RAGLAN - see explanation above, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 sts remain before 3rd marker, work raglan, K 1-2-3-6-11-14 sts, A.3 (= 43 sts), K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 st remains before 4th marker, work raglan, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 sts remain before 1st marker, work raglan. Work the inc sts in stockinette st until they can be worked in pattern as shown in A.3.

When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work in stockinette st over all these sts. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.4 (= 57 sts) over A.3. After all inc are done there are 294-314-338-358-394-426 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 14-15-16-17-18-19 cm / 5½''-6''-6¼''-6¾''-7''-7½''. Continue with pattern and stockinette st as before AT THE SAME TIME work as follows: Work the first 81-87-95-103-117-129 sts (= front piece), slip the next 66-70-74-76-80-84 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of the new sts), work the next 81-87-95-103-117-129 sts (= back piece), slip the next 66-70-74-76-80-84 sts on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of the new sts) = 174-186-202-222-250-274 sts remain on needle. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue to work A.4 and stockinette st over the remaining sts. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', dec 1 st on each side of each markers in the sides (= 4 sts dec) - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every 2½-4-4-4-4-4 cm / 7/8"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1½"-1½" 5-3-3-3-3-3 more times = 150-170-186-206-234-258 sts. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, work in stockinette st over all sts. When piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm / 7''-7½''-8''-8¼''-8 ¾''-9'' insert 4 markers as follows: Work 15-17-19-21-25-27 sts, insert 1st marker, work 45-51-55-61-67-75 sts, insert 2nd marker, work 30-34-38-42-50-54 sts, insert 3rd marker, work 45-51-55-61-67-75 sts, insert 4th marker, work the remaining 15-17-19-21-25-27 sts. 1st and 2nd marker are on front piece, and 3rd and 4th marker are on back piece. Move the markers upwards when working. On next round inc 1 st before 1st and 3rd marker and 1 st after 2nd and 4th marker (= 4 sts inc) - READ INCREASE TIP. NOTE: No of sts mid front and mid back is the same, inc in side sts.

Repeat inc every 6th round 1 more time, then every 4th round 6-5-6-5-6-10 times, then every other round 22-18-22-18-18-8 times = 270-270-306-306-338-338 sts. On next round, inc 2-2-0-0-2-2 sts evenly = 272-272-306-306-340-340 sts. Work in stockinette st until piece measures 45-46-47-48-49-50 cm / 17¾''-18''-18½''-19''-19¼''-19¾'' (or desired length, approx. 25 cm / 9 3/4'' remain). Then work A.6 (= 34 sts) 8-8-9-9-10-10 times in total in width. When A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work A.5 over all sts. Bind off.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 sts under sleeve = 72-76-80-84-88-92 sts.

Hey, the lace patterns are really cute! A question, though. Do they show both right and wrong side, or just right? (Ie. Should even rows be on the wrong side?) Thank you!

DROPS Design 27.08.2018 kl. 18:42:

Hello Amanda. Diagrams show both right and wrong side. So even rows are to be worked on wrong side. Happy knitting!

Mari Jose 29.07.2018 - 17:30:

Hola! Creo que no hice bien mi pregunta.mi talla es la xl y ya he tejido 17 cm del canesu e hice todos los aumentos del ranglan pero no he tejido el A3 del todo, aun me quedan 16 vueltas. No entiendo bien si es en este momento cuando tengo que separar para las mangas o tengo que tejer hasta completar A3 y entonces separar para tejer mangas y cuerpo. Un saludo y gracias

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 12:46:

Hola Mari Jose. Los aumentos para el raglán y los calados en la espalda/delantero son independientes. Para el tamaño del canesú (antes de separar las mangas) tienes que ver la referencia para la talla que estas trabajando, es decir 17 cm. Y si la tensión es correcta vas a tener 358 puntos. Las calados los sigues trabajando hasta completar los diagramas.

Mari Jose 19.07.2018 - 17:08:

Hola, no entiendo bien el momento en que tengo que deslizar los puntos para hacer las mangas. Gracias!

DROPS Design 21.07.2018 kl. 20:32:

Hola Mari Jose. Cuando llegues a los puntos de las mangas primero pasa los puntos de la manga sin trabajar a una aguja auxiliar (esta parte queda en espera hasta que haya que trabajar las mangas), ahora vuelve al cuerpo del vestido y monta los puntos nuevos según tu talla para la parte de la sisa bajo la manga, continuar con los puntos del cuerpo hasta la siguiente manga y trabajamos la otra manga de la misma manera.

Meghan 19.07.2018 - 05:05:

I love this pattern, its absolutely stunning. I did have two questions though. Once the I have finished the increases (I'm knitting the large size) should I put the sleeve stitches on the holders on row 42 or 43? Secondly, when counting the stitches to separate the sleeves and the front and back pieces, which stitch is the first stitch of the row? The first stitch that isn't part of the raglan, the stitch with the marker, or the stitch after the final raglan? Many thanks.

DROPS Design 19.07.2018 kl. 09:37:

Dear Meghan, you have to divide piece after the last increase, ie on the row with all sts worked K and with no YO's. When dividing piece, count first st on front piece as first st on round as before. Happy knitting!

Thank you for getting back to me. That explanation helps tremendously:)

Nella realizzazione del capo ho riscontrato un errore nella taglia XL . Nella spiegazione dello sprone quando si indicano le maglie da lavorare dopo il terzo raglan per inizia re il diagramma A3 , viene indicato di lavorare 6 maglie e poi il diagramma . In effetti , così facendo il diagramma non è centrato. Lo è invece se si lavorarono 4 maglie . Questo per la taglia XL . Verificare le altre . Grazie . Fatemi sapere .

Barbara Drenth 17.07.2018 - 18:51:

Desperately wanting to get going on this pattern. I am new to knitting with charts understanding they read r to left in the round. For A1=2 sts over all sts I'm understanding this as do this across all sts in the round. So first one is purl this next round knit , 3rd purl, 4rth knit then k2tog across whole round? I must be reading this wrong. Please assist a newbie. Anxiously awaiting your reply. Love knitting it helps my Rheumatoid Arthritis:)

DROPS Design 18.07.2018 kl. 07:54:

Hi Barbara, You read the pattern in the diagram from left to right and bottom up. So with A.1 as you say, you work a round of pearl first, then a round of knit, then purl and knit followed by the 5th round where you knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over etc. to end of round. Then work the final 2 rounds. Hope this helps and happy knitting!

Hva er brystvidden på M og L? Jeg finner ikke mål på de ulike størrelsene. Mvh Torill

DROPS Design 03.07.2018 kl. 10:47:

Hej Torill, du tager brystmålet i måleskitsen (nederst i opskriften) og ganger med 2 så får du 82-88-96-106-120-130 cm. God fornøjelse!

Fabienne Borel 02.07.2018 - 09:19:

Bonjour, ma question est simple et générale, lorsque l'on doit faire une augmentation/diminution tous les 4 rgs, doit-on laisser 3 ou 4 rgs entre celles-ci ? Les personnes que j'ai interrogées se contredisent ;-)

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 10:07:

Bonjour Mme Borel, on fait d'abord l'augmentation/la diminution quand elle est indiquée, puis on tricote 3 rangs/tours et on augmente/diminue au rang suivant, on a ainsi 1 augm/dim tous les 4 rangs. Bon tricot!
