Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

For that purpose, each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you, which you will find at the bottom of the page.

We have also step-by-step lessons to help you understand some of the techniques we use in our patterns. You'll find them here!

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st before marker as follows: Work until 2 sts remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec 1 st after marker as follows: K 2 tog.

BAND STS:
Work band (= 6 sts) as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K 6.
ROW 2: K 6.
Repeat 1st-2nd row 5 times in total (= 5 ridges).
ROW 11 (= RS): * K 2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, work reversed in the other side of piece, i.e.: 1 YO, K 2 twisted tog (= eyelet row).
ROW 12: K all sts, do not work YOs twisted; they should make holes.

RAGLAN:
Inc differently for raglan in the different sizes:
SIZE S-M:
Inc on every row from RS (= every other row) as follows:
Inc 1 sts each side of each marker (= 8 sts inc) as follows: 1 YO, K1 twisted, K 1( = st with marker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO. Do not work YOs twisted on next row, they should make holes, repeat inc every other row 17-19 more times.
SIZE L-XL-XXL-XXXL:
Inc on every row from RS (= every other row) as follows:
Inc 2 sts each side of each marker (= 16 sts inc in total) as follows: 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1 twisted, K 1(= st with maker), K 1 twisted, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO (the first and last YO work P twisted on next row, it
should not make a hole, P the 2 middle YO, they should make holes). Repeat inc on every row from RS 1-1-1-3 more times.
Then inc on every row from RS (= every other row) as follows:
Inc 1 st on each side of each marker (= 8 sts inc in total) as follows: YO, K 1 twisted, K 1 (= st with maker), K 1 twisted, YO.
Do not P YOs twisted on next row, they should make holes, repeat inc every other row 19-20-22-21 times in total.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next row P YO twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
Picture deviate from pattern, there is no seam on sleeve in pattern.

YOKE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle, top down. Cast on 147-147-153-157-157-161 sts (includes 6 band sts in each side of piece) on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Muskat. Work 6 BAND STS - see explanation above, A.1 (= 2 sts) until 7 sts remain, K 1, finish with 6 band sts. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work the 6 band sts like this until finished measurements. On next row from RS, 6 band sts, A.2 (= 7 sts), K until 13 sts remain - AT THE SAME TIME inc 14-18-12-20-40-44 sts evenly, A.3 (= 7 sts), ending with 6 band sts = 161-165-165-177-197-205 sts. On next row (= from WS) insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: 6 band sts, A.3, P 15-16-17-20-25-28 sts (= front piece), P 1 and insert 1st marker in this st, P 28-28-26-26-26-24 (= sleeve), P 1 st and insert 2nd marker in this st,
P 45-47-49-55-65-71 sts (= back piece), P 1 st and insert 3rd marker in this st, P 28-28-26-26-26-24 sts(= sleeve), P 1 and insert 4th marker in this st, P 15-16-17-20-25-28 sts (= front piece), A.2 and finish with 6 band sts. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! A.2-A.3 is worked like this until finished measurements.

Then work as follows (from RS) - AT THE SAME TIME inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above. Work 6 band sts, A.2, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 st remains before 1st marker, work RAGLAN - see explanation above, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 sts remain before 2nd marker, work raglan, K 1-2-3-6-11-14, A.4 (= 43 sts), K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 st remains before 3rd marker, work raglan, K until 1-1-2-2-2-2 sts remain before 4th marker, work raglan,in stockinette st until 13 sts remain, A.3 (= 7 sts), finish with 6 band sts. Work the inc sts in stockinette st until they can be worked in pattern as shown in A.4.

When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.5 (= 57 sts) over A.4.
After all inc are done there are 305-325-349-369-405-437 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 on next row from RS: Work 6 band sts, A.2 as before, 33-36-40-44-51-57 sts in stockinette st (= front piece), insert 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 marker in the middle of the new sts), work the next 81-87-95-103-117-129 sts (= back piece) as before, 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), 33-36-40-44-51-57 sts in stockinette st (= front piece), A.3 as before, finish with 6 band sts = 185-197-213-233-261-285 sts remain on needle.

Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue with pattern and stockinette st over the remaining sts. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', dec 1 st on each side of each markers in the side (= 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 = 161-181-197-217-245-269 sts. Work as before until piece measures 18-19-20-21-22-23 cm / 7''-7½''-8''-8¼''-8 ¾''-9''. When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, work in stockinette st over all sts. Then inc 1 st on each side of each markers in the sides (= 4 sts inc) - READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every 2 cm / 3/4'' 8-7-7-7-7-7 more times = 197-213-229-249-277-301 sts. When piece measures 40-41-42-43-44-45 cm / 15¾''-16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾'' (adjust so that next row is from RS), switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Then work as follows: 6 band sts, work A.6 (= 2 sts) until 7 sts remain, 1 st in stockinette st and 6 band sts. When A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, bind off.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and cast on 6-6-6-8-8-8 new sts under sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of the new sts) = 72-76-80-84-88-92 sts - see KNITTING TIP.
Work in stockinette st. When piece measures 3 cm / 1'', dec 1 st on each side of marker mid under sleeve (= 2 sts dec), repeat dec every 2-1½-1½-1½-1-1 cm / 3/4"-½"-½"-½"-3/8"-3/8" 12-13-14-15-17-18 more times = 46-48-50-52-52-54 sts. When piece measures 32-32-32-31-31-31 cm / 12½"-12½"-12½"-12 1/4"-12 1/4"-12 1/4" (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), switch to double pointed needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work A.6. Bind off when A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically. Work the other sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the opening under the sleeves. Sew on buttons, button in eyelet row for band sts. Fasten the top button in neck on left band in first eyelet row, skip 2 eyelet rows, fasten the next button, then fasten the other button in every other eyelet row.
