Inc 1 sts on each side of every marker (= 8 sts inc):
Beg 2 st before marker: 1 YO, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), 1 YO. On next round K the YO to make a hole.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Work jumper top down on circular needle. Work sleeve in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 114-120-123-129-132-135 sts on a short circular needle size 3.5 mm with Cotton Light or Belle. Work rib = K 1/P 2 for 3 cm. On next round switch to circular needle size 4 mm knit stocking st and inc 10-16-29-39-52-73 sts evenly = 124-136-152-168-184-208 sts. Now work as follows from mid back (beg of round): 18-21-25-29-33-39 sts in stocking st (= back piece), insert a marker, 26 sts in stocking st (= sleeve), insert a marker, 36-42-50-58-66-78 sts in stocking st (= front piece), insert a marker, 26 sts in stocking st (= sleeve), insert a marker, stocking st over the last 18-21-25-29-33-39 sts on round (= back piece). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On next round start inc for RAGLAN – see explanation above! Inc 1 st on each side of every marker on every other round 26-27-28-29-31-32 times = 332-352-376-400-432-464 sts. Piece measures 27-28-29-30-31-32 cm from shoulder (21-22-23-24-25-26 cm from cast-on edge). Now work as follows: Work the first 44-48-53-58-64-71 sts, slip the next 78-80-82-84-88-90 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under left sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts), work the next 88-96-106-116-128-142 sts, slip the next 78-80-82-84-88-90 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under right sleeve (insert a marker in the middle of these new sts), work the remaining 44-48-53-58-64-71 sts. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE.

BODY:
There are now 192-208-228-248-272-300 sts for body. Work in stocking st in the round until piece measures 25-26-27-28-29-30 cm. Work 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME inc 21-23-24-25-28-30 sts evenly = 213-231-252-273-300-330 sts. Switch to circular needle 3,5 and work rib = K 1/P 2 for 3 cm, then cast off with K over K and P over P.

SLEEVE:
Work sleeve in stocking st in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. There are 78-80-82-84-88-90 sts for each sleeve. Slip sts from stitch holder back on circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm and cast on 8 new sts under sleeve = 86-88-90-92-96-98 sts. Work in stocking st in the round, AT THE SAME TIME insert a marker in the middle of the new sts under sleeve. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker. Dec every 1½-1½-1½-1½-1-1 cm 16-16-16-16-17-17 times in total = 54-56-58-60-62-64 sts. When sleeve measures 30-29-29-28-28-27 cm, inc 6-7-8-9-10-11 st evenly = 60-63-66-69-72-75 sts. Switch to double pointed needle 3,5 and work rib = K 1/P 2 for 3 cm, then cast off with K over K and P over P. Sleeve measures 33-32-32-31-31-30 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and shoulders).
Work the other sleeve the same way.

Kris 30.03.2019 - 20:12:

I’m confused. I’m making M size after the Raglan instruction it says “Piece measures 11” from shoulder 8-3/4” from cast on edge” what????? That doesn’t make sense to me the cast on has an inch of ribbing shouldn’t the the measurement from cast on be longer? Sorry to be confused, I love this sweater, I’ve made top down sweaters in the past. Help!

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 12:46:

Dear Kris, you are working top down from the neck, so that some stitches cast on at the beginning of the pattern will shape the shoulders, that's why the height will be different from cast on edge or from shoulder (= fold piece as when you will wear it, you will see on the side the sts shaping shoulders). Happy knitting!

Landin 10.11.2018 - 22:01:

I am knitting the sleeve, and it says to "Dec every 1½-1½-1½-1½-1-1 cm / ½"-½"-½"-½"-3/8"-3/8" 16-16-16-16-17-17 times in total = 54-56-58-60-62-64 sts. Does this mean for me to decrease every 1.5 cm AND every 1.5 inches?

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 08:05:

Hi Landin, The pattern gives measurements in both centimeters and inches so you choose whichever of these you find easiest to work with, but not both. Happy knitting!

Emma 30.01.2018 - 03:02:

Hi. I am working on the raglan increase, and it tells me to "Beg 2 stitches before the marker: 1 YO, K4, 1 YO." Im not sure if I did it right, because there is the yarn over stitch, then a knit stitch, then a marker, then 3 knit stitches. Shouldn't the K4 be spread equally on both sides of the marker?

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 09:24:

Dear Emma, you start to inc when there are 2 sts before marker and work as follows: YO, K2, slip marker, K2, YO = you have increased 1 st on each side of the K4; you are increasing every other round. Happy knitting!

Sidney 27.01.2018 - 22:58:

Hi. I am knitting the size small sandy shore sweater, and I do not understand how to space out my increases. It says I should increase ten times, but there are 114 stitches. How often should I increase in this round?

DROPS Design 28.01.2018 kl. 06:52:

Hi Sidney, You divide the number of stitches by the number of increases, so 114 divided by 10 = 11.4. So increase after approx. every 11th stitch until you have increased 10 times. The increases will then be evenly spread. Happy knitting!

Anna 26.08.2017 - 02:27:

I do not understand how to pick the right size. Is the diagram shown in inches or cm. How do I take my measurements to make a good fit?

DROPS Design 26.08.2017 kl. 09:06:

Hello Anna. The diagram shows measures in cm. You can measure a similar garment you have and you are satisfied with and, comparing the measurements with the ones shown in the diagram, you should manage to choose the right size to knit. In this particular pattern, the garment has a loose fit. Happy knitting!

Mira Ekstrand 10.07.2017 - 07:54:

Hej igen Kan jag sticka tröjan i Muskat? jag tänkte göra tröjan i normal ärmlängd och 53 cm lång stl S, behöver jag mer garn då? Tar gärna tips på en annan klassisk raglantröja samma garngrupp men som stickas nerifrån och upp. Tack så länge :)

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 17:24:

Det går bra att sticka tröjan i Muskat. Eftersom garnmängden per nystan skiljer sig något (5 meter mindre i Muskat) och du vill sticka en längre modell skulle jag rekommendera att du reserverar åtminstone 2 nystan extra.

Mira Ekstrand 29.06.2017 - 18:51:

Hej! Jag brukar inte sticka på rundstickor och undrar varför mönstret är stickat uppifrån och ner? Maskorna blir ju "upp och ner". I raglan är det meningen att det ska bli så stora "hål" som bilden visar? Mira

DROPS Design 30.06.2017 kl. 13:00:

Hej! Denna modell ska stickas uppifrån och ner, fördelen med detta är att man enklare kan justera längden på plagget. Det ska bli hål i raglanen, men du kan naturligtvis sticka omslagen vridna så att hålen inte bildas.

Diana Jensen 06.06.2017 - 12:09:

Hej. Jeg skal til, at starte på denne trøje og er lidt i tvivl om starten. Skal jeg strikke rundt på rundpindende, så der bliver et "rør" eller skal jeg strikke frem og tilbage, så jeg får et firkantet stykke? (Bliver især i tvivl, da retstrik bliver beskrevet som først ret og så vrang ) Mvh Diana

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 14:20:

Hei Diana. Det skal strikkes rundt på rundpinne (som et rør). Teksten: RETSTRIK (strikkes rundt således): 1 omg ret og 1 omg vrang osv. - har nok blitt med ved en feiltakelse, den skal bli slettet.

Valeria 27.05.2017 - 01:39:

Hola me podría explicar cómo agregar los puntos debajo de la manga. No entiendo que significa. Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 28.05.2017 kl. 21:04:

How to print this pattern? Print Photo buttons work fine but I cannot print the pattern. When I try to Print Pattern I see only a one page advertisement of some sort, not a pattern. Thank you.

DROPS Design 07.05.2017 kl. 18:57:

Dear Julia, please click on the print pattern button, and just above the picture of advertisement there is a small text saying "continue to print the pattern" and a small arrow. If you clicj on this text it will take you to the printing page. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!
