For the yoke, after doing the bind offs and have 70sts on needle when changing to 3.5mm needles it says 104 sts... Well from the 70 left on needle + 26 from st holder, I only have 96sts on my needle.. where do I get the additional 8sts? Also, for the raglan it says to do DCs 16 times and then 3 more times consecutively but in order to get the 70 sts at the end I had to do 3 more DCs before reaching the neckline. Please add it to the pattern for future knitters?

DROPS Design 16.09.2019 kl. 10:02:

Dear Mrs Preston, you decrease 8 stitches a total of 16 times on every other round + 3-5 times on every round (= 152-168 sts dec for raglan) and for neck, you slip 26 sts for the neck on a thread + cast off for neck on each side 2 sts 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times (= 26+ 4 sts x 2 sides = 34 sts for neck), there should be 256-272 at the beg of yoke - 152-168 sts dec for raglan - 34-34 sts dec for neck = 70 sts remain for raglan and for neck. You then pick up 34 sts (= the 26 sts from thread + 8 sts on each side) = 104 sts for neck. Happy knitting!

Rushd Nakade 21.01.2019 - 13:24:

Am wondering after joining sleeves with body , how to do back n forth with pattern as after raglan decrease started it will close all opening n it has to be worked on round right? please correct if am doing something wrong

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 16:22:

Dear Mrs Rushd, after you have slipped the sts from neck on front piece on a thread, jusst continue back and forth (make sure that the cable rows will still be worked from RS) starting rows now from neck and decreasing as before for raglan cast off for neck as explain for the size at the beg of every row both from RS and from WS (= each side of the middle sts for neck). Happy knitting!

Rushd 20.01.2019 - 11:41:

Am working on yoke. But one side where sleeves are join is close.i.e. where 6 sts had been bindoff in body for armhole. While other sleeves is join on other side where the body is open. Can i close the side of body n armhole gap after finishing the sweater?

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 10:55:

Dear Mrs Rushd, body has been worked in the round and you have cast off 6 sts on each side of the jumper for the armholes. Each sleeve will then be joined over these 6 sts - see the video below showing how to place sleeves on same circular needle as body. Happy knitting!

Rushd 18.01.2019 - 19:00:

Nice pattern

Rushd 18.01.2019 - 13:31:

While working on body when piece measure 22cm it is ask to dec sts.am confuse as to how to dec totally. ,i.e . Start n end we have to dec 3 sts each side. And the 6sts again for armhole which comes in the middle 28sts. Mean explain how to dec.

DROPS Design 18.01.2019 kl. 14:38:

Dear Rushd, rounds are starting in the side, so that you cast off the first 3 sts on round (half the armhole on the side), work until 3 sts remain before the marker on the other side, cast off the next 6 sts (= 3 sts on each side of the marker), work until 3 sts remain before last marker, cast off the last 3 sts. Happy knitting!

Jeg har strikket i over 50 år, og trenger hjelp, for første gang. Legg opp: OK Strikk i henhold til størrelse, osv etter A1, og nå føler jeg meg virkelig dum. Er ikke dette en vanlig vrangbord i 2r og 2vr? Og hvor strikkes A2?

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 09:25:

Hei Kirsten. Jo, A.1 er en vanlig vrangbord 2 rett, 1 vrang. Det er laget diagram slik at det blir lettere å skjønne hvordan A.2 strikkes over vrangborden. Du strikker A.2 etter at du har strikket vrangborden over 5 cm. Det står slik: Bytt til rundp 4 og strikk slik I ALLE STR: Strikk rett over de første 17-21-23-25-27 m og fell samtidig 3-5-5-5-5 m jevnt fordelt over disse m, strikk og fell etter A.2 over de neste 58 m,... osv. A.2 strikkes altså over A.1. God fornøyelse

Rushd Nakade 11.12.2018 - 18:59:

I am working on sleeves. What you mean by Inc 2 sts mid under sleeves? Also at the 26cm for size 1 cast off 6 sts mid under sleeves. Can you please explain Thanks

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 08:36:

Hi Rushd. You increase mid under sleeve to make the increase as invisible as possible. The beginning/end of the round is normally mid under sleeve as there will always be a slight irregularity here. Increase 1 stitch at the beginning, and 1 stitch at the end of the round= 2 stitches increased mid under sleeve. When the sleeve measures 26 cm, you cast off 6 stitches. This is where the sleeve will meet the body and will later be sewn to the 6 stitches you cast off for sleeves on the body. Happy knitting.

Rushd Nakade 25.11.2018 - 23:27:

Pattern ask for dec when you change from 3.5mm to 4mm, am working on size 2 i.e 2yrs. A total of 14 stitches are asked to dec. But when u read the pattern. Its 3 stitches in first 17, 3 stitches in last 17 and 6 stitches in middle 34 stitches. So its total of 12 stitches where to dec those 2 stitches so make it 160. Plz explain.

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 10:35:

Dear Mrs Rushd, you have to decrease evenly over the rib and at the same time you will work A.2 where you will decrease 6 sts each time you'll work A.2. So that you will dec: 3 + 6 + 3 sts + 6 sts in each of the 2 A.2 = 24 sts dec, there were 184 sts - 24= 160 sts remain. Happy knitting!
