GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

Dec 2 sts in every transition between body and sleeves.
Dec as follows:
Beg 3 sts before marker and work as follows: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 210-224-252-266-294-336 sts with light gray on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work A.1 (= 15-16-18-19-21-24 repetitions in width). Work A.1 1 time vertically, on last round in A.1 adjust no of sts to 180-190-210-230-260-290. Work A.2 (= 18-19-21-23-26-29 repetitions in width). Work A.2 1 time vertically, on last round dec 12-10-6-2-8-14 sts evenly = 168-180-204-228-252-276 sts. Work A.3 over all sts. Insert 2 markers in the piece; one at beg of round and one after 84-90-102-114-126-138 sts (= sides). Continue with A.3 AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm / 4¾'', dec 1 st on each side of every marker (= 4 sts dec), repeat dec every 2 cm / 3/4'' 4 more times = 148-160-184-208-232-256 sts. NOTE: Because of dec A.3 will not fit in the side but make sure that holes fit according to pattern). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 26 cm / 10 1/4'' in all sizes, inc 1 st on each side of every marker (= 4 sts inc). Repeat inc every 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''-1½'' 4 more times, work the inc sts in A.3 = 168-180-204-228-252-276 sts.

When piece measures 41-42-43-44-45-46 cm / 16 1/8''-16½''-17''-17¼''-17¾''-18'', bind off for armholes in each side as follows: bind off the first 4 sts on round, work until 4 sts remain before the other marker, bind off the next 8 sts, work until 4 sts remain, bind off these 4 sts. There are 76-82-94-106-118-130 sts on back piece/front piece. Put piece aside and knit the sleeves.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 48-48-48-48-60-60 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with light gray. Work 2 ridges, then work in stockinette st until piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8''. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid under sleeve. Continue with A.3. When piece measures 9 cm / 3½'', inc 2 st under sleeve – work the inc sts in A.3. Inc every 4-3-2½-2-3-2½ cm / 1½"-1 1/8"-7/8"-3/4"-1 1/8"-7/8" 9-12-14-16-12-14 more times = 68-74-78-82-86-90 sts. When piece measures approx. 49-49-48-48-47-47 cm / 19 1/4"-19 1/4"-19"-19"-18½"-18½" (adjust to end at the same row in A.3 as on body), bind off the middle 8 sts under sleeve for armhole = 60-66-70-74-78-82 sts remain on round. Put piece aside and make another sleeve.

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 272-296-328-360-392-424 sts. Beg of round is now in transition between right sleeve and back piece, cut the yarn and beg here. Insert 1 marker in all transitions between sleeves and body (= 4 markers). Continue with A.3 as before, on next round beg dec for RAGLAN – see explanation above (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every other round 22-22-22-23-24-25 more times and then every round 0-3-5-6-7-8 times - AT THE SAME TIME when dec for raglan has been done 2-2-3-3-4-4 times (there are now 256-280-304-336-360-392 sts on round) work next round as follows (beg before raglan dec between right sleeve and back piece): Dec for raglan as before – always work sts in raglan with light gray, A.4 over the next 66-72-82-94-104-116 sts (= back piece), dec for raglan, A.4 over the next 50-56-58-62-64-68 sts (= left sleeve), dec for raglan, A.4 over the next 66-72-82-94-104-116 sts (= front piece), dec for raglan, A.4 over the last 50-56-58-62-64-68 sts (= right sleeve). NOTE: Arrow in diagram shows middle of A.4. Count out from the middle when starting to work pattern on sleeve and back piece/front piece so that the pattern is the same in each side on each part. Continue with A.4 and raglan. When pattern has been worked, continue in stockinette st with light gray and raglan as before. After all dec for raglan 88-88-104-120-136-152 sts remain on round. Work 2 ridges over all sts, on first round dec 10-10-16-28-40-52 sts evenly = 78-78-88-92-96-100 sts. Bind off.

Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Hallo, ik heb bijna de 2 mouwen gebreid en vroeg me af of ik de pas misschien beter met naalden 4.5 zou breien, om te voorkomen dat de jacquard niet te veel gaat trekken, waardoor de afmetingen niet meer zouden kloppen

DROPS Design 01.09.2015 kl. 16:36:

Hoi Mieke. Ik zou hier voorzichtig mee zijn. Als je stekenverhouding voor het patroon past (21 st x 28 nld tricotst) dan zou je afmetingen voor de pas ook moeten passen. Brei je met een dikkere naald en heb je dan meer st en nld op de 10x10 cm dan kan het pas later gaan lubberen.

Een speels modelletje en heel afwisselend om te breien.
