PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. Work entire pattern in stockinette st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting gauge to tighten when working pattern on yoke, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

All inc are done from RS. Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round P YO twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Inc on each side of marker: All inc are done from RS as follows: Work until 2 sts remain before marker: Make 1 YO, K 4 (marker is in the middle of these 4 sts), make 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next row P YO twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Inc for raglan on each side of marker in every transition between sleeves and body. All inc are done from RS as follows:
Work until 1 sts remain before marker: Make 1 YO, K 2 sts (marker is in the middle of these 2 sts), make 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round P YOs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sides on body and mid under sleeve):
Dec on each side of marker. All dec are done from RS as follows: Beg 4 sts before marker and K 2 tog, K 4 (marker is between these 4 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

Tusind tak for svar. Jeg mente forkanter, kanter på forstykkerne, og ikke firkanter 😊

Hanne Gunnertoft 27.12.2016 - 17:33:

Hej. Jrgvhar opgivet at strikke mønster på vrangpinde. Er istedet startet på jumperen, og tænker att jeg kan sy på maskine og klippe den op foran, og så strikke firkanter på. Er der noget jeg skal være opmærksom på?

DROPS Design 30.12.2016 kl. 12:33:

Hej Hanne. Ja, det forstaar jeg godt ;) Du kan sagtens klippe op (saet 3-5 m ekstra op til dette og strik rundt). Jeg ville saa tage maskerne til stolperne op bagefter og strikke dem naar der er klippet op og daekke kanten fra klippemaskerne med et paent baand paa indersiden. Jeg forstaar ikke hvad du mner med at strikke firkanter paa?

Rian 21.10.2016 - 19:28:

Ben net begonnen aan de pas: tel patroon A2. De 2e regel is parelgrijs, de 3e regel antraciet, de 4e gemengd parelgrijs en antraciet. Maar hoe doe je dat, want je wol parelgrijs zit aan de andere kant van het breiwerk. Moet je steeds dan een nieuwe bol wol aanspreken? Verderop in het A2 patroon kom je soortgelijk situaties tegen. Hopelijk kunnen jullie me helpen.

DROPS Design 24.10.2016 kl. 11:07:

Hoi Rian. Je kan inderdaad met een nieuwe bol beginnen - of je kan de draad knippen en verder gaan met de bol.

Martina 22.04.2016 - 12:01:

Welches Alternativgarn können Sie empfehlen? Es müsste kratzfrei sein und aus derselben Garngruppe kommen...

DROPS Design 22.04.2016 kl. 12:55:

Liebe Martina, unsere Empfehlungen finden Sie unter: Alternative Garne (Garngruppe B). Cotton Merino oder Merino extra fine (nicht zu locker stricken!) wären sicher eine gute kratzfreie Alternative.

Ellen 28.02.2016 - 04:46:

Would there be any reason this could not be knit in the round, adding a steek, then adding a button band?

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 09:24:

Dear Ellen, you are welcome to adjust pattern to add steek sts and adding the button band on each front piece afterwards. Happy knitting!

Åse Halonen 15.01.2016 - 07:56:

Er det mulig å få brystvidde / overvidde på oppskriftene? Det er ikke bestandig at X og XL osv er lik fra oppskrift til oppskrift, eller fra leverandørene. Det er veldig lett å velge str når f.eks XL = f.eks 112 cm

DROPS Design 19.01.2016 kl. 10:06:

Hej. Längst ner på alla våra oppskrifter hittar du en måleskiss. Lycka till!

Michela Sali 13.11.2015 - 17:13:

Non so usare i ferri circolari, come posso trasformare le spiegazioni per usare i ferri diritti? Grazie

DROPS Design 14.11.2015 kl. 22:13:

Buonasera Michela, per il cardigan non è un problema perchè non viene lavorato in tondo, per cui può utilizzare i ferri dritti, per il cappello la lavorazione richiede l'uso dei ferri circolari e non è molto fattibile con i ferri dritti: potrebbe in alternativa utilizzare il gioco di ferri. Buon lavoro!

Stacey 05.11.2015 - 11:37:

The pattern says start A2 on a RS row and complete A2 which u get 301 sts and then start RS row increase but I counted and their are 35 rows so the next row would be an WS row. So I'm slightly confused ? X

Dear Stacey your question has been forwarded to our Design team. Thank you in advance for your patience.

Elly 30.08.2015 - 14:12:

Nog een vraag over de pas: wordt er met de raglan gestart in dezelfde naald waarin met telpatroon A3 wordt begonnen? Of start ik met de raglan in de daarop volgende naald aan de goede kant? (Dus in de derde naald van telpatroon A3.) B.v.d., Elly

DROPS Design 01.09.2015 kl. 17:04:

Hoi Elly. Ja, je begint met het meerderen voor de raglan TEGELIJKERTIJD als je het patroon A.3 breit.
