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

PATTERN: See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Dec as follows: Beg 3 sts before st with marker: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

If knitting tension is incorrect in height and the knitting is too tight, the raglan dec will be too short and the armholes too small. This can be adjusted by working 1 extra round without dec evenly spaced between dec.

Worked in the round. Cast on 146-162-174-190-210-230 sts on circular needle size 5 mm. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work as follows from the side: 21-25-28-32-30-35 sts in stocking st, * P 2, A.1 ( = 5 sts) *, repeat from *-* 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in total, P 2, A.2 (= 13 sts), P 2, *A.1, P 2,* repeat from *-* 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in total, 42-50-56-64-60-70 sts in stocking st, * P 2, A.1*, repeat from *-* 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in total, P 2, A.2 (= 13 sts), P 2, *A.1, P 2,* repeat from *-* 1-1-1-1-2-2 times in total, 21-25-28-32-30-35 sts in stocking st. Insert 2 markers in the piece; 1 at the beg of round and one after 73-81-87-95-105-115 sts. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 5 cm, dec 1 st on each side of markers, repeat dec every 3 cm 4 more times - READ DECREASE TIP = 126-142-154-170-190-210 sts. When piece measures 21 cm, inc 1 st on each side of markers, repeat inc every 6-6-7-7-8-8 cm 2 more times = 138-154-166-182-202-222 sts. When piece measures 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm, cast off 6 sts in each side (= 3 sts on each side of marker in each side), work the remaining sts as before = 126-142-154-170-190-210 sts.

Cast on 52-56-60-62-66-70 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm with Paris. Work 2 ridges, then work in stocking st until piece measures 3 cm. Now cast off 6 sts mid under sleeve = 46-50-54-56-60-64 sts. Knit another sleeve edge the same way.

Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 218-242-262-282-310-338 sts. Insert 1 marker in every transition between sleeves and body = 4 markers. Continue in stocking st and with pattern as before while at the same time on next round dec for raglan in each of the 4 transitions between body and sleeves (i.e. 8 dec per dec-round) - READ DECREASE TIP AND KNITTING TIP! Dec every other round 16-16-16-17-18-18 times, then every round 0-2-4-4-5-7 times. After all dec, 90-98-102-114-126-138 sts remain on needle. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round dec 6-11-12-22-31-40 sts evenly = 84-87-90-92-95-98 sts. Cast off.

Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Jeg strikker strl M Ihht. oppskriften skal det være 14 m( A1) pluss 13m ( A2) og 14m ( A1) altså 41 masker i mønster Pluss 50 m Glattstrikk i hver side Dette blir da 41+50+41+50 og da mangler jeg 20 masker .... i oppskriften står det at jeg skal legge opp 162 ???? Hva gjør jeg galt her ?? Får ikke antallet / mønster til å gå opp Skal eller kan jeg utelate mønster bak ?? ?

DROPS Design 04.04.2019 kl. 15:28:

Hei Elisabeth. A.1 er 5 masker. Du strikker slik: 25 masker glattstrikk, videre strikkes mønster slik: 2 masker vrang, A.1 (=5 masker) altså totalt 7 masker. Videre strikkes 2 masker vrang, A.2 (=13 masker), 2 masker vrang (totalt 17 masker), så styrikker du A.1, 2 masker vrang (= totaslt 7 masker). Du har nå strikket mønster over 7 + 17 + 7 = 31 masker. Videre strikker du 50 masker glattstrikk, gjentar de 31 maskene i mønster, og strikker 25 masker glattstrikk. 25 + 31 + 50 + 31 + 25 = 162 masker. God fornøyelse

Is there supposed to be a one stitch decrease every time you do A1 and A2 and just shift the purls so the pattern still lines up? I've watched the video multiple times but it hasn't helped because there isn't sound, its too fast, and I don't know continental style. I'm not sure if I'm following the pattern correctly. Thank you!

Dear Shawn, the number of sts should be the same in A.1 and A.2 all the way. Work row 3 in A.1 as follows: K2 tog, YO, K1, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso. Work rows 3, 7, 11 and 15 in A.2 as follows: K4 rog, YO, (K1, YO) work from (to) a total of 5 times, K4 twisted tog. Happy knitting!

Very confusing that pattern states repeat from *-* 1 times in total as one should not repeat at all. If done just the once (for size medium) it all makes sense. Please tell Wilma that as she struggled with this. The phrase 'repeat' is very misleading for smaller sizes.

Ska det stickas 2 aviga även på de varv som är mellan mönstervarven. Saknar det i texten. Hälsningar Kristina

DROPS Design 20.06.2017 kl. 13:41:

Jo du ska sticka 2 aviga maskor mellan mönstret på varje varv.

Diana Hart 23.07.2016 - 11:05:

On sleeve edge is the cast off at the beginning of last row or the middle of last row. Forgive my ignorance but I am not used to knitting in the round but am keen to learn as I hate seaming!!

DROPS Design 25.07.2016 kl. 08:52:

Dear Mrs Hart, you can either cast off the last 3 sts on round + the first 3 sts on round, or cast off the first 3 sts at beg of round, K to the last 3 sts and cast off these 3 sts. Happy knitting!

Hej, jeg er i gang med model nr. w-589.Der er fejl mht mønstret, som åbenbart også er bagpå, men bliver så i venstre side for midten ifølge opskriften, har været i Nikoline på Nørrebro, som er enig med mig, meget ærgerligt!! mvh Helen L. Svenningsen tlf. 5142 145

Wilma Schuttert 02.02.2016 - 01:19:

Hoi Wilma. Er staat het volgende in het patroon: Zet 146-162-174-190-210-230 st op met rondbreinld 5 mm. Denk je een fout te hebben ontdekt, laat dan graag weten waarom en welke maat je breit.
