Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

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. Diagrams show all rows seen from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows from RS: Beg 3 sts before marker: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows from WS: Beg 3 sts before marker:
P 2 twisted tog, P 2 (marker is between these sts), P 2 tog.

KNITTING TIP:
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 row without dec evenly spaced between dec.

BUTTONHOLES:
Dec for buttonholes on right band. 1 buttonhole = K tog 2nd and 3rd st from mid front, then make 1 YO. Dec for buttonholes when piece measures:
SIZE S: 5, 13, 21, 30, 39 and 48 cm.
SIZE M: 5, 14, 23, 32, 41 and 50 cm.
SIZE L: 4, 12, 20, 28, 36, 44 and 52 cm
SIZE XL: 4, 12, 20, 28, 36, 45 and 54 cm

--------------------------------------------------------


JACKET:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 155-171-183-199-219-239 sts (incl 5 band sts in each side) on circular needle size 5 mm. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work as follows from RS: 5 sts in garter st, P 2, A.1 (= 5 sts), P 2, stocking st over the next 48-56-62-70-73-83 sts, * 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, stocking st over the next 48-56-62-70-73-83 sts, P 2, A.1, P 2, and 5 sts in garter st. The 5 sts in garter st in each side = bands. Work bands in garter st until finished measurements. Continue pattern like this. Dec for BUTTONHOLES on right band - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Insert 2 markers in the piece; 41-45-48-52-57-62 sts in from each side (back piece = 73-81-87-95-105-115 sts). When piece measures 5 cm, dec 1 st on each side of markers, repeat dec every 3 cm 4 more times - READ DECREASE TIP = 135-151-163-179-199-219 sts. When piece measures 21 cm, inc 1 st on each side of each marker, repeat inc every 6-6-7-7-8-8 cm 2 more times = 147-163-175-191-211-231 sts. When piece measures 36-37-38-39-40-41 cm (on a row from RS), cast off 6 sts in each side (= 3 sts on each side of marker in each side), work the remaining sts as before = 135-151-163-179-199-219 sts.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Cast on 52-56-60-62-66-70 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST- see explanation above, 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.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off (without working them first) = 227-251-271-291-319-347 sts. Insert 1 marker in every transition between sleeves and body = 4 markers. Continue in garter st and with pattern as before while at the same time on next row from RS dec for raglan in each of the 4 transitions between body and sleeves (i.e. 8 dec per dec-row) - READ DECREASE TIP AND KNITTING TIP! Dec every other row 16-16-16-17-18-18 times and then every row 0-2-4-4-5-7 times. After all dec are done, 99-107-111-123-135-147 sts remain on needle. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 6-11-12-22-31-40 sts evenly = 93-96-99-101-104-107 sts. Cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves. Sew the buttons on to the left band.

Please tell me what I should do on the WS rows for the body after the garter stitch lower edge, i.e. the RS begins "5sts garter stitch, P2, A1 etc." What will the P2 stitches be on the WS? Thank you.

DROPS Design 05.05.2019 kl. 19:36:

Hello Marilyn. On the WS the P2 will become K2. Happy knitting!

Helena 13.04.2018 - 17:11:

I do not understand on the sleeve edge where you bind off 6 sts mid under sleeve. Do you decrease at the beginning, end, etc?

DROPS Design 13.04.2018 kl. 17:20:

Dear Helena, when sleeve edge measures 3 cm, bind off the last 3 sts on round + the first 3 sts on round = 6 sts are now bound off, cut the yarn, put aside and work the 2nd sleeve. When you will work yoke, you will slip the sleeve edge sts over the 6 sts bound off on body (see video. Happy knitting!

Olwyn Carrier 22.02.2018 - 17:04:

Hi. I'm a little confused. On the sleeve section for 168.9 are they worked in the round.

DROPS Design 23.02.2018 kl. 06:34:

Hi Olwyn, Yes, the short sleeves are worked in the round. Happy knitting!

Edith 04.06.2017 - 09:35:

Bonjour et merci pour ce sympathique modèle. J'ai lu plusieurs fois les explications et je ne vois pas où placer les marqueurs. Merci pour votre aide. Edith

DROPS Design 05.06.2017 kl. 14:53:

Bonjour, 2 marqueurs sur les cotes se trouvent à 41-45-48-52-57-62 mailles des bords de chaque côté (dos = 73-81-87-95-105-115 mailles) – placez les marqueurs entre les mailles (pas dans les mailles) - voir partie GILET. 4 marqueurs pour realiser le reglan (quand toutes les parties sont deja prises ensemble – voir partie EMPIÈCEMENT): placer 1 marqueur à chaque transition des manches avec le dos/les devants = 4 marqueurs (et ici les marqueures se trouvent entre les mailles). J’espere que ce sera plus clair. Bon tricot !

Jeg skal strikke charlotte cardigan og har lagt opp 171 til str m. Når jeg skal strikke første omgang etter 2 riller stemmer ikke maskeantallet. Det blir for mange masker dersom jeg følger oppskrifta

DROPS Design 07.09.2016 kl. 13:50:

Hei Katrin. Jeg har talt efter og jeg faar det til at gaa op for denne str. Du skal strikke: 5 m rille, 2 m vr, A.1 (= 5 m), 2 m vr, glstrikk over de neste 56 m, * 2 m vr, A.1*, totalt 1 ganger, 2 m vr, A.2 (= 13 m), 2 m vr, *A.1, 2 m vr,* totalt 1 ganger, glstrikk over de neste 56 m, 2 m vr, A.1, 2 m vr, og 5 m rille. Det bliver 171 m i alt.

How do I do the K 4 twisted together? in the Charlotte Cardigan.

DROPS Design 19.07.2016 kl. 09:20:

Dear Dee, watch this video on how to k4 twisted together. Hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Dee Cortiglio 19.07.2016 - 02:37:

I'm having some trouble using the A.2 Chart for the Charlotte Cardigan. How do you do the "K 4 twisted together"? in the back lace work. Any help would be appreciated. Dee

DROPS Design 19.07.2016 kl. 09:20:

Dear Mrs Cortiglio, watch this video on how to k4 twisted together. Hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Mona Røsand 07.06.2016 - 18:04:

Om knappe hull : det står strikk 2m, strikk 3m sammen, et kast. Sitter du ikke da igjen med 4m og ikke 5 som du startet med?

DROPS Design 08.06.2016 kl. 16:19:

Hei Mona. Der staar: 1 knapphull = strikk 2.og 3.m fra midt foran rett sammen og lag deretter 1 kast. Dvs, du strikker maske nummer 2 OG 3 sammen = 2 m bliver 1, saa du faar ikke mindre.

Inge Nielsen 03.03.2016 - 20:08:

Hvordan skal jeg forstå diagram A1 og A2? Jeg har set i opskrift DROPS 168-15, hvor det samme mønster er benyttet. Her er et billede af mønsteret tæt på, hvor jeg kan tælle at der er 2 p mellem hulrækkerne, altså hulrække på hver 4. p. Jeg opfatter at en kvardrat i diagrammet dækker over 1 maske ret på retten og vrang på vrangen. Er det forkert opfattet? Venlig hilsen Inge Nielsen

DROPS Design 08.03.2016 kl. 09:42:

Hej Inge, du start altid i nederste højre hjørne, hver rude er én maske. Her kan du se hvordan selve mønsterpinden strikkes.
