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

DRESS:
Worked in the round, top down. Rounds start mid back.

YOKE:
Cast on 124-124-132-140-148-148 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Karisma. K 1 round. Then work 6 rounds rib = K 2/P 2. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm. On first round work as follows: K the first 16-16-18-18-20-20 and inc 1-2-2-2-2-2 sts evenly (= half back piece), work A.1a (= 6 sts on first round), K the next 18-18-18-22-22-22 and inc 2-2-2-2-4-4 sts evenly (= right sleeve), work A.1a over the next 6 sts, K the next 32-32-36-36-40-40 and inc 2-4-4-4-4-4 sts evenly (= front piece), work A.1a over the next 6 sts, K the next 18-18-18-22-22-22 and inc 2-2-2-2-4-4 sts evenly (= left sleeve), work A.1a over the next 6 sts, K the remaining 16-16-18-18-20-20 and inc 1-2-2-2-2-2 sts evenly (= half back piece) = 132-136-144-152-164-164 sts (+ 1 st that will be inc in each report of A.1a on round = 4 sts on round). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On next round work pattern and inc for raglan as follows: READ WHOLE SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING.

Continue in stocking st and A.1a in every transition between body and sleeves. When A.1a has been worked vertically, repeat A.1b over A.1a - NOTE: On last repeat of A.1b in height on yoke do not inc with YO (i.e. there are 6 sts in every repetition of A.1b when inc for raglan is done). AT THE SAME TIME on 2nd round in A.1a start inc for RAGLAN - see explanation above, on each side of A.1a/A.1b. NOTE: Inc differently on body and sleeves.
RAGLAN BODY:
Inc like this on every round 0-0-0-7-9-12 times, every other round 19-22-23-23-24-26 times and on every 4th round 1-1-1-0-0-0 times (= 20-23-24-30-33-38 times in total).
RAGLAN SLEEVES:
Inc like this every other round 13-18-23-22-20-18 times and every 4th round 4-3-1-2-4-7 times (= 17-21-24-24-24-25 times in total).

When all inc are done there are 280-312-336-368-392-416 sts on round. Work next round as follows: Work 40-44-47-53-58-63 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 sts under sleeve, work the next 80-88-94-106-116-126 sts (= front piece), slip the next 60-68-74-78-80-82 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 sts under sleeve, work the last 40-44-47-53-58-63 sts (= half back piece).

BODY:
There are now 176-192-208-232-256-280 sts for body. Continue in stocking st. Insert a marker in each side, in the middle of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 sts that were cast on under sleeves. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of markers (= 4 sts dec) - READ DECREASE TIP (body)! Dec like this every 6th round 2 times in total = 168-184-200-224-248-272 sts. When piece measures 7 cm, dec 25-30-35-37-39-41 sts evenly = 143-154-165-187-209-231 sts. NOTE: This is done to compensate for the 26-28-30-34-38-42 sts inc on 1st round in pattern A.2a. Work 1 round more that finishes when 2 sts remain on round. This is now beg of round. This is done to get a symmetrical pattern. Now work pattern as follows: * A.2a (= 3 sts on 1st round), K 8 * repeat from *-* 12-13-14-16-18-20 more times on round (= 13-14-15-17-19-21 repetitions) = 169-182-195-221-247-273 sts. Continue with pattern in the round like this. When entire A.2a has been worked vertically, there is 195-210-225-255-285-315 sts on round. Then work A.2b over A.2a until finished measurements AT THE SAME TIME inc in the sections with P and the sections in stocking st as follows:
INC IN SECTIONS IN STOCKING ST:
When piece measures 14 cm, inc 2 sts in every repetition in stocking st by making a YO inside 1 st K in each side of repetition – READ INCREASE TIP-1 (= 26-28-30-34-38-42 sts inc on round). Inc like this every 8 cm 3 times in total.
INC IN SECTIONS WITH P:
When piece measures 20 cm, inc 1 P st in every section with P - READ INCREASE TIP-2 (= 26-28-30-34-38-42 sts inc on round). Inc like this every 8 cm 3 times in total.

When all inc are done there are 351-378-405-459-513-567 sts on round. Continue until piece measures 83-86-89-92-95-97 cm measured from shoulder – adjust so that last round is 2nd round in A.2b. Cast off with K over K and P over P - READ CAST-OFF TIP.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Slip sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm and pick up 1 st in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new sts cast on under sleeve = 68-76-84-88-92-96 sts. Insert a marker in the middle of the new sts under the sleeve. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now continue in stocking st and A.1a mid under sleeve (i.e. 3 sts in A.1a on each side of marker). When A.1a has been worked vertically, continue with A.1b over A.1a. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of A.1b under sleeve - READ DECREASE TIP (sleeve). Dec like this every 8th-6th-5th-4th-4th-4th round 12-15-18-19-20-21 times in total = 44-46-48-50-52-54 sts. When sleeve measures 38-37-36-35-34-33 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because wider shoulders) - adjust so that next round is 2nd round in A.2b, inc 8-6-8-6-8-6 sts evenly over sts in stocking st = 52-52-56-56-60-60 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Now work rib (K 2/P 2) – adjust to work K over K and P over P over the 6 sts over A.2b. When rib measures 6 cm, cast off with K over K and P over P. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Siham Christensen 24.07.2019 - 18:07:

Hej. Når i skriver "Når A.1a er strikket færdig i højden repeteres A.1b over A.1a" betyder det at man kun repetere A.1b eller både A.1a og A.1b? Når man skal tage ud i hver omgang, skal man samtidigt strikke omslaget fra tidligere omgang drejet ret? På forhånd tak. Vh. Siham

DROPS Design 02.08.2019 kl. 11:52:

Hej Siham, Ja du fortsætter med kun A.1b i højden. Ja du strikker omslaget med ring i diagrammet ret (så der bliver hul) og det andet omslag drejet (så der ikke bliver hul) . God fornøjelse!

Is this pattern - or something similar - available for using 4 ply wool?

SELLIER CAZEEL MICHELE 08.05.2019 - 19:07:

Bonjour à toute l'équipe de Drops. Je viens de commencer le modèle 172-14 taille S. Je ne comprends pas vos explications concernant les augmentations de l'empiècement. A quel endroit du rang faut-il augmenter pour le dos et le devant? Les augmentations se rajoutent-elles à celles du raglan des manches? Pourriez-vous me détailler pour un rang où les placer? 16m A1 18m A1 32m A1 18m A1 16m. Je vous remercie de bien vouloir me venir en aide. Bien cordialement, Michèle

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 10:27:

Bonjour Mme Sellier Cazeel, les tours commencent au milieu dos, tricotez ainsi en S: 16 m + 1 augm (= 17 m) = demi-dos, tricotez A.1a (raglan), tricotez 18 m + 2 augm (= 20 m) = manche droite, A.1a (raglan), tricotez 32 m + 2 augm (= 34 m) = devant, A.1a, tricotez 18 m + 2 augm (= 20 m) = manche gauche, A.1a, et tricotez les 16 dernières m + 1 augm (= 17m). = vous avez 17 m pour chaque demi-dos, 34 m pour le devant, et 20 m pour chaque manche = 6 m dans chaque A.1 = 132 m. (+ 1 augm faite au 1er rang de chaque A.1 soit 136 m sur l'aiguille). Bon tricot!

Gabi 23.04.2019 - 18:47:

Hallo. Ich habe eine Frage zu den Zunahmen. Da steht z. B beim Rumpf und den Ärmeln 9 x... Aber was ist 9x? Je eine Masche zunehmen? Würde mich sehr freuen wenn Sie mir da helfen könnten. LG Gabi

DROPS Design 24.04.2019 kl. 08:46:

Liebe Gabi, die Zunahmen werden am Rumpfteil und an den Ärmel in unterschiedlichem Rythmus gearbeitet, dh beim Rumpfteil (= am Anfang Vorder- bzw Rückenteil) nehmen Sie je 1 M 9x in jeder Runde und 24 x in jeder 2. Runde (= 33 Zunahmenrunde für die Grösse XXL) - gleichzeitig nehmen Sie an den Ärmeln (am Anfang und Ende jeder Ärmel): 20 x in jeder 2. Runde und 4 x in jeder 4. Runde (= 24 Zunahmenrunde). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lene 11.02.2019 - 23:40:

Hei! Når jeg har kommet til der armene skal på egen tråd, skal mønsteret på begge sider av armen være med på den tråden? Er litt usikker på om jeg har økt riktig... I str XL har jeg nå 86 masker mellom hvert mønster på ermene.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 13:19:

hei Lene. Det står hvor mange masker som skal settes på en tråd til ermer, i XL er dette 78. Før du begynte med øking til raglan hadde du 24 masker på hvert erme. Du har økt 1 maske i hver side av ermet til raglan totalt 24 ganger (= 48 masker per erme). 24 + 48 = 72 masker på ermet, mellom hver rapport av A.1. Når arbeidet skal deles, blir det delt midt i hver rapport av A.1. Du strikker først 53 masker på bakstykket (20 masker fra starten + 30 maskene økt til raglan + 3 masker A.1) videre setter du 78 masker på en tråd (3 masker A.1, 72 masker på ermet og 3 masker A.1). gjenta over forstykket og det andre ermet. God fornøyelse

Marcha 31.01.2019 - 14:58:

Welke raglans horen bij lijf en welke bij mouw? Er zijn er 4 en ik tel vanaf de eerste naald na de boord.

DROPS Design 03.02.2019 kl. 11:58:

Dag Marcha

De raglanlijnen zitten tussen het voor-/achterpand en de mouw en deze raglanlijnen worden in A.1 gebreid. De eerste raglanlijn is tussen het achterpand en de linker mouw, de tweede tussen de linker mouw en het voorpand, en zo verder. Als je bij de eerste raglan bent zit je dus, ben je vóór A.1 dus op het achterpand en na A.1 op de mouw.

Siri Tørstad 17.01.2019 - 17:42:

Har et spørsmål vedr øking raglan bol og erme. Her står det at det skal økes hver 2.omgang og så skal det økes hver 4.omg . Hvordan får jeg til å øke både 2.omg og 4.omg når jeg skal øke hver 2.omg 18 ganger og samtidig øke hver 4.omg 3 ganger. For å få dette til så mener jeg at jeg må øke hver 3.omg 3 ganger. Så slipper jeg å kolidere de to økningene. Ble dette forståelig???

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 15:07:

Hei Siri. Du øker ikke hver 2 og 4 omgang samtidig. Du skal øke hver 2 omgang 18 ganger, når du er ferdig med det går du over til å øke hver 4 omgang, og gjør dette 3 ganger. Du har da økt totalt 21 ganger. God fornøyelse.

Sabine 02.11.2018 - 17:19:

Ich würde das Kleid gern in einem feineren Garn stricken. Wie viel Gramm Wolle empfehlen Sie bei Größe S in Drops Lace?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:09:

Liebe Sabine, dieses Kleid wird mit einer Maschenprobe von 21 M x 21 R glatt rechts gestrickt = 10 x 10 cm. Sollten Sie ein dünneres Garn benutzen, dann sollten Sie die ganze Anleitung neu kalkulieren. Hier finden Sie alle unsere Kleider mit einem Garngruppe A (= dünner als für dieses Modell) gestrickt/gehäkelt wurden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jean 25.09.2018 - 00:02:

INC IN SECTIONS WITH P, should there be 2 P increases? The math for finishing with 378 sts doesn't fit if only increasing 1 P for 3 times. Are the increases in P and stockinette (when repeating A.2a in the body) suppose to be on the same round? I am confused by the 3 1/8" and 8" measurements. Should this measurement be taken from the beginning of the body?

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 kl. 10:07:

Dear Jean, in size M you have 14 repeats of A.2 and 28 P-sections (at the beg and end of each A.2), you have 210 sts and increase 2 sts in each of the stocking section a total of 3 times (= 28 sts inc x 3 = 84 sts inc in total) and dec 1 st in each P-section (28 sts inc x 3 times = 84 sts inc in total) = 210 + 84 + 84 = 378 sts. You inc in the stocking st sections after 14 cm then every 8th cm a total of 3 times and in the P sections after 20 cm every 8th cm a total of 3 times. The increases in stocking and in P will not happen on the same round - measure from the beg of body - see NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Happy knitting!

Friederike 09.08.2018 - 08:41:

Hallo, wie oft/bis zu welcher Länge muss ich A.1b bei Gr. L in der Passe wiederholen? 20 cm oder 20 cm + 5 cm? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 09.08.2018 kl. 08:55:

Liebe Friederike, nach A.1a stricken Sie A.1b bis Passe ist fertig, dh bis alle Raglanzunahmen gestrickt sind. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
