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

See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Inc every other round as follows: Inc 4 sts on back piece, 4 sts on front piece and 4 sts on each sleeve (= 16 sts inc in total).

Inc as follows before marker (beg 2 sts before marker):
Work 2 sts in 1 st, 1 YO, K 1, marker. K YOs on next round to make a hole.

Inc as follows after marker:
Marker, K 1, 1 YO and work 2 sts in next st. K YOs on next round to make a hole.
Inc 16 sts like this 1-1-2-2-1-1 more times (= 2-2-3-3-2-2 times in total, first inc is explained in text).

Then inc every other round as follows: Inc 2 sts on back piece, 2 sts on front piece and 2 sts on each sleeve (= 8 sts inc in total).
Inc as follows before marker (beg 1 sts before marker):
1 YO, K 1, marker.

Inc as follows after marker:
Marker, K 1, 1 YO.
K YOs on next round to make a hole. Inc 8 sts this way 20-22-22-24-28-30 times in total.

INCREASE TIP (applies to inc in the sides of body):
Beg 1 sts before marker, 1 YO, K 2 (marker is in the middle of these 2 sts), 1 YO (= 2 sts inc). On next round K YOs twisted to avoid holes.

Worked in the round on circular needle from mid back, top down. Cast on 108-112-120-124-128-132 sts on a short circular needle size 3.5 mm with 2 strands Kid-Silk. K 1 round, then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 3 cm. Work 2 ridges, on first row in last ridge inc 2-10-10-22-38-54 sts evenly = 110-122-130-146-166-186 sts. Remove one strand, then work with 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work as follows from mid back and inc for RAGLAN – see explanation above: 16-19-21-25-30-35 sts in stocking st, work 2 sts in next st, 1 YO, 2 sts in stocking st (insert a marker between these sts), 1 YO, work 2 sts in next st, A.1 (= 3 sts), A.2 over the next 12 sts, 2 sts in next st, 1 YO, 2 sts in stocking st (insert a marker between these sts), 1 YO, 2 sts in next st, 32-38-42-50-60-70 sts in stocking st, 2 sts in next st, 1 YO, 2 sts in stocking st (insert a marker between these sts), 1 YO, work 2 sts in next st, A.1, A.2 over the next 12 sts, 2 sts in next st, 1 YO, 2 sts in stocking st (insert a marker between these sts), 1 YO, 2 sts in next st, 16-19-21-25-30-35 sts in stocking st (= 126-138-146-162-182-202 sts). First inc is now done. Continue this pattern, and inc for raglan as explained above. Work the new sts on sleeves in A.1 and A.2. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When all inc for raglan are done, there are 302-330-354-386-422-458 sts on round. Piece measures 23-24-25-26-28-30 cm from shoulder (19-20-21-22-24-26 cm from cast-on edge). Work next round as follows: Work 42-47-51-57-64-71 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 67-71-75-79-83-87 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 sts under sleeve, work the next 84-94-102-114-128-142 sts (= front piece), slip the next 67-71-75-79-83-87 sts on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8 new sts under sleeve, work the last 42-47-51-57-64-71 sts (= half back piece).

There are now 184-204-220-244-272-300 sts on body. Continue in stocking st. Insert a marker in each side, in the middle of the 8 new sts that were cast on. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. When piece measures 4 cm, inc 1 st on each side of each marker (= 4 sts inc) - READ INCREASE TIP, inc every 3 cm 9 times in total = 220-240-256-280-308-336 sts. When piece measures 36-37-38-39-39-39 cm, work 2 ridges over all sts. Cast off, piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from cast-on edge.

Worked in the round. Slip sts from sleeve back on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 3.5 mm, pick up 1 st in each of the 8 sts under sleeve = 75-79-83-87-91-95 sts. Insert 1 marker mid under sleeve = beg of round. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue with A.1 and A.2, work the sts in each side that do not fit the pattern in stocking st. When piece measures 4 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker. Dec every 3-2½-2-2-2-2 cm 10-11-12-12-13-14 times in total = 55-57-59-63-65-67 sts. When piece measures 40-40-39-39-37-36 cm, work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above! Then cast off. NOTE: Because of lace pattern the sleeve will stretch lengthwise. Try the jumper and work sleeve to desired length. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Bonjour, en tricotant comme le modele avec des aiguilles 3,5 et 1 fil, à la fin des augmentations du raglan, j'arrive au bon nombre de mailles, mais il me manque 10 bons cm de hauteur sur la taille XL (au lieu de 26 cm, j'obtiens 16 cm et au lieu de 22 cm , j'obtiens 12 cm)! Donc je crains que l'emmanchure soit trop petite. Qu'en pensez-vous? merci

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 10:33:

Bonjour Mme Palma, si vous n'avez que 12 cm avec les 3 cm de côtes + les 54 rangs du raglan, vous n'avez probablement pas la bonne tension en hauteur (= 30 rangs = 10 cm). N'hésitez pas à également vérifier votre tension en largeur (il semble qu'il y ait beaucoup de différence), et ajustez la taille des aiguilles pour avoir le bon échantillon si besoin. Bon tricot!

Jessie 22.02.2019 - 21:32:

I sent in a question a bit ago, but maybe did not word it clearly. When I do the raglan increase every other row, DO I KNIT THE ROWS IN BETWEEN THE INCREASE ROWS? I know I have to continue the lace pattern in the sleeves. Many thanks for any help.

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 23:33:

Hello Jessie. Yes, you knit the rounds between the increase rounds. Happy knitting!

Jessie Davies 22.02.2019 - 18:57:

I have just finished the first increase on the jumper. Do I increase every row once for size medium and then every other row?

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 23:30:

Hello Jessie. You have to increase every other round. Happy knitting!

Mio 22.10.2018 - 20:39:

Thank you.

Mio 14.10.2018 - 18:07:

How many stiches are for the front of neck and how many for the back of the neck before begining increasing?

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 10:36:

Dear Mio, this depends on the size, you will add markers on the row with increases (when working 1st row in A.1) to "divide" piece into back, sleeves and front pieces, after this round, you should have a total of 126-138-146-162-182-202sts on needle. Happy knitting!

Maeve 24.08.2018 - 21:03:

What does "work 2 sts in next st" mean? Is that to knit front and back in one stitch in order to make an increase?

DROPS Design 25.08.2018 kl. 08:00:

Hi Maeve, Yes it is. Happy knitting!

Giulia 20.08.2018 - 16:17:

Buonasera, sono al secondo giro per gli aumenti raglan, nelle maniche devo ripetere A1+A2 o A1 una volta e A2 fino a che ci sono maglie prima degli aumenti? Grazie

DROPS Design 21.08.2018 kl. 09:04:

Buongiorno Giulia. Prosegue con i diagrammi A1 e A2 come impostato. Quando ci sono sufficienti nuove maglie, incorpora queste maglie nei diagrammi ponendo attenzione che il motivo prosegua correttamente. Buon lavoro!

Ina Boje 08.03.2018 - 16:14:

Hallo! Ich bin gerade angefangen, die Zunahmen für die Arme zu arbeiten, jetzt stellt sich mir die Frage: Was mache ich, wenn A1/A2 mit einem Umschlag beginnt/endet, aber zum Zunehmen der Maschen ebenfalls ein Umschlag gemacht werden soll? Viele Grüße, Ina Boje

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 08:39:

Liebe Frau Boje, die Zunahmen stricken Sie glatt, bis es genügend Maschen um einen kompletten Rapport zu stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susanne Bundgaard 29.01.2018 - 20:27:

Når man på hver anden pind starter mønstret med A1, og dernæst A2 fremkommer flg. mønster: 3 ret, 3 ret, hulmønster. Næste gang: hulmønster, hulmønster, 3 ret. Og IKKE hulmønster, 3 ret, hulmønster, 3 ret osv. Hvad gør jeg galt?

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 16:08:

Hej Susanne, jo A.1 strikker du kun i kanten. Du har 6 masker i rapporten og har altid 3 masker imellem hulmönsteret, men du skal sörge for at du strikker hulmönsteret forskudt. God fornöjelse!

Susanne Bundgaard 29.01.2018 - 20:22:

Jeg strikker str. M, men har lidt problemer med mønstret og maskeantallet. 1. pind i mønstret A1(3 m) + A2 (12 m). 2. pind i mønstret ret. 3. pind i mønstret A1(1m løs af, strik 2 m ret sammen, løft den løse m over) ELLER skal man her starte med at slå om?
