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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Pattern is worked in stocking st.
The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. NOTE: When diagram is worked back and forth, work as follows: If the strand to be worked with is in the wrong side of piece, move sts back and work 2 rows from the same side or cut the yarn if needed.

RAGLAN:
Inc differently on sleeves and body. Inc by making YO. K YO TWISTED in pattern, they should NOT make holes – READ KNITTING TIP!
BODY:
Inc with 1 YO on each side of 1st and 4th marker (which is in st) as follows: Inc every round 6-12-10-22-18-32 times in total and inc on every other round a total of 28-28-30-28-34-30 times (= 34-40-40-50-52-62 times in total).
SLEEVE:
Inc with 1 YO after 2nd and 5th marker and before 3rd and 6th marker (that are between sts) as follows:
Inc every round 0-4-6-4-0-0 times in total and inc on every other round a total of 31-32-32-37-43-46 times (= 31-36-38-41-43-46 times in total).

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st on each side of each marker as follows: Work until 3 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is in the middle of these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec = 4 sts dec in total).

Dec 2 st on each side of each marker as follows: Work until 5 sts remain before marker, * K 2 tog * repeat from *-* 2 times in total (= 2 sts dec), K 2 (marker is in the middle of these sts), * slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total (= 4 sts dec = 8 sts dec in total).

KNITTING TIP:
Work YO with same colour as last/first st before/after YO.

CAST-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked top down in the round on circular needle. Cast on 124-124-132-132-148-148 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with old pink. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST – see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME on 3rd and 5th round (round with K) inc 12-12-20-20-24-24 sts evenly on each of the rounds (= 24-24-40-40-48-48 sts inc in total) = 148-148-172-172-196-196 sts. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm.

Work next round as follows: On this round insert 4 markers between sts in piece and 2 marker in st (= 6 markers in total).
Back piece:
Work A.1 over the first 30-30-36-36-42-42 sts (= 5-5-6-6-7-7 times in width), insert 1st marker in next st and work st as A.2 (= mid back), work A.3 over the next 30-30-36-36-42-42 sts (= 5-5-6-6-7-7 times in width), insert 2nd marker.
Right sleeve:
Work A.3 over the next 12 sts (= 2 times in width), A.4 over next st (this is done so that the pattern is the same in both sides of sleeve), insert 3rd marker.
Front piece:
Work A.1 over the first 30-30-36-36-42-42 sts (= 5-5-6-6-7-7 times in width), insert 4th marker in next st and work st as A.2 (= mid front), work A.3 over the next 30-30-36-36-42-42 sts (= 5-5-6-6-7-7 times in width), insert 5th marker.
Left sleeve:
Work A.3 over the next 12 sts (= 2 times in width), A.4 over next st (this is done so that the pattern is the same in both sides of sleeve), insert 6th marker.

Inc for RAGLAN – see explanation above! Repeat A.1 to A.4 vertically until finished measurements.

REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When inc for raglan is finished, piece measures approx. 20-22-23-25-28-30 cm on the shortest part of piece. There are 64-70-76-86-94-104 sts on each side of 1st and 4th marker on body (= 129-141-153-173-189-209 sts in total on each front piece and back piece) and 75-85-89-95-99-105 sts on each of the sleeves = 408-452-484-536-576-628 sts in total.

On next round, work as follows:
K the first 2 sts tog (= 1 st dec), work pattern as before until 1st marker, 1 YO, work sts with marker as before (= mid back), 1 YO (= 2 sts inc), work pattern as before until 2 sts remain before 2nd marker, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), slip the next 75-85-89-95-99-105 sts (sts between 2nd and 3rd marker) on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-12-12-12-16 sts under sleeve with the same colour as last st was worked with, (insert 1 marker between in the middle of the new sts), K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), work until st with 4th marker, 1 YO, work st with marker as before (= mid front), 1 YO (= 2 sts inc), work pattern as before until 2 sts remain before 5th marker, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), slip the next 75-85-89-95-99-105 sts (sts between 5th and 6th marker) on a stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-12-12-12-16 sts under sleeve with the same colour as last st was worked with, (insert 1 marker in the middle between the new sts) = 274-298-330-370-402-450 sts.

BODY:
Displace round so that it beg mid under sleeve (i.e. move the next sts over on left needle without working them, until marker under right sleeve.).

Insert 1 marker thread in piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Leave marker thread in piece. Move the markers upwards when working. Continue pattern as before. K YOs twisted in pattern, they should NOT make holes.

Work the new sts under sleeve in pattern, adjust so that pattern is mirrored under sleeve (i.e. on each side of marker). On every other round inc 1 st on each side of sts mid front and mid back (i.e. st with 1st and 4th marker) and dec 1 st on each side of marker under each sleeve – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec and 4 sts inc every other round). The same no of sts will remain on needle, inc mid front and mid back and dec in the sides.

When piece measures 3 cm from marker thread under sleeve, adjust so that next round is 1 inc/dec round. Work pattern and inc as before but now dec 2 sts on each side of each marker under sleeve (instead of 1 st) on next round. I.e. dec 8 sts in total and inc 4 sts in total (= 2 sts dec at each marker = 4 sts dec in total on round). Dec like this every 2½-7-6-1½-2-2 cm 4-2-2-6-4-4 times in total = 258-290-322-346-386-434 sts. Work the remaining rounds as before, i.e. dec and inc 4 sts on every other round.

Continue like this until piece measures 46-50-50-54-58-63 cm measured along mid st (i.e. st at 1st or 4th marker). Piece measures approx. 56-60-61-65-69-74 cm measured from the shoulder on the longest.

Adjust so that next round is 1 inc/dec round. Cut the yarn. Slip the first 65-73-81-87-97-109 sts (= half back piece, incl st with 1st marker) on a stitch holder, and slip the last 64-72-80-86-96-108 sts on a stitch holder (= half front piece). Now work over the remaining 129-145-161-173-193-217 sts on needle (i.e. from st after 1st marker towards and incl st with 4th marker = right side of jumper, from mid back to mid front).

Now work back and forth as follows:
Continue with pattern as before until finished measurements.
Row 1 (= RS): Cast off the first 2 sts, work pattern as before until 3 sts remain before marker under sleeve, dec 1 st on each side of marker as before (= 2 sts dec), work pattern the rest of row as before = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid back and 2 sts dec in the side on garment (= 4 sts cast off/dec in total).
Row 2 (= WS): Cast off the first 2 sts, work pattern the rest of row as before = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid front.
Row 3 (= RS): Cast off the first 2 sts, work pattern the rest of row as before = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid back.
Row 4 (= WS): Work as 2nd row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid front.
Row 5 (= RS): Work as 3rd row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid back.
Row 6 (= WS): Work as 2nd row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid front.
Row 7 (= RS): Work as 1st row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid back and 2 sts dec in the side on garment (= 4 sts cast off/dec in total).
Row 8 (= WS): Work as 2nd row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid front.
Row 9 (= RS): Work as 3rd row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid back.
Row 10 (= WS): Work as 2nd row = 2 sts cast off at beg of row towards mid front.

Repeat 1st to 10th row until 5 sts remain on needle. Cast off. Slip sts from stitch holder back on needle and work the same way (= left side of jumper, from mid front towards mid back).

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Distribute sts from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm = 75-85-89-95-99-105 sts. Pick up 8-8-12-12-12-16 sts in the sts cast on under sleeve on body = 83-93-101-107-111-121 sts. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the new sts. Continue with pattern as before, i.e. mirror the pattern at marker. Insert 1 marker thread in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Leave marker thread in piece. Move the markers upwards when working. When piece measures 3 cm, dec 1 st on each side of marker (= 2 sts dec). Dec like this every 1 cm 8-8-8-8-12-25 times in total = 67-77-85-91-87-71 sts. Then every 3½-2-1½-1½-1½-1½ cm 8-12-15-17-13-4 times in total = 51-53-55-57-61-63 sts. When piece measures 45-44-43-42-39-38 cm, switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Work 3 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above, with old pink. Cast off. Piece measures approx. 46-45-44-43-40-39 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

EDGE AT THE BOTTOM:
Knit up sts for an edge inside 1 st along the entire bottom edge of jumper. Knit up approx. 240-260-290-332-364-406 sts evenly distributed with old pink from RS on circular needle size 2.5 mm. Make sure that the edge is not too tight on body. If it does pick up more sts. Work 3 ridges in the round. Cast off with circular needle size 3 mm – READ CAST-OFF TIP.

Bonjour Vous serait-il possible de modifier les explications pour que je puisse tricoter ce modèle de BAS en HAUT MERCI

DROPS Design 14.06.2018 kl. 08:30:

Bonjour Mme Lacomblez, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande individuelle. Pour toute assistance personnalisée, vous pouvez volontiers contacter le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine. Bon tricot!

Nicola 31.12.2017 - 12:35:

Eine Rückfrage zur Anleitung: Die Anleitung erwähnt zunächst nur die Raglanzunahmen. Stimmt es wirklich, dass erst danach mit den Abnahmen in der Mitte des Vorder- und Rückenteils begonnen wird? Damit die optische Diagonale erreicht wird müsste doch sofort mit den Abnahmen begonnen werden? Ich fände es hilfreich, wenn noch in einem Satz darauf hingewiesen würde, wann die ABNAHME tatsächlich beginnt. DANKE!

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 11:14:

Liebe Nicola, die Raglanzunahme bei Vorder- und Rückenteil werden in der Mitte Vorder- und Rückenteil gestrickt, dh beidseitig der 1. und der 4. Markierer. Die Raglanzunahmen bei den Ärmeln werden nach den 2./vor den 3. + nach den 5./vor den 6. Markierer gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Leena Mannsåker 10.04.2017 - 14:23:

Jeg forstår ikke meningen med denne setningen: "Kastet kastes med samme farge som siste/første m før/etter kastet". På en pinne med kun en farge er det jo naturlig å kaste med pinnens farge, mens der hvor det er to farger, er det naturlig å følge mønsteret med kastet, eller? Hva er det jeg misforstår?

Mieke Baras 05.10.2016 - 20:10:

Bij het heen en weer breien wordt ook niet duidelijk gezegd dat je de minderingen en meerderingen (via omslagen) moet verder zetten. Breien in patroon zoals voorheen, is wel erg bondig gezegd! Maar goed, ik ben er achter gekomen dat ik de 10nld in totaal 7x moet breien. Ik heb de Engelse, Duitse en Franse vertaling moeten lezen vooraleer ik het doorhad

Mieke Baras 05.10.2016 - 20:06:

Hallo, ik ben gelukkig een ervaren breister, maar ik wil toch echt mijn beklag doen over de erg gebrekkige uitleg! Je moet het werk meten vanaf de extra steken voor de mouw, maar dat is enkel voor de minderingen! Daarna spreekt men over 50cm, maar dat geldt dan weer voor de TOTALE lengte van het werk!

Mieke Baras 03.10.2016 - 11:32:

Bij het heen en weer breien moet je op de nlden aan de goede kant in totaal 3st minderen ( = 2st afkanten, 1st aan elke kant vd markeerder, 1st meerderen voor 4de markeerder). Klopt dat ? Ik zou dan de 10nld in totaal 5x moeten breien en een 6de keer tot en met nld 6 om 5st over te houden. Klopt dat?

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 15:04:

Hoi Mieke. Waar ben je nu in het patroon? Bvd.

Mieke Baras 03.10.2016 - 11:32:

Ik ben het lijf aan het breien, maar weet niet goed vanaf waar in het breiwerk ik de 50 cm moet meten, dus de plaats waar de 2 helften apart gebreid moeten worden. Ik veronderstel dat het is vanaf de steken die bijgezet werden voor de mouwen ? Klopt dat ?

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 15:02:

Hoi Mieke. Er staat aan het begin van LIJF: Plaats 1 markeerdraad in het werk. MEET NU HET WERK VANAF HIER! (na het verplaatsen van het begin van de nld. Dwz, je plaatst je markeerder waar het nieuwe begin van de nld is en meet vanaf hier.

Kerry 18.09.2016 - 22:39:

On the sleeve increase the instructions says to insert marker in between stitches so surely yarn on needle before or after marker amounts to the same thing?

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 10:09:

Dear Kerry, add a marker between the new sts picked up, and work pattern as before, diagram will not fit in the round due to the number of sts so adjust next rounds so that diagram will be lined up over sts on needle. Happy knitting!

Cornelia Hütt-Fischer 12.08.2016 - 12:51:

In dieser sehr schönen Anleitung wird die Farbe altrosa 3800 verwendet. Leider existiert diese nicht bei den bisherigen Farben. Ist das ein Fehler oder eine neue Farbe? LG Conny

DROPS Design 17.08.2016 kl. 14:14:

Liebe Cornelia, diese Farbe ist im Sortiment und Sie finden sie auf der Farbkarte.

Carola Eriksson 29.06.2016 - 21:01:
