Inc 1 st on each side of every marker as follows: Work until 1 st remains before marker, make 1 YO, K 2 sts (marker is between these 2 sts), make 1 YO. On next round K YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to legs):
Dec on each side of marker as follows:
Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: K 2 twisted tog (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front).

Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Cast on 144-168-192-216 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Merino Extra Fine. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid back) and 1 marker after 72-84-96-108 sts (= mid front). Work rib = K 1/P 2 over all sts for 4 cm / 1½''. Then work an elevation at the back as follows (still in rib): Work 9 sts in rib, turn, tighten yarn, work 17 sts in rib on return, turn, tighten yarn, work 26 sts in rib. Continue like this by working 9 sts more on every turn until a total of 107-125-143-161 sts have been worked. Turn one last time to get on RS of piece. Work until marker mid back = beg of round.
Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Continue working in the round over all sts as follows: 21-27-33-39 sts in stockinette st, 31 sts in rib as before, 41-53-65-77 sts in stockinette st, 31 sts in rib as before and 20-26-32-38 sts in stockinette st.
When piece measures 14-14-13-16 cm / 5½"-5½"-5"-6 1/4'' mid front, inc 2 sts front and back – READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc on every 6th round a total of 7-8-10-9 times = 172-200-232-252 sts – work the inc sts in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 29-31-34-36 cm / 8 1/4"-12 1/4"-13½"-14 1/4'' mid front, bind off the first 6-7-8-8 sts after marker mid back, work the next 74-86-100-110 sts and slip them on 1 stitch holder (= leg), work the next 12-14-16-16 sts and keep them on the needle (= gusset), work the next 74-86-100-110 sts and slip them on 1 stitch holder (= leg), bind off the remaining 6-7-8-8 sts, cut the yarn. Then work 11-12-13-14 cm / 4½"-4 3/4"-5"-5½" in stockinette st back and forth over the 12-14-16-16 sts on needle, bind off and sew gusset to the 12-14-16-16 sts bind off mid back.

Slip the 74-86-100-110 sts from stitch holder in the right side on a short circular needle size 4 mm / US 6, knit in addition up 25-26-28-31 sts along one side of the gusset = 99-112-128-141 sts. Insert 1 marker on the inside of leg (i.e. in the middle of the sts knitted up along gusset) = beg of round. Then work rib over the 31 sts in the side as before, work the remaining sts in stockinette st. When leg measures 4 cm / 1½'', dec 1 st on each side of marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 3-1½-1-1 cm / 1"-½"-1/4"-1/4'' a total of 6-11-16-18 times = 87-90-96-105 sts (switch to double pointed needles when needed). Continue to work until leg measures approx. 21-22-23-24 cm / 8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9"-9½''. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5, now work rib K 1/P 2 over all sts (continue with K over K and P over P in the side). Work rib for 4 cm / 1½'', then bind off with K over K and P over P.

Slip sts from the other stitch holder back on needle and work as on first leg.

"När arb mäter 14-14-13-16 cm mitt fram ökas det 2 m fram och bak" är det inklusive "Sticka resår 1 rm, 2 am över alla m i 4 cm"?

Hei Agneta. Du måler fra oppleggskanten så lenge det ikke står at du skal måle annerledes, så vrangborden er inkludert i de 14-14-13-16 cm. God fornøyelse

Ist es möglich, für dieses Modell noch ein Schnitt-Schema mit den Maßen zu veröffentlichen? Oder vielleicht für die Shorts aus der neuen Kollektion? Danke

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 13:28:

Liebe Elisabeth, für dieses Modell können wir leider keine Schnitt-Schema veröffentlichen, jedoch finden Sie passenden Umfang in jeder Größe unter Tab "Material". Ihre Anfrage wird unserem Design Team weitergeleitet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Har stickat ett par "mamelucker" efter den här beskrivningen. Beskrivningen är lätt att följa. Jag gjorde dock några små avsteg: använde Drops Cotton Merino istället, gjorde extra elastisk uppläggning avmaskade med en picotkant. Detta kan du se och läsa om i min blogg.

Hurray! Warm woolies for under winter skirts! I've been looking for a pattern to show me how to make some bloomers that are nicely fitted at the top. These could be lengthened to make a pair of winter leggings, or perhaps widened in the legs for a nice pair of flowing linen wide-leg pants. Add a ruffle to make them into bloomers? I'd have to see the pattern, but I'm grooving on the idea of knitted pants lately...
