RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase every 2nd round as follows:
Increase as follows before the marker thread:
Start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, marker thread.
Increase as follows, after the marker thread: Marker thread, knit 1, make 1 yarn over.
On the next round work the yarn overs knit, there will be holes.

Increase every 4th round as follows:
Increase as follows before the marker thread:
ROUND 1: Start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit1, marker thread.
ROUND 2: The yarn overs are worked knit, there will be holes.
ROUND 3: Start 3 stitches before the marker thread: Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over, knit1, marker thread. No increases, but the row of holes continues as before.
ROUND 4: The yarn overs are worked knit, there will be holes.

Increase as follows, after the marker thread:
ROUND 1: Marker thread, knit 1, make 1 yarn over.
ROUND 2: The yarn overs are worked knit, there will be holes.
ROUND 3: Marker thread, knit 1, make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. No increases, but the row of holes is continued as before.
ROUND 4: Work the yarn overs knit, there will be holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread: Knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch = 2 stitches decreased.

INCREASE TIP:
Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches) and make 1 yarn over. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted knit to prevent holes (the increased stitches are worked in stocking stitch).
---------------------------------------------------------

TOP: 
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 80-84-88-92-96-100 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Muskat. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, on the last round of the ridges increase 20 stitches evenly along the round = 100-104-108-112-116-120 stitches. Insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows: first marker thread after 19-20-21-22-23-24 stitches (= half the back piece), second marker thread after 12 new stitches (= sleeve), third marker thread after 38-40-42-44-46-48 new stitches (= front piece), fourth marker thread after 12 new stitches (= sleeve), there are 19-20-21-22-23-24 stitches left on the needle after the last marker thread (= half the back piece). Begin with the increases to RAGLAN as described above and work stocking stitch across the stitches on the back piece and front piece and A.1 across all the sleeve stitches. READ THIS WHOLE SECTION BEFORE WORKING! The increases are different on the front piece/back piece and the sleeves as follows:

FRONT PIECE/BACK PIECE:
Increase every 2nd round 12-15-17-25-30-35 times, then every 4th round 7-7-7-4-3-2 times.

SLEEVES:
Increase every 2nd round 18-23-27-29-26-25 times, then every 4th round 4-3-2-2-5-7 times.

When A.1 has been completed 1 time in height, repeat A.2 in height. The increased stitches on the sleeves are worked in to the pattern as you go. After the next to last increase on the sleeve (there are 4 rounds left), continue by working garter stitch across the stitches on each sleeve, the stitches on the front piece/back piece are continued in stocking stitch as before. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! After all the increases to raglan there are 264-296-320-352-372-396 stitches on the needle. The next round is worked as follows: Work 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches (= half the back piece), cast off the next 56-64-70-74-74-76 stitches, work the next 76-84-90-102-112-122 stitches (= front piece), cast off the next 56-64-70-74-74-76 stitches, work the next 38-42-45-51-56-61 stitches (= half the back piece).

BODY:
Continue working as follows: work half the back piece, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches, work the front piece, cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches, work half the back piece. There are now 168-184-200-224-248-272 stitches on the body. Insert a marker thread in each side, in the middle of the new stitches which were cast on. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE. Continue with stocking stitch, but across the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches in each side work 2 ridges, then work stocking stitch across all stitches. When the piece measures 4 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased), decrease every 3 cm in total 4 times – READ DECREASE TIP = 152-168-184-208-232-256 stitches. When the piece measures 19-19-19-18-18-19 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads (= 4 stitches increased), increase every 2 cm in total 6 times– READ INCREASE TIP = 176-192-208-232-256-280 stitches. When the piece measures 32-32-32-33-33-32 cm work A.3 across all stitches. Then cast off in knit, the piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from the shoulder.

Hei. Denne toppen er veldig søt. Har lest gjennom oppskriften og kommentarfeltene. Jeg sliter med beskrivelsen av «øk på hver 2 omg 12-15-17 osv ganger» har vurdert om det er antal masker, men da blir antallet for mange totalt. Kan dere vennligst utdype.

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 07:26:

Hei Charlotte, Du øker til raglan som beskrevet på toppen av oppskriften; Det økes forskjellige antall ganger på ermene og på for/bak-stykkene som beskrevet. Du øker på begge sider av hvert merketråd slik at det blir 4 masker økt på ermene og 4 masker økt på for/bak-stykkene hver øke-omgang. Håper dette hjelper og god fornøyelse!

Miriam 28.06.2019 - 21:06:

Grazie mille della risposta. Ora mi è chiaro come procedere

Miriam 27.06.2019 - 18:49:

Buonasera Drops, sono arrivata alla fine del diagramma A2: se ho capito bene devo lavorare 2maglie insieme a dir, 1 dir, 1 gettato, 1 dir, 2 maglie insieme a dir, 1 dir, 1 gettato , 1 dir,2 maglie insieme a dir ecc. ecc. . E' corretto ? grazie

DROPS Design 27.06.2019 kl. 20:11:

Buongiorno Miriam. La riga da lei indicata si lavora: 2 maglie insieme a diritto, 1 maglia gettata, 2 m insieme a diritto, 1 maglia gettata e così via. Ci permettiamo di ricordarle che i diagrammi si leggono dal basso verso l’alto e da destra verso sinistra . Alla seguente pagina trova indicazioni utili per la lettura dei diagrammi. Buon lavoro!

Noralie 10.06.2019 - 02:04:

I am an experienced knitter and have been knitting for more than 50 years. I've knit cardigans, pullovers, hats, mitten, jackets, cowls, shawls and oodles of baby clothes. I've even won awards for my knitting. And I CANNOT follow this pattern! Grr.

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 13:17:

Dear Noralie, would you like to tell us which part you don't understand so that we can help further? Happy knitting!

Ivy 08.05.2019 - 14:44:

The part where it talks about increasing every four rounds and gives a line by line instruction - when does that take place? Also, when I change from every two to every four increases, the yarnover holes won’t be the same on the sleeves and body. Correct?

DROPS Design 08.05.2019 kl. 15:20:

Dear Ivy, right, to avoid this, increase as explained under RAGLAN/Increase every 4th round as follows: + Increase as follows, after the marker thread. Happy knitting!

Ivy 08.05.2019 - 13:38:

I made my increases before and after each marker at the sleeve edges every even row 15 times (medium), ending with row 8. Now I’m on row 1. I’m supposed to follow the 4 line increase for the body while still increasing the sleeves every other row. What do you even mean by front/back? Does that mean on the body side of the markers? If so, the instructions have me doing work on both sides of the marker, which means the body and the sleeve. Also row 8 had a YO, so how can row 1 as well?

DROPS Design 08.05.2019 kl. 14:25:

Dear Ivy, after you have increased 8 sts every other round a total of 15 times (size M), continue increasing 8 more times every other round on sleeves + 3 more times every 4th round (after the marker at beg of sleeve + before the marker at the end of sleeve) and increase at the same time on body 7 times every 4th round (= at the beg of the front/back piece + at the end of front/back piece). Happy knitting!

Clairveaux 05.05.2019 - 17:39:

Hallihallo, ich habe eine Frage zu den Zu- bzw. Abnahmen. Die Raglanzunahmen in jeder 2. Runde sind klar. Allerdings irritiert mich die folgende Formulierung: “In jeder 4. Runde wie folgt zunehmen: Vor dem Markierungsfaden: 1. RUNDE: 1 Masche vor dem Markierungsfaden beginnen: 1 Umschlag arbeiten, 1 Masche rechts, Markierungsfaden. etc.“ Ist die vierte Runde nun die erste Runde der unter diesem Abschnitt folgenden Erklärung? Besten Dank!

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 10:06:

Liebe Frau Clairveaux, wenn Sie dann in jeder 4. Runde für die Raglanzunehmen, sollen Sie diese Runde zunehmen, um die Löcherreihen an der Raglanline weiter zu stricken - die Zunahmen entstehen dann bei der 1. der 4 Reihen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Linda 10.04.2019 - 23:30:

I have 3 skeins of 30% nylon, 27%cotton, 24% acrylic, 10%silk, and 9% linen 3.5 oz. 100 g each, 432 yards each. I would make this in a large. Should I ave enough? and is there a charge for this pattern? Also at a different time, would this be easy to extend the sleeves to 3/4 or just above the elbow? Beautiful pattern. Thanks

DROPS Design 11.04.2019 kl. 06:43:

Dear Linda, the pattern is free. For any personal assistance regarding the use of your own yarn, you can contact your favorite DROPS store and there you'll find all the help you need. Happy crafting!

Margit 28.03.2019 - 13:38:

Wenn ich in der Lochmusterreihe an beiden Seiten des Ärmels einen Umschlag mache, nehme ich automatisch eine Masche zu. Lasse ich einen Umschlag weg, sieht das Muster asymmetrisch aus. Wie stricke ich diese Reihe richtig?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 09:48:

Liebe Margit, wenn Sie A.1 über die Ärmel stricken, nehmen Sie in A.1 keine Masche (= jeder Umschlag wird mit einer Abnahme ausgeglichen). Die Raglanzunahmen stricken Sie bei den Ärmeln nach der ersten Masche am Anfang Ärmel + vor der letzten Maschen am Ende Ärmel - siehe RAGLANZUNAHMEN. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Teresa 25.02.2019 - 18:20:

Hello, I am making size L and have a question regarding stitch counts. Once the 10 stitches are cast on for each armhole, the pattern states the stitch count should be 200. Then 4 stitches are decreased at 4 cm (one time), and then 4 stitches decreased every 3 cm (four times). Should the new stitch count be 180 for size L rather than 184 as stated in pattern? In other words, 4 stitches decreased a total of 5 times, for 20 stitches decreased?

DROPS Design 26.02.2019 kl. 10:27:

Dear Teresa, you decrease the 4 sts on the sides a total of 4 times, so that you get 200 sts =- 16 sts = 184 sts. Happy knitting!
