Knitting tension: 24 stitches x 32 rows with needle size 3 mm and stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm. Remember needle size is only a guide!

Pattern: See diagram - M.1, pattern in diagram is seen from the right side.

Ridge/Garter stitch (worked in the round): 1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

Ridge/Garter stitch (back and forth on needle): 1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

Rib-1: * K2, P4 *, repeat from *-*.
Rib-2: * K2, P2 *, repeat from *-*.

Body: Cast on 252-288-324-360 stitches with circular needle size 2.5 mm and white, work Rib-1 for 2 cm. On the next round work the purl 4 stitches together 2 and 2 on whole round (i.e. all P4 become P2) = 168-192-216-240 stitches on needle. Continue with Rib-2. When piece measures 14-15-16-17 cm change to circular needle size 3 mm and finish working with M.1 - at the same time increase 48-48-48 stitches evenly on round 1 = 216-240-264-288 stitches. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 26-28-29-30 cm work next round as follows: Cast off 4 stitches for armhole, 100-112-124-136 stitches front piece, cast off 8 stitches for armhole, 100-112-124-136 stitches back piece, cast off 4 stitches for armhole. Lay piece to one side and work sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 80-84-88-92 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and white and work Rib-2 for 2 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and finish the piece working M.1 - at the same time increase 0-4-8-4 stitches evenly on round 1 = 80-88-96-96 stitches. Continue with pattern until piece measures 8-8-8-8 cm. Now cast off 8-8-8-8 stitches mid under sleeve = 72-80-88-88 stitches.

Yoke: Place sleeves on same circular needle as body where you cast off stitches for armholes = 344-384-424-448 stitches on needle. Insert 1 marker thread in all transitions between sleeves and body = 4 marker threads. Continue the pattern upwards (make sure the pattern matches on sleeves and body, but in the transitions it will not match) - at the same time decrease to raglan as follows:

Raglan decreases: Read whole section before continuing. Work 4-2-3-3 rounds before starting to decrease. Decrease to raglan on each side of marker threads: 1 stitch x 17-17-16-15 every 2nd round, then: 1 stitch x 0-2-6-8 every round.

Decrease as follows: There are 8 decreases per round - 1 on each side of each marker thread. There are 2 stitches stocking stitch between the decreases (i.e. 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread). Decrease as follows from right side: Before marker thread: Knit 2 together, knit 1.
After marker thread: Knit 1, slip 1 stitch, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over.

After neck decreases decrease from the wrong side:
Before marker thread: Purl 2 twisted together, purl 1.
After marker thread: Purl 1, purl 2 together.

At the same time, when piece measures 32-34-35-38 cm, (measured in length mid front), place the middle 22-24-26-28 stitches on a thread for neck. Continue working back and forth on needle at the same time as you place stitches on thread in each side every 2nd row: 2 stitches x 9. After the last row with raglan decreases, place all stitches back on circular needle = 208-232-248-264 stitches. Work 1 round stocking stitch, then work next round as follows: * Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over *, repeat from *-*. Work 1 round stocking stitch before all stitches are cast off.

Assembly: Crochet with hook size 3 mm and Safran a row of double crochets around the neckline. Then work 1 chain-stitch cord of approx. 150 cm. The cord is thread in the row of holes at top so that the ties are mid front. Sew together the openings under the sleeves.

Hej Lena! Översättningen står precis ovanför rutan med diagrammet. Att mönstret visas från rätsidan gör att man får en uppfattning om hur arbetet ska se ut - jag tror att det skulle vara mycket förvirrande om raderna visades från olika håll!. Är rutan rät från rätan ska den stickas avig från avigan. I detta mönster verkar alla maskor vara aviga på avigvarv. /Lotta

Varför står beskrivningarna för diagrammet inte på svenska då den övriga texten är översatt??? Det står att diagrammet visas från rätsidan, hur stickar man då avigsidan???? Det finns en hel del att jobba på för att era mönster ska vara bra. Tacksam för svar

The translations for the Diagrams for all Garnstudio patterns are included within the text of the Pattern itself. If you look you will find lines starting with an = sign. These are the translations, and they are given in the same vertical order as the chart symbols within the diagram.

DROPS number 65-6 diagram is not in American English. How can I get a translation?
