GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge= knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 272 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 34) = 8. I.e. in this example knit approx. every 7th and 8th stitch together.

RAGLAN:
Decrease as follows: Begin 3 stitches before marker thread: Knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 8 stitches decreased on round).
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Work sleeve edges in the round on double pointed needles.

Cast on 336-336-378-420-462-504 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with Muskat. Work A.1 (= 21 stitches) 16-16-18-20-22-24 times in total on round. When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, 272-272-306-340-374-408 stitches remain on needle. Knit 1 round while decreasing 34 stitches evenly - READ DECREASE TIP (evenly) = 238-238-272-306-340-374 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Then work A.2 (= 34 stitches) 7-7-8-9-10-11 times. Continue this pattern and decrease as shown in diagrams. When entire A.2 has been worked vertically, 182-182-208-234-260-286 stitches remain on needle. Knit 1 row from right side while adjusting number of stitches to 168-184-200-220-248-272 (i.e. in size M increase 2 stitches. In size S, L, XL, XXL and XXXL decrease 14-8-14-12-14 stitches evenly). Continue in stocking stitch. When piece measures 34-34-35-35-35-35 cm, work next round as follows: Work the first 38-42-45-50-56-61 stitches (= ½ back piece), cast off the next 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches for armhole, work the next 76-84-90-100-112-122 stitches (= front piece), cast off the next 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches, work the remaining 38-42-45-50-56-61 stitches (= ½ back piece). Put piece aside and work the sleeve edges.

SLEEVE EDGES:
Work sleeve edges in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 68-76-84-88-92-98 stitches on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Muskat. Work A.3 in the round. When A.3 has been vertically, work next round as follows: Cast off the first 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches (= under sleeves), knit the remaining stitches and decrease 1-0-0-0-0-1 stitch evenly = 59-68-74-78-80-83 stitches. Put piece aside and work another sleeve edge the same way.

YOKE:
Slip sleeve edges on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off = 270-304-328-356-384-410 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in all transitions between sleeves and body piece (= 4 marker threads). Continue in stocking stitch, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round, begin to decrease for RAGLAN – see explanation above! Decrease like this every other round 21-23-25-28-30-33 times in total = 102-120-128-132-144-146 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work A.3. On round marked with arrow in diagram decrease 2-14-18-16-24-20 stitches evenly = 100-106-110-116-120-126 stitches. Cast off when A.3 has been worked one time vertically.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew together holes under the sleeves. Fasten off.

Liebe Frau Krines, hier finden Sie Erklärungen, um eine Anleitung in Hin- und Rück-R anzupassen. Beachten Sie, daß es manchmal einfacher in Runden zu stricken. Schauen Sie unser Videos um zu lernen, wie man in Runden strickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Klopt het dat in patroon A1 de omslagen en het samen breien aan de binnenzijde van het vest worden uitgevoerd?

Susanne 13.04.2018 - 22:53:

Skal jeg rykke den første maske 1 gang mod højre på række 15 i A2? Altså så omgangen forskydes med en maske. Og skal jeg så rykke tilbage på række 16? Er lidt forvirret..

DROPS Design 24.04.2018 kl. 12:03:

Hei Susanne. På den 15 omgangen begynner mønsteret på slutten av omgang 14. Før den siste masken på 14 omgang lager du et kast, så tar du den siste masken løst av, og strikker de 2 første maskene av omgang 15 rett sammen, før du trekker den siste masken på 14 omgang over og lager et kast. Det samme gjelder på omgang 51. God fornøyelse

Hvordan kan det være at der er så stor forskel på overviden mellem str XL og XXL (14 cm) men kun 8 cm i mellem de andre str. For mit vedkommende er XL for lille og XXL for stor. Hvad kan jeg gøre ?

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 15:59:

Hej Laila, det er for at rapporterne skal gå op, jeg vill välge den större störrelse. God fornöjelse!

Patricia 01.01.2018 - 09:03:

Can you advise on which cotton yarn won't stretch over time, as I know cotton yarns often do. I would like to knit this top longer and I don't want it to stretch. I thought perhaps the Drops Cotton Light yarn might work better. Thank you.

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 11:27:

Dear Patricia, you are welcome to work first a swatch, wash and block it and then choose the one you rather want to use. Your DROPS store will provide you any further individual assistance choosing your yarn. Happy knitting!

Helene Dion 28.07.2017 - 10:31:

Bonjour j'aimerais savoir combien de laine je vais avoir besoin pour faire le model en grandeur large s.v.p Merci

DROPS Design 28.07.2017 kl. 10:48:

Bonjour Mme Dion, vous trouverez la quantité totale pour chaque taille, au poids, sous l'onglet "Fournitures", soit en taille L: 450 g DROPS Muskat / 50 g la pelote = 9 pelotes. Bon tricot!

Lena Jensen 23.06.2017 - 19:12:

Flere i min strikkegruppe og jeg selv kan ikke forstå at denne model er så stor.godt nok er det en swing mere alle synes den bliver kæmpe stor...og flere har opgivet at lave den.. synd for modellen er rigtig fin...har i noget svar på dette

DROPS Design 05.07.2017 kl. 08:39:

Jo men det er bølgekanten som er strikket som en flæse nederst, hvis i vil have flæse effekten, så skal i følge opskriften. Hvis man overholder strikkefastheden ifølge opskriften, så bliver målene som i måleskitsen nederst i opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Lena Jensen 21.06.2017 - 19:50:

Flere i min strikkegruppe klager over den er meget stor forneden.. hvad jeg også selv har erfaret... måtte træle op og begynder nu forfra... måske skal der reguleres lidt opskriften...det er jo en meget sød model som flere opgiver på grund af størrelsen forneden bliver alt for voldsom.venlig hilsen Lena Jensen

Victorine 13.06.2017 - 09:53:

Bonjour et merci beaucoup pour cette réponse rapide. En reprenant tranquillement le calcul avec votre confirmation cela me parait limpide, d'autant plus que c'est ce que j'ai fait, lol ! Je suis bien avancée dans le raglan mais je pense avoir plus de mailles que prévu. Je cherchai désespérément mon erreur !! donc à revoir à tête reposée. Je vous remercie pour vos modèles tous plus inspirants les uns que les autres avec des explications toujours claires. Bonne journée.

Victorine 12.06.2017 - 22:56:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas un détail dans l'explication du raglan : en effet après la description des mailles il est écrit = 8 diminutions. Je n'en trouve que 4, à savoir une avant et une après chaque manche donc X 2. Pouvez vous me dire où est mon erreur ? D'avance merci.

DROPS Design 13.06.2017 kl. 09:04:

Bonjour Victorine, vous diminuez pour le raglan de chaque côté de chaque marqueur - vous placez 4 marqueurs, 1 à chaque transition entre le dos/le devant et la manche quand vous reprenez toutes les mailles ensemble pour l'empiècement. Vous allez ensuite diminuer 1 m avant chaque marqueur + 1 m après chaque marqueur (= soit 2 m par marqueur x 4 marqueurs = 8 diminutions et on diminue 2 m pour le dos, le devant et chaque manche. Bon tricot!
