INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the number of stitches increases are done over (e.g. 28 stitches) and divide this number by number of increases to be done (e.g. 3) = 9.3. I.e. in this example increase by making a yarn over after approx. every 9th stitch. On next round knit the yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase for raglan on each side of every repetition A.1 (= 8 increases on round)
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over on each side of A.1. On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
Work until 5 stitches remain before marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 10 (marker thread is in the middle of these 10 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Work top down. Beginning of round is mid back. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 125-125-130-130-140-145 stitches on a short circular needle size 2.5 mm with Flora. Knit 1 round. Then work rib = knit 2/purl 3 until piece measures 3 cm. Knit 1 round while increasing stitches as follows: Knit 28-28-28-28-30-30 while AT THE SAME TIME increasing 1-3-3-3-3-4 stitches evenly over these stitches – read INCREASE TIP (evenly), * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work *-* 6-6-9-9-10-12 times in total, knit 57-57-56-56-60-61 while AT THE SAME TIME increasing 3-3-4-4-4-5 stitches evenly over these stitches, * 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work from *-* 6-6-9-9-10-12 times in total, knit 28-28-28-28-30-30 while AT THE SAME TIME increasing 1-3-3-3-3-4 stitches evenly over these stitches = 142-146-158-158-170-182 stitches. Knit 1 round where all the yarn overs are knitted twisted (to avoid holes). Purl 1 round, knit 1 round and purl 1 round. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Now work pattern as follows: Knit 5-6-9-9-12-15 (= half back piece), A.1 (= 28 stitches), knit 5 (= sleeve), A.1, knit 10-12-18-18-24-30 stitches (= front piece), A.1, knit 5 (= sleeve), A.1, knit 5-6-9-9-12-15 (= half back piece). Continue pattern like this AT THE SAME TIME on next round begin increase for RAGLAN – see explanation above. Increase like this every other round 23-27-29-33-36-38 times in total = 326-362-390-422-458-486 stitches. Work without increase until piece measures 22-25-26-28-30-31 cm from cast-on edge mid back and down!
Now divide piece for body and sleeves. NOTE: Middle of A.1 is not transition between body and sleeves! Continue with A.2 (= 6 stitches) over the first 6 stitches in A.1 and work A.3 (= 6 stitches) over the last 6 stitches in A.1, knit over the middle 16 stitches of A.1.
Work next row as follows: Work 46-50-54-60-66-72 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 71-81-87-91-97-99 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches under sleeve, work the next 92-100-108-120-132-144 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 71-81-97-91-97-99 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches under sleeve, work the remaining 46-50-54-60-66-72 stitches (= half back piece).
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 200-220-240-264-292-320 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast-on under each sleeve in each side (= 4-5-6-6-7-8 new stitches on each side of marker thread) and 100-110-120-132-146-160 stitches between marker threads.
Continue in the round in stocking stitch, A.2 and A.3 as before. When piece measures 4 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread in the side - read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 6th round 10 times in total in all sizes = 240-260-280-304-332-360 stitches. When piece measures 23-22-23-23-23-24 cm, divide the piece for front and back piece as follows:
Work the first 28-33-38-42-48-53 stitches and increase at the same time 9-12-14-18-19-22 stitches evenly, work A.2, work 25-25-25-27-28-30 stitches and increase at the same time 7-7-7-10-9-12 stitches evenly, cast off the next 2 stitches (= vent), work 25-25-25-27-28-30 stitches and increase at the same time 7-7-7-10-9-12 stitches evenly, work A.3, work 56-66-76-84-96-106 stitches and increase 18-23-28-35-38-43 stitches evenly, work A.2, work 25-25-25-27-28-30 stitches and increase at the same time 7-7-7-10-9-12 stitches evenly, cast off the next 2 stitches (= vent), work 25-25-25-27-28-30 stitches and increase at the same time 7-7-7-10-9-12 stitches evenly, work A.3, work the remaining 28-33-38-42-48-53 stitches and increase at the same time 9-11-14-17-19-21 stitches evenly. Cut the yarn. Slip the stitches for back piece on a stitch holder.

RIB FRONT PIECE:
= 150-165-180-205-220-245 stitches. Work rib back and forth. Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work from right side as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, knit 2, * purl 3, knit 2 *, work from *-* until 4 stitches remain on row BUT continue with A.2 and A.3 over cables as before, and finish with 4 stitches in garter stitch. Continue like this back and forth until rib measures 7 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight cast-off edge cast off with a needle in a larger size.

RIB BACK PIECE:
= 150-165-180-205-220-245 stitches. Work as on rib on front piece.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 71-81-87-91-97-99 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 79-91-99-103-111-115 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast-on under sleeve (= 4-5-6-6-7-8 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Beginning of round is mid under sleeve.
Work in stocking stitch in the round but continue with A.2/A.3 over the 2 small cables from raglan line. When sleeve measures 4 cm from division, decrease as follows:
First decrease mid under sleeve:
Work until 5 stitches remain before marker and knit 2 together, knit 6 (marker is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 8th-5th-4th-4th-3rd-3rd round 3-5-7-5-6-6 times in total = 73-81-85-93-99-103 stitches. Then decrease on the opposite side of A.2/A.3 (= on top side of sleeve), i.e. decrease as follows:
Knit 5, work A.3, knit 1, knit 2 together, knit until 3 stitches remain before A.2, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 8th-5th-4th-4th-3rd-3rd round 10-14-15-18-20-21 times in total = 53-53-55-57-59-61 stitches.
Continue with stocking stitch and A.2/A.3 until sleeve measures 38-35-35-33-31-31 cm from division (NOTE: Shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke).
Work next round as follows: Work 5 stitches while increasing 2 stitches evenly, work A.3, work 31-31-33-35-37-39 stitches while increasing 8-8-11-9-7-10 stitches evenly, work A.2, work 5 stitches while increasing 2 stitches evenly = 65-65-70-70-70-75 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Now work rib as follows: Knit 1, purl 3, knit 2, purl 1, A.3, purl 1, * knit 2, purl 3 *, work from *-* 7-7-8-8-8-9 times, knit 2, purl 1, A.2, purl 1, knit 2, purl 3, knit 1. Continue rib in the round like this until rib measures 5 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. To avoid a tight cast-off edge cast off with a needle in a larger size. Sleeve measures approx. 43-40-40-38-36-36 cm from division. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle in front of piece, knit 1, knit 1 from cable needle
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, knit 1, knit 1 from cable needle

Det undrer mig da hele længden skal være 62 cm, at bærestykket er 28 cm, ryg og fortykke 23 cm og rib 7 cm. Det giver 58 cm. Hvor er så de sidste 4 cm. mvh Marianne Steen

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 16:36:

Hej Marianne, det er de sidste 4 cm du får i selv raglanudskäringen. God fornöjelse !

Susanne Schweighofer 10.02.2018 - 15:57:

Hallo, ich habe folgende Frage: Es wird ja Diagramm A mehrmals wiederholt. Wie werden Reihe 11 und 12 gestrickt, es sind ja nur die ersten und letzten 6 Reihen gezeichnet? Wenn ich nach Reihe 10 wieder bei Reihe 1 beginne, stimmt mir das Zopfmuster nicht. Bitte um Info. Danke, lg, Susi

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 08:46:

Liebe Frau Schweighofer, nach den 9. Reihen wiederholen Sie das mittlere Muster von Reihe 1 gleichzeitig die 6 ersten und letzten Maschen in A.1 wie im Diagram stricken, nach der 12. Reihe diese 2 x 6 M von der Reihe 1 wiederholen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Margret Schaloske 09.01.2018 - 17:23:

DROPS Design 10.01.2018 kl. 08:50:

Liebe Frau Schaloske, in der Größe L stricken Sie: 28 Maschen rechts stricken und gleichzeitig 3 Maschen gleichmäßig verteilt zunehmen (28+3=31) – * 1 Umschlag, 1 Masche rechts *, von *-* insgesamt 9 x arbeiten (= 2x9=18) , 56 Maschen rechts stricken und 4 Maschen gleichmäßig verteilt zunehmen (56+4=60), * 1 Umschlag, 1 Masche rechts *, von *-* insgesamt 9 x arbeiten (2x9=18), 28 Maschen rechts und 3 Maschen gleichmäßig verteilt zunehmen (28+3) = 31+18+60+18+31= 158 M.

Hvordan strikkes rad 11 og 12 på A1? Der det er blankt i midten

DROPS Design 12.12.2017 kl. 14:33:

Hei Elin. Da begynner du på rad 1 igjen, mens flettene (der diagrammet går høyeste) i siden strikkes etter diagrammet (2 omganger til før du starter på omgang 1 igjen). Dette er fordi flettene i siden ikke går opp med mønstret i midten i høyden av A.1. God Fornøyelse!

Helle 09.11.2017 - 07:48:

Hei. Det er to blanke ruter i tegnforklaringen, hvor den ene sier 2 r sm, og rett på retten og vrang på vrangen. Regner med at 2 r sm skal ha motsatt strek av løft en strikk en løft første over. :)

Marie 30.10.2017 - 07:48:

Bonjour, et merci pour ce joli modèle. On doit faire des augmentations pour le raglan entre une maille endroit et une maille envers d'un coté et une maille envers et une maille endroit de l'autre. Quels types de jetés doit-on faire pour avoir des jours de la même dimension des deux côtés du raglan ?

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 10:31:

Bonjour Marie, faites le même type de jeté, et essayez de les faire et de les tricoter de la même façon pour qu'ils aient la même taille - après le lavage/blocage, ils devraient ensuite s'égaliser, n'hésitez pas à vérifier sur un échantillon au préalable si besoin. Bon tricot!

Loredana 20.10.2017 - 13:28:

Buongiorno, sono arrivata alla divisione delle maglie tra dietro,davanti e maniche. Le istruzioni dicono di continuare con gli schemi A2 e A3 e a dritto le maglie intermedie (16 ).... le maglie aumentate sotto le maniche vanno lavorate a dritto? Grazie Loredana

DROPS Design 20.10.2017 kl. 13:55:

Buongiorno Loredana. Le maglie aumentate sotto le maniche vanno lavorate a diritto. Buon lavoro!

Loredana 16.10.2017 - 14:12:

Buonasera, ho finito il giro con gli aumenti....vi chiedo nel ferro in cui i gettati vanno lavorati a dritto ritorto per evitare buchi, vanno lavorate allo stesso modo anche le gettate che fanno parte della ripetizione 1gettato 1 dritto? Grazie Loredana

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 14:21:

Buongiorno Loredana. Sì, nel giro successivo a quello con gli aumenti, tutte le maglie gettate (anche quelle delle ripetizioni 1 m dir, 1 gettato) vanno lavorate ritorte. Buon lavoro!

Terri 13.09.2017 - 16:26:

In chart A1, what do you do on lines 11 and 12 when the middle is blank? Is this an error?

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 17:31:

Dear Terri, on row 11, repeat the lace pattern from row 1 = the lace pattern is worked on less row than the small cables on each side. After row 12, repeat the cable pattern from row 1. Happy knitting!
