INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose the diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP (for the side):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread in the side: Knit 2 stitches together, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch, knit 1 stitch, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase as follows mid under sleeve – start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

RAGLAN:
You will decrease 2 stitches in each transition between the body and sleeves. 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.

KNITTING TIP:
If the knitting gauge is not right in height and your work is too tight, the yoke will be too short and the armhole too small. This can be adjusted by working an extra round without decreases regularly between the decreases.


----------------------------------------------------------

BODY:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up.

Cast on 212-228-248-268-292-316 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and Cotton Merino. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Continue by working as follows:
Knit 17-21-20-25-25-31, purl 3, *A.1 (= 18-18-22-22-26-26 stitches), purl 6 *, work from *-* 2 times in total, A.1, purl 3, knit 34-42-40-50-50-62, purl 3, *A.1, purl 6 *, work from *-* 2 times in total, A.1, purl 3, knit 17-21-20-25-25-31. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 after 106-114-124-134-146-158 stitches = in the sides. Continue this pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'' decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads in the sides (= 4 stitches decreased) – READ DECREASE TIP! Decrease every 4½ cm / 1 3/4'' a total of 7 times in all sizes = 184-200-220-240-264-288 stitches.

When the piece measures 39-39-39-39-39-39 cm / 15 1/4'' all sizes bind off 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches in each side (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 stitches on each side of the marker threads). There are now 84-92-100-110-120-130 stitches on the back piece and front piece. Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, change to short circular needle when you have increased enough stitches. Cast on 48-52-56-56-60-64 stitches with double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and Cotton Merino. Knit 1 round, then work rib, knit 2/ purl 2. When the piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'' change to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6. Knit 1 round where you decrease 4-6-8-6-8-10 stitches evenly on round = 44-46-48-50-52-54 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid under the sleeve). Continue with stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 10-7-7-10-7-7 cm / 4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4" increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – READ INCREASE TIP. Increase every 3-2½-2-1½-1½-1½ cm / 1 1/8"-7/8"-3/4"-½"-½"-½" a total of 12-15-18-19-20-21 times = 68-76-84-88-92-96 stitches. When the piece measures 46-45-43-42-40-39 cm / 18"-17 3/4"-17"-16½"-15 3/4"-15 3/4" (shorter measurements in larger sizes because of longer yoke) bind off the middle 8-8-10-10-12-14 stitches under the sleeve = 60-68-74-78-80-82 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work 1 more sleeve.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle as the body where you have bind off stitches for the armholes = 288-320-348-376-400-424 stitches. Insert a marker thread in each transition between the body and the sleeves (= 4 marker threads). Continue with pattern as before and decrease to RAGLAN – see description above.

Decrease every 4th round 5-5-6-6-6-7 times, then every 2nd round 14-16-18-21-23-24 times = a total of 19-21-24-27-29-31 times - the stitches in A.1 that
does not fit in diagram while decreasing should be worked in stockinette.

After all the decreases, there are 136-152-156-160-168-176 stitches on the round. Work 2 ridges over all stitches, but on the first round, knit the 22-26-26-24-22-20 stitches over each sleeve together 2 and 2, in addition decrease 18-28-26-28-34-40 stitches evenly on round = 96-98-104-108-112-116 stitches. Bind off with knit.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

This pattern has been corrected. .

YOKE:...Decrease every 4th round 5-5-6-6-6-7 times, then every 2nd round 14-16-18-21-23-24 times = a total of 19-21-24-27-29-31 times - the stitches in A.1 that does not fit in diagram while decreasing should be worked in stocking stitch...

Sheer elegance - superb! Maximum concentration required, but well worth the effort...

Hi. I made this for my friend. Such a beautiful jumper, appealing design; to flatter any woman. Very difficult, especially as she wanted in in black! Great concentration was required, for it was very easy to make mistakes in the A1 pattern 'blocks'. Thanks. GoldenEagle1620

Nu har jeg strikket de første ti cm og selvom jeg har tjekket, flere gange, om jeg nu har forstået denne enkle opskrift rigtigt, så ligner mit resultat ikke det på billedet. I mit hoved giver det mest mening, hvis man ikke skal strikke det samme mønster hver omgang for at få bladmønstret frem...Men det er sådan, jeg forstår opskriften...Please help. Vh Freja.

Hej Freja, jo du skal vælge diagrammet for din størrelse. Du starter nederst til højre på første pind. Næste pind strikker du vrang tilbage fra vrangen. 3.pind strikker du fra højre mod venstre igen. Sæt gerne en mærketråd på hver side af diagrammet så du får de 2 midterste masker lige over hinanden hele vejen op ifølge diagrammet. God fornøjelse!

Hej, hvor starter omgangen, efter jeg har sat ærmerne ind på pinden sammen med ryg og forstykke?

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 09:03:

Hej Susanne, du har sikkert tråden i en raglan overgang (altså mellem et ærme og enten ryg eller forstykke) her kan du også starte omgangen. God fornøjelse!

YM 01.09.2017 - 01:44:

Bonjour, Je suis rendue à l'empiècement dans cet ouvrage. Avant de commencer les diminutions, j'ai une question. À un moment donné, après les 9 1ère diminutions, la 10e va empiéter sur les A1 de chaque côté, comment continuer ces motifs, est-ce que je les arrête et je tricote à leur place du jersey endroit, ou bien je continue le motif, si oui, comment?

DROPS Design 01.09.2017 kl. 14:53:

Bonjour Mme YM, tricotez en jersey les mailles de A.1 qui ne peuvent plus se tricoter en point fantaisie pendant les diminutions du raglan - une correction a été apportée, merci. Bon tricot!

YM 19.08.2017 - 03:51:

Il me semble que les mots »mailles endroit» manque dans la citation plus bas où j'ai mis des XXX à la place »17-21-20-25-25-31 mailles endroit, 3 mailles envers, *A.1 (= 18-18-22-22-26-26 mailles), 6 mailles envers*, répéter de *-* 2 fois au total, A.1, 3 mailles envers, 34-42-40-50-50-62 XXX, 3 mailles envers, » Est-ce que j'ai raison?

DROPS Design 20.08.2017 kl. 09:50:

Bonjour. Oui, vous avez raison, les mots mailles endroit manquent. Le texte sera corrigé dès que possible. Merci et bon tricot!

Joan Orsi 03.08.2017 - 19:13:

Never mind the previous comment, I missed the in the round part of the instructions.

Joan Orsi 03.08.2017 - 19:12:

In the directions you have: RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round): 1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round. Isn't a garter stitch knitted every row whereas a knit 1 row then purl the next would be stockinette?

DROPS Design 06.08.2017 kl. 10:26:

Dear Joan, the instructions refer to garter stitch (ridges) knitted in the ROUND. If you knit garter stitch that way you need to knit a round of knit stitch followed by a round of purl to get the same ridged effect you get by knitting every row back and forth. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!
