Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

INCREASE TIP:
Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread. Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker is between these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes - work the increased stitches in A.1.

RAGLAN:
Decrease for raglan in every transition between sleeves and body. 
Begin 3 stitches before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on round (e.g. 100 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 19) = 5.3.
In this example knit approx. every 4th and 5th stitch together.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
Worked in the round on circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 156-168-174-186-192-204 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Baby Merino or Safran. Knit 1 round, then work rib as follows: purl 1, * knit 1, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 stitches remain on round, finish with knit 1 and purl 1. Continue rib like this for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work A.1 in the round over all stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 20-23-26-29-32-35 cm, work next round as follows: Cast off 4 stitches for armhole, work 70-76-79-85-88-94 stitches (= front piece), cast off 8 stitches for armhole, work 70-76-79-85-88-94 stitches (= back piece) and cast off the last 4 stitches on needle for armhole. Put piece aside and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
Work in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.
Cast on 42-42-42-48-48-48 stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Baby Merino or Safran. Knit 1 round, then work rib as follows: purl 1, * knit 1, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 stitches remain on round, finish with knit 1 and purl 1. Continue rib like this for 4 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work A.1 in the round over all stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). When piece measures 6 cm, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread - read INCREASE TIP! Repeat increase every 2½-2½-2½-3-3-2½ cm 7-9-10-9-11-13 times in total = 56-60-62-66-70-74 stitches. When piece measures approx. 23-28-31-35-39-42 cm (adjust to finish on same round in A.1 as on body), cast off 8 stitches mid under sleeve (cast off 4 stitches on each side of marker thread) = 48-52-54-58-62-66 stitches. Put piece aside and knit another sleeve.

YOKE:
Slip sleeves on to same circular needle as body where armholes were cast off (without working the stitches first) = 236-256-266-286-300-320 stitches on needle. Insert 1 marker thread in all transitions between sleeves and body piece (= 4 marker threads). 

RAGLAN:
Continue pattern in the round as before. Work in the round over all stitches for 2 cm. On next round decrease for RAGLAN – see explanation above (= 8 stitches decreased). Continue decrease for raglan every other round until decrease has been done 17-19-20-22-24-26 times in total on each side of all marker threads.
After all decreases for raglan there are 100-104-106-110-108-112 stitches on needle and piece measures approx. 36-40-44-48-52-56 cm up to shoulder.

NECK EDGE:
Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH in the round over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on first round in ridge decrease 19-17-13-11-6-7 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP = 81-87-93-99-102-105 stitches. Work rib = knit 1/purl 2 for 3 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Salve, mi blocco non appena arrivo al primo aumento della manica. Se aumento seguando il suggerimento poi mi si scombina tutto il motivo finta costa inglese sotto la manica (dove dicono di mettere il segno). Mi potreste dare una dritta su come fare? Grazie mille, Marina

DROPS Design 21.06.2019 kl. 14:17:

Buongiorno Marina. Per le maglie gettate, al giro successivo le lavora in modo che il motivo prosegua correttamente. Può, se il risultato la soddisfa maggiormente, lavorare a rovescio le 2 maglie che nel suggerimento dice di lavorare a diritto. Buon lavoro!

Jag förstår inte hur man gör mönster A1

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 08:47:

Hej. Hoppas denna video om halvpatent kan hjälpa dig. Lycka till!

Judith Rubio 09.05.2019 - 02:07:

Hola. Quiciera saber si este patro lo puedo hacer con agijas 5 o 6 y si me podrian ayudar con las medidas. De ante ante manos muchas gracias.

Marta Horníková 03.05.2019 - 13:27:

Zdravím, vroubkový vzor se skládal z 1x hladce a 2 obrace. Patent je 1x hluboké hladce a 1x obrace. Tím pádem mi nesedí sloupec s hladkých ok na hladká oka ale kříží se... Neměl by být patent také 1x hladce a 2x obrace...? Děkuji za odpověď.

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 15:32:

Dobrý den, Marto, vroubkový vzor tvoří 1 kruhové řada hladce, druhá kruhová řada obrace. Nejsem si jistá, o které části svetru mluvíte, ale pokud jde o lem průkrčníku, tak ten pleteme pružným vzorem (patentem) ve složení 1 oko hladce, 2 obrace. Takže nejdřív 1 kruhová řada hladce (v ní ujmout potřebný počet ok dle popisu), 2. kruhová řada obrace (= vroubek) a pak střídavě 1 hladce a 2 obrace - vzor si posuneme tak, aby navazoval na předchozí část pleteniny. Hodně zdaru! Hana

Thank you Drops, knitting much faster now that I understand the rib pattern. I was confused because it does say false English rib and those were the videos I had looked at. Now that I see I knot the below stitch AND current knit st I realise I am not dropping at st. 😊 ✅

Gwyneth Worthington 24.03.2019 - 00:07:

Hi Drops, I don’t understand the pattern in Perkins, when it says knit the stitch from previous round then slip stitch off the needle. How do I keep the cord t number of arches if I am dropping stitches. Thanks

DROPS Design 25.03.2019 kl. 11:12:

Dear Mrs Worthington, this video shows how to work the double stitch, working in the K stitch from previous round - remember to follow pattern as in diagram and not as video (= row 1: *P1, K1 below, P1*, repeat from *-*), row 2: *P1,K1,P1*, repeat from *-*). Happy knitting!

Annette Christensen 14.03.2019 - 08:54:

Jeg kan heller ikke få arbejdet til at passe med raglanindt.mangler også 5-6 cm i at arb måler 40 cm til skulder. Min Strikkefasthed i højden er 32 p jeg strikker i drops baby merino fra ærmegab til skulder skal der strikkes 38 rundpinde(19 indt.) Det kan aldrig komme til at passe, når strikkefasthed i højden er 32 p svarer til 10 cm. Er der fejl i opskriften? Mvh Annette

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 15:15:

Hej Annette, hvis du bliver for tidligt færdig med din raglanindtagning, så kan du strikke 1 pind ekstra imellem indtagningerne, eller så er du nødt til at bruge et halvt pindenummer tykkere for at få større masker. God fornøjelse!

Jane 04.02.2019 - 12:23:

Hej. Jeg ved ikke om det er mig der gør noget forkert, for når jeg har taget ind til raglan på hver 2. pind de antal gange der er omtalt i opskriften, mangler der stadig 5-6 cm i at arbejdet måler ca 36-40-44-48-52-56 cm op til skulderen.

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 16:01:

Hej Jane, det er fordi du har en lidt anden strikkefasthed i højden end hvad vi har i opskriften (bruger du muligvis et andet garn?). Du kan let løse det ved at strikke en ekstra pind indimellem uden indtagning. God fornøjelse!

Monti 02.02.2019 - 14:41:

Hej! Finns mönstret för vuxen?

DROPS Design 06.02.2019 kl. 10:11:

Hej, inte exakt, men du kan söka på raglan och patent, så ser du att vi har flera liknande. Lycka till :)

Franciulla 28.01.2019 - 08:59:

Bonjour.Je souhaite réaliser ce modèle en Jersey sachant que la laine et le N d’aiguilles ne changent pas ,est-ce réalisable.Merci pour la réponse

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 12:15:

Bonjour Mme Franciulla, les diminutions du raglan sont calculées sur le point utilisé dans ce modèle et risqueraient de ne pas correspondre au jersey. Pour un pull jersey, regardez plutôt parmi les modèles enfant ou les modèles bébé en fonction de la taille souhaitée. Bon tricot!
