INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

ELEVATION:
Insert 1 marker thread mid back = the start of the round. Start from the right side and knit 7-8-8-9-9-10 stitches past the marker thread, turn, tighten the strand and purl 14-16-16-18-18-20 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 21-24-24-27-27-30 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 28-32-32-36-36-40 stitches back. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 35-40-40-45-45-50 stitches, turn, tighten strand and purl 42-48-48-54-54-60 stitches back. Turn, tighten strand and knit to mid back.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
All stitches in the pattern are worked in stocking stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back of the piece do not pull. You can work with a larger needle size if this is a problem.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needles (e.g. 80 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 3) = 26.6.
In this example, when decreasing, knit together approximately alternately every 25th and 26th stitch and 26th and 27th stitch.
When increasing make 1 yarn over alternately after every 26th and 27th stitch, on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body):
Increase on each side of the marker thread as follows:
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread and make 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches) and make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Repeat by the other marker thread. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. 

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, marker thread sits here, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The start of the round is mid back. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 80-84-88-92-96-100 stitches with short circular needle size 5 mm and medium grey. Work rib (knit 2 /purl 2) for 4 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 3-4-5-4-5-4 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced) = 77-80-83-88-91-96 stitches.
Change to short circular needle size 5.5 mm. For a better fit, you can now work an ELEVATION – see description above, in the back of the neck.
When the elevation has been completed, knit 1 round where you increase 7-10-13-14-17-18 stitches evenly on round = 84-90-96-102-108-114 stitches.
Continue by working PATTERN - see description above, as follows:
Work and increase according to A.1 (14-15-16-17-18-19 repeats of 6 stitches) - Read KNITTING TIP!
When the whole of A.1 has been completed in height there are 224-240-256-272-288-304 stitches on the round and the piece measures approx. 23-23-23-25-25-25 cm from the cast-on edge. Continue working with medium grey to finished length. Work the different sizes as follows:

SIZE S:
Continue until the piece measures 25 cm from the cast-on edge. Continue with ALL SIZES below.

SIZES M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL:
Increase 6-5-8-8-8 stitches evenly on every 5th-5th-5th-7th-6th round, 1-2-2-2-3 times = 246-266-288-304-328 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 27-28-30-32-34 cm.

ALL SIZES:
Knit 1 round where you increase 12-12-10-10-8-14 stitches evenly on round = 236-258-276-298-312-342 stitches.
The next round is worked as follows: Work the first 35-38-41-45-48-53 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 47-52-56-59-60-64 stitches on a thread (= sleeve) and cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve), work the next 71-77-82-90-96-107 stitches (= front piece), place the next 47-52-56-59-60-64 stitches on a thread (= sleeve) and cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= in the side under the sleeve), work the remaining 36-39-41-45-48-54 stitches (= half back piece). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 154-166-180-196-212-234 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches cast on under the sleeve in each side. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 4 cm from the separation, decrease 2 stitches in each side – read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 9 cm a total of 3 times in all sizes = 142-154-168-184-200-222 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 31-33-32-32-32-32 cm. Work 1 round where you increase 10-12-16-16-20-22 stitches evenly on round = 152-166-184-200-220-244 stitches. Change to circular needle size 5 mm. Work rib (knit 2 /purl 2). When the rib measures 6 cm cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches). The piece measures approx. 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Place the 47-52-56-59-60-64 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 5.5 mm. In addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches which were cast on under the sleeve = 53-58-64-67-70-74 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches. Start the round here and work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 4 cm from the separation decrease 2 stitches under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease in this way every 9th-6th-5th-5th-4th-4th round a total of 9-11-13-13-14-14 times = 35-36-38-41-42-46 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 41-39-39-37-35-35 cm from the separation. Work 1 round where you increase 1-4-2-3-2-2 stitches evenly on round = 36-40-40-44-44-48 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 5 mm. Work rib (knit 2 / purl 2). When the rib measures 6 cm cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches). The sleeve measures approx. 47-45-45-43-41-41 cm from the separation. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Jeg får ikke maskeantallene til å stemme når jeg skal fortsette arbeidet etter fullført a1? Økninger og maskeantall stemmer ikke? (a1 har riktig maskeantall og lengde på arbeid som det står i oppskriften... )

Hei. Tips til korleis eg kan strikke denne med raglan felling? Synes det er enklere og blir finere enn med rundefelling. Har opplevd ved fleire anledninger at rundfellinga ikkje stemmer.

DROPS Design 30.11.2018 kl. 09:59:

Hei John. Dette mønsteret er skrevet for rundfelling, og vi har dessverre ikke mulighet til å skrive den om til raglan. Det er 2 ganske forskjellige måter å øke på så det vil ha stor innvirkning på mønsteret om alle masker økes på samme sted. Om du helst vil strikke raglan har vi andre modeller du kan titte på, i katalog 185, 174 eller 135 feks. Om det er i våre oppskirfter at rundfellingen ikke stemmer vil vi gjerne at du sier ifra slik at vi kan få rettet det opp. Som du kan se her er alle økinger tegnet inn i diagrammet og det skal derfor gå opp som forklart. God fornøyelse

I'm having difficulty continuing past the 3rd row of the pattern. After the first increase the pattern on my knitting dosen't follow... what am I doing wrong?

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 07:37:

Dear Sandra, you can insert a marker after each repetition of the diagram so that you can always check the number of sts in diagram, ie after 3rd row: 7 sts + 1 YO in all sizes so that there are 8 sts in each repeat on row 4. Happy knitting!
