Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of A.1 (= 8 stitches increased per round). Increase by making 1 yarn over, on the next round work the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the round (e.g. 168 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 24) = 7. In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after every 7th stitch. On the next round, work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 3 stitches left before the marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches) knit the next 2 stitches together.
----------------------------------------------------------

The piece is worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. The sleeves are worked with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

SWEATER:
Cast on 80-84-88-96-96-104 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Air. Knit 1 round, then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 2 cm / 3/4''. The beginning of the round = mid back.
Change to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 and work the next round as follows: Knit 15-16-17-18-18-20 stitches - AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 2-1-2-2-2-3 stitches evenly over these stitches, knit 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches, knit 30-32-34-36-36-40 stitches – AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 4-2-4-4-4-6 stitches evenly over these stitches, knit 10-10-10-12-12-12 stitches, knit 15-16-17-18-18-20 stitches – AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 2-1-2-2-2-3 stitches evenly over these stitches = 88-88-96-104-104-116 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

The next round is worked as follows: Knit 14-14-16-17-17-20 stitches (=half back piece), A.1 (= 6 stitches), knit 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches (= sleeve), A.1, knit 28-28-32-34-34-40 stitches (= front piece), A.1, knit 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches (= sleeve), A.1, knit 14-14-16-17-17-20 stitches (= half back piece). Continue this pattern at the same time as you increase 1 stitch on each side of A.1 to RAGLAN – see description above. Increase every 2nd round a total of 20-23-23-26-28-30 times. After all the increases there are 248-272-280-312-328-356 stitches on the needle. Continue with pattern and stockinette stitch (without increasing) until the piece measures 23-26-27-29-31-33 cm / 9"-10 1/4"-10½"-11½"-12 1/4"-13'' from the cast-on edge mid front.

Work the next round as follows: Work 39-42-43-48-52-57 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 46-52-54-60-60-64 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-10-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve), knit 78-84-86-96-104-114 stitches (= front piece), place the next 46-52-54-60-60-64 stitches on 1 thread (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-10-8-10-10 new stitches on the needle (= under the sleeve), and work the remaining 39-42-43-48-52-57 stitches (= half back piece).

BODY:
= 168-180-192-208-228-248 stitches. Insert a marker. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE. Continue in the round with stockinette stitch until the piece measures 25-24-25-24-24-24 cm / 9 3/4"-9½"-9 3/4"-9½"-9½"-9½''. Knit 1 round where you increase 24-28-28-32-36-36 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 192-208-220-240-264-284 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 5 cm / 2''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl - to avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm / 21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles. Place the 46-52-54-60-60-64 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on circular needle/double pointed needles size 5.5 mm/US 9 and in addition cast on 6-6-10-8-10-10 new stitches mid under sleeve = 52-58-64-68-70-74 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the new stitches. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease every 4-3-2-2-1½-1½ cm / 1½"-1"-3/4"-3/4"-½"-½"'' a total of 9-11-14-15-15-16 times = 34-36-36-38-40-42 stitches. When the piece measures 36-34-33-31-30-29 cm / 14 1/4"-13½"-13"-12 1/4"-11 3/4"-11½'' knit 1 round where you increase 6-4-8-6-8-6 stitches evenly on round = 40-40-44-44-48-48 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). Continue with rib for 5 cm / 2'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 42-40-39-37-36-35 cm / 16½"-15 3/4"-15 1/4"14½"14 1/4"-13 3/4''. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Bonjour, j'aimerais tricoter ce pull ou un modèle similaire (assez simple pour mettre la laine en valeur plutôt que le modèle) mais en utilisant une laine d'aspect mohair. Puis-je utiliser la "Melody" ? Si oui en 1 fil ou 2 ? Ou en mélange avec une autre laine ? Si non avec quelle laine autre que la "Air" me le proposeriez-vous ? Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 14:45:

Bonjour Brigitte, Air appartient au groupe C alors que Melody appartient au groupe D, vous n'aurez pas le même échantillon, toutefois, vous pouvez essayer notre convertisseur pour voir les différentes possibilités, ex: 2 fils Kid-Silk ou bien 1 fil Brushed Alpaca Silk. Vous trouverez ici plus d'infos sur les alternatives. Bon tricot!

Hallo, ich habe die Raglanzunahmen alle gestrickt und es fehlen mir noch fast 10 cm in der vorderen Mitte gerechnet, bis ich die Maschen für die Ärmel stilllegen kann. Meine Frage ist nun, ob ich das A1 Muster weiter stricken soll ohne Zunahmen, damit das Muster fortlaufend ist bis zur Teilung in Ärmel und Vorder- und Rückenteil.

DROPS Design 15.02.2019 kl. 09:03:

Liebe Barbara, so würde ich auch stricken, dh mit A1 bis die richtige Masse weiterstricken - aber persönnlicher Hilfe bekommen Sie am besten direkt von Ihrem Laden, 10 cm sind etwas viel, stimmt Ihre Maschenprobe? Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kristine 13.02.2019 - 16:36:

Hei igjen! Siden dette er min første genser har jeg slitt litt med å forstå oppskriften, særlig beskrivelsen av hvor man skal begynne å øke. Og hvor man skal sette maskemarkørene. Det kommer litt utydelig frem.\r\n\r\nNå har jeg økt en del omganger, men ser ut som jeg har gjort en feil. Baksiden og fremsiden er litt ulike størrelser, skal de være like? \r\n\r\nOg finnes det en tydeligere beskrivelse akkurat hvor disse maskemarkørene skal settes?

Kristine 09.02.2019 - 19:29:

Og hva gjør jeg dersom strikkefastheten stemmer i bredden, men er for liten i høyden?

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 06:17:

Hei Kristin, Du får bare strikke til riktige mål i høyden - ikke noe problem med denne genseren som er bare vrangbord og glattstrikk. God fornøyelse!

Kristine 09.02.2019 - 10:35:

Hei igjen! Jeg mener at jeg fikk ca. 10 cm på 18 masker og 23 pinner glattstrikk, altså der det står at man skal ha 4,5 eller andre pinner som passer.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 11:48:

Hei Kristine. Strikkefasthet er veldig individuelt, så derfor er pinnestørrelsen som står i oppskriften kun en guide. Det som er vitkig er at strikkefastheten i oppskriften blir overholdt, så du må bruke de pinnene som gir deg denne strikkefastheten. Hvis du får den angitte strikkefastheten på pinne 6,5 er det disse pinnene du må strikke med. Strikker du med feil strikkefastheten risikerer du at plagget får andre mål en på målskissen. God fornøyelse.

Kristine 09.02.2019 - 00:25:

Hei! Ang. strillefasthet: Jeg får ikke 10 cm på pinne 4,5, men ca. pinne 5,5. I oppskriften står det at jeg skal begynne med rundpinne 4,5. Ettersom jeg har brukt 5,5 til riktig strikkefasthet, vil det si at jeg begynner med 5,5 i oppskriften? Og når det står at jeg skal øke til 5,5, vil det for mitt vedkommende bety at jeg skal øke til 6,5? Mvh nybegynner på strikkefasthet og genserstrikk

DROPS Design 09.02.2019 kl. 08:33:

Hei Kristine, Strikkefastheten beskrevet her er med pinne 5,5, så da har du riktige fasthet. Så bruk pinnene som beskrevet i oppskriften - begynne med 4,5 og bytt til 5,5. God fornøyelse!

Anna 07.02.2019 - 10:16:

Hello! Why this instruction without elevation, this is correct? I knit this pullover, but it not comfortable to wear without elevation on raglan.... (((((

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 12:31:

Dear Anna, some of our patterns do have an elevation some don't, to match everyone's taste. You can make an elevation if you like too, taking inspiration from a top down jumper with an elevation. Happy knitting!

Sofie 13.01.2019 - 15:19:

Hej Jeg forstår ikke helt hvilke pinde man skal bruge? Kan jeg bruge: Rundpind 4,5 og 5,5 på 80cm Og strømpepinde 4,5 og 5,5?

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 11:57:

Hei Sofie. Settpinnene brukes til ermet da rundpinnene er litt for lange til så få masker. Rundpinnene brukes til bolen. Jeg vil tro du trenger en 40cm rundpinne til halsen: 80 blir for lang, og settpinner blir for kort. Når det kommer til pinnestørrelsen du må ha (altså tykkelsen) avgjøres dette av strikkefastheten. Alle strikker forskjellig så du må bruke den pinnestørrelsen som gir deg 16 masker og 20 pinner glattstrikk på 10 cm i bredden og 10 cm i høyden. Kanskje må du gå opp eller ned 1 pinnestørrelse i forhold til det som står. Har du feil strikkefasthet blir plaggets mål feil. God fornøyelse
