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.

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.

JUMPER:
Cast on 80-84-88-96-96-104 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Air. Knit 1 round, then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 2 cm. The beginning of the round = mid back.
Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm 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 KNITTING TENSION!

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 stocking stitch (without increasing) until the piece measures 23-26-27-29-31-33 cm 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 stocking stitch until the piece measures 25-24-25-24-24-24 cm. 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 and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 5 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl - to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with needle size 5.5 mm. The piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm 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 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 stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease every 4-3-2-2-1½-1½ cm 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 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 and work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). Continue with rib for 5 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 42-40-39-37-36-35 cm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Merci pour tous vos modèles. Je trouve que les emmanchures sont souvent trop grandes à mon goût sous les bras. Comment y remédier et comment puis je trouver vos raglans sans top down. Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 09:32:

Bonjour Nathalie, vous trouverez sous chaque modèle un schéma avec toutes les mesures prises à plat, regardez bien ces mesures et comparez-les à un ouvrage dont vous aimez la forme pour trouver le modèle qui vous convient. Vous trouverez ici tous nos modèles de pulls raglan, il vous faudra regarder parmi ceux qui vous plaisent ceux s'ils se tricotent de haut en bas ou de bas en haut. Bon tricot!

Tine 01.12.2018 - 11:03:

Er gået i gang med at tage ud ved mønstret A1 efter halsen. Skal jeg gøre det en maske før/efter mønstret? Ærmet bliver ikke bredere ved udtagningerne eller hvordan? Udtagningerne ligger ved siden af A1 og på billedet ser det ud til ærmet får flere masker på?

DROPS Design 05.12.2018 kl. 09:32:

Hei Tine. Du øker 1 maske på hver side av A.1, det økes rett før/rett etter A.1. Det er totalt 4 A.1 på omgangen - i hver overgang mellom bol og ermer. Det betyr at ved hver A.1 økes 1 maske på ermet, og 1 maske på bolen = 8 masker økt på hele omgangen (2 på fortsykket, 2 på bakstykket og 2 på hvert erme). God fornøyelse

Thank you so very much

Catherine Berg 26.11.2018 - 04:11:

I am knitting this sweater. I dont understand these instructions. If I increase every other row (A1 = 8 stiches) I added up 184 stitches not 280. Please help. Cathy\\r\\nContinue 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.

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 10:50:

Dear Mrs Berg, there are 96 sts before increase for raglan and you will increase for raglan - see RAGLAN- 8 sts a total of 23 times = 8 sts x 23 = 184 sts will be increased in total. so that you have then: 96 + 184 sts = 280 sts. Happy knitting!

Anna Wilks 04.11.2018 - 12:54:

Hi, is this quite an "airy" jumper ('scuse the pun)? I'm knitting a tension square and already finding I need to go up a needle size, maybe 2. Also, are the first tension instructions for air and yarns from yarn group C?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 09:31:

Dear Mrs Wilks, the usual tension to DROPS Air is 17 sts = 10 cm, we are working here with a tension of 16 sts = 10 cm, so the fabric will be somewhat loose. You can use DROPS Air or any yarn from yarn group C - read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Caro 01.11.2018 - 21:29:

Hvordan bør jeg sjekke strikkefastheten før jeg begynner? Bør jeg strikke 16 masker og 20 pinner og så sjekke at jeg får 10x10cm eller bør jeg strikke et større stykke og telle maskene jeg får innenfor 10x10cm? Er det noen forskjell? Og dersom det ikke stemmer, går jeg enten en halv pinne opp eller ned for å få det til å stemme?

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 08:07:

Hei Caro, Det er lettest å strikke en prøvelapp som er litt større enn 10 x 10 cm og deretter teller hvor mange masker og rad du får på 10 x 10 cm. Hvis du har for mange masker går du opp en pinne størrelse, hvis du har for få, øker du pinne størrelsen. God fornøyelse!

Nanna Roe Nissen 30.10.2018 - 12:35:

Jeg undrer mig over, hvorfor der skal tages så mange masker ud på ryg/forstykke lige før den afsluttende ribkant forneden. Hvad er hensigten med det?

DROPS Design 31.10.2018 kl. 11:29:

Hei Nanna. Det økes rett før vrangborden for at det ikke skal bli så stor viddeforskjell på denne og bolen. Vrangbord er mer elastisk enn glattstrikk og trekker seg derfor mer sammen når den ligger flatt. Om du ser på bildet av genseren ser du at vrangborden er like vid som bolen - derfor økes det før det strikkes vrangbord. God fornøyelse.

Mette 22.10.2018 - 20:46:

Hej - jeg er kommet til det punkt hvor strikke -tøjet deles op i ærmer og krop, og bliver pludselig i tvivl om det er her der skal tages masker ud ( 24 jævnt fordelt på str. medium) eller er det først lige før den nederste rib påbegyndes at der skal tages ud !? Mvh Mette

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 08:35:

Hei Mette. Alle økinger på bærestykke er ferdig før du setter masker på en tråd til erme, så det er ingen øking her. Det skal økes 28 masker jevnt fordelt (str. M) før du strikker vrangbord nederst på bolen - når arbeidet måler 24 cm fra der det ble delt til ermer og bol. God fornøyelse

Sylvia 13.10.2018 - 22:57:

Wo werden die 8 Maschen, die jede 2. Runde durch die Raglanzunahmen entstehen, dazugestrickt? Beim halben Rückenteil? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 09:21:

Liebe Sylvia, Sie werden insgesamt 8 Maschen pro Zunahmenrunde zunehmen: 1 Masche vor jedem A.1 und 1 Masche nach jedem A.1 = es werden 1 M pro Halbes Rückenteil, 2 Maschen pro Ärmel und 2 Maschen für das Vorderteil zugenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Adelaide 03.10.2018 - 22:24:

Quando acabo o tricot em ponto de jarreteira ela enrola. O que fazer.? Já experimentei com agulha mais grossa! Mas fica enrolada também. Cumprimentos. Obrigada

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 13:39:

Neste modelo não há ponto jarreteira... No entanto, fica a dica: passe sempre a 1.ª malha sem tricotar tanto no direito como no avesso para não enrolar tanto. Bom Tricô!
