INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RAGLAN:
Increase to raglan on each side of the 4 marker threads in each transition between body and sleeves as follows: Start 1 stitch before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 8 stitches increased on the round). On the next round the yarn overs are knitted twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 156 stitches), and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 21) = 7.4.
In this example increase alternately after approx. every 7th and 8th stitch. Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

INCREASE TIP-2 (under sleeve):
Start 2 stitches from the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4, make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
The yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

NECK:
Cast on 72-78-78-84-90-96 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Air. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''-1½''. Change to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and knit 1 round. Then work yoke in the round.

YOKE:
Work A.1 in the round (= 12-13-13-14-15-16 repeats of 6 stitches – the pattern should fit neatly over the rib, so that the purled stitch in A.1 is over 1 knitted stitch from the rib and the knitted stitch in the middle of the leaf in A.1 is over 1 knitted stitch from the rib).
Continue A.1 as shown in the diagram. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When A.1 has been completed, there are 216-234-234-252-270-288 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 20-20-20-20-23-23 cm / 8"-8"-8"-8"-9½"-9½'' from the cast-on edge mid front.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches:
The first marker thread is inserted after the first 34-36-36-40-44-47 stitches (= ½ back piece), 2nd marker thread is inserted after the next 40-45-45-46-47-50 stitches (= sleeve), 3rd marker thread is inserted after the next 68-72-72-80-88-94 stitches (= front piece) and the 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 40-45-45-46-47-50 stitches (= sleeve). There are now 34-36-36-40-44-47 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread (= ½ back piece).
Work stockinette stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME when you have worked 1 round of stockinette stitch after A.1, start to increase to RAGLAN – see description above. Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 2-3-5-6-6-5 times = 232-258-274-300-318-328 stitches on needle.
Continue with stockinette stitch until there is 1 round left before the piece measures 23-24-25-27-29-31 cm / 9"-9½"-9 3/4"-10½"-11½"-12 1/4'' from the cast-on edge mid front. The next round is worked as follows:
Knit 36-39-41-46-50-52 stitches (= ½ back piece), place the next 44-51-55-58-59-60 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), knit 72-78-82-92-100-104 stitches (= front piece), place the next 44-51-55-58-59-60 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on needle (= in side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 36-39-41-46-50-52 stitches on the round (= ½ back piece). Cut the strand. Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 156-168-180-200-220-232 stitches. Start the round mid under the sleeve in the one side of the piece, i.e. in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 cast on stitches. Work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 32-33-34-33-33-33 cm / 12½"-13"-13½"-13"-13"-13'' from the separation, knit 1 round where you increase 21-24-27-28-29-32 stitches evenly on round - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 177-192-207-228-249-264 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''-1½''. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sweater measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 44-51-55-58-59-60 stitches from the thread in the one side of the piece on double pointed needles or short circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9, in addition knit up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 50-57-63-66-69-72 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-12 stitches under the sleeve and work stockinette stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from the separation, decrease 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3-1½-1½-1-1-1 cm / 1"-½"-½"-3/8"-3/8"-3/8'' a total of 5-8-10-11-11-12 times = 40-41-43-44-47-48 stitches. When the piece measures 17-16-20-15-15-16 cm / 6 3/4"-6 1/4"-8"-6"-6"-6 1/4'' from the separation (decreases should now be finished), increase 2 stitches mid under the sleeve – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 6-6-5-4½-4½-4 cm / 2 1/4"-2 1/4"-2"-1 3/4"-1 3/4"-1½'' a total of 4-4-4-5-5-5 times = 48-49-51-54-57-58 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 42-41-41-39-37-35 cm / 16½"-16"-16"-15 1/4"-14½"-13 3/4'' from the separation. Knit 1 round where you increase 0-2-0-0-0-2 stitches evenly on round = 48-51-51-54-57-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1½''-1½''-1½''. Loosely bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The sleeve measures approx. 45-44-44-43-41-39 cm / 17 3/4"-17 1/4"-17 1/4"-17"-16"-15 1/4'' from the separation. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Danke für die Antwort...bin schon an den Ärmeln...jetzt ist mir was sonderbares aufgefallen....wieso soll man für größe S den Ärmel länger Arbeiten als für gr. xxxl? Kann es ein Druckfehler sein? finde es recht kurz für gr.xxxl nur ingesamte Ärmellänge von 39cm. wärend man für die kleinste größe die längsten Ärmel arbeiten soll.

DROPS Design 25.02.2019 kl. 08:00:

Liebe Lidia, es stimmt so, die Halsausschnitt und Passe sind beide breiter in den grösseren Grösse, so werden die Ärmel nach der Passe kürzer. Schauen Sie mal die Maßskizze, so können Sie die Länge eventuel anpassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lidia 01.02.2019 - 18:20:

Bin leider noch nicht weit gekommen und schon muss ich die erste Frage stellen. Ich habe die erste reihe von A1 xxxl gestrickt. Wie komme ich weiter mit reihe 2? Das diagram hat sich ja durch die zwei umschläge verschoben. Aber auf meinen Nadeln hat es sich nicht verschoben. Ich fange trotzdem mit einer Linken masche an? Oder mit einer Rechten masche? Mich irritiert das verschobene diagramm

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 08:06:

Liebe Lidia, bei der 1. Reihe in A.1 haben Sie 2 Maschen zugenommen (= 8 M in jedem A.1), bei der 2. Runde stricken Sie die 2. Reihe in A.1 wie beschrieben, dh: 1 M li, 7 M re. Und so weiterstricken. Alle Reihen lesen Sie rechts nach links. Am Ende A.1 haben Sie 18 M in jedem A.1. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marthe Brekke 20.01.2019 - 11:17:

Finnes denne i barnestørrelser?:) Skulle så gjerne ha strikket den til ei jente på 11 år!:)

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 15:00:

Hei Marthe. Denne finnes kun som voksenmodell dessverre, men ønsket ditt er blitt videreformidlet til vår deisgnavdeling

Andrea 11.01.2019 - 10:36:

Hallo liebes Team, habe die Passe fast fertig und merke erst jetzt: gibt es keine Nackenerhöhung? Dann ist es ja hinten so tief wie vorne. Gibt es da eine generelle Vorgabe, also sowas wie "Nacken soll immer 3 cm höher sein als vorne" und bis wohin strickt man dann die verkürzten Reihen? Das vordere Viertel aussparen? Vielen Dank und liebe Grüße, Andrea PS: Ihr macht TOLLE Anleitungen, vielen Dank dafür

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 12:28:

Liebe Andrea, es gibt diesem Modell keine Erhöhung, dh beide Halsausschnitt vorne und hinten werden gleich. Wenn Sie lieber eine Erhöhung möchten, können Sie sich von einem ähnlichen Modell (selbe Maschenprobe mit Erhöhung) inspirieren. Ihr DROPS Laden kann Ihnen auch damit wahrscheinlich helfen (auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Fortsettelse på siste spørsmål. Strikker på pinne 5,5, bør jeg øke pinnestørrelse

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 12:02:

Hei Turid. Se svar under

Turid 16.12.2018 - 21:35:

Hvis arbeidet måler ca 19 cm etter at A1 er strikket bør jeg glattstrikke 1 cm før jeg starter på raglanfelling? Strikker nok litt stramt. Takk for hjelpa😄

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 12:02:

Hei Turid. For at bærestykket ikke skal blir for lite (og stramme under ermene) bør du fortsette å strikke til du har riktig lengde. Vær også obs på at om du strikker stramt vil raglanen også bli kortere, som igjen vil påvirke lengden på bærestykket. Det er av den grunn det er veldig viktig at strikkefastheten blir overholdt. Strikker du stramt bør du øke pinnestørrelsen så mye som du trenger for å få den angitte strikkefasthen. Da slipper du å måtte endre oppskriften, eller risikere at plagget blir for lite. God fornøyelse

Turid 10.12.2018 - 16:17:

Hvor mange nøster av Drops air må jeg ha i STR L for å være sikker på å få nok garn? Jeg strikker nok litt stramt.

DROPS Design 11.12.2018 kl. 08:35:

Hei Turid. Du skal i utgangspunktet trenge 300 g i størrelse L, som er 6 nøster a 50 g. Det er viktig at strikkefastheten blir overholdt for å få de rette målene på plagget, samt det riktige garnforbruket. Et tips er å justere pinnestørrelsen slik at du overholder den angitte strikkefastheten. Er du usikker på om den oppgitte garnmengden holder, er det bedre med et nøste for mye enn et nøste for lite. God fornøyelse

Urda 02.10.2018 - 18:48:

Strikket denne i størrelse M, og til tross for at jeg var nøye med strikkefastheten, gikk jeg tom for garn da det var 5-10 cm igjen på det siste ermet. Veldig ergelig. Man trenger 350 g garn til str M, ikke 300g.

Mona Fonnes 12.09.2018 - 11:55:

Hei. Eg tror det er en feil i diagrammet til størrelse xxl+xxxl. Omg 19. Sammenlign med omg 19 på diagram for mindre størrelser. Kastene og maskene sammen skal være rett over som omg 17. Har strikket 3 gensere i mindre størrelser og holder nå på med en i xxl. Har rekt opp og mønsteret ser rett ut nå når eg gjorde som i de mindre størrelsene.

Dordi Hammer 17.06.2018 - 20:38:

Lurer på om det er noe feil i mønsteret. Er i gang med å strikke denne, men lurer litt på ermelengde. I oppskriften står det at det skal strikkes til ermet måler 42-41-41-39-37-35 cm, fra str S til XXXL. Virker ulogisk for meg at ermet er lengst på de minste str. Ser også at lengden på bolen fra under ermene og til vrangbord skiller bare 1 og 2 cm på de ulike str. Er dette riktig?

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 14:28:

Hei Dordi. Ja det stemmer, de større størrelsene har videre ermkuppel/skulderparti og derfor strikkes ikke ermene like lange som i de mindre størrelsene. Det stemmer også at det er 2 cm lengdeforskjell på genseren mellom hver størrelse (målt fra skulder til avfellingskant). Det er selvfølgelig ikke noe i veien for at du strikker både erme og bol lenger om du ønsker det, men vær da klar over at du da vil bruke mer garn. God fornøyelse.
