INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 4) = 20.5.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over alternately after the 20th and 21st stitch. On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain left before the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 4 stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

STRIPES:
11-11-11-12-12-12 cm / 4½"-4½"-4½"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4 3/4'' with 1 strand off-white Alpaca and 1 strand gray blue Kid-Silk.
11-11-11-12-12-12 cm / 4½"-4½"-4½"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4 3/4'' with 1 strand off-white Alpaca and 1 strand off-white Kid-Silk.
11-11-11-12-12-12 cm / 4½"-4½"-4½"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4 3/4'' with 1 strand off-white Alpaca and 1 strand gray blue Kid-Silk.
Then work with 1 strand off-white Alpaca and 1 strand off-white Kid-Silk to finished length.

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the 16 stitches in garter stitch in each transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on the round). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

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, knit 2 stitches together, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch

---------------------------------------------------------

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

YOKE:
Cast on 82-85-88-91-97-102 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and 1 strand off-white Alpaca and 1 strand off-white Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Knit 1 round then work 3 RIDGES - see description above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Work 1 ridge where, on the first round, you increase 4-13-18-19-17-16 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced) = 86-98-106-110-114-118 stitches.
Now work STRIPES – see description above, work pattern and increase to RAGLAN – see description above, as follows: Knit 5-8-10-11-12-13 stitches (= half back piece), make 1 yarn over, 16 stitches in garter stitch (= raglan line), make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, 16 stitches in garter stitch (= raglan line), make 1 yarn over, knit 10-16-20-22-24-26 stitches (= front piece), make 1 yarn over, 16 stitches in garter stitch (= raglan line), make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, 16 stitches in garter stitch (= raglan line), make 1 yarn over, knit 5-8-10-11-12-13 stitches (= half back piece).
The first increase to raglan is now finished (= 8 stitches increased on the round). Continue in the round like this and increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 21-23-25-27-30-32 times = 254-282-306-326-354-374 stitches. When all the increases to raglan are finished, the piece should measure 21-23-25-27-29-31 cm / 8¼''-9''-9¾''-10 5/8''-11 3/8''-12¼'' from the cast on edge mid front and down. If the piece is shorter than this continue with pattern as before until you have reached the correct length (without increasing any more stitches).

The next round is worked as follows (continue with the pattern as before): Work 36-40- 42-46- 50-54 stitches (= half back piece), place the next 55-61-69-71-77-79 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= side under sleeve), work the next 72-80-84-92-100-108 stitches (= front piece), place the next 55-61-69-71-77-79 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches on the needle (= side under sleeve), work the remaining 36-40- 42-46- 50-54 stitches (= half back piece).

BODY:
= 156-172-184-200-220-240 stitches. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Insert a marker thread in each side (= in the middle of the new stitches cast on under each sleeve = 3-3-4-4-5-6 new stitches on each side of the marker thread).
Continue in the round with stockinette stitch and work garter stitch over the 10-9-7-8-8-9 stitches left on the front/back pieces (from the garter stitch section in the raglan line), AT THE SAME TIME on every 2nd round make 1 yarn over on the outside of each garter stitch section towards mid front and towards mid back (= a total of 4 stitches increased on round) and decrease 1 stitch in each garter stitch section by knitting the 2 outermost stitches in garter stitch section towards the side of the sweater together (= 1 stitch decreased in each garter stitch section towards the side, a total of 4 stitches decreased on round). NOTE! The number of stitches stays the same, but the stitches in garter stitch will gradually disappear and there will be more stitches in stockinette stitch, (i.e.4 stitches increased and 4 stitches decreased on every 2nd round). When all the stitches in garter stitch are gone continue working in stockinette stitch, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread in each side – read INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 8-8-9-9-7-7 cm / 3"-3"-3½"-3½"-2 3/4"-2 3/4'' a total of 4-4-4-4-5-5 times = 172-188-200-216-240-260 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 36 cm / 14 1/4'' in all sizes. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work garter stitch for 7 cm / 2¾''. Bind off with knit. You can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary to avoid the bind-off edge being tight. The piece measures approx. 66-68-70-72-74-76 cm / 26''-26¾''-27½''-28 3/8''-29 1/8''-30'' from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 55-61-69-71-77-79 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and, in addition, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-12 new stitches mid under the sleeve = 61-67-77-79-87-91 stitches on the needles. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches – THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Work stockinette stitch over stockinette stitch and garter stitch over garter stitch, at the same time as the stitches in garter stitch are decreased in the same way as on the body (the number of stitches stays the same). When all the stitches in garter stitch have gone, continue working in stockinette stitch over all stitches, at the same time on the first round decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 6th-5th-3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd round a total of 12-13-18-18-20-22 times = 37-41-41-43-47-47 stitches.
Continue with stockinette stitch in the round until the piece measures 36-34-34-32-30-29 cm / 14 1/4"-13½"-13½"-12½"-11 3/4"-11½''. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work garter stitch for 5 cm / 2''. Bind off with knit. You can use a needle 1 size larger if necessary to avoid the bind-off edge being tight. The sleeve measures 42-40-39-37-35-34 cm / 16½"-15 3/4"-15 1/4"-14½"-13 3/4"-13½''. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the openings under the sleeves.

Jeg kan ikke få strikkeprøven til at passe. Jeg har valgt at strikke med 2 tråde kid slik i stedet for alpaka. Skal man ikke lave sin strikkeprøve med 2 tråde?

DROPS Design 01.07.2019 kl. 10:43:

Hej. Jo du ska sticka med 2 trådar för att få den stickfasthet vi uppgett. Får du inte det så får du prova att gå upp eller ned i storlek på pinnen till du får det att passa. Lycka till!

Johanna 09.04.2019 - 21:03:

Hej! Jag förstår inte hur man ska göra mönstret vid ränderna, första och andra varvet förstår jag, men senare vet jag inte var jag skall göra omslag? Skall jag lägga omslag efter varje 5e, 16e maska och så vidare ? Eller hur gör jag? (gör strl s)

DROPS Design 10.04.2019 kl. 07:56:

Hej. Det ökas 1 maska på varje sida av de 16 maskorna rätstickning i varje övergång mellan fram- och bakstycke och ärmar (= 8 maskor ökade på varvet). De ökade maskorna stickas sedan i slätstickning. Lycka till!

Natasja 08.03.2019 - 16:45:

Worden er geen markeerders gebruikt? Zou makkelijker zijn voor de raglan denk ik of hoe moet ik het anders zien?

DROPS Design 15.03.2019 kl. 18:45:

Dag Natasja

Omdat de raglanlijn in dit patroon vrij breed is en in ribbelsteek gebreid wordt, waardoor duidelijk zichtbaar is waar je de raglanmeerderingen moet maken is het niet nodig om markeerders te gebruiken. Mocht je dat handig vinden, dan kun je die uiteraard plaatsen, bijvoorbeeld aan de buitenkant van de 16 steken van de raglanlijn.

Dorthe Wenneke 20.02.2019 - 13:26:

Jeg forstår ikke, hvorfor man skal tage ind og ud på hver side af retstrikningen fra raglan til at forsvinde gradvist? Kan man ikke bare skifte til glatstrikning en maske (4 i alt) pr. runde?

DROPS Design 22.02.2019 kl. 14:53:

Hei Dorthe. Det gjøres slik for at overgangen skal bli jevn og myk. Om du strikker 1 maske mer i glattstrikk i hver ende av rettstrikken for hver omgang vil du få en hakkete overgang mellom rettstrikken og glattstrikken. God fornøyelse

Anja 11.02.2019 - 18:29:

Beste, bij het doornemen van de uitleg lees ik bij de tip voor het minderen aan de mouwen dat er vóór de markeerdraad moet geminderd worden door 2 st samen te breien en na de markeerdraad door een steek af te nemen en over te halen over de volgende gebreide steek. Vanwaar dit verschil in manier van minderen? Mag dit niet telkens door samen te breien? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 11:10:

Dag Anja,

Op deze manier liggen (/wijzen) de steken vanaf beide kanten richting de onderarm toe, vandaar dat het voor en na de markeerdraad verschillend wordt gedaan.

Horti Vuegen 06.11.2018 - 15:59:

Omdat ik niet graag brei met rondbreinaald en al de pulls hiermede worden gebreid is mijn vraag of jullie in de beschrijving kunnen melden hoe je tewerk gaat wanneer met 2 naalden wordt gebreid ( aantal steken enz...) Veel dank en succes !

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 15:06:

Dag Horti,

We hebben een algemeen artikel over hoe je een patroon omzet om met rechte naalden te kunnen breien, die kun je hier vinden. Let wel op dat niet alle patronen geschikt zijn om met rechte naalden te breien.

Britta 23.10.2018 - 09:55:

Hvilket mønster er det for det bliver ikke beskrevet.

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 15:56:

Hei Britta. Det er ikke noe mønster på denne genseren. Det er riller i overgnagen mellom bol og ermer, og felles til raglan på hver side av disse maskene, er det kanskje det du sikter til? God fornøyelse.

Birgitte 09.10.2018 - 12:53:

Jeg vil gerne strikke den ensfarvet i str. M, hvormange nøgler skal jeg så have af hver kvalitet?

DROPS Design 16.10.2018 kl. 13:13:

Hei Birgitte. Siden du strikker med 2 tråder, og DROPS Alpaca er ensfarget hele veien (natur) kan du bruke garnkalkulatoren vår for å finne ut hvor mange gram Kid-Silk du trenger. Fyll inn den oppgitte garnmengden av Alpaca for din størrelse og du vil få vite hvor mye Kid-Silk dette tilsvarer. God fornøyelse.

D. Slot 19.09.2018 - 17:28:

Tak for svar, men jeg vil gerne have halsudskæringen dybere, da jeg også skal bruge den med en skjorte under?

D.Slot 17.09.2018 - 21:08:

Kan modellen strikkes nedefra og op: Så kan jeg vente med at tage stilling til halsen til sidst?

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 14:45:

Hej, Det kan det godt, men vi kan desværre ikke hjælpe dig med at skrive den om. Men halsen er så flot på :)
