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. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use number of stitches on row (e.g. 110 stitches) and divide number of stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 44) = 2.5. 
In this example increase by making a yarn over after alternately approx. every 2nd and 3rd stitch. On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

RAGLAN:
Increase in every transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on round).
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes. Then knit the new stitches.

INCREASE TIP (applies to sides of body):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over. Repeat in the other side (= 4 stitches increased on round). On next round knit yarns over twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 110-115-120-125-130-137 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Safran. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 round while increasing 44-39-38-41-56-65 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced) = 154-154-158-166-186-202 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Insert 4 marker threads in piece without working as follows: Insert a marker thread at beginning of round (= in transition between sleeve and back piece), insert next marker thread after 53-53-55-59-69-77 stitches, (= back piece), insert next marker thread after another 24 stitches (= sleeve), insert next marker thread after another 53-53-55-59-69-77 stitches (= front piece), 24 stitches (= sleeve) now remain after last marker thread.
Round begins in transition between sleeve and back piece. Now work pattern as follows: Knit 2, make 1 yarn over, knit 0-0-1-3-8-12, work the middle 49 stitches in A.1 (i.e. skip the outermost 4 stitches in each side of diagram), knit 0-0-1-3-8-12 (= back piece), make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over, knit 20 (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), make 1 yarn over, knit 11-11-12-14-19-23, A.2 (= 27 stitches), knit 11-11-12-14-19-23, make 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread is in the middle of these 4 stitches), make 1 yarn over, knit 20 (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, knit 2. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. First increase for RAGLAN - explanation above, is now done (= 8 stitches increased on round). Continue pattern like this and increase every other round 20-24-28-31-33-36 times in total (including first increase explained above) = 314-346-382-414-450-490 stitches. NOTE! For every increase for raglan there is room for one more stitch of pattern A.1 towards raglan lines on back piece. When enough stitches have been increased to work all stitches in diagram A.1, 16-20-24-27-29-32 increases remain for raglan – knit these stitches. Repeat diagram A.1 vertically until finished measurements. Work A.2 one time vertically, then work in stocking stitch over stitches in A.2.
When all increases are done, the piece should measure 15-17-20-22-23-25 cm from cast-on edge mid front. Continue without increase for raglan until piece measures 19-20-21-22-23-25 cm from cast-on edge mid front (if the knitting tension is correct vertically this measurement is already achieved in size XL, XXL, and XXXL). Work next row as follows: Work first 93-101-111-121-135-149 stitches (= back piece), slip the next 64-72-80-86-90-96 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches in the side under sleeve, work the next 93-101-111-121-135-149 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 64-72-80-86-90-96 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches in the side under sleeve. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 202-218-238-262-290-318 stitches. Insert a marker thread in each side, i.e. in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches cast on in each side under sleeves (= 101-109-119-131-145-159 stitches on both back and front piece). Continue in the round with pattern A.1 on back piece as before and work in stocking stitch over the remaining stitches on round. When piece measures 4 cm, increase 2 stitches in each side - read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this approx. every 3-3-3-4-4-4 cm 9 times in total = 238-254-274-298-326-354 stitches. When piece measures approx. 34-35-36-37-38-38 cm from division, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 3 ridges. Cast off. To avoid at tight cast-off edge cast off with a larger sized needle. Top measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 64-72-80-86-90-96 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 72-80-88-96-100-106 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-10 new stitches under sleeve. Begin round here and work in stocking stitch in the round. When sleeve measures 2 cm from division, switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm. Work 3 ridges. Cast off. To avoid at tight cast-off edge cast off with a larger sized needle. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Quisiera hacer la parte d atrás sin calados sólo en punto derecho es posible?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 22:40:

Hola Marylin. Puedes trabajar la espalda sin calados sustituyendo los puntos trabajados junto al diagrama A.1 por puntos en punto jersey.

Beverly 28.09.2018 - 18:37:

I figured out what was wrong, i was misreading the chart. Now my second question. Is the pattern to knit all stitches every other row? As every other row on the chart is blank

DROPS Design 30.09.2018 kl. 09:02:

Dear Beverly,the even numbered rows (every other row) is knit all the way around. Happy Knitting!

Beverly 28.09.2018 - 14:49:

I am knitting size M. I have done the 3 garter ridges and added the 39 stitches. My problem is that as i am working the middle 49 stitches of A1, i run out of stitches before i finish the pattern. I am able to finish about 44 stitches of the pattern. What am i doing wrong?

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 07:45:

Dear Berverly, work 1st row in pattern while inc for raglan as follows: Knit 2, 1 YO, work the middle 49 stitches in A.1, (= back piece), 1 YO, knit 4, 1 YO, knit 20 (= sleeve), 1 YO, knit 4, 1 YO, knit 11, A.2 (= 27 stitches), knit 11, 1 YO, knit 4, 1 YO, knit 20 (= sleeve), 1 YO, knit 2. = 2+49+4+20+4+11+27+11+4+20+2= 154+8 YOs = 162 sts. Happy Knitting!

Ich habe mir diesen Pulli in schwarz und das n blau gestrickt! Er sitzt super und ist ein echtes Allround-Teil. Großartig!!!! Nun habe ich schon den ersten Auftrag einer Freundin bekommen, ihr auch einen zu stricken 😊

Ich habe mir diesen wunderschönen Pulli nachgestrickt. Es war das erste Mal, dass ich einen Pullover von oben nach unten strickte und es hat super geklappt. Durch das durchgehende Muster im Rückenbereich wird das Stricken auch nicht langweilig.

Bader Isabel 16.07.2018 - 10:02:

Guten Tag Gerne möchte ich dieses Top ohne Muster stricken. Kann ich das Muster einfach ignorieren und die Raglanzunahmen arbeiten und muss ich trotzdem Maschen überspringen? Mir ist nicht ganz klar, wie ich einen Ausschnitt erhalte. Vielen Dank für Ihre Rückmeldung und freundliche Grüsse. Isabel Bader

DROPS Design 16.07.2018 kl. 12:03:

Liebe Frau Bader, Sie können wahrscheinlich das Top ohne Lochmuster stricken, einfach Diagramme ignorieren, für die Raglanzunahmen werden Löcher entstehen, wenn Sie keine möchten, können Sie die Umschläge verschränkt stricken (oder mit einem anderen Technik zunehmen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Doris 19.05.2018 - 09:26:

Ich habe den Pullover in Drops Baby Merino gestrickt. Er ist superschön geworden und passt wie angegossen. Danke für die vielen schönen Muster!

Carmen 10.05.2018 - 19:44:

Tengo una duda con este patrón. Cuando dice que a partir de los 15cms de ranglan se siga tejiendo hasta los 19cms pero sin aumentar puntos ?se sigue echando la hebra para que quede el agujero? No se si me he explicado bien ,espero que si.Gracias por atenderme.

DROPS Design 13.05.2018 kl. 12:48:

Hola Carmen, después de completar los aumentos del raglán, las vueltas que se trabajan para alcanzar las medidas no tienen hebras, ya que las hebras se trabajan para aumentar puntos.

TREHOUT 04.05.2018 - 12:36:

Bonjour, est-il est possible de livrer en france le coloris 17 (blanc)?\r\nsi oui, à quel prix?
