INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 114 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 11.4.
In this example, decrease by alternately knitting together every 10th and 11th stitch and every 11th and 12th stitch (approx.). When increasing, make 1 yarn over alternately after every 11th and 12th stitch (approx.). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

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

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension becoming tighter when working pattern, it is important that the strands at the back of the piece are not tight. Increase 1 needle size if necessary when working pattern.

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 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. A total of 8 stitches are increased on every increase round.

INCREASE TIP (for sides of body): 
Start 8 stitches before the marker thread in the side of the body, make 1 yarn over, knit 16 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 16 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. The increased stitches are worked in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for mid under sleeve):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (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).
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
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.
You can work an elevation in the back of the neck for a better fit so that the neck is higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck will then be the same front and back – see description for elevation further down in the text.

NECK:
Cast on 114-117-123-129-135-141 stitches with circular needle size 2.5 mm and light grey. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3 cm. When the rib is finished, knit 1 round where you decrease 10-9-11-9-7-9 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 104-108-112-120-128-132 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm.
Now you can work an elevation in the back of the neck or go straight to working the yoke if you do not want an elevation.

ELEVATION IN BACK OF NECK:
Skip this section if you do not want an elevation.
Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round = mid back. Start at the marker from the right side with light grey and knit 9-10-11-12-13-14 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 18-20-22-24-26-28 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 27-30-33-36-39-42 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 36-40-44-48-52-56 stitches.
Continue back and forth like this by working 9-10-11-12-13-14 more stitches each time you turn until you have worked over the middle 72-80-88-96-104-112 stitches and the last row worked was from the wrong side. Turn, tighten the strand and knit back to mid back.

YOKE:
= 104-108-112-120-128-132 stitches. Read KNITTING TIP and work A.1 in the round (= 26-27-28-30-32-33 repeats of 4 stitches). AT THE SAME TIME on each round marked with an arrow in A.1 increase evenly spaced as described below – remember DECREASE/INCREASE TIP and REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Arrow-1: Increase 20-20-20-32-32-36 stitches evenly spaced = 124-128-132-152-160-168 stitches.
Arrow -2: Increase 8-8-8-16-14-12 stitches evenly spaced = 132-136-140-168-174-180 stitches.
There is now room for 33-34-35-28-29-30 repeats of 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches. Then increase as shown in the diagram.
Arrow -3: There are now 264-272-280-280-290-300 stitches on the needle and each repeat covers 8-8-8-10-10-10 stitches. Increase AT THE SAME TIME 18-16-20-26-28-30 stitches evenly spaced on this round = 282-288-300-306-318-330 stitches.
Arrow -4: Increase 6-6-6-14-10-6 stitches evenly spaced = 288-294-306-320-328-336 stitches.
Continue working until A.1 has been completed. Then knit 1 round with light grey where you increase 0-0-4-6-6-4 stitches evenly spaced = 288-294-310-326-334-340 stitches.
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches):
The first marker thread is inserted after the first 45-46-48-52-55-58 stitches on the round (= ½ back piece), 2nd marker thread is inserted after the next 55-56-60-60-58-55 stitches (= sleeve), 3rd marker thread is inserted after the next 89-91-95-103-109-115 stitches (= front piece) and the 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 55-56-60-60-58-55 stitches (= sleeve). There are 44-45-47-51-54-57 stitches left on the round after the last marker thread (= ½ back piece).
Continue in the round with stocking stitch and light grey. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round increase to RAGLAN – see description above (= 8 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2nd round a total of 5-9-11-13-16-19 times on each side of the 4 marker threads = 328-366-398-430-462-492 stitches.
Continue working without increasing until the piece measures 22-24-26-28-30-32 cm from the cast-on edge mid front. The next round is worked as follows: Knit 50-55-59-65-71-77 stitches (= ½ back piece), place the next 65-74-82-86-90-93 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on the needle (= in side under the sleeve), knit 99-109-117-129-141-153 stitches (= front piece), place the next 65-74-82-86-90-93 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-16 new stitches on needle (= in side under the sleeve) and knit the remaining 49-54-58-64-70-76 stitches (= ½ back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 218-238-258-282-310-338 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches cast on under each sleeve = 109-119-129-141-155-169 stitches between marker threads for front and back pieces. Start the round at one of the marker threads.
Continue in the round with stocking stitch and light grey. When the piece measures 3 cm from the separation, increase 2 stitches in each side – read INCREASE TIP (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2½ cm a total of 12 times in each side = 266-286-306-330-358-386 stitches.
When the piece measures 35 cm from the separation knit 1 round where you increase 55-59-63-66-74-79 stitches evenly spaced = 321-345-369-396-432-465 stitches.
The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 1, 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH – see description above *, work from *-* to end of round. Continue the rib like this for 3 cm. Then cast off with knit, but make sure that the cast-off edge is not tight. The jumper measures approx. 60-62-64-66-68-70 cm from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 65-74-82-86-90-93 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on double pointed needles or short circular needle size 3 mm and, in addition, knit up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 75-84-94-98-104-109 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-16 stitches mid under sleeve and start the round here. Work stocking stitch in the round. When the piece measures 2-2-3-3-3-3 cm from the separation, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 10th-7th-5th-5th-4th-4th round a total of 13-17-21-22-23-24 times = 49-50-52-54-58-61 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 41-40-38-37-35-34 cm from the separation (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 8-10-11-12-11-11 stitches evenly on the round = 57-60-63-66-69-72 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can make 1 yarn over after every 6th stitch at the same time as you cast off (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches). Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Kan man istedet for bærestykket tage ud og strikke raglan fra hvor ribkanten slutter?

Mitt barnebarn, snart 18 år, fikk velge en genser fra Dropsmodellene som jeg skulle strikke til henne og hun valgte denne. Jeg har ikke strikket raglanfelling før og ble litt usikker, men oppskriften var veldig grei og genseren ble flott.
