SWEATER:
Worked top down. First work the yoke back and forth, then divide the piece into body and sleeves. Body is worked in the round on circular needle, then work sleeves on double pointed needles. Pick up stitches into a band on each side of raglan opening and work a neck edge back and forth at the end.

YOKE:
Cast on (88) 88-92-92-96 (100-100) stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side of piece) on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light beige. Now work back and forth from one raglan line (i.e. between front piece and left sleeve).
Work as follows from right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see explanation above, work 1 stitch in stockinette stitch and insert 1st marker in this stitch, (16) 16-14-14-14 (16-14) stitches in stockinette stitch and increase (2) 4-4-6-6 (6-6) stitches evenly (= left sleeve) – read INCREASE TIP, work 1 stitch in stockinette stitch and insert 2nd marker in this stitch, (24) 24-28-28-30 (30-32) stitches in stockinette stitch, work 1 stitch in stockinette stitch and insert 3rd marker in this stitch (= back piece), (20) 20-18-18-18 (20-18) stitches in stockinette stitch and increase (2) 4-4-6-6 (6-6) stitches evenly (= right sleeve), work 1 stitch in stockinette stitch and insert 4th marker in this stitch, work (21) 21-25-25-27 (27-29) stitches in stockinette stitch, work 1 stitch in stockinette stitch and insert 5th marker in this stitch and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = (92) 96-100-104-108 (112-112) stitches.
Purl 1 row from wrong side with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side of piece.
On next row from right side increase for raglan as follows: Increase 1 stitch after 1st marker, 1 stitch on each side of 2nd, 3rd and 4th marker (= 2 stitches increased in total on each side of these markers) and increase 1 stitch before 5th marker (= 8 stitches increased on every increase round). Increase every other row (2) 4-8-9-13 (14-20) times in total, then every row (4) 4-3-3-2 (2-0) times in total (= (6) 8-11-12-15 (16-20) times in total) = (140) 160-188-200-228 (240-272) stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures (7) 8-9-10-11 (12-13) cm/(2 3/4") 3"-3½"-4"-4½" (4 3/4"-5"), cast on 2 new stitches at the end of the next 2 rows = (144) 164-192-204-232 (244-276) stitches. Now work piece in the round in stockinette stitch (round begins in transition between left sleeve and front piece) until piece measures (8) 9-10-11-12 (13-14) cm / (3") 3½"-4''-4 3/8''-4¾'' (5 1/8''-5½''). Now work body and sleeves as follows: Slip the first (34) 40-44-48-54 (58-64) stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve (= left sleeve), cast on 8 stitches under sleeve, knit (38) 42-52-54-62 (64-74), slip the next (34) 40-44-48-54 (58-64) stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve (= right sleeve), cast on 8 stitches under sleeve, knit the last (38) 42-52-54-62 (64-74) stitches.

BODY:
= (92) 100-120-124-140 (144-164) stitches. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue in the round in stockinette stitch as follows: When piece measures (6) 9-12-13-14 (17-20) cm, work A.1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time, purl next round (= folding edge). Knit 12 rounds with light beige. Bind off by knitting.

SLEEVE:
Slip the (34) 40-44-48-54 (58-64) stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5. Pick up 1 stitch in each of the 8 stitches cast on under sleeve = (42) 48-52-56-62 (66-72) stitches. Insert 1 marker mid under sleeve. Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from where piece was divided from body, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker - read DECREASE TIP.
Decrease like this every (2nd) 4th-4th-4th-4th (4th-5th) row (3) 5-7-9-11 (12-14) times in total = (36) 38-38-38-40 (42-44) stitches. When piece measures (4) 8-10-12-15 (18-23) cm/(1½") 3"-4"-4 3/4"-6 " (7"-9") work A.2 (the last 12 rows of A.2 is folded in and sewn to sleeve later). Bind off with light beige. Work the other sleeve the same way.

RAGLAN OPENING:
Now pick up 1 band inside 1 edge stitch on front piece back and forth as follows: Pick up (17) 19-22-24-26 (29-31) stitches on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light beige from right side. Work A.3 (work first row from wrong side, the last 10 rows of A.3 is folded in and sewn to sweater from wrong side). AT THE SAME TIME on 6th row (= from right side) decrease for 3 buttonholes evenly by knitting 2 stitches together and make 1 yarn over (make first buttonhole approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' down from neck, distribute the 2 remaining buttonholes evenly). Decrease for buttonhole the same way on 16th row. Remember that the buttonholes must be on top of each other later when the edge is folded, to button buttons through both holes.
Now pick up 1 band inside 1 edge stitch on left sleeve back and forth as follows: Pick up (17) 19-22-24-26 (29-31) stitches on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light beige from right side.

Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work A.4 over all stitches. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue with light beige. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures (9) 8-9-10-10 (10-11) cm/(3½") 3"-3½"-4"-4" (4"-4½") decrease (4) 4-2-0-2 (0-4) stitches evenly = (66) 78-90-96-96 (108-108) stitches. Then insert 6 markers (11) 13-15-16-16 (18-18) stitches apart. Approx. (5) 6-6-6-6 (7-7) cm/(2") 2½"-2½"-2½"-2½" (2 3/4"-2 3/4") remain on hat. Now decrease 1 stitch after every marker by knitting 2 stitches together every other round (7) 8-6-5-5 (6-6) times in total, then every round (2) 3-7-9-9 (10-10) times in total = 12 stitches. Work all stitches together 2 by 2 = 6 stitches. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches and tighten together. The entire hat measures approx. (19) 19-20-21-21 (22-23) cm/(7½") 7½"-8"-8 1/4"-8 1/4" (8 3/4"-9") (including folding edge).

decrease 1 stitch in each side by knitting the 2 next to last stitches together, decrease every 4th row (5) 3-2-4-6 (5-6) times and then every other row (2) 6-8-6-4 (7-7) times = 4 stitches, work these stitches together 2 by 2 and pass the 2 remaining stitches over each other, cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitch.
Flap measures approx. (5) 5-5-6-6½ (7-8) cm/(2") 2"-2"-2 1/4"-2½" (2 3/4"-3").

2ND EAR FLAP:
Pick up stitches (22) 26-28-32-34 (34-34) stitches from the first ear flap (these (22) 26-28-32-34 (34-34) stitches = mid front on hat). Pick up on 1 double pointed needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light beige 1 stitch in each of the next (18) 22-24-24-24 (28-30) stitches.

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

SOCK:
Cast on 40-44-48 (52-56) stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with light beige. Work in the round in rib (= knit 2/purl 2) until piece measures 5-6-7 (9-10) cm/2"-2½"-2 3/4" (3½"-4").
Slip the last stitch worked on to same needle as the first 19-19-23 (23-27) stitches on round = 20-20-24 (24-28) stitches on needle for heel.
Slip the other 20-24-24 (28-28) stitches (= on top of foot) on 1 stitch holder - rib on top of foot will now start and end with 1 purl stitch.
Work in stockinette stitch back and forth over heel stitches for 3-3-4 (4-4) cm/1"-1"-1½" (1½"-1½"). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Insert 1 marker in the middle of these stitches (= 10-12-12 (14-14) stitches on each side of marker). On next row from right side decrease as follows:
ROW 1 (= from right side): Knit until 4 stitches remain before marker, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 4 stitches, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit the rest of row = 18-18-22 (22-26) stitches.

Bind off the remaining stitches and sew together in outermost loop of edge stitch (= mid under foot).
Then pick up 24-24-28 (28-32) stitches in outermost loop of edge stitch over heel. Slip stitches from stitch holder back on needle = 44-48-52 (56-60) stitches. Continue in the round. NOTE! Work rib over the 20-24-24 (28-28) stitches on top of foot and stockinette stitch over the 24-24-28 (28-32) stitches under foot. AT THE SAME TIME on every other round decrease 1 stitch on each side of rib on top of foot - read DECREASE TIP-1! Decrease like this 2 times in total = 40-44-48 (52-56) stitches.
When sock measures 7½-8½-9 (11-12) cm/2 7/8"-3 1/4"-3½" (4 3/8"-4 3/4") from back on heel (approx. 2½-2½-3 (3-4) cm/7/8"-7/8"-1 1/8" (1 1/8"-1½") remain until finished measurements), distribute stitches so that there are 20-22-24 (26-28) stitches both on top of foot and under foot. Insert 1 marker in each side. Work in stockinette stitch in the round over all stitches - while AT THE SAME TIME decreasing 1 stitch on each side of every marker - read TOE DECREASE!
Decrease like this every other round 5-5-6 (6-7) times in total = 20-24-24 (28-28) stitches. Work all stitches together 2 by 2 = 10-12-12 (14-14) stitches. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Sock measures approx. 10-11-12 (14-16) cm / 4''-4 3/8''-4¾'' (5½''-6¼''). Work the other sock the same way.

Ich habe eine Frage zu den Zunahmen im Passe. Erfolgen diese tatsächlich in jeder 2.Reihe (also in jeder Hinreihe) oder in jeder 2. Hinrunde (und somit insgesamt in jeder 4.Reihe)? Daran anschließend stellt sich mir nämlich dann die Frage, ob die Zunahmen in"jeder" Reihe auch in Rückrunden erfolgen? Vielen Dank für eine Antwort.

DROPS Design 14.09.2018 kl. 08:25:

Liebe Teresa, wenn Sie in jeder 2. Reihe zunehmen werden Sie nur bei jeder Hinreihe zunehmen. Wenn Sie danach in jeder Reihe zunehmen, werden Sie bei jeder Hin- sowie bei jeder Rückreihe zunehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anika Krupke 02.07.2018 - 14:29:

Hallo, ich arbeite am Pullover. Ich möchte gerne wissen, ob ich es richtig verstanden habe, dass ich die letzten Zunahmen in der Passe (in jeder Reihe insgesamt 2 Maschen zunehmen Größe 80/86) in Hin- und Rückreihe aufnehme? In Zunahmehilfe steht ja das nur in Hinreihen zugenommen wird, dann würde aber die Maschenprobe nicht mehr stimmen. Danke!

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 16:29:

Liebe Frau Krupke, in der Größe 80/86 stricken Sie in Reihen bis die Arbeit 12 cm mist, dann (2 neuen Maschen wurden kurz davor auf beiden Seiten angeschlagen) stricken Sie in der Runde = alle Raglanzunahmen werden dann von der Vorderseite = Hinreihen gearbeitet. Viel Spaß beim stricknen!

Mari 07.04.2018 - 12:18:

Hvor mange masker trenger man på den bredeste delen av hovedstykket til størrelse 10 måneder?

DROPS Design 13.04.2018 kl. 10:41:

Hej Mari, vælger du hovedvidde 44/46 cm som modsvarer ca 12/18 mnd, skal du legge opp 98 masker. God fornøjelse!

Tove Damgaard 28.03.2018 - 21:41:

Hvorfor er der så stor forskel på maskeantallet på de to ærmer i trøjen? Man starter med henholdsvis 14 og 18 masker inden udtagninger?

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 13:36:

Hej Tove, på overgangen til venstre ærme skal der bagefter strikkes kanter, så ærmet bliver lige så stort som højre ærme. God fornøjelse!

Mu 07.03.2018 - 00:08:

Merci d'avoir présenté ce joli modèle avec le concours d'un bout de chou porteur d'un angiome, sans retoucher la photo.
