INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

RAGLAN:
Increase 8 stitches on round.
On back piece and sleeve the increases are shown in diagrams A.1 and A.3.
Increase on front piece as follows:
After marker thread: Knit 1, make 1 yarn over.
Before marker thread: Work until 1 stitch remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, marker thread is here.
On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 6) = 13.7. In this example increase after approx. every 14th stitch.
Increase with yarn over after stitch and knit yarn over twisted on next round.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over. Repeat in the other side (= 4 stitches increased on round). On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles. Work lace pattern on sleeves and back piece. Work front piece in stockinette stitch.

YOKE:
Cast on 82-85-88-92-95-99 stitches on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit 1 round while increasing 6-3-0-8-17-13 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly) = 88-88-88-100-112-112 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece without working as follows: Insert a marker thread at beginning of round (= in transition between back piece and left sleeve), insert next marker thread after another 31-31-31-37-43-43 stitches, (= back piece), insert a marker thread after another 13 stitches (= right sleeve), insert a marker thread after another 31-31-31-37-43-43 stitches (= front piece), 13 stitches now remain after last marker thread for left sleeve.
Work pattern as follows: Knit 1, A.1 (= 2 stitches), A.2 over the next 24-24-24-30-36-36 stitches (= 4-4-4-5-6-6 repetitions of 6 stitches), A.3 (= 3 stitches), knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), A.1 (= 2 stitches), A.2 (= 6 stitches), A.3 (= 3 stitches), knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over, knit the next 29-29-29-35-41-41 stitches, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), A.1 (= 2 stitches), A.2 (= 6 stitches), A.3 (= 3 stitches), knit 1 (marker thread at beginning of round is here). First increase for RAGLAN - see explanation above, is now done. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Continue pattern in the round and increase every other round 17-20-22-24-26-28 times in total (including the first increase explained above = 224-248-264-292-320-336 stitches.
When all increases for raglan are done and round with arrow for your size in A.1 - A.3 has been worked, piece measures approx. 16-19-21-23-25-26 cm / 6 ¼"-7 3/8"-8 ¼"-9"-9 ¾"-10 ¼" from cast-on edge and down mid front on top.
Work next round as follows: Work next round in diagram (= knitted round) over the first 65-71-75-85-95-99 stitches, slip the next 47-53-57-61-65-69 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches in the side under sleeve, work in stockinette stitch as before over the next 65-71-75-85-95-99 stitches, slip the next 47-53-57-61-65-69 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches in the side under sleeve.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 146-158-170-190-214-226 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the new stitches cast-on under sleeves in each side (= 4-4-5-5-6-7 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Begin round in left side and continue pattern in the round as follows: Knit 6-3-6-2-5-2, continue A.2 over the next 60-72-72-90-96-108 stitches (= 10-12-12-15-16-18 repetitions of 6 stitches), knit 7-4-7-3-6-3 (marker thread in the side is here), knit the 73-79-85-95-107-113 stitches on front piece. Continue pattern in the round like this. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', increase 1 stitch on each side of marker thread in each side - READ INCREASE TIP-2. Increase like this every 4th round 17 times in total = 214-226-238-258-282-294 stitches. AT THE SAME TIME every time 6 new stitches are increased in each side work 2 repetitions more in width on back piece. Then knit the new stitches on front piece. When piece measures 36-35-35-35-35-36 cm / 14 1/8"-13 ¾"-13 ¾"-13 ¾"-13 ¾"-14 1/8", switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work 2 ridges. Bind off - make sure that the bind-off edge is not too tight. To avoid a tight bind-off edge you may use a needle ½ needle size larger.
Piece measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' from shoulder and down.

SLEEVES:
= 47-53-57-61-65-69 stitches. Slip the stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-10-10-12-14 new stitches cast on under sleeves = 55-61-67-71-77-83 stitches. Begin round mid under sleeve and work pattern in the round as follows: Knit 0-3-0-2-5-2, A.2 9-9-11-11-11-13 times in total (NOTE: Make sure that pattern on sleeve continues as before and to begin on correct round in pattern), knit 1-4-1-3-6-3. Continue in the round like this for 2 cm / 3/4''. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7. Work 2 ridges. Bind off - make sure that the bind-off edge is not too tight. To avoid a tight bind-off edge you may use a needle ½ needle size larger.

Hei Jeg strikker i str S, og jeg får ikke første økningene til raglan til å stemme på maskmakørene. Jeg treffer ikke på dem slik oppskriften tilsier. Jeg har en maske for lite. Er det en feil her i oppskriften, eller er det bare jeg sm driver å gjør feil? :)

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 11:22:

Hei Rikke. Du har 88 masker på pinnen, fordelt slik med merker mellom, 31 (bakstykke), 13 (erme), 31 (forstykke), 13 (erme). Du strikker bakstykket slik: 1 rett, A.1 (2 m), A.2 over 24 m, A.3 (3 m), 1 rett (merket sitter etter denne) = 31 m + 2 kast. Ermet strikkes slik: 1 rett, A.1, A.2, A.3, 1 rett (merket sitter etter denne) = 13 m + 2 kast. Forstykket: 1 rett, 1 kast, 29 rett, 1 kast, 1 rett (merket sitter etter denne) = 31 m + 2 kast. Siste erme strikkes som det første. Du har strikket over alle 88 m, og du har også økt 8 masker til raglan. God fornøyelse

Hi, this is a first time attempting a drops design pattern. I've inserted my marker threads but am now stuck at readingredients what to do next. Could someone explain it me please?

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 15:59:

Dear Toni, when the marker are inserted, work next round as follows: K1, A.1 (= 2 stitches), A.2 over the next 24-36 sts (see size = 4-6 repetitions of 6 sts), A.3 (= 3 sts), K2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 sts), A.1 (= 2 sts), A.2 (= 6 sts), A.3 (= 3 sts), K2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 sts), 1 YO, K 29-41 sts, 1 YO, K2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 sts), A.1 (= 2 sts), A.2 (= 6 sts), A.3 (= 3 sts), K11 (marker thread at beginning of round is here) = you have increased for the raglan for the first time, continue increasing as under RAGLAN every other round. Happy knitting!
