EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 50 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 8.3.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approximately each 8th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
When decreasing, in this example, knit each 7th and 8th stitch together (approx.).

MOSS STITCH:
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-*.
ROUND 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit. Repeat round 2.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the 2 knitted stitches in each transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on round). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over.
On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
Then work the new stitches in moss stitch on the sleeves and in stocking stitch on the front and back pieces.

DECREASE TIP (for sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows: Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread, knit 3 together = 1 stitch (move marker thread to before this stitch).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down.
You can work an elevation in the back of the neck for a better fit, so that the yoke is slightly higher at the back. This elevation can be left out; the neck is then the same front and back – read description of elevation further down the text. After the yoke the body is worked in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

NECK:
Cast on 50-50-52-56-58-60 stitches with circular needle size 7 mm and 2 strands Air. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 1 / purl 1) for 3 cm. Knit 1 round where you increase 6-6-8-4-6-0 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 56-56-60-60-64-60 stitches. Change to circular needle size 8 mm. Now you can work an elevation in the back of the neck or go straight to 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 from the right side and knit 6-6-6-7-7-7 stitches past the marker, turn, tighten the strand and purl 12-12-12-14-14-14 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 18-18-18-21-21-21 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl 24-24-24-28-28-28 stitches. Turn, tighten the strand and knit 30-30-30-35-35-35 stitches, turn, tighten the strand and purl to mid back, then purl 10 stitches past the marker, turn. Start the next round (i.e. the yoke) here.

YOKE:
Insert 1 marker here - THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows (without working the stitches): Insert the first marker thread at the beginning of the round (= in transition between sleeve and back piece), 2nd marker thread is inserted after the next 19 stitches (= back piece), 3rd marker thread is inserted after the next 9-9-11-11-13-11 stitches (= sleeve) and 4th marker thread is inserted after the next 19 stitches (= front piece). There are 9-9-11-11-13-11 stitches left to the first marker thread (= sleeve).
The next round is worked as follows:
The round starts at the first marker thread, in the transition between sleeve and back piece. Knit 1, make 1 yarn over, work 17 stitches in stocking stitch (= back piece), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over, work 7-7-9-9-11-9 stitches MOSS STITCH – read description above (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over, work A.1 (= 17 stitches = front piece), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over, work 7-7-9-9-11-9 stitches in moss stitch (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, knit 1.
The first increase to RAGLAN – read description above, is now finished (= 8 stitches increased on the round). Continue this pattern and increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 15-17-18-19-20-22 times (including the first round described above). NOTE: When A.1 has been completed in height, work A.2 (= 21 stitches) over A.1. RepeatA.2 in height to finished length. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
After the last increase to raglan there are 180-196-208-216-228-240 stitches on the needle. Continue with pattern as before, without increases, until the piece measures 21-23-24-26-27-29 cm from the marker at the beginning of the yoke.
The next round is worked in pattern and stocking stitch as before as follows:
Work 50-54-57-60-63-68 stitches in stocking stitch (= on back piece), place the next 37-41-43-43-45-45 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 4-4-4-6-8-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), continue with stocking stitch and pattern as before over the next 55-59-63-67-71-77 stitches (= front piece), place the next 37-41-43-43-45-45 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 4-4-4-6-8-10 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the last 1-1-2-3-4-5 stitches in stocking stitch (= on back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 114-122-130-142-154-170 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle of the 4-4-4-6-8-10 new stitches cast on under the sleeve in each side. Start the round by one of the marker threads and allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards. Continue with stocking stitch and pattern A.2. When the piece measures 24-24-25-25-26-26 cm from the division (approx. 48-50-52-54-56-58 c­­m from the shoulder) knit 1 round where you increase 16-18-18-20-22-24 stitches evenly on round = 130-140-148-162-176-194 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 7 mm and work rib (= knit 1 / purl 1) for 4 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl – to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can cast off with a needle size 8 mm. The jumper measures approx. 52-54-56-58-60-62 cm from the shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Place the 37-41-43-43-45-45 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle or double pointed needles size 8 mm and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 4-4-4-6-8-10 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 41-45-47-49-53-55 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 4-4-4-6-8-10 stitches under the sleeve and start the round here. Work moss stitch. When the piece measures 2 cm from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4-3½-2½-3-2-2 cm a total of 7-8-9-9-11-11 times = 27-29-29-31-31-33 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 36-34-34-32-32-30 cm from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Knit 1 round where you increase 5 stitches evenly on round = 32-34-34-36-36-38 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 7 mm and work rib (=knit 1/ purl 1) for 5 cm. The sleeve measures approx. 41-39-39-37-37-35 from the division. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl - to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can cast off with a needle size 8 mm. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= KNIT 5 STITCHES TOGETHER AS FOLLOWS: Knit 5 stitches, slip them back onto the left needle, pass the next outermost stitch over the outermost stitch, so that it lies around the last stitch, repeat until all 4 stitches are passed over (= 4 stitches decreased), slip the last knitted stitch back onto the right needle.
= KNIT 5 STITCHES TWISTED TOGETHER AS FOLLOWS: Knit 5 stitches, pass the next to last knitted stitch over the last knitted stitch, so that this stitch lies around the last stitch, repeat until all 4 stitches are passed over (= 4 stitches decreased).

Hej! Jeg synes godt nok det er forvirrende forklaret med den her forhøjning i nakken. Jeg er nået til det sidste punkt i “FORHØJNING BAG I NAKKEN”, dvs.; jeg har netop strikket de 10 m vrang forbi mærket, og vendt....men hvad så? Det midterste af forhøjningen skal vel være lig med “midt bagpå”, men jeg synes bare ikke det stemmer overens med den videre forklaring og mærketrådene

Jag undrar om det finnes mønster till slätstickad rundstickad raglangens i garnet Drops Karisma? Jag har letat och letat på er nettsida men ej funnit något. Jag vill köpa garn och sätta igång. Ge råd.

DROPS Design 09.11.2018 kl. 10:58:

Hej Mona, ja alla här som står 20-21 maskor kan du sticka i DROPS Karisma tröja, dam, garngrupp B, raglan vill du ha till barn är det bara att kryssa bort Dam. Lycka till :)

Susanne Preisler 05.10.2018 - 18:34:

Prøver lige igen: ærmerne, man starter med 11 masker og med 2 raglanudtagninger x 22 =55. Hvad skal man gøre med de sidste 10 masker når det kun er 45 der skal sættes på en tråd til ærmet?

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:00:

Hei Susanne. 5 av erm-maskene i hver side (=10 masker per erme) strikkes som en del av forstykke/bakstykke etter at bærestykke er ferdig (altså de strikkes i glattstrikk. Følg forklaringen i oppskriften så blir det riktig: Strikk 68 masker glattstrikk (= bakstykke + 5 erm-masker), sett de neste 45 maskene på 1 tråd til erme, legg opp 10 nye masker, fortsett med glattstrikk og mønster som før over de neste 77 maskene (= forstykket + 5 erm-masker i hver side), sett de neste 45 maskene på 1 tråd til erme, legg opp 10 nye masker, strikk de siste 5 maskene i glattstrikk (= erm-masker som nå er bakstykke). God fornøyelse

Model cover str xxxl. Jeg kan ikke få maske antallet på ærmerne til at stemme. Der står jeg skal ende med 45 men jeg får 55.kan der være en fejl i opskriften? Mvh Susanne.

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 07:42:

Hei Susanne. Du skal begynne ermet med å ha 45 masker. Da bærestykke var ferdig satte du 45 masker på en tråd til erme (i hver side) - er det her du har for mange masker? i så fall har det blitt en feil med økningen til raglan (vi har sjekket over,og masketallet stemmer på bærestykke). Det første du skal gjøre når du strikker erme er å plukke opp 10 masker i de maskene som ble lagt opp under ermet = 55 masker. Siden du starter ermet øverst skal du felle mens du strikker nedover mot hånden og til vil ende opp med 33 masker, før du øker 5 masker rett før vrangborden. Så du ender altså med 38 masker, og strikker vrangbord over disse. God fornøyelse

¡ Qué pena que no esté en español !

Loved the pattern until I saw they were 2 strands of AIR. WHY....? I hate spending double $$$ when the pattern states 2 strands. I stay clear. Lets hope they are not all 2 strands...aghhhh

Eli Rognstad Bakken 13.06.2018 - 14:51:
