EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 76 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 8) = 9.5. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately every 9th and 10th stitch. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Work pattern in stockinette stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the garment losing elasticity when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle number when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the 4 marker threads in every transition between sleeves and body as follows: Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over (= 8 stitches increased on round). On next round knit yarns over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch. 

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. After yoke work body in the round on circular needle. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 76-80-84-88-92-96 stitches on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with heather. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 3 cm / 1''. Knit 1 round while increasing 8-8-8-12-12-12 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP = 84-88-92-100-104-108 stitches. Switch to circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9.

YOKE:
Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round = mid back. Work A.1 in the round (= 21-22-23-25-26-27 repetitions of 4 stitches) - read PATTERN and KNITTING TIP above. Continue A.1 as shown in diagram. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked, there are 252-264-276-300-312-324 stitches on round and piece measures approx. 23 cm from cast-on edge mid front.

SIZE S:
Continue with stockinette stitch and wheat without increases until piece measures 24 cm from cast-on edge mid front.

SIZE M - L - XL - XXL - XXXL:
Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches first:
Insert first marker thread after the first 40-41-45-48-52 stitches (= half back piece), insert 2nd marker thread after the next 52-56-60-60-58 stitches (= sleeve), insert 3rd marker thread after the next 80-82-90-96-104 stitches (= front piece), and insert 4th marker thread after the next 52-56-60-60-58 stitches (= sleeve), 40-41-45-48-52 stitches remain on round after last marker (= half back piece). Work in stockinette stitch with wheat in the round, AT THE SAME TIME on first round begin increase for RAGLAN – read explanation above. Increase for raglan every 4th round 1-2-2-3-4 times in total. After last increase for raglan there are 272-292-316-336-356 stitches on needle. Continue with stockinette stitch without increases until piece measures 26-27-29-31-33 cm / 10 ¼"-10 5/8"-11 3/8"-12 1/8"-13" from cast-on edge mid front.

ALL SIZES:
Then work with wheat until finished measurements. Work next round in stockinette stitch as follows: Work 38-41-43-47-51-56 stitches (= half back piece), slip the next 50-54-60-64-66-66 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work 76-82-86-94-102-112 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 50-54-60-64-66-66 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the last 38-41-43-47-51-56 stitches (= half back piece). Finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 164-176-188-204-224-244 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches that were cast on under sleeve in one of the sides and begin round from here. Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 28-28-29-29-29-29 cm / 11"-11"-11 3/8"-11 3/8"-11 3/8"-11 3/8" from division, work 1 round while increasing 28-28-32-32-36-40 stitches evenly = 192-204-220-236-260-284 stitches.
Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 3 cm / 1''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl (to avoid a tight bind-off edge use needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9). Sweater measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm / 22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26''-26¾'' from shoulder.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 50-54-60-64-66-66 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on circular needle/double pointed needles SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 56-60-68-72-76-76 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches under sleeve and begin round here. Work in stockinette stitch in the round. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' from division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3½-3-2-2-1½-1½ cm/1 1/4"-1 1/8"-3/4"-3/4"-½"-½" 10-12-15-16-17-16 times in total = 36-36-38-40-42-44 stitches. Continue until piece measures 39-37-37-35-33-32 cm / 15 ¼"-14 ½"-14 ½"-13 ¾"-13"-12 ½" from division (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of longer yoke). Knit 1 round while increasing 4-4-2-4-2-4 stitches evenly = 40-40-40-44-44-48 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 3 cm / 1''. Sleeve measures approx. 42-40-40-38-36-35 cm / 16 ½"-15 ¾"-15 ¾"-14 7/8"-14 1/8"-13 ¾" from division. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl (to avoid a tight bind-off edge use needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9). Work the other sleeve the same way.

Hi there are errors in the pattern on Size M L XL XXL XXXL and next section All sizes. There are 5 sizes but the print has 6 throwing size number out. I am at this stage and would appreciate an amendment. Thank you.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 08:27:

Dear Mrs Hotchman, if you are working size S, this section doesn't apply = you continue working with wheat whithout increasing until piece measures 24 cm. Then go to the section ALL SIZES. If you are working on of the 5 larger sizes, just work as explained under this section then go the the section ALL SIZES. Happy knitting!

Elena 29.01.2019 - 00:31:

Se puede hacer este modelo con elevación en el cuello? Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 29.01.2019 kl. 08:59:

Querida Elena, si, tu puedes hacerlo. Cordiales saludos!

Bettina 17.01.2019 - 20:26:

Hallo, ich glaube, die maschenzahlen wurden vertauscht! Im Abschnitt „Grösse M...“ muss ich vier Markierungen setzen und dann gesamt 16 Maschen zunehmen. Im nächsten Abschnitt „ alle Grössen“ sollte ich die Maschen für die Ärmel stilllegen, dort sind es aber weniger Maschen, es kann nicht aufgehen. Bitte überprüfen und ändern, danke euch!

DROPS Design 18.01.2019 kl. 09:24:

Liebe Bettina, in der Grösse M setzen Sie die 4 Markierer (mit 1. nach 40 M., 2. nach 52 M usw dann nehmen Sie 1 M auf beiden Seiten jeder Markierung zu (= 8 M werden zugenommen), Sie hatten davor 264 M + 8 M = 272 M. Dann stricken Sie die ersten 41 M = die 40 M + 1 Zunahme (= 1/2 Rückenteil), die nächsten 54 M (= 52 + 2 Zunahmen) legen Sie für den Ärmel still, usw. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Elisabeth Mulbjerg 14.01.2019 - 22:17:

Hej. \r\nKan denne opskrift strikkes i garntype Merino Extra fine.\r\nHvis den kan, vil jeg gerne have hjælp til str. . Skal jeg evt. Strikke i en større størrelse. F.eks. Jeg vil strikke i str. M i drops air.

DBarrot 20.12.2018 - 21:12:

Hallo Nach dem Muster A1 Gr.S habe ich nun 252 Maschen auf der Nadel. Weiter heisst es Gr.S bis glatt rechts stricken bis 24 cm. Dann kommt die Aufteilung für die 4 Mark.Fäden der Gr. M-XXXL. Können sie mir noch die Aufteilung für Gr.S sagen die finde ich nicht. Herzlichen Dank Doris

DROPS Design 21.12.2018 kl. 07:59:

Liebe Doris, in der Grösse S stricken Sie bis die Arbeit 24 cm mist, dann teilen Sie die Arbeit für die Ärmel wie unter ALLE GRÖSSEN beschrieben ist = 38 M für halbes Rückenteil stricken, 50 M für den Ärmel stilllegen, usw... Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Miriam 14.12.2018 - 14:33:

Hallo, in welcher Reihenfolge muss die Anleitung gearbeitet werden? Ich stricke Gr. M und habe 264 Maschen. Nehme ich jetzt erst die Raglanzunahmen, dann passt die Aufteilung der Maschen ( 41,56,82,56,41=276)nicht, oder arbeite ich erst mit dem Stilllegen der Ärmelmaschen ( 41,54,+6,82,54,+6)und der Zunahme der 6 Maschen. Laut Anleitung fehlen mir dann aber wieder Maschen. Vielen Dank für die Hilfe, Miriam

DROPS Design 14.12.2018 kl. 15:01:

Liebe Miriam, nach A.1 stricken Sie jetzt die Raglanzunahmen = 1 M auf beiden seiten jeder Markierer (siehe RAGLANZUNAHMEN) - die Markierer sind nach 40 M (1/2 Rückenteil), 2. nach 52 weitere M (=Ärmel), 3. nach 80 weitere M (Vorderteil), 4. nach 42 weitere M (= Ärmel) - Es wird dann 1 x zugenommen: 264 M + 8 Zunahmen = 272 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mui 03.11.2018 - 01:43:

Hi, still need your guidance. I am doing size m. So, I stopped at mid-back. Cut the yarn. Do I slip the 54 stitches and the 3 cast-on from the left needle to the right needle and start from this point. Is there a video tutorial for this part? Thanks!

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:33:

Dear Mrs Mui, the 54 sts for sleeves should be already on a thread on each side and you have cast on 8 sts above the sts on the treads. Starting on mid back (end of this round), slip the first 41 sts (= half back piece) on the right needle without working them, slip the first 4 new sts you cast on the same way, and rounds will now start here, in the middle of the 8 new sts cast on over sleeve. Happy knitting!

Mui 02.11.2018 - 03:22:

Hi, I need help at this part. Body: 164-176-188-204-224-244 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 6-6-8-8-10-10 new stitches that were cast on under sleeve in one of the sides and begin round from here. Does this mean I stop at mid-back. Cut the yarn and my starting point now is the mid under sleeve cast on?

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 07:57:

Dear Mrs Mui, yes correct, after having divided piece for sleeve, cut the yarn and start body at one of the markers on the side. Happy knitting!
