Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

See diagram A.1.

MOSS STITCH (double vertically):
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROUND 2: Knit over knit and purl over purl.
ROUND 3: Purl over knit and knit over purl.
ROUND 4: Repeat 2nd round.
Repeat rounds 1 to 4.

Increase 1 stitch on each side of every A.1 (= 8 stitches increased on round):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in moss stitch (double vertically).

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 74 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 5) = 14.8. 
In this example increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 15th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of stitch with marker as follows: Work until 4 stitches remain before marker and knit 2 together, work 4 stitches in moss stitch (= marker is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.




Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Work sleeves in the round on a short circular needle/double pointed needles. The entire piece is knitted in 3 strands Kid-Silk.

Cast on 68-72-76-76-80-88 stitches on a short circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand Kid-Silk of each colour (= 3 strands). Knit 1 round. Now work rib (= knit 2/purl 2) for 4 cm. Knit 1 round while increasing 6 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP (evenly) = 74-78-82-82-86-94 stitches. Purl 1 round. Switch to circular needle size 6 mm.

Now work pattern as follows: 8-9-10-10-11-13 stitches in MOSS STITCH (double vertically) – read explanation above, (= half back piece), make 1 yarn over, A.1 (= 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over, 8 stitches in moss stitch (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, 17-19-21-21-23-27 stitches in moss stitch (= front piece), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, 8 stitches in moss stitch (= sleeve), make 1 yarn over, A.1, make 1 yarn over, 9-10-11-11-12-14 stitches in moss stitch (= half back piece). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! First increase for RAGLAN - read explanation above, is now done = 82-86-90-90-94-102 stitches. Continue like this and increase every other round 22-23-25-27-29-31 times in total = 250-262-282-298-318-342 stitches. Continue until piece measures 27-29-31-33-34-36 cm from cast-on edge and down mid back.

Work next round as follows: Work as before over the first 33-35-38-40-43-47 stitches (= half back piece), cast on 5-5-7-7-9-9 new stitches on row (= in the side under sleeves), and slip the next 58-60-64-68-72-76 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), work the next 67-71-77-81-87-95 stitches (= front piece), cast on 5-5-7-7-9-9 new stitch on row (= in the side under sleeves), slip the next 58-60-64-68-72-76 stitches on a stitch holder (= sleeve), work the remaining 34-36-39-41-44-48 stitches (= half back piece). NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

= 144-152-168-176-192-208 stitches. Continue in the round with moss stitch (double vertically) as before until piece measures 36-36-36-36-37-37cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make a yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch while casting off (cast off yarn over as stitch) to make the cast-off edge more elastic. Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74-76-78 cm from shoulder and down.

Slip the 58-60-64-68-72-76 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on a short circular needle/double pointed needles size 6 mm and pick in addition up 1 new stitch in each of the 5-5-7-7-9-9 new stitches cast on in the side under sleeve = 63-65-71-75-81-85 stitches. Insert a marker in the middle of the 5-5-7-7-9-9 new stitches in the side under sleeves. Continue in moss stitch in the round. When piece measures 2 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd-2nd-1st round 4-9-4-11-24-1 times and every 4th-4th-3rd-3rd-3rd-2nd round 14-9-17-11-1-25 times = 27-29-29-31-31-33 stitches. Continue with moss stitch until piece measures 35-33-32-30-29-28 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider neck and longer yoke). Knit 1 round while increasing 5-7-7-9-9-11 stitches evenly = 32-36-36-40-40-44 stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm and work rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Sleeve measures approx. 39-37-36-34-33-32 cm. Work the other sleeve the same way.

= purl

Bonjour, Ce modèle peut-il être réalisé avec des aiguilles droites? Je ne sais pas tricoter avec des aiguilles circulaires et je ne trouve aucun modèle. Merci

DROPS Design 28.10.2018 kl. 10:46:

Bonjour Mme Guardiola, vous devez voir la lecon ICI. Bon tricot!

Wenche 17.10.2018 - 13:23:

Hei Jeg er ferdig med økning i ragland og det står at jeg skal fortsette til arbeidet måler 29 cm. Skal jeg da fortsette med mønster A1 til jeg deler av til ermer eller skal jeg bare strikke perlestrikk

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 10:13:

Hej Wenche, du fortsætter mønsteret til arbejdet måler 29 cm. God fornøjelse!

Grasset Edith 29.09.2018 - 20:49:

A la fin de l’empiècement, lorsqu'on monte les mailles de dessous de manche, les 6 mailles de A1 qui encadrent les manches sont elles comptabilisées avec les manches ou avec le dos et le devant. Continue t on de les faire A1 ou au point de ble. Merci

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 08:32:

Bonjour Mme Grasset, le dos et le devant se tricotent ensuite en rond, entièrement au point de blé, c'est-à-dire sans A.1. Bon tricot!

Valérie P. 18.09.2018 - 09:30:

Bonjour, J'en suis au dos/devant et vous dites de faire 36 cm et de rabattre les mailles en faisant un jeté toutes les 4 mailles. 1/ Expliquez moi ce que veut dire faire des jetés toutes les 4 mailles en rabattant? 2/ Si on rabat à 36cm, avec les 29cm de l'empiècement, le pull ne fait que 65cm et non 70cm? Merci pour les réponses cordialement

DROPS Design 18.09.2018 kl. 11:17:

Bonjour Valérie P., cette vidéo montre comment rabattre avec des jetés, soit ici: (rabattez 4 m, faites 1 jeté, rabattez le jeté comme une maille), répétez de (à) tout du long. La hauteur est indiquée depuis le rang de montage, posé à plat, le pull fera 5 cm de plus (épaules/encolure/raglan) cf schéma. Bon tricot!

Astrid 05.09.2018 - 16:03:

Jeg ønsker at strikke denne model som lang cardigan. Kan jeg strikke den frem og tilbage i stedet for rundt? mvh Astrid

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:23:

Hei Astrid. Denne modellen finnes som en cardigan her. Om du ønsker den lenger er det ikke noe i veien for at du strikker til ønsket lengde. Vær da obs på at garnmengden vil avvike fra oppskriften. God fornøyelse.
