EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 54 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 9. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 9th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
When decreasing, knit together each 8th and 9th stitch (in this example).

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

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the 2 knitted stitches in each transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on the 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 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, purl 3 together. In this way, 3 stitches become 1 stitch; then move the marker thread to the stitch 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. After the yoke the body is continued in the round with circular needle. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles.

YOKE
Cast on 54-54-58-62-64-68 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Air. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 1) for 3 cm. Knit 1 round where you increase 6-6-6-6-8-16 stitches evenly – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 60-60-64-68-72-84 stitches. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm.
Insert 1 marker here - THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Now insert 4 marker threads (without working the stitches) as follows: Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round (= in transition between sleeve and back piece), 1 marker thread after 21-21-23-25-25-31 stitches (= back piece), 1 marker thread after 9-9-9-9-11-11 more stitches (= sleeve), 1 marker thread after 21-21-23-25-25-31 more stitches (= front piece). There are 9-9-9-9-11-11 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 19-19-21-23-23-29 stitches in stocking stitch (= back piece), 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over, work 7-7-7-7-9-9 stitches in MOSS STITCH – see description above (= sleeve), 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over, work 1-1-2-3-3-6 stitches in stocking stitch, work A.1 (= 17 stitches = front piece), 1-1-2-3-3-6 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 1 yarn over, work 7-7-7-7-9-9 stitches in moss stitch (= sleeve), 1 yarn over and knit 1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
The first increase to RAGLAN – read description above, is now finished (= 8 stitches increased on the round). Continue with this pattern and increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 13-14-15-16-17-17 times (including the first increase described above). NOTE: When A.1 has been completed in height, work A.2 (= 21 stitches) over A.1. Repeat A.2 in height to finished length.
After the last increase to raglan there are 168-176-188-200-212-224 stitches on the needle. Continue with pattern as before, but without increasing, until the piece measures 13-14-15-16-17-18 cm from the marker at the beginning of the yoke.
The next round is worked in pattern and stocking stitch as before, but start the round 1 stitch earlier (before the 2 stitches in stocking stitch between sleeve and back piece). Work stocking stitch over 49-51-55-59-61-67 stitches (= back piece), place the next 33-35-37-39-43-43 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 4-4-4-6-6-6 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), continue with stocking stitch and pattern over the next 53-55-59-63-65-71 stitches (= front piece), place the next 33-35-37-39-43-43 stitches on a thread (= the other sleeve), cast on 4-4-4-6-6-6 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
There are now 110-114-122-134-138-150 stitches on the needle. Continue with stocking stitch and pattern A.2 in the round as before. When the piece measures 16-19-22-25-28-31 cm from the division knit 1 round where you increase 10-12-14-16-18-20 stitches evenly on round = 120-126-136-150-156-170 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work rib (= knit 1 / purl 1) for 4 cm. Loosely 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 5.5 mm. Cut and fasten the strand.

SLEEVE:
Place the stitches from the thread on one side of the piece onto short circular needle/double pointed needle size 5.5 mm (= 33-35-37-39-43-43 stitches). Knit up 1 stitch in each of the 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 37-39-41-45-49-49 stitches.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of these 4-4-4-6-6-6 stitches 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 2½-3-3½-4-4½-5½ cm a total of 6-6-7-7-7-7 times = 25-27-27-31-35-35 stitches. Continue working until the sleeve measures 18-22-26-30-34-38 cm from the division. Knit 1 round where you increase 2-2-2-2-2-2 stitches in all sizes = 27-29-29-33-37-37 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and work rib (knit 1 / purl 1) for 4 cm. Loosely 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 5.5 mm. Cut and fasten the strand.

Work the other sleeve in the same way.

= KNIT 5 STITCHES TOGETHER AS FOLLOWS: Knit 5, pass them back to the left needle, pass the next outermost stitch over the outermost stitch so that it lies around this stitch, repeat until all 4 stitches have been passed over (= 4 stitches decreased), move the last knitted stitch back onto the right needle.

Mi consulta es la medida del raglán, 18 cm en la talla más grande, se toma en forma oblicua \, o recto ? Saludos

Jeg skal strikke Model ai-014-bn. Den sidste pind i diagram A1 hvor er de 2 masker hende i begge sider? og når jeg strikke de 4 omslag øges maskkeantallet. Jeg er godt med på at jeg skal fortsætte med A2. Håber at høre fra jer på forhånd tak. Vh Lotte

Hei Liselotte. Strikkediagrammene lese nedenfra og opp, fra høyre mot venstre. Det er altså på første pinne at du har 17 masker, og øker 4 masker (sorte ovaler) slik at på pinne 2 har du 21 masker (2 masker mer i hver side). Du kan lesemer om hvordan du leser strikkediagrammer her. God fornøyelse

Hei ! Mønster A1: Når raden med 8 huller er ferdig, altså 21 masker og tre omganger etter den. Så begynner en ny rapport som skal bli 17 masker. Jeg har strikka mye i mitt lange liv. Dette får jeg ikke til. Hilsen BM

DROPS Design 27.04.2019 kl. 15:13:

Hei Betty, Når du er ferdig med A.1 skal du strikke A.2 fram til ferdig mål. God fornøyelse!
