EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge in height = 2 rounds; knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 100 stitches), and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 10) = 10.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after each 10th stitch. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Find your size in the diagrams (applies to A.3 to A.5). The diagrams show all rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (for sides of body and sleeves):
Work until there are 3 stitches left before marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these stitches), slip 1 stitch, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP-2 (for sides of body):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 4 (marker thread sits in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over. On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Yoke and body are worked in the round with circular needle from mid back, top down. Sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

YOKE:
Cast on 100-106-110-116-120-126 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and Sky. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above. Knit 1 round where you increase 10-8-8-10-10-8 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP-1 = 110-114-118-126-130-134 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6. Knit 1 round.
The next round is worked as follows: Work stockinette stitch over the first 15-16-17-19-20-21 stitches (= half back piece), 1 yarn over, 2 stitches in stockinette stitch, work A.1 over 21 stitches (= sleeve), 2 stitches in stockinette stitch, 1 yarn over, work 30-32-34-38-40-42 stitches in stockinette stitch (= front piece), 1 yarn over, 2 stitches stockinette stitch, work A.1 over 21 stitches (= sleeve), 2 stitches in stockinette stitch, 1 yarn over, work stockinette stitch over the last 15-16-17-19-20-21 stitches (= half back piece). There are now 118-122-126-134-138-142 stitches on the needle.
Continue this pattern onwards; i.e. on the sleeves increase on each side as shown in A.1. On the next round knit the yarn overs (= holes) and the increased stitches are worked into the pattern as you go as shown in A.1. On front and back pieces increase with yarn overs before/after the 2 stitches in stockinette stitch in each side (there will be 2 stitches stockinette stitch between each raglan increase). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted (= no holes) and the increased stitches are worked in stockinette stitch. Increase like this every 2nd round. You increase a total of 8 stitches on each increase-round (= 4 yarn overs + 4 stitches increased in A.1). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height there are 230-234-238-246-250-254 stitches on the needle.
Continue this pattern onwards, i.e. the pattern repeats itself as shown in A.1. Each time you have worked 20 rounds there will be room for 1 more repeat of lace pattern in width on each sleeve.
When you have increased a total of 24-27-29-32-34-38 times there are 302-330-350-382-402-438 stitches on the needle and the piece measures 18-20-22-24-25-28 cm = 7”-8”-8 3/4”-9 1/2”-9 3/4”-11” from the cast-on edge mid front.
Continue with stockinette stitch and pattern as before, but without increasing; i.e. the 69-75-79-85-89-97 stitches in A.1 are worked as follows: Work A.2 (= 2 stitches), 2-0-2-0-2-1 stitches in stockinette stitch, starting on the round marked with an arrow for your size work A.3 (= 10 stitches), A.4 over the next 40-50-50-60-60-70 stitches (= 4-5-5-6-6-7 reports of 10 stitches), A.5 (= 11 stitches), 2-0-2-0-2-1 stitches in stockinette stitch and A.6 (= 2 stitches).
Continue until the piece measures approx. 23-25-26-28-30-32 cm = 9”-9 3/4”-10 1/4”-11”-11 3/4”-12 1/2” from the cast-on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 41-45-49-54-59-65 stitches in stockinette stitch (= half back piece), place the next 69-75-77-83-83-89 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work 82-90-98-108-118-130 stitches stockinette stitch (= front piece), place the next 69-75-77-83-83-89 stitches on 1 thread for sleeve, cast on 10-10-12-12-14-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 41-45-49-54-59-65 stitches in stockinette stitch (= half back piece). Body and sleeves are finished separately. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 184-200-220-240-264-288 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread on each side in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches cast on under each sleeve. Allow them to follow your work onwards; they will be used a little later when decreasing/increasing. Work stockinette stitch. When the piece measures 2 cm = 3/4” from the division decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads - read DECREASE TIP = 4 stitches decreased. Decrease like this every 3 cm = 1 1/8” a total of 4 times = 168-184-204-224-248-272 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 14 cm = 5 1/2” from the division. Now increase 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read INCREASE TIP-2 = 4 stitches increased. Increase like this every 2 cm = 3/4” a total of 7 times = 196-212-232-252-276-300 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 30-30-31-31-31-31 cm = 11 3/4”-11 3/4”-12 1/4”-12 1/4”-12 1/4”-12 1/4” from the division. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and work 2 ridges. Loosely bind off, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with needle size 4 mm = US 6. The sweater measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm = 22 3/4”-23 5/8”-24 3/8”-25 1/4”-26”-26 3/4” from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 69-75-77-83-83-89 stitches from the thread on the one side of the piece on short circular needle/double pointed needles size 4 mm = US 6 and knit up 1 stitch in each of the 10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 79-85-89-95-97-103 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 10-10-12-12-14-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve and allow it to follow your work onwards; it will be used a little later when decreasing. Start the round at the marker thread. Start on the correct round in the diagrams so that the pattern continues from the yoke and work as follows: Work 4-2-4-2-3-1 stitches in stockinette stitch, A.3 (= 10 stitches), A.4 over the next 50-60-60-70-70-80 stitches (= 5-6-6-7-7-8 repeats of 10 stitches), A.5 (= 11 stitches) and 4-2-4-2-3-1 stitches in stockinette stitch. Continue this pattern. When the piece measures 2 cm = 3/4” from the division, decrease 2 stitches mid under sleeve – remember DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 3rd-3rd-3rd-2nd-2nd-2nd round a total of 14-15-15-16-15-16 times = 51-55-59-63-67-71 stitches. The stitches which do not fit into the pattern as you decrease are worked in stockinette stitch, but make sure that if decreases are in the pattern you also make a yarn over. Continue working until the piece measures 21-19-19-17-15-14 cm = 8 1/4”-7 1/2”-7 1/2”-6 3/4”-6”-5 1/2” from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm = US 4 and work 2 ridges. Loosely bind off, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight you can bind off with needle size 4 mm = US 6. Sleeve measures approx. 22-20-20-18-16-15 cm = 8 3/4”-8”-8”-7”-6 1/4”-6” from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Strikkefastheden er opgivet til 21 m. i bredden og 28 p. i højden = 10x10 cm i glat strik, men ikke hvilken str. pind ?

Natacha 04.07.2019 - 16:39:

Histoire de manche suite:alors pour celles que ça intéresse ,j'ai tricoté les manches sans diminutions,juste au niveau du poignet diminution d'un coup de 30 mailles , 2 rangs côte mousse et voilà .Résultat : canon,mais c'est vrai que ça change l'esprit de cet ouvrage, c'est autre chose avec des manches bouffantes,j'aime bien ce côté romantique ...

Natacha 26.06.2019 - 11:49:

Je tricote la taille S . Perso,je termine la première manche , c'est , à mon avis trop serré .Ça ne rend pas comme sur la photo.J'envisage : détricotage Arggg !!! jusqu’au 2 cm après la séparation et faire la manche sans diminution , carrément .Je dirai le résultat .

Mona 23.06.2019 - 09:29:

Forstår ikke helt at hver udtagning er på 8 masker og så står der at når jeg har taget ud 27 gange ( m) har jeg 330 masker og når jeg har taget ud 29 gange (l) så har jeg 350 maske . Jeg er nemlig nødt til at skifte størrelse her fra m til l

DROPS Design 27.06.2019 kl. 10:09:

Hei Mona. Før økingene til raglan begynner har du 114 masker på pinnen i størrelse M. Så skal du øke 8 masker totalt 27 ganger (altså inkludert første økningen, som er forklart i oppskriften). 8 x 27 = 216 masker økt. 114 + 216 = 330 masker på pinnen. Det samme gjelder størrelse L: du har 118 masker før økningene, så øker du 8 masker 29 ganger (= 232 masker økt), og du har da 350 masker på pinnen. God fornøyelse.

Maritha Magnusson 21.05.2019 - 08:59:

Hej igen. Är det rätt att det blir en vriden maska och 2slätstickade maskor och en inte vriden på armen i början av ärmen. Eller är det vanlig raglan med vriden två slätstickning och en vriden. Den senare bör väl vara ej vriden så det blir hål på ärmen.

DROPS Design 22.05.2019 kl. 07:52:

Hej. Vid raglanökningen stickas omslagen på ärmarna räta (=hål) på nästa varv, och omslagen på fram- och bakstycket stickas vridet räta (=inte hål) på nästa varv. Lycka till!

Carola Reise-Einig 20.05.2019 - 14:19:

Wo kann man die Anleitungshefte kaufen? Gruß

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 14:49:

Liebe Frau Reise-Einig, Anleitungshefte haben wir keine mehr, Anleitung können Sie gratis hier drücken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Maritha Magnusson 08.05.2019 - 23:34:

Undrar vad som menas med att de lyfta maskorna stickas vridna. Är det de lyfta maskorna på ärmen som stickas vridna var fjärde varv och ej vridna vartannat varv. Eller gäller detta maskorna som lyfts för raglan på fram och bakstycke?

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 13:08:

Hej. Omslagen ska stickas vridna när du ökar i början av oket (där det står läs ÖKNINGSTIPS-1) och vid sidorna på fram- och bakstycket (där det står läs ÖKNINGSTIPS-2), dvs där det inte ska bli hål. Lycka till!

Marleen Lowel 23.04.2019 - 23:12:

Wil mouw verder breien. Heb 83 steken van mouw en 12 steken opgenomen van opgezette steken. Dan heb ik een markeerder gestoken in helft van opgenomen steken: dus 6 ervoor en 6 erna. Volgens jullie beschrijving moeten we beginnen in helft van opgenomen steken: dus 6 vóór de mouwsteken. 2 rechts en dan A3. Als ik dit doe, kom ik niet gelijk met het patroon: de averechtse steken vallen niet meer boven elkaar. Wat doe ik verkeerd? Bedankt voor jullie hulp.

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 16:56:

Dag Marleen,

Ik heb het patroon gecontroleerd en je zou precies uit moeten komen met het patroon en de averechte steken. Je begint in het midden van de 12 steken onder de mouw. Tel evt. alles nog even goed na. Misschien heb je wat over het hoofd gezien.

Martha 30.03.2019 - 14:53:

Met welke lengte naald nr 3.5 kan ik het best bij de pas beginnen? Er staan 2 lengtes hierboven vermeld, maar er staat nergens in het patroon waar je welke het best kunt gebruiken.

DROPS Design 31.03.2019 kl. 11:31:

Dag Martha,

Je kunt hiervoor het beste die van 40 cm gebruiken. Als de steken niet meer goed op de naald passen, stap je over op 80 cm.

Renate 26.03.2019 - 11:01:

Sorry, das habe ich nicht verstanden, in der Anleitung steht es anders (da fehlen A2 und A6): „...und wie folgt stricken: 4-2-4-2-3-1 Maschen glatt rechts, A.3 (= 10 Maschen), A.4 über die nächsten 50-60-60-70-70-80 Maschen (= 5-6-6-7-7-8 Rapporte à 10 Maschen), A.5 (= 11 Maschen) und 4-2-4-2-3-1 Maschen glatt rechts“ Wenn ich die erste Reihe mit A5 beende, dann sind noch 7 M übrig (5 neue M und 2 von A6). Wie stricke ich die? Fallen A2 und A6 jetzt weg?

DROPS Design 26.03.2019 kl. 12:18:

Liebe Renate, A.2 wird jetzt nicht mehr gestrickt. Von der mitte unter den Ärmel (5 M) stricken Sie: 2 M rechts, A.3 (= die 3 letzten der 5 neuen Maschen + die 2 M von A.2 + die 2 M die bei der Passe glatt gestrickt wurden + die 5 nächsten Maschen = 10 M), dann wiederholen Sie A.4 und mit A.5 und 2 Maschen glatt enden. Setzen Sie neuen Markierer zwischen jedem Rapport, es kann so immer helfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
