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 stocking stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

JUMPER - 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 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. Knit 1 round.
The next round is worked as follows: Work stocking stitch over the first 15-16-17-19-20-21 stitches (= half back piece), 1 yarn over, 2 stitches in stocking stitch, work A.1 over 21 stitches (= sleeve), 2 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over, work 30-32-34-38-40-42 stitches in stocking stitch (= front piece), 1 yarn over, 2 stitches stocking stitch, work A.1 over 21 stitches (= sleeve), 2 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over, work stocking 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 stocking stitch in each side (there will be 2 stitches stocking stitch between each raglan increase). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted (= no holes) and the increased stitches are worked in stocking 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 TENSION! 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 from the cast-on edge mid front.
Continue with stocking 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 stocking 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 stocking stitch and A.6 (= 2 stitches).
Continue until the piece measures approx. 23-25-26-28-30-32 cm from the cast-on edge mid front.
The next round is worked as follows: Work 41-45-49-54-59-65 stitches in stocking 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 stocking 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 stocking 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 stocking stitch. When the piece measures 2 cm 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 a total of 4 times = 168-184-204-224-248-272 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 14 cm 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 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 from the division. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work 2 ridges. Loosely cast off, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with needle size 4 mm. The jumper measures approx. 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm 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 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 stocking 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 stocking stitch. Continue this pattern. When the piece measures 2 cm 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 stocking 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 from the division (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke). Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work 2 ridges. Loosely cast off, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can cast off with needle size 4 mm. Sleeve measures approx. 22-20-20-18-16-15 cm from the division. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Jag stickar ovanstående, stickar med stickor 4,5 och antal varv på 10 cm stämmer inte, får fler varv. Ska jag göra raglanen längre eller..? Om jag ska sticka 23 cm innan jag delar får jag sticka raglanen rak, utan ökning, många cm.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 11:36:

hei Ketti. Stemmer strikkefastheten din i bredden? Hvis ikke vil de endelige målene på plagget bli annerledes (både lengde og bredde). Juster eventuelt pinnestørrelsen slik at du oppnår den angitte strikkefastheten. Om det kun er høyden som ikke stemmer, kan du kompensere for dette ved å strikke flere omganger. Det gjør ingenting om du strikker noen centimeter uten raglanøkning (etter at økningene er ferdige) før du deler arbeidet til bol og ermer. God fornøyelse

Genevieve 03.02.2019 - 17:32:

Est il possible de le faire en commençant par le bas et pas en rond ? Merci

DROPS Design 03.02.2019 kl. 23:44:

Bonjour Genvieve. Cela est possible, mais le modele necessitera beaucoup de transformations. Contactez le magasin ou vous achetez la laine pour l'aide, ou bien essayez de faire le modele tel qu'il est avec nos instructions video et lecons. Bon travail!

Elke 03.02.2019 - 10:33:

Die Maße auf der Skizze für den Brustumfang beziehungsweise früh das Rumpfteil, sind die um den ganzen Oberkörper gemessen?Oder nur über das Vorderteil?

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 12:09:

Liebe Elke, hier lesen Sie wie man die Massen lesen soll, dh z.B. in der 1. Grösse hat man 88 cm Brustumfang. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Josi 01.02.2019 - 09:22:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, ich habe eine Frage zur Garnqualität: ich bin sehr empfindlich was das Kratzen angeht. Ist die Drops Sky für mich geeignet? LG

DROPS Design 01.02.2019 kl. 14:29:

Liebe Josi, am besten wenden Sie sie direkt an Ihrem DROPS Laden, sie werden Ihnen den besten passenden Garn empfehlen - auch telefonisch oder per Email. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Laura Cavallari 27.01.2019 - 17:34:

Buongjorno, ho messo il segnapunto di inizio giro a metà del dietro e se passo dal dritto al rovescio (ultime maglie a LEGACCIO) mi rimane lo scalino, come posso evitarlo?

DROPS Design 27.01.2019 kl. 21:47:

Buonasera Laura. Può provare a stringere un po' la prima maglia del giro. Il passaggio tra un giro e l'altro resta sempre un po' visibile. Buon lavoro!

Anna 27.01.2019 - 08:51:

E' possible lavorarlo con Cotton Merino? Il risultato quale può essere?

DROPS Design 27.01.2019 kl. 13:19:

Buongiorno Anna, i due filati appartengono allo stesso gruppo, quindi può lavorarlo con Cotton Merino seguendo le stesse istruzioni. Controlli il campione prima di iniziare. Potrebbe risultare un po' meno soffice, ma manterrà la struttura. Buon lavoro

FEVELYN LAS 25.01.2019 - 06:32:
