EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 110 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 18.3.
In this example, decrease by knitting together approx. each 17th and 18th stitch.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for body and sleeves):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of A.4 as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before A.4, knit 2 together, work A.4, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the sipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 82 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 4) = 20.5.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 20th stitch and each 21st stitch. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the 3 knitted stitches in each transition between body and sleeves (= 8 stitches increased on round). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stockinette stitch on the sleeves and in pattern on front and back pieces.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SWEATER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The sleeves are worked in the round with short circular needle/double pointed needles, top down.

SWEATER:
NECK:
Cast on 105-110-115-120-130-135 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 and Belle. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (knit 3, purl 2) for 2 cm = 3/4”. Knit 1 round where you decrease 1-6-3-8-2-7 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 104-104-112-112-128-128 stitches.

YOKE:
Change to circular needle size 4 mm = US 6. Work PATTERN – read description above, as follows: * Insert a marker thread here, knit 2, 1 yarn over, work A.1 over the next 3-3-5-5-7-7 stitches, A.2a over the next 14-14-14-14-16-16 stitches, A.2b over the next 11-11-11-11-13-13 stitches, A.3 over the next 3-3-5-5-7-7 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit 2 and insert a marker thread here (= back/front piece), knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 15 , 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= sleeve) *, work from *-* 1 more time on the round. You have increased 8 stitches to RAGLAN – read description above. Continue this pattern in the round and increase to raglan every 2nd round a total of 24-26-29-32-35-38 times = 296-312-344-368-408-432 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE. When A.1 to A.3 have been completed in height, continue the pattern in the same way; i.e. work A.1/A.3 towards each raglan on front/back piece; there is room for 2 more repeats of A.2a in width. When all the increases to raglan are finished, the piece measures approx. 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm from the cast-on edge and down mid front. The next round is worked as follows: NOTE: in sizes S and L the piece is now divided for sleeves and body at the marker threads. In sizes M, XL, XXL and XXXL work a few stitches (= 1-2-1-3 stitches) from the sleeves onto the needle for the body, so that the transition between body and sleeves is no longer by the marker threads: Work the first 83-88-97-105-118-126 stitches, place the next 65-67-75-77-85-87 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-10-12-12-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve), work the next 83-89-97-107-119-129 stitches, place the next 65-67-75-77-85-87 stitches on a thread (= sleeve), cast on 8-10-12-12-12-14 new stitches on the needle (= in side under sleeve) and work the remaining 0-1-0-2-1-3 stitches on the round. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 182-198-218-238-262-286 stitches. Work pattern A.4 (= 8 stitches) over the middle 8 stitches under the sleeves and continue with as many repeats of lace pattern in A.2a/A.2b as there is room for out towards the sides (the pattern should be directly over the pattern on the yoke!) and the remaining stitches are worked in stockinette stitch.
When the piece measures 4 cm = 1 1/2” decrease 1 stitch on each side of A.4 on each side – read DECREASE TIP-2 = 178-194-214-234-258-282 stitches. When the piece measures 15 cm = 6” – adjust so that you finish after a complete repeat of lace pattern in height (or a few rounds of stockinette stitch if necessary) knit 1 round where you increase 27-31-36-41-47-48 stitches evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP = 205-225-250-275-305-330 stitches. Change to circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5. Work rib (knit 3, purl 2) for 2 cm = 3/4”. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure the bind-off edge is not tight; you can increases a needle size when binding off if this is a problem. The sweater measures approx. 40-42-44-46-48-50 cm = 15 3/4”-16 1/2”-17 1/4”-18”-19”-19 3/4” from the shoulder down.

SLEEVE:
Place the 65-67-75-77-85-87 stitches from the thread on 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 8-10-12-12-12-14 stitches under the sleeve = 73-77-87-89-97-101 stitches. Continue in the round with stockinette stitch and work A.4 over the middle 8 stitches under the sleeve. When the piece measures 4-4-3-3-3-2 cm = 1 1/2”-1 1/2”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8”-3/4” decrease 2 stitches under the sleeve - remember DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease in the different sizes as follows:
Size S: Decrease like this alternately every 2 and 3 cm = 3/4” and 1 1/8” a total of 11 times.
Size M: Decrease like this every 2 cm = 1 1/8” a total of 12 times.
Size L: Decrease like this on every 1.5 cm = 1/2” a total of 16 times.
Size XL: Decrease like this every 1.5 cm = 1/2” a total of 16 times.
Size XXL: Decrease like this every cm = 3/8” a total of 19 times.
Size XXXL: Decrease like this every cm = 3/8” a total of 20 times.
When all the decreases are finished there are 51-53-55-57-59-61 stitches on the needles. Continue working until the sleeve measures 32-30-29-27-25-23 cm = 12 1/2”-11 3/4”-11 3/8”-10 5/8”-9 3/4”-9”. Now increase 4-7-5-8-6-9 stitches evenly spaced = 55-60-60-65-65-70 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm = US 2,5. Work rib (knit 3, purl 2) for 2 cm = 3/4”. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure the bind-off edge is not tight; you can increases a needle size when binding off if this is a problem. The sleeve measures approx. 34-32-31-29-27-25 cm = 12 3/8”-12 1/2”-12 1/4”-11 3/8”-10 5/8”-9 3/4”. Work the other sleeve in the same way.

Diagram

All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
= Knot: Knit 1 in both front and back of same stitch until you have increased from 1 to 5 stitches. The 5 stitches are on the right needle. Pass stitch 2 (the next outermost stitch on right needle) over the outermost stitch, pass stitch 3 over the outermost stitch, pass stitch 4 over the outermost stitch and pass stitch 5 over the outermost stitch (= 1 knot).

Når jeg strikker knutene etter diagrammene i rekkefølgen: A.1, A.2a, A.2b og A.3 blir knutene ikke fordelt jevnt, der første og andre knute ligger ganske nær hverandre. Er det feil med oppskriften? Mener det bør heller strikkes i rekkefølge: A.1, A.2b, A.2a og A.3 for å få jevn fordeling av knutene.

DROPS Design 18.03.2019 kl. 10:53:

Hei Kimberly. Følger du diagrammet for din størrelse? som du kan se er det fler av hvert diagram, avhengig av hvilken størrelse du strikker. I størrelse S-XL er det 13 masker mellom hver knute, mens det størrelse XXL-XXXL er 15 masker mellom hver knute (1 knute på slutten av A.1, 1 knute på slutten av A.2a, ingen knute i A.2b, 1 knute på starten av A.3). God fornøyelse

Luci 02.03.2019 - 02:37:

In the A3 diagram, I noticed that it works in one part, like at the beginning of the front part but at the end the knot is put right next to the increase sistch but in the picture it looks like the knot is at least 3 stitches away from the Increase stitch. Do I have to read the A3 backwards when I repeat it at the end of the front/back part?

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 12:51:

Dear Luci, at the beg of front/back piece you work A.1, then A.2 and finish with A.3, you should have the same number of sts between beg of A.1 and knot and between knot and end of A.3 - as shown in diagram. Happy knitting!
