EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge vertically = 2 rounds, i.e. knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.7. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.5, A.6 and A.7).

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 124 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 26) = 4.8. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 5th stitch. On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

RAGLAN:
Increase for raglan in every transition between front/back piece and sleeves as explained below:
Increase after the marker thread like this: knit 1, make 1 yarn over.
Increase before the marker thread like this: work until 1 stich remain before the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 1.
You increase 2 stitches at each marked thread, and a total of 8 stitches on the round.
On next round knit the yarn overs to make holes. Then work the new stitch in stocking stitch on body and in lace pattern on sleeves. 

INCREASE TIP-2 (applies to sides of body):
Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 6 (marker thread is in the middle of these 6 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased at the marker thread and 4 stitches increased in total on round.) On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

TOP - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Neck edge and yoke are worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Divide yoke for body and sleeve edges. Continue body in the round, top down. Work sleeve edges in the round on double pointed needles, top down.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 120-124-128-132-138-146 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Safran. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH in the round - read explanation above. Knit 1 round while increasing 6-26-22-38-32-44 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 126-150-150-170-170-190 stitches. Knit 1 round (knit yarn overs twisted). Then work yoke as explained below.

YOKE:
Switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Insert 4 marker threads in piece as explained below (without working the stitches). Use marker threads later when increasing for raglan. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round, count 23 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker before next stitch, count 40-52-52-62-62-72 stitches (= front piece), insert 1 marker thread before next stitch, count 23 stitches (= sleeve), insert 1 marker thread before next stitch. There are 40-52-52-62-62-72 stitches after last marker thread on back piece.
Work first round as follows: increase for RAGLAN after the marker thread – read explanation above, work A.1 over the next 21 stitches (= sleeve), increase for raglan on each side of marker thread, work in stocking stitch until 1 stitch remains before next marker thread (= front piece), increase for raglan on each side of marker thread, work A.1 over the 21 stitches (= sleeve), increase for raglan on each side of marker thread, work in stocking stitch until 1 stitch remain before marker thread at the beginning of round (=back piece), increase for raglan before marker thread.
Continue pattern like this in stocking stitch on front and back piece and A.1 on sleeves. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME continue increase for raglan every other round until increase has been done 25-25-31-31-37-37 times in total at every marker thread (including increase explained on first round). Work the new stitch in stocking stitch on front and back piece and in lace pattern the way diagrams show on sleeves.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue lace pattern on sleeves as explained below:
LACE PATTERN SLEEVE:
SIZE S and M: When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.5 (= 13 stitches), work A.6 over the next 48 stitches (= 4 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.7 (= 8 stitches). When last row in A.5 to A.7 remain, divide yoke for body and sleeves as explained below ALL SIZES.
SIZE L and XL: When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.5 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 48 stitches (= 4 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.7 (= 8 stitches). When last row in A.5 to A.7 remain, divide yoke for body and sleeves as explained below ALL SIZES.
SIZE XXL and XXXL: When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.2 (= 13 stitches), work A.3 over the next 48 stitches (= 4 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.4 (= 8 stitches). When A.2 to A.4 have been worked, work next round as follows over stitches on sleeves: Work A.5 (= 13 stitches), work A.6 over the next 72 stitches (= 6 repetition of 12 stitches), and finish with A.7 (= 8 stitches). When last row in A.5 to A.7 remain, divide yoke for body and sleeves as explained below ALL SIZES.

ALL SIZES:
When increases for raglan are done, there are 326-350-398-418-466-486 stitches on round. Continue lace pattern as explained above until last row in A.5 and A.7 remains.
Now divide yoke for body and sleeves and work last round as follows: Knit 4-1-2-0-4-3, slip the next 65-71-81-85-89-91 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), knit the next 98-104-118-124-144-152 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 65-71-81-85-89-91 stitches on 1 stitch holder for sleeve, cast on 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve) and knit the remaining 94-103-116-124-140-149 stitches (= back piece). Yoke measures now approx. 20-20-24-24-27-27 cm from cast-on edge mid front. Remove all marker threads in piece and cut the yarn. Now finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 212-224-252-268-308-328 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side on body, in the middle of the 8-8-8-10-10-12 stitches that were cast on under sleeves. Move marker threads upwards when working. Use them later when increasing in the sides.
Begin round at one of the marker threads and work stocking stitch in the round.
When piece measures 4 cm from division in all sizes, increase 1 stitch on each side of both markers - READ INCREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 5 cm 5 times in total in all sizes = 232-244-272-288-328-348 stitches. Work until piece measures approx. 28-30-28-30-29-31 cm from division (or desired length, approx. 2 cm remain until finished measurements). Knit 1 round while increasing 56-60-68-72-80-84 stitches evenly = 288-304-340-360-408-432 stitches. This is done to avoid the rib to be worked, from contracting.
Switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm. Work rib in the round = knit 2/purl 2 for 2 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Top measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE EDGES:
Slip the 65-71-81-85-89-91 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and pick in addition up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-8-10-10-12 new stitches cast on under sleeve = 73-79-89-95-99-103 stitches.
Work 3 ridges in the round. Cast off by knitting. Work the other sleeve edge the same way.

Er ikke denne toppen veldig liten i halsåpningen? Vanlig hodeomkrets på voksne ligger mellom 56 og 60 cm. I hht oppgitte mål må en helt opp i størrelse XXXL for å få 56cm. Jeg har begynt å strikke i str L og jeg ser ikke at jeg vil klare å tre denne over hodet. Hva gjør jeg?

Ulla Friis 03.08.2019 - 08:54:

Når jeg kommer til mønster A5 skal jeg så stadig tage ud til raglan for så bliver det jo 2 omslag efter hinanden

DROPS Design 16.08.2019 kl. 11:06:

Hej Ulla, du kan vente til du har yderligere en raglanudtagning, så du har en maske imellem de 2 udtagninger. God fornøjelse!

Ana 26.07.2019 - 10:40:

Gracias, Mae. Al final mantuve la simetría, y creo que en la tercera foto del patrón se puede ver que es así como está tejido.

Mae 25.07.2019 - 17:52:

Hola, Ana, si haces como tú misma dices, agujero, dos puntos derechos, agujero, al principio y al final de cada manga, mantienes la simetría. En los dibujos A5 y A7 sólo aparece el principio o el final, agujero/dos puntos juntos (recuerda que en esas 11 vueltas ya no hay más aumentos). Como lo haces en el principio y el final de cada manga, mantienes la línea de los calados diagonales del raglán.

Iris 24.07.2019 - 08:51:

Es macht unheimlich viel Spaß, dieses Shirt zu stricken. Vielen Dank für die Anleitung.

Ana 21.07.2019 - 13:03:

Hola. Una vez terminados los aumentos del canesú se realizan unas calados al principio y final de las mangas para continuar con el dibujo del raglán (agujero, dos puntos derechos, agujero). Mi pregunta es si hay que hacer estos mismos calados en el delantero y la espalda para mantener la simetría. Muchas gracias.

DROPS Design 01.08.2019 kl. 15:52:

Hola Ana. Los calados en la línea del raglán se trabajan siempre los 4 veces en la vuelta (es decir, en todas las transiciones entre el cuerpo y la manga).

Ingeborg 17.07.2019 - 07:04:

Hei ! Skal hull mønsteret i siden på diagram 5 og 7 strikkes på for og bakstykket også ?

Kina 07.06.2019 - 10:57:

Angående föregående fråga, har det stor betydelse om jag har 104m på både fram- och bakstycke i storlek M?

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 13:15:

Hei Kina. Se svar under :)

Kina 07.06.2019 - 10:36:

Jättefin modell, men jag förstår inte varför framstycket ska stickas 104m och bakstycket 103m vid delningen och samtidigt 71m för ärmarna? Det blir för mig 223m.

DROPS Design 07.06.2019 kl. 13:14:

Hei Kina. Det er 104 maker på både forstykket og bakstykket, du strikker 1 maske rett før du setter maskene på en tråd til ermet: "Nå deles bærestykket til bol og ermer, og siste omgang strikkes slik: Strikk 4-1-2-0-4-3 masker rett". Denne masken er den manglende masken på bakstykket. 104+104+71+71 = 350 masker. God fornøyelse
