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

EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, count the stitches to be increased (e.g. 9 stitches) and divide by stitches of increases to be done (e.g. 2) = 4.5. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately every 4th and 5th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round purl yarn over twisted to avoid holes. Purl the new stitches.

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

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

RAGLAN:
In the beginning increase 2 stitches towards each raglan on front and back piece (= 8 stitches increased on round), and thereafter increase 1 stitch towards each raglan on front and back piece (= 4 stitches increased on round).
Increase 2 stitches before marker thread as follows: Work until 2 stitches remain before marker thread: 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, marker thread is here.
Increase 2 stitches after marker thread as follows: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over.
Increase 1 stitch before marker thread as follows: Work until 1 stitch remains before marker thread: 1 yarn over, knit 1, marker thread is here.
Increase 1 stitch after marker thread as follows: Knit 1, 1 yarn over.
On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. Then work the new stitches in stocking stitch. 

CAST-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a larger needle. If this also is too tight, make 1 yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch and cast off these as regular stitches.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

TOP - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work neck edge and yoke in the round on circular needle from mid back, top down. Now divide yoke for body and sleeves. Work body in the round on circular needle. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/short circular needle, top down.

NECK EDGE:
Cast on 112-118-126-138-144-144 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Paris. Knit 1 round. Work next round as follows: (Knit 2/purl 2) over the first 8-8-12-12-12-12 stitches, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between back piece and right sleeve), knit 1, (purl 1/knit 2) over the next 33-36-36-42-45-45 stitches, purl 1, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between right sleeve and front piece), knit 1, (purl 2/knit 2) over the next 16-16-20-20-20-20 stitches, purl 2, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between front piece and left sleeve), knit 1, (purl 1/knit 2) over the next 33-36-36-42-45-45 stitches, purl 1, knit 1, insert a marker thread here (= in transition between left sleeve and back piece), knit 1, (purl 2/knit 2) over the next 8-8-8-8-8-8 stitches, purl 2.
Continue in the round like this until rib measures 3 cm.
When rib is done, work next round as follows:
Knit until first marker thread and increase at the same time 2-3-3-3-3-4 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP-1, knit over knit and purl over purl until next marker thread and increase at the same time 1 stitch in every purl section – read INCREASE TIP-2, knit until next marker thread and increase at the same time 4-6-5-5-6-8 stitches evenly, knit over knit and purl over purl until next marker thread and increase at the same time 1 stitch in every purl section, knit the last 11-11-11-11-11-11 stitches and increase at the same time 2-3-2-2-3-4 stitches evenly = 144-156-162-178-188-192 stitches. Work 1 row with knit over knit and purl over purl (work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes).
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of round (= approx. mid back), measure yoke from this marker!

YOKE:
Knit over knit and purl over purl. On first round start increase for RAGLAN – read explanation above. Only increase on front piece and back piece towards each raglan. Increase 2 stitches every other round 9-9-8-10-12-13 times in total, then increase 1 stitch every other round 2-4-6-6-8-8 times = 224-244-250-282-316-328 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue with knit over knit and purl over purl until piece measures 12-13-15-16-18-20 cm from marker.
The yoke is finished. Then work in the outermost stitch in each side of front piece and back piece in on sleeves.
Work next round as follows: Work the first 30-33-37-41-47-50 stitches, slip the next 50-54-54-62-66-66 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 6-6-10-10-10-14 stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the next 62-68-71-79-92-98 stitches (= front piece), slip the next 50-54-54-62-66-66 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 6-6-10-10-10-14 stitches on needle (= in the side under sleeve), work the remaining 32-35-34-38-45-48 stitches on needle.
Then finish body and sleeves separately. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 136-148-162-178-204-224 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the in each side, in middle of the new stitches cast-on under the sleeves (= 3-3-5-5-5-7 new stitches on each side of marker thread). Move the marker threads upwards when working; they should be used for increase later in the sides.
Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 4 cm from division, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker threads - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 8-7-6-5-4-3 cm 2 times in total = 128-140-154-170-196-216 stitches. When piece measures 20-18-16-14-12-10 cm from division, increase 1 stitch on each side of marker threads - read INCREASE TIP-3. Increase like this approx. every 3-4-4-5-6-6 cm 4-4-4-4-3-3 times in total = 144-156-170-186-208-228 stitches. When piece measures 30 cm from division (3 cm remain until finished measurements - work to desired length), knit 1 round while increasing 28-28-34-38-40-44 stitches = 172-184-204-224-248-272 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) in the round for 3 cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl - read CAST-OFF TIP. Top measures total 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm in total from shoulder and down.

SLEEVE:
Slip the 50-54-54-62-66-66 stitches from stitch holder in one side back on double pointed needles/circular needle size 5 mm, and pick up 1 stitch in each of the 6-6-10-10-10-14 stitches cast on under the sleeve = 56-60-64-72-76-80 stitches. Work rib (knit 2/purl 2) in the round. When sleeve measures 3 cm from division, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl - remember CAST-OFF TIP. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Do you need help with this pattern?

Thank you for choosing a DROPS Design pattern. We take pride in providing patterns that are correct and easy to understand. All patterns are translated from Norwegian and you can always check the original pattern (DROPS 212-15) for measurements and calculations.

Are you having trouble following the pattern? See below for a list of resources to help you finish your project in no time - or why not, learn something new.

Each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you.

We have also step-by-step guides for different techniques which you'll find here.

1) Why is the knitting/crochet tension so important?

Knitting tension is what determines the final measurements of your work, and is usually measured per 10 x 10 cm. It is provided like so: number of stitches in width x number of rows in height - eg: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

The knitting tension is very individual; some people knit/crochet loosely while others work tightly. You adjust the knitting tension with the needle size, which is why the suggested needle size only serve as a guide! You need to adjust this (up or down) to ensure that YOUR knitting tension matches the knitting tension provided in the pattern. If you work with a different knitting tension than provided you will have a different yarn consumption, and your work will have different measurements than what the pattern suggests.

The knitting tension also determines which yarns can replace each other. As long as you achieve the same knitting tension you can replace one yarn with another.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

2) What are the yarn groups?

All our yarns are categorised into yarn groups (from A to F) according to thickness and knitting tension – group A contains the thinnest yarns and group F the thickest. This makes it easier for you to find alternative yarns to our patterns, should you wish to switch yarn. All yarns within the same group have a similar knitting tension and can easily replace each other. However, different yarn qualities have different structures and properties which will give the finished work a unique look and feel.

Click here for an overview of the yarns in each yarn group

to top

3) Can I use a different yarn than what the pattern suggests?

The important thing when changing from one yarn to another is that the knitting/crochet tension remains the same. This is so that the measurements of the finished piece will be the same as on the sketch provided. It is easier to achieve the same knitting tension using yarns from the same yarn group. It is also possible to work with multiple strands of a thinner yarn to achieve the knitting tension of a thicker one. Please try our yarn converter. We recommend you to always work a test swatch.

Please NOTE: when changing yarn the garment might have a different look and feel to the garment in the photo, due to individual properties and qualities of each yarn.

See DROPS lesson: Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

to top

4) How do I use the yarn converter?

At the top of all our patterns you’ll find a link to our yarn converter, which is a helpful tool should you wish to use a different yarn than suggested. By filling in the yarn quality you wish to replace, the amount (in your size) and number of strands, the converter will present good alternative yarns with the same knitting tension. Additionally it will tell you how much you’ll require in the new qualities and whether you’ll need to work with multiple strands. Most skeins are 50g (some are 25g or 100g).

If the pattern is worked with multiple colours, every colour will have to be converted separately. Similarly, if the pattern is worked with several strands of different yarns (for example 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk) you will have to find alternatives for each, individually.

to top

5) Why do I get the wrong knitting tension with the suggested needle size?

The needle size provided in the pattern serves only as a guide, the important thing is to follow the knitting tension. And since knitting tension is very individual, you will have to adjust the needle size to ensure that YOUR tension is the same as in the pattern – maybe you’ll have to adjust 1, or even 2 needle sizes, up or down to achieve the correct tension. For this, we recommend that you work test swatches.

Should you work with a different knitting tension than the one provided, the measurements of the finished garment might deviate from the measurement sketch.

See DROPS lesson: How to measure your tension/gauge

See DROPS video: How to make a gauge tension swatch

to top

6) Why is the pattern worked top-down?

Working a garment top-down provides more flexibility and room for personal adjustment. For example it is easier to try the garment on while working, as well as making adjustments to length of yoke and shoulder caps.

The instructions are carefully explaining every step, in the correct order. Diagrams are adjusted to the knitting direction and are worked as usual.

to top

7) Why are the sleeves shorter in larger sizes?

The total width of the garment (from wrist-to-wrist) will be larger in the larger sizes, despite the actual sleeves being shorter. The larger sizes have longer sleeve caps and wider shoulders, so there will be a good fit in all sizes.

to top

8) What is a repeat?

Diagrams are often repeated on the round or in height. 1 repeat is the diagram the way it appears in the pattern. If it says to work 5 repeats of A.1 in the round, then you work A.1 a total of 5 times after/next to each other in the round. If it says to work 2 repeats of A.1 vertically/in height you work the entire diagram once, then begin again at the start and work the entire diagram one more time.

to top

9) How do I work according to a knitting diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is read from bottom to top, from right to left. 1 square = 1 stitch.

When working back and forth, every other row is worked from the right side and every other row is worked from the wrong side. When working from the wrong side, the diagram will have to be worked reversed: from left to right, knit stitches are purled, purl stitches are knit etc.

When working in the round every round is worked from the right side and the diagram are worked from right to left on all rounds.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

to top

10) How do I work according to a crochet diagram?

The diagram depicts all rows/rounds, and every stitch seen from the right side. It is worked from bottom to top, from right to left.

When working back and forth every other row is worked from the right side: from right to left and every other row is worked from the wrong side: from left to right.

When working in the round, every row in the diagram are worked from the right side, from right to left.

When working a circular diagram you start in the middle and work your way outwards, counter clockwise, row by row.

The rows usually start with a given number of chain stitches (equivalent to the height of the following stitch), this will either be depicted in the diagram or explained in the pattern.

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

11) How do I work several diagrams simultaneously on the same row/round?

Instructions for working several diagrams after each other on the same row/round, will often be written like so: “work A.1, A.2, A.3 a total of 0-0-2-3-4 times". This means you work A.1 once, then A.2 is worked once, and A.3 is repeated (in width) the number of times provided for your size – in this case like so: S = 0 times, M = 0 times, L=2 times, XL= 3 times and XXL = 4 times.

The diagrams are worked as usual: begin with the first row in A.1, then work the first row in A.2 etc.

See DROPS lesson: How to read knitting diagrams

See DROPS lesson: How to read crochet diagrams

to top

12) Why does the piece start with more chain stitches than it’s worked with?

Chain stitches are slightly narrower than other stitches and to avoid working the cast-on edge too tight, we simply chain more stitches to begin with. The stitch count will be adjusted on the following row to fit the pattern and measurement sketch.

to top

13) Why increase before the rib edge when the piece is worked top-down?

The rib edge is more elastic and will contract slightly compared to, for example, stocking stitch. By increasing before the rib edge, you avoid a visible difference in width between the rib edge and the rest of the body.

to top

14) Why increase in the cast-off edge?

It’s very easy to cast off too tightly, and by making yarn overs while casting off (and simultaneously casting these off) you avoid a too tight cast off edge.

See DROPS video: How to bind off with yarn overs (yo)

to top

15) How do I increase/decrease on every 3rd and 4th row/round alternately?

To achieve an even increase (or decrease) you can increase on, for example: every 3rd and 4th row alternately, like so: work 2 rows and increase on the 3rd row, work 3 rows and increase on the 4th. Repeat this until the increase is complete.

See DROPS lesson: Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row alternately

to top

16) Why is the pattern slightly different than what I see in the photo?

Pattern repeats can vary slightly in the different sizes, in order to get the correct proportions. If you’re not working the exact same size as the garment in the photo, yours might deviate slightly. This has been carefully developed and adjusted so that the complete impression of the garment is the same in all sizes.

Make sure to follow instructions and diagrams for your size!

to top

17) How can I work a jacket in the round instead of back and forth?

Should you prefer to work in the round instead of back and forth, you may of course adjust the pattern. You’ll need to add steeks mid-front (usually 5 stitches), and follow the instructions. When you would normally turn and work from the wrong side, simply work across the steek and continue in the round. At the end you’ll cut the piece open, pick up stitches to work bands, and cover the cut edges.

See DROPS video: How to knit steeks and cut open

to top

18) Can I work a jumper back and forth instead of in the round?

Should you prefer to work back and forth instead of in the round, you may of course adjust the pattern so you work the pieces separately and then assemble them at the end. Divide the stitches for the body in 2, add 1 edge stitch in each side (for sewing) and work the front and back pieces separately.

See DROPS lesson: Can I adapt a pattern for circular needles into straight needles?

to top

19) Why do you show discontinued yarns in the patterns?

Since different yarns have different qualities and textures we have chosen to keep the original yarn in our patterns. However, you can easily find options among our available qualities by using our yarn converter, or simply pick a yarn from the same yarn group.

It is possible that some retailers still have discontinued yarns in stock, or that someone has a few skeins at home that they would like to find patterns for.

The yarn converter will provide both alternative yarn as well as required amount in the new quality.

to top

20) How do I make a women’s size garment into a men’s size one?

If you have found a pattern you like which is available in women’s size it’s not very difficult to convert it to men’s size. The biggest difference will be the length of sleeves and body. Start working on the women size that you think would fit across the chest. The additional length will be worked right before you cast off for the armhole/sleeve cap. If the pattern is worked top-down you can add the length right after the armhole or before the first decrease on sleeve.

Regarding additional yarn amount, this will depend on how much length you add, but it is better with a skein too many than too few.

to top

21) How do I prevent a hairy garment from shedding?

All yarns will have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding. Brushed yarns (ie hairier yarns) have more of these loose, excess fibres, causing more shedding.

Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibres. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

1. When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.

2. Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibres to become less attached to each other, and excess fibres will come off easier.

3. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.

4. Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label.

to top

22) Where on the garment is the length measured?

The measurement sketch/schematic drawing provides information regarding the full length of the garment. If it’s a jumper or a jacket the length is measured from the highest point on the shoulder closest to the neckline, and straight down to the bottom of the garment. It is NOT measured from the tip of shoulder. Similarly, the length of yoke is measured from the highest point on the shoulder and down to where yoke is split into body and sleeves.

On a jacket measures are never taken along bands, unless specifically stated. Always measure inside band stitches when measuring the length.

See DROPS lesson: How to read a schematic drawing

to top

23) How do I know how many balls of yarn I need?

The required amount of yarn is provided in grams, eg: 450 g. To calculate how many balls you’ll need you first need to know how many grams are in 1 ball (25g, 50g or 100g). This information is available if you click on the individual yarn quality on our pages. Divide the amount required with the amount of each ball. For example, if each ball is 50g (the most common amount), the calculation will be as follows: 450 / 50 = 9 balls.

DROPS Design answered:

Hi Kelly, On the first increase round you increase 3 + 13 (all the increased purled sections) + 5 + 13 (all the increased purled sections) +2 = 46 increased stitches and a total of 162 stitches. Happy knitting!

Hi. But if we increase (raglan) only in the body and not on the sleeves, how we managed to have 62 stitches in the sleeves to put on hold? Because without increasing on the sleeves, we have only 30. And the piece starts with 2knitt +2 purl, that belongs to the sleeves, so the work/row starts in the middle of a sleeve and not in the middle of the back as it has been said. The instructions are very confusing! Some help is really appreciate.

23.06.2022 - 16:26

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Vigs, for size XL, you have 45 stitches for each sleeve in the neck edge at the start. After 3 cm, you work increases over the sleeve stitches. When you start the yoke, you should already have enough stitches for the sleeves, that's why we only need to increase for the front/ back. In the neck edge, you work a specific rib stitch over the body as well (purl 2/ knit 2), while you work over the sleeve as you will later on (Purl 1, knit 2). After 3 cm, you increase over the sleeves to have as well knit 2/ purl 2 in the sleeve. So the beggining of the work is correct, in the middle of the back. Happy knitting!

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Violena, you are increasing only on body (= back piece + front pieces) not on sleeve, rounds start on mid back, you don't increase on mid back, you increase for raglan before 1st marker thread + after 4th marker thread on back piece and after 2nd marker + before 3rd marker thread on front piece. You will increase first 2 sts at each marker thread (= 8 sts on the round) then only 1 st at each marker thread (= 4 sts on the round). Hope this will help. Happy knitting!

Or am I to decrease 3 times (at 4cm, 8cm and another 8 cm)?

Dear Lori Ann, you have to decrease only 2 times, so the decreases at 4 cm is count as one of the two total decreases. Second one is done at 8 cm. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, Je tricote ce modèle en M, j'ai fait 3 cm de côtes pour le col = 118 mailles (m) (9+39+20+39+11). Comment faire les augmentations (aug) au tour suivant pour obtenir un total de 156 m? J'ai tricoté : 9 m en côtes; 39 m +3 aug endroit; 20 m + 5 aug uniquement sur l'envers; 39 m +6 aug endroit; 20 m + 5 aug uniquement sur l'envers; 11 m + 3 aug endroit (déplacement du marqueur de début de rang = milieu dos) total : 140 m pour 1 rang (ou 160 m tricotées pour cette partie)

Bonjour Aurélie, il vous manque quelques augmentations: 9 m + 3 = 12 m pour le demi-dos, 39+13 = 52 m pour la manche, 20+6 = 26 m pour le devant, 39+13 = 52 m pour la manche et 11+3= 14 m pour le demi-dos, soit: 12+52+26+52+14=156 m tricotées au-dessus de 9+39+20+39+11=118 m. Bon tricot!

How much ease is recommended for this?

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Heather, the modell is vearing the piece with a slight ease, but I would suggest that you take a piece that fits the intended wearer, and compare its measurements to the ones given on the schematic drawing. The piece actually can be used different ways, with negative ease it would shouwing off the figure, with a positive ease it would be sportier, it is up to you to decide. Happy Knitting!
