How to knit A.1 and increase to raglan in DROPS 175-1

In this DROPS video we show you how to work after chart A.1 while increase to raglan to the Wind Down jumper in DROPS 175-1. We have already cast on up and knitted 1 ridge (we have a smaller number of stitches than it says in the pattern, but we follow the raglan increases as if we had work after size S. Marking threads make it easier for you to see where we are in the pattern).

We show the entire 1st round (A.1 and without increase), the entire 2nd round (with increase before and after chart A.1 and how we work to get holes), the entire 3rd round (where the increases / yarn over are work twisted to prevent holes and A.1).

This jumper is knitted in DROPS Merino Extra Fine, but in the video we work with a thicker yarn; DROPS Eskimo.

I am not clear about the increase tip in the instructions that says "Work until there is 1 stitch left before the marker thread. Work 1 yarn over, knit 2 and work 1 yarn over." Does this mean before and after each A.1 I am to increase 2 stitches - for a total of 8 stitches per round? Also why does it say 1 stitch before the marker thread but then knit 2 - where do I knit 2 when I am 1 stitch before the marker thread? Thank you.

Dear Mrs Hemstreet, the INCREASE-TIP in pattern applies to increases on the sides not to the raglan increases. For raglan increase with a YO before and/or after A.1 (see increases for your size, you increase at a different rythm on body and sleeves). Happy knitting!

Hi. In the notes for the A.1 video for pattern 175-1, you show the 1st round without increase. I am not sure where to start increasing. Should the increases start in the round that starts A.1? Thank you.

I would like to knit this pattern. I am having trouble understanding the video as she is going to too fast when she is knitting the one yarn over between two stitches segment. I throw with my right hand and it is making it impossible for me to decipher. Can the video be slowed somehow?

Dear Lori, do not hesitate to click on the "pause" button to stop video and show it step by step. Remember to read the pattern and look at the diagrams at the same time watching the video. Happy knitting!

Bonjour Mme Depommier, pour avoir une encolure plus échancrée devant, il vous faudrait faire une réhausse pour l'encolure dos. N'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone aux coordonnées indiquées dans la liste, on pourra vous assister. Bon tricot!

This is the first time I have knitted a pattern from the neck down, I am trying to follow the video to show how to increase before the A1 pattern. The video is too fast and the demonstrator knits differently from me holding the wool in her left hand. Please could you let me know if there is a slow motion video. thanks Clare PS I would love to do this pattern but may need to give up.

Dear Mrs Elias, there are different way to knit, do not worry about this, just make sure to understand how to knit the sts and the increases. You can stop the video at any moment. For any further individual assistance, remember your DROPS store will be able to help you even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!
