Tags: jackets, jumpers, neck warmers, saddle shoulder, stocking stitch, top down,

In this DROPS video we show how to increase to sleeves to a garment with saddle shoulder by increasing 2 stitches on each sleeve. This technique is used in the "Country Muse" jumper in DROPS 216-40 and the "Country Muse Cardigan" jacket in DROPS 216-39.

We have already worked a neckline and increases for saddle shoulders for a jumper and start the video by moving saddle shoulders markers to where the sleeves are increases.

Increase like this before 1st and 3rd makers:
Use left needle to pick up strand between 2 stitches from the row below, pick up strand from behind and knit stitch in front loop (= 1 stitch increased).

Increase like this after 2nd and 4th makers:
Use left needle to pick up strand between 2 stitches from the row below, pick up strand from the front and knit stitch in back loop (= 1 stitch increased).

Knit next round, but if it is a jacket purl from WS. Remember there are only increases for the sleeves, the number of front piece and back piece remains the same.

The jumper in DROPS 216-40 and the jacket in DROPS 216-39 are worked in DROPS Lima, but in the video we use a thicker yarn; DROPS Snow.

I opskriften står der under “udtagning ærme”, at man tager maske ud EFTER 1. og 3. mærke. I videoen ovenfor står der udtagning FØR 1. og 3. mærke. Mon ikke opskriften er rigtig?
