Then knit as follows: K 5 (buttonband sts), Pattern 2 over the following 182-208-221-260-286 sts, K 3 (stockinette st) and K 5 (buttonband sts knit in garter st). Make buttonholes on right buttonband – see instructions above.
Read the entire next section before knitting:

Yoke: When the piece measures approx. 34-35-36-37-38 cm – adjust so that you have knit 1 row after a cable – put the 5 buttonband sts at each side on st holders = 185-211-224-263-289 sts.
K 2 rows garter st, change to larger needles and continue in stockinette st, decreasing 17-23-24-39-41 sts evenly distributed on the 1st row = 168-188-200-224-248 sts. Put a marker 42-47-50-56-62 sts in from each side = 84-94-100-112-124 sts between markers on back.
Armhole: When the piece measures 37-38-39-40-41 cm bind off 6-6-6-8-10 sts at each side for armhole (3-3-3-4-5 sts at each side of each marker) = 78-88-94-104-114 sts on back and 39-44-47-52-57 sts on each front.

Back: = 78-88-94-104-114 sts. Bind off for armhole at each side every other row: 2 sts 0-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 3-4-4-7-9 times = 72-76-78-78-80 sts. When the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62 cm bind off the center 28-30-32-32-32 sts for the neck. Then dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 2 times = 20-21-21-21-22 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 56-58-60-62-64 cm.

Right front: = 39-44-47-52-57 sts. Bind off for armhole at the side as on back. When the piece measures 41-42-43-44-46 cm put the outermost 5-6-7-7-7 sts at the center front on a st holder for the neck. Then bind off at neck edge every other row: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 4 times, then every 4th row: 1 st 3 times.
After all armhole and neck shaping is complete 20-21-21-21-22 sts remain on shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 56-58-60-62-64 cm.

Left front: Knit the same as the right, reversing shaping.

Sleeve: Loosely cast on 77-77-77-92-92 sts on smaller needles with 1 strand each Alpaca and Glitter (2 strands). P 1 row (wrong side), then knit Pattern 1, keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st.
When Pattern 1 is complete, dec all P 4 (seen from the right side) to P 3 = 67-67-67-80-80 sts. Continue with Pattern 2, keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st.
When the piece measures approx. 20 cm - adjust so that you have knit 1 row after a cable – knit 2 rows garter st. Change to larger needles and stockinette st, decreasing 13-9-7-18-16 sts evenly distributed on the 1st row = 54-58-60-62-64 sts.
When the piece measures 22 cm inc 1 st at each side every 4-3-2.5-2-1.5 cm a total of 7-8-9-11-13 times = 68-74-78-84-90 sts.
When the piece measures 48-47-47-46-45 cm bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 4 sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2-4-4-7-8 times, then bind off 2 sts at each side until the piece measures 55-55-56-57-57 cm, and then bind off 3 sts 1 time at each side. Bind off the remaining sts, the piece measures approx. 56-56-57-58-58 cm.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams.
Buttonband: Put the 5 sts from left front back on smaller needles. Knit garter st over all sts for approx. 7-7-7-7-8 cm (to match length up to the beginning of neck shaping), put sts on a st holder. Repeat on the right front – make buttonhole. Sew buttonbands to front edges.
Neckband: Pick up approx. 116-128 sts (incl. sts from st holders) around the neck on smaller needles with 1 strand each Alpaca and Glitter (2 strands)– start on right front and pick up from right side.
Knit reverse stockinette st, putting the outermost st at the end of each row on a st holder – read Knitting tip. When neckband measures 2 cm inc 1 st in every 4th st – inc 1 st by pulling up and knitting a st from the previous row = approx. 137-152 sts.
When neckband measures 4 cm put sts on st holders at each side back on needles, knit 1 row stockinette st over all sts and then bind off all sts. So that the bound-off edge is not too tight, make a yo approx. every 8 sts and bind off the yo as a st – the neckband will roll.
Sew sleeve seams using edge sts as seam allowance. Sew in sleeves. Sew on buttons.

Det finns många fel i mönstret, maskantalen stämmer inte och jag fick skriva om hela mönstret.

Fabienne 28.12.2017 - 18:24:

Bonjour Je osuhaiterais tricoter plutôt avec la laine baby-alpaca-silk qui est plus douce. Pensez vous que ce soit possible avec la même taille d'aiguilles et sans modifier le nombre de mailles? En vous remerciant,

DROPS Design 29.12.2017 kl. 11:11:

Chere Fabienne, cette alternative est tout a fait possible avec la même taille d'aiguilles et sans modifier le nombre de mailles. Bon tricot!

Sylvie 06.02.2017 - 12:06:

Bonjour, Au niveau du diagramme, je ne comprends pas à quelle hauteur on doit passer du diagramme M1 au diagramme M2. Pouvez-vous m'expliquer SVP ? Merci d'avance Sylvie

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 13:18:

Bonjour Sylvie, quand M.1 a été tricoté 1 fois en hauteur, augmentez 1 maille comme indiqué et continuez en tricotant M.2. Bon tricot!

Fulvia 23.09.2016 - 17:45:

Buonasera Vorrei sapere se è possibile avere la traduzione in italiano di questo modello Grazie Cordiali saluti Fulvia

DROPS Design 23.09.2016 kl. 18:09:

Buongiorno Fulvia. Tradurremo e caricheremo sul sito il modello nei prossimi giorni. Grazie e buon lavoro!

Marie 15.01.2016 - 15:39:

Bonjour, madame! Pensez-vous qu'il est possible de tricoter les manches de cette veste en rond (sans faire de couture) en supprimant les mailles lisière? Est-ce que cela va déranger pour le reste du tricot? Merci!

DROPS Design 16.01.2016 kl. 10:48:

Bonjour Marie, vous pouvez tout à fait tricoter les manches en rond jusqu'à l'arrondi où il vous faudra terminer en allers et retours pour rabattre les mailles de chaque côté. Bon tricot!

BELLA 31.12.2015 - 16:08:

Hello I am just working on tension sample of pattern 88-4 Please tell me 1 -the gauge knitting tension is measured for working in stocking stitch or pattern stitch ? 2-Worked In stocking- for 10 cm. I knitted 21 st. with 3.5 cm. needles and it looks fine.(4 cm needles are too big) what can I do? ) Thanks

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 16:02:

Dear Bella, tension stated is worked in stocking st. You can also wash and block your swatch to check out the tension on the finished item. Remember your DROPS store will help you for any individual assistance, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Ina 17.10.2015 - 21:17:

Diese wunderschöne Jacke habe ich vor vielen Jahren gestrickt. Nun habe ich sie aus Versehen zu heiß gewaschen und sie paßt nicht mehr.Ich möchte sie gern noch einmal stricken, aber den Glitter in grün gibt es nicht mehr und ohne den Metallfaden sieht sie nicht so schön aus. Ich habe schon viele Händler kontaktiert, alles negativ. Meine Hoffnung ist, dass Sie mir helfen können. Vielleicht gibt bei Ihnen doch noch einige Reste.?? Viele Grüße Ina Mikhail

DROPS Design 29.10.2015 kl. 14:30:

Leider ist Glitter in Grün nicht mehr erhältlich. Sie könnten höchstens vielleicht in Online-Gebrauchtplattformen schauen, ob dort noch jemand etwas verkauft. Oder Sie verwenden Glitter in Gold, das würde zu dem Grün der Jacke auch ganz gut passen und der Jacke einen warmen Glanz verleihen, das ist aber natürlich Geschmackssache.

Stickolina 02.08.2015 - 18:48:

Hur många maskor bör jag ha kvar vid avmaskning av ärmen? Det framgår inte i mönstret och jag blir osäker....

DROPS Design 10.08.2015 kl. 11:15:

Hej Stickolina, Det beror på hur många ggr du hinner avm 2 m i varje sida innan ditt arb når 55-55-56-57-57 cm. Man avm enligt beskrivningen i varje sida så man får en rund och jämn ärmkulle. Lycka till!

Marion 14.05.2015 - 13:55:

Bei der Halskante werden doch alle Maschen der Hilfsfäden, also die 5 Bordmaschen und die Maschen für den Ausschnitt wieder mit auf die Nadel genommen? Welche Maschen werden dann wieder auf einen Hilfsfaden genommen und wann genau, zu welchem Zweck?

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 12:47:

Sie stricken zunächst nur die 5 Blenden-M weiter, die Blende muss ja noch bis zum Beginn des Halsausschnitts hochgestrickt werden, sie wird dann anschließend an das Vorderteil genäht (das muss so gemacht werden, damit die Blende weiterhin mit Nadel Nr. 3,5 gestr. wird, die Passe wird ja mit 4,5 gestr.). Dann nehmen Sie für die Halsblende alle M auf die Nadel, also die 5 Blenden-M, daran anschließend die stillgel. M des einen Vorderteils, dann fassen Sie aus dem Halsausschnitt des Vorderteils M auf, fassen aus dem Halsausschnitt des Rückens M auf, dann aus dem Halsausschnitt des anderen Vorderteils, dann folgen die stillgel. M & dann die anderen hochgestrickten 5 Blenden-M.

Corinne 14.08.2014 - 08:46:

Guten Tag Ich verstehe die Abnahmen bei den Ärmeln nicht. Es heisst: nach 46cm bei jeder 2. Reihe gegen die Schulter abk. 4M. 1Mal ect. Welche Seite des Ärmels ist gegen die Schulter? Oder muss ich auf beiden Seiten des Ärmels je 4M. abketten? Vielen Dank für die Hilfe!

DROPS Design 15.08.2014 kl. 11:55:

Liebe Corinne, die Übersetzung ist an dieser Stelle vielleicht etwas missverständlich, sie wird gleich korrigiert. Sie müssen an beiden Seiten des Ärmels für die Armkugel abnehmen. Schauen Sie einfach noch mal in die korrigierte Anleitung, wenn dann noch etwas unklar ist, fragen Sie einfach noch mal.
