There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Gauge: 15 sts x 21 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Knitting tips (for neckband):
Dec inside of 6 buttonband sts knit as follows on right side from edge: K 2 (garter st), K 1, P 1, K 1, P 1. Dec 1 st as follows:
After 6 edge sts: Slip 1 st as if to knit, K 1, psso.
Before 6 edge sts: K 2 tog.

Rib: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from * - *.

Pattern: See the chart. The chart shows Patterns 1A (M.1A), 1B (M.1B) and 1C (M.1C). The patterns are seen from the right side. «54 p/v = ca 26 cm»: 54 rows = approx. 26 cm.

Back: Cast on 61-67-73-83-91 sts around 2 needles (so that the cast-on edge will be elastic). Pull out one needle and P 1 row (wrong side). Then knit 4 rows rib, keeping 1 edge st at each side in garter st and begin rib with P 1. Change to stockinette st.
When the piece measures 3 cm establish the pattern on the next row as follows (right side row): K 1 (edge st knit in garter st), 0-3-2-3-3 sts stockinette st, Pattern 1A (= 5 sts), Pattern 1B over the following 48-48-56-64-72 sts, Pattern 1C (= 6 sts), 0-3-2-3-3 sts stockinette st, K 1 (edge st knit in garter st). Continue in pattern as established until piece measures 34-35-36-37-38 cm – adjust so that you end after you complete one of the lace patterns in the pattern – then knit stockinette st to finished measurements.
When the piece measures 9-9-9-13-13 cm inc 1 st at each side every 9-9-9-13-13 cm a total of 3-3-3-2-2 times = 67-73-79-87-95 sts – knit the increased sts in stockinette st.
When the piece measures 35-36-37-38-39 cm bind off for armhole at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 1-3-3-5-7 times = 55-57-59-59-59 sts.
When the piece measures 50-52-54-56-58 cm knit 4 rows with rib over the center 23-23-25-25-25 sts – start and end the rib with P 1 (knit the remaining sts in stockinette st as before), then bind off the center 11-11-13-13-13 sts for the neck in rib. Dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 2 times – see knitting tips above = 20-21-21-21-21 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off, the piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62 cm.

Right front: Cast on 36-40-44-48-52 sts around 2 needles (so that the cast-on edge will be elastic). Pull out one needle and P 1 row (wrong side). Then knit 4 rows rib as follows from center front edge: K 2 (edge sts knit in garter st), * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from * - * and finish with K 1 and K 1 (edge st knit in garter st). Then knit stockinette st but keep the outermost 6 sts at the center front as before to finished measurements (= buttonband).

Sehr geehrtes Team und Mitstricker,mir fällt es immer wieder schwer bei Lochmuster die Strickschrift zu lesen. Muss ich bei der Jacke 3M.rechts stricken und dann das Muster und dann wieder 3M rechts stricken und dann das Muster am Anfang. Oder Bis zur nächste Muster 6M rechts stricken und dann das Muster. Danke im voraus Lg Christa

Liebe Frau Kujawa-Hüsch, Diagramm lesen Sie so: bei dem unteren rechten Ecken angangen (= Hinreihen): M.1A stricken (= 5 M), dann M.1B (= 8 M) wiederholen und mit M.1C (= 6 M) enden. Bei den Rückreihen lesen Sie links nach rechts (= alle M werden hier links gestrickt). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, Je souhaite réaliser ce modèle en DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk. Y a-t-il des modifications à apporter aux explications ? Nombre de mailles, ... Merci

DROPS Design 01.07.2015 kl. 12:51:

Bonjour Rachel, vous pouvez tout à fait tricoter ce modèle en DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk (même groupe de fils C que Vivaldi), il vous faudra juste recalculer la quantité de pelotes nécessaire - voir ici comment faire. Pensez toujours à faire votre échantillon et à ensuite conserver la bonne tension. Bon tricot!

Pflieger 11.05.2013 - 16:20:

Bonjour, je souhaiterai une explication pour réaliser des diminutions de l'encolure sur le dos du gilet? j'ai diminuer les 13m centrales après avoir fait 4rangs de côté, mais je ne comprend pas la suite : diminuer à 6m du bord sur l'endroit = 2m end ( m lis au point mousse, 1 m end, 1 m env, 1 m end, 1 m env). Après les 6m = glisser 1m à l'end, 1 m end, passer la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée. Avant les 6m : 2m ens à l'end.

DROPS Design 13.05.2013 kl. 09:18:

Bonjour Madame Pflieger, les diminutions pour l'encolure se font sur l'endroit, à 6 m point mousse des bords, ainsi pour l'un des côtés vous diminuerez après les 6 m point mousse de la bordure du col, pour l'autre côté vous diminuerez avant les 6 m point mousse. Bon tricot !

Hei! stolpemasker er rillestrikk, det er for at arbeidet ikke skal krølle seg e.l.

Sissel 18.05.2008 - 11:55:

Hvordan strikker man stolpemasker??

DROPS Design 22.03.2008 - 02:17:

The translations for the Diagrams for all Garnstudio patterns are included within the text of the Pattern itself. If you look you will find lines starting with an = sign. These are the translations, and they are given in the exact same vertical order as the chart symbols within the diagram.

Karen 22.03.2008 - 01:16:

I do not see the English translation for the symbols on chart. Also, the 4 lines beginning with "=" do not have symbols before them. Are these listed elsewhere? Thanks.

Jenny 23.11.2006 - 20:24:

Som du ser på diagramet(M 1)så är det uppdelat i 3 delar:A,B,C.Läs noga igenom & räkna maskorna/mönsterdel så ska du se att det stämmer med ditt antal maskor(=din storlek)på stickan! Lyck till! Mvh.Jenny

kajsa 12.11.2006 - 09:20:

Hej! jag undrar vad som menas med 1A och 1B i början av detta mönster.
