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

Back:
Cast on 86-92-98-104-110 sts on smaller needles. Knit 5 rows seed st, change to larger needles and Pattern 1 - start pattern at lower right corner on chart for all sizes, but do not knit 1 edge st at each side in the pattern.
When the piece measures 7 cm inc 1 st at each side every 8 cm a total of 3 times = 92-98-104-110-116 sts - the increased sts are knit in the pattern as you go along.
When the piece measures 34-35-36-37-38 cm bind off for armhole at each side every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 2-3-4-5-6 times = 82 sts remain for all sizes. When the piece measures 52-54-56-58-60 cm bind off the center 20 sts for the neck. On the next row dec 1 st at each neck edge = 30 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62 cm.

Right front:
Cast on 44-47-50-53-56 sts on smaller needles. Knit 5 rows seed st, change to larger needles and Pattern 1, starting from center front edge at appropriate arrow on the chart (1 edge st at each side is not knit in the pattern).
When the piece measures 7 cm inc 1 st at the side edge every 8 cm a total of 3 times = 47-50-53-56-59 sts - the increased sts are knit in the pattern as you go along.
Read the entire next section before knitting:
Neckband: When the piece measures 30-32-34-36-38 cm bind off 24 sts at center front edge for neck. Then dec 1 st for the neck on alternately every 4th and 5th row a total of 13 times.
Armhole: At the same time when the piece measures 34-35-36-37-38 cm bind off for armhole at the side as on back.
After all armhole and neck shaping is complete 5 sts remain on each shoulder. Bind off when the piece measures 54-56-58-60-62 cm.

Left front:
Cast on and knit the same as the right - start Pattern 1 at lower right corner so that the pattern will be the same on each side at the center front – for armhole and neck reverse all shaping.

Sleeve:
Cast on 42-42-50-50-50 sts on smaller needles. Knit Pattern 2 for 13 cm. Change to larger needles and Pattern 1, increasing 8-8-6-6-6 sts evenly distributed on the 1st row = 50-50-56-56-56 sts. When the piece measures 16 cm inc 1 st at each side every 7-6-6-5-4 rows a total of 12-14-13-15-17 times = 74-78-82-86-90 sts - the increased sts are knit in the pattern as you go along.
When sleeve measures 49-49-47-47-45 cm bind off for sleeve cap at each side every other row: 4 sts 1 time, 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 3 times, 1 st 0-0-4-5-8 times, then bind off 2 sts at each side until the piece measures 55-56-56-57-57 cm and then bind off 3 sts 1 time. The piece measures approx. 56-57-57-58-58 cm, bind off the remaining sts.

Assembly:
Right collar: Pick up 58 sts on smaller needles along left neck edge and knit approx. 12 cm of Pattern 2 - see instructions above, put all sts on a st holder.
Left collar: knit the same as the right collar.
Sew shoulder seams.

Right button band and neckband:
Pick up on smaller circular needles approx. 62-76 sts along right button band, then put 58 sts from right collar back on needles and pick up approx. 12 sts to center back = 132 -146 sts. Knit 2 rows seed st. On the next row make 5 buttonholes evenly distributed along button bands - the bottom should be approx. 1 cm from bottom edge and the top should be just before the collar starts. 1 buttonhole = K 2 tog, yo.
Knit 1 row seed st more, then bind off sts around back of the neck and along the collar in seed st.
Continue with 3 rows seed st along button bands – K 2 tog the 2 sts at the top of button bands every row so that there will be a smooth transition from neckband. After these 3 rows bind off the remaining sts in seed st.
Left button band and neckband: Knit the same as the right, reversing all shaping and without buttonholes.
Sew in sleeves. Sew sleeve and side seams using edge sts as a seam allowance. Sew on buttons.

Bonjour, pourriez vous m'expliquer la diminution des emenchures dos pour la petite taille (xs) svp. D'avance merci pour votre retour. Belle journée ;-)

DROPS Design 24.04.2018 kl. 08:52:

Bonjour Nicole, pour les emmanchures, vous rabattez pour le dos au début de chaque rang de chaque côté (= sur l'endroit et sur l'envers): 1 x 3 m et 1 x 2 m, soit 5 m de chaque côté (= 10 m au total), il reste 82 m. Pour les emmanchures des devants, rabattez au début du rang qui commence par le côté emmanchure. Bon tricot!

Bettina Foltas 17.04.2018 - 16:29:

Muster 2 soll am Vorderteil quer angestrickt werden. Wie verbinde ich das Muster mit den abgeketteten Maschen in Brusthöhe? Verläuft das Muster 2 dann im Vorderteil um 90° gedreht im Vergleich zum Ärmel?

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 08:54:

Liebe Frau Fuchs, die 58 M Muster 2 werden nicht abgekettet sondern stillgelegt, bei der Blende/Halskante werden diese Maschen zurüick auf der Nadel gelegt, wenn Sie die Maschen auffassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Helenor Dale 10.03.2018 - 14:16:

After completing the 5 rows of seed stitch rib, is my next row the right side or wrong side of the work?

DROPS Design 11.03.2018 kl. 16:24:

Dear Helenor, cast on row + 5 rows in seed stitch = 6 rows. The next row is the right side.

Frau Foltas 02.02.2018 - 09:39:

Muster M1 nach Diagramm ist klar. Aber was bedeutet M2 ?? Vielen Dank für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 02.02.2018 kl. 13:32:

Liebe Frau Foltas, M.1 ist Diagram aber M.2 wird oben Reihe nach Reihe beschrieben - siehe am Anfang der schriftlichen Anleitung. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Monica Conrad 07.10.2017 - 20:55:

Wo ist denn das Diagramm für M1?

DROPS Design 08.10.2017 kl. 17:30:

Liebe Monica. M.1 ist unter Arm im diagramm

Jennifer Schwarz 13.08.2017 - 18:16:

Where is the chart for Pattern 1?

DROPS Design 13.08.2017 kl. 20:48:

Dear Jennifer, the chart M.1. is just below the chart of the sleeve.

Kim Kuruc 10.07.2017 - 21:48:

When should I start following "M2" or Pattern 2 on the front pieces? It does not include this in the British or American English version of the instructions. Thank you.

DROPS Design 11.07.2017 kl. 08:33:

Hi Kim, Yes it does, here it is: Assembly: Right collar: Pick up 58 sts on smaller needles along left neck edge and knit approx. 12 cm of Pattern 2 - see instructions above, put all sts on a st holder.

Ute Würtenberger 16.05.2017 - 19:00:

Hallo, was soll beim Rückenteil bedeuten: "Wenn die Arbeit 7 cm misst, 1M auf jeder Seite alle 8.cm total 3mal aufnehmen."?

DROPS Design 17.05.2017 kl. 08:36:

Liebe Frau Würtenberg, nach 7 cm von der Anschlagskante nehmen Sie beidseitig 1 M. *Dann 8 cm stricken und noch beidseitig zunehmen*, von *-* insgesamt 2 mal wiederhohlen = 3 M wurden auf beide Seite zugenommen = es gibt jetzt 6 M mehr auf den Nadel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Josefina Pina 02.05.2017 - 18:13:

I want to start this cardigan with the drops muskat yarn. Do I have to make it slightly bigger to consider shrink after a wash or will stay the same?

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 kl. 08:43:

Dear Mrs Pina, you can always wash your swatch (following care instructions on shademap + general care tips, but you should use normal size as shown in measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Damaris Nanjari 17.11.2016 - 21:40:

El patron no esta de acuerdo a la foto de la modelo, no es el mismo, agradeceria revisar por que me gustaria mucho poder realizarlo.

DROPS Design 19.11.2016 kl. 18:08:

Hola Damaris. El patrón y la foto están correctos. La parte del patrón que se llama "cuello" se refiere a los calados del delantero.
