When the rib measures 2 cm , make a buttonhole on the appropriate side as follows: bind off the 6th and 7th sts and cast on 2 new sts over the bound-off sts on the next row. When the rib measures 5-5 (6-6-6-6) cm , put the 11 buttonband sts on each side on a stitch holder, change to larger circular needles and knit Pattern, increasing 1 st on each edge (center front) for seam - knit this st in garter st throughout = 247-263 (251-267-279-291) sts. When the work measures 15-15 (16-16-16-16) cm , knit the next row as follows: 1 edge st, 12 sts pattern, put 30 sts on a stitch holder for pocket, 161-177 (165-181-193-205) sts pattern, put 30 sts on a stitch holder for pocket, 12 sts pattern, 1 edge st.
On the next row, put the pocket lining in on the needles in the opening over the 30 sts on the stitch holder. Continue with Pattern.

Ich stricke die Kinderjacke in Grösse 5/6. Beim Ärmel fehlt diese Angabe. Dafür gibt es die Zunahmen für Größe 3/4 "zweimal". Ich vermute, dass ich in jeder 5. Reihe 2 Maschen zunehmen muss. Ist das korrekt?

Elke Willems 29.06.2019 - 16:37:

Ich vermisse in der Anleitung das Diagramm M1 für das Muster.

Liebe Frau Willems, bei der Kinderjacke gibt es kein Diagram, man muss im Muster stricken - die deutsche Anleitung wurde angepasst, danke für den Hinweis. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hej! Vil gerne strikke drops 59-16 og mangle hvilken løbelængde det udgået Karisma Uld- Tweed havde? Det er jo ikke sikkert at det har samme løbelængder, som Jeres alternative garn. MVH Birgitte Hylander Andreasse

Hej Birgitte. Her er alt du vil vide om Karisma Uld-Tweed. (Kan ogsaa ses ved at klikke paa "Udgået"). God fornöjelse.

Ärm-ökningen för 5/6 år finns inte beskrivet, däremot 3/4 har två olika beskrivningar. Vad gäller för 5/6 år?
