Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Knitting Gauge: 15 sts x 22 rounds on needles size 6 mm in pattern (front and back piece) = 10 x 10 cm and 15 sts x 19 rows of stocking sts (sleeves) = 10 x 10 cm with 1 thread of Cotton Viscose and 1 thread of Alpaca.

Lace pattern: See diagrams M.1 – there is one diagram for each size. Diagram shows 1/8 of the piece and only every other round. Rounds 2, 4, 6 and all even rounds are worked in stocking sts out to the rib (= the last 6 rounds in diagram), thereafter knit K over K and P over P so the rib will be a total of 11 rounds. M.2 = the rib for the sleeves.

Front and Back piece: The cardigan is knitted in a circle from the centre back. Cast on 8 sts with 1 thread of Cotton Viscose and 1 thread of Alpaca and distribute them evenly on 4 double pointed needles. Knit in pattern according to diagram M.1 – see explanation above. Inc. 8 sts on every other row according to diagram - change to longer circular needles as you go along.

Size S/M: Knit the round marked with an arrow for the armholes as follows: Make a yo, K2 tog. make a yo (as the first 3 windows in diagram shows). Knit 21 sts with another colour (this thread is taken out later and the sleeves are knitted from here and downwards). Knit 63 sts according to diagram, knit the next 21 sts with another colour (= 2nd armhole). Continue diagram as before.

Size M/L: Knit the round marked with an arrow for the armholes as follows: Make a yo, K2 tog. make a yo (as the first 3 windows in diagram shows). Knit 26 sts with another colour (this thread is taken out later and the sleeves are knitted from here and downwards). Knit 67 sts according the diagram, knit the next 26 sts with another colour (= 2nd armhole). Continue diagram as before.

Size XL: Knit the round marked with an arrow for the armholes as follows: Make a yo, K2 tog. make a yo (as the first 3 windows in diagram shows). Knit 30 sts with another colour (this thread is taken out later and the sleeves are knitted from here and downwards). Knit 72 sts according the diagram, knit the next 30 sts with another colour (= 2nd armhole). Continue diagram as before.

Last round in diagram is the binding off round. There is a total of 448-496-544 sts on the bind off round. The piece should measure approx 50-55-60 cm from the centre and out (= 100-110-120 cm in diameter).

Sleeves: Pick up sts for the sleeves from the thread which was knitted in another colour. The sleeves are knitted from top down. Cut this thread in the middle and use 2 needles to put the sts on each side onto the needles (then pull the thread out) = 21-26-30 sts on each needle/side. Put all the sts on a small circular needle = 42-52-60 sts. Pick up 4 additional sts for the top of the sleeve- top is where the sleeve is closest to the other sleeve – and 2 extra sts at the bottom (underneath) of the sleeve = 48-58-66 sts. Start knitting from underneath the sleeve – insert a marking thread here. P 1 round and continue in stocking sts. When the sleeve measures 4 cm bind off 1 st each side of the marking thread. Repeat to bind off 2 sts on every 6-4-2.5 cm a total of 6-8-12 times = 36-42-42 sts. When the piece measures 34 cm continue in M.2. When the piece measures 52 cm bind off loosely – remember to bind off at the 4th, 8th or 12th round as shown in diagram (= pattern round). NB: Try the cardigan on before binding off the sleeves to make sure the sleeves are the right length.

Ich beabsichtige, diese Jacke zu stricken, möchte aber nur einfädig stricken. Welches Garn eignet sich da am besten?

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 12:36:

Liebe Ines, DROPS Cotton Viscose und Alpaca gehören beide zur Garngruppe A, so daß Sie mit 1 Faden Garngruppe C stricken können - Hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternativen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Céline 08.03.2018 - 16:29:

Bonjour . Si j ai bien compris pour les manches on tricote sur un fil d’une autre couleur mais en suivant le diagramme et ensuite on fait le deuxième rang en continuant à suivre le diagramme mais dans la couleur du pull .

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Céline, tout à fait, on utilise cette technique pour ne pas rabattre les mailles, on relèvera ensuite les mailles pour les manches de chaque côté - une vidéo montre cette façon de faire pour un talon de chaussettes, la technique sera la même ici. Bon tricot!

Veronica 16.10.2017 - 13:34:

Hola. Nunca he twjido con agujas de doble punta o circulares. Me cuesta entender un poco el patron pero sobre todo el tema de las sisas y de como continiar despues. Gracias

DROPS Design 05.11.2017 kl. 12:21:

Hola Veronica. Desafortunadamente este patrón solo se puede trabajar en redondo con agujas circulares/ de doble punta. Te recomiendo ver nuestros tutoriales bajo el patrón o acudir a una tienda de Drops para resolver las dudas que tengas.

Jill 07.02.2016 - 00:40:

Really sorry to ask but just can not work out the sleeve row/s. Ive just mastered reading a chart have happily been knitting away but am absolutely flumexed about the sleeve. do you have a video I think it would help.

DROPS Design 08.02.2016 kl. 12:22:

Dear Jill, to avoid casting off sts for armholes, you work these sts with another yarn, afterwards you will remove this yarn and pick up sts on both sides of this to work sleeve. The video below shows how to do with a sock, same technique can be used here. Happy knitting!

Tereza 15.10.2015 - 09:37:

Dobrý den. Líbí se mi tento kabátek. Koukala jsem, že příze Alpaka č.6347 se již nevyrábí. Můžu Vás poprosit, zda by jste mi nemohli napsat alternativu, která lze místo ní použít. Líbí se mi modrá barva - šla by použít námořnická modrá č. 5575 nebo ingigo č. 4305 k barvičce CottonViscose č. 22. Podle fotky se to špatně porovnává, zda by barva seděla. Děkuji za odpověď Tereza

DROPS Design 03.03.2016 kl. 12:53:

Dobrý den, Terezo, ke Cotton Viscose č.22 se námořnická Alpaca 5575 moc nehodí - vhodnější by byla modrá 6790, zmíněná indigo 4305 nebo tyrkysová/šedá 6309. Hodně zdaru!

Angelique 13.08.2015 - 11:57:

Hallo, ik ben bij de mouw aangekomen en ik heb 60 steken wanneer ik beide mouwen over zet. Dan moet ik toch per 30 steken gaan breien om 2 mouwen te krijgen. Dan resteert er dus 18 st per mouw aan het eind bij maat S. Lees ik dit goed? Groetjes,...

DROPS Design 13.08.2015 kl. 13:59:

Hoi Angelique. Voor maat S heb je 21 st boven en onder voor de mouw = 42 st voor 1 mouw. Je neemt dan 4 st op boven op de mouw en 2 st op midden onder de mouw = 48 st op de nld. De minderingen na 4 cm: 2 st op elke 6 cm in totaal 6 keer = 12 st minder = 36 st over aan het eind van de mouw.

Elsa 19.07.2015 - 15:18:

Bonjour merci pour ce gilet, j'aime beaucoup. mais j'ai du mal à comprendre le rang avec la fleche. nous devons mettre sur un autre fil les 21 mailles des manches, mais en continuant le tour du corps, doit on rajouter ces 21 mailles? ou alors il y a 21 mailles X 2 en moins pour le corps? merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 15:33:

Bonjour Elsa, on tricote ces 21 m sur un fil d'une autre couleur dit "fil perdu", on reprend ensuite les fils du modèle pour tricoter les mailles suivantes et on tricote de nouveau 21 m avec un fil d'une autre couleur. Ces fils seront ensuite retirés et on relèvera les mailles de chaque côté pour tricoter les manches. Retrouvez cette technique en vidéo sur des chaussettes. Bon tricot!

Gantier 07.06.2015 - 21:08:

J ai un soucis pour la couleur Alpaca ,vous indiqué coloris n°6347 bleu jean et sur le nuancier le 6347 est violet merci cordialement

DROPS Design 08.06.2015 kl. 08:59:

Bonjour Mme Gantier, il peut arriver que le nom de certaines couleurs soit modifié, fiez-vous au numéro en référence, soit le 6347. Bon tricot!

Ingeborg 28.05.2015 - 14:48:

Hej, håller på att sticka denna jättefina kofta men har stött på patrull. Jag kommit förbi hela "slätpartiet" (stjärnan) och börjat med bara spetsmönstret, men där får jag inte ihop det. stickar-repar upp-stickar osv. Är det nåt tryckfel i mönstret eller är det bara jag som hamnar sett? Skriver upp varje maska i mönstret på kollegieblock m för m, ändå stämmer det inte. Med vänlig hälsning Ingeborg

DROPS Design 29.05.2015 kl. 11:13:

Hej Ingeborg, Mönstret stämmer, vad är det som blir fel? Vilket varv i diagrammet...? Kan du evt fråge i butiken där du har köpt garnet? Lycka till!

Maryver 19.05.2015 - 09:12:

Tout d'abord, un grand merci pour tous ces modèles. Je n'arrive pas à bien lire les diagrammes. Existe-t-il une solution ? Bonne journée. Salutations distinguées.

DROPS Design 19.05.2015 kl. 11:37:

Bonjour Mme Maryver et merci, pour mieux lire le diagramme, vous pouvez l'agrandir à la photocopieuse. Commencez en bas à droite et lisez de droite à gauche tous les tours (1 case = 1 m x 1 rang). Voir également ici. Bon tricot!
