Pattern instructions

Knitting Gauge: 23 sts x 30 rows on needles size 3 mm with Alpaca in stocking sts. = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern: See diagrams M.1 to M.6. The diagrams are seen from the right side.

Net pattern: The pattern is knitted over all sts inc. the edge sts. 1st and 3rd row (= wrong side): P over all sts. 2nd row
(= right side): *K2 tog. make a yo*, repeat from *-* and finish off with K1. 4th row (= right side): K1, *make a yo, slip a st as if to knit, K1, psso*, repeat from *-*. Repeat row 1 to 4 a total of 4 times.

Bind off tips (for the neck shaping): Bind off after 1 edge st: Slip a st as if to knit, K1 psso. Bind off before 1 edge st: K2 tog.

Body: Please read all of the pattern before you knit! The cardigan is knitted forward and backward on circular needles starting from the centre mid front. Cast on 176-194-212-239-257 sts (inclusive of 1 edge st each side mid front) on circular needles size 3.5 with Alpaca. Purl 1st row from the wrong side.
Knit the next row from the right side as follows: 1 edge st (knitted in garter sts on all rows), M.1A over the next 171-189-207-234-252 sts, M.1B (= 3 sts) and 1 edge st (knitted in garter sts on all rows). When the piece measures 5 cm – adjust the length to a finished pattern repeat - knit 5 rows of garter sts beginning from the right side. Continue in M.2 with an edge st each side mid front. Insert a marking thread 45-49-54-60-65 sts in from each side (= 86-96-104-119-127 sts between the marking threads for the back). At the same time when the piece measures 8-8-8-10-10 cm inc. 1 st both sides of the marking thread on every 3.5-3.5-3.5-4-4.5 cm a total of 5-5-5-4-4 times = 196-214-232-255-273 sts – knit new sts in stocking sts, when finished increasing remove the marking threads. When the piece measures 22-23-24-25-26 – make sure the next row is from the wrong side and uyou have knitted at least 2 rows of stocking sts after a row of lace holes – knit M.3 – at the same time on the last row of M.3, adjust the number of sts to 195-219-235-259-275. After M.3 knit the next row from the right side as follows: 1 edge st, M.4 over the next 192-216-232-256-272 sts, 1 stocking st and 1 edge st. Continue the pattern like this – at the same time on the last row of M.4 bind off 16 sts evenly distributed on row = 179-203-219-243-259 sts. Continue in net pattern – see explanation above. Repeat the net pattern 3 times and change to M.3 at the same time inc. 17 sts evenly distributed on row on the first row of M.3 = 196-214-232-255-273 sts. At the same time on the last row of M.3 knit from the wrong side as follows: Knit 45-49-54-58-63 sts (= left front), bind off 10-10-10-12-12 sts for the armhole, knit 86-96-104-115-123 (= back piece), bind off 10-10-10-12-12 sts for the armhole and knit the last 45-49-54-58-63 sts (= right front). The piece now measures approx 32-33-34-35-36 cm. Now put the work aside and knit the sleeves.

Sleeve: Cast on 54-54-54-63-63 sts on double pointed needles 3.5 with Alpaca. K 1 round and continue with M.1A. When the piece measures 11 cm - adjust the length to a finished pattern repeat – knit M.5A. Now knit M.2 – make sure the holes are nicely located over the “bubbles”. At the same time when the piece measures 15 cm inc. 2 sts mid under arm a total of 12-14-17-15-17 times on every: Size S: 8th round, Size M: 7th round, Size L: Alternate between every 5th and 6th round, Size XL: 6th round, Size XXL: 5th round. Incorporate the new sts in pattern as you go along. At the same time when the piece measures approx 38-37-37-36-36 cm – make sure the numbers of rounds in stocking sts (in M.2) are the same as for the body before M.3 – knit M.3. After M.3 knit M.4 – adjust the pattern so a lace pattern is at the centre top of the sleeve – see the arrow in diagram. At the same time on the last round of M.4 bind off 3-3-3-4-4- sts evenly distributed. Continue in net pattern as for the body but knit the first and third round (i.e. no pattern). Continue in M.3 at the same time on the 1st round inc 3-3-3-4-4 sts evenly distributed. After all dec and inc there are 78-82-88-93-97 sts on round. At the same time on the last round in M.3 ( the piece now measures 48-47-47-46-46 cm) bind off 10-10-10-12-12 sts at the centre underneath the sleeve = 68-72-78-81-85 sts. Put the remaining sts on a thread and knit another sleeve.

Yoke:
Put the sleeves in on the same circular needle as the body where you bound off for armholes = 312-338-368-393-419 sts. Knit 1 row from the right side at the same time adjusting the number of sts to 306-338-368-386-418. Continue to knit and bind off according to M.6 (remember the edge st at each side as before). At the same time bind off 1 st for the V neck at the centre front on every other row – see bind off tips: a total of 30-31-33-34-36 times. After all bind off’s there are 69-77-78-86-92 sts left on row. When finish with M.6 and the V neck shaping continue in stocking sts until the piece measures 52-54-56-58-60 cm. K 1 row from the right side at the same time adjusting the number of sts evenly distributed on row to approx 35-45 sts. Bind off loosely on the next row.

Assembly: Sew the openings under the arms.
Front and neck edge: Pick up 278 – 323 sts (divisible by 5 + 3) on circular needle size 3 with Alpaca – Pick up from the right side up along the right front piece, to the back and down along the left front piece. Knit 2 rows of garter sts. Continue as follows: 1st row (=the wrong side): *K3, P2*, repeat from *-* and finish with K3. 2nd row: K over all sts.
Repeat row 1 and 2 – NB: In the bend where the neck shape starts on both front pieces, inc. 1 st on every other row a total of 3 times so the edge doesn’t get too tight. It looks nicest to inc. in the 3rd P st or 2nd K st (seen from the right side). Knit the new sts the same as the st you inc. in. At the same time when the front edge measures approx. 1 cm bind off for 6 – 7 button holes evenly distributed on the right front edge. 1 button hole = bind off 2 sts and cast on 2 new sts over the bound off sts on the next row. The first button hole should be 1-2 cm from the bottom edge and the top should be at the bend where the v neck starts. When the front edge measures approx 2.5 to 3 cm bind off loosely from the wrong side in with K over K and P over P.

Sorry begrijp er niets van, het gaat om patroon 94-14 bij het meerderen in het telpatroon M2 aan beide zijden van de markeerdraden voor de zijnaden. U spreekt van A3 maar volgens mij ben je dan bezig met telpatroon M2. Groetjes Alice

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 18:04:

Dag Alice,

Je hebt gelijk, ik had een fout gemaakt, ik bedoel inderdaad M.2 in plaats van A.3

Alice 19.12.2018 - 18:44:

Hallo bedankt voor uw snelle antwoord. Maar komt dan de teltekening M2 dan nog goed, als je de gemeerderde steken na de markering in tricot moet breien? Groetjes en bedankt. Alice

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 10:32:

Dag Alice,

Ja, omdat je de gemeerderde steken in tricotsteek breit, en en niet in A.3 heb je hier geen last van.

Alice 16.12.2018 - 14:31:

Hallo ik ben Alice een beginnende breister, ik ben op een hoogte van 10 cm voor meerdering langst de markeerdraden, moet ik de gemeerderde steken ook in het patroon M2 breien of enkel de nieuwe steken in tricot? Vriendelijke groeten en dank bij voorbaat. Alice

DROPS Design 18.12.2018 kl. 10:59:

Dag Alice,

De gemeerderde steken in de zijnaden brei je in tricotsteek.

Linda Douglas 14.11.2018 - 06:21:

1. Does M2 pattern beginon a wrongside row so that the eyelets are being made on the right side? 2. What does ‘ adjust length to a finished pattern repeat’ mean? Patterns from Drops are very poorly written and uoset me dvery time. They’re not clear nor written by a knitter. Ive knitted for years but have to rewrite then so they’re understandable. why put patterns in this format if you truly wsnt us to knit them? :(

DROPS Design 14.11.2018 kl. 09:04:

Dear Mrs Douglas, that's right, M.2 is worked starting from WS (= you first work 5 rows with M.1 starting from RS = last row will be worked from RS so that M.2 starts on next row from WS). "Adjust the length to a finished pattern repeat" means to work more or less than the cm given, the most important will be here that you have worked a whole repeat of the diagram in height. Happy knitting!

Ellen Van Der Poel 23.06.2017 - 16:56:

Volgens mij zit er een fout in het patroon bij de meerderingen: van 234 steken met 4 keer 2 steken meerderen is volgens mij geen 255 maar 242 st. Daarna moet er geminderd worden van 255 naar 259 steken. Ik ben hier even de weg kwijt! Met vriendelijke groet, Ellen van der Poel

DROPS Design 29.06.2017 kl. 21:11:

Hoi Ellen, In beide zijkanten heb je een markeerdraad en je meerdert telkens aan beide kanten van de markeerdraad, dus per keer meerder je 4 steken en dan komen er dus in totaal 16 steken meer op de naald.

Kirsten 17.10.2015 - 10:58:

Der Kettrand der Kante zieht sich trotz sehr lockerer Technik (+eine ganze Nadelnr. größer) sehr stark zusammen, wodurch die ganze Optik etwas leidet. Hier würde ich empfehlen anstatt den Rand zum Schluss anzustricken, ihn als Blende gleich mit ins Muster einzuarbeiten. Außerdem sind Silberknöpfe nicht empfehlenswert. Sie sind für die zarte Jacke viel zu schwer.

Kirsten 29.09.2015 - 23:02:

Ich habe eine Frage zum Ärmel. Wenn ich aus dem Muster M1A komme, ist die letzte Runde links. M5A beginnt dann auf der rechten Seite. Die Noppe würde dann auf der linken Seite gestrickt werden. Das kann ja eigentlich nicht richtig sein, oder?

DROPS Design 03.10.2015 kl. 11:44:

Sie stricken die Ärmel in Runden, nicht in Hin- und Rück-R, dann ergibt sich das Problem mit der Noppe nicht. Das ist in der Anleitung leider etwas missverständlich, die Anleitung wird diesbezüglich gleich verdeutlicht.

Elisabeth 21.08.2013 - 14:15:

Merci pour votre réponse, maintenant c'est clair. Bonne journée

Elisabeth K. 20.08.2013 - 13:21:

Bonjour, pouvez-vous, svp, m'aider à propos de M6 : quand le diagramme indique 2 m ens en début de rg (par ex. rg 8)faut-il continuer cette diminution pendant tout le rang ? Et quand est-il quand elle est en fin de rg (par ex. rg 16) ? De plus, je ne vois pas comment avoir uniquement entre 69 et 92 m en ne diminuant que pour l'encolure. Merci de votre aide pour que je puisse avancer. Bien cordialement

DROPS Design 21.08.2013 kl. 12:56:

Bonjour Elisabeth, le diagramme M.2 se tricote sur 14 m et 11 rangs (1 case = 1 m x 1 rang) et se lit en commençant en bas à droite vers la gauche sur l'envers, ainsi le 1er rang ajouré (=4ème rang du diag.) se tricote ainsi : 1 m end, 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté, 5 m end, 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté, 4 m end. Pour l'empiècement, on répète le diag. M.6 sur toutes les mailles, ainsi on diminue régulièrement pour former l'empiècement. Bon tricot!

Nellekegroeneweg 04.06.2012 - 22:09:

Inmiddels ben ik bij het bovenstuk bezig maar ik kom er helaas niet uit. Het patroon M6 past 22 keer in de 354-2 kantsteken is 352 steken van de bovenpas. Maar doordat ik voor de schuine hals uistsnijding ook moet minderen past op den duur niet meer 22 keer het patroon er in dus ook niet het aantal minderingen wat aangegeven wordt in M6. Ik hoop dat u begrijpt wat ik bedoel en dat u me kunt helpen want hoewel ik het al verschillende malen opnieuw hebt geprobeerd wil ik het toch graag afmaken.

DROPS Design 06.06.2012 kl. 09:30:

Het klopt dat u tegelijkertijd met de minderingen volgens M6 ook moet minderen voor de halslijn. Dat betekent dan ook dat de herhaling van M6 niet meer past (22 keer). U heeft dus minder st per herhaling M6 dan op de teltekening. U breit dan de st zoals ze zich voordoen (of zo goed mogelijk passen met het motief), maar de minderingen moeten blijven doorgaan om uit te komen op het correcte aantal st: 46 incl. de 2 kantst.
