Knitting tension: 26 sts x 52 rows on needles size 2.5mm in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Garter sts: Knit all rows

Knitting tips: Every time you turn the piece, slip 1 st after turning and tighten thread before continuing. Do this to avoid holes in transitions.

Start on left front, knit towards the sleeve, the back, the other sleeve and finish with right front.
Loosely cast on 70-76-86 (96-104) sts with light mint on needle size 2.5 and knit 10 rows garter sts (= front band, 1st row = right side). Continue as follows – read Knitting tips: *2 rows garter sts over the first 46-50-57 (65-70) sts with lime (i.e. knit from right side over the first 46-50-57 (65-70) sts, turn the piece and knit back), 2 rows garter sts over the first 64-70-80 (90-98) sts with lime, 2 rows garter sts over all 70-76-86 (96-104) sts with light mint*, repeat from *-* until piece measures 16-18-19 (20.5-22) cm from cast-on row (measured where widest). Now put the outermost 41-45-52 (60-65) sts towards lower edge on a thread (= side) and cast on 36-42-46 (60-70) new sts on beginning of row for sleeve, before continuing as follows:
*2 rows garter sts over the first 41-47-51 (65-75) sts with lime, 2 rows garter sts over the first 59-67-74 (90-103) sts with lime, 2 rows garter sts over all 65-73-80 (96-109) sts with light mint. When piece measures 16-17-18 (18-20) cm from sts cast on for sleeve (measured where widest), cast off the outermost 36-42-46 (60-70) sts towards lower edge of sleeve. Put the 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from thread back on needle and insert a marking thread in piece. Now knit from *-* as described for front piece.
When piece measures 28-31-35 (37-40) cm from marking thread (measured where widest), put the outermost 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from lower edge on a thread (= side). Cast on 36-42-46 (60-70) new sts for sleeve and knit as before from *-* as described for the other sleeve until you have knitted as many rows as on the other sleeve. Cast off the outermost 36-42-46 (60-70) sts towards lower edge of sleeve and put the 41-45-52 (60-65) sts from thread back on needle and continue as before until you have knitted as many rows as on the other front piece. Change to light mint and knit front band as follows: Knit 4 rows garter sts over all sts, on next row make 3 button holes as follows from the right side (i.e. from lower edge towards the top): knit 43-47-55 (63-67) garter sts, yo, K2 tog, knit 10-11-12 (13-15) garter sts, yo, K2 tog, knit 10-11-12 (13-15) sts, yo, K2 tog and finish with K1. Turn and knit garter sts over all sts. Now knit 4 rows garter sts over all sts and cast off loosely.

Assembly: Sew the openings under the arms.
Neck: Pick up 1 st in every other row round the neck using needle size 2.5 and light mint = approx 88-95-102 (106-113) sts. Knit 3 rows garter sts (1st row = wrong side), at the same time, adjusting number of sts evenly on first row to 62-64-66 (70-72). Cast off in rib, K1, P1.
Sew on buttons.


Right leg: Cast on 52-60-64 (70-74) sts (incl 1 edge st each side) using needle size 2.5 and light mint and knit garter sts. Insert a marking thread when piece measures 4 cm (= turn-up) and measure piece from here. When piece measures 4 cm inc 1 st each side on every 1.5-2-2.5 (3-4) cm a total of 8 times = 68-76-80 (86-90) sts. When piece measures 18-21-24 (29-34) cm, cast off 2 sts each side. Now dec 1 st on one side of piece (= towards mid front) on every other row a total of 2-4-6 (10-12) times = 62-68-70 (72-74) sts. Continue in garter sts until piece measures 36-42-46 (52-58) cm from marking thread. Now knit 2 cm stocking sts and cast off loosely.

Left leg: As right leg, but mirrored.

Assembly: Fold right leg double and sew inner leg seam within 1 edge st – NB! On the lower 4 cm (turn-up) sew with seam on the right side so that it doesn’t show when you turn it. Sew left leg in the same way. Sew together the trousers front and back within 1 edge st and sew the opening between the legs. Turn the 2 cm stocking sts at the top against the wrong side and attach with small, neat sts. – leave a little opening for the elastic band. Turn the turn-ups.

For the pants, I don’t understand what it means by “as right leg, but mirrored” Do I work shaping on opposite side (eg decrease at left side rather than right side) or do I just work it the same, but fold in opposite direction? Hope you can help.

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 08:18:

Hi Jackie, As you say, reversed means decreasing on opposite side to the side you decreased on the right leg. Happy knitting!

Kan ikke helt hitte ud af ærmet, hvis man strikker jakken sidelæns, hvordan kan man så strikke videre til næste ærme? Syntes der mangler video af forklaringer af selve jakken og ikke af andre ting som forklaring :-) havde gjort det nemmere, håber jeg finder ud af det alligevel

Hege Kårbø 20.01.2018 - 16:49:

Dersom man legger opp 70 masker I den minste str blir lengden mer enn 23 cm. Jmf strikkefastheten.

Alexandra 29.11.2017 - 13:51:

Hei, jeg må få ting inn med teskje: Når jeg strikker ermene, er det på samme måte som forklart for forstykke men med annet maske antall?

DROPS Design 06.12.2017 kl. 13:45:

Hej Alexandra. Ja det stemmer, når du har slået masker op til ærmerne, fortsætter du med vendepinde fra *-* som tidligere. God fornøjelse!

Quentin Sandra 19.06.2017 - 22:45:

Hallo liebes Team Nach dem Anschlag soll in der größten Größe 22cm gestrickt werden,gilt diese Angabe für die obere oder die untere kante?

DROPS Design 20.06.2017 kl. 08:23:

Liebe Frau Quentin, diese 22 cm sind für die untere Kante, es wird an der Hals wegen verkürzten Reihen schmaller. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Corinne Orsan 05.12.2016 - 12:52:

Guten Tag, Stimmen die Angaben der Maschenprope ? 26 M X 52 R. ? 52 Reihen ergeben doch sicher mehr als 10 cm. Herzlichen Dank und viele Grüsse

DROPS Design 05.12.2016 kl. 13:34:

Liebe Frau Orsan, Maschenprobe stimmt, es wird 52 Reihen mit Krausrippe, nicht glatt gestrickt, deshalb braucht man mehr Reihen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

You could call it ' TO TONY ' - a play on words for Two toney !

Cathy W 23.08.2016 - 20:35:

Is there an adult version of this? Love it with the knit picks chroma yarn.

DROPS Design 24.08.2016 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour je suis entrain de faire le pantalon mais voilà mon souci je ne comprend pas pour tricoter la jambe gauche comme pr la jambe droite mais en sens inverse!!!c est ptre une question bete mais bon!!merci pr votre aide!!bn jeudi à bientot!!:-*!

DROPS Design 12.05.2016 kl. 09:19:

Bonjour JL, les diminutions côté milieu devant doivent être fait du côté opposé pour la jambe gauche, si pour la 1ère jambe vous avez diminué en début de rang sur l'endroit, pour la 2ème jambe, diminuez en fin de rang sur l'endroit, ainsi vous aurez 2 pièces identiques, mais en vis à vis. Bon tricot!
