When piece measures 52-53-54-55-56 cm = 20 1/2”-21”-21 1/4”-21 5/8”-22” cast on new sts each side for sleeves on every other row (i.e. at the beg of each row) as follows: 1 st 1-2-5-6-8 times, 2 sts 2-4-3-2-1 times, 3 sts 4-2-1-1-1 times and then 16-16-16-15-14 sts 1 time = 122-125-127-129-133 sts. When piece measures 72-74-76-78-80 cm = 28 3/8”-29 1/8”-30”-30 3/4”-31 1/2” bind off the middle 10-11-11-11-11 sts for neck and dec 1 st on neckline on next row = 55-56-57-58-60 sts left on shoulder/sleeve.

After all dec and inc are complete = 55-56-57-58-60 sts left on shoulder/sleeve. Bind off when piece measures 74-76-78-80-82 cm = 29 1/8”-30”-30 3/4”-31 1/2”-32 1/4”.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams.
Cuffs: Pick up 44-44-44-50-50 sts (incl 1 edge st each side) round the sleeve edges on circular needle size 6 mm = US 10. Knit Rib back and forth on needle with 1 edge st each side. When Rib measures 12 cm = 4 3/4” (or desired length – try on the jacket) bind off loosely in Rib.
Sew side and sleeve seams inside 1 edge st.
Rib round back and front pieces: Pick up approx 372 – 444 sts (divisible by 6) on circular needle size 6 mm = US 10 along the entire opening of the jacket – there should be approx 18 sts per 10 cm = 4”, it is important to pick enough sts so that the edge doesn’t become too tight. Knit 6 cm = 2 3/8” Rib and bind off in Rib.

Mitä ihmettä tarkoittaa vasemman etukappaleen ohjeessa "Samalla tehdään lisäykset pyöristettyä reunusta varten etureunaa kohti joka 2. krs:lla (siis jokaisen krs:n lopussa etureunaa kohti): 1 x 3 s, 2-3-4-5-6 x 2 s, 5 x 1 s." Eli todellako lisäykset molemmissa reunoissa? Mitä tarkoittaa etureunaa kohti? Miten lisäykset kannattaa tehdä? Luomalla silmukoita?

Hej, nämä lisäykset tehdään vain keskelle eteen, luomalla työhön uusia silmukoita.

Hallo Drops Team, ich habe gerade die 52cm im RT gestrickt jetzt steht in der Erklärung " nach 52cm auf beiden Seiten bei jeder 2 R neue M anschlagen d.h am Schluss jeder R. Wie ist das gemeint nach jeder R o. nach jeder2 R? Und wenn da steht 3M 4 Mal muss ich dann auf beiden Seiten 6M anschlagen? Danke für Ihre Hilfe

Lilian O. 10.11.2013 - 22:44:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, habe soeben beim Rückenteil die 10 mittleren M. (Größe S) für den Hals abgek. Verstehe die weitere Vorgehensweise nicht: Es heißt "Weiter bei der nächsten R. 1 M. gegen den Hals abk." Bezieht sich die Anleitung nun erst auf die eine Hälfte und im Anschluss daran wird die andere Hälfte der Reihe mit neuem Faden noch die 2cm weitergestrickt? Durch das abk. der mittleren M. besteht ja nun keine Verbindung der gesamten R. mehr. Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe vorab.

DROPS Design 11.11.2013 kl. 07:23:

Liebe Lilian, ja genau - beim Halsausschnitt wird das Teil getrennt und rechts und links vom Ausschnitt bis zur Schulter getrennt hoch gestrickt. Für die Halsrundung wird auf beiden Seiten noch jeweils 1 M abgekettet.

Ich trage Konfektionsgröße 42. Habe mir die Jacke in Größe M nachgestrickt. Sie sieht wunderschön aus und passt sehr gut. Aaaaber: ich sehe darin aus wie eine dicke verhüllte Matrone! Wer keine sehr schlanke Taille hat, sollte von diesem Modell Abstand nehmen.

Hur lång bör rundstickan vara till detta mönster? Jag är inte så van att vid rundstickning, så jag kan inte bedöma det själv. Tack på förhand!
