Remember the knitting gauge!
Now work shortened rows as follows:
Work 20 sts, turn piece and work return row
Work 30 sts, turn piece and work return row

Work 20 sts, turn piece and work return row
Continue back and forth on all sts. When piece measures 16½”-18”-19.7”-21.2”-23.6”-26” from MT work shortened rows again as described above. Continue on all sts until piece measures 9”-9.7”-10.6”-11.4”-12½”-13.7” from MT-2 and bind off loosely.
The piece measures approx 34.6”-37.7”-41”-44”-48.7”-53½” at one side and 38.2”-41.4”-44½”-47½”-52.4”-57” at the other.
Back piece: From the RS pick up 1 st in each garter st on back piece, i.e. between the two MT. On next row adjust number of sts to 96-106-116-128-142-156. Work garter st back and forth on needle, at the same time inc 1 st each side (edge st) = 98-108-118-130-144-158 sts. Continue until piece measures 4.7”-5.1”-5½”-6”-6.2”-6.7” from where sts were picked up, and now cast on 10-10-10-7-7-7 new sts each side for sleeve. Then cast on new sts for sleeve each side on every other row: 4-3-3-3-2-2 sts 12-15-15-17-17-19 times and 15-15-11-3-14-5 sts 1 time = 244-248-250-252-254-258 sts. Work all sts back and forth on needle until piece measures 11.7”-12½”-13.4”-14.2”-15”-15.7”. Now bind off the middle 36-38-40-40-42-46 sts for neck and dec 1 st each side towards neckline on next row = 103-104-104-105-105-105 sts left on each shoulder. Bind off loosely when piece measures 12½”-13.4”-14.2”-15”-15.7”-16½” from where sts were picked up for back piece, width of sleeve at sleeve edge = approx 5½”-5½”-6”-6”-6.2”-6.2”.
Left front piece: From the RS pick up 1 st in each garter st on left front piece, i.e. from MT at side towards mid front. Work garter st back and forth on needle, at the same time inc 1 st each side (edge st) = 56-62-66-72-80-87 sts. Continue until piece measures 4.7”-5.1”-5½”-6”-6.2”-6.7” from where sts were picked up, and now cast on sts for sleeve as described for back piece = 129-132-132-133-135-137 sts. Work all sts back and forth on needle until piece measures 8”-8.7”-8.7”-9½”-9½”-10.2”. Now bind off 18-18-18-18-20-22 sts towards mid front for neck and dec to shape the neckline on every other row: 2 sts 4-5-5-5-5-5 times = 103-104-104-105-105-105 sts left on shoulder. Bind off loosely when piece measures 12½”-13.4”-14.2”-15”-15.7”-16½” from where sts were picked up, make sure that width of sleeve at sleeve edge = measurements on back piece.
Right front piece: Worked like left front piece, but mirrored. Note! Remember buttonholes – see explanation above.
Assembly: Sew shoulder/upper sleeve seam, sew in edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.
Neckline: From RS pick up 100-140 sts on needle size 3 mm [US 2or3] with Fabel. Work 6 rows garter st and bind off loosely.
Cuffs: Pick up 1 st in each garter st along bottom edge of sleeve. On next row adjust number of sts to 68-68-72-72-78-78. Work garter st back and forth on needle and bind off loosely when cuff measures 6.7”-7”-7”-7½”-7½”-7½” (or desired length).

Assembly: Sew side seams, under arm and cuff seams in one, inside 1 edge st. Sew on buttons ½” from edge on left front piece to fit buttonholes on right front piece.

Crochet border: Beg mid back and crochet a border on crochet hook size 3.5 mm [US E/4] with Fabel round the neck, down along left front piece, along bottom edge, up along right front piece and round the other half of neck as follows: 1 sc, *3 ch, skip approx ½”, 1 sc*, repeat from *-*.

No entiendo cuando dice insertar un mp en el último punto ( para marcar el lado. Me lo podrias explicar. Gracias por todos los patrones. un saludo.

DROPS Design 13.01.2018 kl. 20:38:

Hola Begoña, quiere decir que insertamos un marcapuntos en el último punto para saber donde se encuentra el lado y tenerlo como referencia posteriormente para evitar confusiones y errores.

Antonia Merz-Wieser 15.12.2017 - 23:09:

Hallo Bei der Maschenproben steht 24 M x 48 R. Müsste das nicht 24 x 28 heissen? Beim Rückenteil steht: für den Ärmel aufnehmen ... 15-15-11-3-14-5 M. 1 Mal. Wie ist das zu verstehen? Im Voraus herzlichen Dank für Ihr Antwort.

DROPS Design 18.12.2017 kl. 08:11:

Liebe Frau Merz-Wieser, die Maschenprobe stimmt, sie muß mit krausrippen gestrickt: 48 Reihe kraus rechts = 24 Rippen. Für die Ärmel schlagen Sie neuen Maschen am Ende der Reihe, dh beim Rückenteil am Ende jeder Hin- sowie Rückreihe, beim Vorderteil auf einer Seite. Das Video unten zeigt wie man neuen Maschen am Ende einer Reihe anschlägt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Trish 23.08.2017 - 18:10:

In the instructions for the back piece it says to "cast off when piece measures (for my size) 34 cm from where sts were picked up for back piece, width of sleeve = approx 14 cm". My sleeve width is measuring 25 cm!! Is the 34 cm correct? I have knitted the left front and when the sleeve width measures 14 cm the front piece armpit to top of shoulder measures 24 cm. This looks correct and I am wondering if there was a typo with the numbers for the back piece?

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 12:43:

Dear Mrs Trish, in 2nd size, you are casting on new sts for sleeve when piece measures 13 cm from picked up sts and cast off for shoulder/sleeve when piece measures 34 cm from picked up sts = you should have 21 cm for sleeve towards armhole and 14 cm for sleeve towards sleeve edge - see also measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Lydia 21.05.2017 - 20:06:

Hallo, ich würde diese Jacke gerne mit 2 verschiedenen Farben des Garnes stricken, immer jeweils 2 Reihen im Wechsel. Ist das machbar? Oder bekomme ich dann Probleme bei den verkürzten Reihen? Bin leider noch relativ unerfahren... Liebe Grüße, Lydia

Miriam Palmer 01.02.2017 - 19:07:

Do I complete right sleeve before doing left front piece. There are no instructions on how to do right after center bind off...Thanks

DROPS Design 02.02.2017 kl. 10:04:

Dear Mrs Palmer, you first work left front piece picking up sts from bottom edge, then cast on new sts on the side for sleeves, cast off for neck and then cast off remaining sts for shoulder. Work then right front piece the same way, ie picking up sts from bottom edge, cast on new sts for sleeve and cast off sts for neck then cast off remaining sts. Sew shoulder seam and pick up sts along sleeve edge to work cuff. Happy knitting!

En dejlig trøje - hvis bare der ikke havde været fejl i opskriften! :-( Jeg har lagt den til side i håb om, at jeg en dag får mod på at pille den op og starte forfra. :-((

DROPS Design 01.11.2016 kl. 10:35:

Hej Elsebeth. Opskriften burde vaere korrekt. Men hvad om du angiver hvor du mener der er fejl og hvilken str, saa kan vi kigge opskriften igennem og rette eller hjaelpe dig med at komme videre.

Ebba Berglund 25.02.2015 - 14:05:

Vilken storlek skall jag välja? Jag har bystmått 106 cm.

DROPS Design 26.02.2015 kl. 10:47:

Hej Ebba. Se maalskitsen nederst. Umiddelbart ligger du nok paa en XL (53-54 cm over brystet), men tjek ogsaa de övrige maal. God fornöjelse.

Coby 17.07.2013 - 15:44:

Hoeveel steken moet ik bij de hals opnemen? In het patroon staat 100 tot 140. Ik kom uit op 182. Doe ik iets fout?

DROPS Design 17.07.2013 kl. 16:46:

Hoi Coby. Met de juiste stekenverhouding moet je tussen de 100 en 140 st hebben voor het halsboord (140 voor de grootste maat). Heb je te veel steken dan kan het gebeuren dat je rand niet mooi glad wordt. Maar je kan in de eerste nld dan gelijkmatig st samen breien, zodat je eindigt op de gevraagde 100-140 steken. Succes.

Alessandra 23.02.2013 - 16:45:

Salve! Questo modello è bellissimo, ma non ho mai lavorato una maglia a pezzi. Come faccio a regolarmi con il numero di maglie con cui partire, considerato che ho degli avanzi di lana da lavorare con i ferri 6,5 e che la mia taglia è la XS? Posso anche usare i ferri "normali", senza dover usare necessariamente i circolari? Grazie infinite e spero di poter cominciare subito il mio lavoro. Cordialità. Alessandra

DROPS Design 06.04.2013 kl. 16:08:

Buongiorno Alessandra, è estremamente importante che il campione corrisponda con quello indicato: può provare con il suo filato a lavorare il campione e vedere se corrisponde, altrimenti deve cercare un filato che le dia il campione indicato e poi seguire le misura per la XS. Inoltre, nel modello è indicato l'uso dei ferri circolari perchè il n° di maglie è elevato per i f. dritti, se ha dei f. dritti che riescono a contenere tutte le m. può tranquillamente usarli. Buon lavoro!
