Knitting tension: 21 sts x 28 rows on needle size 4mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Moss sts: 1st row: *K1. P1*, repeat from *-*. 2nd row: P over K, K over P. Repeat 2nd row.

Pattern: See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The diagrams are seen from the RS.

Buttonhole: Make 4 buttonholes on right front edge from the RS. 1 buttonhole = cast off the 3rd st from the edge and cast on new st in the same place on the return row. Make buttonholes as follows:
Size 1/3 months: 4, 8, 12 and 16 cm
Size 6/9 months: 5, 10, 14 and 18 cm

Dec tips (apply to neckline): Dec inside 4 sts in moss sts + 1 P st (= 5 edge sts) from the RS.
Dec as follows after 5 edge sts: slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso.
Dec as follows before 5 edge sts: K2 tog.

Back and front piece:
The jacket is knitted back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 121-137-153-169 sts (incl 4 front edge sts each side towards mid front) on needle size 4 mm with Muskat and knit 2 rows garter sts (1st row = RS). Knit next row as follows from the RS: 4 front edge sts in moss sts, P1, 112-128-144-160 sts of M.1 and 4 front edge sts in moss sts. Continue pattern like this. At the same time when piece measures 4-5-5-6 cm make buttonhole on right front edge – see explanation above. After M.1 continue in stocking sts with 4 front edge sts in moss sts and 1 P st each side, at the same time dec 11-11-13-13 sts evenly on first row in stocking sts = 110-126-140-156 sts. When piece measures 16-17-19-21 cm knit next row as follows from the RS: 27-31-34-38 sts (= right front piece), cast off 4 sts for armhole, knit 48-56-64-72 sts (= back piece), cast off 4 sts for armhole, knit 27-31-34-38 sts (= left front piece). Now finish each piece separately.

Right front piece: = 27-31-34-38 sts. Dec for armhole on every other row as follows: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2-3-4-5 times = 21-24-26-29 sts. At the same time when piece measures 17-19-21-23 cm dec 1 st towards mid front for neckline on every other row a total of 11-12-12-13 times – see Dec tips = 10-12-14-16 sts left on shoulder. Cast off remaining sts when piece measures 27-29-32-35 cm.

Left front piece: = 27-31-34-38 sts. Knit as right front piece, but mirrored.

Back piece: = 48-56-64-72 sts. Cast off for armholes as described for front piece = 36-42-48-54 sts. When piece measures 23-25-28-30 cm knit moss sts over the middle 22-24-26-28 sts with 1 P st on each side of the moss sts (seen from the RS). After 4 rows with moss sts cast off the the middle 14-16-18-20 sts for neck. Continue with 4 sts in moss sts and 1 P st towards neckline and dec 1 st inside these 5 sts on the next row – see Dec Tips = 10-12-14-16 sts left on each shoulder. Cast off remaining sts when piece measures 27-29-32-35 cm.

Eine sehr schöne Anleitung hat sehr viel Freude gemacht zu stricken.

Anna 05.12.2018 - 20:42:

J'ai réalisé ce très joli modèle, mais arrivée à la tête de manche, il a fallu que j'augmente les diminutions pour avoir la bonne dimension, si j'avais suivi les indications, la tête de manche aurait été bien trop longue ... Il est vrai que je n'ai pas fait d'échantillons, donc je refais ce modèle en commençant par cela cette fois, le gilet sera peut-être plus proportionné, car je l'ai trouvé au final un peu large aussi. :-)))

For the purl after the 4 moss stitches, is this purl in every row?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 08:29:

Dear Karen, the P stitch before M.1 will be worked K from WS so that M.1 will be symetrical on each side. Happy knitting!

Joyce Hanchette 02.11.2018 - 16:21:

Thank you for your response . However I am asking about the decreases for the sleeve cap. My pattern said decrease 3 st each side 2 times. How do I decrease 3 st together?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 08:04:

Dear Mrs Hanchette, you will cast off 3 sts at the beginning of the next 4 rows so that you will have "decreased" 3 sts 2 times on each side. Happy knitting!

Joyce 02.11.2018 - 04:11:

My question concern the Precious Emilia childrens’ sweater. The first shoulder decrease said to decrease 3 stitches on each side,etc. it does not work if I knit 3 together at each end of the row. Should I knit 2together three times at each end? There is no info on how many stitches will be left after all the decreases. I am making the 12 month size and think I will be binding off 22 stitches on the k Last row.

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 08:03:

Hi Joyce, The decreases for the armhole are 2 stitches 2 subsequent rows and then 1 stitch 4 subsequent rows. The decreases for the neck are 1 stitch every 2nd row x 12 (see decrease tip and these start when piece measures 21 cm) . All decreases will leave you with 14 stitches on the shoulder. Happy knitting!

How to read a chart for Precious Emilia sweater

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 10:03:

Dear Joyce, start reading diagram from RS from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left and from WS from the left towards the right. Happy knitting!

Joyce Hanchette 21.10.2018 - 23:51:

I have never used a chart. Is the first row left to right and the next row right to left?

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 07:52:

Hi Joyce, When working back and forth, the first row begins bottom right and is worked to the left, then the second row left to right. Happy knitting!

Hallo, leider komme ich mit der nordischen Erklärung der Strickschriften nicht klar. Können Sie die bitte einmal auf deutsch nennen? Danke. Liebe Grüße

Liebe Frau Ricarda, die deutsche Erklärung zum Strickschriften finden Sie zwischen Anleitung und Diagramme. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
