INCREASING TIP: Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker by making 1 YO. On return row work YO into back of st in order to avoid a hole.
Worked from side to side from sleeve towards the middle of jacket, in 2 pieces sewn tog mid back afterwards.

Worked back and forth on circular needle in garter st.
Cast on 36-38-40 (40-42) sts on circular needle size 3 mm [US 2or3] with Fabel and work garter st.
When piece measures 6-6-5 (5-6) cm [2 3/8”-2 3/8”-2” (2”-2 3/8”)] inc 1 st each side and repeat the inc on every 8th row a total of 6-7-9 (11-13) times = 48-52-58 (62-68) sts. Continue until piece measures 17-19-20 (25-29) cm [6¾”-7½”-8” (9¾”-11 3/8”)] – adjust so that next row is from RS.
BODY PIECE: K 1 row from RS, at the end of row cast on 41-43-50 (53-58) sts (= towards back piece) = 89-95-108 (115-126) sts.
Work return row. Insert a marker from RS in the second st on row (= right side of piece) and continue in garter st, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on each side of st with marker on every other row a total of 38-40-46 (48-50) times – SEE INCREASING TIP. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8½-9-10½ (11-12) cm [3¼”-3½”-4¼” (4 3/8”-4¾”)] continue on the last 60-65-74 (79-86) sts only on the left side of piece as seen from the RS (= back piece). Slip remaining sts on a stitch holder.

BACK PIECE: Continue until piece measures 13-14-16 (17-18) cm [5 1/8”-5½”-6¼” (6¾”-7”)] (from where sts were cast on for back piece), and bind off.

FRONT PIECE: Slip sts from stitch holder back on needle, but leave 9-10-10 (10-12) sts towards back piece on stitch holder for neckline. Continue to inc on every other row, AT THE SAME TIME bind off 1 st towards neckline on every 4th row a total of 6-7-7 (7-7) times.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 14-15-17 (18-19) cm [5½”-6”-6¾” (7”-7½”)] (from where inc for front pieces beg) bind off for 3-4-4 (5-5) buttonholes as follows (from neckline, i.e. from WS): work 2 sts, bind off 2 sts, * work 12-9-11 (9-10) sts, bind off 2 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 2-3-3 (4-4) times, and then work remaining sts on row. On return row cast on 2 new sts over the bind off sts.
After dec and inc are complete there are 90-93-109 (115-121) sts on row. Now bind off 51-52-62 (66-70) sts from WS from neckline and down along front band = 39-41-47 (49-51) sts left on row. Continue in garter st back and forth on these sts for approx 1-1-2 (2-3) cm [3/8”-3/8”-3/4” (3/4”-1 1/8”)] (fold piece double by shoulder to measure front piece to back piece) and bind off.

Like right half, but without buttonholes – this half is assembled with WS out.

Place the 2 halves towards each other and sew tog mid back – edge to edge in order to avoid a chunky seam. Fold jacket double and sew under arm and side seams in outer loops of sts. Sew on buttons.

Pick up 55 to 75 sts (incl sts on stitch holders) round neckline on circular needle size 3 mm [US 2or3] with Fabel. Work 3 rows garter st back and forth on needle and bind off.

Inc 1 st on each side of the 2 K sts mid back (marker sits between these 2 sts). Inc by working 2 sts in 1 st and incorporate inc sts in rib as you go along.

Dec 1 st on each side of marker mid front. Dec as follows before marker: K2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 56-60-64 (68-72) sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm [US 2or3] with Alpaca. Insert a marker at beg of round = inside of leg. Continue as follows: K1, * P2 / K2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P2 and K1. When piece measures 4 cm [1½”] inc 1 st on each side of marker by K 2 sts in 1 st on every 5-6-8 (9-12) round a total of 8 times = 72-76-80 (84-88) sts.
When leg measures 16-20-23 (25-33) cm [6¼”-8”-9” (9¾”-13”)] divide the piece by marker and continue back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip both legs on the same circular needle afterwards), AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 new st each side for seam = 74-78-82 (86-90) sts. When piece measures 18-22-25 (27-35) cm [7”-8¾”-9¾” (10 5/8”-13¾”)] bind off 5 sts each side (= 1 edge st, K1, P2 and K1) = 64-68-72 (76-80) sts. Put piece aside and knit the other leg in the same way.

Slip both legs on the same circular needle size 3 mm [US 2or3] = 128-136-144 (152-160) sts. Insert 1 marker mid front and 1 marker mid back (both markers should sit between 2 K sts). Continue in rib, K2 / P2, AT THE SAME TIME inc mid back and dec mid front as follows:
INC MID BACK: Inc 2 sts – SEE INCREASING TIP. Repeat the inc on every 4th round a total of 4 times.
DEC MID FRONT: Dec 2 sts – SEE DECREASING TIP. Repeat the dec on every 4th round a total of 8 times.

The light bulb just went off! So easy. I’m embarrassed I struggled for a whole day over this.

Cindy 12.08.2018 - 22:09:

Thank you for additional help. Am I to increase at both sides of the body piece? The directions do not say to do that.

DROPS Design 12.08.2018 kl. 22:27:

Dear Cindy, see Increasing tip-1: you have to increase 1 st on each side of st with marker every other row. Happy knitting!

Cindy 12.08.2018 - 05:01:

I’m having difficulty understanding section, Body Piece. Is the stitch marker placed at the second stitch from the last cast on stitch?

DROPS Design 12.08.2018 kl. 17:17:

Dear Cindy, you have to work one row from right side and at the end of this row you have to cast on the number of sts indicated. Then you have to work a return row from wrong side. Finally, again on the right side, you put a marker in the second stitch, so the marker is at the opposite side of the new cast on sts. Happy knitting!

Dorte Bonnerup 31.03.2018 - 13:34:

Jeg skal montere bukserne, men synes ikke vejledningen er helt skarp. Skal hvert ben sys sammen øverst langs kantmaskerne på de to "delte" centimeter, så hvert ben bliver de 2 cm længere, eller skal de aflukkede 5 masker på det ene bens forside sys sammen med de 5 aflukkede masker på det andet bens forside og det samme på bagsiden - hvorefter for og bag sys sammen i åbningen mellem benene?

DROPS Design 05.04.2018 kl. 13:37:

Hei Dorte De 2 cm på toppen av hvert ben skal sys sammen innenfor kantmasken. Den totale lengden på benet er medregnet de 2 cm. Videre skal de avfelte maskene sys sammen slik: forstykke på det ene benet skal sys sammen med forstykke på det andre benet. Det samme gjelder bakstykket. Du får da en søm som går mellom bena fra baksiden til forsiden. God fornøyelse

Vignal Chantal 18.11.2017 - 04:42:

Bonjour, le devant droit se présente comme une pointe plus longue que le dos, et les 47m tricotées ne sont plus dans l' alignement de la bordure du devant. Que faire avec cette partie?Que signifie plier en double à l' épaule pour mesurer le devant par rapport au dos?

DROPS Design 20.11.2017 kl. 08:33:

Bonjour Mme Vignal, le devant doit ressembler au schéma, la ligne pointillé en diagonale à partir de la manche correspond à la maille avec le marqueur (les augmentations se font de part et d'autre de cette maille). Pour vérifier la hauteur, pliez l'ouvrage le long de la ligne pointillé de la manche (= milieu manche et épaule) et vérifiez que le devant soit aussi long que le dos. Bon tricot!

Bine 11.08.2017 - 22:20:

Ein ganz tolles Jäckchen ist das!!! Mir ist allerdings auch nicht klar, was gemeint ist, wenn es beim Ärmel heißt: auf beiden Seiten aufnehmen. Soll ich eine Masche nach der ersten und vor der letzten M zunehmen? Oder wo genau, bitte? Denn bei Tipps zum Aufnehmen steht: auf beiden Seiten des Markierungsfadens. Aber hier befindet sich ja kein e Markierung.? Danke für eine Antwort

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 10:13:

Liebe Bine, ja genau bei den Ärmeln wird es so aufgenommen - TIPP ZUM AUFNEHMEN gilt für später, wenn Sie auf beiden Seiten der Markierungsfaden aufnehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kirsten Labove 10.05.2017 - 12:52:

Was passiert mit den 10 (o.ä.) Maschen, die auf dem Hilfsfaden verbleiben? Hatte die Maschen liegen lassen und weiter am Vorderteil gestrickt. Musste alles wieder aufmachen, bis dahin, wo die 10 Maschen liegen. Bitte um verständliche Beschreibung. Kirsten Labove

DROPS Design 10.05.2017 kl. 16:47:

Liebe Frau Labove, diese Maschen werden für die Halskante gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lucie Hébert 14.02.2017 - 15:11:

Bonjour, j'adore votre site et vos patrons qui sont habituellement très clair. Pour une première fois, je n'arrive pas à comprendre les explications de votre patron pour ce qui est de la partie avant. J'ai une pointe et je ne vois aucune explication pour combler le vide. Il y a sûrement quelque chose que je ne fais pas comme il faut. Merci de m'aider. Lucie

DROPS Design 15.02.2017 kl. 08:52:

Bonjour Mme Hébert, quand la manche est terminée, montez les m du dos en fin de rang sur l'endroit, puis au rang suivant sur l'endroit augmentez 1 m de chaque côté de la m avec le marqueur (= cette m = ligne en pointillés sur le devant dans le schéma). Bon tricot!

Claudia Krieger 17.08.2016 - 17:37:

Hallo, können Sie mir bitte helfen. Wenn die Maschen vom Hilfsfaden weiter gestrickt werden, verbleiben 9 auf dem Hilfsfaden, Ist das die Schulter und wann werden sie abgekettet. Vielen Dank und Grüße Claudia

DROPS Design 18.08.2016 kl. 08:39:

Liebe Claudia, die 9 Maschen sind für den Halsausschnitt.
