----------------------------------------------------------
RIGHT LEG: Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 47-53-53 (59-65) sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. P 1 row from WS and continue as follows from RS: 4 garter sts (buttonhole edge) rib K3/P3, on the next 36-42-42 (48-54) sts and finish row with K3 and 4 garter sts (= buttonhole edge). Continue in rib with 4 garter sts each side, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 2 cm make buttonhole – SEE ABOVE. When piece measures 5 cm K 2 rows on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 11-13-9 (11-13) sts evenly on first row = 36-40-44 (48-52) sts. Change to needle size 4.5 mm and continue in stocking st with 4 garter sts each side. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 6 cm inc 1 st each side inside the 4 garter sts on every 3-3-4 (4-4) row a total of 9-10-11 (12-13) times = 54-60-66 (72-78) sts.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-30) cm cast off 4 sts each side = 46-52-58 (64-70) sts. Put piece aside and knit the other leg.

LEFT LEG: Like right leg, but make buttonholes on the opposite side.

BODY PIECE: Slip both legs on the same circular needle = 92-104-116 (128-140) sts. Insert 1 marker each side = 46-52-58 (64-70) sts between markers. Work next round as follows – beg on the left side of piece: 18-21-24 (27-30) stocking sts, P2, K2 in each of the next 2 sts (= K4), P2, K2 in each of the next 2 sts (= K4), P2 and work remaining sts in stocking st = 96-108-120 (132-144) sts. Work next round as follows: 18-21-24 (27-30) stocking sts, P2, M.1, P2, M.2, P2 and work remaining sts in stocking st.
Continue like this until piece measures 38-46-54 (59-66) cm. Now divide the piece by markers at sides and complete front and back pieces separately – NOTE: Make sure to divide piece so that the cable row in M.1 and M.2 sits on the RS.

FRONT PIECE: = 50-56-62 (68-74) sts. Continue in stocking st with cables as before, AT THE SAME TIME cast on new sts each side for sleeves. Cast on at the end of every row at the sides: 4 sts 2-1-1 (1-1) times, 6 sts 0-1-1 (2-1) times, 8 sts 1-1-1 (1-2) times and 9-9-13 (16-21) sts 1 time = 100-110-124 (148-168) sts – work inc sts in stocking st. When piece measures 44-53-61 (67-75) cm K2 tog on the 2 cables = 96-106-120 (144-164) sts. On next row slip the middle 10-10-12 (14-16) sts on a stitch holder for neck and complete each side separately.
RIGHT SHOULDER/SLEEVE: Continue as before, AT THE SAME TIME cast off to shape the neckline at the beg of every row from mid front: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 39-44-50 (61-70) sts left on shoulder/sleeve. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 46-55-64 (70-78) cm work garter st on the first 12-13-14 (15-16) sts from mid front (work remaining sts as before). After 4 rows garter st make 2 buttonholes as follows from RS: K2 tog, 1 YO, work 5-6-7 (8-9) sts, K2 tog, 1 YO, work remaining sts on row. Continue in stocking st with garter st on the first 12-13-14 (15-16) sts from mid front until piece measures 48-57-66 (72-80) cm, cast off.
LEFT SHOULDER/SLEEVE: Like right shoulder/sleeve, but mirrored = 39-44-50 (61-70) sts on shoulder/sleeve. Continue in stocking st until piece measures 48-57-66 (72-80) cm, cast off.

BACK PIECE = 46-52-58 (64-70) sts. Cast on new sts each side for sleeves as described for front piece = 96-106-120 (144-164) sts. When piece measures 46-55-64 (70-78) cm cast off the middle 16-16-18 (20-22) sts for neck and complete each side separately.
RIGHT SHOULDER/SLEEVE: = 40-45-51 (62-71) sts. Cast off 1 st on neckline on next row = 39-44-50 (61-70) sts. When piece measures 48-57-66 (72-80) cm cast off the first 27-31-36 (46-54) sts from sleeve edge towards shoulder. Work another 1.5 cm stocking st with 1 garter st each side on the remaining 12-13-14 (15-16) sts (= buttonhole edge). K 1 row from WS and cast off all sts from RS
LEFT SHOULDER/SLEEVE: Continue and cast off as described for right shoulder/sleeve, but mirrored = 39-44-50 (61-70) sts left on shoulder/sleeve. Continue in stocking st until piece measures 48-57-66 (72-80) cm, cast off.

ASSEMBLY: Sew upper arm seams, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam – on right shoulder only sew seam up to buttonhole edge.
CUFF: Pick up 38-44-50 (50-56) sts on needle size 3.5 mm along sleeve edge. K 2 rows and continue in rib, K3/P3, with 1 edge st each side. Cast off when rib measures 5 cm. Repeat along the other sleeve edge.

Bonjour j ai commencé le béret en 24 mois en suivant scrupuleusement les indications et le me retrouve avec un coté en angle et l autre droit. Ne faut il pas des augmentations et des diminutions de chaque coté des lisières ? MERCI DE VOTRE RÉPONSE

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 08:29:

Bonjour Mme Roig, les augmentations se font à gauche de chacun des 5 marqueurs (= 5 augmentations par rang), comme on augmente aussitôt après la 1ère maille, les augmentations seront plus visible de ce côté, car en fin de rang on augmente après le dernier marqueur, mais ainsi, on aura toujours le même nombre de mailles entre chaque marqueur quand la couture sera faite. Bon tricot!

Grethel 14.10.2018 - 20:06:

Tack för ett jättefint mönster! Förstår inte riktigt hur jag ska göra vid delningen på byxan till fram- och bakstycke. Ska bakstycket sättas på en tråd och ska rundstickan användas?

DROPS Design 18.10.2018 kl. 17:28:

Hej, du delar arb vid märket i varje sida. Du sätter maskorna över bakstycket på en tråd och fortsätter sticka fram och tilbaka på rundstickan.

I am knitting the beret and I find this pattern to be far too complicated than it needed to be. It would have been much easier to give the number of stitches in which to increase in each row, rather than putting in markers. It is a pity that the shaping of the crown was not shown in a photograph and that the point at which decreases are necessary were not simply numbered. Stating "to the left" of a point many rows previous is not so good. I prefer precision.

Nobutan 28.09.2018 - 21:56:

I am so sorry, I still don't understand. I somehow have to always be purling for the trousers to have stocking stitches. I don't know how to work on the RS if I am starting from the middle of the left leg.

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 07:54:

Dear Mrs Nobutan, take both pieces (legs) from RS and slip them onto the circular needle. Insert markers as expected and slip sts on to right needle to start on the left side of piece - continue working as explained from the side (= middle of left leg). You should have all K sts visible from the RS and all P sts inside (= WS). Happy knitting!

Nobutan 18.09.2018 - 01:00:

Thank you for your quick reply. So in my case the first 24 stocking stitches will be purl stitches? Unless the trousers are inside out then I can start with knit stitches?

DROPS Design 18.09.2018 kl. 09:20:

Dear Mrs Nobutan, you will now work in the round ie always from RS, the 24 sts stocking stitch will be knit until piece will be divided and continued separately. Happy knitting!

Nobutan 15.09.2018 - 21:56:

Hi, I am confused after slipping both legs on the circular needle. Reading the other comments I think I understand what you mean by knit from left side, as in the left of the piece in the shape of the trousers, but I am not sure if I should be starting from the RS or WR? I seem to have started from the WS so I will always be purling when working in round?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 08:53:

Dear Mrs Nobutan, all stitches from both legs are now worked in the round on the circular needle, ie you will start round on the left side (= in the middle of left leg) and will work from the right side of piece (= in the round). Happy knitting!

Nobutan 04.09.2018 - 00:04:

It says "RIGHT LEG: Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 47-53-53 (59-65) sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm" Does the 3.5mm needle for the rib also needs to be circular? Can I use a normal one side pointed needle? I am a beginner and a bit confused, thank you!

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 07:52:

Hi Nobutan, The use of a circular needle when working back and forth is so that you have room for all the stitches, but of course you can use a normal needle if you prefer. Happy knitting!

Marilyne 14.08.2018 - 22:13:

Bonjour! J'en suis rendue à compléter le devant en taille 6-9mois, et le patron indique qu'une fois à 53cm de hauteur totale, il faut tricoter ens à l'end les mailles des torsades. Ce faisant, j'obtiens un total de 106m et non 102 comme le dit le patron. (110-4 diminutions=106). En faisant les calculs pour les autres grandeurs, ceux-ci s'avèrent exactes (ex: 100-4 diminutions=96, etc). Serait-ce une petite erreur du patron ?

DROPS Design 16.08.2018 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Marilyne, merci pour votre retour, il s'agissait d'une faute de frappe, on doit bien avoir 106 m en taille 6/9 mois. Bon tricot!

Froilan Suarez Castillo 18.07.2018 - 07:25:

Los diagramas de las piezas son muy ilustrativos pero si se colocaran medidas serían excelente así se podría desarrollar mejor . Saludos

Agueda 09.12.2017 - 21:21:

Cuando dice tejer 1 hilera del revés por el lado reves, después de montar los puntos, como se haría la primera hilera porque después de montar los puntos la primera hilera es por el lado derecho, no entiendo cómo se haría. Muchas gracias

DROPS Design 17.12.2017 kl. 18:35:

Hola Agueda, no siempre en todos los patrones la primera fila es por el lado derecho; en algunos casos, como en este, la primera fila es por el lado revés, siempre hay que trabajar según el patrón.
