Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 136-148-160-176-196-216 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with 1 thread in each color.
Work 6 rows garter st – SEE ABOVE - AT THE SAME TIME work 2 sts each side in 2 threads of each color(= 4 threads) for a firmer edge. Insert 2 markers in piece, 37-40-43-47-52-57 sts in from each side (back piece = 62-68-74-82-92-102 sts). Continue in moss st – SEE ABOVE – on all sts (continue to work 2 sts each side in 4 threads until finished measurements). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 8 cm dec 1 st on each side of both markers and repeat the dec when piece measures 15 cm = 128-140-152-168-188-208 sts. Continue in moss st. When piece measures 22 cm inc 1 st on each side of both markers and repeat the inc on every 4-4-4.5-5-5.5-6 cm a total of 3 times = 140-152-164-180-200-220 sts. When piece measures 35-36-37-38-39-40 cm cast off 6 sts each side for armhole (= 3 sts on each side of both markers) and now complete each piece separately.

BACK PIECE: = 58-64-70-78-88-98 sts.
Cast off to shape the armhole each side at the beg of every row: 2 sts 0-1-2-3-5-7 times and 1 st 0-0-1-2-2-2 times = 58-60-60-62-64-66 sts. When piece measures 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm cast off the middle 12-14-16-18-18-20 sts for neck and cast off 1 st on neckline on next row = 22-22-21-21-22-22 sts left on each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm.

Cast off for armhole at the side as described for back piece. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 37-38-39-40-41-42 cm, inc 1 st for lapel inside 2 edge sts towards mid front on every 4th row – SEE INCREASING TIP – a total of 8-8-9-9-10-10 times (incorporate the inc sts in moss st as you go along) = 43-44-45-46-48-49 sts. When piece measures 47-49-51-53-55-57 cm work 2 rows garter st on 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts towards mid front with 4 threads and then cast off the same 16-17-18-19-20-21 sts on next row from RS = 27-27-27-27-28-28 sts left on row.

Cast off when piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 34-36-36-38-40-42 sts on double pointed needles size 5.5 mm with 1 thread of each color.
Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). Work 6 rounds garter st – SEE ABOVE – and continue in moss st. When piece measures 5 cm inc 1 st on each side of marker and repeat the inc on every 3-3-2.5-2.5-2-2 cm a total of 13-14-16-16-17-18 times = 60-64-68-70-74-78 sts. Work inc sts in moss st. When piece measures 49-48-48-46-45-43 cm (less on the larger sizes because of longer sleeve cap and wider shoulder) cast off 6 sts mid under arm (= 3 sts on each side of marker) and complete piece back and forth on needle. AT THE SAME TIME cast off to shape the sleeve cap each side at the beg of every row: 2 sts 3-3-3-2-1-0 times, 1 st 2-3-4-9-14-20 times, then 2 sts each side until piece measures 55-55-56-56-57-57 cm, now cast off 3 sts each side 1 time and cast off remaining sts on next row.

Pick up between 46 and 56 sts (an even number) on needle size 5.5 mm with 2 threads of each color(= 4 threads) from RS. Beg by marker on left front piece, continue round neckline on back piece and finish by marker on right front piece. Work moss st until collar measures 3 cm.

Hej, i mönstret står det att arbetet skall mäta 37 cm (STL L) från botten upp till avmaskning för ärmhål. På diagrammet 60 cm??

DROPS Design 29.08.2019 kl. 08:47:

Hej. 60 cm (strl L) på måttskissen är måttet hela vägen upp till axeln. Mvh DROPS Design

June 25.07.2019 - 13:46:

Hej Drops. Jeg ville høre, om der var nogle garnalternativer? mvh June

DROPS Design 02.08.2019 kl. 09:38:

Hej June, ja prøv at bruge vores omregner (den ligger inde på opskriften til højre for billedet), her vil du få masser af alternativer. God fornøjelse!

Bente Voje 12.05.2019 - 12:58:

Tror det mangler noe vesentlig i oppskriften angående kragen. Det står at det skal settes 3 merketråder og det skal legges ut 1 maske på hver side av merketråden. Men hvor ofte mangler. Slik det ser ut i oppskriften er det bare en gang noe jeg tror er feil

DROPS Design 13.05.2019 kl. 07:24:

Hei Bente. Oppskriften stemmer. Du strikker opp masker med 4 tråder (2 tråder av hver farge), og setter 3 merker i arbeidet. Så økes 1 maske på hver side av hvert merke = 6 masker økt. Fortsett videre til kragen måler 14-14-15-16-16-17 cm. God fornøyelse

Anke 16.04.2019 - 18:00:

Hallo, ich wundere mich, dass man von beiden Farben gleich viel benötigt. Wenn ich es recht verstehe, werden nur die Randmaschen mit doppeltem Faden (beide Farben) gestrickt. Welche Farbe wurde für das Perlmuster verwendet?

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 10:40:

Liebe Anke, die Jacke wird mit je 1 Faden jeder Farbe (= 2 Fäden)ngestrickt, nur die 2 Randmaschen werden mit 2 Fäden jeder Farbe (= 4 Fäden) gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Luciana 17.03.2019 - 16:48:

Buonasera, vorrei sapere se si possono lavorare le maniche con i ferri circolari o diritti, grazie

DROPS Design 17.03.2019 kl. 19:57:

Buongiorno Luciana. Può lavorare le maniche con i ferri circolari o con i ferri dritti, a seconda di come si trova meglio. Se usa i ferri dritti e lavora in piano, aggiunga una maglia di margine da entrambi i lati, per la cucitura. Buon lavoro!

Luciana 14.03.2019 - 22:19:

Buonasera, una domanda, vorrei sapere cosa significa "aumentare 1 m. per il bavero verso il centro davanti ", devo aumentare alla fine del ferro o al centro? Grazie in anticipo

DROPS Design 14.03.2019 kl. 22:24:

Buongiorno Luciana. Deve aumentare alla fine del ferro. Buon lavoro!

Jane 01.01.2019 - 17:35:

Hello what is the gauge?

DROPS Design 01.01.2019 kl. 18:40:

Hello Jane. The correct gauge is: 16 sts x 30 rows worked in moss st with 2 threads of Alpaca. Happy knitting!

Samuel 01.12.2018 - 22:11:

¿Qué significa st en la descripción de la espalda? Saludos!

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 10:51:

Hola Samuel. Ha sido una errata: st = pt.

Elena 23.03.2018 - 19:48:

Chaqueta DROPS en pt arroz en ”Alpaca” con cuello. Talla S - XXXL..Hola buenas tardes, gracias por el nº de patrones tan bonitos que nos ofrecen. Mi pregunta es sobre la descripción patron , no entiendo que significa MP. Muchas gracias.

DROPS Design 29.03.2018 kl. 19:14:

Hola Elena, MP significa marcapuntos.

Susan Priestnall 22.03.2018 - 18:32:

Could I use Napal or Inca yarn instead of two threads of Alpaca?

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 09:53:

Dear Mrs Priestnall, sure you can replace 2 strands Alpaca with 1 strand Nepal - read more about alternatives and calculate new amount of yarn here. Happy knitting!
